Reviews

BEHR ® Drywall Primer & Sealer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible coverage I used this paint in various rooms and it had very poor coverage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interior primer I have been using this primer in a rehab home we have been working on. It worked so much better than the competetors products that we have used it for 50 percent of the home already. The coverage is better than I had expected so we are not using as much product as we had originally anticipated. I would recommend this product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Covers like milk We’ve gone through almost 20 gallons of this primer. It takes 5 coats to cover grey, blue, green, and yellow. It takes 2 coats to thoroughly cover white. If you’d like to see how this primer would cover your wall, brush or roll some whole milk onto your wall, 2% milk might be a little thin of a a comparison. We chose a Behr under the impression it was a premium paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Primer We are in the process of painting our new home's interior and am using this primer on all of our walls. It is premium quality and makes such a difference in the finishing of the walls. The clean up is super easy, since it is water based. We have always loved BEHR paints and their range of products work so well together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth Application with Excellent coverage! I am a DIY that recently landed a job fixing, cleaning, repairing rentals. The pony wall was severely water damaged. I used Behr Drywall Plus primer sealer that absorbed the porosity of the patch then painted to match. It was so much easier than a regular primer that never seems to stop soaking in. In fact, it worked so well that after I scraped the heated crayon flowers (designed by a renter and their child) off the walls in this room, I used the Behr Drywall Plus primer/sealer to cover the residual crayon too. Although not recommended, I had the product and it worked great keeping the crayon from bleeding through. This is an excellent product!
