Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst ceiling paint I have used This has got to be the worst ceiling paint I have used! (and I have used a lot as I was in the painting business at one time) Paint is thick and you would think it has good coverage but I had to go over a white ceiling twice to get an adequate finish. Coverage was terrible with this paint and like some others here have mentioned the result was an uneven finish. Come on Behr, don't make such a bad product! I want a refund. September 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrating and unsatisfactory results Used Behr Premium Plus Interior Flat Ceiling paint (tinted to a delicate off white) to cover a flat ceiling of the same color. This ceiling was clean, in excellent condition and had been painted 10 years ago with Behr Flat paint. We used a good quality 10 mm nap roller on a long handle, working 4' x 4' areas lengthwise. The paint dried almost as fast as it was applied, making it difficult to blend edges or see where we had painted. Result: blotches and streaks!! Knowing that ceilings are usually very dry, we applied a 2nd coat more liberally, going crossways this time. Result: blotches and streaks. Used a 3rd gallon for a 3rd coat, but instead used a short. handle and stood on a ladder. Result: blotches and streaks!!!! Absolute waste of time and money - won't use Behr again. February 4, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great paint Used this paint on a dirty stained ceiling and it worked just fine, no streaks and only applied one coat. Was easy to apply and brightened up the room. I prepared the surface with TSP and applied evenly. Overall a great paint for the price. February 12, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Does NOT cover Do not waste your money on this product. Have put two coats on the ceiling and this STILL does not cover where I used white primer, I am going to have to redo the whole job. The color I purchased was "pure white" April 21, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Uneven coverage I am a great fan of Behr products. As an architect I believe is the best product for your money in the market. Unfortunately, in my current project, I have had to paint the ceiling 5 times due to uneven coverage from this product. Due to my last experience with this ceiling white product, I might select another brand for my next project. May 6, 2014
