Easy to apply and covered well

Pros
Easy Application
Good coverage
Cons
Best Uses
Comment:
I painted my house 2 years ago. Using a darker color, I rolled the paint without priming. This paint covered easily and saved time over separate priming. It has performed well so far, with no fading or peeling.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Too thin

Comment:
I bought a can without reading the reviews. It's too thin. I'm using a professional brush lightly loaded and I still had drops falling off. Some of the drops were tiny, which is a good indication that the paint is thin and doesn't have enough surface tension. In all but the thinnest coats I had paint running down my door frame. It will take three coats to obtain a thick finish. Kilz 2 is thicker. I'm going to try to return for a different brand of paint.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I painted my back door and the frame two weeks ago. I was concerned about the drying time and whether the paint would remain sticky even after it had dried. <br /><br />It went on smooth. I had plenty of time to paint without leaving brush marks. I left the hardware off and the door open for about three hours and was happy to see that the paint didn't come off where the door meets the frame (after I closed the door). <br /><br />This is the first time I have painted a door. It was so much easier than I expected. I'm very pleased with Behr Exterior Semi-Gloss paint.
