Four years ago I painted the trim on a house with the Behr Premium Plus Ultra. I really liked the look of it, but now it is peeling off badly. I wanted to get a paint that would perform better, but when I tried to use it, it was so think I couldn't load much at all on my brush. I went and bought some Benjamin Moore. Hope for a better result.
I have used this 2 times now thinking the first time maybe it was mixed wrong. First of all it does not cover in one coat unless you are maybe only one shade different. 2 it is very thick and sticky. It's like working with paint that has been sitting out for a couple hours. 3 it says you can apply a second coat in an hour....I strongly advise against this. As I said previously it's very thick and sticky and if you apply a second coat before the first is 100 percent dry it clumps up and leaves chunks and bump and pulls up the first coat. I've painted for years some of them professionally and I have used a ton of different paints..this one is not worth the extra money. It may take longer but putting a primer then your color creates a much better finished project
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.

MARQUEE PAINT....... The worst!!! I have been a painter and artist for my whole life 40 years. I painted Gables for under the eve of my roof with marquee paint.
Painted inside all the scroll work first then the front. I put the first coat on 24 hours ago and finsh is very sticky and gummy. I do understand, The darker the colors take the longest drying time. But One thin coat 24 hours!!!!!!. I need to sand this gummy paint off and redo the whole thing. It looks like they need to put more hardeners in their MarQuee paint
And yes very thin you will need 4 coats believe me. This is going back. And I am going to Sherwin Williams. PS to be fair their other line of interior Behr paint and primer is really good.

There is no other paint that can stand up to Behr Marquee - I've tried most of them, including Sherwin Williams (One of my favorites) and they fall short. Just plain and simple - the outright best paint out there.
I spent ten dollars more to get the "one coat guarantee". This paint leaves streaks. I didn't get one coat coverage, so applied a 2nd coat in the places that needed it. Waited for it to dry only to see that the areas that I applied a 2nd coat do not blend in with the single coat areas, leaving roller brush streaks all over the walls. I used the "best quality" rollers. Walls were originally white w/satin finish. New color was "Tropical Sea" (turquoise) with satin finish, which I like the color. We have company coming over today and I have to put all the furniture back, just to re-do everything tomorrow.
Been in the business for 25 years normally you get what you pay for iPhone this to be False. I purchased this pain assuming it was the best,not the case this time after a day or two The paint peeled off the walls completely first time in 20 years i had anything like that happened I had three different gallons same problem with all them I highly recommend not buying this pain
