Behr Marquee Paint Reviews

By on June 8, 2013 in Product Feedback

Behr announces Marquee, a new line of paint for contractors:

“The MARQUEE product is our most premier paint that delivers best-in-class performance and the ultimate in dirt resistance, ensuring exterior surfaces look freshly painted longer with reduced fade,” said Colin Jaffe, senior vice president of operations for professional products and services at Behr. “MARQUEE paint remains looking beautiful and luxurious, even under extreme weather conditions, allowing a professional to increase customer satisfaction and reduce the number of future repaints required—which in turn increases business efficiency and profitability.”

Not a one coat coverage. I followed the manufactures instructions regarding roller nap. Trim is 2 coats, if you apply it really heavy to cover the wall it runs, if you go over it too much with roller the paint comes off the wall. It dries out fast on your brushes and very thick paint. Not with the money. Going back to BEHR Ultimate.

Marquee Semi-Gloss Exterior

I love Behr products and always used them in our projects. Also, we had used the interior eggshell marquee paint and been very satisfied. We invested in the exterior semi-gloss paint for a beadboard porch ceiling. WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED! I'm not sure we would have taken on this project if we thought it was going to need two coats! We used good brushes, an "approved" marquee colour and heavy coats but it is still not one coat coverage. I am frustrated and angry. The paint is also very expensive. I had read reviews of the exterior marquee paint on Homedepot.com but chose to ignore the poor ratings - regret that I did not heed the warnings.

This is NOT a 1 coat paint. I got a rich orange colour and it took 4 coats to cover a light beige. I used Purdy rollers and saturated the roller as per the instructions on their website. I went back to Home Depot for more paint as I ran out after one wall and got them to colour match it into CIL Duo which worked perfectly in two coats. Was also twenty bucks cheaper. Won't be using Behr again

Chips Within 8 Months

First off, this is not a one coat paint. Second, it chips away after 8 months. I scraped our front porch prior to applying and now see cracking and paint peeling away in many locations. Like their indoor paint, but they need to make a better outdoor paint.

Not worth it

I am so disappointed in this paint!! I had a small room with a light blue gray color and wanted something that would cover in one coat...this paint was not it. I have worked on paint crews before and should have followed my instinct and gone with two coats of a less expensive paint! This paint streaks badly and now will have to purchase other paint to cover it up. Twice the work and three times the money!! Will not use again!!!

Sadly after reading all these comments wish I would of looked at this sight before buying this paint. Definitely not a one coat painty. What 2 gallons should of covered took a little over 3. After the competition of our project which was a couple weeks later when hanging things back up the paint would chip when anything would touch it. Would definitely not recommend this product what so ever. I love all the other Behr products just not this one

very disappointed

I have had very good results with Behr paints but the Marquee is a complete disappointment. The paint is not a one coat paint like they claim nor is it fade resistant. One and a half years later the paint is now two different shades from where the sun hits the house. I would not buy this paint again.

When used as directed, especially the part that to guarantee a one coat coverage you need to use the Marque colors (not the normal Behr colors) this did cover in one coat. It was outstanding.

Hated it - like putting putty on my walls. LOVE Behr Ultra!

I have used Behr interior paints (including Behr Ultra)for years and been very pleased with the results. However, that is not the case with Behr Marquee. Even thought the color on the wall was very close to the Behr Marquee shade, the coverage was not good, in fact not as good as previous experiences with Behr paint. I will not be using this product again.

not a one-coat paint

I recently used the marquee paint. It is definitely not a one coat paint! I wrote to the company as they claim this is guaranteed. I feel for the cost of the paint they should refund for making a claim that is not true.

Disappointed

I recently bought interior Marque paint and I have to say I am a bit disappointed. I's not a one coat paint as explained to me at Home Depot, why? When trying to go back into an area I had previously painted with in the last 5-10 minutes it either got thick and left visible brush marks or if you did so with the roller it would pull the paint off the wall somewhat. I had hoped to complete my project in one day, but I feel the need to allow areas to dry thoroughly to sand to do retouch that should have never happened. I have used the Behr primer and one that originally came out a few years ago and I find I prefer that product over the Marque.
