Sealing in Paint

Can I use Behr Water Based Polyurethane to clear coat Behr Ultra Exterior Paint? Do I even need to clear coat at all?

Hey Kevin023,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community.

Any exterior grade paint you properly apply over a surface already has properties in it to give it a long lasting finish.

In other words, any 'sealing' you do of any clear coat will be redundant and not necessary, unless you wish to waste your own time and money.

In the case of Behr Ultra, it has a lifetime warranty on its finish and anything additionally placed over it would and could do more possible harm than helping. 

Never clear coat over an existing new painted finish regardless of where it is located, provided you used the proper paint and used it as directed.
