I was testing paint colors for the exterior of our house. I went to HD and had them mix samples of this Behr flat exterior with color Behr MQ5-4 (Classy). I figured I'd paint two sides of the shed with the sample to see if we liked the color. I was pleased this is self priming paint, but I still primed using BM Fresh Start. This paint smells like ammonia but goes on thick and easy. It was a pleasure to paint with (other than the smell) and dried quickly. I was surprised that I had enough sample to do two coats on two sides of the shed. We liked the color so I passed along the color number to our painters (they only use BM paints, but BM can make any color). I went back to HD and had them mix me a gallon of Behr color MQ5-4 as well as a sample at 75% for accents (that means 25% lighter). The painters started on the house with BM while I started painting the rest of the shed with the Behr gallon I purchased. I then stepped back and realized the color from the gallon was completely different from the sample we liked and the BM was different than the Behr gallon AND sample. 3 different colors! Holy cow! I thought I was going crazy! The sample looked more grey, the gallon looked lavender-grey, and the BM matched the swatch perfectly (but I typically don't rely on swatches because they tend not to be accurate). I was floored and the painting crew had already finished 2 sides of the house. The house looked more purple than grey. So I don't know if the issue was this Behr paint base used to make the color or an improperly calibrated machine at my local HD. Either way it ended up being a VERY expensive problem to resolve. For that reason I cannot recommend this product. Too many inconsistencies and a major headache.
Word of advice to any DIYer painting your house... don't be cheap... buy a full gallon and test the color. Then insist your painters use the same brand.

Our home in VA was built in 1728. Accordingly, we've tried to use nothing but premium paints. When it came time to paint this year I decide to try Behr's new premium - Marquee. Big mistake.
Unless we purchased from a bad lot, I found it very difficult to use. It's quite thin for a modern latex paint and spatters very easily. I could not "load" a Purdey 3" brush without it dripping off the brush. While I exaggerate a bit, its body is closer to whitewash than other premium latex paints I've used.
Fortunately, I began at the rear soffit on the third floor and I was less than ten minutes into the painting when I decided that the soffit was the only thing I was going to paint with this stuff.
I can't speak to its durability but the additional cleanup time getting the spatters off our stone made it not worth the time to use.
I'll finish the job with another paint. BTW, I've used other Behr paints with good success.

Used it to paint my house which had not been painted in over 13 years. 2 coats and it was done! WOW!! I was a little worried at first when the color went on purple and not chipotle paste, but it dried the brownish red color we wanted. After 2 years it still looks great and everyone thinks its a new house or don't recognize it. Now it's time to paint my new 24 x 12 shed to match.

Used this product on a wall where water cascades down when it rains - after a rainy reason it still looks like new and the wall has been protected. Cracks in the stucco were covered and are still covered - excellent product.

Behr paint is Great! I've never had to repaint spots with Behr as I have other cheaper paint. Goes on smooth and looks great! Got tons of compliments from my neighbors on how nice paint looks on house too!
