From a contractor: Hands down one of the best exterior paints available
This paint covers real well. Even the light colors never more than 2 coats needed.
Benjamin Moore Moorguard is comparable, almost twice the cost.
I hate the plastic cans though - they do not reseal and there’s money down the drain.

Ultra Bright White is NOT
I've used this paint before and really liked the coverage and low odor. However, this time around has been a bust. Went to local store and looked at the samples. Got a couple samples of the Ultra Bright White in different finishes. Both were very bright, crisp white. Based on that, and prior experience with this same color, I ordered 4 gallons of the Ultra Bright White in eggshell for a property in another state. After applying first coat, contractor called me and said it wasn't all that bright of a white. I asked him to check the cans to make sure it was the Ultra Bright White. He confirmed it was. We thought maybe it was just a matter of needing a second coat. By time I got to property, second coat was on and dried, and the color was definitely NOT "ultra bright white" but more like a off white with a slightly warm tone. We decided to try one more coat. Finished that today, and the final result has an obvious grayish cast. This from an "ultra bright white" eggshell paint. I am now on the phone with Home Depot seeking a refund or exchange for the remaining 2 gallons. Will def not be buying this brand again for any project that requires color accuracy. This is not what I wanted or what was represented in the samples or color swatch.

The paint had poor hiding coverage on walls. I had to repeat painting for more than 3 times.

Hi Don, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you're not getting good coverage. Our Marquee paint should cover in one coat when tinted to one of the one-coat colors and applied over a previously painted surface. 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! -Ronald

Covers well, low odor, beautiful paint, but over really rough old surfaces it takes a lot of paint.
Beautiful, low odor paint. the only downside is that when trying to cover older, rough wood, the coverage is much much less than the stated coverage on the can, and still required multiple coats. for the price I had hoped/expected that a single coat would be enough. That being said, I would buy this paint again since it goes on beautifully and does cover well.

Useful for Difficult to Cover Colors
I wanted to cover a hideous peach color with a soft lavender. Using a sample of the lavender demonstrated that it would take at least 3 or 4 coats to fully cover the peach. Who has time for that??? I usually don't buy this grade of paint, but decided my time was worth something. It still took two coats, but two coats with a perfect, smooth, gorgeous finish is much better than endless coats and possibly still being unhappy with it. Plus, in the long run one gallon of this was more cost-effective than needing two gallons of something cheaper.

I have painted my house with this paint over 4 years ago . It’s been power washed 3 times and still looks brand new. I just bought a shed so I picked up the same paint . It’s a wonderful product

Worst paint I've ever used
Bought this paint as it is advertised as their best product and covers in one coat. I spent days preping my room for painting for this paint to ruin the wall in 3 minutes. I cut in the corners and ceiling with a brush and proceeded to roll the wall only for all the paint to clump together and create a mess on the wall. The paint drys so quickly that you don't even have time to put more paint on the roller before it begins to stick and pull it off the wall.
I would not recommend this to anyone.

Hi Nick, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint was drying too fast and clumping. This is not the experience we want for our customers, and I understand your disappointment. To slow down the dry time, you are able to add 4 oz. of water per gallon. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback.

I recently purchased Swiss coffee paint and painted my entire home with exception to my 2 bathrooms and sunroom. My home is so much brighter, seems so much larger and I just love it. The paint is amazing quality. I will highly recommend it!

Poor coverage of area to be painted. Paint is too thick. Does not apply well.
Response from BehrAug 3, 2022
Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get the coverage you expected and that the paint was thick and didn't apply well. Typically, our Premium Plus Paint will cover in two coats, while darker colors and porous surfaces may require additional coats.
