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

It is especially important to topcoat when priming a floor. Primers are not recommended for areas that receive any foot traffic. It's best to use under carpeting, tile or linoleum.

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.

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.

Hello and thank you for your question. Yes, KILZ® Premium can be used on wallpaper as long as the surface is clean, dry and free from dust, debris or anything that will make the primer difficult to adhere to the wallpaper. Hope this helps and good luck on your project!
