Nice thick primer on new drywall
I bought two 5 gallon buckets for around $110. I ended up using about 6.5 gallons for my 650 sq ft garage and ceiling. Primer coated the new construction drywall well. I had to do a little touch up for some spots I missed but no big deal. Looks nice and brite white and I'm happy with the final result. I may even leave the ceiling the bright white and then paint the walls so there's a nice open contrast.

    peeled off of bare drywall
    Had drywall ceiling that needed painted. My wife painted an entire room ceiling. I came in noticing small flaking everywhere. Told her she may as well try a 2nd coat agger drying period and the 2nd coat just pulls the first coat off all over in random spots. Entire ceiling has to be scraped now and redone with a different paint...something thay actually works on drywall. Never had a paint do this and Ive remodeled a lot of houses. 1st time using this primer, wont use it again.

    Response from KILZProblemSolverApr 26, 2021
    Hi matt - Thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear that this primer flaked and peeled off your ceiling! To fix the finish, I recommend removing the loose primer, wiping the surface down with a damp cloth and allowing it to completely dry, then re-priming. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can assist you with this further. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Kilz

        The primer did not cover the drywall material. I kept recoating the wall thinking it would improve, but it did not. I could still see the drywall material seeping through even when I applied some paint over it. I had to go back to home depot to buy anything primer which worked on the first attempt. This primer is a waste of money.

          Absolutely the Best Primer Ever
          Bought 5 gallons thinking i would need this much on a full kitchen gut and remodel that I was expecting to need 2 coats. Needed just 1 coat done. This paint covers so well that needed only a single coat and if really don't need to put a finishing coat over it. GREAT coverage - thick not runny product easy to use and I can't say more about how good this paint was covering new drywall. Paint has a light gray white hue that is only noticeable as gray by ceiling white covering. The color on the wall really doesn't need our finishing gray cover from just 1 coat. Better than most finishing flat wall paint. Certainly did not expect that from a 10$/gal primer. Just the best.
