Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Erice Worked great for me!
I don't get all the reviews I'm reading. I moved into a 8 year old house in 2014 and the pressed concrete patio looked like it never had any maintenance. The grey stain was gone except the edge and had zero coating. I bought the Behr low-lustre without any reviews-just looked like what I wanted and Behr name recognition. I applied it with a roller. It is milky in cracks but it goes away-you can help it along by daubing out the pools with a brush or rag. TWO YEARS later-still looks good. Since then I added on to the patio with UniLock pavers in grey and tan. After reading the reviews I took the leftover sealer and tested it-works fine. Maybe people are putting it on too thick? I'm going to buy some more today.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy I bought this product on the advice of the salesperson in thepaint department, and wish I had read the reviews first. This is quite possibly the worst product of its kind. I followed the directions, scrubbed then even pressure washed the cement in advance. I waited till it dried, then applied with a roller on the horizontal surfaces, and brushed on the vertical.
I recoated as per the directions, and left for 24 hours. I am still waiting for it to dry.
Each time it rains, the "sealer" turns milky white and washes even further away. As the area "sealed" in the entry way into the house, it gets tracked inside as well. Useless.

DO NOT BUY!
I unfortunately did not read any reviews beforehand. Big mistake. It really is not worth trying this product. I stained my concrete wall outside, waited the prescribed 24hrs and applied the sealer (both Behr products). I used a roller as suggested some areas were sort of clear and some were very milky after 3 hours. I'm going to wait 24hrs and see what happens. But I really do not expect any difference. I'm going to contact the support line on Monday when they are open to see what options i have. I hope stripping isn't the only option as that will not work for me for sure. I'm wondering if a coat of high-gloss will help but doubt.
I would not recommend using this product AT ALL unless you can live with or desire a milky, spotty look. It is too risky!!!!

This stuff is terrible. Doesn't go on evenly when using the recommended sprayer. I'm going to have to paint my patio now. Don't Buy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DrFab Milky appearance when wet
I used a sprayer to install this sealer, while my wife mitigated the pooling. We have a stamped concrete patio with many ridges and uneven textures, so water and other liquids tend to puddle. The application process was easy for me (I am a novice at this sort of thing). The product is milky-white initially, but that color did not last as it dried, and it looked nice afterward. After two applications, it produced a slight sheen though it did not discolor the concrete. This morning--two days after the initial application--it rained which gave the concrete a milky appearance. For us, this is a minimal issue, since we rarely use the patio except on sunny days, but if you intend to use the sealed area while it is wet (e.g., on concrete surrounding a pool), then you might want to select another sealer. The product was installed July 2016, so we have no idea yet when the concrete will require re-sealing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Lowen Beware- Slippery when wet
Used on 20 yr old concrete pool deck that was never painted or stained. Deck has only been power washed annually. I was concerned about traction so I mixed in Behr non-skid floor additive. Rained day after I put it down and deck became very slippery. Cannot imagine how slick it would have been without the additive. Will now have to research remedies to help avoid injuries when grandkids are getting out of pool. As for appearance, this product left the deck with noticeable color variations. Looks as if it penetrated differently in different areas. That said, it is possible (likely) that much of the coloration difference is just due to the age and wear of the concrete surface. Can't fault the product for that. Behr should, however, identify the potential for traction issues on their product label. Definitely not a good choice for a pool deck.

I would not recommend this product! I have spots that dried to a milky finish! Grr. I wish that I had read those reviews before I purchased and used this product. Now I guess I have to put the toothpaste back in the tube and find a solution! Ugh

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by hershpersh My "Go-To" Landscping Sealant
This semi-gloss waterproofing sealant is great for outdoor hardscapes and stones. I have used this on manufactured stone facades, pavers, natural stone walkways, stone porches, and river rock. It brings out the color in the substrate and the semi-gloss finish gives it a clean look. I apply this with a hudson sprayer. It goes on with a milky/purplish tint and dries clear. It is best to mist a very light first coat, let dry, then apply a wet (but not runny or puddling) second coat. If you get puddling or runs, use a chip brush to distribute the sealant more evenly in those areas or back-roll larger flat areas. Make sure your substrate is clean and dry first. I've found this to last years outdoors with no peeling or fogging.
