Asked by: wirenut
Dear wirenut, Thank you very much for your question. BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Exterior Semi-Gloss paint should be applied when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F. If you have concerns about going into colder months and needing to paint in lower temperatures, you might want to consider choosing BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Exterior Paint & Primer in One. The product can be applied when air and surface temperatures are between 35°-90°F. Thank you.

Can this product be used on azek trim boards?

Asked by: Anonymous
Dear Paul, Thank you very much for your question. BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Exterior Semi-Gloss Paint is not formulated to stick to Azek trim boards. This plastic trim is extremely smooth and hard and very challenging for paint adhesion. Our recommendation is to first prime with BEHR PREMIUM PLUS Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer No. 436. This primer will provide the necessary adhesion to PVC. Then you can topcoat with BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® Exterior Semi-Gloss Paint. Please be sure the Azek trim boards are properly cleaned before applying the primer. See the back label instructions for proper preparation.

Have brown shutters that I want to re-paint using a darker brown.Also have a replacement shutter that is black and will repaint brown. Need primer?

Asked by: Anonymous
Hi RMB, There are many different types of primers including specialty primers formulated for specific purposes. Primers are most often used for the following reasons: 1) Blocking Stains: Covering stains with coat of paint will not prevent the stain from eventually bleeding through the paint film and reappearing at the surface. Primers with stain blocking properties such as Behr Exterior Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer #436 will "lock in" the stain in the primer coat so it will not bleed through the paint film. 2) Sealing Porous Surfaces: Porous surfaces will absorb paint, making the final finish look uneven and blotchy (and possibly requires you to use more paint!) Sealing the surface with a primer first will help promote a smooth and even surface. 3) Promoting Adhesion to Surfaces: It is difficult for paint to adhere to some surfaces, such as glossy surfaces and metals. Primers work like glue, sticking the paint film to the surface. 4) Over Patch and Repair: If you have a patched area, chances are you are applying paint over two very different materials each with different porosity. (For instance, patching compound may be denser than the surrounding wood). A coat of primer over these different materials seals the surface and provides a nice, even base for a coat of paint. 5) Changing Color: In some cases, using a tinted primer will save you coats of paint when making a drastic color change. "Drastic" color changes could be light to dark or dark to light or from one hue to another hue. If you want to save the time and effort of using a primer, we recommend Behr Premium Plus Ultra Paint and Primer in One. It has been specifically formulated to block stains, seal porous surfaces and promote adhesion to properly prepared surfaces without the need for a separate primer product. Thank you for the inquiry!

Customer Reviews

1-gal. Medium Base Semi-Gloss Enamel Exterior Paint is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased BEHR PREMIUM PLUS exterior semi-gloss enamel to paint my front door. The paint is very thick. So much so that the stirrer will stand straight up in the can even after the paint was shaken at the store and stirred constantly while I was applying it to the door. After several coats and sanding in between the finish is blotchy, shiny in spots and flat in others and you can see every brush stroke.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Behr no customer loyalty Have bought over 12 gallons in the past 5 years, paint is good, but has faded from sun. Behr customer service lousy. Sent in for rebate and didn't have reading glasses to read print. Rebate ended on a Sunday, yet home depot ad didn't end till Wednesday. Bought early morning on Monday, 8 hrs late for rebate, sent in anyway, and they didn't honor it. Poor customer loyalty relations, will buy something different next time. Also paint match was darker, so waste of money. Just wanted to paint bottom panel of garage door, doesn't match. Only bought at time, because of rebate, misleading, and poor customer service, even kept my reciept.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint I have ever used Our house is 42 years old and has cedar siding trim with brick. The cedar was beginning to deteriorate and I didn't think it would take another winter, but last spring (April 2013) I tried Behr Premium Plus Semi Gloss. It went on very easily and looked beautiful, but the real test was this last winter (2013/2014) which was one of the worst in history with lots of below zero cold and snow. My cedar siding still looks exactly like it did last spring when I put it on. I also painted deck railings with it and they look great too... even after that horrible winter. I LOVE it! I will never buy anything but Behr in the future for both interior and exterior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Paint We buy Behr paint all the time. We have used this exterior paint for many purposes on our property over the years. It lasts really well and we buy this even when there is another paint that is cheaper. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong Color for Front Door I am painting a new front door. The first coat of paint went on smoothly, but the door appeared bright pink (I had chosen a dark red color). After the second coat, it is still a pinkish color but a little darker, but still not the color that I chose.. I am waiting for spring time to put on a 3rd coat. I didn't know that I would have to put so many coats of paint on this door. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I painted my house 5 years ago and used this semi-gloss for all of the trim. It went on easy and covered in one coat. Even after 5 years of Michigan weather I can still touch it up and the sheen and color still match. I have had to replace some trim boards and window sills due to issues with the materials installed by the builder years ago and the paint matches perfectly. I have never had this good of a product on the exterior of a house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I was anxious about painting the outside trim and door of my house. Even though this paint was expensive, I bought one gallon to give it a try. This paint is AMAZING!!!! It covered up small cracks, blemishes and dried with the look of brand new. Coverage was ample, as I only need one coat on most areas. What a time saver!! And a bonus was that clean-up was a cinch -- simply use water. It has been six months since I used the paint, and everything looks great, especially my front door. I can't think of one bad thing to say about this paint.
