    Are the paints that are supposedly combined with primer a joke, or do they really work? To me, applying a separate coat of primer is necessary before the topcoat. I can’t see how a combined product would work. Do professional painters use these types of paints? It just seems like a gimmick manufacturers are using to sell more paint.

    They do provide better adhesion than other paint over essentially sound surfaces, but they are no substitute for a dedicated primer over problem surfaces or repaired areas.
