Question

I am getting ready to paint the exterior of my house and want to use a very good quality paint. I have heard that Behr paint is very good. What are your experiences? What brands do you recommend? Thank you! My email address is fleecer@iwon.com if you prefer to answer there.

Hi! if you use flat paint so paint a Behr premium plus satin,that kind i have been use,it good.But remember prime&caulk,remove cracked or flaking paint.Start from the top,then washing,to remove mildrew use commercial cleaner or one part bleach and three part water(renting a pressure washer).One you done rinse the house with a garden hose.Let it dry completely befor you paint.Good lusk

The top quality exterior paint is Shermin Williams Superpaint. Goes on well and lasts. Prep well before applying.

Don't use Behr paint. It is truly garbage. Pay a couple bucks more a gallon and use Benjamin Moore, Devoe, or Sherwin Williams.

My personal preference is Sherwin Williams Superpaint, next in line would be there A-100.

I used Behr Exterior Latex Eggshell to paint the front of my parent's commercial building. The problem I found with it is that on a hot day it just plain dries way too fast to paint with a brush. You can paint with a roller OK, but you have to wait for a cool or overcast day to have any success with a brush. Otherwise you end up with a very streaky paint job.

I agree. I've had bad luck with Behr paints. Wal-Mart brand is better than Behr.

A few months ago I tried to talk a friend of mine out of using an exterior walmart paint on his house, but it was free and he used it. He spent many hours of prep work( even primed) and applied the paint, to this day you can still lick your finger and wipe the paint off, as if it were chalk. I don't know what he is going to do now, pressure wash it off I guess, I sure wouldn't paint on top of it, talk about peeling right back off. I suggested a lawsuit but since it was given to him I don't know.
