I used this garage floor paint to create a checkered pattern in my 3 car garage. In 2007 I had painted the garage gray with a 2 part epoxy and it held up really good but I was tired of the gray color. In order to use this epoxy, I scuff sanded the existing epoxy and then washed it with a diluted concrete citrus cleaner. After completely washing and drying the floor, I let it sit for a day in order for the moisture content to dissipate. I then measured and taped 18 inch squares and painted every other square. Since I had a gray floor before, after the first coat, I could still see some of the gray so I gave it 2 coats. The contents of 1 gallon were enough to cover the 3 car garage at 2 coats with the checkered pattern. For the other remaining squares, I used the Behr Ultra White Epoxy. This color was a little harder to work with because 2 coats where not enough to completely cover the previous gray but instead I ended up giving it 3 coats and using 2 full gallons. After the 7 day wait, I drove the car into the garage and the epoxy held up really good. The only thing I did not like is that the black color gets dirty quickly, but I cant complain, after all it is a garage. :-)

If I could give it negative stars I would. After making a major time investment to follow all instructions exactly, including cleaning, etching, priming, painting and sealing over a 3 week period of time, then waiting over 8 weeks to allow curing before parking, the paint is now lifting from tires. The first problem came with the wet look sealer milking in places despite thin careful application. After speaking with Behr and trying their solutions to no avail, and then calling back only to find out stripping was the only remedy remaining, we decided to just live with the milky streaks. After finally beginning to park in garage, as soon as tires were even remotely wet, upon backing care from garage we heard a horrible ripping sound, only to find four tire spots lifted from floor. 3 months of not being able to use the garage, and now we will have to pay to have the floor stripped and professionally epoxied. Behr has simply failed the quality product test and lost a customer for life. Disgusting!!

Followed the directions to the letter. Power washed the carport, etched it with Behr etcher, applied Behr primer. Put on 2 coats of paint.,waited 2 weeks before we drove on it. Now after 8 months it's all coming off where the car tires contact the surface.Looks terrible. Absolute junk...last time I would buy Behr products. All the work gone to waste

I painted my basement floor 3 years ago and it looks like the day I finished painting, even in high traffic areas. Success with these coatings is 100% dependent on following instructions and prepping the floor correctly. I can guarantee that the guy who brought the house and had peeling paint had a previous owner who slapped a coat on to look good, but failed to clean, degrease, and etch properly. This is great paint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Run away from this product! The fact that there are five star reviews is a travesty. I purchased a house where it had been used recently, and within three weeks of closing it started to peel EVERYWHERE. Removal from concrete is expensive, imperfect, and awful. Just read the product's label! It says DO NOT use where exposed to "hydrostatic pressure." That means "the weight of water." But it's billed as "exterior" paint, perfect for pool side patios. Buy something better (which will most likely mean more expensive; this is an inappropriate price point for exterior walkway or patio paint). If you don't, it will be an expensive mistake.

Purchased this for our garage floor and our basement floor. Turned out OK on our basement floor. Our garage floor is horrible. We followed instructions exactly. We didn't put anything heavy in our garage for over a month - didn't even park our cars in it since we wanted to make sure it set and wouldn't peel up. Even two months after the application, we were still finding new spots where the paint came off. It especially is coming off under our tires. We don't even have huge, heavy cars! Now we're waiting through the winter but have to figure out how to fix it when the weather gets nicer. It'll be hard to fix just the spots since the speckling/painting will become uneven. I would not recommend this product.

I have used this paint several times with great success however something has changed. It now takes twice as much as before to cover an area and repeated coatings. The worst part is the pigments separate after product is applied to the floor so it looks streaked. I could not believe my eyes. At first I figured it was me so I stirred the paint thoroughly then put a small amount in the pan stirred it again and then almost immediately the pigments began to separate. This was product I used hours after purchase.

Did a basement re-do. Painted walls with Behr's waterproof paint over a previous coat of Drylock. Covered well and looks good. Re-painted my basement floor after thirty years with an acrylic enamel from another mfgr. Cleaned the floor, used Behr's Cleaner and Etcher to scrub it again. Put down two coats with a several-day dry time between. Project dragged out over several months, but the first areas done already are wearing through the new paint. Usage is only with an office chair with casters, and slippers or sneakers.
The rest of my house has been painted with Behr's products, sometimes more than once, with great results. Very disappointed in the basement paint. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
