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!

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
First, I would highly recommend that you use the oil based version of this product as you are using it on treated lumber. That's what I used on my treated pine deck and rails 10 years ago and I only have a couple of places where there is rosin/sap bleed-thru. I finished it with Valspar High Gloss White from the "L" store as I prefer the Valspar product. I don't recommend using this without a finish coat Read More

Hello Linda! Yes, you will need to apply a topcoat. Please note that primers should not be used as a top coat. We recommend that you apply a topcoat after you use a primer. The purpose of a primer is to give a good base for the top coat. If a primer is left on the surface without a topcoat it can yellow and chalk over time. Also, if a primer is not re-coated after a few weeks, you might experience issues Read More

Answer: 
Hi YC,
Yes! The Kilz Premium Primer can be applied on top of water or oil-based paints and stains, as long as the stain is in good condition. If you have any areas that are peeling or flaking, you want to make sure to lightly sand the loose coating off first. Good luck with your project! - Sara

Answer: 
You can use it on oil base stained pine boards. If the stain is glossy, I'd recommend doing a light sand on them first, before using Kilz.
The Premium Kilz works great. We prefer it over the blue label.

Answer: 
You can it works great on bare sheet rock. But it can get expensive. I would recommend using Kilz PVA primer 1st. If you have stains showing after two coats of PVA then touch up those spots with this primer. PVA drives so fast you will not believe it. Easy to get two coats down in one day

Hello Kobe,
We appreciate your question. For water stains from a leaking roof, our Kilz Premium primer might not be enough. A product that's specifically designed for the toughest stains would be our Kilz Max primer. With any product, the surface texturing should come first, as our primers are not made to promote adhesion of texture. Follow the priming step with the application of a paint topcoat. And, Read More

Answer: 
I'd spray the texture first, since it'll dry porous. Then shoot a coat of Kilz over to seal the texture. Then paint over the Kilz. If you shoot the texture over the Kilz, then paint over the texture, it'll be too porous and you'll use too much paint.

PREMIUM 1-gal. White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 215.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peeling Usually kilz works great for me, but this time I think I got a bad batch. It had peeling on both drywall and wood with this product. This set my project back several days.

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 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.]

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 Tried this product on interior walls after the Kilz Klear failed to hide previous neon graffiti. ... Tried this product on interior walls after the Kilz Klear failed to hide previous neon graffiti. It worked on the lighter areas after one coat, but the brighter "art" reappeared as it dried overnight. Trying more coats, since I prefer not to use the oil-based Kilz on interior walls to be painted with latex paint. This paint truly is low-odor, which is a benefit indoors.

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!
