Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wx4sno Excellent concrete stain for exterior basement
I bought this to stain our exterior basement walls which are concrete blocks coated with a layer of plaster "mud" which is basically concrete stucco. While the stucco helped to cover up the concrete block, there were so many discolorations across the surface of the stucco that it just didn't look good (see before and after pics attached). So I bought both the Behr Concrete Bonding Primer No. 880 and applied one coat of it, then waited about 18 hours and applied the stain. To give some contrast to our house, I opted to do a computerized color-matching of one of the samples in the store...slate gray #6695. The result is absolutely amazing! This really goes well with our gray siding and black/gray shingles. The stain went on well and we only needed one gallon. I highly recommend!

This completely transformed the appearance of our driveway. It covered up discolored and old concrete, making it look brand new. It definitely refreshed the look of our home. I would highly recommend this product for new and old concrete. We had an area of older concrete on the driveway that fed into newer concrete. After applying the stain they look uniform. We used the Santa Fe color and it was very rich and vibrant. Also, clean up and application was very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky7 CONCRETE STAIN LOOKS GREAT ON PATIO AND WITH LESS SUN GLARE.
I applied the Behr Concrete Primer #880 first then applied this Behr Concrete Stain tint base white #800 on my 2 patios. The job was easy and painless. I used paint pads on extensions for both. It's been 2 months and the adhesion of the stain looks good and the color looks great. Job Background: the covered patio is 38 years old and the uncovered patio is 4 years old. Neither was discolored by old stains.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DavidGojira Not a true stain. It is really a paint....
It was easy to apply. However, it is not a true stain. A stain does just that...stains, or is absorbed, into the surface you are staining. Paint, such as this product, just covers the surface. And how do i know that? After my full third day, I hosed down the surface with regular hose flow. I did not power wash. And to my dismay, a small 2" x 2" area came off. My concrete has never been painted and is 17 years cured. This product, because it is already peeling, seems ok for a patio or sidewalk. And because of that, I rated it fair. But not convinced for a driveway.
I hate to think what is going to happen when I roll my truck through it in two weeks. I want a product that works relatively quick. This product has too much wait time.

My back porch was plain concrete and I wanted to add very expensive mexican saltillo tile slates. A friend suggested Behr concrete stain and sealer. Home Depot made color tinting a breeze. I was very happy with how easy it was to apply and how it realistic and professional looking it was afterwards. Product began to fade 6 years later but reappling Behr product was a snap. I was very satisfied with how long the product lasted especially with our Southwest summers!! I will continue to purchase these products, use these products and recommend Behr to anyone who will listen. Thank you Behr for reliable and reasonably priced product!

Excellent outcome in staining 250 sq. ft. bare concrete patio. Overall application and coverage was excellent, applied color is true to Behr brochure color sample chip. Longevity/durability of the stained surface is unknown as I just completed the project. Be certain to DO PROPER PREPARATION:
I used both Behr 'cleaner/etcher' and 'clear bonding' agent prior to applying the colored stain - don't bypass these steps, preparation is the KEY to a successful outcome. Using both of these prep; products is relatively inexpensive and easy to do.
Color: Note, Home Depot cannot 'custom tint' this stain - you need to select a color from Behr's standard color chart in the literature. Also, you cannot buy the small 8 oz. sample jars - only Quarts are available.....be certain of your color before purchasing.
Coverage: I applied "Light Rattan", it's both neutral and a relatively light color - required 2 coats to achieve complete 'solid color' coverage.
This is an excellent product, but the term 'stain' is in my mind a misnomer here - you are really applying a specially developed type of paint product to a somewhat 'sealed' surface (if you use the bonding primer). My guess is this product will work well for my moderate foot traveled patio....I'm not sure I'd want to rely on a product like this for a heavy use area or for a garage floor, etc.
Before/After pic's to follow shortly.

We have used Behr products for every home we have had for over 40 years . Behr has every type of paint or stain you could possibly need. The color choices are endless and the durability is beyond compare. We have 18 large concrete columns around our home plus many concrete blasters and over 30 yrs we have not had to restain them for any other reason than changing the color. No one wants constant maintenance on large projects and Behr products provide lasting results. We would never consider any other brand. We are more than satisfied ,why change what works and has proven itself. We highly recommend Behr products.
