Why must a wall be primed with Sheetrock® Brand First Coat Primer before painting or texturing?
Sheetrock® Brand First Coat Primer is a flat latex wall primer that equalizes surface texture and porosity differences between the drywall face-paper and areas finished with joint compound to minimize drywall decorating problems.
Why do I need a primer?
Finish painting problems over new drywall are often caused by differences between the porosities and surface textures of gypsum panel face paper, and the finished joint compound. Decorating problems are magnified by the use of gloss paints. Then, when viewed in natural lighting, the joints and fasteners in decorated walls and ceilings may be visible.
