Repaint - Primer vs. Quality Repaint


I know there are 2 sides to the camp on this....

Just wrapped up taping , mudding and sanding lower 24" sheetrock. Got flooded. The new rock and all mud was all layered with Gardz. Sanded 100 Grit on all walls, etc. Walls are clean of dust, etc.

We are using Aura paint. I have used Aura in the past.

Assuming good color from Aura - what is the benefits on priming. Technically the walls are sound, clean and sealed..

PPG 625 or BM Fresh Start Premium

Agreed on the undamaged areas. Gardz should do the trick as a sealer/primer on the fixed areas. If not sure or it looks uneven, a coat of primer/underlay over all would be a good idea. Primers are configured to do the following things and the good ones never try to accomplish more than two or at best three at a time. Thank goodness you did not fall for the primer and paint in one. The wording is a little more careful than others but I see even Ben Moore as given in to the marketing scam.

SEALER
STAIN BLOCKER
PRIMER
UNDERLAY

For all you Pro's out there....
As it's all in the PREP....

With Aura paint, and a clean paint base .....do you guys still feel that a quality primer will help the paint adhere better to the wall, etc, etc, etc,

Or in my case, going over a golden yellow wall and painting to a cremish white....
I actually have a old pic of the yellow for reference.
Color code is: BM Marscapone

MD, there's no reason to prime already painted walls. I don't think it's going to increase your results. Aura will be self-priming, which means the first coat will serve as an effective seal/primer over previosly painted surfaces.

When you say primer- realize you are saying problem solver.
There are lots of kinds of problems, and a primer for each situation. But if there is no problem, like painted walls that just need to be repainted- then no primer is needed.

I would argue sealers/blockers/underlays/primers are also problem preventers.

Repaint - Primer vs. Quality Repaint


Got it. I also though primer promotes adhesion ? About a year ago I repainted our kitchen after 4 years of Muralo Ceramic and topped it off with BM Aura. Did not scuff at all or primed. It went on all....and is well to this very day.


Me scuffing the walls was to remove whatever top layer dirt and also give it some grit.
Current Paint on it is Muralo Ceramic.

adhering to glossy surfaces is one of those problems. Dirty (and especially greasy) however needs more than a primer- it needs to be cleaned.
A latex / waterborne in an eggshell or less sheen topped with another similar paint doesn't have an adhesion problem.

Great choices in paint, btw. Both of them.
