Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful!! I bought this primer to paint brand new drywall and new oak door and the paint that I used another name brand paint and it made the walls look textured and the paint for the door peeled off! The paint didn't like the primer. I was told from the store that it will be okay but NOW..I have to strip the door back to new and use a different primer! Never again with any of glidden i paint! I would give it no stars but it won't let me post this without giving it a star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great interior/exterior product As a contractor I need something that performs. I have been using Gripper for years with outstanding results. Raw wood, drywall/texture, over dark colors it doesn't matter. One coat of Gripper then put down your color and you are good to go. Great product!
