1. Using Multiple Coats of Paint Means You Don't Need Primer

In most cases, using a primer is essential and is useful for many reasons. Not only will using a primer help the paint properly adhere to the wall, it will also give your walls a more professional look, contributing to the overall desired outcome. Therefore, it is important not to skip primer for the vast majority of interior painting projects.

2. You Do Not Need to Clean the Walls if You Use Primer

Using a primer prepares the surface for the paint. However, using a primer does not eliminate the need to clean your walls. To ensure the primer adheres properly and your walls are fully prepped for a quality paint job, it is important to clean your walls, removing any dust, dirt, grease, or other stains.

3. It Doesn't Matter Which Brand/Type of Paint You Use

Not all paints are created equal. Different types of surfaces and even specific rooms require different types of paint and paint finishes. In addition, investing in higher quality paint will produce lasting results, saving you from having to frequently repaint and spend even more money.

4. Completing the Project Yourself is Cheaper than Hiring a Professional

Many folks believe it is cheaper to complete their commercial or residential interior painting projects themselves rather than hiring a professional. In truth, professional painting contractors have the specific equipment and expertise needed to complete a high-quality paint job that lasts, saving you time and money in the long run.
