    Q:painting exterior door will the temperature change effect this paint

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi boomer, Thank you for writing in and for your interest in Behr! For best results, we recommend applying the paint within50-90˚ F (10-32˚ C). If the paint is applied at a lower/higher temperature than recommended, the paint can become difficult to work with and have performance issues like poor adhesion. I hope this information was helpful. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have. Best of luck with your project! ~Doris

      Q:I have a metal & want to paint it interior to match my decor does the door need to be primed & will this paint scratch/
      by|Jan 4, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Mrst, For best results, we recommend priming bare metal with Behr Multi-Surface Stain-Blocking Primer. The paint should not scratch off if it's properly adhered. Please keep in mind that the paint film may remain a bit fragile for the first four weeks until it cures entirely. ~Doris

        Q:Can I paint the metal home awnings

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Jax, thank you for writing in with your question. Yes, you can paint the metal awnings with this product. The surface should be sound, clean, and scuff sanded or etched to promote adhesion. For best results, we also recommend priming with the Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer No. 436. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

          This is a fire engine / stop sign kind of red. There don't seem to be any pictures of it on HD website. Rolled well on galvanized fence panels (4 guage welded wired); brushed well on galvanized hardware (latches, etc.). Does best with two thin coats, and definitely use above 50F to avoid/minimize blobs. Looks great, better for my application than spray DTM paints. Does require occasional mixing if using it over a several days (which I had to do--about 2 hours to handle/turn over to paint other side; and overnight before 2nd coat). I also used Behr DTM BLACK for two big posts that support architectural sails (shades)...4" roller and trim brush work great and paint stays intact. No sign of rust/weathering (although the irrigation system does stain them a bit...but that's not the fault of the paint).

            The product is titled "Direct-to-Metal", but the instructions tell you that the metal surface has to be primed. That is just plain fraud and gross misrepresentation.

            Hello NOTmulch,
            Thanks for taking the time to review our Direct to Metal Interior Exterior Paint. I can assure you it’s not our intention to misguide our customers in any way and I’d like to clarify. We recommend using the first coat of this same product as a primer directly to the metal surface. There is no need for an additional primer metal surfaces. For further assistance, please feel free to reach out directly to our customer care team. We’d love to help! Best, Roxana N. Behr

                This is a great paint if you're trying to paint an outdoor iron fence. It dries fast so you'd want to leave the paint in a shady area or use a sprayer. If you leave it in the sun too long, you may end up with chunks in your paint. I would recommend this product.
