Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! Primer works great on my driveway. Hand painted the tree of life over it in their concrete paint in black. January 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by "Not for vertical surfaces" I'm painting my exterior foundation walls, which are unfinished concrete. I brought this home and almost opened it before I saw one place on the label where it said that it is not for use on vertical surfaces. It is for floors, only. I want to mention this to all readers, so I submit this note. So, I called the paint dept. Danny apologized and recommended Zinsser 1-2-3. That seems appropriate for this application. (A rating is required in order to post a note here. I did not actually use it, so I picked a rating near the average of what everyone else rated this product.) April 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 The product has durability and it;s easy to apply. Painted a sidewalk as test. For over a months it was still like new. I have used it in the garage also. It is easy to apply, dries fast and looks beautiful. I used color Tan. February 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by THIS IS THE STUFF!!!! 10 yrs ago I power washed, acid etched and sanded my concrete shop floor...applied a great quality 2 part epoxy concrete paint....worked great for about 8 years. Efflorescence (sp?) started working its way up and finally I had spots (2" to 18") starting to lift and peal...nothing I did would stop the efflorescence and lifting until this Behr primer. Cleaned the bare spots, sanded (50 grit) and then DOUBLE primed with the Behr primer. Finally recoated with 2 part epoxy paint and have not had a single bit of efflorescence or lifting. I love this stuff AND I've been using on exterior wood trim as a primer because it "seaks" out moisture and seals it. It has worked great as a primer on exterior painted cedar. Wish I would have found this primer years ago! November 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product was so easy to apply. After removing a buildup of linoleum and tile from my patio, to find that we also had to scrape off glue in order to have a clean surface to apply Behrs primer and paint. I was amazed to find how easily it was to apply, how fast drying it was and how beautiful the end result was. June 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service Easy to use on the garage floor prior to painting.....It was great as a primer and no issues with the paint itself....Definitely recommend this product.... February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked as advertised This was recommended by staff in the pant department. It went on easily and dried nicely in an hour. I'm not sure a top coat of paint was even needed. This is a good product. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Paint Adhesion Put this down on your cement floor prior to painting and you'll have a lifetime paint finish that won't peel when cleaned or when it get's wet. Perfect for workshops and storage areas. March 30, 2014
