Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & PrimeBlank space if empty.

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.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • 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.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • 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 Great Paint texture I bought BEHR MARQUEE two years ago. I was so pleased with the color, which was gray. The paint rolled on the wall like butter. I have always used BEHR BUT, I love the MARQUEE series of colors. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I won't use anything else!! Listen, I get bored with colors easily so I change paint colors pretty often. I discovered the difference in other paints (cheaper) 5 years ago when I moved into a new place. I made a mistake and got cheap paint bc I had a lot of rooms to paint and wanted to save some money. Big mistake!! I have had to repaint ALL of those rooms at least once. I started switching over to Behr Marquee over the last year and I'm telling you there is a definite difference. Spend the extra money. Do it all in 1 coat. Tons of colors and they all complement each other. I just painted my master bedroom yesterday. There is no smell and it looks so amazing!! One coat. Dried quickly. I couldn't be happier. All I have left are 2 bedrooms to repaint and I already have the paint for one. You better believe it's Behr Marquee. You will not be disappointed. Just try it. You'll never go back to cheap paint.
