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: 
The can states 300 - 400 sq ft which may be true for a standard interior project. I had an exterior project on bare pressure-treated plywood that had cured in the sun for several weeks to allow it to become dry enough to absorb paint, and only got about 150 sq ft per gallon.

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).

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product ! Good coverage and highly preferred over any latex product. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great stain cover up On my garage white concrete walls I had mildew stains that I sprayed with bleach but were still showing stains. So I brush painted on the KILZ paint and it covered the stain completely and even matched the white paint that was not stained. It worked great. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kilz Complete I bought this product to try and eliminate odor in a home we purchased at an auction. The prior owners left their dogs unattended in the basement and the smell was horrible. We tried pressure washing the walls and floors, we also hand scrubbed them using everything from bleach to vinegar and even expensive odor removers and nothing worked.... As a last resort I purchased 5 gallons of Kilz complete and applied it to the basement walls and floor and after just one coat the smell was gone!!! Great product to use if looking for an odor blocker! April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than Sherwin-Williams High end exterior alkyd primers Hands-down one of the best oil based primers I have used in every category except ease of use/application (even in this category it still did much better than many comparable primers). I used it to prime rough-cut Cedar slats on an intricate fence, wrought iron railing's, aluminum windows , rusted steel brackets, galvanized corner flashing. The adhesion is top rate, it's stain blocking is simply amazing, it's look when dried has been mistaken for a top coat, it will bridge uneven surfaces and help minimize the unwanted gaps and small errors. For its price it can't be beat as an all-around great primer. Addressing the application issues: this stuff becomes thick very quickly so you won't get the amount of coverage you normally expect from a gallon and in warmer weather's back rolling is like trying to roll Elmers glue. However if you can overcome this characteristic of the primer, you will be left with a great surface for applying your top coat. In addition I've never had any problems with other manufacturers paint over this or bad reactions when applying this. I have five years of full-time experience with four out of five of them spent on exterior work for the months of May - Sept. **Tips SHAKE/BLEND VERY WELL then scrape bottom with stir stick then blend again (quick). Keep covered when not using your brush/roller or in high temps and use a slightly smaller pail to reduce the surface area of primer (help slow solvent evaporation). November 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It's great I like this paint I used it to cover some slick wood April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kilz Works I use oil-based Kilz because it is cheaper than other primers and does a good job of preparing the surface for whatever else I want to put on it. I use the cheap purple dyed 2x4 studs for woodworking projects and Kilz covers that completely in two coats. It might do it in one, but I have time to do two. April 5, 2016
