Rated 5 out of 5Â by gfphoto Excellent deck/porch paint
Last year I worked on replacing our front porch and steps from early spring
to the fall. Lots of rotted wood and the big job I expected it to be. The
porch is 7'x24' and had been painted dreary battleship gray. I decided to
leave the new pine floor natural with just a preservative and polyurethane,
but wanted to paint the steps and hand rail posts (which were pressure
treated wood) white, along with the columns and railings. The cold weather
stopped me from finishing the painting until this spring, but I got the
steps and hand rail posts done. In any case, I wanted to evaluate the paint
in the winter to see how it would stand up to snow and ice. Also to see if
there would be any discoloration from the pressure treated wood. I have a
few details to finish--like caps for the hand rail posts.
The Behr Porch and Deck paint is a pleasure to use. It's thick compared to
a regular indoor wall paint and that helps it stay put on vertical
surfaces. I had very little dripping, and what there was occurred because I
was loading the brush too much. The coverage is excellent--the steps were
already weathered so darker than if the wood had been new and the paint
covered very well. I probably could have gotten away with one coat but
applied two. Cleanup is soap and water and with a brush comb I was able to
get the bristles quite clean without a problem. I used a good quality brush
and would recommend that. Clean it after you're done and don't let the
paint dry on it. Just easier with a good brush.
This winter has been extra cold and we've had several freeze/thaw cycles
with snow and ice and the steps and posts look fine. I know I'll need to
clean the natural finish floor and white steps periodically, but it's worth
it to have the porch looking the way we want. So far the paint looks pretty

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Anamandy Would be nice if it ever dried
Prior to repainting my porch the previous owner had used the Glidden Latex floor paint of which there still was a 1/2 gallon in my basement. Since I don't particularly care for latex I decided to go with acrylic. I scraped and sanded the porch floor and then used the Glidden Gripper acrylic primer, which was wonderful. It dried fast and hard with zero tackiness in 24 hours. I then used this paint. Big mistake. For one, it didn't cover in one coat. Okay. So I have to do the work twice. I waited 24 hours between and the paint was still too tacky to even stand on. So I gave it another day and guess what? It still was too tacky. I chalked it all up to humidity and waited yet another day. Finally I was able to get another coat on, but two days later, after a heavy rain, I checked the porch and where water pours off the eaves of the house onto the stairs the paint has splattered off and the spattered chips had adhered to the porch and my walkway. Terrible product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Cincydoityourselfer Vinyl Floor Is New Again!
I recently painted vinyl flooring in my 1st floor bathroom and garage entry/laundry area. I had two different vinyl floors (bathroom - sheet vinyl; garage entry - vinyl tiles). After prepping floors (sanded w/100 grit sandpaper / deglosser / cleaned with a substitute TSP cleaner), I used a premium primer. Then, I applied two coats of the Behr pure white gloss porch and patio floor paint (drying time was approximately 30 mins. - I waited an hour before applying 2nd coat). The finish is absolutely amazing! I'm now encouraged to paint other tile flooring throughout my house. The project is time-consuming, but in my opinion most cost effective.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Dissappointed Worst porch floor paint
I have a covered 700 sq foot porch that I have painted for the last 25 years with another brand and have had no problems. I thought Behr was a premium brand so chose to try it on my porch this past year. I cleaned, scraped, sanded and primed all bad spots and applied this paint. Within 3 months the paint was peeling in many spots. Some spots it lifted right off and others it looked like it was crackled. I will never use this paint again.

great product that goes on easy and looks great on my 100+ year old neo classic victorian.
east facing the porch and steps are exposed to full sun rain and snow and hangs tough.
