PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Exterior Flat is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST paint I have ever used! Wow! I hate painting but this paint is different. I repainted my exterior deck/steps/railing with this paint and I did extra preparation ( wire brush and compressed air). Every time I look out the window at my paint job I'm singing it's praises. The paint seemed expensive to me at the time (I'm kind of cheap) but I'm so glad I bit the bullet and gave it a try. You will love this product and I'm talking ONE COAT too! It is fantastic. That's all.
