Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really satisfied, exceeded my expectations My Portland basement had several moisture intrusion points, no water necessarily, but definitely the cement would get wet. I applied the product during fall and now that is February I haven't seen any moisture problems at all, my basement is still dry and the smell has improved a big deal. Pretty thick to apply. The most troublesome moisture point shows a yellowish stain, but that happened within hours of application, the cement was permanently moist; after a few months now, the stain hasn't increased. I would have tinted the color if I would have known that it was bright white, but I was determined to finish the project so I went ahead with white. Very satisfied. February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for the basement Behr Premium Basement Masonry and Waterproofer worked great for my basement.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic! I have a concrete block house that during a heavy rain had water seeping in were the block and slap meet below the windows. I re chalked all the windows and no change. I painted the concrete window sill and NO MORE LEAKS!!! This product is thinner then normal paint, and applies easily. It has only been a few days so I do not know the long term results, but as of today this product performed above my expectations! May 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best basement paint used on walls I bought this paint for my living room walls because I have the basement floor where my living room is located and not only is it only 1 coat but moisture won't be a problem yay!!!!! This paint looks wonderful October 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! June 27, 2014
