Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage! I am very impressed with the application of this paint. Every room I have painted so far has covered in just one coat. It also cleans very easily from smudges and spills. Can’t recommend this product strongly enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long Lasting!! I've been using Behr interior paint exclusively for the past 20 years. We changed some decor recently and expected to have to repaint walls that were painted 15 years ago. I was shocked to see that the touch up paint blended perfectly. That's what I call long lasting. I still plan to repaint but it bought me some time to decide on a new color and wait for a sale. And to think I was contemplating trying another brand. I'm sticking with Behr!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I flip houses for a living and Behr Premium Plus is my go-to paint for all of my rehabs. Great hide and coverage at a good mid level price point. Look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coverage first time for using Behr paint. Painted over dark walls that hadn't been painted in 10 years. Excellent coverage with only one coat. Paint was virtually dripless. Wonderful product. Price was best compared to 3 other top rated brands of paint. Have painted 3 rooms so far and paint bought to do 3 more rooms. Only Behr from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paint I have ever used in 30 years of busines I have used them all. I can see where a novice might get discouraged. Anyone can paint (as most people think), but that does not make them a painter. You need to know what you are doing to get the maximum benefit of any paint. Do not expect it to just jump on the walls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really hard to work with I recently used this paint for walls and closet doors and on both it was really hard to get an even sheen. The closet doors were a nightmare. Some colors required 3 coats. Trying to touch up a surface flaw left a shiny blotch requiring repainting the entire surface. This despite having mixed and remixed the paint frequently. I fared no better with Ultra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat Looks Great The employee at Home Depot suggested I buy this paint as I wanted to paint the paneling in my basement that is a medium brown. I used an off-white color and a thick roller and the walls looked great after one coat. I did have to touch up but what a time saver that was. I always use Behr paint and will continue to use it. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One and done! I'm updating a house that hasn't been painted in some time. One coat of this has covered even the saturated peppermint pink in a bedroom! Not needing to use a coat of primer and a second color coat saves money for more paint and labor time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint I've been all for 15 years now I've tried other brands not happy with them I find Behr Paint to be the easiest to use with the best coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Always Use Behr Paints In My Home I will always use Behr paints in my home. I Love Behr paint colors, coverage, lasts a long time after painting anything, and their paint has low to no odor smell. This way, I get to enjoy painting in my home, get no headaches, and I am always happy with the final results of my projects with Behr. Thank You and Keep Those Paint Colors Coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr is my go to paint I've always preferred Behr over other brands, great coverage and will dry to a hard finished with a short dry time. I'm disappointed with the new plastic cans and lids, after use it's hard to get a good seal with the lid, the paint drys top the exposed plastic inside the container and then loosens and deposits into the good paint of the next use causing lumps on the item you're painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint hands down! You have to work a little faster and heavier the less gloss there is, but the finish is absolutely perfect! I am very sensitive to smells, and this is the only paint that I can tolerate. The smell is definitely way less than any other paints and goes away within a couple of days. Behr is the only paint that I will ever recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grade A+ I bought this paint to spruce up my new office space. The coverage was excellent and went on very smoothly. The color was exactly what I anticipated to be and I love the fact that there is no paint smell to run people out of the office. The cleanup was easy and I know from past experience that it wears very well. This is all I ever buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not very good coverage dries too fast im not very happy with this paint. Its going on primered drywall. I used kilz original as the primer. I usually use sherwin williams but had some of this. I liked the color but the walls required FOUR coats of paint to get good coverage. That is insane for something that says "one coat coverage" on the can. Maybe you could do it in one coat if you were okay with drips running down the walls. Also even stranger it seemed to dry different colors. Anyways it was a huge hassle but now it looks okay. So basically i dont have any pros and a lot of cons, four hour dry time recoat time but it seems to be dry to touch after 20 minutes. Anyways it changed the wall color but used 2 gallons in a tiny bathroom. I still have a few gallons and will try spraying it next time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lumpy We bought 25+ gallons to spray, we had to clean the filter after every 5 gallon bucket because of the lumps. We won't buy this again. We'll stick with the ultra from now on. We have lots more to go. All walls in 4 bedrooms, great room , foyer, formal living room, bathrooms and laundry. We do like Behr paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality paint! I Recently began painting my house with this paint and I am so impressed and pleased with the quality. It goes on well and barely needs two coats. It does not pick up dirty fingerprints easily, which I’m thrilled about because I painted the walls white. Thank you, BEHR for designing this great high-quality paint!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick drying, no odor Two coats were required because of the wall color I was painting over, but the paint dried quickly so I was able to finish the job in one day. I like the slight sheen with the eggshell finish. And I absolutely love the color - “Soft Denim!”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected Behr paint is the only paint I purchase. I remodeled my bathroom and I am over the moon with the end product. The even spread and color are amazing. I do and will recommend Behr paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low smell; great coverage I painted 3 of my children's bedrooms over the past 4 months using Behr Premium Plus. I only needed one coat, which dried quickly and had very little smell, which dissipated quickly. I plan on painting the rest of my house in the coming months and will use this paint again.
Date published: 2020-06-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Easy to Use, No bad smells I have only used Berh Premium Plus and never have been disappointed with a paint job. I am in no way a professional painter which speaks to how easy it is to use Berh’s paint products. The paint goes on well, there’s no VOC’s so it doesn’t smell bad, and one can of paint goes a long way. Dries to the touch in about 20-30 minutes.
