How much paint.

James Blackmon asked 10 years ago

When you paint over painted walls do you need to use primer paint first? I have been told if you don’t the paint will not stick. Is this true? Because it would be cheaper if I don’t use primer or two coats of paint so I can budget for my project. A worker at Home Depot told me you don’t need primer paint.

A primer is needed if there are repairs or if the new paint is not compatible with the old. example- latex over oil, must use a primer first.
