First Gallon
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.

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. Behr

very pleased
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.

Really anti-scuff
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This paint is great! Keeps my dogs from leaving so many muddy marks and scratches on my baseboards and my walls, which is a real treat for me!

bad coverage
I had to use 2 coats to cover a very light blue color.

Hi Whitney,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Marquee Paint. I'm very sorry to hear about the coverage issue experienced, as it's not what we want our customers to go through. Marquee has a One-Coat Color Collection that guarantees full coverage in a single coat when applied to a primed/painted surface. However, colors outside of the One-Coat Color Collection may require multiple coats. As it turns out, untinted Ultra Pure White and colors outside of the MARQUEE Interior One-Coat Color collection may require more than one coat to achieve complete hide and a uniform finish.

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 experience and find the best way to help.

Kindest regards,

Doris Behr

Excellent coverage!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We use this one on trims and doors all over the house, the finish is great as well as the white tone! Easy to apply and no need of primer!
