Adhesive primers are a type of latex primer used on difficult exterior surfaces such as metal and glazed brick. This is mainly used as an exterior primer because those materials are most often found outside. Regular latex-based primers are rather flexible even once dry, making them a great choice for drywall, fiber cement, and softwood. Oil-based primers, on the other hand, are best for covering damages because it penetrates deep into the surface to which it is applied. It is best used on hardwood because it acts as a natural sealant. Shellac primers prevent odors and mildew growth, so they are preferred for smoke- or water-damaged walls.

"The exterior of our Mountainside home desperately needed an update, but we didn't know who we could trust to do the job well. Once we started asking friends in Mountainside who they hired to paint their beautiful homes, our solution became clear. Solis Painting was recommended time and again for their expertise and professionalism. Solis repaired, prepped and painted our weathered siding, and the results are breathtaking! We couldn't be more thrilled to recommend Solis to our Mountainside friends and neighbors!"
Moreover, as business owners in the home improvement field ourselves, we were baffled by the lack of innovation in the industry.

If you are paying for your painting project per square foot, the costs vary between interior and exterior projects. The average painting cost per square foot for exterior painting projects ranges from $1.50 to $4. For interior painting, you can expect to pay between $2 and $6. Generally speaking, interior projects will be more expensive due to the complexity of the project. Even though exterior paint costs more than interior, it is more difficult to prep, paint, and clean rooms of various shapes and sizes versus the entire outside of a house. That’s why the overall cost is more per square foot.
If you plan on doing your painting project yourself, you obviously won’t have any labor costs, but keep in mind, you may need to buy more materials and tools.
Please note: these costs ranges don’t include cost of scaffolding or any consideration of condition where it may require repair work – this is only to give you an idea of cost.
As a general rule of thumb, newer homes involve much less prep work to start painting the exterior. New construction will already be on even ground and won’t have anything obstructing the sides so that it will be less time consuming and cheaper. The painters will be able to come on the site right after the exterior construction is complete.

The primary difference between the cost of interior paints ($10 to $70 per gallon) and exterior paints ($15 to $80 per gallon) is the resin. The resins used in exterior paints are softer, making them resistant to flaking, chipping, and sun damage. The interior paint uses a more rigid resin that resists marking and staining. Many exterior paints use a resin that causes outgassing, an emission of volatile organic compounds. Common to many manufactured products, it is what causes that “new car smell.” The outgassing from exterior paint resins continues for many years, even after the odor dissipates. It is a major reason professionals don't use or allow homeowners to use exterior paints indoors.
