Usage Summary
Preparation

Proper surface preparation is required

  • Remove stains caused by mold and mildew with a mold and mildew stain removing product.

Previously painted, stained or clear sealed wood

  • Sand all glossy surfaces.
  • If surface is in good condition, apply directly over clean, dry surface.
  • If the latex or oil-based finish has started to crack, peel or flake, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper on wood to remove the coating. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Follow with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner. Scrub, rinse, and allow to dry completely.

New, weathered, pressure treated or uncoated wood

  • Place cloth duct tape in random areas on the bare wood. Press the tape firmly then quickly remove it.
  • If wood fibers or debris are pulled onto the tape, the wood surface is not sound and additional preparation is required as follows: Clean surface with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper. Rinse.
  • Follow with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner at full strength to remove mill glaze and/or loose wood fibers, dirt and other debris. Rinse and allow to dry.
Application
  • Use when air and surface temperature are 50-90˚F (10-32˚C).
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight or if rain is expected within 24 hours.
  • Wood surfaces must be completely dry.
  • When working with more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity.
  • Redwood, Cedar, Cypress and other “bleeding” woods contain water soluble extractives which may cause discoloration of white and pastel colors; therefore prime the above type woods with one coat of a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer to reduce these stains.
  • Apply with a nylon/polyester brush on smooth surfaces. On rough-sawn or textured wood apply with a 3/4" long nap roller or high quality airless sprayer. For airless spraying use a .015" tip. Keep a wet edge to reduce lapping and help control color uniformity.
  • Always back-brush or back-roll during all application methods.
  • Two coats may be necessary for complete hiding. Apply the second coat only after the first coat has thoroughly dried.
Dry Time
  • Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and higher humidity.

Disposal
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product contact your household refuse collection service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recently bought white and red barn paint I recently bought a house with numerous outdoor paint projects including arbors, porticos, patio decks, porch railings and new fencing. The product covered older paint colors on wood posts, decking and some plastic toppers extremely well and previously unpainted wood, all with high humidity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thickest paint ever! I used the Barn & Fence Paint on my outside deck. This paint was incredibly thick and covered my old, poor deck really well. I used the Behr cleaner first and then painted a few days later. Wow! What a difference! I was truly impressed with the quality. Now, I will use it to paint my handicap ramp and finish the professional look of my outdoor surfaces!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I first purchased this paint on July 4th. The coverage and color was just what I wanted. I later went back and purchased more in late August. All together I purchased 40 gallons of Behr barn and fence paint. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and apply We needed a paint that would be perfect for for our fence and Behrs Barn and Fence paint was exactly what we were looking for. We went with the white and it gave the fence a great rustic white washed appearance and about a week after we finished the job, we had a neighbor ask us if we would mind if they copied what we did with the fence because it looked so good. Clean up was also a breeze.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid paint at a solid price The wood I’ve painted has retained its color, however it attracts/holds dust more than desired

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and color I used the barn and fence paint on my wooden fence around our pool that was really starting to deteriorate from the weather. To say it drastically improved the look of our fence is an understatement. I applied it thick and it dried perfectly. I was worried that it would be too “red” but as it dried over the first few days it got darker and I am completely satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I used this to repaint my shed I converted to a chicken coop. It went on very well and covered in 2 coats. I wish this came in black. I had to use a competitor brand on the trim work and on my fences. Lowe’s stocks black in stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fence Paint This fence paint went on very easy. It is a bit thinner than the Behr interior paint I always use. Dries fast. I used a small roller for the large areas of the picket fence and brushed the hard to get areas. No problems. Fence looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unlike my tan, this covers all the flaws Bought 25 gal of the exterior Barn Red paint and it covered the hay barn, corn crib w/lean-too, workshop and sheep barn beautifully. We get compliments all the time. It's only been about 1 1/2 years but it still looks like we (my husband & myself) painted yesterday.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good paint for a good price I painted my fence with this and it went on pretty good. Not sure about durability yet since its only been a couple of months. Pro- good price, good coverage. Con- I wish it was a truer white

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 year solid color latex stain The 10 year solid color stain wasn't on the list of choices but this is close enough. I painted my house last, with the same product, just about 10 years ago. It lasts. Thats why I used the same product again. Why spend $4000 paying someone to shoot paint onto your house and everything around it when you can brush the whole house for $300 and it will last for 10 years

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers great Great for coverage on old wood. Did two coats but probably would have been fine with one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't use anything else. Behr paint is the best on the market, and the price is very affordable.
