Answer: 
Yes, but sometime it takes 2 application or more. But the best is to wash before painting, eventhough the stain doesn't leave. It'll do with the primer.

Answer: 
Hello! For mold and mildew, we recommend you prime with KILZ Premium. Before primer application, make sure to kill mold and mildew with a solution of bleach and water or a cleaner formulated to kill mold. It is important to rinse well and allow surface to dry thoroughly to ensure no new mold and mildew formation. If you have any additional questions, please contact us directly at ask@kilz.com. Thanks!

Answer: 
From my experience the KILZ2 product may require more than one coat to completely cover water stains. Be sure to allow each coat to dry completely before adding another coat. Also, don't try to pile on a heavy coat of primer trying to cover the stain; two light to medium coats that are allowed to dry completely will work better. Original KILZ, the oil-based product, is better for water stains.

Answer: 
Yes, but the stucco needs to be clean and in good condition. For stucco I prefer an elastomeric paint. It is a little more expensive, but you can get a primer and top coat mix. This would make you do less work.

Answer: 
Yes. It is exterior and interior approved. If the stucco is in good shape you can use this with no worries. However, if stucco is cracked or flaky, you need to scrape and repair. I would use an elastomeric primer. This will help seal small cracks.

As a professional 50 degrees is my limit, and then only if the temperature is stead or increasing with no expected rain. Never 50 late in the day when the temperature is falling as moisture will be increasing and the paint will not dry properly. You must also consider other factors such as paint temperature (needs to be at or above your painting temperature). What your painting also needs the same guidelines. It may be 50 degrees outside but if your wall was facing north it may be a lot colder.
Now if you read my review of this product you will see I do not use it any more, product does not cover like in the past. I would recommend Zinsser Bull Eye 123. I fell it is a much better product for the same price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great primer! Looks great! I used 2 coats of primer before I put on my white paint! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase Is is a great paint for sealer and primer. Is easy to apply. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Runny junk We just sprayed 5 gallons of Kilz2 Latex primer 5 hours ago. It has not dried yet. About 2 hours ago we went over with a roller because it had started running down the walls. The runs were not visible when it was sprayed, they developed after hours of being on the wall. We were using the primer to cover semi-gloss paint. We have multiple fans running in the room trying to dry it out. You can still wipe it off the wall with a paper towel. Maybe we got a bad batch, but will be returning the second 5 gallon bucket we purchased. We have painted about 20-30 homes interior and exterior in the past, this is the worst primer we have used. September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good product - works as advertised Kilz works well as a primer and stain blocker. 1 coat is more translucent and stains will show through it but when you apply the color coat the stains do not come through. If you apply 2 coats you will get a more consistent solid color that is not translucent. For this project I used 2 coats to seal the replacement sheathing on a pole barn and to help brighten the inside of the building. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Latex base makes for easier clean-up We had a "bonus"/open area on the lower level of an older bi-level home we just bought that we made into an extra room by putting up a partition wall; and then created a 12' long closet in the new room. The entire area/room was paneled, so we tried the Kilz and finish coats in the closet first as a test area. We wanted to paint over the old wood paneling--typical '60's brown-stained luan--so we used Kilz as a primer-sealer before painting with latex wall paint. It took two coats--in some spots--to seal the luan and keep the color from coming through, but the end result--after the top coat--was very good. We're happy with the results and will use it again to finish the rest of the room. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kilz Primer Good product. Must be used before painting.Wait at least 2or 3 hours until totally dry before applying second hand,which I suggest. You'll see the difference. September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Did exactly what we expected it to do Product was what we wanted but needed to put on two coats, we were hopeful to cover in one coat. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked well to prep an aging deck The paint on my 25-year-old cedar deck was really peeling so I scraped it and primed with this Kilz product. It covered evenly and adhered well. I put two coats of paint over it several months ago and it's holding up well with no signs of chipping or peeling. August 28, 2016
