Hi Rob, thank you for writing in with your question. Kilz Original will require scuff sanding over the glossy finish to promote adhesion. If you prefer not to sand, I recommend Kilz Adhesion Primer instead. It is ideal for slick and tough-to-paint surfaces. Have a great day! -Giovanna

Asked by LW November 28, 2020

Answers

Yes, it's a thick oil base paint, it itself has a very strong new paint smell. I just used it to cover a ceiling in a house that had heavy smokers living in it at one time, it covered the yellowed ceiling and eliminated the oder also. It should do the same for pet smells.

I don't know that the stain would spread evenly, I would do on a sample piece of wood first.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Several years ago we decided to pull off wallpaper and paint our dining room walls. It should have been a simple project except no product or amount of elbow grease would remove the paper. Kilz to the rescue! A coat of primer prepared the wall for our new treatment, easy peasy! We have used Kilz products for years, covering dark walls in our transfers rooms and generally making every painting project a breeze.

Wow!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a bit impulsive. My relationship with Kilz is one of need. Like when I needed the bright, apple green kitchen...and almost immediately had my friend, KILZ, cover the whole thing in one coat. Apple Green was followed by lavender. Yep, Kilz to the rescue. Or a purple door that once Kilz visited, is now Orange...I can see future visits from Kilz. I have great comfort in knowing I can be whimsical and impulsive, as long as KILZ is in my life.

Amazing coverage
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this product to prime paneling that was installed in 1975. The walls came out amazing because of your product. It was east to apply and helped with the coverage. The walls look amazing and there is nothing bleeding through.

1 coat did it.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was remodeling a garage into a laundry room and walk-in closet. Client wanted to leave the old Sheetrock (brown paper)on the ceiling. I forgot to buy KILZ. So I thought it would be ok. After 2 coats of paint. The old Sheetrock bled through still. So I bought the KILZ. It covered it with just 1 coat. Thank you for such a great product.

Flawless 30 Years
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been applying high quality 2 part top coats over recommended basecoats for 30 years. But the FIRST coat over all custom wood projects is always KILZ. It's the only way to start.
