So far I am very happy with the paint.
Behr Marquee exterior seemed to fit all my needs. I didn't want to have to paint again every few years because of chipping, chalking or color fade. Behr promises that Marquee was made to last.
I used it for first for the trim on my shed and since I'm happy with the result will also use it for the trim of the house.
It covered very well on wood paint sprayer, brush, or paint roller.
I was also impressed that a paint that coats with such protection could have such easy clean up. warm water and elbow grease was all it took
I'm confident by my experience with Behr Marquee that is will do what it promises.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by farmgirl95602 Better than the name brand stain blocking paint
When we bought the house, the eaves were still a turquoise color. We bought some "used the wrong base to mix the color" paint cheap because it was going to take many coats of medium priced paint to cover that turquoise (4 to be specific). When I had new roofing put on, they restructured part of the roof leaving some of the old turquoise showing. I used a well known brand name stain blocker paint to cover the turquoise before I paint the eaves. I didn't cover, you can see the lines in the before pictures. While I was doing the fascia boards in the Jet White, I put some of it on the spots of turquoise that still showed through the stain blocker. It covered, see after photos.
This paint is easy to apply, makes a nice straight line without skipping and having to go back over that spot again. Thick enough to not drip, unless you are me, but I really didn't drip much. It covers very well, the roofers got a little of the black tar color on a couple of spots, and it covered them with no problem. The new gutter, without washing with acid covered in 2 coats. I used 1/2 gallon to do all the fascia on an 1800 sq ft house.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Smooth application, good coverage with one coat.
This Flat paint finish is the third of 3 finishes I've used in Jet White. It mixes thick like a milkshake.
Jet White is my choice because it looks naturally clean and bright. It helps that the Home Depot Paint Department told me they could mix part of my stockpile to another color when I made up my mind about color.
This is a versatile color to keep in your personal stockpile, if you want to reserve the right to change your mind ladies!
The project I chose to test it on is a sun baked back wall of an aging children's playhouse. The wall was replaced 2 years ago. The paint fades, the wood rots, the bugs attack this wall every year.
I liked the consistency of the Flat finish. It applied smoothly and quickly over the dry plywood. It didn't soak into the wall like a cheap paint. The dried results are adequate enough to use one coat.
This flat exterior paint will be used on exterior wood house panels. The coverage is good on this dry plywood. I expect the panels to be finished quickly.
A better features of Marquee exterior paint is, it dries quickly. That also makes it harder to clean.
Every Xmas I pick a room to paint and a premium paint to complete the task. I recommend the Behr Marquee, despite a high price, for coverage and ease of use.

I had recently painted my house with the BERH MARQUEE Paint and wanted to paint the trim white, a different color from the house. Since I had such a great experience with this product, I chose to stay with it for the trim. This product has stain-blocking with a primer included, fade resistant and also resists dirt. Goes on very clean and crisp, no streaking. I would highly recommend the BERH MARQUEE Products.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LittleBigHart Not white or grey, very light beige.
The color is very light tan. Notebook paper and a real eggshell are whiter. A standard file folder is darker beige. It is slightly lighter when dry than mozzarella cheese. I have never seen a Jet this color before. I used this to paint an old wooden fence bordering a paver block patio with brown and charcoal pavers with marble rock borders. It looks fine with these colors including the white marble rock which has flecks of greys and beiges. The paint covered the lightly sanded wood fence with one coat, dried to touch after one and a half hours, and held up just fine to the next day's heavy rain shower. I did not have to prime. I can not speak to how long coat will last as I have just painted over the holiday weekend, but will try to update review if I discover a problem. This paint is expensive but if lasts as long as advertised should be worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HDKevin Excellent coverage and penetration
I used this paint to color my wood ceiling in my garage. I sprayed the product with a paint sprayer and even with a small amount of latex additive it had excellent coverage. The wood was very dry but still managed to cover well. There is a claim that the paint is rain resistant after 60 minutes and at the 60 minute mark I sprayed with the hose and did not see any paint run off or any difference in color or sheen afterwards.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PJCC Semi Gloss is thin, runny, Gloss is low shine & nice.
I opened this next to a can of Jet White Satin. I immediately wondered why it was so runny compared to the Satin but I haven't used Semi-Gloss very often.
I was scared off the Semi Gloss because of negative opinions, from online articles to paint sellers, about using it on the outside of a house here. The wood trim absorbed this quickly.
I don't see a high gloss. I would'nt use it on stucco, I like a thicker coverage.
It looks easier to clean, I like the slight sheen. I recommend it for wood trim outside and patio wood panels. Also, it's nice on the metal window trim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bakingmom Excellent Coverage
Behr Marquee Semigloss is a great paint. It has a low odor which is not that noticeable when painting outdoors. It cleans up easily, with water when wet. The first picture shows one coat of Behr Marquee jet white semigloss over primed and unprimed cedar siding. The top plank is painted over unprimed, rough cedar and the planks beneath have been primed. The coverage is excellent on both. The second picture is the same paint over primed cedar siding. It is beautiful and maintains a soft glow. The jet white is also a beautiful, creamy color. It makes the old house look bright and new!
