Can I use Kilz as a finish coat on the exterior of the house?
By mike from Morehead City
No! It's a primer and would greatly affect the house color if you used it as a finish coat or sealer!
I'd use KILZ first as a primer and sealer.

Hope this helps.
I tried using Kilz as a finish coat on a wooden porch railing awhile back. It lasted about two years. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it isn't worth the effort.
This is a page about calculating the amount of paint needed to a paint a house. To determine the amount of paint needed to paint your house you will need to measure the exterior perimeter dimension and multiply that times the average wall height to find the surface area.
Home ownership means a lot of regular upkeep and maintenance. The exterior paint protects the siding from the elements. Neglect can cause moisture and insects to enter the home.
If you have windows with brown trim, you will need to take that into consideration when deciding how to paint the exterior of your home. This is a page about painting trim around brown windows.
