Satin finish offers a pearl-like appearance
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
Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50°F-90°F (10°C-32°C), darker colors may require additional dry time between coats, cooler temperatures or higher humidity may prolong drying time
Extra-durable paint film
Advanced scuff and mar resistance helps protect wall surfaces in busy households. Do not use on floors.
Exceptional burnish resistance provides an easy-clean finish for long lasting beauty
Repainting all the trim and doors in our house and made big mistake using Premium Plus. Paint is very thick, so hard to get a smooth finish. Takes at least 2 coats to cover even white. Finish feels very gummy and is peeling after only 2 weeks. Do not buy!

Hi dakota, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint was thick, difficult to work with, and it is now peeling. This is not normal, and I understand your disappointment. I recommend sanding the loose coating off, cleaning the surface, and touching up. The paint takes 30 days to cure and fully harden. It should also have a creamy consistency, typically, covering in two coats. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna

Great paint. Painted 10x10 bedroom and closet and used less than a gallon. Painted over a light tan and only need to use one coat (rolled a little heavier coating but worked great).

Perfect hide with only 1 coat. Excellent tough finish - second coat may be need when covering very dark finishes.

I wasn't sure if this would work well, but turned out much better than expected. Customer was thinking of putting insert in fireplace. Once they seen finished product they decided not to.

Hi Buyingrealpaintfromnowon, thank you for your review. I'm so sorry to hear our Marquee didn't cover your project in three coats. We guarantee one-coat coverage on previously coated surfaces while using a one-coat color with our Marquee paint. Ultra Pure White is not a one-coat color. Please reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist. We look forward to hearing from you. -Michael

Paint is terrible, I paid a professional to paint my new custom made stairs last week & the paint is peeling off. I now need to pay to have it fixed, re primed & repainted. I would not recommend this paint to anyone.

Hi HomeDepotCustomer - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that this paint is peeling off your stairs! Our Ultra Scuff Defense paint line wasn't designed to hold up on surfaces that will be walked on. To ensure a long-lasting finish, it's best to remove the current paint and reapply a floor paint (like our Porch & Patio Floor Paint). For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help - Sara
