Dries beutifully. Easy to clean
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Used this to paint a banquette dining bench we built. It was the perfect paint for that. It dried nicely, and is very easy to clean smudges and stains off

      Do not recommend - for average painter
      I have no idea if professionals would have the problems I have- but this has been the worst painting experiences of my 45 yrs of average home owner painting. This paint is runny thin, smears on and I'm currently on coat 3 and will have to do at the very least a 4th coat. I am painting an outside door. I primed as directed with 2 coats. This paint is taking 24 hours to dry.. and its still tacky. I've sanded in between coats as directed as well. I cant believe how this just smears on, how it is sticky and doesnt seem to dry well and most of all how many coats its taking. ( I may be using the wrong terms here- but just fair warning.. If you're just an average or above average home painter--- run away from this product.

      Response from Doris, Behr Customer CareJun 15, 2021
      Hi PZale,

      Thank you for reviewing Behr Urethane Alkyd Semi-Gloss Enamel. I'm very sorry to hear about the issues you've experienced, as it's not typical for the paint to perform like that. I understand how disappointing this must be, and I want to help.

      A small test area can be cleaned with warm soapy water (dish soap is okay) to help remove the tacky top layer. If that helps, you can proceed with cleaning the rest of the surface. In the worst-case scenario where the paint doesn't dry after a month's dry time, the surface should be stripped, cleaned, and recoated.

      I emailed you directly to follow up and I look forward to assisting you.

      Kindest regards,

        if in doubt use this
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] when ever I'm going over old oil based finish I use this. You can't use water based paint over old oil it won't adhere but this urethane alkyd will stick beautifully. it also works great flows out with minimal sagging or runs and dries to to smooth glossy finish even when you brush or roll it.

              Time will tell if it is really a 5 out of 5
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was tired of my door trims and baseboards chipping and looking rough. So I went with the Alkyd for durability and cleanability. It works like a dream, good flow, few brush marks when using the proper type of brush recommended, very smooth finished surface. The finished product looks great, and only time will tell on the durability, but I am very happy- Dry time is pretty great as well, depending on the weather, it was actually a bit shorter than the product instructions would indicate.

                    Really good
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I wanted to try the urethane enamel. I've used it a dozen times on various surfaces, walls, ceilings, kitchen cabinets, trim, doors, etc. I'm very impressed with the ease of application, the coverage and drying time. Definitely recommend it for surfaces that you want durability on.

                      Nice paint
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I grew up painting with oil based products. I never thought I would see something like it in a water based formula. But I really like this paint. After using other brands of similar makeup, I like the way this one works better. It lays on nicely, rolls easily, dries smoothly and quickly. I have used it on doors, baseboards, trim, cabinets. It takes some getting used to but I like it.

                        Good coverage
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I painted my front door with this paint. The door was originally a dark brown color and I painted it with a lighter color but it covered beautifully. I did have to use two coats but the second coat was very light. Yeah went on easily and looks beautiful.

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This paint went on smoothly and somehow got rid of the brush marks! The finish is so beautiful and updating the look of my home is still worth wearing paint for a couple of days. I like painting but haven't mastered the technique! I definitely will buy this paint again.

                                  Caution on drying time
                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I generally really like BEHR products but be cautious with this paint if you plan to use it outdoors and it’s exposed to rain. I learned the hard way after letting it dry for two days I brought it outside and we had a light sprinkle of rain and the surface completely bubbled. I did some research and it suggested waiting at least one week I did that and just expose it to a few drips of water and I noticed the surface started to look like it was being impacted. I’m going to let it dry for another week before exposing it again. The benefit is this product goes on very smoothly but I think it would be better suited being used inside even though it says exterior. I’ve never had a paint take this long to set up and dry I’m a little worried that it will be good outside general.

                                    Cabinet Trim and Door Paint Extraordinaire!!
                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I researched online to find a tough paint that would stand up to the abuses that children can so easily inflict, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. I was always touching up scuffed paint off trim or chips on the doors. I bought this after reading an article and am so thankful I found it. It is hands down the most amazing paint I have ever used. My paint contractor was confused by it at first, but even he has now fallen in love with it and how easily it glided on and how fast it dried. One year later and not a single scuff, chip or fade on any area and I used it through the while house. My poor doors are still intact and still new looking as the day they were painted. What I love most about the white semi gloss is the definition it gave to my whole room, as it's a stand out paint that contrasted perfectly with my colored walls. The clean up is an absolute breeze too! I don't need to use a microfiber sponge to try to remove dirty fingerprints. I literally wet a rag and wipe and it's good as new. Buy this paint! You'll fall in love with it and the ease of clean up, and to top it off, you won't be saddled with those constant touch up jobs that become so commonplace with the other paints I had used in the past.

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After using a large national chain paint store for years I had to give up on them when their paint refused to dry and stayed sticky forever. No problems with BEHR Urethane Alkyd, flows nice, dries properly, give a hard durable finish and cleans up with soap and water. Best of the best.

We went from oak stain to white cabinets and we could not be happier.

                                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The first time that I used Behr alkyd paint was two years ago when remodeling my casita for use as a vacation rental. Having strangers as guests with quick turn arounds, I needed to minimize damages/repairs. I used the alkyd paint on the cabinet doors in the bathroom; it sprayed smoothly through an HVLP paint sprayer, leaving a smooth & flawless finish. I then painted three exterior metal doors with the same paint - same great result. My most recent project is refinishing the metal portions of an outdoor sculpture created by my husband. In addition to provide a tough and beautiful finish, this paint will withstand the extreme temperatures of the desert....
