How To Applying Primer onto a Window

Window Frame

Using a stir stick, thoroughly stir the primer.

Load a 2-3″ wide brush by dipping 1/3 of the bristle length into the primer.

Remove excess primer from the brush by tapping the bristles against the inside of the bucket.

Starting at the top of the window frame, brush primer onto the inside frame area.

Reload the brush as necessary to maintain a wet edge, approximately every 4-6″.

Continue applying the primer until the inside frame is complete.

Using a water-dampened rag, wipe any excess primer that may have overlapped onto the outside trim.

Allow to dry.

Window Sash

Raise the inside sash and lower the outside sash.

Brush the primer onto the outside sash, beginning with the crossbar.

Brush the primer onto the inside sash, beginning with the crossbar.

Move the sashes back approximately 1″ from their closed positions.

Brush primer onto all areas of the sashes that were obstructed.

Brush primer onto the window casing and sills.

Allow to dry.

Window Trim

Starting at the top section of the window trim, prime the edge where the wall and the window trim meet.

Reload the brush as necessary to maintain a wet edge, approximately every 4-6″.

Brush the primer onto the face of the window trim, starting at the top of the window.

When one side has been completed, continue priming the remaining window trim following the same steps.

Allow to dry.
