Interior Primers

The foundation to a great paint job begins with the right primer.  Best painting practices will always include preparation and the priming or sealing the surface for the best top coat durability and finish.  Some competitor paints claim to be paint and primer in one, but always require a minimum of two coats!  If you know it is best to prime, then use the best primer!  Since 1932, Rodda Paints still manufactures primers, sealers, enamel undercoaters and conditioners for specific projects and surfaces. Rodda’s PrimeSolution brand of primers focus on solutions for hard to coat surfaces.
