Rated 1 out of 5Â by rms59 Worst Behr paint you can buy
First, I have purchased Behr indoor paints with primer and have had excellent results. I've painted all my rooms with one coat even going over a brown wall with green. It's awesome paint and Consumer Reports had rated it #1 and they were correct.
With that said, I can't recommend this exterior paint simply because of it's poor density. I bought this paint to cover a white garage door that had become slightly faded after years of weathering. This was a steel door that came baked white. This Behr paint (white) required two coats to cover the old white and I can still see the old white in some areas.
I don't know what else to recommend but this paint is awful.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jimmy Always use Behr paint
Have used Behr interior paint in past. Used their exterior paint this time. Excellent coverage, color, & sheen. Only needed 1 coat on Hardy Board siding. Easy putting on & easy clean-up. Have used other paint brands over past 40 years, but this has to be the best brand I have used. May cost a little more, but well worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Greg Average at best
I chose this paint because it was paint and primer in one thinking that I would need fewer coats. I was woefully wrong. I am painting a new build, so bare wood. Some of the wood is light in color like the studs and trim and some is dark in color, such as the soffits. On the light colored wood, it appeared to go on well at first, but then I got to the dark stuff and it looked like garbage on the first pass. I had to put on a second coat to keep the dark wood from showing through. Then the dark portions were whiter than the other that only had a single coat. In the end I ended up putting 3 coats on everything before it all started to actually look right. For that effort, I could have used the cheaper paint and done a separate primer and top coat. Save your money folks and do it the old fashioned way.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 1mjf1 The BEST Paint ever!
Finished the house and garage, 7-6-13. Excellent outcome, covered in 1 coat, easy clean up, used a brush to cut in and a 4 inch roller on the aluminum siding(blue chaise). I painted the front and side porches with deck & patio paint(autumn leaves), also came out beautiful. See the pictures pls.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KenW Worked very well, good product.
Having decided to repaint my shed I talked with the paint associate at Home Depot in Lapeer Mich. and she recommended the Behr premium plus ultra exterior semi gloss. Its a thicker paint but goes on nice. The color of the paint matched perfectly with the sample card. But what I liked best was that it covered the existing color in one coat. (see pictures) This product worked out very well.
