Often customers want to know how many coats of paint to apply to the interior of their home.

  • The first coat is primer specific. oil, latex, color blocking, odor-blocking, shellac primer should be applied if the paint is anything other than latex.
  • If the current paint job is in good shape, generally two coats of paint will do the job. Unless, your new color is a brighter color, like yellow, red, blue, green. They generally require an additional coat (third coat).
