  • Allow paint film to dry for at least 60 minutes prior to rain showers when temperatures are between 60°-70° F (15°-21° C) and 60-70% relative humidity. Lower temperatures, higher humidity or deep colors may increase dry time and/or rain resistance time.

BEHR MARQUEE® Exterior Flat is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 201.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paint I’ve used! I love Behr paint and the Behr Marquee line is the best paint I’ve ever used. goes on thick and looks great when job is finished. No strong lingering odor. I live in the North East with harsh winters and the Behr Marquee stayed strong through this winter on vinyl siding! My project looks better and better everyday! I always use Behr paint for my important exterior work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paint We bought this to paint our exterior shutters and doors. The Marquee is the best paint to use. It costs more, but because it is 1 coat guaranteed it actually saves money. Plus, it saves time having the paint and primer in one. It goes on smoothly without showing brush strokes and wears well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Durable Coverage When I started work on my front porch, I was going through and replacing posts and found a great color I wanted to use, but I knew where I was painting was going to get some of the heavier weather. The exterior flat has withstood rain, hail, and snow perfectly. The color is still as vibrant as when it was painted, and I was expecting at least a little fading from the direct sunlight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it I bought the paint and primer a few years ago (5+) and did my trailer which I have since sold and now have another. I can't remember the name of the paint but it was like a avocado green and I did the trim and shutters in a sort of buttercream yellow. As I look over and see the trailer the paint is still as fresh as the day the guys painted for me. No fading or peeling. So this year I decided to paint my newer trailer and again I got the Behr Exterior paint and primer in one - I ordered a 5 gallon container on line as Home Depot only had gallons. The color I picked this time is Adirondack blue with white trim (2 gallons) and it looks fantastic. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that is thinking of painting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well, I Painted a Whole Mural! I spent two weeks painting a very detailed exterior mural in Washington. Picking the right paint was pretty essential: I needed long lasting acrylic paint. The application was great! Keep your lids on; the paint dries fast. 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly one coat coverage! When you are paint something as large as a HOUSE you DO NOT go cheap unless you don’t value your time! I painted (by myself) my entire house. It was a horrendous Dark brown and the paint covered almost flawlessly. I was painting T-111 siding so there were spots that were not touched by the roller and had to be brushed. worth the $

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint! Usually exterior flat paints are hard to keep clean, especially towards the foundation where splattering tends to happen. I painted my entire house (including the foundation) in the Marquee, and it rinses off so easily! It looks impeccable, and I have a 50 year old house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint ever!!! We are renovating a victorian house from 1894 and have used the marquee paint inside on every room that we have painted so far with many rooms to go. With summer being here in Wisconsin we had to move to the outside so we will be using it on 4 porches and all the trim. Doing all the work ourselves. Behr marquee paint is awesome!!! We would use nothing but Behr paint inside & outside. Love love love your product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I bought this paint 5 years ago for my shop. I liked it so much I painted my house with it. It stands up to the Arizona sun very well
Date published: 2020-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great coverage! Painted a "silver polish" white flat over glossy orange exterior of our house. coverage is GREAT. No need for two coats, maybe only in areas where you use brush to trim edges and thats only bc brush bristles make slight lines. Impressed with the coverage!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covers Well I bought this product about three years ago to repaint a shed in my backyard. I LOVE the coverage and adhesion and the color is beautiful. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is that the flat just doesn't seem to have the staying power of a satin or semi-gloss over time. I've already had a bit of chipping (only a little) and it's only been 3 years. I spent the extra money on Marquee because of the long wear of the paint. Next time I'll go with a different sheen and expect my result will be better, but I was REALLY pleased with the coverage. I painted grey over white and it was a one coat application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable paint! We tried BEHR MARQUEE for the first time when we bought our house in 2013. We painted it a light gray while we figured out what we were doing with the exterior. We started our project and decided to change the color... we knew BEHR MARQUEE was what we needed, because the paint lasted years looking great before we decided to change the color. It is still a work in progress, but we definitely recommend BEHR MARQUEE for its quality, durability and beautiful colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoothness I purchased Behr Marquee to paint my exterior home and it went on as smooth as silk. A great product! I do not have to worry about the possibility of rain after the first hour of drying time. In the past, my outdoor painting activities were hampered by the forecast of rain but now I can finish my exterior house painting in a timely fashion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good coverage Have used this product on multiple exterior jobs that contained rough surfaces. Cedar and the like. And have been very happy with the coverage, and the finished product. And with the durability.

This product flows very well and always makes for a good job in the end. I have very satisfied customers. Thanks for the consistency!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Coverage I am a remodeling contractor and I have used many different paint brands but Behr Marquee is excellent. It is the best one-coat paint out there, it has excellent coverage and really minimizes flaws. It has a great life span too. I have been using it for years and it still looks great on the houses that I had painted with it. I do not use anything else.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs two coats This paint required two coats which disappointed me. However, we were very happy with the rich color. Didn’t like the new pouring cap. Instead I removed the entire top to pour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage, dries quickly! I used this on brick molding and garage door. Covers nicely, dries quickly. I only needed one coat! It rained 4 hours after I painted, but paint was already dry and it didn't affect the paint job. The color is beautiful. I was so impressed, I will only buy this paint for exterior painting needs!
