Valspar® Oil Based Exterior Primer

  • Premium whole house primer
  • Blocks wax and tannin bleed on wood siding and trim
  • Promotes maximum adhesion and durability of paint
  • Seals bare wood
  • Gives mildew resistant finish
  • Tintable
Valspar® Exterior Oil Primer is the perfect base coat for all oil and latex house paints, adding long-lasting protection to your home as it resists weather-related problems such as peeling and blistering. Gives a mildew-resistant coating that helps promote top coat adhesion as it seals and primes exterior surfaces.
Where To Use

Use primer on properly prepared exterior surfaces such as hardboard siding and trim, bare wood and previously painted, unprimed wood siding and trim, bare redwood, cedar, cypress, fir or gummy pine.

One gallon of primer covers up to 400 square feet (37.2 m2) over painted or primed surfaces, less over rough or porous surfaces.
