12 years ago, I painted my house with Behr paints. They worked fine overall, but it was over white walls. Now, we are painting rooms again, and our latest attempt has been a nightmare.
We bought the Behr Super Duper Awesomely Best Totally Radical Ultra Premium Fantastic Wonderful Orgasmic paint with primer. I was immediately skeptical about the inclusion of primer, but thought it was worth a shot. I didn't expect much, and unfortunately was still disappointed. It went over previously primed Behr paint, same type, same sheen, etc. The walls were cleaned and prepped for paint as one should do.
Just over one week later, one of my kids scraped the wall with a plastic toy box. The contact was minor. It didn't ding the sheet rock or damage the wall in any way. However, it took off the paint, and worse, it is peeling off in sheets. There was absolutely no adhesion to the old paint. Umm, excuse me, Behr, but this is exactly why you prime before you paint. My wife was told by the HD paint rep that with this wonderful paint, you don't have to prime. Note again that it was not previously painted with oil based or some other type of paint. It was the exact same paint, but without the primer. I tried to touch it up, but it looks terrible. Plus, I have zero confidence that other scrapes and dings will not result in the same peeling. Now we have an entire room that needs to be stripped and repainted properly. The monetary expense including time to do the above because of this *** paint would have to be obscene, if you hired a painter. Behr, and Home Depot, have gotten their last dollar from me. I am so disgusted and pissed that I can barely type coherently.
And, don't get me started on their *** and infantile projectile vomit of adjectives product name...
