Not resolved

I purchased paint to paint the exterior of my house. I bought the best one with primer $37.00 a gallon.

It took me all summer to do. I am a single 65 yr old woman. After 6 months it started to crack and peel. It was awful.

I wrote a complaint on the Behr page and someone contacted me. wanted me to send the origional receipt for the paint. Who keeps receipts on paint ? The man finally said he was going to send me 2 cans of the same paint.

Why the heck would I want to take the time to put the same faulty paint on again. My house looks awful.

It is cracking and peeling something terrible. I would never buy Behr paint again.

to the lady that went to home depot to buy the behr paint. All paint is a water base paint, which means water will take it off your home....since 1978 paint is a joke.

this is why the wood falls apart and stucco starts cracking and other bad thinks happen.

I have 25 years in construction and I would be honored to try and help you.. I have different options that you will like.

My neighbor bought a 5 gallon pail of Behr Deckover paint. He is in his 70s.

He painted his front porch (pressure treated) with it. Less than 1 year has gone by and it is peeling in sheets. He still has 4+ gallons left as he was planning on doing his rear deck with it. Obviously he is not going to use it again.

I called Home Depot and was told to contact Behr using the 800# listed on the can. At the very least he should be refunded for the cost of the paint.


there is NO primer in ANY paint! All that means is you can apply it to a PROPERLY PREPARED SOUND SURFACE without having to put an additional primer on.

That means either a previously painted surface (two coats) or a surface that has been primed with the correct primer! Read the data sheet and you will see what a scam this is! The BIGGEST problem is that all they have to do by their "warranty" is replace the paint. Big deal!

They already charged you 5 times what it cost to make? They aren't losing anything by giving you more! If you take that replacement paint you no longer have a warranty on it!

The warranty only applies to the paint you purchased, not the paint you were given. The whole paint industry has become as much as a scam as a used car dealer!
