Priming interior wall repaints


I've been painting alot of rooms lately and the only time a wall was primed was after a patch had dried. Using drywall compound priming was a must. Because blistering bubbles under new paint would show up if not used over the patch. Using good paint makes a difference. Not using a primer will show new patch work if a Satin or Semi Gloss is used. I Like SW or BM paints the best.

Priming interior wall repaints


Doesn't it depend on the type of wall it is, too? I was always under the impression drywall should be primed as a rule of thumb, but I'm not aware of how it is for other surfaces.

Very rarely
Raw wood and drywall, raw joint compound, mostly found in repairs in re-paints
Sealers may be needed for stains
Oil paints need primer if going over with latex
Glossy paints should have it after sanding...especially in bathrooms
Extreme color changes could be a reason
Mostly problem areas, like a wallpaper removal, or chalky or flaking old paint, those would need a specialty primer

Most basic color re-paints over good condition previous latex paint do not require primer
They need proper prep, which includes cleaning, sanding, and dusting
But not primer
