Primer question

I primed new drywall with a quality primer, but it was more than a month ago. Now the primer is peeling off with the painters tape. What do I need to do? Can I prime it again to "rejuvenate" the first coat?

Thanks, Mike

Primer question

First you need to figure out why the primer is coming off, it should not.


Priming over top will not help

Primer question

sometimes the rock is very dusty preventing the primer from penetrating.
Which primer?
