I used it in my basement so it won’t have to worry about the elements. But I used this and this alone and couldn’t be happier.

Can you add color to this paint?

Happy to help, Eva! With proper application, Rust-Oleum Zinsser Mold Killing Primer will dry to a white finish. Please keep in mind, since this is a primer, it does require an opaque topcoat for full durability. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

Depends on where you live but here in Florida, unless your A/C system is in optimal running condition, all blower units and vents have mold. You would need to hire a company to have all of that checked and cleaned.

I am really impressed with Rustoleum Zinsser's Mold Killing Primer, I was thinking could this really be true, reviews seem to go both ways but I was willing to give it a try. Had been very hot and humid when it came in and then raining, so had to wait till had a nice day to apply and wall was dry, finally got my wish . Have wall between man door and overhead garage door that leaks when hit with heavy rain and drywall near wall gets wet and before I can get gutters installed to stop leaks, need to clear up mold or redo the drywall. But thanks to this great primer I can go ahead and finish paint, will wait a couple more weeks to make sure all is dry but seems to have cured the mold and I can get gutters installed now that is not 105 deg in the sun. Can only say thanks to Zinner

Last year after hurricane Irma the big concern was mold, as salt water storm surge had flooded the area. I would have liked to have used this product then, but now even though there is not any showing, I am going to apply the Zinsser mold killing primer to the affected areas and then apply a topcoat as a prevention. First I applied it using a 3" brush and even though it worked it is thin and I had to pay close attention to it dripping or running. The next day I applied it using a 6" roller on several different extensions. I used a 1/2" nap 6" cover and that worked best because it holds more paint than a 3/8 cover and it could be pressed into the corners and cover the areas without having to follow up with a brush and best of all fewer drips. I liked that it can be used as an exterior primer, no smell or fumes and easy water clean up.

We used 2 coats. We might have gotten away with 1 plus paint but wanted to ensure good coverage on dirty walls. The 2 coats We didn't have to cover visible mold so can't comment there. Smell wasn't bad and I'm pretty sensitive to smells.

This was a great product priced very well versus similar products. Application was simple. Went on like typical latex paint, cleanup was easy, but did leave an odor that lasted a few days(longer than expected) but what do you expect in a basement.

READ INSTRUCTIONS
FIRST, Zinsser, is not for COVERING up mold and mildew. SECOND, Zinsser is for PREVENTING mold and mildew to return. THIRD, if you read the instructions, YOU MUST clean the mold and mildew, HOW, Home Depot sells products for this purpose in the house cleaning isle. LASTLY, if you JUST painted over the mold and mildew without cleaning, you'll have the same problem.
