Rated 5 out of 5 by Kilz saved us a new floor Because of artistically placed furniture during our showing of this home we didn't see all of the nasty stains on the carpet until after the previous owner had moved. We had the carpets cleaned but realized too late that the stains and smell would not be resolved just with cleaning. We tore out the old carpet, but wouldn't you know it - the sub-floor had been fouled as well. Yuck. The carpet guys insisted that we would need to tear out the whole floor and install fresh wood, but we chose Kilz instead and blocked the odor completely with Kilz Max - which saved us the work and expense of replacing the floor. Yeah for Kilz! October 20, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by DOES NOT WORK OR AHEAR TO SEMI GLOSS this product kilz maxc does not work on semi gloss paint that was sanded cleaned and all done correctly the product seemed to grip on the correctly prepped area but after a 24 hour dry time on the primer sealer then a coat of semi gloss and dry time of 24 hours the paint and primer in 80% of the area can be pealed off in strips on flat paint so far it looks ok I would never use this product again on a semi gloss redo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tried Max hoping for the same results of Original I'm in the middle of a whole house renovation (water damage that wasn't addressed for several years) and starting out using and liking Kilz Original. While the results of Kilz Original were everything I was hoping for, when Max came out, I tried one gallon because I'm not an oil based fan (hate going to work with paint spots and don't like using harsh chemicals to remove them)...the results were just as great but not having to "deal" with the extra work/mess of oil based sealer turned me into a Kilz Max fan. To me, the extra cost of Max is worth it! March 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Done to the MAX Have used numerous KILZ products in my renovation business over the years but my favorite and most used is MAX. I could rant and rave for two or three pages but the bottom line is these products deliver and I have yet to find anything as robust and user friendly. If it makes my life easier them I'm on board. Thanks Kilz for being on my team. Regards, Don. February 18, 2014
