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.

Also, please note that our primers are not designed to withstand heavy foot traffic so we always recommend it's applied under your preferred flooring. You should have no problem priming the entire floor or spot priming where you see the stains as long as you allow the floor to dry completely.

Answer: 
Yes, but Glidden Ceiling paint that goes on Pink has been very reliable for me and it covers water stains very well. You will need to paint over this...it's what the label says....primer/stain blocker. If you haven't painted them yet, be prepared to work very slowly and carefully. The popcorn will fall off the ceiling and roll up on the roller without great care.

Hello Willie! Yes, you can use this product on a popcorn ceiling. Application is key to a successful finish. You need to roll lightly in one direction only - no backrolling. Allow the first coat to dry completely and once dry, roll lightly in opposite direction - again do not go back and forth. If you have additional questions, please contact us directly at ask@kilz.com.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 160 reviewers.
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
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ehh didn't seem like it would ever dry without being tacky.. Also received bad info from the company's Q&A guy. but as usual HD was there to take up the slack. Thanks HD May 3, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! I have always wanted to try this product, and I was not disappointed with its performance. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible at water stains - useless I'm hoping the sixth coat is the lucky one... I had water damage through a ceiling (lathe and plaster 1920s home). I scraped off the worst parts and re-plastered. I bought Kilz Premium to cover the water damage. It's taken six coats, applied thick, proper dry timed between coats, to cover the stains. SIX COATS?!? I think any paint would have finally covered in six coats. Don't waste your money. The mobile app only lets me add 1 photo, so I'm showing one stain after FIVE coats. October 26, 2015

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfection/Flawless/Odorless We redecorated a basement paneling nightmare of a guest room this past weekend and used 2 gallons of White Water-Based Interior/Exterior Primer, Sealer and Stain-Blocker. I am super sensitive to odors, and this had no odor unless you were standing with your nose up to the wall. This dried so fast, it was impressive. This was able to cover paneling with a final helpful application of Behr Ultra Premium Pure White. We won't use anything else! October 12, 2015
