    Q:Is primer included in paint?
    by|Dec 8, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Donna, thanks for your question! Yes, this is a paint and primer in one. Surfaces to be coated must be dry. Remove all loose and peeling paint, dirt, grease and any other surface contaminants. Putty all nail holes and caulk all cracks and open seams. Sand all glossy, rough, and patched surfaces. Masonry and plaster surfaces must be allowed to cure for 30 days prior to painting. Uncoated substrates, repaired surfaces or lightly stained areas may require additional coats. For severe stains, water marks, and other challenging conditions, use a premium problem solving primer. When Glidden Premium paint is applied to an uncoated substrate, two coats are required, with the first coat acting as the primer. For stains, water marks, and challenging conditions use an appropriate high-quality primer.

            Absolutely gorgeous!
            Did not realize it had a blue under hue but ended up working great as I had just recently painted my kitchen cabinets a rich blue color so it played off very nicely! Everyone always comments on how nice the colors are and how complimentary they are of each other.

              This paint is surprisingly good. Good coverage, easy to cut in, and most importantly budget friendly. Make sure to prime your walls first for best results. I painted about 500 sq feet using almost 4 gallons of semi gloss and 2 coats. Not sure how much better the pricier paints are but this satisfied my needs. I liked how well elemental came out for my living room. Much lighter than my previous paint.

                The PERFECT gray. Not blue for us at all.
                We were a little nervous to get this pain color because so many reviewers felt it was more of a light blue. We are so glad that we did it! Elemental is the perfect pale gray on the cool end of the spectrum. We did 1 coat primer and 2 coats Elemental.

                  The paint is wonderful. It covered non primed new Sheetrock mud and tape with one coat. The color looks white. Very disappointed in the paper paint sample vs what it looks like on the walls. Still stinks and that was 3 weeks ago. Smell is slowly getting better.

                          Great color for our new master bathroom! Since it's a brand-new wall, 1 coat covered perfectly.

                          Not the best for coverage, too many coats needed
                          will be choosing a better paint, this needs good room ventilation or use a respirator with ventilation. it is semi-good for primer but needs min two coats or more for hiding old paint underneath

                            Great Paint!!!
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the Glidden Essentials™ Interior Paint. It is just a great brand of paint that you're not going to break the bank when buying it. It works just as good as any other name brand paint. Im very pleased with the end product it went on smooth and coverage was amazing!
