  • Excellent hide; 1 gallon covers up to 400 sq. ft. depending on application, color and surface porosity
  • For best application, use a high quality 3/8 in. - 1/2 in. nap roller cover, nylon/polyester brush or airless sprayer (0.015 in. - 0.019 in. spray tip, 60 mesh filter)
  • Use BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a primer for properly prepared uncoated or painted interior surfaces, including woods that contain tannins (2 primer coats required for redwood and cedar) and heavily stained areas
  • Lock in stains with BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint as a spot primer, for heavy stains, test for stain bleed-through by applying BEHR ULTRA SCUFF DEFENSE Paint to a small section, if stain bleeds through, spot prime another coat to the stained area and test again before top coating, if bleeding continues, a longer dry time is needed before top coating

Love the coverage and durability
We recently moved to a new home and got all Behr paint for the downstairs rooms. Love it! We were able to cover existing paint in mostly one coat.

    The ONLY paint I buy!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have used this paint on all walls and trim of my house. It even covers bright red in only one coat. Amazing stuff! Highly recommend!

      Love this paint!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought Cotton Grey in the eggshell Scuff Defence and did our entire basement. It made such a difference and that paint went on super easy. We always buy Behr paint and think it's the best.

        Pay close attention
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] If you have imperfections on your walls, they will stand out with this paint. We tried to correct some wall imperfections but the paint would not cover the correction with the first coat or the second coat.
          Great coverage
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The thing I like about this paint is that the consistency is great.. Goes on easy and yes, you may have to two coat but it depends on the color that you are painting over,, I would recommend it to anyone novice to pro,, I have been painting for over 40 years.

            Gorgeous paint!
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This truly is a one coat paint that has just the right amount of sheen. The best part is the easy scrub off of any dirt or marks. This paint continues to look fresh year after year.

              Builder required
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The builder of our new house did not give us a choice! Insisted this was the best, most durable paint in his experience. He was right!

                Tuff paint for family's that are tuff on things
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Ive used many Behr products ,and have always been pleased. I have the house that the neighborhood kids seem to hang out at. With two kids of are own , two cats and a very large dog ,it gets crazy around here at times. There are not many walls in our place that don't have a scrape or scratch somewhere. So I decided to try the Behr Ultra scuff defense paint on the fireplace walls that were really beat up from a lot of action/kids in the area. First thing after opening up the can I noticed that the consistency seemed thicker than usual, but after cutting in my first corner I was in love, the paint just lays down so smooth and effortlessly . And so far so good at holding up crazyness we call life around here. I would highly recommend this paint especially for high traffic areas.
