Customer Questions & Answers

can this paint be tinted?

Asked by: joev
Yes it can. Home Depot can color match your sample or they can tint to any of the colors they have on display in the paint department.

can i use on concrete

want to paint parking lines in parking lot.
Asked by: david
Hello david, We appreciate your question. We actually wouldn't recommend any of our coatings, including this one, for use on a parking lot floor. Our products aren't designed to withstand that degree of wear, especially if it's a commercial or high use setting (for example, a business plaza or apartment lot). You might check with Home Depot for another brand's product that would be suitable for your coating needs. Best wishes for your project!

Can this paint be used on the block foundation

Asked by: Cindy
I would think yes. You will want to use a block filler first if the block is bare, and then use this paint as a color coat.

Need Primer?

Do I need to prime the old paint which was a white paint job on the front porch before repainting with the Behr white semi gloss exterior enamel?
Asked by: Anonymous
I just received this paint, and it turns out to be a 2-in-1 (primer is mixed in). If you don't want to use primer, this is a good thing. For me, its not what I was looking for.

5-gal. #790C-1 Irish Mist Semi-Gloss Enamel Exterior Paint is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 318.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Last Purchase of Behr I have had problems with Behr stains before but overlooked them. This semi gloss enamel was the worst paint I have ever used. It shows the brush strokes, does not self level as an enamel should and still showed brush marks after three coats. I used a much cheaper Wal Mart paint on the interior side of the door with very good results

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Yes it's good paint, but not Sherwin Williams at all......... Second coat of Behr Premium Ultra over Behr Marquee, Home Depot's best. Ultra is definitely a two coat paint. Very watery compared to Marquee and especially Sherwin Williams. Not even close to Sherwin Williams in thickness and quality. This is another story of you get what you pay for. Not impressed at all. Don't see how this paint gets such wide praise. I'm going back to Sherwin Williams from now on. P.S. All you have to do is clean a brush or roller with Marquee, Ultra or any Sherwin Williams. 15 seconds and the Ultra brush is clean. About 30 seconds with the Ultra. Take about 8 minutes to clean a Sherwin Williams brush out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Paint w/ Primer Good Paint but should be only paint! I prime before Painting? Guess I will go to a PAINT STORE NOW!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PAINT I'm very happy with the results on my carport I painted using this paint.It feels very thick and I only used half of 5-gallons I purchased. I only put on 1 thick coat as well. It dries really fast and I was able to use a pressure washer to clean up my concrete driveway once I was done.If you do this,be sure to not wait longer than at most a couple of hours. Oh and men ,don't tell your wives it's ok to drop paint on the did,and was wondering if it wouldn't just be easier to paint the rest of the driveway white!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paint Ever! I used this paint to paint my entire new home. We also received a rebate on all the paint we purchased each time. This exterior paint looks great on the shed we did.

Not as thick as some other exterior paints (some of which go on like molasses) but still provided good, one coat coverage. Important to use a high quality brush and a light touch to avoid brush streaks and light spots. Just applied this fall so will need to wait to see how it weathers, my review is based on application and coverage. Bought it to paint a fence and ended up using it on house trim.

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.
