Grabbed my Purdy brush to test the Jet White Satin Paint on a DIY Children's Alpine Playhouse. It's over ten years old. Tearing it down is on a list of my to-do's. If a fresh coat of paint can extend the life of our playhouse, I can cross that off this year's list.
The house front was washed. It only took a few minutes to paint the house and door centers with this thick Jet White paint. The door and window trim was painted with Jet White Semi Gloss.
The Floral wood panel on the door is from an architecture graveyard. It was cracked. The Satin covered the cracks in one coat, although it was already white.
Having only viewed the paint color chip, I thought it would be less white. It matched the trim color on our house, that's vanilla white.
Coverage was sufficient to cover cracks in aged wood.
It was searing, I was dehydrated, got lightheaded amd dropped some paint on the walkway. It dries very fast. I don't consider it an easy clean up paint because of that.
I won't paint our house this time of the year because of daily afternoon rains. This dries fast enough for short projects like the playhouse.
It will take a year for me to see if this lives up to the advanced fade performance claim. I'm looking forward to using it on the house when daily rains let up!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by soldbydon Nice finish quality but some issues
The finish quality of this paint and ease of application are excellent; the down side is that the color - jet white - is slightly creamy/pinky in color so the paint does not exactly match either aluminum or white vinyl trim on some homes (unlike another brand I am used to using). As the paint dries some of the color difference disappears. Not recommended for indoor use - this paint has a strong ammonia odor to it during application. I recommend that the user test a sample of it on his home to make sure he will be pleased with the results. I own multiple properties and have found that there are other brands of exterior paint that do not have these drawbacks.

I hired painters for the first time and asked them to use Behr Marquee paints that I chose for the exterior of my house. They used Taupe Tease for the main color and I absolutely love it!

Behr Marquee Jet White Satin Enamel. is beautiful paint. It is a soft, cream color. It has excellent coverage and easy clean up. There was hardly any dripping at all, when I was painting with it, and barely noticeable odor. It glides over really rough siding easily and looks beautiful when dry.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nikko Disappointing: stick w/Behr Ultra
I've used Marquee interior paints extensively and generally been pleased with the results. I had high exectations of the exterior version, particularly given its price and positioning as Behr's premium paint. I knew there was no claim of one-coat coverage (which frankly I've seldom gotten from their interior paints). What I didn't expect at all was needing at LEAST three coats on top of a high-quality primer coat. Initially I used a top-of-the-line brush, then tried 1/2" and longer nap rollers. Nothing helped. I switched to a primer intended for peeling paint (w/especially good adhesion properties). Useless. So were four coats of straight Marquee over scraped wood siding/trim. I finally gave up and switched back to the exterior Behr, which did a fine job and put the Marquee to shame. Possibly i got a defective batch of Marquee, but their quality control is ordinarily excellent. I don't understand how Home Depot could promote such a substandard product, let alone charge this much for it. On the basis of my experience, I strongly recommend avoiding exterior Marquee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Suz242 Best Paint EVER
This is the best paint for every job. We painted out bedroom with the Marquee and then painted out kitchen. It covers the best ever, one coat, even over darker paint. It applies easily and looks great. The color is true to the sample.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wdwman9 Great exterior paint
We used the Behr Marquee exterior paint on our rough sawn cedar house that had not been painted in a very long time.
The coverage was excellent even on dry rough wood. The surface after two coats was amazing and many neighbors have complemented our house. Our painter, who only used this paint because we requested it, said he is now a firm believer and will switch from the brand he has used for years.
