Worst ceiling paint made.
This was the worst ceiling paint ever. It was patchy, it streaks, it leaves all these lines and has poor coverage. I wasted 3 tubs of paint with a total of coats on the ceilings and wasted so much time trying to get out the streaks and it didn't do anything. I wish I hadn't spent so much money on it.

Hi David,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Plus Ceiling Paint. I'm very sorry to hear about the appearance issues experienced, as it certainly isn't what we want our customers to go through. Applying a coat of paint perpendicular to the last should help minimize roller marks for a more uniform look and better coverage. Customer satisfaction is very important to us, and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd love to learn more about your project and find the best way to help.

Kindest regards,

Doris Behr
Decent ceiling paint
I used a paint sprayer to spray the ceiling paint. The paint isn't the best but it's good for the price. To me, it appeared to be watery and separates within a day. It's best to have it shaken, used right away, or else you'll need to really stir it up well before each use.

Behr paint is awesome
Very good paint for popcorn ceiling. Good coverage. I trust Behr paint. My first and last choice.

Not Good
I've painted many ceilings and walls in my home over the last 20 years and I've never had such a negative experience with paint. I've purchased three gallons of this paint to apply on my kitchen / family room ceilings and it's still has not covered. There are roller streaks and dark patches and it looks awful. I don't feel like an investing more money to see if a fourth coat will work. I will not be buying Behr paint anymore.

Hello Jflo, thank you for sharing your feedback. We're sorry to hear you're not getting the coverage you expected on your ceiling, and that after three coats there are still visible marks; that's not the experience we want our customers to have with our products. To get your project back on track, we'd recommend recoating your ceiling (per the labels recommended spread rate). To avoid marks, be sure to blend all start and stop points with a well-saturated application tool, while maintaining a wet edge. Customer satisfaction is important to us. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for additional assistance or if you have any questions. Have a great rest of your day. –Joanna Behr

Does not cover square footage claimed.
I was having trouble finding very bright white on a budget. The home depot paint specialist pointed me to this paint. I was thinking i can do most of my 900 sq ft apt just on this 2 gal since my ceiling is already white and this claims it covers up to 800 sq ft no need of primer if ceiling is already white flat. Well....I liked the bright white but after painting with a professional 18inch roller, I noticed I had to go over the same spot several times to truly cover . Before I know it the 2 gallons were gone before I was even finished with my living room area which is only 325 sq ft. Less than half of the proclaimed coverage area : /

worst paint I've ever used
Finished painting last night, next morning found paint cracking in small patches everywhere. Now I have to remove flaking paint off, mud and feather then repaint again. Definitely will stay away from this paint 100%. Waste of my money and time.

Absolutely terrible ceiling paint
I am amazed at how poorly this paint performs. I primed my new ceilings and applied two coats in alternating directions and still had horrible dark patches and minimal covering. I then hired a painter to come in and spray the paint thinking it was my fault. After the spraying, it hardly looks any better due to the minimal coverage. I then tried once more another layer with the roller and still dark patches where it didn't cover. That's FOUR LAYERS and still not covering. I think i'd be better off painting it with vitamin D milk.

Hi Isaac - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the dark patches and poor coverage on your ceiling! This product will typically cover primed ceilings in 1-2 coats. If the finish still doesn't look right after your second coat, we recommend allowing the paint to dry for 48 hours as the extra dry time may allow the coverage to correct itself. Since you already have 4 coats on your ceiling, we recommend recoating with our Premium Plus Interior Flat which has a higher solid count. So we can assist you with this further, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We hope to hear from you. - Sara Behr
