SW Premium Wall and Wood vs. Zinsser 1-2-3

wolfgang80September 14, 2012

For the majority of our interior walls, we have put up kiln dried 1x8 spruce planks, which we now are going to paint. I've read previous threads about primers and the general directive is to pick a high quality primer. The Bullseye 123 is often mentioned as being a high quality pick. Because the SW store is convenient to us and we have a contractor's account there, we are also considering their Premium Wall and Wood primer, which, with discount, is only marginally more expensive than the 123. Do any of you have any experience with this SW primer? Is it even as good as the 123? If it makes any difference, our top coat will have a matte finish.

Thanks for your input.

I would go with the SW, 123 will work but it is more formulated for other purposes.(IMO)

I wanted to follow up. We rolled on 1,500 sf of the SW Premium Wall and Wood primer this weekend. I thought it was wonderful stuff. Thanks for the advice.
