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

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

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.
