The Behr Ultra performs as well as the Home Duration or Aura at a much better price.

It's a brand new product and I would hope Behr has learned something from their previous failures, but until it's been in use for at least five years that statement has no validity. In the meantime, and because I warrant my work, I'll stick with paints I can trust.

That statement is just plain and simple HORSE HOCKY, I have actually used this crap( not my choice) and it is actually worse than the original,if that is even possible. To put behr in the same sentence as duration and aura is ludicrous.

Then there's the old addage: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

I have a friend who swears by Behr paint, just loves it; but then she has never used much of anything else so she has nothing to compare it with, lol.

Personally, ONCE WAS ENOUGH FOR ME. "Seeing is believing".

I would not argue that but come on, to equate Behr with Ben Moore and or Sherwin Williams just does not compute.

Behr has a great color selection but it stops there. It is definitely in a different category that than of good paint...almost to the point of being a different commodity.

It amazes me that there are some that have used Behr paint and still think it to be a great product, lol. It also amazes me that DIYers don't always take the advise of a pro when it comes to paint.

Btw...I am a diy'er but I can definitely tell the difference in Behr vs. SW and others.

come on man. You have one post thus far and it is to say Behr performs just as well as Duration Home or Aura?

You must be smoking some real illegal buds man. HD paint does sag...a lot, so if you are not accustomed to checking, checking and rechecking your work. The next day you come in will be prep day all over again.

HD makes a lot of different products. They do not concentrate on one item like SW or BM does. HD also has a lot of money to market their products. BM does not pop for a lot of marketing, but they do fine. SW is a monster in marketing, so SW gets notcied more. Does that mean SW is better? Not at all.

I guess it is like the Greek Orthodox Church which spawned the Roman Catholic Church. The RCC has been around for ages. Does that mean they are the only Church with the ultimate truth because of age? Not at all.

So, before you go spewing on how Behr is the tops and you throw rocks at SW and BM, get more educated on the subject please. If you do not like this opinion of mine. then go ahead and put in 18 years of adult life in the painting field as well as applying coats since you were 5 years old up to the age of 18 on weekends and summers. THEN get back to me. My Family has been using BM paints since the 50's and SW since the very early 20th century. They used Dutch Boy, P & L, Blair-Jones for Industrial and commercial, ICI, Glidden and the other major players. Did you see Behr on the resume'? Not at all. We would have been laughed out of the assembly of sub contractors guild.
