Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat Coverage For Sure I bought this item about a year ago. I used for the cealing in my entire house, and to be honest one coating was all I needed. The cealing looks really good. No line or Mark's from the painting, the quality of the job and time savings using this type of paint product is really worth the price. One Coat Done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverws the stains Needed to paint the ceiling after roof damage repaired ( contractors were not responsible for the interior) . Went on easy, no irrating smells and covered in one coat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from there's not another brand better than this product Easily as good as paint brands that are twice the price. This is most often a one-coat paint, saving me the two step process, and usually a two product process, that I frequently encounter.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed The Marquee line is not a single but better than the cheapest Behr. I actually believe the cheaper is a but thicker providing a little better coverage than the Marquee

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long-lasting Ceiling Paint I painted my living room ceiling with this enduring paint about 15 years ago. I have since repainted my walls 5 times, and have not had to repaint the ceiling. This paint definitely does the job, and it long-lasting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Coverage I was finishing a basement ceiling and had to have sheetrock repaired. Unfortunately, the repairs resulted in the need to be repainted. The Behr Marquee did an outstanding job of providing a smooth finish. Easy to apply and cleanup was a snap.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covering frog tape green walls I used this on what could only be described as "frog tape" green walls in my mother's bedroom. Covered beautifully.
Date published: 2021-04-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from good coverage and outcome used this ceiling paint on ceilings that hadn't been painted in 10+ years. It went on smoothly, and evenly. Ended up doing a second coat to take some of the lines out but overall it was a quality product that gave excellent results. Finished look is very professional and worth the cost versus buying a cheaper ceiling paint that would have required probably 3 coats to get it done right. Will use Behr Marquee ceiling paint for all my future ceiling paint projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We bought this to use in prepping our bathroom ceiling for repainting, but used it in a few other places we had water damage! Let me tell you, it's not just for ceilings! Worked great on the walls near 2 doors that had water damage! Highly recommended!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can said Flat, finish is Matt As a long time painter. I only would use DEAD FLAT. Anything with a gloss will not do. Hiding ability is excellent.
Date published: 2021-03-31
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Shiny and left streaks Not a fan of this ceiling paint. It's not flat and left streaks on my ceiling. Will be going over it with a second coat in different paint (that we used in mine and my daughter's room with no problems) to get the clean flat look I was looking for.
Date published: 2021-03-31
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shiny and blotchy Very disappointed in this paint. Description on paint can is misleading. It's not flat but rather shiny. It took two coats to get some coverage and there are still streaks visible. In the sunlight paint strokes are visible. When a ceiling light is on, streaks and swirls are visible. One and 1/2 gallon covered half of suggested area for this paint (small kitchen and the strip in the picture). It definitely needs a primer to be applied first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the purchase We have been in our home for close to 14 years, while decorating the top of my cupboards, I was shocked to see how dull the ceiling was looking. off the Home Depot's paint Dept. I chose the BEHR Marquee stain blocking paint and primer, as i have used marquee before, with excellent results. It covered so easily , evenly and dried quickly. Easy cleanup, and I like that fact that the ceiling looks like new again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Marquee Stain-Blocking Paint and primer ceil Goes on smoothly and easily and covers very well. Covered up years of wear on a house built in 1975. Now looks new and clean. Very happy with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I used Marquee Stain-Blocking Paint and Primer Ceiling paint because we had a leak in our roof that stain our ceiling. This product worked beautifully at sealing the stain and covering it.
