This primer has a flat finish, which is typically recommended when hanging wallpaper.

            This is a must for hanging wallpaper. There is no other true universal wallcovering primer. If you do not prime under wallpaper with this product, you will have issues of all sorts.

            The product is great. However, I did not realize I was getting six quart containers. I didn't even use half of one. I'm used to buying one can. You need to sell by one can.

            I have used this product for years and absolutely love it. Two coats over wallpaper and your good to go with what ever texture, paint or wallpaper you want to use. No tedious stripping (except loose stuff). works great sames time and time is money. It is becoming hard to find and the online store lies when is says it is available in the local stores. I had all of my local stores going crazy trying to find it and I was forced to purchase an entire case.
