I decided to splurge on some high end Farrow & Ball paints for my new condo. The stuff is expensive so I want to make sure I maximize its depth and get my money's worth.
My question is this: the walls in my unit have all been either painted or primed white (I can't tell which). Given that the contractor probably only used one coat of whatever is on there, should I RE-PRIME the walls before painting, or should I just go ahead without thinking twice about it?
My main concern is porousness. I've heard that new dry wall can really "soak" up paint like a sponge.
