Primer buying guide

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb undercoat I am baffled by the negative reviews for this, perhaps they have changed the product since they were written. The previous "decorator" of my house did a shoddy job of the hallway with wall paper. After cutting out imperfections and filling and sanding I've used this all over the walls. It is fantastic. Don't expect miracles, if your walls need plastering, plaster them. Cracks are covered nicely. I two coated with a roller, I think in fairness you do have to work fairly rapidly, I think you have to go in with the plan to two coat thinly but rapidly rather than try to solve all problems in one go. But that is true of any decent primer, it is basically a glue which is really the whole point, it isn't a finishing paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use a paddle and drill to mix... I purchased this product before and can confirm the commonly cited complaints i.e. peeling and a rippled surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Star product It covered dark emulsion tester blocks and also helped mask very uneven walls after wallpaper had damaged the plaster - would definitely buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin Used this on my hallway which I didn't want to completely re plaster. I did a lot of preparation (filling/rubbing down) and then used the base coat for those small annoying imperfections ...hall was ready to paint...brilliant

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage Scraped polystyrene tiles off the ceiling, sanded down and covered with this product, it took 3 coats but saved us having to renew the ceiling. Big thumbs up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super coverage Used this to cover a very dark emulsion and it did the job very well. Its a thick mixture and applied better with a roller than a brush, I put a light dulux colour over it afterwards and the result is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polycell 3in 1 Basecoat I have used this product before and was delighted with it. It does just what it does on the can. It covers cracks, blocks stains and obliterates strong colours. I needed to cover up previous damp stains, small cracks in an Artex ceiling and cover quite a strong colour without the expense of several coats of paint and the labour involved. One coat of this product and one coat of Matt Emulsion on walls and ceilings...perfect finish. I have since moved and am about to start decorating again, so going by my previous experience. Polycell 3in 1 Basecoat was my must have purchase
