Summary of Steps on:
Modern paints contain only water, latex, and pigment; however, paint once contained lead-based chemicals. These chemicals acted as a glue to hold the paint to the surface being painted. Since modern paints lack the bonding agent, we must use primer before paint application. The primer acts as the glue to bond the paint to the surface of your home.
When you pick up a can of paint and look at the guarantee, the first thing you will notice is that it says this guarantee is in effect only when primer is used on all surfaces and TWO finish coats are applied.
Many Louisiana house painters today will merely spot-prime your home before painting it, neglecting much of the surface of the house. Some will even skip the second coat of paint after applying a thick first coat, telling you that it’s enough. Maybe it was enough with lead-based paints, but not anymore. That is why we apply a special primer to all surfaces to be coated to protect against bleed through and to provide a bonding surface for the coating to adhere to. This primer, when dry, is a sticky adhesive that acts as a bonding agent for the topcoat.
