Answer This Question

A:  Hi Sissy, thank you for your question. Our Ultra Exterior Paint can be sprayed using an airless sprayer with a .015-.021" tip. When spraying, you can thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi JB1234, thanks for the question. If your project is painting Azek decking, I wouldn't recommend it because the Ultra Exterior Paint isn't recommended to be used on areas that are walked on. If you have additional questions about your project or need another recommendation, please reach out to us directly. Our customer care team is happy to help. -Ronald

        Q:Can I use this on a previously painted gutter, that was painted with RUST STOP,BRONZE
        by|Jun 6, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Jeffrey, thank you for your question. Based on our research, it looks like the previous coating used for your gutters is an oil-based paint. Our Ultra Exterior Paint can be applied over oil-based paint. You can also reach out to the manufacturer of the paint for more information about coating over that with our water-based Ultra Paint. Please note that we do not recommend applying the paint on the inside of the gutter, where it will be subject to pooling water or submerged underwater, as that will cause the coating to fail. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. Have a great day! -Lina

          Good paint but really thick so thick it’s hard to pour out of the bucket , dries really fast in the pan splatters because of being so thick , but with all of that said after you get use to it it’s great paint seems very durable , it covers good it seems 2 coats is best , it’s pricey but well worth it , so in the end yes it has some drawbacks but also seems like great paint I would highly recommend it

          Excellent coverage. Much better than the current exterior lineup at Sherwin Williams.

          Great coverage with one coat. Two coats and you got a nice thick smooth finish. Love it.

          Great front door paint
          I used this to paint my front door. I bought a lighter color (Beachside Drive) to cover a dark blue. After cleaning the door, no priming, it took two coats. Looks beautiful. Hardly used any paint in the can so now I'm trying to figure out what else in my house I can paint this color.

            Paint was thick but we were able to thin it out for the sprayer. Nice color!

            Ruined by Water
            Unfortunately we had a surprise rainfall within 24 hours of application, although product says "rain resistant after just 60 minutes", we ended up with huge water bubbles trapped in the paint. We applied a high quality Zinsser primer to our metal building first. Used a paint sprayer to apply the paint, worked beautifully. No problems with actual application whatsoever. This is the first time anything like this has ever happened. Building is water tight. Still getting new bubbles months later.
            Response from BehrMar 20, 2024
            Hi Sarah, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear the paint bubbling after it was applied. I can understand your disappointment since the paint isn't performing as expected. Customer satisfaction is our priority, and we want to help. To fix the issue, scrape off the bubbles, sand the edges smooth if needed, clean the area, and allow it to dry. Then, touch up and allow to dry for 24 hours to see if it blends in with the rest of the wall. If not, recoat for color uniformity. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance. Our customer care team is ready to help! -Alex Behr
              This was perfect to paint the concrete countertop that goes on our cabinet that my husband built for our Blackstone Grill. LOVE IT!
