Is your Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain suitable for stucco wall?

Asked by: Anonymous
The Behr response to your question says that it is not for vertical applications, yet the product description on the Home Depot webpage states, "Ideal for interior and exterior, horizontal and vertical surfaces".

Does this stain need to be sealed after to maintain its color?

Asked by: Busymom3
Hello Busymom3, Thanks for your question. No, this highly durable stain is a standalone product so it doesn't need a separate sealer to go over it. If you'd like to add extra protection to the coating, though, there is the option to topcoat it with either our No. 985 Wet-Look Sealer or our No. 986 Low-Lustre Sealer. Well wishes for your project!

1-gal. #STC-12 Sunbaked Clay Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 95.

English brick is Home Depot orange. It is hard to scrub off after 5 minutes. I think mixing the rest of the gallon with water in my sprayer may actually give me a light stain. Through, in this orange color. Not what I wanted I got the 5 x 5 starter area down to a stain after scrubbing. I wish they would add more iron oxide and less mud color. Also, perhaps it should be something you add water to. Way to much work! It should go on and look great!

Seem to come out good. Flat sheen that penetrated into the concrete. Now a month later I bought 5 gallons of the same product and color. Did all the right steps as before. Now this time it came out glossy and didn't penetrate the concrete. Looks like paint this time and not stain. I'm really bummed out. I was hoping the the product would be consistent. Waste of time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results! We followed another reviewers directions (BellaBee from 2013) and had a fantastic result! We tore the carpet up in our basement and rented a diamond blade sander to get all the adhesive off and then followed the same steps as BellaBee. It is KEY to do the proper steps for floor prep for this to turn out! After degreasin/cleaning then the etching/cleaning process I used a cotton tshirt to blot the first stain on which was Loden semi transparent. It dried quickly. Next color was Warm Shale. I grabbed another clean cotton cloth and patted it on at randaom. The last color was Chickory and I used it sparingly. We are thrilled with the floor. I ended up highlighting the cracks in our floor for interest. I let the stain in for 30 seconds and then dried brushed it. Fantastic! I also covered in two coats of Low Luster shine. We have received so many compliments on the high end look.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall very good It really looks great when first applied, and remains good looking in most areas painted except high traffic areas and high sun areas. These two areas, high traffic and high sun, need a fresh coat at least every other year. The remaining surface looks good for at least three or four years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Definitely a lot of money but you get what you pay for for sure. Take your time and read and re-read instructions. Goes on MUCH easier with a roller than a sprayer. 2 & 3 coats does best. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT a stain, NOT semi-transparent. Worst product, EVER We used this on a large concrete patio. Followed all directions. First of all, it is a PAINT, not a stain. There is nothing semi-transparent about it. It sits on top, does not permeate the concrete. And it starts flaking off almost immedately. We had it removed by pressure washer. Cost us over $1500 to stain and seal, and another $1500 to strip it off. What a hassle. Worst product ever from Home Depot. Behr should recall this. Instead, Behr censors the negative reviews on their own website. DO NOT USE BEHR.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this concrete stain! Transformed an ugly basement floor into a beauty! I love the new look! Used one of the reviews (Thanks, BellaBee) as a guide, and prepped first, then rag-rolled colors on. Besides using Loden, Warm Shale, and Chicory, I also used Water Stone and Dark Charcoal. It's important to note there are no specks in the paint as the samples show. Applied the Wet-Look Sealer which makes the floor shine and is impervious to scratching. I've slid heavy furniture around, with no scratch marks!
