Customer Questions & Answers

Can we use this on the garage floor?

The lady we bought our house from smoked in the garage. What can I use on the floor?
Asked by: shelly
No, there are specific products for your issue. Go in and get someone in the paint department to show you them. They will work much better, especially on concrete.

Max over wall that has wallpaper glue

Removed wallpaper; glue laborious to remove. Can Max be used over wall that has wallpaper glue? Thanks!
Asked by: BobJax
I wouldn't use it over glue of any kind. Prep work is essential. You need to strip off the glue.

Customer Reviews

MAX 1-gal. White Water-Based Interior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 156.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covered smoke smell We purchased a home that had 40 years of smoke on the walls. We needed a primer that would cover the smoke smell after we TSP washed the walls. The smell was quite intense in the home. In one of the rooms, we used the Kilz 2 thinking it did a good job and after we painted over it, within a week we could smell the smoke again. Especially in the summer heat. We went back to the Max to take care of the smoke. It did a very good job on the first round. I would recommend it for any house trying to cover many years of smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Cabinets As a painter, I have painted several sets of cabinets. As there seems to be a trend of painting previously stained cabinets, I needed a good primer to keep the stain from bleeding through and to avoid the time of sanding. This product is easy to brush, roll, or spray. I recommend this product on a regular basis. The only primer I use. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance! Killz is the only way to go and the only primer I will use. Their products turn gruelling cover ups into a quick, easy task. I recommend Killz to everyone! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive. I bought a 50-year-old house and was working to restore a basement utility room that had been used as a kitchen by a past owner. It was bad - my daughter called it a "murder scene". The walls were plaster over cinder block with many coats of unknown type paints. After some cleaning and light sanding with 220 grit paper, I was going to use a shellac-based primer. No windows in this room and minimal ventilation, so I wasn't looking forward to it. Then I ran across this stuff. It went on easy and covered all of the stains, marks and splatters that were on the walls. In one coat. I don't give away five stars easily, but this stuff is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eliminates pet odors My husband and I bought a home that was "pet friendly" before being vacant for a couple years. When we removed the carpet to install new flooring we painted all the sub flooring and baseboards with kilz max. It's easy to use and removed all the musty and pet smells.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't hide red ceader shingles Product is very watery. Almost thought this might have been defective. Gave the can a good mix and applied to red ceader perfection shingle siding. Then two top coats of high quality high hiding paint. The ceader started bleeding through in just a couple of days and keeps getting worse. One of the items listed on the can is red ceader which is why I bought it. Save yourself the money and go with zinnser or the regular kilz this ones not worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best latex primer I've ever used I used kilz max on a customers house recently. They had a grease fire in the kitchen so the ceilings and walls were heavily covered with smoke damage. I sprayed two coats of kilz max on ceilings and walls. The product covered so well I could have just left the ceilings with no top coat. I recommend this product to pros and home owners. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I used Kilz Max as a bond/seal coat on some old Luann hollow core doors that I suspected to have some nicotine stains. It sprayed really well without thinning with an airless 311 tip. Seemed to have good adhesion and it sealed the doors completely. It does have an unusual odor that takes a day or two to dissipate but nothing like an oil primer. I will happily use this again on my next set of doors.
