Reviews

BEHR ® Drywall Primer & Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from One coat on new cieling I was very happy with the coverage of the primer on my new cieling that was built in my living room. One coat covered all of the spackle even in the darkest areas and allowed the paint to spread smoothly on top of the primer. Made painting the cieling a little less painful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coverage! I bought this primer & sealer because of a friend's recommendation and it did not disappoint! The coverage was great and covered my basement project. It covered my walls quickly and it was nice to be able to apply the BEHR Marquee Eggshell paint over it.
