Behr Granite Grip does come out looking nice but it isn’t the easiest to apply. The direction call for you to roll on the first coat noting that it may not cover and is mainly a sealing coat. So why not have another can for that. When I was trying to roll this on it left much of the granules in the tray mostly absorbing the moisture. After a few square feet of this I decided to pour the mix on the area and used the rolled to spread it out with much better results. After about 4 hours I applied the 2nd coat in the same manner coming out with great results. Very happy with this but it did take 2 gallons for my porch. The porch had reddish pavers and paint prior to this and 98% was gone. Only a small area the red did still bleed through and will need touching up. When I resurface the walkway I’ll touch up that area. Over all it came out great I’m impressed and can’t wait to finish the rest.

This was the worst Behr paint we have ever bought. We painted a porch with it and it 4 gallons to cover it. Will never buy that kind again!!! We even called the company and all they said was to put it on thicker.

The one thing I really liked about this paint is that is there is no way anyone should be able to slip and fall down if walking on a floor with this paint.
What I did not like is that it was very difficult to put the product on the floor. It did not roll very well, and yes I did use the specified roller cover. The paint does not cover all that many sq feet because it is so thick. The temperature was above 70 degrees, so not cold, it was shaken and stirred very well, but coverage was minimal. But as I said if you are looking for a seriously non skid coating, this is the product to use.
In our case, we let it dry a few days and instead of purchasing additional Gripper paint to go a second coat ( another 2 gallons) as it recommends you do, we covered with a different paint without the non skid material. While the Gripper paint took two gallons to put down 1 coat and it did not coat very well, the third can using the same brand but without the non-skid covered in less then 1 gallon. Only use this product when you need a seriously non skid surface, otherwise I would not use it.

We followed the Pro counter instructions to the letter and the product ended up washing down our drains and creating a clog in our draining system. Don't use this product, even after following instructions you will definitely be sorry.

We have a inclosed screen porch used Gliden porch paint in past ,becuase that's what previous home owner left.Went to Home Depot to buy more since its been about 3 yrs and floor needed a fresh coat.They don't sell it any more,the sale guy in the paint dept. talked me into the Behr granit grip and told me how important the prep was when using this product.So after days of scrapping,sanding ,caulking and washing, I was ready to paint.The stuff is very difficult to use,first 3-4 rolls go ok then you have the equivalent of beach sand in tray,so would add more out of can to tray ,stir same thing keep happening,like there isn't enough liquid.Yeah the first coat didn't cover well but can said it wouldn't,looked almost translucent.waited did second coat still looks horrible,
didn't cover white spatter drips from doing walls the white caulk or where I sanded it down.So after spending$80. On 2 cans ,a week in working on it,I'm trying to find a gal of Gidden to cover this mess!
Just saying I'm not happy at all with this Behr product and I usually swear by Behr that's what the interior/ exterior is painted with.

Working with this stuff right now, you better plan on using twice the amount that is recommended on the back of the can. It would be fine for small areas but way too expensive for anything over 25 square feet per gallon. Used over 5 gallons on my front porch, looks ok but for the $200 I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. First time I've ever written a review on anything online, but definitely stay away from this, the video is very misleading. Used the recommended roller and let each coat sit approx 5 hours.

I am so glad I didn't read the reviews before purchasing, because it's too expensive to throw money at a 3 star product. However, I have used this product on two projects, 4 months apart, and will use it again if the opportunity presents.
Other reviewers have said that this is hard to apply, and I really don't think it is. GG is DIFFERENT to apply, but it's not hard.
1. Wear shoes/boots that you are OK with never wearing in public again. (Plan on picking concrete specks off your shins for a couple of days after.)
2. PROTECT YOUR HOUSE, or whatever your project is attached to. There will be spatter at least 8 inches up. (I skimped on this step the first time, and spent some quality time with skin-melting chemicals on clean-up.)
3. I found that trimming the edges with 2 coats of GG using a 4 inch bristle brush BEFORE painting the surface results in much better uniformity. (Use an old brush, because it's going in the trash after this project is over.)
4. Paint tray? Rookie move; dump it straight from the can.
5. The first coat looks alarming; just ignore it and keep your eye on the prize.
6. Plan on 3 coats if you want perfection.
7. If your project is any larger than 50 square feet, just buy the 5 gallon bucket. (Also, if you're not adding color, have them put it in the paint shaker anyway. This is a super-thick slurry, and a pain to stir well.)
8. Remove your paper/painter's tape with a razor blade, then you'll get a nice, clean edge, without tears, and less chance of bits-n-pieces of tape ruining your masterpiece.
I'm an out of shape, forty-something mom. If I can do it...
