Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I'm a convert! I am a decorative painter and also do residential painting. I have always been a Sherwin Williams devotee. I had a customer, within this last year, who insisted on Behr Ultra for the trim job that I was doing. I told him that I used Sherwin Williams paint. He wouldn't hear of it, so I bought a cream-colored paint that would be going over a dark-gold-colored trim. Normally that would take 2-3 coats, with streaking issues. I was astonished as the first coat went on. I only had to do a light, touch-up coat on the second time around. It leveled beautifully and was easy to work with. Soon after that, my husband and I bought an old Victorian house that needed lots of interior painting. I chose the Behr Ultra because of what happened....I had lots of dark, ugly colors to cover. My house now looks absolutely gorgeous and I am a big advocate of Behr Ultra. There were many years where I hated Behr paint and would not use it because it was thin, streaky and would take multiple coats. No more. It is a completely different product and I can't say enough about it. It is also very scrubbable and looks like velvet in my gorgeous Victorian. LOVE IT! October 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One gallon covered 225 SF with two coats I painted over light green ceiling and two coats were required and I am happy with the result. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product! Painting ceilings are a bummer, so when I do paint them, I want it to be right. I have used other ceiling paints that fail to cover spots and end up dripping and spattering everywhere (once even on my contact lens). This stuff does none of that. It easily covers spots (even bad spots) and never drips on me. Two coats of this stuff and whatever is behind it, is long forgotten. Great product. I don't use anything else on ceilings. One thing to consider when ordering this product: It doesn't cover as much area as cheap paint, so make sure you get enough. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy To Apply Ok, this is advertised as a one coat cover-all miracle. After painting 3 rooms covering over 1) other strong colors 2) some white walls and some areas of new drywall) drywall seams I give it an "excellent" (one coat covers it all) for coverage over prior painted surfaces. Where I painted over new drywall areas it needed 2 coats and if I were to paint these areas again I would use a good primer first then apply this paint. This paint is quite thick which I think helps it cover so well. It is easy to apply and easy to clean up. For any future painting I will pay the little extra that this paint costs. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paint is great Smell is minimal. Spatter is reduced and it covers colors well. Well worth buying better paint. January 6, 2015
