Had some ceiling damage in my bathroom. Hired a plaster to refinished the ceiling.

Used the premium Behr primer(in purple can) and applied 2 coats of primer. Then two coats of Behr ceiling paint. Around the edges bubbles appeared and I attempted to sand and scrape them out. The paint and primer did not adhere to the wall and I was able to tear off large sections of the paint.

It was like pulling wall paper of the wall. Called Behr made me feel like it was my fault, offer to send replacement paint. Went to Home Depot with a trash bag of the pulled off paint. The person in charge seem to want to get me out of store.

Told me that the primer did not adhere to wall gave me a can of Klin primer and told me use this, also refund my money. Got the feeling that this has happen before. Went to a professional paint store, the clerk who had 40 years of paint experience said"the number one paint complaint is Home Depot's Behr paint. He also said some of the professional painters will refuse a job if a customer wants to buy Behr paint at Home Depot.

I decided that I will use Benjamin Moore. My leisure time is more valuable then saving a few bucks at the Home Depot.

Behr paint has always peeled right off of bare drywall. As long as I can remember.

And the primer is just as bad. It is manufactured to a low price point, not a quality level.

Regardless of what consumer reports magazine says. They are liars.
