Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & Prime†Blank space if empty.
  • All surfaces should be properly prepared and cleaned. Remove loose paint, wash off dirt and grease with detergent, rinse and allow to dry.
  • Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain remover. Scuff sand glossy surfaces and repair imperfections. Remove all dust with a damp cloth, allow to dry.
  • Allow new stucco, plaster, and masonry to cure for 30 days before painting.
  • Use BEHR ULTRA paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (two primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas.
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA as a spot primer.
  • For heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA as a topcoat to a small section. If the stain bleeds through the topcoat, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before topcoating. If bleeding continues, longer dry time is needed before top coating.
  • For drastic color changes or when applying deep colors denoted with a dagger (†) on the color chip, apply a tinted primer coat of BEHR ULTRA if needed.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Stir paint occasionally. Intermix containers of same product to ensure color and sheen uniformity.
  • Use a high quality 3/8-1/2" nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer (.015-.019" spray tip, 60 mesh filter).
  • Do not thin if using a roller or brush; however, if using a sprayer and thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Certain colors may require more than one coat for complete hide.
  • Darker colors may require additional dry time between coats. Cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time.
  • After 4 weeks, cured paint film may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Dry paint film is mildew resistant.
  • Do not use on floors.
DisposalBlank space if empty.
  • For disposal of empty containers, unused paint and soiled rags, contact your household refuse collection service.

PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior Eggshell Enamel No. 2750 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 2060.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality paint! Once you start using this brand, you will really enjoy how well the paint applies, as well how great it looks. A friend recommended it to me and I've been a fan ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loyal Fan I have rarely used any other brand of paint. Why mess with perfection? I love the rich velvety look it gives my walls. I am a texture/textile fan and have a very eclectic-global inspired home. The look of Behr Eggshell paint provides a great backdrop for my antique furniture as well as my favorite art. It is soothing, welcoming & goes on like a breeze. I am in love with my living room that I did in Blueprint, along with a few other blues and ivory.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coverage Not the best coverage for a wallpaper wall, it took two coats of paint and I really need to apply another coat. However the paint is easy to clean up with soap and water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for older home! When purchasing our home built in 1923, we were nervous about choosing a paint to cover the existing dark blue painted walls and who knows what else underneath. With Behr , our home recieved a freshened look as we chose the shade Chat room for our upstairs . Very pleased with the quality & color selection. Looking to paint our downstairs and exterior soon using Behr paint as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Paint!! I have now painted nearly every room in my home with exception of my kids rooms & laundry with Behr paint. I love how well it coats. My nearest Home Depot is over 20 miles away but every time I have to touch up paint I’m reminded why it’s worth the drive instead of Menards’ choices! I will never go back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blueberry Whip Interior I purchased the Behr Ultra with Scuff Defense in the Blueberry Whip color. I really like the eggshell finish since it is like latex paint and is good at resisting dirt and grime. You only need one or two coatings which is great and doesn't take long to dry. It is also affordable. I would highly recommend Behr.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from What a Disappointment We have always used Behr paint in our home, both interior and exterior and have always loved it. For the interior, in the past, we used the Behr Premium Plus Ultra and loved it. We recently went to Home Depot to purchase paint for a bedroom and found out the Premium Plus Ultra is no longer available, but we were assured the Ultra was the same, just a name change. If this were the first time I ever used Behr paint I can guarantee it would be the last. It has gone from a paint I love to something I just wasted $30+ on. I began painting by cutting in the trim and find the paint is streaking, not covering and is generally worthless. I painted less than 6 feet of trim and stopped painting. I will be on my way to the store to purchase another brand of paint, I will not waste my time with this. I cannot tell you how disappointed I am. For at least 15+ years my husband and I swore by Behr paint and recommended it to more people than I can count. That surely will not be the case ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint ever to use The past 17 years I have always used BEHR paints to do what ever job needs done. Easy to use, easy clean up. My walls from boring to Wow !! Weather it be eggshell enamel for my living room or my bathroom cabinets.When I choose BEHR I can never go wrong.. Love this paint..