Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint, Last for Years I bought this for my daughters college home. We used a sprayer and Behr paint has such a great constituency and no clogging. Boys (brothers) painted home in a weekend. She loves the colors and we loved the way it covered over the old. House looked new, we get a lot of compliments, Thanks Behr

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRODUCT I use this product anytime I'm doing an outdoor paint project. It's a good thick paint and it covers VERY well. I have them put in some B-2 when I'm when I'm not coloring changing and using white. It helps going over darker colors. I'm very impressed and will continue keeping this on hand..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage! I used this brand to paint all the fascia on LP trim boards around the perimeter of my home. Coverage was great, 1 heavy coat only. The white looks great with the gray siding! Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY Dream We painted our house years ago with Behr Ultra and it was in better condition the whole time than our new “pro” paint job is after a month! The guys insisted on using their preferred brand claiming it was so much better (even though they also acknowledged our house didn’t even need painting since the old color was in such good shape). I had to touch up a couple spots after making a repair using the same paint they used and it doesn’t compare to Behr! Our Behr Ultra went on smoothly with full coverage, adhered beautifully over 8+ years of central Florida weather, and didn’t even noticeably fade. I wish I would have done this new color myself using Behr - I guess I will be soon enough come to think of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased a green color for my shutters and doors. Great coverage, very smooth, and so easy to use even for an average do it yourself woman like me. Made the job so easy. Also purchased a white for some outside doors and columns. The quality of this paint can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great coverage I recently used Behr Marquee Exterior Satin paint to freshen up the wood paneling above my stonework as well as the front and garage door on my 1961 ranch home. I was very impressed at how well this paint covered and brought to life my home. I bought the house in 2016 and this was my first opportunity to paint it. I chose a Behr color, "Blueprint" and I couldn't be more happy with the results. My neighbors really love the color also and gave me several compliments. I'm half tempted to remove the vinyl siding from the rest of the house and paint it too! Thanks for a great product that not only improved my home but my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint ! I painted a bench & bookcase I keep outside all year round. Exposed to all the elements. It lasts for years & protects the wood well. Paint is easy to work with. Will also prepare the mailbox stand & give that a coat before winter sets in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coverage After talking with a realtor, it was suggested we paint the exterior of our house. It had cedar shingles that were peeling paint. We had bought behr ultra paint for the back porch and went with the same paint and color. In one week, the whole exterior of the house was painted and in most places with just one coat. The house went from looking dull to beautiful. Shutters and front door painted as well. We will use Behr paint for the rest of our lives.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Takes 3 coats to cover primer! I used Behr Ultra deep base to paint the exterior of my building, the stuff is the greatest paint I've ever used, covered everything in 1 coat. I was so happy I bought Behr Ultra Exterior Satin ultra white to paint some trim, IT'S THE WORST PAINT I'VE EVER USED! It takes 3 coats to cover some light gray primer, 4 coats to cover anything else that had been painted previously. The paint is very thin compared to the deep base paint. I paid good money for garbage paint, NEVER AGAIN!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it ♥️ I purchased Behr Ultra exterior satin enamel in Shadow Mountain. I painted the exterior part of my doors of my house and live it. Next will be purchasing my exterior house color by Behr as well, just had to finalize which color I wanted to go with. I couldn't be happier with my choice in Brand and color. I always choose Behr when working on a paint project. ♥️♥️♥️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and beautiful color! I am so happy I decided on Behr paint for the exterior of my home. It is covering so well we don't even need a second coat (we brushed by hand). The color we chose was Monsoon and it is EXACTLY what I had envisioned! I will add a photo when we are finished, but I couldn't be happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily absorbed into very dry old painted surface After cleaning all the wood and permitting a 48 hour dry time, this paint went on well on the porch swing with two coats over three days. The door was a much simpler, even with needing to scrape and sand. They have held up well in below freezing temps three winters in a row.
