Drywall priming is not the same as painting. Unlike paint, the main ingredient in primer is polyvinyl acetate or PVA, the same ingredient in carpenter’s glue. The primary job of primer is to seal the porous surfaces of the drywall and dried joint compound, making them more receptive to new paint. The PVA in drywall primer adheres to unfinished drywall better than paint, whereas paint adheres better to primer than it does to drywall.

Drywall primer comes in a variety grades, with some, like high-build varieties filling small nicks and ridges in drywall joints better than paint, creating a smoother, more even appearance.

When Drywall Priming is Required

Although in some situations, you may be able to get away with using a self-priming paint instead of a primer, there are other situations where primer is the only options. One of these is when you are painting over stained or water-damaged drywall. The primer will help prevent bleed-through and uneven coloring.

Other situations that require drywall priming include when you are going to hang wallpaper, or when you are repainting a wall that has a gloss coat.

Concrete staining can transform concrete floors, driveways, porches, pool decks, countertops and even walls with a luxurious richness that can’t be achieve by any other coloring medium. Stain permeates the concrete to create a luminous and translucent tones that will vary depending on the surface they are applied to and the techniques used. Decorative acid stain, dye stains, semi-transparent staining all offer a different look and feel. The results can be everything from tanned leather to marble or natural stone or even stained wood.

Concrete sealers are applied to concrete to protect if from surface damage, corrosion and staining. We have salt guard sealers and non-film forming water repellent sealers to reduce absorption of water and salt or form a layer which prevents such materials from passing.

By sealing your concrete surfaces you will not only increase the concrete’s longevity but will provide protection from oil spills and other stains as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays. Sealing reduces spalling (destruction caused by the freeze-thaw cycle), flaking and cracking and is will help to make your concrete surface mold and mildew resistant. When concrete is exposed to the elements, it can become discolored, this can make your concrete look old and dingy. Sealing will protect your concrete surfaces and will add value to your home by improving the appearance and curb appeal.
