Customer Questions & Answers

Can I appy this to stucco exterior wall with hairline crack (water is seeping inside my window). Or would you recommend another product?

Asked by: Nick
No paint is going to stop water seepage. I would suggest using hydraulic cement to repair cracks, let it dry completely and then use a waterproofing paint. I live in a very old house with a cement block basement. I've repaired many cracks over the years and then painted with a waterproofing paint. Works well but nothing is perfect and foolproof. I check all areas like that and usually need to redo in 3 to 4 years. Depending on the amount of moisture you get or where it comes in, you might have to do more often.

Is this an Odor Blocker Also?

I was thinking of using Kilz Oil Based Primer and Sealer because it has an Odor Blocking trait. Does this block odor also?
Asked by: BigBern
Although this is not specifically an odor blocker, I did notice an improvement in the basement air after using it. A very subjective of a thing but worth mentioning.

Can you use on a basement floor, getting a little seepage in 2 small spots?

Asked by: Mary
Just got off the phone with the Manufacturer. Behr does not recommend this product for floors. Walls only. -Jon.

Can this product be applied using a sprayer?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. I sprayed this product with a Graco 495 with a 517 tip on full bore. No problems, worked like a champ. Spray product on and backroll with a 3/4 nap. Didn't even need a brush. Spraying this product is my preferred choice for this product... pressing a 9" inch roller into concrete all day gets old real quick.

1-gal. #BW-54 Steely Blue Basement and Masonry Waterproofer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Appearance and Adherence Applied to unpainted dark gray cinder block walls to brighten appearance of basement After a month, it looks fine. Did not use primer. Brushed on heavy first coat to fill in pores; this was essential to obtaining good coverage in two coats. Applies smoothly, but allow plenty of time--especially for first coat. Paint is very thick and difficult to stir. I bought a gallon at a time, so HD could put paint in shaker shortly before application. Basement is dry, so cannot judge water blocking ability. No bad smell. Good appearance and adherence. HD Memorial week rebate of ten dollars per gallon was a nice added incentive. I'm a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough paint I didn't do a whole lot of surface prep for a clean are block basement wall. Scraped it with a stiff brush and put on 1 thick layer with with a cheap brush with a few touch ups afterward. Some of the block was very slightly damp from condensation and it was no problem to paint over it. I just put a fan on it and it dried in no time. It was easy to apply, went on easily but not too drippy either. After a week or so I tested the adhesion with a wire brush and it took a lot of hard scraping to get through the layer of paint. It cleans up and touches up easily. There was a very slight ammonia smell but I had no problem painting indoors for hours with this paint. Its great if you can ventilate the area but it does not smell strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works to waterproof basement walls IF you follow directions Surface must be clean and dry - any moisture or efflorescence and it won't adhere, no paint will. You also need to solve leak source - paint won't stop a flood. I used it on a leaky basement laundry room. 1st redirected downspouts and graded soil away from house. Then cleaned interior bsmt walls with UGL etch. Spent 2 weeks with dehumidifier drying out walls to bone dry. Skimmed with Sacrete surface bonding cement and let dry completely (another 2 weeks). Two coats of Behr waterproofer and basement has been dry for a year - had been damp for 20! Take your time, follow instructions, and this is a great deal. BUT you need to solve your leak source whether drainage/grading or water supply/downspout. Wife wanted it tinted slate blue (over my objections) and must admit she was right, color looks good. Also have used this under foam board insulation when finishing basements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Finally I don't have puddles on the floor of my Michigan basement every time it rains or the snow melts . I applied 2 coats to the walls with a large brush due to the stones. It was an easy Saturday morning . No mess, stays where you put it. Dries quickly and no smell. That afternoon we had an unexpected down pour and not a drop made it through.

We used Behr Basement & Masonry Waterproofing Paint for a very difficult application. The floor was a crumbling concrete with a great deal of dust that just kept coming up, regardless of how much we scrubbed it. There was not enough time or money to go through the process to correct the issue, so we crossed our fingers and painted over the mess. This paint rescued us from our problem with flying colors. The floor now looks wonderful and more than paid for itself in time and performance. It was easy to apply an covered much better than we expected, given the less than desirable condition of the floor! Behr B&M surpassed our expectations and after a month, it still looks brand new. Thank you so much, Behr!
