Q:Do you still need coating before applying this pain on a masonry wall?

1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. When applying the Direct-To-Metal Paint to a masonry surface, we recommended priming first using a product such as our Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer No. 436. Have a great day! - Randy

          Works great on galvanized steel
          Used to paint galvanized steel water heater covers. Wiped off with vinegar and then mineral spirits before applying this and it has held up, to my knowledge. No callbacks.

            We painted our barn and chicken house and love the color. When we mixed it, I was a little skeptical, because it was so thick. It took two coats of paint, but went on the buildings beautifully.

            Worst paint ever!
            Bought this to paint the wrought iron stair rail in my house. Used Behr metal primer. Sanded, wiped, then tried rolling (used small fuzzy roller for metal), sponge brush, brush - all looks so bad!!!!! Simply will not adhere unless I put a very heavy coat on. Leaves brush marks, streaks. Looks SO bad!!!!!!!! One area took four coats before it looked somewhat decent. I have painted metal gates and fences and never had paint go on so thin. Now, I am afraid to do the rest of the railing!!!! Ugh!!!!!!

            Response from BehrSep 13, 2021
            Hi UPSET - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint consistency seems thin and the finish looks streaky. This product should have a creamy consistency and typically covers in 2 coats (certain colors may require additional coats). If stirring the paint for a few minutes before use doesn't correct the consistency, it's best to continue your project with a new can. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can assist you with this further. We hope to hear from you! - Sara Behr
              I have tried many paints and brands...
              I have tried many paints and brands of paints on my shipping container builds. Behr’s direct to metal is far superior to everything I used so far . I love using a dark palette when designing and find it difficult to find a product that will harden.I highly recommend this product--Arthur Steedle

              The man who took care of us was amazing. Nobody can mix paint like Harrison very pleased. Will definitely return again.
