Behr all in one paint and primer
 
Has anyone used this product? I am thinking of using it on a newly textured ceiling.

Do yourself a favor and use a high quality paint from a paint store :).

You probably won't find good opinions of Behr paint in this forum :no:.

Actually Consumer Reports has recently rated BEHR paint quite highly and not everyone on this forum is a Home Depot hater. HD certainly has a place in the market.

No mention of being a HD hater, actually I really like the store. I was referring to Behr paint which is what the writer inquired about. I am going by experience as well as the other individuals and pros in this forum; paint quality and performance (or lack of) is why the majority of users will recommend a high quality paint of which Behr is not considered :).

As far as Behr being rated high by CR....many are still scratching their heads on that one, lol. If you take the time to read some of the posts on Behr paint, you'll see why the comments are made.

Go to a Benjamin Moore dealer and Moorosco's Celing White. It is about th same price as Behr, if not lower, and 100x better.

Yes HD has a place in the market
Behr does not

Behr is cheap for a reason. It's more like glue than paint. It's a 'behr' to work with.

Seeing as how Behr is now crossing the $30 line, there is paint out there that will kick the crap out of it for less.

As far as cheap big box paint, I had good luck with the Kilz Paint. It was thick on went on as well as the SW paint with both brush and roller. It's been up about three months now and looks great. It was $23 or $24 per gallon at Walmart (choke, gag). And used Behr (given by a friend, lol) in the bathroom. It is thin and runny. After correcting runs, etc. I left room to find a big sag and a couple of runs in it later. Also a couple of bubbles appear when I shower. Not sure if it's the Behr paint or the Kilz Latex primer (junk). Oh well, that gives me another project to do, lol :).

Behr and Kilz are both made by the same company. (Masco)

I had read another post saying the Behr and Kilz are made by same company. I will say after using both paints about three weeks apart, I found a big difference in the paint as far as application. And of course the Behr ended up sagging and running after I had left the room. Go figure, lol. I spent more time painting a room half the size of the previous room but took more time because of the Behr paint. It's awful :). The Kilz paint went on very well and I had no problems with brush marks, etc like the Behr paint. I usually use SW paint, but guess I had a wild hair the day I bought the Kilz, lol.

chrisn 07-04-2009 06:28 AM

usually use SW paint,

Isn't there a DURON near you? I know SW bought them out but if there is still a Duron store nearby you will get better service and paint(IMO) and at least that is true here.

saggdevil 07-04-2009 09:04 AM

Never heard of Duron, the only real paint store left here is SW. I did find a BM dealer about 40 miles away, but they don't carry the Aura (addl $20,000 to set up display, lol) nor did they have the microfiber roller. So is Duron a good brand of paint, or is it better than SW?
