Q:Cinder block interior wall was previously painted, but I don't know what paint/sealer primer may have been used. No chipping, flaking or powdering. I used mold killer & stain remover but some stains remain. Should I use KILZ 2? Then what topcoat? Thanks

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Chris, thanks for the question. Since it sounds like the existing coating is in good condition, the Kilz 2 Primer isn't necessary. You could use a paint & primer in one product, such as our Kilz Complete Coat Paint & Primer in One. It has a built-in stain-blocking primer. The first coat will act as the primer coat and the coats after that will act as the paint coat. Good luck with your project! -Ronald

    A:  Hi Chris, thanks for the question. You can paint over our Kilz 2 All-Purpose Primer with either an oil-based or water-based paint. I'd recommend our Kilz Complete Coat Interior/Exterior Paint & Primer in One. It's a very durable paint that's suited for both interior and exterior surfaces. Have a great day! -Ronald

      A:  yes

        A:  Hi Steve, thanks for the question. Yes, our Kilz 2 Primer would be a good choice for priming your exterior cinder block wall. Before priming, you would want to clean the surface and remove any existing paint that is peeling before priming and painting the surface. Good luck with painting your exterior wall.

            Doesn't cover good
            I don't know why I allow myself to be sold this product. Every time I do, I find myself complaining. It doesn't cover that well, doesn't lay down, runs, arguably needs two coats itself, and I've had dark colors bleed thru (whole reasons I end up using it). I hope I remember to use another product next time I have to cover up dark colors. I'm not a professional painter, but I have applied hundreds of gallons of paint in my life. I expect better.

            Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry about the poor coverage. This is not the experience we want for our customers, and I can understand your disappointment. For best results, we recommend using a 3/8-1/2" nap on smooth surfaces or 1/2-3/4" nap on semi-rough surfaces. This will ensure the product gets on the surface and crevices. I recommend applying another coat for better coverage. I'll reach out to you in a private email to find the best way to help. Have a great day! -Giovanna

              All-purpose, not every-purpose.
              This is a great primer for most jobs. I can put it on new drywall, cover existing paint, and it works on most surfaces. So I use it for those situations where I just need a basic primer. But if you have heavy stains and wood tannin to cover, need superior adhesion, or other high-performance needs, don't try to make this do what it's not designed to do. Don't confuse "all-purpose" with "every-purpose".

                Worked as primer but not as stain blocker
                I have used Kilz many time and use this product several times as a primer for some drywall that had to be patched - worked fine. But I had actually purchased it for the stain blocking properties. I had many positive experiences in the past, but this time it was a fail. The stain was an old water stain in a plaster wall. When I put on the first coat I was amazed at how quickly the stain bleed through the primer, the second coat was a TINY bit better. see images

                  Makes painting easier!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had walls coated with dark red paint and I was afraid it would take multiple coats to completely cover it. One coat with KILZ and it was covered and ready for new paint. I couldn’t be happier with the results!

                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have a mechanics garage that had dirty greasy walls with wood stove smoke. I figured it'd take 2 or 3 coats but it only took one. Great product

                      Complete Coverage
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed to paint over a darker color on my older popcorn ceiling - and this primer was amazing! Easy to use, dried quickly, and no odor! You can see the one coat beneath the ceiling paint in the photo in contrast to the original color. Very pleased with this product!

                        The worst primer I've ever used
                        I bought this for a job where we needed to cover colored latex paint that was about 15 years old. We put it on and it separated. So we wiped the walls down with TSP and reapplied. Again, it separated. See the photos below. I don't know why anybody would ever use this, unless they want to create more work for them selves

                          do not believe the paid reviews
                          this stuff used to be good. used to cover old colors well. now it does not. i think whole milk is thicker than this stuff. i get the impression they have watered it down so much so you have to buy a lot more, image shown is TWO coats. we had test colors on our wall and decided to primer it all to avoid issues. walls were sanded, wiped down prior to primer. this stuff would would stick well, would smear on the wall with the roller. i gave up and returned it

                          Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that the Kilz 2 Primer seemed watered down and that it didn't cover as expected. Our Kilz 2 Primer is designed to seal in previous colors and stains, When the primer is applied, it doesn't completely cover the existing color and stain, instead, it creates a barrier to help block the stain. When you apply your paint, that is when you will see the coverage over the existing color. This is because paints have more solids than primers.
