Needed to do some emergency (pre-winter) painting on the north side of the house. Pine porch pillars and wood slat siding and some trim work. It covers bare wood and old paint of a similar color well. I had to paint in a bit colder weather than I would have preferred (40-50 degrees F). It covered well and I had no problem hiding the brush strokes. It cured overnight. I took care not to paint deep into the afternoon so as to prevent "dew fogging". It had skinned up prior to evening dew. Shortly after the paint dried, it got very cold and so far, the paint seems to hold up well. I plan to use this product to run down the entire house this spring. Very happy with it. It stays mixed overnight and very easy to control on the the brush. One of the best paints I've used. Only Four Stars as I haven't had it on more than a few months now. Let's see how it goes this spring.
VERY DISAPPOINTED FOR THE PRICE PAID IN THE PAINT, BEHR SUPPORT, AND HD...
I am very disappointed in this paint for the price paid. 2 years ago I spent over a thousand dollars painting my new garage with this paint. A year later the sunny side had completely faded to gray and the bottom edge had completely worn away due to the rain hitting it. I contacted BEHR about their "guarantee". They said I had to show proof of my original purchase by either receipts or the old cans, and then buy another round of the same paint and send in those receipts as well as pictures of the failed paint.Then, after review, they would reimburse me. Luckily, I keep everything and still had both the old receipts and old cans that most people would have thrown away a year later. So after repainting the garage I also spent close to another thousand dollars painting the house with the same color. This year I installed an air conditioning system and bought some more of the same paint to paint the a/c ducts. I had brought one of the old cans to HD to get the new paint mixed up and it turned out to be a much lighter shade than what was on the house. I brought it back to HD to check if the paint guy had used an incorrect formula and the paint lady insisted that the formula was correct. She offered no explanation of why the color of the new paint was definitely off, refused to mix me up a new gallon, nor offered me any type of refund/credit. At nearly 50 bucks a gallon for this paint including tax and the ubiquitous "pant recycling fee" (which is ridiculous because they won't take the old cans back), I would expect better performance and much better customer support from HD and the BEHR company. I'm using Benjamin Moore next time.

Horrible paint for large flat ceilings
I have been painting for 30 years as a remodeling contractor and an owner of multiple rental properties that I maintain myself. I have used Behr before with some good success. However, within the last 2-3 years I’ve noticed poor qualities with Behr. I was in a jam and had to use Behr paint from HD. I ordered 2 gallons of Behr Ultra in Eggshell sheen tinted to an off white color of Polar Bear. The paint hid well, but you could see every single roller mark! I used it on a 10x12 textured orange peel ceiling and worked satisfactory. However, when I used it to paint a pre-primed 20x30 flat sand texture ceiling in a living room, it failed miserably!!!! After 4 coats I gave up and reprimed used Sherwin williams. Im never buying this paint again. I’ll spend my money elsewhere and get the job done right the first time.

Hello LazyS, Thanks for reviewing the Eggshell Enamel Interior Paint and Primer in One. I’m sorry to hear you had roller marks on your ceiling project. That can be disappointing, and it’s not the experience we want any of our customers to have. To fix, I recommend applying a flat sheen while maintaining a wet edge and avoiding pressure on the roller. For further assistance, please feel free to reach out directly to our customer care team. Best, Roxana N.

I didn't have any trouble with coverage. I bought four gallons and only used two and half to do the whole top portion of my home. I went from a light color to a dark color. Didn't give five stars because I can't rate on fading or dirt resistance since it's only been a few days. Time will tell but right now I am very pleased with this product and would recommend this to anyone that plans to paint their home.
Very Disappointed: Very Thin, Runny, Poor Coverage
I purchased this paint (Behr Premium Exterior Paint & Primer, Satin, White) for exterior trim. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this paint--it runs and drips and doesn't cover particularly well, so even after priming, it took two coats. Go to Sherwin Williams and buy their exterior paint, which is much thicker and covers much better and I suspect will provide a longer-lasting finish. If you paint an unfinished surface, you will need to prime anyway (no, this paint cannot be applied to unfinished surfaces without primer), and even if you paint over finished surface, the coverage is so poor that you will need multiple coats.

Hi S57, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the primer was runny and did not cover well. Our Premium Plus Paint will typically cover in two coats. This is a self-priming product and can be applied on unfinished surfaces as the first coat will be a primer coat. 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

Would not buy any other paint! ❤️
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My father worked 30 years in a hardware store. He always gave me the paint I needed and I gave him the color! He is no longer with us. But I learned over the years of making mistakes, flat, satin, cheap sale other brands. I will not paint anything unless is is BRHR. The web site is great in matching colors that transitions from room to room.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I just painted my basement and use 2 five gallon buckets of your paint. I am very happy with the paint. Not so happy with the rebates. I bought these 2 five gallon buckets of paint last year and i took a picture of the ad in the store and on line and my receipt and you would not honor it! I just bought 3 mire 5 gal buckets of paint today. It says there is no rebate but i got an email sent to me that there is $15 off each bucket in the store. They did NOT give it to me and when i asked about it they said they didnt know anything about it. You used to give $40 off each five gallon bucket and now it is only $15. I wish i lived closer to Lowes because they still give $40 off! I like your paint but it is very expensive. It is very frustrating when you cant even get the dang rebate!
