Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sphybrid You can't go wrong with Zinser
The Zinser primer is easy to use. It's almost thick as paint but rolls on easy and dries very fast. It dries in less than an hour at about 75 degrees F. I did a 9 x 3 x 9 closet in less than an hour and that was 2 coats on new green board drywall and mud. I let that set a day to thoroughly dry out and painted the next day with no problems. The picture shows the painted closet and a bare primed wall to the right of that. At 2 coats, there was still a hint of green board showing through the primer. Zinser doesn't disappoint and the price is right at Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shoemama10 Awesome coverage over trailer walls
A relative had purchased a modular home in a 55 and older mobile home park. This modular home is a 1981 & the walls were very dated with flowered wallboard, The Zinsser product covered the pattern very well in one coat. The painters did the ceiling which had yellow cigarette smoke. They painted all the walls then we went over with the topcoat you cannot see the flowered wallpaper.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doorway Priming is a necessary step for a steel door.
It glides on smooth ! It dries well and made the appearance of the door to look professional... as I am an amateur!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Namaste Can be used as an exterior Primer
I used this primer to prime the plywood roof on a small tree house. Application was easy, and it dried fairly quickly. However, part of an area coated about an hour before the rain started was partially washed off. I had to put on another coat after all dried out. The exterior paint I used after the primer coat is holding on without any problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sixpair Very good primer
. Covers very well and dries quickly. I used it recently on new gypsum wall board as well as a new door and trim. It's nice to be able to use one primer for everything instead of having to clean up rollers and brushes every time you change primers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JackHammer Great all purpose primer
Good coverage, hiding and adhesion, almost no odor, fast drying and easy clean-up. I think the other primer they make (1-2-3) gives slightly better hiding, but it also costs more, so I'd rather just do an extra coat of this when necessary ...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shiba Very smart purchase
I'm very satisfied overall with this product but what really makes me happy is the lady who helped me in the paint department I was desperate and didn't know a thing about paint but she knows her job and does it very very WELL!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jb Great product.
We had a lot of wallpaper removed, and although I washed walls was worried about glue residue. This stuff was flawless. Also used to prime new drywall, and newly textured ceilings. I have used all the others in the past, this was by far my favorite.
