Kilz PVA primer ! Awesome stuff !
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this in my basement for new drywall ! This is the thickest primer I’ve ever used ! So nice to work with , unlike the thin soupy stuff. Went on nice and smooth. Too coated with a high quality paint, only one coat required. Love it

    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.

          Kilz PVA Drywall Primer & Sealer
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My husband and I use this Primer on our new house. We totally have rebuilt our house and have Great success with this paint. It gives us a great primer base for our walls, wood and trim. It is easy to use and covers well. When it dries it is even and adheres well giving us a great quality finish.

            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.

                The negative reviews do not represent the quality of this primer. It is very and opaque when you apply it. after it cures you are left with a smooth and consistent finish. for best results let it cute overnight.

                  Covers awesome
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We are in the middle of a very large interior home remodel. Removing old popcorn ceilings from our entire upstairs, removing walls which required patching on the ceiling with new drywall. The PVA primer has covered so great. Love that it goes on a gray and dries to white. Made the 2nd coat so much easier to apply. And we only needed 2 coats to cover everything. We tried another primer in a different room and were so disappointed in the original results. The PVA was a life (and shoulder) saver since I only needed two coats

                    I love this product for priming drywall. It goes on really light and it provides great coverage and its easy to sand. I've seen guys try to use all types of paint product to prime drywall. For a clean job, using this PVA primer should be a no brainer. It bonds to the raw drywall really well and it also drys really fast. This stuff makes it easy to see any imperfections in your drywall finish and will save you lots of time when you start applying wall or ceiling paint.

                        Excellent results on new drywall, one coat and great coverage. Applied liberally with a roller and cut in the edges and inside corners. Looks great. Coverage is about what it indicates 300 sq. ft. per gallon. We used about 1-1/2 gallons for 500 sq. ft. Have used other Kilz products in the past, our first experience with this stuff.

                          Absolute Nightmare
                          I'm a professional, registered, insured, accredited contractor. I've painted thousands of gallons of paint. This was the first time I've ever used this specific primer. It was coated on new installation Sheetrock, allowed to dry for 24 hours, then top coated with ceiling paint. 24 hours later the ceiling had numerous areas of very obvious peeling and spider web/hair line cracking. It should be noted the joint compound had a full week to dry prior to priming with this product, the Sheetrock was all vacuumed and wiped clean of any dust prior to applying this primer, and the primer was shaken at the store hours before use, and mixed/stirred again immediately before applying. The problem areas had to be scraped, sealed, coated with joint compound, sanded, primed again, and painted again. The warranty on the can covers the cost of the primer alone and explicitly states it will not cover any labor costs to repair. The primer was applied in total accordance with the manufacturer instructions. The issue was absolutely not with the paint because paint from the exact same bucket was used to paint a room that this primer was not used in, and there were zero issues in the rooms where this primer was not used. How embarrassing it was to have to tell my client that I have to give them an extended warranty on my work because of the known potential and high probability of this product failing. I will never use this product ever again. I have never reviewed a product until now, but I felt it was necessary to leave this.

                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Goes on good. Doesn't drip off the brush and roller like other brands of PVA drywall sealer. One coat over new drywall and one coat of paint and my project looks great. Never will I waste my time and money with inferior brands. Kilz is the number one primer and sealer for me.

                              Great coverage and provided a good surface for the color coat. I used a sprayer and back rolled it for texture and even coating. If spraying, use the largest nozzle possible as this material is fairly thick and they don't recommend thinning the product too much.
