Low VOC interior primer


Need to paint two interior rooms and can't decide which place to go for low or zero VOC primer. I've had good luck with BM Eco Spec before but Sherwin Williams is having a 40% sale this weekend. Has anyone used either and has a recommendation? Thanks.

Stick with what you know and had luck with. First of all, SW prices are higher overall than BM. Secondly, if you're not happy for whatever reason with the SW, is it going to be worth the few little bucks you saved? Stick with what you know and had luck with.

I think Ben Moore may be matching SW prices for the sale. If not, they will be running one similar soon. The Ben Moore store or department manager may be able to match the discount in any event.

I would recommend using Benjamin Moore primer or paint. From our experience, they're slightly better when it comes to interior primer/paint.
Good Luck!

Low VOC interior primer


The majority of interior primers are around 100g/L VOC, which is low. There are also some no-VOC primers, which are generally higher grade products.

If you are repainting over a sound previously painted surface- unless it is glossy or would have other adhesion problems, a primer is not needed.
