  • Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Paint as a primer over properly prepared coated or uncoated surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we needed I have been nothing but pleased with our the Behr Premium Plus paint. Our toddler has already tested its durability and washing his artwork off the walls has been a breeze. The primer/paint combo also made application so much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for furniture rehab I just recently completed a couple of furniture painting projects with this base, and I was very happy with the experience from start to finish. I chose pomegranate to paint some shelves I built for my kids’ play area - the paint went on easily and looked just as I expected when dry. I also painted an old washstand in the sea glass shade. Again - great coverage, and the piece looked fantastic after applying a light coat of furniture wax. Behr is my go-to paint for DIY and home decor projects because the results are great every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Coverage/ Durability We have owned our home for 19 years and have never used anything other than Behr paint. The exterior stains have held up well against upstate New York climate. We found beautiful colors for every room in the house. We used Behr Ultra premium plus eggshell finishes for the kitchen and baths which are durable and elegant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My paint project I needed to paint my bedroom. The obvious choice was BEHR paint which I have been using for quite a while in other paint projects. My bedroom is quite large, so I bought two gallons. To my pleasant surprise, I only needed one gallon for the job and enough to retouch my painting. BEHR is the perfect paint. They have an awesome color variety. I always go with BEHR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I generally choose Behr over other brands for two main reasons: 1) Price 2) It's the only brand who delivers a true "flat" and not a matte. (Matte still has a slight sheen.) I wouldn't sacrifice quality for price, so it's a good thing that this paint delivers both. I had a professional help me with the living room and she had never used Behr before. She was surprised at how well it went on and covered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good coverage I have only used part of a gallon of the several gallons that I recently purchased. Being a fan and long time user of Behr, I must say this is the best that I have purchased. Few drips, great coverage and good work ability make me eager to use the rest of the paint on a bigger project.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great "Flat Finish I purchased 2 gallons several months ago for a re-paint of my garage interior. And while I was very pleased with the end results and how good my garage looks now---I couldn't give the product 5 stars because I had to "return" one of the can's to Home Depot because the paint wouldn't flush through the painter's spray painting machine. So I returned it and purchased another gallon can of another brand so that I wouldn't delay the job any longer. Certainly, it may not have been the "paint"...maybe it was the sales associate not "mixing" the can well or the painter's machine could have been the fault, either way-I just decided that to be there, 4 stars would sum up my satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best!! I recently purchased to repaint an apartment in which I painted about 5 years ago with this same brand. It’s great only one coat was enough and looks so good I will continue to use and definitely will recommend.
