Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 248 reviewers.
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 Great Coverage In store purchase, great color, no overwhelming smell. Product goes on well, has great coverage-has the primer and paint together. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is very thick-at first it was hard to work with but as I worked on the ceilings in each room I got "my groove" working with it. I would purchase again.

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 2.0 out of 5.0 by Thick - Difficult to Apply Paint is too thick. While the quality is good, it is difficult to use it. Would not recommend the product. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, could be better Excellent bright flat white for ceilings. Use for a remodel with mixed prepainted and new primed/sealed sheetrock ceiling. Took three coats to get a perfect flat where some of the primed/sealed sheet rock, tape area differences in the ceiling didn't show. Still happy with the product. June 9, 2015
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 Really good ceiling paint This paint is like pudding, and that is a good thing. The thickness helps to mitigate drips and keeps drops from flying off the roller when you roll a little fast. Adhered well and covered well. We will probably only need one coat (bought the paint and painted the kitchen ceiling tonight, we'll have to see how it looks in the morning but I only expect it to get better as it dries). It is nearly half again as much as the "regular" ceiling paint so 4 stars on value but still worth it. May 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by use nothing but this paint for ceilings this brand of paint is the only way to go it may cost more but its truly worth it June 9, 2015
