If everything worked the way they say it does than we would all have Sham Wows, that self retracting garden hose, we wouldn't need windshield wipers on our cars, etc, etc.

a bashed corner bead is a paint problem when the corner gets hit and then the paint peels the whole 10-12" wide and 8' high where the drywall compound is. i've had to deal with it on a number of jobs. the paint soaks into the drywall but not the drywall compund. its to smooth and hard for just paint to soak into. prime your bare drywall people. do what you know works.

Went to a local SW store to see about getting some sealer and primer as the drywall is about to go in. Need a boatload and thought okay they have nagged me enough on DIY I will go check out Sherwin Williams. Never been to this store before - this is what transpired - abbreviated version but you get the gist.....

Me - Need some drywall sealer and primer for house with new drywall.

Chick behind counter - You don't need to seal or prime new drywall. Priming is for going over older paint. You don't ever need to prime new drywall. Just do two coats of paint and it will be fine

Me - ummmmm....I think I do need to prime it what about the drywall fuzzies (note the technical term) from sanding and flashing from the taping and mudding.

Chick - Nope don't need it just two coats of paint. Trust me I have been painting for years.

Ended up getting out of there as quick as I could. Talk about losing a big sale and not so good advice.




So I got on the yelling bone to the hubby and asked for the other location nearby....Polar opposites. Told him what the other store said and he just shook his head. This store was great and the guy happened to be the manager and after hearing what we are dealing with even went so far as to offer us some deep discounts that will allow us to get da good stuff at the box store prices....so now we shall see if this stuff is worth all the fuss

I went into a SW store for the first time probably in 30 or more years. I was buying their ProClassic paint, but also was looking for glaze to put a top coat antiquing finish on my doors.
Again, there was a young girl there all by herself. I asked where is your glaze, I can't seem to locate it. She asked what it was for, I told her my kitchen cabinets. She acted as if she never heard of the glazing process. She then proceeded to walk me over to glaze that you use for glass windows for those older type windows when replacing smaller lites like my parents have done years previous. How can you work in a paint store that sells paint, stains, supplies and never heard of someone glazing their furniture/cabinets? lol

well I was already there, and it was a 20 min ride one way to the big box store, so figured this time I would just buy it at SW :D

They had 40% off that weekend

Wanted to update this thread since I finally got some freaking paint on a wall lol.

Did as stated in the closet. Had one section that I did not put on the SW pva primer (almost forgot and did the whole shebang).

Put the two coats of SW Duration on and yup....the section that I did not prime was like I had invented a wormhole, it was all I could do to grab the paint can and stop the wall from sucking me and the whole can in.

I could definitely see a difference in the unprimed section versus the primed after one coat and slight difference after the second coat. Not just a color thing, but also a little bit of a difference in the texture. The primed wall is smoother.

I will definitely keep priming nekked drywall. I really think that if you are using a higher grade of paint its not worth the money to have the first coat be the primer, at least if you are buying Duration and left your inheritance in your other pants.

Thanks for the update Robin. I hope you can post some pics of your project.


Just a note on the Paint&primer theme that we were discussing in this thread. I don't think it was ever mentioned what specific SW brand was being used until now (or if it was I missed it)

Duration Home Interior paint is actually not a paint & primer and/or self priming product. Unlike some other SW lines (Emerald, super paint), Duration calls for a primer on new Sheetrock.

http://www.sherwin-williams.com/docu.../035777440254/

So, back to the OP. if an SW employer was trying to tell you not to prime for Duration interior specifically, they really didn't know what they were talking about and were miss representing the product specs.

Yeah there is a definite difference between the two stores down here. The second store I found (and the one I am dealing with) really know their stuff and have been very helpful. I am glad that I did take a chance and go there - based on my first store experience I would have not dealt with SW at all.

The Benjamin Moore equivalent to Sherwin Williams SuperPaint is Regal (although there is Regal Classic, Regal Premium, and Regal Select). The BM equivalent to SW Duration is Aura.

Regal is self-priming (except for Premium). SuperPaint is self-priming.

Aura is self-priming. Duration is not.

Go figure.
