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

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
Worst paint we ever used. Painted many times. Primed the room, cleaned the walls and then we started painted one roll up, one roll down to go over little missed spots and half the pain comes down and clumps on. Painting slower pulls the paint up...

Hi NeveragainDynasty - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the paint was clumping and pulling up during application! To fix the finish, I recommend allowing your last coat to dry for at least 24 hours before lightly sanding off any unwanted texture from the surface. Once the clumps are sanded off and the surface is wiped down, a new coat can be applied for a uniform finish. If the paint seems to be drying too fast as you're rolling it on, 4 oz. of water per gallon can be added to slow down the dry time. For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help. - Sara

NOT a one coat guarantee!
This is an overpriced paint! Supposedly it’s a one coat guarantee and it’s supposed to be able to withstand cleaning. I wiped up a scuff and the paint came off on my rag. The paint had been placed a week before. It also is not a one coat guarantee. I painted over a white with a slight blue hue and it required three coats.

Hi L Martinez - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you needed to apply 3 coats for full coverage and the paint came off when you cleaned the surface. Our Marquee paint line was designed to cover your previously painted or primed surfaces when tinted to a color from our One-Coat Color palette. Once fully cured (this takes 4 weeks), it can be easily wiped down to maintain a clean finish. For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help. - Sara

I have a huge house that needed painting. House has red and green interior walls. This paint covers them up. Needed i heavy coat and a light second coat on red walls. Was going to use killz, but you Don't need to with this paint. House is looking great. About half way finished.

One coat coverage
Made my old stained facias and soffets look new and clean with only one coat

One coat coverage is a myth
Good product and very durable. I still needed 2 coats of an off white to cover a tan room.

Paint and primer takes 4 coats to apply
I standard whisper white has taken 4 coats to cover a fairly light colour that pre existed on my walls. The paint is extremely thick and streaky. I wish I haven’t mad never started with this paint. It shouldn’t be this hard.

Hello Robin, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint needed so many coats to cover the light color and was thick and streaky. If you’re still having coverage issue or streaks, I recommend allowing the last coat of paint to dry 24 hours before deciding if another coat is needed. Also, I recommend stirring the paint for 5 minutes to see if it goes back to a creamy consistency. If not, it’s best to use a new container to recoat.
