Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IronMike Peels right off
Thought this would help seal drywall and let me cover in 1 coat of paint, but caused a lot of extra work. It applied nice and dried fast. Appeared to seal very well until we painted it 2 days later. It just fell off the wall. Not sure if it was the paint we used on top,Sherwin Williams Ovation paint/primer in one, or an unknown factor. I've never had primer do this and thought Kilz was a good brand so I'm shocked. I won't be using it ever again though. Just keep applying 2 coats of paint. I'll be taking the rest back hoping to recoup some money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by peat14 Must buy for covering new drywall
In the process of refinishing our basement and a friend recommended I use this before the Behr goes on. It was pretty inexpensive so I went for it. I seriously could not be more pleased with the results. The paint went on easily and covered very well. It initially goes on gray which makes it easier to see any missed spots. It dries white, leaving you with the perfect base layer. Highly recommend this product, it seems like it let me use less of the color to go on top because it covered the drywall/mud so well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Malo Poor Quality Primer
This "high build" primer really isn't very thick. It did not do a good job of creating a uniform finish, even with a 3/4" nap roller (can still see differences in texture between drywall and mud). It also did not fill in a lot of blemishes and pinholes as expected. It was able to cover around 1200 square feet with one bucket. I will definitely use a higher quality high build primer next time as this primer is insufficient and a waste of money.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Must prime instead of paint and primer in 1
I primed my whole upstairs with this primer...in the basement I went with a top of the line paint and primer in 1 instead of priming my new drywall. That was a mistake! I used the same paint upstairs and downstairs...1 coat of paint upstairs and can't see any joint compound through the paint. In the basement I'm working on my 3rd coat cause I can still see the joint compound. use this primer on all new drywall works good

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CB71 A Quality Coat of Primer
When building my home I looked around for a good drywall primer. After talking with others and testing a couple of cheap primers, nothing when on as great as PVA Primer. I shot it on straight out of the bucket using a 517 tip, no thinning, and it dried rather smooth with great coverage on new drywall. After dried I lightly sanded, hit very few thin spots, and that was all. This primer is the real deal.

No odor at all! went on with a roller and coverage was excellent! slight grey tint to it, but dries super white in very little time! I will buy this product again and will highly recommend it to others!

It works well over old drywall to..i sprayed acomplete house but the only thing it will bleed through on old drywall so you have to go with the kilz original in some places before applying the kilz PVA
