Can I prime walls using Behr primer then paint over the primer using Sherwin Williams paint?

    May simply be a poorly written query about using primer and paint from different manufacturers? Jul 22, 2016 at 15:47

The brand name on the can doesn't really matter, as long as the products are compatible. Read the labels, if your paint says that it cleans up with soap and water you should be able to use it over any type of primer.
