Priming Priming timber is the process of applying a primer coat to the surface of the wood before painting or finishing it. Overall, priming timber can improve the adhesion, durability, and appearance of the final finish, while also providing protection against stains and wear and tear.
Improved adhesion

Priming timber can improve the adhesion of the paint or finish to the surface of the wood, creating a more even and durable finish.

Sealing the surface

Priming can seal the surface of the wood, preventing moisture and other contaminants from penetrating the wood and causing damage.

Protection against stains

Priming can provide a barrier against stains, preventing them from seeping into the wood and causing discolouration.

Enhanced durability

Priming can provide an additional layer of protection against wear and tear, increasing the durability of the wood and reducing the need for maintenance or repairs.

Improved appearance

Priming can help to create a smooth and even surface for the paint or finish, resulting in a more attractive and professional-looking finish.

Time and cost savings

Priming can reduce the number of coats of paint or finish required, saving time and reducing costs associated with additional coats.
