Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CindyM I love this primer
We purchased a home that was built in 1901. When we started updating/refurbishing/remodeling I chose this for the primer because the previous owners smoked and the whole house was yellowed with that nasty film, even after scrubbing. This primer has wonderful coverage and blocks out the stains perfectly. I mix it well before applying and now it's the only that I will use.

I turn old worn out furniture into a shabby chic new beauty with your Kilz Premium primer. I have no bleed through making it easy to paint. Truly a painters life saver, thank you for making a great product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Diyshop Stays tacky after 1 week, followed directions! :-((
Not very happy with the way this primer 'dried'.
Applied one coat to a bunch of pieces of 1/2 plywood.
Plywood was new, unfinished, sanded prior to application.
One coat with a brush on all parts, put parts outside in sunlight on a nice sunny, warm day... Parts were tacky or sticky feeling at the end of the day. The next day, the situation had not changed as far as I could tell... waited till the following weekend and the parts still feel tacky! Sanded the parts with a random orbit sander, using LIGHT pressure. Sanded better than expected, unfortunately, the sanding created thousands of tiny balls of primer which tended to stick to the primer coat (but could be brushed off with some aggressive hand wiping action)
Sometimes the balls stuck to the plywood in a 'clump' and became a rubbery flattened lump stuck to the plywood - similar to chewing gum on a sidewalk! If I had known how Kilz Premium was going to 'dry', I definitely wouldn't have used it...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYMOM50 Fantastic paint job
I repainted house trim and garage door, after sanding, then priming with Kilz Premium. Some of the particle board panels on the garage door were water damaged and all the old paint had to be scraped off & was then lightly sanded. I put a thin coat of Kilz on, then lightly sanded. Then another mod coat of Kilz was applied. After an hour we painted the entire garage door with 2 coats of paint and it turned out beautiful. My 14 year old son has now learned the great benefits of Kilz and some basics of painting, as this is his first big paint job. This Kilz works great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bellestory Best cover up for magic marker
When I moved into my rental house the previous renters had allowed their 4 kids to draw on every wall with magic markers. Since my landlord said I could paint whatever colors I wanted or he would paint the normal beige, I opted for me doing it. I washed the walls to get some of the marker off, then painted a coat of Kilz premium over everything. It covered great with no bleeding and I was able to even use pale yellow on my walls without the marks showing through. Of course I have never used anything but Kilz , Why try others when the one you have does the best job regardless.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffC Kilz is the best!
I own a business that has suspended ceilings and there are literally hundreds of ceiling tiles throughout the building. The roof occasionally leaks and stains the tiles. I have tried many different primers and sealers to block the stains so that the tiles can be repainted. Oil based Kilz is by far the best product that I have ever used for this job. Kilz eliminates the darkest of water stains in usually one application. I highly reccomend this product
