Forum Title: Anybody 1st coat oil prime 2nd coat latex prime as standard procedure?
Doing some pine window casings that were planed before putting up so first coat of Enamel Undercoater really soaked in and raised the grain, therefore they will need a serious sanding. I plan on using Advance primer for the second coat because I want to minimize my use of oil primer and I don't really see the benefit of a second coat of oil primer. I will be using Advance semi-gloss for the finish. So does anybody regularly put a latex primer over an oil primer as standard procedure? Any redflags? With all the new water based primer formulations out there I just want be safe. BTW loving that Advance primer. Sands like a dream and levels like crazy. I use it a lot on baseboards and on the kicks and stringers of stairs. These areas tend to be more beat up than the other trim and also where 1 coat of finish works well.

I like to use bin on finished cabinets, then spray a latex undercoater on top of that for build. Why not use the advance primer for your first prime? If Im doing raw wood, I just do two coats of the latex undercoater.
