Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NCBUCKEYE Painted a small bedroom (10'x13) and 1 gallon only covered approximately 75% of the room. It did a great job of 1 coat coverage, but the Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint with satin finish is very thick and required constant reloading on high quality Wooster rollers and brushes. When I went back to Home Depot for a 2nd gallon and I spoke to the gentleman behind the paint counter about my displeasure in the area coverage and he just shrugged his shoulders. Not a good experience at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeliriousD Great paint for the price.
Regardless of the color you choose (because if it's too dark or too light, that's really your own fault) - the color I bought with this paint was very accurate and it went on the wall smoothly. I did need two coats, but barely. Very happy with this paint and will buy again. Note: In addition to this paint, buying good painting brushes also helps. You get what you pay for. I purchased really good brushes so I'm sure that helped as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lauriew Excellent coverage!
Love this paint! I only used 2 1/2 gallons for what took 3-4 the last time I painted the same space. It covered a dark red orange wall with one good coat of the light green gray I used. My only problem is that I bought one gallon too much.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Thequeen Not impressed
I want to start out by saying I have always bought Behr paint because it covers so well. This type of Behr paint is the medium priced paint. I thought the coverage was average. Usually one gallon was enough to do a project. This time I will have to go back to complete my project. Even since Behr went to the Marquee brand, I don't think there other brands are as good. Might be switching to another brand after this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by swtjen01 Excellent paint! Buy floetrol to add to your paint.
This is excellent paint. I painted my daughters room and it looks great. My strong suggestion is that you buy Floetrol to add to the paint. It eliminates brush and/or roller marks and to me it seems to even out the paint application. It will also help with some of the issues I read where people complained that the paint "lifted" back onto the roller or had roller marks. The actual issue is painting technique and/or cheap roller covers. Don't cheap out on the rollers and make sure you load enough paint..
REASONS WHY PAINT "LIFTS" WHEN ROLLING OR SHOWS ROLLER MARKS
(1) Rolling back over the freshly applied paint after it has had enough time to start to "set up". If you're going to roll over a freshly applied film, do so while the paint is still wet - not after it's had a few (or several) minutes to dry.
(2) If you can see the product "lifting" from the surface as you roll over it (and not because of what's described in #1), that is a tell-tale sign of a cheap roller cover.
If you buy floetrol and a good roller cover you will be pleased with the outcome. The paint results will look solid and uniform. I can speak from experience because initially every time I tried to paint it always looked awful and I had all but given up on ever painting again; then I received some advice from a friend who paints professionally. I hope this will help someone else out too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by XavierBasketballFan So very pleased with Behr paint
I now only use Behr paint. Paint + primer seems to be the standard in the industry now and I would not paint any other way. I used this to paint a bathroom we have been remodeling. We had new drywall installed so I primed it with new wallboard primer, then used this product in a custom color the associate mixed for me - little known fact - at Home Depot the paint associates have a data base of competitive colors - so if you see a color chip in another brand they can match it. This paint covered in one coat. I had to do a couple little touch ups around the ceiling edge where I cut in but otherwise on coat gave me a very professional finish. There was an area that was not new drywall that had been painted a dark green previously where I put two coats so if you are trying to cover a dark or deep color you may need two.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jan6 Have they changed the formula?
We painted ourfamily room and small hallway today the hall and a few walls were a dark red(previous homeowner choice) i primed thosse walls as instructed it took 1 3/4 gallons for1 coat. it went on thin and didn't go as far as ive experienced with this paint. The other walls were white.I've painted abright green room with a light gray with 1 coat, a medium blue room with a light medium neutral in 1 coat. This paint is not the same. I've used ptemium plus ultra for years with success. I guess i need to buy a different brand from now on.
