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 THIS PAINT IS AWSOME! I used Behr Ultra paint to paint the exterior of my house last fall. The paint went on so smooth and since it was the same color that I was using, one coat was all that I needed. I used a paint sprayer and a roller and a paintbrush and they all worked beautifully on my aluminum siding. I would highly recommend Behr paint for the interior also for great coverage and durability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Craft projects I use the Behr Ultra for outdoor wood crafts that are subject to the weather every day. I have not heard one complaint from customers that the paint has not held up, I have thousands of items out there. The color is pumpkin patch and the reps at the store know me by what I need being that is an odd color for 10 gallon at a time. I have brushed, rolled and sprayed the paint and it is awesome to use and it covers well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for the price This paint is holding up well so far and went on with no issues. We painted a tiny house Black Sapphire (purplish undertone was more intense than we thought, but it looks good with Gray Squirrel and white trim and accent colors.) It could be that the paint was a Deep Tone Base, but it still seemed thinner than a similar deep tone in Sherwin Williams Duration paint. Still, it had good coverage and hasn’t cracked, peeled, or faded after 2 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic coverage I painted my garage door and entry door to match my shutters. The paint flowed well and leveled out nicely- no brush marks. It covered in one coat. It was a quick and easy fix to add curb appeal.
