We used the Behr paint and primer in one to paint over our fireplace bricks - which had been painted white before we got to them. In one coat, we went from white to deep brown.

One coat!

If you want to see proof, you can check out our experience with the paint on our blog:

Good luck!
"We’ve had one bad experience with Behr paint in the past," So you have used it twice and it worked good once. 50% success rate is what we are all looking for....

Behr like all brands is not perfect. My experience with the primer and paint in one has been nothing but good. Behr paint overall is just ok. We have had much better luck with Sherwin Williams and Porter for just basic paint. Again, the primer and paint in one that we used was excellent.

It may have improved now if they stuck Duration in the can instead. If you really want to try Duron, just ask at an SW store. They can order it for you. We took on Pratt & Lambert in place of Duron and it's been a much better paint for the most part. They still have some products that plain out suck though. Like Porcelain.
I have to disagree with you on the porcelain. We have been selling P&L at our store for the last year, it has been a success, and our best interior seller is the porcelain satin sheen. All of the painters and home owners love the stuff, we sell it all the time. P&L has fiive interior lines and three exterior lines. The only line of paint from P&L that I ever got complaints from was their interior gold line, which is a production line paint (professional). Are you using the p&l colorants with the paint? I have found their colorant line to be superior to most other paint companies, such as Behr, Devoe, Glidden, ect.

Yes we are using their colorants. We sell a lot of Davis Perfection, which is also a ceramic paint. It blows Porcelain away. The biggest problem everyone around here had with Porcelain was the texture. It looked like sandpaper on the wall. It was also extremely runny. The Davis product gets you a much smoother finish, all the benefits of ceramic bead, Microban protection, Zero VOC, and runs about $10 a gallon cheaper. Now granted, we were one of the first accounts (to my knowledge) to get to try porcelain before it hit the shelves. They may have changed it quite a bit since then, but according to my sales rep, the product just doesn't sell that well company wide. We sell a ton of Gold though with no complaints at all. I think that issue may all be in what the customer is expecting of a builder grade product. It has great hide and coverage for what it is. Now this is on the interior line. I'm trying to clearance the exterior because I can no longer see any benefit to carrying it with the miniscule price difference between it and RedSeal. We are currently on the 80 Gallon buy program for RedSeal and I can sell it cheaper than Gold.

That was a problem with the porcelain a while ago. the product DOESN'T sell as well as the gold or redseal cause of price, and the were having issues with little chunks of residue in the paint itself. SO, after much *****ing and batch reporting at the higher up levels, i can be proud to say that we were one of the few people that alerted P&L about the issues with the product and they were able to fix the problems with the paint. SO, now it's very thick product that when drys, has a very hard, durable finish. I love it, and it's our best seller. We only carry the satin finish, and because we get the special (80 gallon price) price for it, we use it as our only interior satin finish at 27.95 retail a gallon. Normally it goes for the mid thirties or more. So, because of price, and only having ONE universal satin finish, I can sell the **** out of it!
