Bare wood anyplace that's going to get painted always gets primed.

Yes- and a slow penetrating oil is best- ask at a real paint store

If the new wood is part of a porch floor you plan to paint you should think about sealing or treating it but do not use a primer. Primers are just not built to walk on. And Porch, Floor and Patio Paints are self-priming (not primer and paint in one though). In fact, most specifically recommend you not use a primer under them.

A sealer of 50 percent solvents and 50 percent processed (not raw) lindseed oil is as good as any. Let the solvents evaporate and then follow with either Benjamin Moore Oil Based or Water Based Porch, Floor and Patio Paint. The oil based is urethane reinforced and the waterbased is epoxy reinforced. The oil based is slightly glossier which can make it more slippery when wet.

primer guestion


I've watched my neighbor paint the same window frames 3 times with the miracle PnP in one, and every year it peels off. The first time he asked me what to do-
But nobody wants to do that work.

"If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when do you think you will have time to re do it?
