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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bakingmom Excellent coverage.
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by LittleBigHart One coat on bare pine gives white wash look.
Made a picnic table out of rough pine wood planks. Most of the wood pieces were not treated for weather. I sanded and patched and smoothed out as best I could. I then used this paint to protect the wood covering each piece before assembling. One coat gave it more of a white washed look with the knot holes and dark areas still visible. I put a second coat on the tops of the table and benches to give it a cleaner look. It took a good 2 hours to dry well enough to withstand rain. Some pieces I painted too late in the day had spots I had to go over again after it had started to rain unexpectedly. But all in all my first attempt at making a very basic bare bones picnic table came out looking quite polished. We'll see how it does over the winter, but already I'm happy about how easy it keeps clean.The squirrels like to crack open black walnuts on it. So far the black stuff has come right off with just water. Would have been a real mess if I hadn't painted it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pmikejunot Good quality, but expensive.
As stated before, this is a great paint but expensive. In the final analysis, I think it's worth it. It is a great improvement over the Behr Plus exterior paint. Brush application is great, but I haven't tried spraying yet. The satin finish is a true satin after it cures. Overall, I think the $50 per gallon is costly, but worth it.

I bought 2 gallons of this paint, (fresh Crossant and dark crimson), followed all directions and steps for use, and could not be more upset with the results. I was attempting to cover a light tan color, and the dark crimson really showed us how crummy the paint is. Takes multiple coats, leaves roller lines, uneven coating because it dries so quickly. The best part? While pulling up painters tape around edges, it started pulling the paint up! It's so thick, you constantly have to mix it and good luck with a roller, it's a mess. The ironic thing, the fresh Crossant color gave us no isissues! Clean smooth finish, looks great. Maybe they need to adjust their tint formula? Both cans are marquee interior satin, so it must be the tint.

This was my second trial of using the Marquee line of Behr paints. The first time the paint was very thin like the cheapest paint you could find to buy. This time was no different. The Marquee paint is just a little bit thicker than water. Coverage is not like Behr says. I brush painted on white painted wood with this white paint. After 2 coats you could still faintly notice the original white color of the painted fascia. Dip your brush 1/2 inch into the paint and wait 5 minutes for it to stop dripping. I paint houses and this paint is junk for the money. It does dry well and is adhesive but it is not a top of the line quality paint.

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.
