Customer Questions & Answers

Is there a warning that may cause cancer or birth defects using this paint?

Is this paint safe for baby nursery?
Asked by: Firsttimeparentconcern
Hi Firsttimeparentconcern, Thanks for your question! Our paint label states the following: WARNING! This product contains chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Once the paint film has cured (this takes at least 30 days), it is considered non-toxic and won't pose a threat to anyone coming in contact with the coating through sitting or touching. This paint isn't Baby Safe or FDA approved though, so we don't recommend applying it to surfaces that will be exposed to the mouth (like a crib). Best wishes! - Sara

What's semi gloss

Asked by: wiz92
Hello wiz92, Great question. A semi-gloss sheen is the finish of the paint and leaves the wall glossy. Best regards, Kevin

Behr Marque paint states that it is guaranteed to cover your walls in 1 coat yet many of the reviews state that is not true what does the guarantee do if it takes more than 1 coat?
Asked by: futurecustomer
Personally I am not impressed with Behr paints. I have used their primer, ceiling paints, paint and primer on one etc. I just am not impressed with coverage these provide.

1 gal. #MQ2-48 Sturdy Brown One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Paint is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 213.

The paint was definitely not 1 coat. It was 2 coats plus a primer coat at least. It also would clump up and leave clumpy streaks on the wall. When I asked Home Depot staff about the guarantee, she laughed at me and said I had to contact Behr. Of course, I couldn't find any information about the guarantee on the Behr website. I've used cheaper Behr paints and they were fine, but I wouldn't recommend this Marquee paint to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Coat - light sage green on dark brown!! My dark brown bedroom needed more light and just a new look. The paint did 99% of the job. The room was dark brown and I feared it would take multiple coats to cover. I bought the Marquee based on its tag line. It was the easiest to use and best covering paint I have ever bought. I will never buy anything different. Thanks Behr!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money or time I bought the Behr Marquee interior paint thinking it would have amazing coverage. Not only does it go on splotchy but doesn't cover very well. The worst part is that when you peel the tape most of it comes with the tape. I tried to do a stripe and all of the paint pretty much peeled off. This paint is not worth the time, money and effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't touch up - Paint flashes even in matte This paint may cover well but try to go back 1 or 2 years later and do touch ups. It flashes horribly even in matte, so the whole wall needs to be repainted. Will never touch Behr paint again. I am not a DIYer. I am a contractor who has applied thousands of gallons of paint. This is my 2nd horrible experience with Behr. I'm done!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible One coat coverage my patootie! It took three and four coats and ended up costing me way more than my contractors quoted price thanks to all the extra paint he had to buy! Plus, it spreads so thick you can see brush strokes everywhere! Loved the Behr color, but hated the Behr paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to for one coat coverage I decided to take a chance on this paint since I normally purchase "middle of the road" quality products. I've used Behr's interior paints extensively in the past and been very happy with them, but I had a particularly challenging paint job to do so I went with Marquee. I was painting over a dark crimson high gloss in a bathroom and was thrilled that this paint actually did the job in one coat. Excellent time saver and well worth the extra expense. I recommend this product for anyone who needs to cover up dark colored walls. Outstanding! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I was skeptical about this paint covering the deep nutmeg color on my bedroom walls. I bought 2 gallons expecting to need at least 1.5. This paint covered everything with one coat - it was amazing. I only ended up using half of one gallon for my entire master bedroom. It went on easily and the coverage was flawless. As to the color, it's greenish gray, or grayish green. I can't tell yet - depends on the lighting. But it's a warm gray-family color, which is what we wanted. Goes on easily, great coverage, dries quickly. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers "Textured Walls" I purchased this product to cover a" sabel brown textured painted" bathroom. I was really worried because I thought it would take two coats I was putting a drastically lighter color on the wall. I painted a bit slower than normal to make sure the paint went over all the "texture" and the walls look fantastic! Very easy to use, covered what I considered to be a difficult textured wall to paint and I was totally impressed felt like I was in a commercial after I finished painting.
