Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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 1.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 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
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fresh, Clean Ceiling The ceiling is fresh, clean and new again with Behr Premium Plus ceiling paint. It was very easy to paint with a small stepladder (two steps) and a paint roller. A pole extension could be easily added for taller or cathedral ceilings. The paint adheres beautifully and there were no drips or splattering whatsoever. I did mask off the light fixtures and the beige colored walls with blue painters tape prior to painting to prevent the roller from transferring paint. No face mask is necessary because there is zero odor. Dries quickly. January 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to apply~Beautiful Coverage! My ceilings had water stains and other imperfections so they needed to be painted.I had already used a stain blocker/primer and let it sit for about a month. The directions on the BEHR ceiling paint, do say to use one and I believe this is very important. I have included a couple of pictures of before and after using BEHR ceiling paint. As you can see, the coverage is beautiful. I used two coats. I am so happy with the results. There was no splatter, the paint went on easy, very easy to work with; you could easily distinguish wet and dry, and the can covered the amount of square feet it says it will. I still have to do my entry/hallway and my kitchen but I was so excited and pleased with the way my living room ceiling came out, I had to write this review right away. I have to admit I was aprehensive about painting my ceiling, worried about how it would come out and contemplated hiring someone but I have to say, I don't think a professional could have done a better job. I highly recommend this product and will just say, follow the directions on the can and take your time. There were alot of flaws in my living room ceiling, the previous owner probably had some kind of sound bar etc attached to the ceiling and it looked like someone just ripped it down; (besides water stains etc.) I had to fill in and sand that spot. You could see the flaws after the stain blocker/primer was applied. You cannot see a trace of them now that it is painted with the BEHR ceiling paint. I am so so happy with the end result.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smooth The ceilings in my older home needed some sprucing up. The previous owner had done a pretty uneven paint job. Since I hate painting ceiling, I needed a product that would go one smooth in one coat, not drip, stink, and need to be easy to clean up. I figured I couldn't go wrong with Behr. This product was just the thing. I didn't even need to stir it. It came ready to rock. This paint has a 1 hour dry time, 2 hour re-coat time, low odor, low VOC, in fact it barely had any scent at all. It also claims to be splatter resistant, and maintain ceiling acoustic properties. It's also supposed to minimize glare, and hide imperfections. I tested it out in my bathroom where the ceilings are pretty grotesque. Another positive about this paint is that it is mildew resistant. You can also tint it to light colors if you want. Un-tinted it's very bright white. I might tint mine to match the more off white on the ceilings. Otherwise it dries to a clean uniform finish. I found that it covered the old paint in the bathroom with with one coat. Goes on easy and spreads out evenly, you don't have to fight with it or reapply every few sweeps. Really takes some of the pain out of painting ceilings. Which is a huge plus! And, you don't have to deal with paint nauseating paint fumes either. This is a huge step up from the cheap stuff, and worth it. Only time will tell how durable and mildew resistant this paint really is. January 2, 2014
