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: 
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

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 nor does the maker. If you have gone to all of the trouble to pressure wash and getting ready to prime then the finish coat ain't that big a deal...otherwise you'll just end up wasting time, effort and $$$. Read Less

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

My walls are old, plaster walls, and it used to have wallpaper. I removed the wallpaper glue, as it was a pain. I once painted it before with a paint+primer, but now the paint has been chipping away.

Answer: 
Yes, but you need to fix the physical damage first. Use some sheetrock mud or spackling compound depending on how big the areas are. If necessary, sand the spots where the paint failed and be sure to wash and rinse the wall thoroughly and you will get superior results.

Answer: 
I'm not a big fan of this paint+primer all in one stuff. Primer is normally for priming a surface, bonding to it, covering stains, etc and cheaper! Now they're mixing them together and charger full price, I feel like I'm getting ripped off or something.
What a bummer that yours is chipping off. Is there a moisture problem perhaps and its causing the paint to come loose of the plaster?

Old plaster may benefit from the penetrating properties of an oil-base paint like KILZ® Original to help hold it together. If you had new plaster, we'd point to KILZ® Premium. A water-base primer like KILZ® Premium allows new plaster to continue to cure better than an oil like KILZ® Original.

Answer: 
Hello and thanks for your question. Yes, it will block stains, but for smoke damage to cover both stains and odor we would recommend KILZ Complete primer. It is an oil-based primer, sealer and stainblocker ideal for blocking stains, priming, and sealing almost all interior and exterior surfaces. It is especially effective at blocking graffiti, tannin, water, smoke and other bleeding stains.

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!

This is not paint. It's a primer, sealer and stain blocker in one. The finish is flat, but it's not as hard as paint. Make sure you put a good coat of paint (or two) on top.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It made paint a way easier Big difference when comparing how easy it is to apply paint with and without primer. I painted many walls at home with and without primer and the roll goes smooth when using primer, I used less paint too to cover the same area. I don't think it is a con, but it is thin, so there may be some areas where you may want to add more of it, it all depends on the paint you are going to put on top. May 25, 2016
