Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Portlander 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Not the greatest.
After reading reviews I purchased this product to waterproof my basement. It did go on easy and I liked the idea of being able to tint the product. I applied this throughout the basment- walls and floors.
When dried I applied a floor leveler in spots as a precursor to flooring and noticed that moisture had seeped thru this barrier on the basement floor. I was quite surprised after reading the reviews that this happened. Maybe because I used a light tint I did not notice the moisture. It wasn't until I applied a darker floor leveler that this appeared. Thought this would resolve future moisture issues. Disappointed !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 64STRAT Really good stuff, and mimimal odor
Chose this product over Drylok because of the positive reviews, and past experience with the nasty (and likely very unhealthy) smell of Drylok. This product's odor is no worse than regular paint, applies nicely, covers very well, and looks great. Really brightened up the concrete walls in my cellar.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by kt44 Behr Masonry is as strong as a Grizzly!
My basement is cold in New England winters and damp in the summer. After applying Behr masonry on the cement walls, the moisture problems have been eliminated and the white finish has weathered seasonal changes perfectly. I would highly recommend this product to any interior cement project.

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.
