Questions & Answers

Q:What type of paint would be best used to cover glossy existing paint?
by|Oct 12, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. Our Ultra Scuff Defense Paint is an excellent choice for coating over existing paint. However, we recommend scuff sanding the surface beforehand, as glossy coatings can make it difficult for paint to adhere on its own. Our Bonding Primer (432) can reduce the need for sanding glossy surfaces. When using the primer, we recommend applying that to a small area to test the adhesion before moving forward with your project. Have a great day! -Lina

    Q:Help!! Paint is expensive. 2 part question. Purchased Distant Star-blue on the wall. 1. Can I take it back to have it mixed to be more gray? If so mix? Articles say orange/white. If I?m SOL, ? color should I purchase that will truly look light gray?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Sross. Thank you for your questions. I'm sorry the color turned out more blue than expected. I recommend working with your local store to see if they can add more tint to the paint to adjust the color. If that's not possible, it's best to use a new can tinted to a new color closer to the light gray you want and test it in a small area first to ensure it looks just right. For a true gray, I recommend looking at Classic Silver PPU18-11 or Platinum PPU26-11. Customer satisfaction is important to us, so please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance with this. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni

      Q:How do you remove this paint off of a comforter and clothes?
      by|Mar 28, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Mcudc23, I'm sorry to hear that paint splattered and dried up on your clothes and comforter. Home Depot usually has some great dry latex paint removers available. Some people also have had good results by saturating the paint with a 50/50 solution of warm water and detergent and blotting vigorously--rinse and repeat may be necessary until the paint is gone. Others have had good luck with rubbing alcohol or vinegar and baking soda. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have. ~Doris

          Takes more than one coat
          I would recommend Behr paint, just not the Marquee that is supposedly a one-coat paint - it simply isn't. After two coats, things look good - but then why did I pay the premium for one-coat guarantee? Save yourselves the frustration and buy their standard paint for less and plan on two coats from the start.

              Superior Application and Color Match
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this product in the Half Sea Fog to paint our living room. We purchased our first home and I am not sure that the walls had ever been repainted since it was built in 2006. I’m blown away by how easy this paint was to apply, that there was no dripping or issues with flying drops, and the color is exactly what I thought it would be. Definitely will be a lifelong customer of this brand of paint.

                Dining Room in Milkweed Pod
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I chose the Behr color Milkweed Pod for my dining room and powder bathroom, and I absolutely love it! Only had to do one coat, and it looks flawless! The original paint was cheap painters grade so this is a major up grade!
