Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim11 Good Drywall Primer
Our condo had a fire that required new drywall on ceilings/floors. I purchased 2, 5 gallon pails of this glidden after reading poor reviews of the behr brand. This primer worked great. In 1 coat it completly covered all mudded,taped,red lined areas. After 1 hour it was dry, walls went from bare drywall to a white 1st layer you could almost live with. It looked like a white walled apartment. Buy this brand and you won't have any regrets. Now on to the Behr ultra paint....

I painted a new drywall and look fantastic and uniform with only one coat. Easy to clean the brush and rollers.

For the money, this is the best primer!
Covered a nasty denim blue in 2 coats!
Thought I'd need 5 gallons to cover an entire basement... only used 2 gallons!
Would recommend this to anyone looking for cheap primer and needing to cover a lot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MisterB Great Product!
We just painted our entire new home with this primer and are very satisfied with the results. I was unsure how this product would work since it had such a low price but I was not sorry about my choice. We used 55 gallons without any problems using a Titan paint prayer in about 7 hours. I would recommend this primer to anyone painting new drywall. It looked so good I wondered if we needed to put a top coat on it at all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amrie This paint went on easily and looked great when dry.
I used this primer over newly finished drywall on a 960 sq ft ceiling. It took about 4 gallons, so the coverage wasn't great, but the surface was smooth and even when dry. I was a little nervous about using a product that was so inexpensive compared to most other quality paints that I have used in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised. The paint was a good consistency and as easy to apply as any primer that I have used, even on the areas of old drywall that were uneven.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GregP Great interior/exterior product
As a contractor I need something that performs. I have been using Gripper for years with outstanding results. Raw wood, drywall/texture, over dark colors it doesn't matter. One coat of Gripper then put down your color and you are good to go. Great product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ShariG My favorite primer!
Glidden Gripper is my go-to primer. From finished wood to previously painted surfaces, this primer provides great adherence and gives a superior, smooth base for any paint project.
