Primer as finish

3823 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Dmax Consulting
Hello All,

Can tinted primer be used over exterior wood as a finish? What are the drawbacks and plusses, if there are any. I really would like to use a flat, exterior oil for a job. I use Benjamin Moore, but know of no products like this in their arsenal. Input appreciated.

Primers won't hold up. They don't have the same durability characteristics as paint. You will have problems if don't topcoat them.
