Priming today


texting ready to prime our den today with Zinzer 1,2,3. Should we do the ceiling first? Any other tips would be great. We are priming over new drywall and compound. Thanks

Priming today


Make sure the Sheetrock is free of dust, especially the joints and nails. If you have a shop vac with a brush its good to vacuum the walls. Wiping with a slightly damp cloth works also.Most adhesion problems on Sheetrock are caused by painting over dust.

Yes, do the ceiling first. Don't be stingy with the primer, put a good heavy coat on.

Good luck!
