              Perfect primer and garage/basement paint
              Too Many complaints about poor coverage. It’s a primer!! Doesn’t need to give total opaque coverage. I used it to prime my unpainted drywalled garage. Then applied a second coat as paint since it’s just a gargage it worked perfectly with total coverage. Saved a lot of coin on paint using this for both coats. Garage is so bright now I almost need shades on to work in there !!

                Worst PRIMER EVER
                TERRIBLE! The worst primer ever. Doesn’t cover jack squat. I’m putting on GOBS of primer on the roller and it barely covers 2 feet. Look at the photos. Look at how much product I have on my roller and it barely covered anything On that wall. Such a waste. Returning and will NEVER recommend this EVER! Stay far away from this GARBAGE

                  I am impressed with the coverage and hide of this primer. I used on both new drywall and previously painted walls. It adhered well and hid most of the marks (crayon, pencil and pen) with just one pass. A very economical paint with great results.

                  Best for the money
                  I have hung drywall and painted in many rooms of my house. This stuff is the best I have found. I am a big fan of Glidden. This primer went on and covered in 1 coat. I bought (2) 5 gallon buckets figuring I would have to double coat before paint. I returned (1) 5 gallon as I completed this room and still have 1/3rd of the bucket left. This room is 17ft X 25ft. I primed walls and ceiling. Some of the blotchy spots in the photo are the sections that were not dry yet. Entire product dried relatively fast, about 20 minutes. No smell at all. Product is the best. You would be wasting your money if you purchase anything else. Keep in mind this is for newly installed drywall. It's for sealing the drywall for paint. I did use this over 1 section of the drywall that was painted and it covered fine but I could see covering an already painted wall with primer made for the purpose of covering paint.

                    I used this primer on new drywall for an added room in my basement. It worked best for me by applying 2 coats. The first coat went on and did not spread far (due to it being new walls) and it was see-through as it dried. I Let it dry for 40 min to an hour then went over it again. The second coat went on thicker, spread further and completely covered the walls. I did not have it tinted. It's white out of the can but it appeared to go on with a slightly bluish tint so it wasn't impossible to see where it had been applied and where it had not, though this is not one of those primers that goes on with a color that is obvious to see then dries white (I saw one advertised to go on pink and dry white). I used 5 gallons to do 2 coats on a 12'x11' room with 8 foot walls and a medium/large closet. I'm very happy with this product and would use it again.

                      Goes on smooth and easy. Clean-up is great when done right away. Good shine with semi-gloss.
