Usage Summary
Preparation & Prime

All Surfaces:

  • Properly prepare and clean all surfaces.
  • Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover.
  • Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections.
  • Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR MARQUEE paint as a primer for uncoated, porous or repaired interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar).

Stained Surfaces:

  • Lock in stains with BEHR MARQUEE as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR MARQUEE to a small section.
  • If the stain bleeds through, spot prime with another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating.
  • If bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before topcoating.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015 - .019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Fully saturate roller for best coverage.
  • Untinted ULTRA PURE WHITE® and colors outside of the MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color Collection may require more than one coat to achieve complete hide and a uniform finish.
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.
  • Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Longtime Behr user: Marquee is the best! I've been using Behr exterior semi-gloss paint for probably 20 years. Its in my rental home and residence. Recently I bought Marquee for a newly painted bedroom and the results are remarkable. The paint's been on for about 18-24 months; we had to replace windows and some exterior rot, so there was partial sheet rock repair that required repainting/touch-up. I didn't have to repaint the whole wall again! Coverage match was excellent, and even with new rock didn't require excessive coverage. Love this paint - won't use any other brand. Greens, grays, yellows, blues, browns, reds. I've used white on the exterior at the rental and holding up very well too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only paint we use! We started a remodel in our kitchen and painted our wood cabinets with Dutch White. We LOVE the coverage and color. Although we followed steps to ensure great coverage, the paint made the project that much easier! LOVE this PAINT... BEST EVER!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Paint! I first tried Behr as an oops paint from a color return. I was thrilled because it was the paint company with a quality reputation and that sometimes costs more. I could hardly believe how much time it saved and the use of less rollers and supplies. Other brands often rolled on patchy. There are some things worth the money and Behr paint definitely makes the list!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will be doing 3rd coat today. Spent $$$ to have good paint and 1 coat NO. Wish there was an email so I could send picture of door I painted HORRIBLE. I have used Behr in every room has always been worth the money. Now I have wasted $$ and time. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always use Behr I only use behr! Have gotten multiple friends to switch to behr. Behr has the best coverage, other paints are watery in comparison. We always use Maui Mist for our ceilings & it makes other whites look dirty & yellow, you can definitely see were you painted!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not one coat paint. Did not cover up wood with two coats. White paint turned yellow. Not happy about spending that much money for the most expensive gallon of paint in the store for one coat paint that still doesn’t cover after two coats. Where’s the guarantee?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr paint I have been using behr paint for a long time it is the best paint I have used. The one think i love about behr paint is how thick its goes on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage Bouoght this paint for bathrooms. One bath had stains that always bleed through even when using primer. This pain in granite dust covered it with no issues in one coat. Very satisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from too expensive for what it is using dark color one coat to paint walls. Walls are clean from dust, and debris however paint is not sticking to the walls very good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from horrible adhesion just bought this paint and tried to paint my door within 30 minutes of purchasing. everywhere I tried to touch up runs became a textured horror. The paint pulled off the primer and no my door looks like orange peel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish ! We bought this paint to redo our living room. I wasn't sure if I wanted this brand but when I saw the finished product I was amazed ! Very beautiful color and texture and I find it alot easier to wipe dirt and smudges off. I will definitely go with again in the future !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best interior paint I've ever used. This is definitely one-coat paint. I used this in eggshell over an ugly purple flat paint that was super low quality and this paint covered it without an issue. It was nice and thick which made cutting the initial lines very easy and it rolled on like a dream. Imagine slathering a nice solid layer soft butter on your toast in the morning, that feeling of satisfaction you get. I shared that same feeling every single roll of the roller and swipe of the brush. This paint really makes it feel like you did a room remodel. It doesn't have a strong odor either. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint I bought this paint to use in my living room and I could not be happier. It was easy to apply and the color was spot on. One coat was really all it took. Now I want to paint the rest of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint Behr is the only paint we use in and on our house. The colors are beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True 1 coat coverage I was skeptical of Behr, bc it seems like everybody has a 1 coat "guarantee", but I decided to give them a try, as I have spent piles of money on other brands of paint that promised 1 coat coverage and didn't deliver on that. The paint is so well made and easy to clean up after my kids, I dont think I'll buy another brand again...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage I bought this paint because I needed to cover an awful green color in my bedroom. This paint covered great! I am very happy with color and coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant Color We have been using Behr paint products for years, but most recently was our laundry/pantry room makeover. Soul Search in the Marquee semi-gloss was the perfect choice for our space. It's bright and vibrant, and makes the small space seem bigger. The paint itself applied perfectly in one coat with little need for touch ups. Just one more reason as to why we will continue to buy Behr.
