Prime

Area Preparation

Surface must be dry. Remove all loose, peeling paint, dirt, grease and any other surface contaminants. Putty all holes and caulk all open seams. Sand all glossy, rough and patched surfaces.

Follow these instructions to control exposure to other hazardous substances that may be released during surface preparation.

Application

Stir thoroughly and apply with a high-quality brush, roller or paint pad or by spray equipment. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. No thinning is usually required. If needed, add up to ¼ pint (118 milliliters) of water per U.S. gallon (3.78 liters) of paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White We have wood siding on our garage and haven't painted it again for 30 years. Our wood siding was dry and we didn't know if we would have to replace it or paint it. We bought a gallon to find out. The paint covered in one coat and we didn't have to replace our siding. We saved time and money with Olympic

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White I repainted my picket fence with the exterior primer and paint. This is the 2nd time in 4 years I have painted it. Previously I had used another brand name of paint and it did not hold up. The Olympic is faring so much better and looks so bright and clean. An outstanding product. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gray I am very impressed. I am a industrial painter by day and own a small painting outfit on the side that does very well. Ive used a wide range of paints and opt for the more expensive ones like sherwin williams pro 200 because i know i will have great resaults. But this was my first time using your product and i have to say nice job. No runs after my cuts and walls that were green i had no prob. Covering in one coat, very rare!!! Paint on brush held nice and smooth cuts and no splatter from the roller. Havent tried spraying yet but think i would like to give it a try maybe the next job. Thanks from Sams cut above...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tinted a custom coral color I used this recommended paint + primer, exterior, semi-gloss, to paint my brand new front door at the beginning of November. The door and paint job looked great until last week when the paint began looked streaked,faded, and just awful. I'm hoping Olympic will give some insight, as well as, giving me a refund for this product. Obviously I don't want to have to repaint my door every 1 1/2 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sarsaparilla, Hourglass This paint is wonderful. It was put on with a sprayer and went on so smooth and thick enough that one coat was all it took. It was firm enough that it did not run but thin enough that it did not orange peel. The drying was exceptional and quick. Since painting, we have had many rain storms and not a worry about the paint. No streaks, no fading, no issues. To top off the quality of this product, the cost is more than reasonable. The cost runs about 1/3 less than Sherwin Williams and Valspar without sacrificing quality.
