Rated 5 out of 5 by from well worth the money I purchased this product when I was remodeling the bedroom in my house. It did a great job of coverage and provided a great surface for the final paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage When I first started applying this I thought I would need 4 coats. I am shocked after the first coat dried how good it covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was the most disgusting project ever! The garage had been drywalled 20+ years ago but had never been finished. The drywall paper on the ceiling and walls had turned an ugly brown, and two of the walls had water damage. First we painted the walls and ceiling with Kilz PVA Drywall Primer. Then we painted Kilz 2 over the water damaged area. I couldn't believe it covered the stains! I didn't take Before/After photos because I never want to be reminded how bad it looked.
