Answer: 
I would think that you would need a special paint and/or primer for this but not sure. Bulls Eye 1-2-3 primer by Zinsser should do it. It is great primer. You can use on glossy surfaces without sanding, it is also used on concrete and a number of other surfaces. Most primers will not do this. It is also mold and mildew resistant. I would recommend trying this one. I love it.

Answer: 
Probably. I used it on cinder block and it worked. I like to use two coats because it gives it a more even look.
If you are going to cover it with tile or carpet then one coat should be fine.

Answer: 
No Michael,
Kilz Premium is not a flooring primer.
Try Behr #436.
It is intended for floors and lists concrete among the many surfaces to which it will adhere.

My new house paint peeling off when I tape test and I can fell under layer has white powder like dust. It is almost every where. I don't think I have time to go over them. So my idea is just primer over then topcoat later.

Answer: 
Hello Allan,
Thanks for your interest in our Kilz Premium primer. We would strongly recommend first removing whatever is loose of that existing paint followed by sanding the frayed edges smooth. Then, clean the whole surface with soap and water and allow it to fully dry before applying our primer. Not doing either of these steps could lead to adhesion problems. Best wishes!

Answer: 
To get good adhesion the dust must be cleaned off.
Paint does not adhere well to dusty surfaces and can
cause clumping.
Even vacuuming with a brush attachment is better than
doing nothing.

You have to remove the mold first. there may be black staining from the mold but the mold must be dead and removed before painting over it. Otherwise, the paint won't stick to the mold and peel. Mold is like fine dust so it prevents adherence of paint. Depending on the extent of the area that is moldy you may want to take down the affected area and put up new sheetrock (green board).

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. If your walls have mold, we suggest treatment to remove the mold completely first before you prime. Once the surface is mold-free and fully dried, we suggest either KILZ 2 or KILZ Premium to prime. Both of these products have a mildew-resistant finish. Hope this helps and best of luck on your project!

Answer: 
If you have an oil stain it is best to use the Oil Base KILZ.
A low sheen Shellac will also probably work.
Both need Brush cleaner for clean-up, water will not work.

Answer: 
It depends on what kind of oil and how heavily saturated the wall is. If there is a lot of oil on the walls it may break down even oil based KILZ. Water based KILZ will not work over oil stains, in my opinion, and experience water based KILZ is a waste of time and money; use oil based KILZ, if the area is not to big get a spray can of oil based KILZ and use that, I use that a lot.

Hi G123. Thank you for your inquiry. This is one of the main reasons why you need to use a primer before painting. The primer will seal any porous surfaces on your drywall, help smoothen the surface, give better adhesion for the paint to grip to and to block/hide any stains that you don’t want to bleed through your new paint. After ensuring the drywall is clean and dry, apply a coat of stainblocking primer with a brush, roller or spray as you would like painting. KILZ Premium is a good choice of primer for this. After you've applied the primer, allow to dry for at least 1-2 hours. If the oil stains are very strong or bleed through the primer, a second spot coat can be added to those areas with the stains. The stain does not have to be completely hidden by the primer. The primer will prevent the stain from bleeding through to the paint but the primer itself is not always going to hide the stain completely. After primer is dry, then it is ready for paint to be applied. The paint will provide the new color and finish and the stains should no longer be visible. Read Less

PREMIUM 1-Qt. White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 148.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I was recommended to use Kilz primer before painting my 100 year old kitchen. I decided to take on the project of peeling wallpaper, washing and scrubbing walls, mudding and sanding all by myself just to see if I could and your primer gave me reassurance that my walls would come out look great. I used your paint afterwards and my kitchen looks amazing! I have used your products while in college and I have always been very pleased and I have always loved how thick the products go on and how they cover up imperfections. I have more rooms to pull wallpaper off and your products will be there to help me along the way just as they always have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our last house We recently purchased a double wide mobile home on an acre of wooded land in the Florida panhandle. It had been owned by an old man and had been very poorly taken care of. When we walked in it smelled like someone had died in there but later found it to be tons and tons of urine tains on the floor from pets. all the floor covering had been stripped. The ceilings were yellow with cigarette smoke. We painted the floor with the kilz premium and the smell virtually disappeared and used the kilz ceiling paint and they are bright white again. Very pleased with your products! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to use, and low odor!! I pulled the paneling off of one wall in my house for what I thought would be a quick project. Of course, the sheet rock underneath had not been finished out. I also discovered what appeared to be mold or mildew on one section. My dad recommended Kilz. We went to the store and purchased the Premium. I painted the entire area. There was hardly any noticeable odor, it went on very smooth, and covered completely. I was extremely satisfied and will be using it on the other walls and future projects!!! Thank you Kilz!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works Used this product in the past and was not particularly satisfied. I had expected it to successfully cover and seal stains with one coat, but it didn't always. This time I applied 3-4 coats, and it seemed to to work very well. Also found that applying with a roller seems to leave a less smooth surface with no brush lines which matches the original paint texture and does a better job of hiding the "patch" over the stain than applying with a brush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used Kilz Premium on entirety of new bathroom and all ceilings throughout our home since we live next to a large creek. LOVE IT! We built a brand new bathroom and used Kilz Premium as a base coat, and put two coats on the ceiling. We also painted all of the new ceilings throughout our home and absolutely love knowing that we will never have moisture mildew or mold problems like some of our neighbors who live on the creek. Great coverage, easy cleanup and beautiful looks that will last for years! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 1950's bathroom Thought I could refresh my bathroom cabinets. The trash can had rubbed against the vanity. This will be a breeze! Famous last words. The old white paint was peeling off! The original paint was was a baby bluish green. After scraping for what seemed like forever, on went the Kilz. It did take several coats but it worked perfectly! Bathroom looks great now! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Water vs. Oil This is a water based primer sealer and "stain blocker". The stain blocking I needed it for was from water damage. It took a couple of coats. I prefer oil based primer but didn't want the clean up hassles. Kilz is a good product and I use it often, excellent as a primer and/or sealer (water based or oil based) In this case the extra time for 2 coats was worth the ease of clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy application This primer was super easy to apply to our 1960's kitchen cabinets before painting. I used an airless paint sprayer for application and it did great! The primer leaves a tacky residue which will be good for when applying the paint to the cabinets. I'm hoping that it will do a good job of not allowing the paint to chip!
