    Old fieldstone foundation!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Two inch throw away brush and kilz3! Work it into the crumbly stuff, too. Wouldn’t try this with other paint. Two coats makes it look like it was poured on. Fast dry and NO SMELL! Amazing! I’m a retired professional painter. This technique eliminates all that messy prep work the “experts” say you have to do!

      Great primer beautiful finish
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this primer This isn’t the first time to buy kilz, but it was the 1st time buy kilz 3 and I’m so pleased with how easy it is to use and the way it covers and primes for painting. Will be buying more

        Sub par
        I bought this last week to hide ceiling paint and stains due to smokers. I used killz for the first coat and then the premium after and it failed to cover the stains
        Response from Joanne, Kilz Customer CareNov 30, 2021
        Hi Anton, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the primer didn’t cover the stains on your ceiling. Our Kilz 3 Premium Primer isn’t recommended for blocking smoke stains. So I suggest re-priming with our Kilz Restoration Primer instead as it’s great for covering heavy smoke stains. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. I’ll reach out to you directly to assist you with this further. Thank you again for taking the time to share your experience with us, and I hope to hear from you soon! -Joni

          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this to paint hive boxes that are placed outside year round. I have found the better the paint job the longer the box stays viable. I have found the primer to be the biggest factor and this one seals up well and takes paint great

            Very good coverage, sprays good too for good base!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using Kilz premium 3 exclusively since I began my furniture restoration. It’s works excellent if sprayed or brushed!

                  Incredible coverage!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Having used plenty of Kilz products in the past there was only one choice when it came to freshening up my dated basement space. Kilz 3 gave me the base to cover Virginia wood and worn paint alike in one coat! Simply the best money you can spend if you want to do it right the first time.
