Hello LV,
We appreciate your question. This product is only designed for surfaces that are made of concrete, not brick. Therefore, I would have to recommend against using it on your pavers. However, you might be interested in our Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain that is good for concrete and brick: http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-1-gal-STC-22-Loden-Semi-Transparent-Concrete-Stain-85001/203939946.

Hello Smokeyjoe,
Thanks for your interest in our concrete dye. Actually, this product is only designed to be applied to bare concrete and not over any previous coatings. Therefore, if wanting to use it on the porch, I'd have to recommend removing the broom finish then etching the concrete before applying our dye.

Answer: 
Hi ThanksInAdvance,
We don't recommend applying the Concrete Dye to red brick. You will see a mixture of both the red and gray shades together, rather than the true gray shade, so you may not be happy with the outcome. It's best to apply the Concrete Dye to bare concrete for the best color representation. If you'd like to change the color of your brick pavers completely, I recommend using an opaque Read More
Hi ThanksInAdvance,

It's best to apply the Concrete Dye to bare concrete for the best color representation. If you'd like to change the color of your brick pavers completely, I recommend using an opaque floor coating, like our Solid Color Concrete Stain, which can be viewed here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-1-gal-Deep-Base-Solid-Color-Concrete-Stain-83001/100200359.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by THIS IS PAINT - NOT DYE This product is not a dye. It is a paint. It adheres to the concrete, but does not penetrate it. We followed the exact instructions for use of this product. The finished result was beautiful and we were very pleased. However, the first time a work boot shuffled across the floor, a blister formed. When we rubbed the blister, the dye (paint) peeled right off in a large section. We scraped another section intentionally to see if the entire floor would do this, and of course it did. Behr was contacted and agreed that the product should not be peeling and that it sounded like we had followed the instructions but still suggested user error. They offered to send us more product to repair the now bare spots. We will be peeling the rest of the product off the floor (shouldn't be too hard) and starting over with something else. I'm very disappointed. September 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Did not live up to the brochure color The color of the paint applied to the concrete did not match the color shown in the brochure. Followed the instructions, cleaned the concrete floor and applied the dye. The color in the can seemed different from the brochure. I thought this would be corrected once applied to the concrete floor. The color was no where to that of the brochure color. I am very disappointed with the finish and quality. I have used other THD paint for concrete floors and have been very pleased with the result. This one fails to live up the brochure color and my expectations. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Upgraded Patio We bought 1 gallon + 1 quart to cover our patio. Around 500-600 sqft. The product itself is very affordable and easy to apply. We first prepped with an etcher and finished it with 4 coats of the Wet Coat Sealer ( A 5 gallon bucket was $120 and we ended up using about half). We spread it out over a few days, since everything needs time to dry in between applications, and the entire process took less than 8 hours. May 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Paint not dye This product is paint with all the disadvantages of a painted surface. This is NOT a dye. The look is decidedly different than that of a stained surface and as only one color was used the finished product looked cheap, spotty and decidedly more opaque than stains. The Behr sealer that needs to be used with this dye also looks cheap and very plastic, amplifying the spottiness and cheapness of the look. 3 days of hard work prepping the concrete down the toilet, all because of a poor product. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money We bought this product to stain our 500 sq. ft. patio. After cleaning and prepping as recommended, then applying the stain it started to flake off. Call customer service and they advised i clean off the areas flaking with a pressure washer and follow the same steps to apply the stain again and it continues to flake off. Don't waste your money. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Concrete dye I actuall went to get another product and came across this one. I read the directions fully and bought everything I needed for the project. In my opinion dye looks beautiful, and am happy with the product. Only complaint is product does not cover as much sq as claimed July 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Prep, prep and re prep concrete I did alot of research prior to my projectand bet 95% of those with bad reviews didn't properly prep floors before applying. It is time consuming but if yourconcrete is not ready to accept adye or stain results will suffer After powerwashing ,scrubbing, acid washing the floor was finally pourous enough for the dye. This part was easy but make sure your floor is completely dry! I used a 3/8 roller applied thin coat and was very concerned as very little color showed , 2 hours later coat 2, and next am final coat . Waited 24 hours and sealed with solvent. Based sealer. It looks amazing . If you prep right and remove all previous stain, sealer etc. The dye part is simple May 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Peeling and chipping away after using all the behr products for prepping dying and sealing, this product peals off with the smallest amount of friction. I used masking tape on the floor to paint my baseboards and the tape stripped the entire finish. this is NOTHING like stain. it does not penetrate the pores of the concrete, it is a more vulnerable version of paint.
