Love Behr
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought the exterior “Cracked Pepper” for my home in 2020. It still looks amazing. Love the way it went on. I did all the painting myself.

                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have a home built in early 1900's wood siding we scraped and sanded to a smooth surface and with one application it has started to crack and peel.
                    Response from Christina, Behr Customer CareJul 7, 2023
                    Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to review our Ultra Exterior Paint. I'm sorry to hear about the cracking and peeling on your wood siding. To fix this, I recommend sanding to remove the cracking/peeling areas and cleaning with a damp cloth. Once dry, you can touch up with leftover paint and apply a full coat for color uniformity (if needed). I've also reached out to you via email to get more details about your project and assist further. Thanks again for reaching out, and I hope to hear back from you soon! -Christina
