What is the finish when dry?

When this paint dries, is the finish flat, satin, semi-gloss, gloss? I am looking for a white paint that will block minor stains and dry to a semi gloss or gloss. Thank you!

can it be used on wallpaper

Asked by: steve
It depends on what you want to do. Paint over the primer? Or hang new wallpaper? KILZ is good, but it's not designed to seal/cover old wallpaper. A couple years back I had a house FULL of 40 year old wallpaper. It was put on with so much glue, it was damaging the wall behind it, trying to take it off. My choice was, either put up all new walls, or do something creative. I opted for creative. I used Paper Illusions (Google it: it's ripped wallpaper, applied with warm water and it ends up looking like sponge painting.) First I primed with Shieldz Universal Wallcovering Primer, made by Zinsser. Let dry. Then rip, dip and apply. I loved the result! Really gave our walls that WOW factor.

Do we have to cover this paint with a final coat?

We want to spray paint our 140-foot, treated lumber (pine) picket fence with this white Kilz, but we need to know if it is necessary OR optional to apply a finish coat on the fence when it dries with Latex exterior enamel? That's a lot of work so if we do not have to, we would rather not. The fence is 1 yr old and was just power washed....thanks!
Asked by: LindaV
Yes, make sure you coat the Kilz. Remember that primer is porous and water will soak in. You need something that will protect the wood, even though it's treated.

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 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.]

I have painted professionally and as the resident painter/wallpaper hanger for my wife of 46 years. Kilz does an exceptional job as a primer and the cost is reasonable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Your Kilzen me Smalls The primer was applied to 60 yr old concrete block in my unheated cape code style home garage. The temperature of the space was 63deg during March 2017, in the Eastern Midwest. The block was only swept thoroughly as prep before the primer was applied. I did not re-stir the primer after it was shaken by the HomeDepot paint associate that day. The primer was applied with 1 1/4" nap roller cover, that I did not pre-wet with water, and applied to the block. It took 2 Coates of primer to close 99% of the pores in the block, even after working the first Coat on the semi-rough surface very liberally, to make sure the pores closed on the 1st application. I was some what disappointed in the need for a 2nd coat since the primer is recommended for this type of application, which is way I would give this product no better than 4 stars. Now when it comes to the top coat it worked out great, the pure white Behr premium full gloss paint covered in one coat application, and closed out any remaining pores in the block. So it worked great for this final application.

Was told by HD staff this would be the best product for my problem, but even after 2 coats, I had to switch to an oil based primer. That worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what a good primer should This was an excellent product for transforming builder grade wood trim to modern white trim. Great base coat. Covered well and offered a great surface for the new paint to stick to.
