Which primer and undercoat are best to buy?

As with any painting job, knowing which product is best to buy really depends on the material being worked on. For example, you can use a wood primer on a metal surface or use cement primer on tiles. Before you buy, it’s best to understand what surface you’re working on and what your ideal final outcome is. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right products;

Tip #1 – Know your surface

First off, what surface are you prepping and painting? Knowing your surface or material that you’re going to be working with will help you know what product to get. There is a big difference between acrylic primer and undercoats versus water-based primer and undercoats, so it’s best to know this first.

Tip #2 – Where is the final product going to live?

Is the product you’re painting going to stand outside or is it outdoor walls or tiles that you’ll be painting? Or is the material going to live inside like a wooden table or interior walls? Knowing whether you need your primer, sealer, or undercoat to be weather-proof or water-proof is very important.
