  • Ideal for busy high traffic areas, family rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and ceilings
  • Available in an EXTRA DURABLE FLAT SHEEN which provides a beautiful non-reflective appearance along with excellent touch-ups
  • Excellent hide; 5 gallons cover up to 2000 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

Dynasty Paint
I bought this paint for my daughters room. We chose Polar Bear in the Dynasty and it certainly exceeded my expectations especially since we were painting the color Polar Bear over Tiffany Blue. This paint went on smoothly and covered well.

    behr marquee color match chantily laced
    Semi gloss color (bright white) one coat guarantee isnt true. You can clearly see the first and second coat difference in this paint. Highly disappointed. Never have i had an issue with any other marquee paint.

    Hi Evan, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not get 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 or primed 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! -Giovanna Behr

      Bought this paint around February 2019 for my Bathroom. Yesterday I noticed a YELLOW spot above my shower. After determining it was YELLOW MOLD, I removed it per instructions from the web. I have painted my bathroom with different brands of paint over the 30+ years I have live here with none of them growing MOLD. Behr grows MOLD! So don't buy this paint for your bathroom. I have bought my LAST BEHR paint. My wife looked for our receipt from Home Depot with NO luck, or I would ask for my money back. Very DISSATISFIED!

      Hi SteveMidwest,

      Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the mold growth in your bathroom! Our Premium Plus Interior paint line is mold and mildew resistant, however, it will not prevent mold from growing completely, especially in high moisture areas. To remove any mold growth in the future, we recommend using a mold/mildew remover (available at your local Home Depot). If the remover discolors the surface, we recommend touching up with more paint for a uniform finish. For further assistance with your project, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We'd be happy to help - Sara Behr

        Do Not Buy! This pain peals away with the tape, and does not adhere to the walls. Even with a primer-coat (which the folks at Home Depot will tell you is unnecessary, because the paint has primer in it), the paint pulls off of the wall in large chunks. Especially bad for damp environments, where you don't want moisture getting below the paint and the paint bubbling up. The worst is that once the paint pulls away from the wall, it creates a uneven surface that is difficult to cover. Avoid Behr at all costs. There's a reason that Benjamin Moore is the specification grade paint of choice.

          It's good but it's not great. Have been using it for years but honestly just don't feel like I'm getting the even opaque coverage that I'm paying for. After buying the first 25 gallons this year I finally stepped up and bought the marquis line. Worlds better but geez do you have to pay for it

              Has worked so far
              It's worked so far on trim and doors but is definitely not one coat. We've done two coats over oak wood trim and doors and will probably have to do a third. Hopefully this holds up through the years.
