  • Do not paint when rain or heavy condensation is expected.

BEHR ULTRA™ Exterior Semi-Gloss Enamel is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 284.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Color and Coverage Did lots of research to make sure this was the right paint for us and we are not disappointed. The coverage is great, hides blemishes well and accentuates siding texture. Thick coating seems like it will stand up well to the hot dry windy summers and bitterly cold winters here in Eastern Washington.
