Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I have just finished my basement with drywall and would like to put the best primer on the walls.

I would like to know what brand name is the best on the market and should you use PVA primer?

Also should you have them add the color to the primer that you are going to use?

By doing this when you go to paint your walls the under layer will dot come through.

Any help is very thankful.

I use Zinsser 123 interior/exterior. Great stuff, and you can get it colored to almost anything. Two light coats of this on fresh drywall and you are set for a top coat. As always I recommend spraying the primer and rolling the top coat.
