Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tflier Great coverage and professional look
I had to redo a pool deck area and saw the rebate offer for Labor Day weekend so I thought good time to start. I did a small test patch with a brush and roller, didn't like the effort needed for an ok result. I looked at YouTube videos as recommended by the Behr rep at HD. I found one where as it says as, in another review, to apply with a hopper. I got a texture sprayer for about $20 at the store you get in the mail with 20% off and free flashlights, used the smallest nozzle and went on great. Need to cut in with a nylon brush and takes anywhere from 2 to 3 coats based on what you had on there previously. I do not recommend rolling as it takes 5x longer. Make sure you prep and cover anything you don't want to overspray. Understand too you are spraying part epoxy in the air, so wear breathing mask at minimum, it creeps up on you even if you don't smell it.
Only disappointment was the Behr rep said NOT to spray it on, and I actually found this as best method.
Good luck, bring some patience and definitely follow the advice not to try to put it all down with the first coat.

I used BEHR Granite Grip paint on my garage/workshop floor and the results are like a professional paint job!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lou Excellent flooring option for patios or decks at a great price
We were looking to redo our concrete patio. My wife wanted to do a small rock and epoxy finish. We looked for pebbles small enough for our use (under 1/8"), but couldn't find them at HD or landscaping suppliers in our area. I got a quote for a company to come in and finish our 13'x23 patio for $3500!
I came across this product at HD and thought we could get a similar look for one tenth the price. So we gave it a try. The first step is preparing the surface, so we rented the concrete prep tool and buffer from HD rental. It took about an hour to prep the surface, then we swept off the patio, then started cutting in. After the cut in was finished I poured the granite grip into a roller pan, using the 1/4" adhesive roller, and started rolling. The first patch went on well, however by end of the pan, most of the sand was on the bottom, and there was not much sand on the patio, only paint on the patio. I refilled the roller pan, and tried again, same issue.
Then I thought, how about if I pour a little out, and spread it out then roll it? I spread it out with a 5 gal paint stir stick, then rolled it. The sand coverage was much better, and it went faster. There was nothing in the literature about how to apply it. They should update the pamphlet with recommended techniques to apply this.
The first coat won't look great, but you can see it taking shape. I put the second coat on using the "dump and spread" method, and the finished product looked amazing. It looked just as good (I think better) than the $3500 option we inquired about. Overall, I recommend the product. It provided a professional finish and adds a great look to our patio. The pamphlet available at HD details what steps to take use the product. As I mentioned before, I wish they would tell you techniques to apply it, instead of just saying use a 1/4" adhesive roller.
I bought 6 gals (a 5 gal and a one gal) as it said 5 gal would cover 250 sq feet. I needed almost 300, so I picked up one extra gal. I end up using 5 gals and have about a gal left over for patching or repairs. Again, this is a great product, and I highly recommend it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Firerader Good patio option
We really struggled to find a concrete cover material to meet our lengthy list of qualifications. We have a brand new concrete patio which adjoins a 12 year old pool deck. Our need was for a coating which would be durable, slip resistant and would color match the two different age slabs just to name a few.
After extensive research we found this product and thought it would be the perfect fit. As with any concrete coating the prep work was the hardest part by far. Starting out with a clean, prepped surface is the key to a long lasting surface. Do not skimp on this step no matter what you decide to use.
The color options from Granite Grip are pretty good, not great. It is a one step "paint" type product not a two part epoxy which I liked. Application was just like paint for the most part no special tools or applicators used by us just brush and rollers. We've read where others used a paint gun with good results but we didn't try.
We ended up putting down two full coats over 700 square feet (8 gallons) and the sand texture was still not evenly distributed. We then went back and touched up areas with a third coat (2 gallons) trying to even out the texture. Our results were marginally better but the color of the touch up areas really shows darker than the rest.
We still have about 500 square feet of patio to cover and we know it will take ever bit of 10 gallons to do right. Even with that amount of product this is a good value compared to some other products. The key feature we really like is the slip resistance of the final product. around the pool it seems to really do the job. If it wasn't for the uneven texture I would give Granite Grip 5 stars, so far.

Was told 2 gallons would cover my porch - still isn't done and it's been 8 so far. 5 gallon bucket was $202 and peeled off as I was trying to roll it on. Home Depot said to call Behr, which I will do. Also said they aren't responsible for the specs the company give them - count on using 4x-5x times what they say. At $45 a gallon that's not a good deal!

As an experienced plasterer and sprayer tech, I highly recommend spraying this product for flawless design. 4mm spray tip in hopper gun. I have troweled this as well and it was just as beautiful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sciencemama Looks amazing
I had old concrete porch floors that were looking shabby. I saw this product and gave it a try. It looks so good that I can't stop looking at it! It makes the floor look like a brand new high end stone product. I am simply amazed. I did not use a texture sprayer and didn't seem to have any problems applying it. Now I am looking around to see if there is something else I can use this product on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 251 Really liked the finished product
Product is a little bit of a challenge to put down but the finished product was worth it. I covered a 400 sq ft concrete patio that had several foundation repair patches. The patio had been stained with a coca cola stain and the patches were bare concrete. It took 3 coats to get a uniform color, but it was worth it. The finished color, Autumn Mountain , was very close to the sample in the brochure. I used 10 gallons total. The product did fill in the hair line cracks and the rough areas around the patched spots.
Check with me in a year to see how it held up in the Texas heat.
