Questions & Answers

Q:Hello I want to paint my metal shower frame with this paint in matt black. Do I need to prime this first? If so what primer do I use? Or is cleaning and sanding enough for adhesion?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi there, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we do not recommend any of our coatings inside a shower. Our products are not designed to be submerged underwater or get wet constantly. I suggest checking with your local store for a recommendation on a suitable product to use for your project. Have a great day! -Giovanna

      A:  Hi Maureen, thank you for your question. I'd like to mention that latex and acrylic paints are the same thing. With that in mind, our Ultra Exterior Paint is an acrylic/latex water-based paint. Please feel free to reach out to us again if you have any other questions. -Lina

        Q:Can I paint vinyl siding with this?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Singh, thanks for the question. Yes, you can paint vinyl siding with our Ultra Exterior Paint. If the siding is smooth and glossy, I'd recommend scuff-sanding it first to help with the adhesion of the paint. Have a great day! -Ronald

          We provided the paint lady a Behr card that we got from Home Depot euro gray Ppu25-17 using Behr Ultra exterior flat Ultra pure white 4850 We expected a Gray color which would tie into our house color. What we got instead was a dull white. So I’m not sure where the we received came from but the label said Not Returnable and since we live about 30 minutes away we decided to use the mixed paint.

          Incredible color and product. Steel door was pickled with vinegar then two coats applied. Came out fantastic. The ladies at the paint counter at my local Home Depot suggested this color and paint product and I am happy.

          Not happy
          Not sure what happened, this 5 gallons of paint is not working. only way to describe it is that it looks like there wasn't enough paint added. After mixing its looking purple and goes on real thin.
          Response from BehrSep 20, 2023
          Hi Bill, thanks for your review. I'm sorry to hear the paint looks purple and seems thin. 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! -Christina Behr
            Behr Raven black flat paint with primer gave very good coverage with one coat on deck posts. Will be giving a second coat for longer wear.

            Great color and quality
            Used on our new shed and I just love the color. I also loved the new lid system and the option to use a pourable spout. Easy to use and great quality paint. Also found the Behr website helpful in finding complementary shades to match the trim and door.

            Great color and coverage
            I only needed one coat for my front door. I love the results and it went on beautifully with a roller. Worth every penny.
