Which Primer/Undercoat Do I Need?
Using a primer will ensure the full depth of colour of your chosen paint colour. Primer is vital to seal unpainted surfaces or prepare the surface for painting. If you are transitioning from a dark to a light colour, the primer has properties that will help obliterate the colour beneath before applying the topcoat. As well as ensuring your paint will last longer, you won’t have to worry about chipping, peeling or discolouration. Opting for a primer is a fail-safe way to achieve the perfect finish.
