BEHR® Drywall Plus Primer & Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
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.
