FAQ:

Q: Which is better latex or oil based primer?

A: Oil-based primers are excellent stain blockers. Whether it’s wood tannins from cedar, cigarette stains or water stains, these primers cover better than their latex cousins. Unlike latex primers, oil-based primer is not vapor permeable which can be a mixed blessing.

Q: Why use oil based primer?

A: Use an oil based primer for oil based paint. Oil based paints are usually more durable in exterior applications. Paint primers seal the wood reduce the amount of paint absorbed by the wood. They also stick to the wood and paint better than just paint alone and help cover marks like spray paint (graffiti), crayons etc..

Q: Can you use water based primer and latex paint?

A: Once you’ve primed over the old oil-based coating, you are ready to re-paint with a latex finish coat. Applying a primer coat over oil-based paint before painting with water-based paint will always ensure good adhesion and great results. Yet it is amazing how much paint technology has improved over that last 5-10 years.

Q: Can you use water-based primer over oil based paint?

A: Using Water-Based Paint Over Oil-Based Paint. Always prime when using water-based over oil-based paint. To prevent peeling and chipping in the drying and curing phase, use bonding primer-formulated to stick to glossy and other hard-to-paint surfaces-over the old oil-based coat for optimal paint adherence.
