I know this isn't the proper place to ask, but the work I'm going is more than your average DIY project. For one because it's the entire house, and two because of the condition of the existing paint.
What I'm looking for mainly is an answer to whether or not I need to prime these walls before I paint them? They don't have any specific stains, they are just generally grungy and dirty looking. I've asked around and gotten varying answers, which is why I'm here. One person also recommended that I wash the walls.
I've also learned that BEHR sucks, so I am leaning towards Sherwin Williams, or maybe a Valspar 2000 Contractor Satin that I'd heard about. Most of the recommendations I've been getting have been for the homeowner line and not the professional paint lines.
If it helps I'd like anything other than flat, but I understand flat covers stuff like this best. For what it's worth this will be a rental property.
Again I know I'll get flack but thanks in advance.
