Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remodel of entire floor We have just finished remodeling and entire floor---flooring, painting, etc. Behr paint is my go to paint! I use the high gloss finish on my ceilings and walls because I love the light refraction and the ease of clean up. My bushes clean nicely and the walls clean great for years to come. The bath walls hold up to steamy showers/baths and never dull. Custom colors are always "spot on".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish in my turn of the century home Our home was built in 1900. Beautiful moldings, gorgeous textured ceilings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Enamel For Shine I took the whirlpool tub out of my master bathroom and wanted a high gloss finish for the wainscoting I built in the nook. I used High Style Beige for the color and the shine is exactly what I wanted. Very easy to use with a foam roller to get into the intricate areas of the panels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shows brush marks! This paint is awful— I used it to paint metal trim and it dried and clumped as I was painting so instead of a smooth “glass-like” finish, I have one that is rough and ridged and shows all of the brush marks. I used an expensive natural brush, so that wasn’t it. The quality of the paint just is not good. I don’t know how on earth to remove it from metal trim and painting over it will cause a build up. I really regret buying and using this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr"s the Best! I painted my house 15 years ago and the paint still looks new and rich color. Had to repair my garage because of flooding and repaint the new wood. I was able to match the color of redwood that was there and the match was good. So Behr paint is very durable to. Also due to flooding I replaced to interior walls of my house and repainted with Behr Interior semi-gloss, Turned out beautiful

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Door & Trim Paint Bought for use on door & trim. Performed light sanding on existing paint, (same Behr high gloss paint). One coat not quite enough. Seems to streak. Overall okay, but I expected more. I was a bit disappointed because using the same paint previously I thought it went on a lot better.
