Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The BEHR Premium Protector and Waterproofer is an interior/exterior coating designed to penetrate the surface up to 1/2 in. This product provides a natural clear finish and has a 10 Year Guarantee. This waterproofer creates a barrier inside the surface that keeps water out but allows trapped water vapors to escape; reducing corrosion, spalling, efflorescence and freeze-thaw damage. The protection is not worn away with normal use. It protects long after the water beading is gone. Ideal for use on horizontal and vertical uncoated concrete and masonry surfaces such as: concrete block, pavers, stucco, brick, unglazed tiles, exposed aggregate concrete, sandstone and slate.

Hi Helen,
Thanks for writing in, and sounds like a fun project! At this time though, Behr does not make a product that was made to be submerged in water. Thanks again, and good luck on your project. Best, Jeanette

Answer: 
Hello Doc,
Thanks for your question. As this is a penetrating product, it needs to be applied to a bare concrete or masonry surface only. You might check with Home Depot for another brand's coating that can fit your project needs.
Well wishes for your project!

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7 Years of Aging and Still There We mistakenly used a topical sealant the first time, lasted 2 years and then power washed and used the BEHR 980 Neutral one coat for the last 7 years or so. We recently decided to reapply a new coat, power wash, and prepare so the new layer can be applied. The concrete cleaned to like new after 7 years of aging and Kentucky hot summers & icy winters with salt and cinders used and ground in. We used about 4 buckets of 5 gallon bucket size the first time that are next to impossible to get now. Great product, and this next coat or coats are driveway maintenance only for us, as we will retire soon and will be in place to make our driveway attractive and a selling point for quite some time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not use on acid stained concrete! I bought this sealer to seal my acid stained stamped concrete patio. I followed the directions to a T. No where on the jug does it say this product is not compatable with acid stained concrete. I had to completely strip my patio and reseal it with L&M dress & sealer. You must use a high VOC/ solvent based sealer on acid stained concrete! I learned the hard way. April 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by worked great Applied 10 gallons to over 2,000 sq ft of hard scape: concrete patio with slate border and concrete wall caps. Used professional grade equipment: power washer to clean and sprayer to apply. Used 2 coats. Looks great after 1 month following high heat and rain. I recommend using a sprayer not roller. I used rollers in the past with other sealers and its messy, does not apply evenly and just does not look good. I hired an experienced painter (did my house) to spray on the sealer. It was worth paying the extra money for this skill. I still saved tons $$ compared to the quotes I was getting from "professional" concrete sealing contractors. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This stuff works! Thought I had a stubborn roof leak but it turned out to be a poorly constructed red brick chimney - - it had a water penetration problem. Water was percolating through the mortar - - eventually damaging my ceiling and walls inside. This product went on easily - - 2 coats applied with an inexpensive garden sprayer - - it soaked right in - - it did not change brick color and it did not damage or discolor my asphalt shingle roofing. Since applying we've had multiple heavy rains - - problem solved. February 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the price Used the product on small backyard patio made with brick pavers. Went OK easy using roller and some brush. Applied two coats to the unsealed pavers. After more than a year later with south Florida sun and rain, payers still look great. No sign of algie, mold, etc. And pavers bead off water well and dry quickly. Compared to other more expensive sealers that only last a couple years, great value. February 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bricks Bead Water! I have bricks which have chronically had green algae / moss growing on them. I've tried a few waterproofing things in the past to no avail. I was looking for a waterproofing product I could apply with a jug sprayer and this fit the bill. I was confused if I should try one of the waterproofers in the gallon can but it seemed that with a rough brick surface I didn't want a paint-like product. I liked that it has a 10yr warranty and I'm keeping the receipt in case I need to reapply. I applied a bleach solution, pressure-washed, and waited for 3 hot dry days. I used a jug sprayer until it soaked it and surface residue showed, then used a deck brush to mop spread out the residue. I then waited another 2 days and reapplied a second coat which immediately left a surface residue but I worked it in again. The liquid goes on a milky color but disappears in an hour or so. I was going to apply a 3rd coat of wet look sealer but the rains hit before I could do that but a small area I tested didn't look much different (I think that the rough surface won't achieve the wet look). I am relieved to see that there's a nice beading of water on the surface - see photo. Only time will tell if it keeps beading and avoids the algae but the 10yr warrantee will come in handy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as easy as you’d think This is more a review of the application procedure than the product. I used an 18” roller with long handle and it still a long time. A loaded roller only covers about 8 square feet, so applying is very tedious and repetitive, and the product doesn’t spread as far as the label says (250 square feet per gallon). I used 3 gallons for about 550 square feet of my concrete driveway (broom-finished with some spalling). After a half-hour of not getting very far, I tried a sprayer I’ve used many times before for weeds, but that was a disaster. The nozzle either sprays in a tight stream that does not spread evenly, or in a fine mist that would take forever to cover the driveway. So I went back to the roller and took 2 hours to apply three gallons. Set aside lots of time for this and buy more than you think you’ll need. That said, I did a lot of research on concrete sealers before buying this, and hope it helps slow the spalling we get from winter road salt that drips from our cars. The Behr.com website says it contains octyl triethoxy silane, which my research indicates is an effective “penetrating” sealer that penetrates the top half-inch of concrete and strengthens it. This is cheaper than similar sealers available only online. Time will tell. October 22, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Product Ever - DO NOT USE I applied this product to my beautiful two-color tobacco-leaf stained concrete entry porch and it turned it a milky white. Called Behr technical support service and the person at the other end of the phone assured me it would go away after 24 hours and if it did not to reapply and that would reactivate the first coat and fix the problem. Did as suggested and the problem worsened! When I called Behr tech support a second time the gentleman at the other end of the phone (very nice and apologetic) told me I had received bad information and that the product would need to be stripped. He also indicated that this is a known problem with colored concrete though nary a word about this can be found in the application instructions. They agreed to reimburse me for the stripper (Behr does not make one) and the Behr product, which is appreciated, but stripping this product will probably ruin the acid-etch stain coat on the concrete. Extremely unhappy. October 14, 2015
