Most of the pro painters I deal with tell their customers up front now that if they insist on Behr then the price to do the job will be higher. They all seem to run into application and coverage issues. Often they end up using far more product than estimated because the coverage is nothing like Behr claims. I had a customer bring me a can of interior Behr Premium Plus today we had to put on some quarter round we are installing along with some flooring for them. The stuff was drippy and runny with poor coverage and left a ropey finish. I'd hate to have to use it on a big project.

Most of the other complaints I head involve life expectancy. Many of the unhappy Behr customers I run into are complaining that the paint only lasted a couple of years before it needed recoated. Often the film had started peeling already. Behr is poor quality but usable on the interior. On the exterior I would refuse to use it if I were a professional painter. I wouldn't want to deal with the inevitable callback to fix product failures.
This is true. Paint sucks as a primer and primer suck as a finish coat. Why would you mix them? When you prime, you want 100% primer strength, when you finish coat, you want 100% Finish strength.

Welcome to the forum!

"Can you be more specific on how its junk? This is exterior satin mix of paint and primer"

You can do a quick search in the rectangular white box next to "search" above each page for "Behr" for more information. This will limit any further product bashing on this thread that would need to be removed. Thanks!

Paint and primer mixed into one is a gimmick. Primer serves the purpose of adhesion and uniformity of the paint. Paint serves the purpose of adding color and protection of the exterior of your home from the elements. Another words primer has one purpose and needs to be applied before paint. Paint serves a different purpose and gets applied over the primer, so how can primer and paint mixed together work?

What about Valspar Medallion? I did not see any comments in this thread. I just put a gallon on my 30X50 Garage and I did not think it covered very well, and I need more paint to finish the job. Thanks

So I gather from the comments that Ace Royal paint would be a better selection than Valspar Medallion?

If H/O insists on B#$@ especially all in one, I make them sign a waiver that I will not be responsible for coverage or longevity. And when you went to SW why didn't you look at the ProMar line. You went to the real paint stores and priced their top of the line paints, and then compared them with HD cheap paint
