A:  Hi Walden - Thank you for your question. Our Ultra Exterior Satin Enamel is not recommended on roofs. You may want to check out our Multi-Surface Roof Paint which is ideal for a metal roof and can be tinted to the color Dark Ash 770F-5. Best - Sara

    A:  Hi JL, You don't have to prime when using Behr ULTRA Paint & Primer-in-One. The first coat primes and additional coats increase coverage. 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

      A:  Hi wenatl - Thank you for your question! Our Ultra Interior paint can go directly over oil-based coatings in good condition. We recommend scuff sanding glossy surfaces and making sure your project is clean and dry before painting. Best - Sara

          Does not adhere, does not cover as advertised , everything was prepped properly and professionally.complete waste of time and money . Will never purchase again ! Home Depot should be ashamed for selling junk ! Should have googled it first, I would have seen all the lawsuits over it ! Should be pulled off the shelf
          Response from BehrAug 29, 2022
          Hi there, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that you had an issue with the paint adhering and that the paint didn't cover as expected. Our Marquee paint should cover in one coat when tinted to one of the one-coat colors and applied over a previously painted surface. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about the paint not adhering and assist. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr

            I have tried to give Behr a couple chance for furniture and wall paint. But even after surface prepping and double coating you literally can take your fingernails and scratch the paint right off the surface. A tiny bump will scratch the paint.
              Excellent trim paint
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great viscosity, for a smooth, even finish, while also being durable.

                My 1st choice here’s why…
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Easy application that goes on evenly without leaving roller or brush marks. Two coats is all that’s necessary for full coverage. I’ve been doing interior painting for almost 30 years and used all competitor brands and this is my #1 top choice! Not only is application the best but the durability of the finished product rate top notch. Resistant to scuffs, scratches and stains. Very washable.

                  Behr Ultra Scuff Defense
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased our house back in April 2022, the previous owner decided to paint the bathroom in a very cheap way and the old paint was bubbling and pealing away, I took the time to read up on the Behr products and how I could make this room in my house correct, I purchased two different products from Behr, one was a base coat and this one as the top coat. All the products I purchased from Behr were great but this one really impressed me, the ease of use and the coverage was amazing. great product and now I have great protection on my bathroom wall, superior paint to others I have used. Right after I painted the bathroom and it was dry. I hung a few things up on the bathroom wall one fell off with a little help from one of the Grand kids it scuffed the wall as it fell. I took a wet cloth and wiped the wall and it was like magic it was gone. Thank you for making such a great product.

                    Great cover!
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The previous owner of the house we.bought was a pipe smoker. We were overjoyed with the cover we got from the Behr Ultra paint! Time saver! Amazing coverage, great color. Behr is our favorite brand!

                      Great for household with kids
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this paint about a year ago and it has held up really well. I’ve used it in the bathrooms and kitchen and have had no trouble with peeling paint. With 7 children in the house it has made cleaning handprints off easier. I’ve been gradually starting to paint the boys’ room with it because it goes on so well and last, unlike another brand I tried in the living room and girls’ room.

                        Really holds up
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We purchased a beautiful, happy yellow can of Behr paint for our accent walls. The paint is lovely and rich. The color really pops. It adds joy to the environment. This Behr paint really holds up against scuffs and scratches.
