Which paint prep is best to buy?

When choosing what paint prep is best for your job at hand, it’s important to understand what surface you will be painting like an exterior wall or perhaps roof tiles or if you’ll be painting wood or even metal. Knowing the surface on which you’ll be painting, as well as the condition of it, will help you and your friendly BUCO assistant know what prep products to use.

Make sure you have a clear understanding of how to prep before painting in order to get the best results from your products. If you’re not sure how to prep first, ask the team at your local BUCO store for help and expertise today.
