Answer: 
I imagine it could be tinted but i'm not sure why you would need that. It accepts top coats well and is covered easily. Its best use is to cover bare wood or to cover stains or change dramatic colors then it needs a top coat.

Hi Beckster, I contacted Behr to get you an answer from their technical personal.
Behr stated you can add up to 2 ounces of a color, that will get you toward the color you want to paint the wall.
However you can not tint the primer to the same color as your paint. The reason is there is not enough room in the primer can to allow for a full paint formula to be added.
So what that means, if you're Read More

Absolutely not - however Home depot carriers exterior top-coat/primer mixed. Never us interior paint on your exterior. They contain very different resins and additives.

Answer: 
wouldn't recommend it as a top coat. It is best used as a base on bare wood or to cover stain that bleeds through top coats. no UV protection so it would fade fast in the sun.

I wouldn't recommend as a topcoat on your house. You will have better coverage, protection, and finished look with a quality topcoat paint. It's worth the time and investment for your home to do it right.

Answer: 
Hello! Primers should not be used as a top coat. We recommend that you apply a topcoat after you use a primer. The purpose of a primer is to give a good base for the top coat. If a primer is left on the surface without a topcoat it can yellow and chalk over time. Also, if a primer is not re-coated after a few weeks, you might experience issues such as poor adhesion and peeling when you decide to repaint. Read More

Answer: 
KIlz website says it can be applied to cured concrete and brick/mortar after 90 days but I would not use it on concrete myself. Concrete is porous and absorbs Moisture so alkyd primers aren't usually recommended for it. Go with KIlz Premium or KIlz Max (Apply after concrete has cured for 30 days).

Hello and thank you for your question. Yes, KILZ oil-based primers are suitable for use on masonry including concrete block as well as brick. For a more durable and flexible primer film, we suggest KILZ Complete interior/exterior oil base primer. Be sure to follow all back label instructions and best of luck on your project.

1-gal. White Oil-Based Interior/Exterior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coverage fell short I bought 1 gallon of Kilz Complete to paint pressure-treated plywood for an exterior application. I had left the pressure-treated plywood project unpainted for several weeks to allow it to become dry enough to absorb paint. The Kilz specifications state that it covers 300 - 400 sq ft. I only needed 215 sq ft of coverage, so bought 1 gallon. Unfortunately, it only covered about 150 sq ft...one half of the minimum 300 sq ft specified on the label! I bought another brand to finish the priming, and it seemed to cover at about the same rate, so perhaps my project was exceptional. I assume that a standard indoor project would deliver better coverage. I was very disappointed to have to stop in the middle of a messy project to drive to a store for another can of primer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK but not equal to Zinsser Cover Stain My local store was out of stock on Zinsser cover stain. I needed an oil base primer for new wood so I had to buy this. This was not pigmented nearly as well as the Zinsser, and did not cover nearly as well. Also it had to be stirred nearly constantly to keep whatever pigment was in the primer mixed, otherwise only the oil base would be applied. Real disappointment compared to the Zinsser cover stain, in addition to selling for 1.00 mor per gallon. I'll go across the street to Lowes instead of buying this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KILZ COMPLETE White Oil-Based interior/exterior primer The paint easily applied to a seating area that I built from old pallets. The seating would be stationary outdoors which is why i needed this product. The coverage over the untreated wood was perfect. It has rained on the finished product several times now and the sealer is working very well. Even the oil base paint washed off my hands easily with a gently soap scrub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was amazing. We rented a new house last Dec and the previous renters had painted the entire house a nasty purple. We tried using a store brand primer but the purple bled right through. So we went back and bought Kilz. It covered in one shot and I dont have to look at that purple anymore. Just love it...Thank you [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kilz I speak your name! We purchased some land in Montana that happened to have a small house on it. This small house has previously been a rental and the last renters had some issues. The first night laying on our air mattress my nose was assaulted by the combo smell of dirt and dog urine. I was confused, we had pulled up the carpet but no, that smell was in the floor. We bleached, scrubbed and still dirty urine stench would leave me awake at night. Enter my new boyfriend, Kilz. We put it everywhere. Ceiling, floor and walls. It's amazing and I want to kick my own *** for not doing this sooner and suffering with a gross, smelly bedroom. It was love at first smell. Thanks for saving our little house! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Product was used to seal and protect Northern exposure beam that was beginning to rot. I've covered it up now so I really don't know how it will do but have high expectations. Used some to prime raw wood and it wasn't as good as my regular primer. Nexttime I'll buy spray or quart--this stuff is difficult to get rid of with all the excess I have now. Won't use it as primer, water based is much easier, thicker.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from need a gas mask while kilz is a great product, the oil base has a very strong smell, I knew that ahead of time, it has been quite a few years since I have used oil base indoors, but per Home-Depot recommendation I purchased anyway , it was suggested this as best product for o s b board, after 5 days the smell is finally dissipating , hope it holds up over time.
