Project Behr Paint-Part II Premium Plus Ultra

The Behr Premium Plus Ultra line provides paint and primer in one coat, and provides superior coverage with fewer applications. Typically this line of paint is better for darker colors. This self priming paint can, in most instances, cover in just 2 coats when going over dark colors vs. 3 or 4 coat that other brands of paints need for proper coverage. For example when covering a bold color like hot pink the Behr Ultra product covered the pink in 2 coats saving time and money in material expense vs. the Behr Premium Plus product discussed in a previous posting.
