I love this paint. I have used Drylock in the past for my indoor masonry walls; however, this paint is much easier to apply with an airless paint sprayer than Drylock. In addition, I really like the finished, rubber-like elastomeric texture which makes it very easy to clean.

This is the perfect paint & primer in one can. This is great for walls that get a lot of abuse like a child’s room, or a rental unit. This waterbase pure acrylic latex paint will cover up water stains, crayon, oil and grease stains, smoke stains on drywall, concrete, stone, metal and wood. It has an inhibitor added to it to prevent mold and mildew (See Photo), and it has elastomeric technology making it flexible to resist cracking and peeling. It is low odor, low VOC (Volatile organic compounds). It claims a 25 year warranty. It can be applied with a brush, roller, pad, or sprayer. Can be used indoors or outdoors. Can be tinted to a color of your choice. It cleans up with soap & water. It cures in 1 week. 1 gallon covers approximately 300 to 500 sq. ft. depending on the surface texture. It was securely shipped in a thick corrugated cardboard box. The gallon is inside a strong plastic bag, and the top is securely sealed with 4 metal clips to prevent the top from coming off (See Photos). It arrived in perfect condition!

I have written this review before. This was surprisingly, amazingly packed well. I have yet to use this product, but after reading all the directions, which are well written, this elastrometric [sp] paint/sealant will do just the job. Looking forward to preparing the surfaces and applying this product. Would I recommend it, yes I would...............

The Ames Paint and Prime super paint with primer is just that super. It is thick and one coat covers very well. It's recommended for interior and exterior use, so it is really versatile and can provide a waterproof finish with the application of 2-3 coats. It's rated to cover over water stains, oil/grease, smoke odors, mildew, graffiti and ink/crayon. It can be used on wood, drywall, stucco, concrete and metal. It's scrubbable, elastomeric, waterproofs and inhibits mildew. I applied it to a test area of concrete foundations and as you can see it covers very well with one coat. I definitely recommend it for home or commercial applications.

Looking for a better paint for covering and sealing a small water stain. The Ames Paint and Prime has worked well so far . Like other stain paints we have used in the past the water ring seems to come back after a while. Maybe the the addition of the elastomeric, and Fungi , Mildew, alegae inhibitors might be the ticket long term. The paint after shaking viscosity was very thick. Application with a brush and roller was good went on smooth though the roller took a while to absorb in the roller for a good coverage. For our issue one coat was all that was needed.Dry time was took longer then must paints but it skined like other in 69 degree room. This is a all in one paint and primer and other additives and work pretty good with one coat. This is water base low odor, clean up was easy. All in all it work well for our small project.
