Not sure why all the fuss about this, If you told here about the primer and she did not want to pay then its pretty simple. This is what you get lady.. If you want it fixed then it will cost you a extra coat. Who freaking cares about what relationship she has with a GC you work for. A simple explanation of what happened and I'm sure the GC will understand. If he likes your work and prices I doubt he will stop using u. if so then fook him.

Now if you did not say anything about the primer, were trying to give her the nice "thanks" type of price then its on you. Just go roll another coat, bring here some donuts and all will be good.

Capt, I think the reason the better paints picture frame so bad is what they put in them to make them washable. Duration Home Matte can be a pain in the ass, especially if your going in behind someone that sprayed 1 coat of paint and no primer :whistling2:. Seriously though thats what it seems to me.

warned her but must fix regardless for she is the mother in law of gc i do work for.
I would of asked your GC to intervene and explain to Ms. know-it-all this will not go well. New drywall, no primer, cheap paint = perfect storm.

Not to mention this is a PROFESSIONAL forum.. I think us professionals know when use primer.....

Most of us also know that ProMar 200 picture frames more times than not, no matter how good the wall was primed.

Guess you gotta do what you gotta do, but it fries my butt to hear of a professional having to eat any part of a job because a HO refused to pay for what is considered SOP.

Guess you’ll have to write this one off as the cost of a learnable lesson.
