Customer Questions & Answers

what type of paint do I use in the bathroom where there is moisture?

Asked by: nick
If you're painting new drywall you can prime it with any number of products then finish it with an acrylic (water based) paint. I personally would choose a paint with a sheen rather than using a flat or matte paint. I've had good luck with premium semi-gloss acrylics, most recently using the Behr semi-gloss product. If you are painting a previously painted surface, make sure you do some preparation before applying your finish coat. First, make sure the walls are clean and free of residue. Whatever cleaning method you use, be sure that you have thoroughly removed any soap or chemicals. If you want to apply a good primer it will increase your chance of success. That said, I recently painted my small bathroom by wiping the walls with a damp cloth, letting them dry, then applying semi-gloss acrylic paint directly on the old paint, which was also an acrylic product. After six months it still looks like new. Fortunately for us paint is getting better and better. When you go to buy your paint I recommend that you find the most knowledgeable available employee and ask their advice. They will probably direct you to the right product.

We want to paint our kitchen cabinets (vineer plywood) to another color. Will this work?

Asked by: isha
This would work for you and it would make a wonderful cabinet color! I recommend to first wipe your cabinets down with TSP to get rid of any grease or other residue. It might take off the shine but that's good. Then sand your cabinets and prime them. Even though this paint works as a primer as well, I find it is still better to prime before to get good coverage. After you prime sand lightly again and apply your paint. After your paint dries you will need to seal it. I highly recommend sealing it 3 times. Kitchen cabinets get wet and dirty easily and you don't want to ruin your wonderful paint job. I use Minwax polyacrylic seal and it works great! Hope this helps!

What recourse do you have if you don't get one-coat coverage?

I am covering yellow with yellow, and am having to go back over the surface several times to get decent coverage. Big waste of very expensive paint! First time I tried the Marquee, and I'm very disappointed. I have used the regular Behr paint under similar circumstances before and had better results.
Asked by: RAS
You can buy another gallon. The opacity of this paint is superior to anything else I have tried. You may very well be able to get by with one coat. However, if you don't achieve that, then buy more paint. You'll buy less of this to achieve the result you want than you will of most other paints.

We are repainting a dark red room with pale palomino. Will this paint cover in one coat?

Asked by: Stosh
Hello Stosh, Thanks for your question. It may or may not cover the dark red in one coat, but actually this paint wouldn't be guaranteed to cover in one coat in this case because Pale Palomino (HDC-CT-05) is not a part of the 1-Coat palette. The requirements are to use a 1-Coat color (not including Ultra Pure White) and to apply the paint to a previously painted or primed surface. Best wishes for your project!

1 gal. #MQ5-49 Expressionism One-Coat Hide Matte Interior Paint is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 617.

We purchased Behr Marquee paints for several rooms in our house, and overall the product was OK at best. First, the little star on the can after the one coat guarantee that says that only some colors are covered by the guarantee is pretty misleading. Make sure you ask at the paint desk for the book of actual one coat colors. We hired a painter to do the painting after taking a look at all the work that we wanted done, and there were some coverage issues with some of the actually guaranteed colors, once we found out what they were, as you can see from the attached picture. Home Depot pointed me at Behr for the guarantee and I reached out to them. Three weeks later I still have not heard back from them about my complaints. I would suggest going with a company that actually stands behind their product, which Behr doesn't seem to do.

I just painted my bathroom ceiling and it made such a sticky mess I don't even know how to repair the damage. I have always loved Behr paint and had recently painted the ceiling a darker color and decided I didn't like it. So I decided to try the Marquee paint due to its one coat coverage. What a huge mistake. If you are going to use this paint you had better have a professional do it. I bet even the professionals would tell you to stay away from this paint. If you try to go back over a spot you missed even if it is within 10 seconds you will have a big glob of stickiness that is unrepairable!

I have painted a lot in my time, and I have used many different paints/brands (including other Behr products); they all had their pros/cons and overall I had been happy with Behr paint. With that said, I am extremely disappointed and I doubt I will use Behr paints again, or a least not the Marquee. For the price point and marketing hype, I expected much more. The job took 3-4 coats and twice as long; it should have only taken 2 coats; I wasted valuable time and money, which I should have not had to lose. I sincerely hope the product will hold up to the tests of time and routine maintenance; however, based on the early issues, I am very skeptical.

This is the worst paint I have ever used. I had problems with 1. lapping, 2. picture framing, 3. poor hiding, 4. poor sheen uniformity, 5. roller marks, 6. foaming, and 7. sagging. I went for the hight cost thinking this is a higher quality paint. It is not. Moreover, asking the staff at Home Depot Thomas Road Phoenix to do something to correct the situation resulted in an answer of: we (Home Depot) will do nothing to help customers with Behr products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised Bought this paint because the one coat guarantee. I was told that my color was covered. Bought a new roller, even though I already had some at home. The employee said it was needed in order to work. Didn't do it at all. You can easily tell that there are white specks underneath the paint. I had already primed before and coverage was still bad. Also, the edging was done by hand and turned out darker than the recommended roller. Definitely going to be looking for a refund.

You better be extremely fast AND efficient with your painting because it is not forgiving. If you try to go over an area even minutes after you apply the paint, it smudges up the whole works. So you have to wait until it's completely dry to put on another coat. No, it doesn't cover in one coat (and we primed it also) and it spread like putty. Don't waste your money and time. It's not efficient and it's slow!

The first time was on a bed frame. That took 2 coats but I did not prime and it was almost bare wood in some areas. The bed came out great! The second was on the wall. I didn't have the time luxury of more than one coat so I went with this. Covered beautifully! It is thick but if I poured small quantities and stirred often it went on smooth. No platter! For me it was worth the money.

We were talked into the Marquee purchase by a sales associate saying the primer feature and the one coat coverage would be well worth the price. We found that it did not provide one coat coverage as promised. My wife and I both painted different walls using a roller. I then painted a wall using a brush. All three walls showed that the "one coat coverage guarantee" was false. We would not recommend this brand of Behr to anyone.
