Hello KimKim, Thank you for your interest in our paint. Yes, our paint can be used on a previously painted surface as long as the current coating is still in good condition. Best regards, Kevin

Can it be used on drywall

Asked by: Lona
Hello Lona, We appreciate your question. This product is only designed for concrete, masonry, and stone surfaces, not drywall. You might consider using one of our interior latex wall paints instead, such as the Ultra Interior paint: http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-Plus-Ultra-1-Gal-UL160-15-Bone-Interior-Eggshell-Enamel-Paint-275001/202877363. Please be sure to follow all label instructions. Well wishes for your project! -Joshua

Can you use a airless sprayer to apply?

Asked by: JonF
Hi JonF, Yes, the Basement and Masonry Waterproofer can be applied with an airless sprayer. We recommend using a .023"-.027" tip (no filter). Happy painting! - Sara

We have seepage in our existing basement walls. In order for this product to work, what do you recommend for prep work?

Asked by: Jill
Hello Jill, If the basement walls have an active water leak or any cracks, then they would have to be repaired before using our product. Then we recommend cleaning the surface with soap and water. Once dried, then our product can be applied. We recommend applying 2 coats. Best regards, Kevin

1 gal. #BW-55 Nordic Sky Basement and Masonry Waterproofer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.

I used gallons of this paint in this and another color to waterproof the unpainted exterior old porous brick walls of a house in a coastal flood zone. It goes on easily with a brush and the 2nd coat (recommended) goes on much easier/quicker. The paint is thick and creamy and cleans up easily with soap and water. I am happy with the prompt delivery to my home of an Internet order, the product and the application, and time will tell if it really does waterproof the exterior walls. It appears that it will as it filled pits and cracks well with good thick coverage. It dries quickly and is available in many colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance and easy application! We purchased an older home with a leaky basement, and have tried a few different products to seal the walls. One waterproofing paint was so thick and sticky it was like painting with thick maple syrup. The second one didn't cover well and the smell was awful. I started to think we were going to have to hire a contractor if we were ever going to have a dry basement. After some serious frustration and quite a bit of money spent, we tried the Behr waterproofer. What a difference! The paint went on smoothly without any drag at all, even over some rough areas where the wall had been textured with sand. The coverage was great. It has been on the walls for a couple of months now and no water or moisture yet! Very pleased! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best thing we've found! 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!
