Great paint!
We used Behr Ultra to paint our cabin. It worked great in our new sprayer that we purchased. Would highly recommend.

    Good coverage and fresh look
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Decided to paint my own house and used this. Went with satin to have better results in stains not sticking rather than flat paint. Covers well, brushed and blended nice, was easy to roll out and made the house look great.

      Best One Coat Paint & Primer!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I purchased this satin finish to paint my home's trim. Today, the finish looks absolutely awesome...and I completed the project 11 months ago. Yes, nearly a year later and the house trim looks brand new! I made sure to take care of all prep work: clean, replace failing wood trim with PVC, hole and crack fill, sanding, final clean, and caulking. I used a quality brush for the entire house, and mixed paint gallons before painting. Used a light colored ranch house beige over the existing color range. I was amazed at how easy the paint applied off the brush. Took 1 coat, not thinned, to completely cover. Best part: uniform color, uniform sheen, and absolutely zero brush stroke marks when dry. You will not be disappointed!

        High quality coverage
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We've always used Behr paint for the interior and so we did the exterior with Behr. I've got to say, it's got great coverage and durability just like the interior paint. It's only been a few months so hopefully this project will last longer than a couple of years before fading and fingers crossed that it doesn't fade at all!

          REALLY good paint
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have had this on my house for 3 years at the time of this review, I would never buy any other brand or type. The finish is still perfectly fine and looks like it was just done. I used a sprayer and didn’t thin it or have to do any modifications to it although it is fairly thick. It didn’t run and no heavy smell. You won’t be disappointed with this brand / paint

            Color did not match up
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used the app for a color match. Colors appeared to be close on the app but when applied there was a night and day difference.
            Response from Sara, Behr Customer CareNov 30, 2021
            Hi Ghhf - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the color match from the app didn't turn out as expected! Colors on our website or on our ColorSmart app may vary from the color you ultimately apply to your project. It's best to check out the paper swatch at your local Home Depot and purchase an 8 oz. sample to test out to ensure that you're happy with the color before making a larger purchase. I've reached out to you via email to assist you with this further. Thanks again for submitting a review, and I hope to hear back from you soon. - Sara

                  Best first coat experience.
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was purchased to cover Hardee Board siding. The Hardee Board had a weak factory primer on it that still showed the cement under it. The BEHR ULTRA covered the first coat beautifully and could have been the only coat. We live in Florida where the sun is rough on paint so we chose to add a second coat. WOW that color is still rich 6 years after the initial painting. We will always use this paint , its simply the best there is !!!
