Should I use primer first?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
Do I need to use primer first on bare walls?
How about bare wood?
What about on painted walls or wood?
Yes, I always use primer.
I like the Benjamin Moore PVA or Muralo 563. Primer needs to seal the wall, or wood, before the topcoat to prevent dull or shiny spots. It also allows the topcoat to stick much better to painted surfaces too.
