We’re going to repaint a light gray house with a mustard yellow. The house was painted less than 5 years ago and is in good shape. Do I need to prime? Is priming necessary to change colors?
Unless you have paint failure or peeling, priming should not be necessary. 2 coats of a top quality finish should have you just where you want to be.
I do have such pity on you for HAVING to live in such a dreadful place as the islands…. Oh the horrors. Need a painter for oh say 6 months or so?
