Hi Stumpy, thank you for your question. For the best adhesion of your new paint, we would recommend slightly scuff sanding or deglossing any surface with that has a sheen/gloss before repainting. Hope this info helps. Happy painting, and best of luck with your project! -Joanna

Since this is a primer also, can it be painted over semi-gloss or gloss paint or do you still nee...

Asked by mk July 27, 2017

Hi mk, Thank you for your question. The color of this product is Ultra Pure White. If you're looking for a color that isn't as clean and bright, you have the option of adding up to 2 oz. of colorant (per gallon) to this paint. Best wishes! - Sara

how can you tint something that is ultra pure white to ultra pure white and why does it cost $2.00 more

Asked by jay May 16, 2016

Hello jay, Thanks for your question! We don't have a dedicated ceiling paint that comes in semi-gloss, but you could use our Premium Plus Ultra Interior Semi-Gloss which is totally fine to use on ceilings (and walls, of course): http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-Plus-Ultra-1-gal-Ultra-Pure-White-Semi-Gloss-Enamel-Interior-Paint-375001/203202285. Well wishes for your painting!

This is the BEST Behr Ultra Ceiling Paint Ever! I have used other ceiling paints but this one is INCREDIBLE! Not one drip, drop or splatter and the coverage is phenomenal. I have been using an extra bedroom for storage and so I never painted over what was there when I moved in. Well now, I am going to use it as a bedroom and needed to paint everything. The ceiling was a nightmare. I don't know what was used on it, but there was about 6 coats of blue paint (the previous owners made a sky with clouds). I was so surprised when only one coat of this Behr Ultra ceiling paint pretty much covered it! There were only a few spots that needed touching up so I decided to give the whole ceiling a second coat and it came out just beautiful! This is by far, is the easiest paint I have ever worked with and I had to paint everything in this house. I wish I had discovered it sooner. The color is perfect, the consistency allows the paint to go on smoothly and most importantly EVENLY and all this amounts to time saving. ABSOLUTELY THE HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION I can give!!!!! USE THIS PAINT. Did I mention NOT ONE drip, drop or splatter?!?!?!!? You will LOVE it, and the professional results! I speak from experience!!

Great coverage
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just finished using a bargain brand ceiling paint and it was like painting with water so I stepped up to the Behr for my next job...coverage was great and didn’t feel like I was wasting my time and money doing everything twice.

Covers in one coat!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Painting a ceiling i found i had to go over several times. Not just stains but the ceiling would absorb the paint unevenly, so after it dried it had lighter spots. Heard a professional painter talking to a guy and he recommend behr ultra or marquee ceiling paint. He said it’s a few dollars more but one coat. He was so right! Won’t ever use anything else.
