Answer: 
Yes, Frank. Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer and Sealer can be used on new wood. However, it is important to test the wood for moisture. It is recommended to only apply this primer if the wood contains 12% or less of moisture.

Zinsser peel stop primer seems perfect for the job, but I wasn't sure whether it would adhere to the same variety of surfaces as the 123 primer. Any recommendations?

Answer: 
We recommend using both primers. Since the previous coating is having peeling issues, we recommend using Zinsser Peel Stop first to bind the previous coating to the surface. To create a more uniform topcoat appearance, prime with Zinsser Bulls-Eye 1-2-3 Primer before applying a top coat. Read More

Answer: 
Yes, it would be perfect for that. if you have to paint the treads. Often the risers are painted and the treads are varnished. Varnish probably resists scuffing better than any paint. Painted treads will need to be done over frequently.

Hi Kristen! Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Water-Based Primer is suitable for both interior and exterior surface. However, it is not recommended for areas that are subjected to foot traffic and the product will crack and peel.

Bulls Eye 1-2-3 1 gal. White Water Based Interior/Exterior Primer and Sealer is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent primer for priming over oil based paint I use this primer for priming over old oil based paint. It sticks good so your new water based paint won't peel off. If I have any water stains I use BIN primer on the stain first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Sealing Primer--for the proper purposes I find Bulls Eye an excellent primer sealer for any type of previously painted surface, such as previously finished drywall and plaster. It adheres well, dries quickly and now with a fairly low VOC level it's easier for me to use (I need a respirator for certain alkyds). It is thin, but I've never had a problem with it sealing the surface or any bleed through--and that's what I use it for. That said, what is under it may well show even if it doesn't bleed through. I deal with this by having the product tinted to the finish color before applying it, and then if necessary applying a third topcoat, not a second Bulls-Eye coat.

Three coats over old water stains on my ceiling and the stains are still very visible. This product MAY work just fine as a standard primer, but I would not recommend it as a stain blocker. Time to try another product...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen cabinets We used Bulls Eye to prime our kitchen cabinets before painting them white. We never sanded the finish off the cabinets and the primer adhered perfectly. We have a two and a four year old who are very hard on the cabinets and we haven't had any problems. I recommend this primer to anyone looking for a strong primer that will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Cover even for Grout, Aluminum and Tile This is simply amazing stuff! As I never could stand the brown colors in the 1" ceramic tiles on my bathroom floors, hate grout in general, couldn't afford to have this removed & replaced with vinyl, my project concept was to paint over it all with white epoxy paint and add tiny chips of blue and black to the finished product. The Home Depot people are FABULOUS and recommended this amazing latex no-fume primer which was very user friendly with both brush and roller. As there was much discoloration on some white vinyl and on the aluminum uprights of my shower doors, I used it on these, too! TERRIFIC results. Next day did the Latex one-step epoxy paint treatment and added the tiny chips...looks incredible and brand new. Like we have a white granite floor! I have several other fix-it uses planned for this. It's my new cover-it-up for anything "best friend" :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought it because it was on an 'introductory sale" and 50% off rate otherwise I would have bought a known brand.. Had professional painters use BullsEye123 last year to paint a 100 year-old pressed metal ceiling that was badly flaking and for a kitchen ceiling and wall and other ceilings. AMAZING cover over scraps, spakle, stains and blemishes. So amazing that we just did the one coat of BullsEye and didn't bother about the top coat of ceiling paint and I could get the job done in less days work. Only trouble is that in Australia it costs $A60 ($US50) for 4 litres (just over 1 gall) - I guess that's the price we have to pay for living in the world's best country.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Priming Ceramic Tile I used this primer to prep my backsplash for painting; I probably could have used 1 coat but I used 2 coats just to be sure. I let each coat dry and waited 24 hours before applying the high gloss alkyd paint. Very happy with the final result.
