No! It's a primer and would greatly affect the house color if you used it as a finish coat or sealer!

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.

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.
