Commenting on Behr Paints


Im not into "brand wars", but I have used Behr paint and I think it will get the job done. But if your looking for a good quality, less problematic paintjob you should really consider Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore products. Yes, the price is ridiculous, but I assure you....you wont be dissapointed. P.S...some of these responses should be disreguarded...opinions are like***holes- most stink

Well, now, that's your opinion isn't it
:D




Personally and professionally, I enjoy hearing and reading other professional and DIY opinion's
They don't have to agree with mine
I think it's good to have a free-flow of ideas, even contrary ones

I don't think any opinion posted here should be disregarded
Even yours paintguy
lol

Which posts do you feel should be disregarded and why?

Commenting on Behr Paints


When i was growing up we had a paint store in town that sold dutch boy i have never heard you guys say anything about it. I assuming it must not be crap like behrs or you guys would have already trashed it. But then on the other hand i'm assuming its not as good as sw or Bm.

Commenting on Behr Paints


I have a question about paint? I just textured my living room ceiling and primed it with Kilz 2 and then painted it with behr flat white ceiling paint.I did two bed rooms before I did the living room.
The bed rooms turned out pretty good but this living room did not turn out so good.
I can see shadows from the joist's which I am sure I just have to put up with but there are areas where it looks like the paint just did not cover good.
The question I have is what paint should I use? And is there any thing That would help hide the shadows.
Does BM have a good ceiling paint and would it hurt to just go ahead and just paint right over the behr paint?
Thanks Doug

Commenting on Behr Paints


I'm getting ready to paint, so I've asked a couple friends who are pros what they recommend. To answer your question, o far, I've heard the following

Behr = garbage
Benjamin Moore = Good quality
California = a little better than BM
Sherwin = far and away the best of the recommendations I've heard.

Again, I have not used any yet.

To answer the original question. The only people who like behr is consumer report magazine.

Behr works great on textured walls. The paint is usually just the right thickness.

Commenting on Behr Paints


I've used Behr since the big box came to town about five years ago. I've not used the exterior but I have used the interior on 5-6 jobs and have been very happy with the results. It's thicker, so spraying may not be so hot, then again I wouldn't know because I don't spray, but I can say it rolls nicely and brushes equally as well. I think it's a better deal for the customer and the DIY because it covers well and the price is right. I've used SW paints that I thought was garbage-no experience with BM.

Commenting on Behr Paints


I have used :
Ben Moore..Good Paint
MAB...Good Paint
But....I like Behr. It has always covered for me in no more than two coats. I had to paint a bathroom once with 4 coats to get an off white to cover an off white with SW. I know alot of pros who like SW. I believe all manufacturers make decent paint. Just not every type they make. It also depends on what base you are using. Typically if it starts with a pastel base it will cover better because it has more titanium dioxide (white) in it. The medium and deep bases have very little in them other than colorant added, and sometimes the colorants themselves aren't good at covering.

I'm not a professional painter, but I've painted all rooms in two houses with Behr and I like it. I've only used their interior flat enamel, but it works great for me, dries hard, and is easy to clean.
I've not only painted these houses, but lived in them, too. The Behr paint has really been impressive 6 months down the road when you're scrubbing off scuff marks.
I used BM in a previous house and liked it, but got a lot of splatter I don't get with Behr. My builders of both those houses used SW, but I'm sure it was their cheapest grade, so I won't develop an opinion of the company based on that junk.
I doubt Behr would spray well as it's thick, but that doesn't matter to me.
