Paint Chalking

As a coat of paint degrades over time, a layer of chalky residue can form and transfer onto clothes and skin.

When prepping for your exterior paint project, covering these surfaces can be challenging as paint does not always easily adhere to chalky surfaces. This may require you to power wash and apply a primer before painting.

MARQUEE Tackles Chalky Surfaces Head-On

BEHR MARQUEE Exterior's superior adhesion makes painting over chalky surfaces simpler. By eliminating the additional step of using a separate primer, just power wash the surface and apply 2 coats of Marquee Exterior for optimal durability.

How to Prep with MARQUEE Exterior vs Leading Competitor

MARQUEE Exterior

  • Power wash the surface (wait to dry)
  • Apply Marquee (2 coats for optimal durability)

Leading Competitor

  • Power wash the surface (wait to dry)
  • Apply a specialized primer (2+ coats, wait to fully cure)
  • Apply top-coat (2 coats for optimal durability)
