The Behr Dynasty paint RUNS and so should you!
I've been using Behr paint for many years. Thought I'd give the dynasty a try. Half way through the 2nd wall, I turned to look at the 1st wall and the paint was running and sliding down the wall! Now I'll have to let it dry and sand to start over. Run!
Response from BehrOct 12, 2021
Hi Laura, thank you for writing in. I'm so sorry to hear our Dynasty Eggshell was running and sliding down your wall. It's important to lightly saturate your application tool, using a 3/8 - 1/2" synthetic nap roller or a high-quality nylon/polyester brush. For any excess product while the coating is still wet, immediately brush or roll it out to distribute the paint evenly. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist. We look forward to hearing from you. -Michael Behr
    Returned to store for refund
    I am reviewing Behr Ultra Scuff Defense in Crisp Linen in eggshell. I worried there were going to be issues with this paint the minute I started to cut in at the baseboard. I’d apply some paint and then, when I moved to another section and tried to feather it into the edge of the first section, the first paint acted like it had already dried and was pulling into streaks and furrows. And so on down the baseboard. When I started to use a roller, it continued to streak and furrow and clump. My wall looks textured at this point. The paint was applied over Kilz primer which was perfectly smooth and dry. This was probably the 25th room I’ve painted in my life so I’m not new to painting. I cut my losses short and went back to Home Depot. The clerk suggested adding Floetrel to the paint; why should I buy a can of paint that I’m using under ordinary conditions to which I then have to add Floetrel? I am now faced with waiting for the paint to thoroughly dry so I can hopefully sand it smooth to start over again. This time, I will use Benjamin Moore paint. The only reason I gave the Behr paint a try is that my local BM provider is closed on Sunday.
    Response from BehrDec 4, 2020
    Hi NA3905 - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint dried too fast, causing streaks and clumps on your walls! To fix the finish, I recommend lightly sanding down the unwanted texture, wiping the area clean to move the sanding dust, then reapplying the paint when the air and surface temperatures are within the recommend range on the label. If the paint continues to dry too quickly, up to 4 ounces of water per gallon can be added to slow the dry time down and allow the paint to level out. For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help. - Sara Behr
      Not worth the money!
      purchased 4 gallons to repaint bathroom that was previously painted a lighter color. Wanted to use same paint/color for attached bedroom and wanted a once and done. Not! Needed to hit the bathroom with 2 coats for consistency in color. Don't know what I'm gonna do with the other 3 gallons but I'm not using it for the much bigger bedroom. Very unhappy with quality. I've used Behr before in my kitchen and bath with no issues. Would not use this again.

        Behr Marquee
        Remodeling my bathroom and decided to use Behr Marquee because we wanted a good paint. 2 coats later you can still see the other color slightly under 2 coats of this stuff. Not just one coat but two coats! I will never buy Behr Marquee again.

          Shiny! Great appearance on a high traffic door. Quick, easy application.
          The bedroom door takes more abuse than any door in the household. I come and go with cat food, while they paw at the door. I hand carry water to the shower, spilling it whilst turning the door handle. The frames were never painted well, not only are they dirty but chipped. The door also has the moniker as the worst bedroom door and lock ever. it had to be kicked in once. One coat covered stains, prints and nicks in the door, while the cat pawed the other side ready to pounce on the newly painted door. The paint dried quickly. The frame truly needs a 2nd coat, but I don't believe they used primer to paint it the first time. Excellent coverage, easy to use. It sits across from a door I painted with an eggshell paint, the semi-gloss is more practical for a high traffic door. As a non-smoker, having lived in a household with a smoker, the white clean appearance of the Marquee Linen is exactly what I wanted.

          Great primer and paint. Glides on so smooth. Fantastic linen, white color.
            Found my Go To paint
            I bought 5 gallons in the Halation gray to paint my new house. I’m so glad I spent more for the 1 coat coverage. It truly only needed one coat with some minor touch ups. It dried evenly and the color is perfect. I will be using Behr from not on.

                          Works well over a good primer
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought a light color to repaint a bedroom that had been pained a very dark color. Using a good primer made the marquee a one coat ( I was under no illusion that the light color would cover the dark with one coat. This is wonderful paint, rolls easily and looks gorgeous! I only choose Behr paint for every painting project, It is by far superior to the competition!

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] One coat coverage is superb! Would not use any other paint until Dynasty came along! Having a animal rescue, I need fast one coat, stain sealing, rapid drying, easy cleaning and scrubbing, durable paint. Marquee is it! Anxious to try Dynasty now.

                                    BEHR MARQUEE INTERIOR EGGSHELL ENAMEL.
                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My name is John my Hodges and I'm the owner of Southern Boy's Painting & Home Services. I went to a customers house to give them an estimate on an interior paint job. They told me that the other 2 men told them it would take 2 coats to cover repainting there living room. I said if you trust me and I'm giving you my 2 year guarantee on the paint that I recommend. I can get it done in one coat and save you money all around. If I can't then the job is free. Bought the BEHR MARQUEE INTERIOR EGGSHELL ENAMEL. The paint actual was lighter than the color I was painting over. Well needles to say I was banking on there BEHR MARQUEE TO do what it said it would. From that day on and every house after that one I did I offer a cheaper price with a better paint and it stands up to the hype and test. I do not recommend any one to use nothing but BEHR MARQUEE AND THERE CEILING PAINT ONE COAT COVRAGE.

                                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I only use Behr paint and have for many years in many rooms in many houses. Great range of color choices, I think I've been from one end of the spectrum to the other. The paint is durable and stands up to time and the colors stays looking as new as the day I painted. I have tried the more expensive paints and they are not nearly as good as Behr paint.

                                            The paint is okay. It has good coverage. But the container stinks. It’s smaller than other tops so our pourer didn’t fit. The little opening is useless because the paint gets all over when you pour it. Put it back in the old can!
