Painting New Home

I'm getting ready to paint the interior of my new home. The drywall contractor primed the entire house and then sprayed a light texture on the walls and a knockdown texture on the ceilings. Do I need to apply another coat of primer over the texture before I apply the topcoat?

Thanks for your help.

Welcome to the diy forums!


Priming the texture will both make the top coat look better and be more washable.
