The principle goal of using prime paint is to make it possible for the paint to coat the sheetrock without much difficulty. Most paint projects require priming the surface at the beginning before completing the paint project. However, not all jobs involving the painting of drywall, necessitates priming.
New wallboard sometimes poses difficulties during painting because the surface at times may have up to three different textures. Each of these different textures can have different absorption rates. While some compositions of the wallboard may absorb color vigorously, other surfaces may absorb after a bit of a delay. Using a primer allows us to maintain a uniform layer of paint during application.
Here is what the primer provides;
- Color equalization:
When primer is used on the drywall, the color appears even and uniform throughout the entire surface of the sheetrock.
- Porosity equalization:
Primer is a porosity equalizer. It makes even, the areas lacking a uniform non-porous surface so that the paint can adhere properly to the wall.

Hiding paint is a specific latex paint with an enhanced color-hiding property. We use hiding paints to cover stains on drywall in order to maintain its beauty and perfect look.
