I'd give it an in-between rating. Better than glidden, but not quite as good as B.M. I have used it and been happy with the results.

I'm a Behr paint guy. I use their paint, textures products, and faux. If you prime and paint, you should be in good shape. Remmember, the darker the color, the more coats you have to apply. Like any other latex paint, dont rub, scrub or pick at it while it is trying to dry. Full cure is 2 weeks.

I'm sorry but now that I paint for a living and have used almost a dozen different brands of paint, I say (with confidence) Behr paint is trash and I refuse to ever buy it again.

As I paint with BM I don't think,
"did I miss anything?"
I think,
"I can't wait to paint the next section, I'm almost done and it looks great!".

As for primer I swear by Muralo 563, it's like a diamond tip drill bit.

sorry for the passion

I'll jump in here too, to offer my opinion (for what its worth). I have been a Behr user b4...but found that it didnt keep wet edges long enough for the next pass...and as Lightman mentioned...." As I paint with BM I don't think,
"did I miss anything?"
I think,
"I can't wait to paint the next section, I'm almost done and it looks great!".
..Which used to be what I have said.
I used BM on my reno and I must say...I was damn impressed with its texture and coverability. Im sold on BM...but use what the client wants...and if its a money issue (wanting less expensive paint) I'll use Behr, General or ICL.
