Primer - how long do you have to paint over?

kashka_katApril 1, 2013

Don't have my paint yet but have my primer - GARDZ. If I prime first, how long do I have before I have to paint over it?

If it takes a month or 2 to paint over with a top coat, will it be OK?

I have one room I primed back in 2003 and never did get around to painting - I know I'll have to prime over those walls again! Hopefully we will get er done this time.

I would not wait any longer than a month
