Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shylo57 Changed my dark moist basement into a usable space
I love this product. I was hoping to clean up the basement and make it less damp but I was suprised to find that it made it dry. Although the prep time was very long and tedious, it was well worth it. My preping properly which included regrouting lots of the mortar between the bricks, it was well worth it to do it right. I now have a very usable dry basement that I don't fear to go into!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimg9453 Looks Great
The application instructions were very good and I tried both a roller & a 4" brush to apply to my block basement walls. I found that I got better coverage filling the nooks and crannies of the porous block surface with the brush. The first coat took a little longer and required more effort than the 2nd coat. As the directions state, a 2nd coat was necessary for full coverage and good color. It also took much less effort and gave more coverage. I had some minor cracks that were filled in and visibly disappeared after the application. The odor was hardly noticeable and was completely gone the next day. I started in one corner and am working my way around the basement. The completed sections are brighter, easier to keep clean and are a major improvement in the appearance.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandymanD Great but very thick
I have used this in several areas. It worked great in an underground basement, although it took 6 coats to finally stop the water penetration.
I have also used it to paint my stucco home. The material went on quite easily and with 2 coats, it looks like new several years out.
The biggest challenge is that it is really thick, think frosting and you get the idea, particularly on a cold morning. Don't try to stir it to mix in the pigment, you will be all day. Every day I was planning to paint, I took it to my local home depot to shake it. Never had a problem that way. It is really hard to roll on and I couldn't imagine spraying it, even though the directions say you can. I used a brush, which took a long time, but it seems very durable so it was effort well spent.
I have also used this on wood and it works but it takes several coats, since wood is porous. But once I was done, it was really water proof and looked great.
Finally, the custom color selection is pretty extensive, but don't expect every possibility. Deep colors are just not possible and the finish is totally matte, but very smooth to the touch.

Behr Premium Basement Masonry and Waterproofer worked great for my basement. The guy at home depot recommended this for my basement job and so far no leaks. Works great. I will recommend this paint for all your basement waterproofing jobs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nehns Excellent Easy Coverage, Minimal Smell
My husband and I purchased this to basement waterproofer to coat the walls in our home built in 1978. Unlike previous experiences in other homes using Drylock, this Behr had a very minimal smell making it much easier to do this project on our own. When purchasing this, the gentlemen at Home Depot noted that the price difference between this and Drylock was minimal, but that the Behr quality was much superior. He noted that Drylock hasn't updated their formula in the last 30 years and that Behr has much better technology. I couldn't agree more. We were really impressed with the ability to tint the color of the Behr paint and ended up going with a nice shade of light grey. The application of the paint was easy and the coverage was great. The can noted that you could apply it to slightly moist surfaces which was a relief because we did have a small area were the cinderblock was already moist. We applied two coats and wow, what an improvement over the bland cinderblock! I would definitely recommend to anyone that has a moist basement.

We were at our wits' end when we came across BEHR PREMIUM® Basement & Masonry Waterproofer. We seriously couldn't have found a better product! Our tiny cracks in the foundation were seeping water every time we had a bad storm and this totally did the trick! We can't thank you enough, BEHR!
