Q:Can kilz 2 be used on vinyl from wall board?
by|Mar 9, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Pierre, thank you for your question. The Kilz 2 Gray All-Purpose Primer can be applied to vinyl wallboard. If smooth or glossy, scuff sanding may be needed. If exterior, we recommend choosing a color similar to or lighter than the vinyl's original color, as darker colors can absorb more heat, which may result in a warping of the vinyl. Have a great day! - Randy

    A:  Hi Angela, thanks for your question. As it turns out, we don't recommend using Kilz 2 on a floor surface. Instead, it's best to find a floor paint for your project. Have a great day! -Christina

      A:  Hi Bill, thank you for your question. We do not recommend using Kilz 2 Gray Primer as a final coat. After priming, the surface will need to be topcoated with the paint of your choice. Have a great day! -Giovanna

        by|Jan 27, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Dear Valued Home Depot Customer, We have reached out to the manufacturer and their answer is, Yes, Kilz 2 Primer can be used on pressure-treated wood once dry (typically takes 6-8 weeks to dry). It should only be used vertically, not on floors or walking surfaces.

            This primer did the impossible!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought a house with the worst interior paint job ever! Most of the walls were dark purple, and all kinds of crazy graffiti "art". We thought it would take 10 coats to fix, but it only took one good coat and one light coat of Kilz primer to do the job! Very, very impressed with this product!!!

                  Kilz Covers anything!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used Kilz many times! My painter taught me to tint Kilz with my Sherwin Williams Botticelli red, as my first coat, to make rich colors look better. The last two projects; one was old paneling, i had Kilz primer tinted your Ranch House Tan, LOVE how it turned out, next project old floral wallpaper!😂 Kilz to the rescue again, covered up the busy dark wallpaper print perfectly!

                    Saved our ceilings
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When we move into our old farm house. The house sat empty for several years. They didn't shut the water off. Pipes froze and we had a mess to clean up. We painted Kilz on everything, Ceilings and walls. We even painted over really old wallpaper. The Kilz was a great base before we added color!

                      The best primer Kilz 2.
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used kilz 2 primer last year in my garage building project and wow. Used just one coat and kilz sealed up the plywood perfectly. I’ll use this on very paint job here out.

                        These walls were NASTY. Now they're white.
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought a hoarder house with heavy nicotine stains. I scrubbed the walls but everything still looked gross. 2 coats of Kilz and the paint went on perfectly.

                          Great stain blocker
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had some water stains on my ceilings after Ian came through. I covered the stains with one coat of KILZ 2. It blended perfectly with the rest of the ceilings. Problem solved!

                            Paneling & smoker coverage
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased a 600sq. ft. home built in 1899. The previous owners covered the plaster/lath walls with dark paneling. Also, in evidence of the ‘was’ white ceilings, they were heavy smokers. I purchased 3 gallon cans of your KILZ to cover not only the dark paneling, but also the orangish brown ceilings. It was great coverage, and then I painted the kitchen, dining room & livingroom white, over the KILZ. The bedroom were painted a light color.
