  • Apply product on dry substrates when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) and will remain between 35°-90°F (2°-32°C) for at least 4 hours after applying.
  • Allow paint film to dry for at least 60 minutes prior to rain showers when temperatures are between 60°-70° F (15°-21° C) and 60-70% relative humidity. Lower temperatures, higher humidity or deep colors may increase dry time and/or rain resistance time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I have always loved Behr paint for my interior walls, but this was the first time using the Marquee line. I used it on my front doors and was very impressed how excellent the coverage was, on my old wooden door. I would definitely buy this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Coverage! This is the most expensive Behr at Home Depot. I bought 10 gallons for my house exterior. 3 weeks later...pressure washed, applied 2 coats of primer and 3 coats of Behr Marquee and there are stains STILL visible! Now I am supposed to buy 'oil based' primer, re-prime then re-paint. Which means I have to buy more of this $53.00 per gallon paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding paint We took some time to research our options, and ultimately decided on investing in the Behr Marquee paint. We used a dark color and our home has a lot of sun exposure, so we needed a paint that is fade & UV resistant, among other things.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again Bought this yesterday to paint my front door black. Previous color was dark brown. Took 3 coats and it looks okay. I bought the brush and roller recommended for this type of project. I would not recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! I bought this paint to repaint my wooden colonial style porch posts and corbels. I had recently added vinyl porch railing, but could not replace the wooden posts with vinyl. They had been painted several years ago, but we live in Northern Michigan and the winters are very hard on painted wood. So far, I have used one coat of this paint on the posts and they look great! It was easy to use and dried quickly. I intend to put another coat on them before fall simply because I have paint left but not because I am unhappy with the way one coat looks. I am very pleased and would definitely recommend this paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick as pancake batter! I bought this because it is a primer/paint in one. Saves time and labor. Yes a little more expensive but saved me 2-3 hours of painting time. Bonds to almost anything(cement siding in my case). Thick! Great coverage. I know it’s great paint when it takes several days to wash it off of my hands. If you have ever painted you understand what I mean

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marquee Wish I had bought this product to paint my colonial house 25 years ago. Goes on smooth easy and 1 coat coverage. Would have saved me a lot of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro results from a Amateur DIYer We remodeled our home a couple of years back, complete with new painting for the entire house inside and out. Our contractor recommended that we use Behr Marquee paints for coverage and quality so we did. The urge for a decor change arose and I decided to save labor costs by making this a DIY project. Hoping the quality of paint would make the job easier, I purchased five gallons of Behr Marquee exterior. The paint allowed me to complete the job with only one coat that looked flawless and saved us the huge labor cost to repaint our exterior. Behr Marquee will forever be my go-to paint unless, Behr creates an even better product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on very evenly and smooth I love this paint, do property maintenance and always prefer to use it. I like to do the job right the first time. I have found if you use good products like Behr paint and apply them on a properly prepared surface the job will last a long time. I love this paint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great looking finish. Purchased last fall for exterior trim work. Works smoothly over similar color basecoat. Does not hide very well. Expect two coats when painting over either a lighter or darker color..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great durability I bought a couple of gallons of this paint to cover some new louvers that I built to block the sun from my patio. The louvers were made from cedar. The paint covered the cedar beautifully and the paint has lasted a year now in the hot Texas sun and through a number of storms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best House Paint We painted our home, both trim and lap board, with this easy to use Marquee Exterior Semi-Gloss. We did it by hand using rollers and brushes. The previous owners had used obviously cheap paint just to sell the home. You could see where they sprayed it on! If we were going to paint we wanted to do it right and our go to paint is BEHR. This paint gives great coverage, goes on smoothly and is easy to use. Many of our new neighbors stopped while driving by and told us how wonderful the house looked. It has now been 3 years since we finished painting our home here in Southern California with BEHR Exterior MARQUEE Semi-Gloss. The paint has not faded, the gloss keeps the dust and dirt from sticking and it looks just as wonderful as it did when we just finished the job! BEHR is truly a paint you can trust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Texture & Consistency Easy to apply. No streaks when applying. I love this paint so much. I will definitely buy again.
