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 I love this product! I LOVE the one coat coverage with the colors! Although, with white it sometimes does take two. But, I have used plenty other brands of white and it takes WAY more than two coats. Therefore, I am fine if a second coat may be needed to cover dark areas. I still and always will use this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from When it says one-coat that is all it takes We only use Behr paint inside and out. The Marquee line is wonderful. Worth every penny because of the time it saves you. I covered a dark colored door with a beige tone and it only took 1 coat. I truly was expecting 2-3 time to paint this door but Behr as up to the challenge again.
Date published: 2020-06-01

Date published: 2020-06-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covers well We will only use Behr Marquee when painting. Thick paint that covers well, usually with one coat. Other paints are thin and watery and require more coats. We have been very pleased with this product.
Date published: 2020-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I bought BEHR MARQUEE® Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel to complete a repair on a bedroom wall. Most of the bedroom was painted in an eggshell finish, but I wanted this short length of wall to have a glossy finish. The paint went on beautifully, and I love the final result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Age not diminished still quality I bought this some time ago and started to reuse the left over amount just this week. The paint was perfect. I used it to cover darker molding around windows, baseboard, and interior doors. The paint performed as if it was just purchased with superior coverage of the darker molding. I always buy Behr products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not big on the new lid. I love the brightness of the white. I’m using it on all my doors and trim now. Very happy with this product.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Behr paint!! I have repainted the whole interior of my home twice with Behr products. I love how it covers with just one coat. The paint goes on nicely and dries quickly too. I recommend it to everyone that talks about repainting their homes.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Coverage We had a dark red room in our house that had many coats of paint on it. We choose a very light color of paint and it covered it amazingly in one coat. Will buy over and over again.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I love my Behr paint. We’ve painted our whole home with it and will be painting our second home with it also. The finish is beautiful. It dries fast and looks great years after.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful colors but coverage was poor This was touted as one coat guarantee, which I can assure it took 2 coats despite proper prep. I don’t see the benefit in paying almost double for this paint when it works about as good as the mid range paint.
Date published: 2020-05-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Paint I painted a beautiful accent wall in our bedroom. This paint covered the previous color in one coat. Amazing!
