Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ive alwys trusted and depended on kilz entirely . Ive used kilz for many projects over the years. Depended on kilz being able to always completely cover repaired damaged areas. Allowing me to be more productive and finish more projects. I rely on it every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from House smelled to high heaven! We moved into a house that smelled to high heaven! You could smell and see the bleed through of all the things they smoked in the house. The landlord had painted but like I said the smell was still god awful! It saturated all of our clean clothes and we got comments on it when we left the house! Took one room to store all clothes, blankets, and bedding and repainted in kilz. The problem was solved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from saved us from a complete remodel We puchased a home with 3 feet of animal mess on the walls. I also had tons of animal mess that was in the floors. We used KILZ Tribute to cover the floors and walls after we washed them. This took away the smell and all the the stains and made the walls and floors like new. We saved thousands because of KILZ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color selection, the price and the fact that it's primer and paint in one since painting is not my strong suit. I have Swiss coffee in my kitchen, hallway and living room. It has held up quite nicely except the liwer three feet of the hall that was no match for my five dogs. Their doggie door is in the outside door in the hall. They come in wet and muddy and for some reason can't walk down it without rubbing against the always wiping it down. I've used it in my other rooms but I can't remember the names of the colors. I've also used it on outdoor garden projects and it's held up nicely there too.
