I had no idea what type of paint I needed to purchase, thank God there were people to assist. This paint came out great on the walls with the color I chose. Turns out that I didn't need the expensive stain blocking option since my walls were a flat white (according to my painter) regardless I still prefer this, for the extra cost.

I purchased this to paint small closet. This product is very thick and it drips....took three coats of paint for adequate coverage. I am not a novice painter but found this to be difficult to work with.

I did my research on paints and some were 60 to 70 dollars a gallon at the paint stores but consumer reports rated behr ultra the best overall. I have to say I was surprised it covered the darker color in one coat. I would highly recommend this paint at 34 dollars a gallon you can't beat it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thatvintagechick Great paint is excellent with a little help
Our 1924 Craftsman has loads of woodwork, most of which was either painted an extremely dark green or extremely banged up, dented, chipped or had been chewed and deeply scratched up by the former owners dogs. Usually both.
I've never painted damaged woodwork on this level, so I researched until I could research no more and dove in. Mud room was the worst, so why not start there? If I suck at this, better to find out there than on the mantles or staircases, right? Right.
Many buckets of TSP, a big ol tub of wood filler, tons of sandpaper, 123 primer, caulk up the wazoo, 1 week and this nifty paint and I am so proud of myself! No one cares about a mud room, except for me. I keep finding reasons to do things in there, to bask in its glory. Husband also enjoys it, but not like I do.
Here's what I've found -
You HAVE TO properly prep.
Clean your surface! TSP or a TSP alternative.
If you're painting over oil based paint, you need to sand. Liquid sander (I've used it on outdoor furniture, it worked), whatever, but your old surface needs a tooth. Even if your primer says you don't have to. Just do it.
Prime. 123 worked really well for me to cover the very dark green, 2 coats. I know this Bher paint says the primer is built in, but the first coat is ment to be a "primer coat" and you'll STILL need two more coats to cover after a primer coat, like most paint. Not for coverage even, but durability. So save some money and use primer first.
This paint is pretty thick, and it sets FAST so if you're painting near an area where you get a breeze, like an open window, or if you aren't a fast painter (like me!) add Floetrol. It's inexpensive and helps the paint lay so much better. I found that less is more with it, so go a little light, you can always add more.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joepainter bad coverage
I had to use 3 to 4 coats of this expensive paint to cover a white wall with a light yellow color satisfactorily. I'm no rookie at painting and used different brands. I'll not be using this brand again. I gave it two stars because it had no odor and the finish sheen was good. But I have better things to do then to paint a wall over and over to make it look good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kovich14 Good quality paint
This paint went on easily and uniformly and to my surprise, only required one coat. Once dried, it didn't retain any roller or brush marks and the color is vibrant. Great quality paint. Will use again.

This paint goes on well and covers in two coats. But the odor is more intense now than when I last bought it. A Home Depot employee said they’re aware of this issue and “are working on it.” Fumes are a concern, especially when I’m painting during a New England winter and open windows aren’t an option.
Behr has always been my go-to paint but, for now, I think I’ll pass on buying this paint again.
