Customer Questions & Answers

What is the difference in the two Berh paint products?

BEHR Premium Plus Ultra 5-gal. Flat Enamel Interior Paint is more expensive than the BEHR Premium . Ultra Flat Zero VOC Interior Paint by 30 or so $ for 5 gal. I see that the VOC has less odor that seems like it should be the more costly of the two. And the coverage appears to be the same and both are self priming so I wonder what is the difference? Can both be tinted? is there a difference in the number of coats needed?
Asked by: Anonymous
I think premium plus is not available in flat interior. Sure they can both be tinted. Im not sure but the it seams like premium has more solid bodies to it and is a little thicker. Both work great.

can this paint have color added or can you only get it in ultra white?

Asked by: Anonymous
Color can be added but buyers beware-- some Home Depots will not take back or refund custom paint. You need to find out if the warranty hold after adding colors also.

How bad is the odor?

I live in Florida and will probably have 2 first floor rooms painted in hot months (May-June). Obviously I have a/c along with overhead fans but I'm concerned about getting headaches and not being able sleep if there's a strong odor. Thanks!
Asked by: Soxfan1
It depends on how much area you are painting. Example just the walls in one room? The room you sleep in? I just painted 1/2 of my house inside spraying walls and ceilings done by 2pm. Odor by 11pm still there by I wouldn't want to sleep in a new painted room. Ok by the next day.

will this work on pvc and plastic

will this work on pvc and plastic
Asked by: pvc
Hello, Thank you for your interest in our products. We would not recommend applying our paint directly over pvc or plastic. We suggest using a separate primer first that will adhere to pvc or plastic before using our paint. I'd recommend our sisters company's primer, Kilz Adhesion. Best regards, Kevin

1-gal. #P240-1 Cheese Powder Flat Interior Paint is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 284.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I always paint was paint First time trying this particular level of paint. It was only .08 per gallon higher than my first choice. Now I'm glad that they were out of stock of the cheaper base!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product We have always had excellent results with the Behr paints. Therefore, when we decided to repaint the walls in the living room in our condo, we went with Behr. The results were excellent. One coat covered without any problem. The walls were painted using Behr paint 5 years ago, they still looked good, but we were looking to change color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I use BEHR all of the time. There have been a couple of instances, for convenience or price; that I have used other brands. I always regret it immediately. The other paints just run and are watery. One of my most recent projects was painting my sons room a dark gray/blue. It was originally a light beige. It took one coat and one can of paint for a 12x15 room. Love this paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint We've painted every room in our house with Behr Premium Plus Interior Flat and have been so happy with the results. The coverage is outstanding. Cleanup is a breeze. The colors are rich and true. Purchased on the recommendation of Consumer Reports, and it has lived up to its rating. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never pay more I have been using Behr Premium Plus flat paint on every wall in the last two houses I have owned and updated. I can see no reason to pay more for paint. This paint goes on well, has good coverage, and cleans up easily. The breadth of color choices is more than you would ever need. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb coverage w/ just one coat I own / manage 11 apartments and I use Behr Premium Plus Interior Flat to paint all areas in the apartments, except for the kitchen & bath where I use a satin sheen. Having used other cheaper paint brands, I found that my time is worth money, so it is better to go w/ the more expensive Behr paint and get the job done in one coat. With cheaper paints I would have to put a 2nd coat and so any savings in the cost of the paint was burned w/ extra man hours of effort. I know that this product is highly rated by Consumer Reports and I have verified there rating through many years of experience. I would highly recommend this product to others. The only thing I caution about is make sure you have prepared your walls. You must remove any grease or oil based marks, such as colored markers, on them before painting. Also, if you have build up smoke deposits on the walls you are going to have to scrub the walls & apply a good primer to lock those odors in. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I am by no means a pro painter. This flat paint is super forgiving and works well to cover any scratches. It blends right in! We just bought a house and repainted the entire interior and exterior with BEHR paint. Def buy this paint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Premium Paint The paint was of good quality and no thickening on the bottom of the can. The color was well blended and applying the paint was easy, smooth and even without the need to retouch. Great paint quality without a premium price!
