Sample color does not match Behr swatch card
The "Mesa Taupe" sample, well stirred, did not match the Behr swatch card at all. When I contacted Behr customer service they told me to pick another color. It took my wife an I a lot of time to pick this color and test it on our shed.
Response from BehrOct 20, 2021
Hi Greg, thank you for writing in. I'm sorry to hear the sample of Mesa Taupe didn't turn out how you expected it to. While colors will appear differently from the color card to the paint applied to your project, we still like to hear more about your issue and verify the color formula used. 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
    Great paint and coverage
    We paired Mesa Taupe with Harmonious and love that combo on several main walls with a couple of accent walls. I used 250 sq feet for the coverage calc. Believe we could have gone to 275 for less left over paint. We applied 2 coats for the desired color, some might have stopped at one coat for a lighter finished color. We only used a dry swifter to wipe down loose dirt, webs, etc.

      Quality paint, bright and clean. Great coverage.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Painted the underside of my porch. Amazing bright white finish with Superior coverage and very little splatter. Like a face lift for a weathered porch. Worth spending a little extra to get quality results. No I did NOT power wash prior. Swear by BEHR!

        Fantastic product!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Every year we have a painting project at our school and since switching to Behr we noticed the colors remain much more vibrant. The color easily withstands the Arizona heat and sun when compared to the other manufacturer. It also makes graffiti cleanup easy with easy coverup and application qualities of the paint.

          great coverage and durability
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I always use Behr after doing a remodel job on an historic home in the Cuyler Brownsville historic district in Savannah. I used Behr exclusively, both inside and out. I recently bought a quart each of 3 exterior color to do a test gable end on my newer home in Pooler, Ga. prior to getting the paint for the whole home, and the quarts covered the older (10+ years) in 1 coat, and looks great- just waiting to see if y'all are going to run a Memorial Day sale this year!!
            Outstanding paint!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted my home here in Phoenix with this paint over 6 years ago. It covers beautifully, goes on great, and stands up to extreme weather. I recommend this Behr paint to everyone, and when it is time to paint my place again, I'll buy this again!

                  lasting paint
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We've used the exterior paint on several outdoor projects and are pleased with its endurance to outdoor elements; in Ohio winters can be rough and it's been holding up ok;

                    Using for more than 20 years and still a favorite!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve been using this product for more than 20 years and it’s the very best. Covers easily and levels out to an outstanding professional finish. An honest time saver! I painted my house on my own, alone! Only reason I attempted such an undertaking is because BEHR paint is such a joy to apply and lasts for years!
