PREMIUM PLUS ® Interior / Exterior Hi-Gloss Enamel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 247.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I bought this product just a few weeks ago and loved it. I used it on a rental property to paint all interior and exterior jobs. The job had red and black paint all over it but coverage on this product was great and all area was covered with two coats. I have used it for years and that's why I keep going back to this product. Sorry I did not take pictures of the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Doors and Trim I wanted doors and trim to be glossy and bright white like those of my childhood. I just paint this on everything: doors, windowsills, baseboards and door trim. It made my rooms look like they should. It will be very protective and makes everything looks new! I will buy more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Oder, Excllent Coverage, Great Value. I use this product frequently to paint sandply - cabinet grade plywood or sheetrock. It covers well. It has no oder. It dries quickly and is bright and crisp... This Equal or better than much more expensive premium grades of competing brand names...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super versatility This product has proven to be of extremely high quality both inside and outside of the home, and it makes it so much easier not to have different paints for interior and exterior use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy does it! I'm a73 year old retired kitchen designer and contractor. I'm from the "old school". Behr Hi-Hi gloss white is the contractor's best friend. Not just a great value but, a great product. Spent 42 years remodeling and repairing my home. Recently did some woodwork touch-up on trim prior to selling it. After 7 years it was STILL a perfect match. Cleans up beautifully and looks like a million.......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value! I have used this paint for years on exterior and interior application of my rental property and it wears well for the price. I wish it were a little thicker for ceiling application and it does peel a little when used on exterior over caulked surface. But overall surprisingly shiny for a latex paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best and Easiest Maintenance Paint I've been using Behr paint for over 30 years. In my condo in New York and now in my home in Florida. I love my Hi Gloss walls. They're easy to clean with little hands all over the home. I definitely recommend it over and over again. I'm A Happy Picky Individual.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great color, outcome not great I bought this to paint a desk. Surface was sanded, cleaned, and smooth. When applying second coat (3hrs after 1st) paint started lifting and created a rough texture I now cannot remove, and no glossy shine.
Date published: 2021-03-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Currently using.... Not a great product. Don’t understand why I can’t get a high-gloss Behr paint in one of their highest quality paints. Makes no sense. Coverage requires priming and multiple coats. I realize that water-based paints will never be as durable or glossy as oil-based paints, but this isn’t even close. I’ve been painting houses -interior and exterior - for close to 60 years. Will be looking elsewhere in the future. Not sure how their rating is 4.8 given the repeated poor reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst paint I ever used I bought this paint at home depot and it was mixed by them. We are talking white high gloss enamel. This paint was thin .and caused streaking and would not cover, I had to put three coats on two door frames and finally got disgusted and went and bought a different brand . I followed all instructions concerning proper brush and temperature. Paid premium price for a can of cr-p !!!
