Outside Priming
 
Can I use Kiltz 2 to prime treated lumber on the outside of my house?

No, KILZ is formulated for interior use only. Most major paint companies make an exterior "KILZ-like" primer for exteriors. I use the product from Sherwin-Williams.

You can... Whether or not it sticks is another question. Pressure treated lumber is extremely wet. Depending on how long it's been installed, I usually wait at least 2 months before applying anything. :)

I was thinking the same thing! Can this treated lumber be stained instead?

"KILZ 2 LATEX is a stainblocking interior / exterior water-based primer. Use it to prime and seal drywall, woodwork, plaster, paneling and much more."

This isn't to say I like the stuff. Never have cared for KILZ
