  • Do I need Two coats of primer before painting?

  • We are using a white primer on our walls. The consultant at the paint store recommends priming and then painting two coats. The skeptic in me thinks that want us to buy more paint by suggesting two coats. Realistically, when would I need two coats? If the walls look good after one coat do I need another coat?

  • How many primers do I need for a new wall?

  • Two primer coats are recommended in this scenario because much of the first primer coat will be soaked up by the wall; the second coat will replenish any primer absorbed by the surface and hide any flaws in the wall.

  • How many coats of paint does it take to finish?

  • It depends on the surface, the primer, the paint, any existing finish, technique, thickness of the coat of paint, etc. Covering up dark colors with light colors generally requires more coats, but a good primer can reduce the number of coats of paint needed. Using a tinted primer generally means fewer coats are needed. Show activity on this post.

  • What is the best primer and paint to use when painting?

  • My first advice is use quality products (always), Kilz 2 is a good primer, and Sherwin Williams is good paint. I know there are many others, but these are what I use. Secondly if you put a good solid coat of paint on your first coat, take a look at how it looks.
