Exterior Primers

Best painting practices never change, and professional painters know that the key to a quality paint job is in the preparation and priming of the surfaces. Rodda manufactures a wide variety of specific primers and surface sealers & conditioners for most any substrate, surface or problem area. This step is important to help assure the long lasting durability and protection of the top coats. Rodda’s PrimeSolution brand of primers focus on solutions for hard to coat surfaces.
