When Is It Okay to Use Paint-and-Primer-in-One on Interior Walls?

Have you ever wondered if you really need to prime your walls prior to painting or maybe if one of those paint and primer in one products would be good enough? Priming is one of those steps a professional painter would never think to skip but homeowners often do. Wanting to bypass this step is understandable as it is extra work, extra mess, and isn’t nearly as exciting as painting on that great new color. 

The truth is on some occasions you can get away with using a product with a built in primer, but the rest of the time you really should apply a primer first for an even, long-lasting finish.
