How to Use Primer

We use primer on the new walls or on the newly patched holes, as a sealant. It prevents them from the moisture. It provides an even finish to the final coat of the paint. There are different types of primer available in the market. Commonly, we use water based latex and oil based primers. Some primers are also available in alcohol base that work much better. There are few tips for using the primer for your house: You should use primer while painting the exterior portion or the interior portion of your house. It will provide the uniformity in the appearance of upper coat of the paint, and will long last the color. It will make the surface as easy to maintain.