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colors are not true to description I purchased the color “Flowerpot” in exterior satin paint & primer to bring life back into my front door. We wanted a subtle pop of color but something neutral and warm toned to complement our homes exterior. We chose this color off the online selection and description. The color online and the color we received were not the same. The description read “this earthy clay embellished with overtones of dusty rose. The perfect neutral shade to complement just about any color you can imagine”. We were excited to have a pop of color that was an “earthy clay” and still a “neutral shade”. The color swatch seemed to exhibit that however the color now on my front door does not. We chose to go ahead and paint even though the paint in the can seemed off. We have been told by Home Depot that the color will dry darker and the correct color. Sadly this was not the case and we have a pretty pearly pink door. I would not recommend the color paint swatches to be true to what the costumer wants. It also has been pretty saddening that we have reached out twice to BEHR via email and no reply yet. I can not comment on the quality of the paints longevity since we will be repainting ASAP but I can comment that the quality of the paint right after application. We used the appropriate brushes and tape for application prior to painting. When removing the painters tape, and yes we even used a razor blade to release the edge, the paint peeled right off the trim. We also fully cleaned our front door and removed old chipping paint prior to application. Our over all experience has been poor with BEHR paint. Photo below.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst paint ever! This paint was pale pink. Went on gray. Awful match and couldn't be fixed. Would never use again.
Date published: 2020-08-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint ever I bought this just before the virus hit, gave me a good reason to finally paint my bedroom to replace an awful brown color with a beautiful gray tone, (Silver Screen). I was not sure if I should buy more than two gallons, since I was not convinced it would only take one coat. Took a chance and bought only 2 gallons, used only about a very small amount from second gallon, not even 1/4, mind you I have a large bedroom (20 x 18) with high Peak ceiling. It only took one coat and the egg shell is beautiful, the room has such a warm and inviting feel now. I am so happy with this product and will purchase more soon since it will also go into the finally master bath remodel as well. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to do any painting and minimize buying more than needed and looking to only paint the walls once rather than a second coat, at least it worked with my darker brown/beige color I had . Love this product. Get what you pay for, associates were very helpful and knowledgeable as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well pleased Purchased house that interior not painted in 28 years. One coated covered well. Applied second coat because I wanted to really make up for 28 years of neglect. 3 years later, still washable and bears up well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old house gets fresh paint I just finished painting yesterday, so I can't really write to it's durability. However, I can talk about the painting process. The paint went up in a 250 year old house on plaster walls that were once covered in wallpaper - so think imperfect walls, dents, divots and cracks. The paint worked really well to cover variations in the plaster, even though it was a light color. I was skeptical that the primer would actually work on some spots - but it did! I'm really happy with the coverage and how easy it was to paint. One coat was pretty much enough, though I did have to go back and touch up in a few spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint was amazing We remodeled my daughters bedroom and the colors that were offered made it hard to choose just one. Once we did painting was a snap. The coverage was amazing and the paint odor was low. We will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I bought this paint to cover up awful (very dark, primary colors) colors in our basement. I covered with lighter paint colors with 1 coat with a few touch ups due to painter error.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it Used Behr Ultra to paint my son's room a dark green. The finish was perfect. It was easy to use and I did it in 1 coat with a few touch ups (on places I missed oops!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color, smooth application My son was sick of his white matte-finish walls, so he repainted it with Behr Ultra eggshell interior paint, Speedboat color. His room is lit by a floor lamp, so we didn't want a dark color. This color is perfect. I just wish the paint would wash out of the rollers and paintbrushes better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Use and Covers Everything! I bought this a month ago to repaint our bathroom, it’s was a horrible eggplant purple and it needed to be changed. I bought the Ultra Pure White and it covered it in two coats! It’s brights, vibrant and perfect! And any spots that weren’t where they were supposed to be, they wiped off easily with a damp cloth or could be easily scraped off. Loved it and will be painting everything!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One coat coverage I got the the color Creek Bend and absolutely love it with white trim. I’ve Behr paints!
