Customer Questions & Answers

do i have to strip my saltillo before applying?

I have some saltillo tile that just needs to be darkened so that the ground in dirt can be blended with the tile. Can I apply this to my tile after cleaning-but-not-stripping the tile? Thanks.
Asked by: BethM
Hello and thank you for your question. "Saltillo Tile" actually refers to the color of the stain, not the surface on which it should be applied. We recommend using BEHR PREMIUM® Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain only on interior and exterior concrete and masonry surfaces. We suggest contacting your local The Home Depot for alternatives, and wish you the best of luck on your project.

this product can be used in quarry tiles ?

Asked by: carlos
Hello and thank you for your question. The BEHR PREMIUM® Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is intended for use on uncoated, unsealed concrete and is not recommended for quarry tiles. In addition, the semi-transparent finish is not ideal for use over a dark surface as the colors will not show properly. Please contact your local The Home Depot to find recommendations on alternative products, and best of luck on your project.

Why does it say under "Specifications" that "Primer Required - Yes"? Why does it need a primer?

Asked by: Terr
Hi Anonymous, Thank you for your interest in our Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain. A primer will help increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface. Please follow all label instructions to ensure proper surface preparation and application. Good luck with your project!

1-gal. #STC-13 Saltillo Tile Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
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 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor durability I applied Behr's semi-transparent stain to a new patio (cured over 60 days) I had poured 12 yrs ago. I followed all the prep as recommended by Behr. I can't imagine a better/cleaner surface to apply this product to. Again, I followed everything Behr recommended for prep and maintenance as I wanted this to last. Well it didn't last one year. Every year I have to touch it up and put a new sealer/clear top coat on it as the chipping/peeling is terrible. It's like Behr designed this product so you'll constantly have to buy more stain and sealer... Absolutly hate this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Prep and Prime I've been a floor coating contractor for over 40 years. This product will perform as promoted, but you MUST follow all the directions re. prep and priming to avail yourself of the advertised properties. In addition I would recommend a clear coat for maximum splash and spill protections. I get the best results applying with an HVLP gun, and the results can be FANTASTIC!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stain For Driveway I originally applied this stain on my driveway (2 coats) and walkway 2 years ago after acid washing and pressure washing. It went on very easily and lasted well except for a couple of spots on some new concrete that pealed off because of RV tires. I recently put on two more coats and it came out fantastic. I changed the lines in the driveway and walkway to a darker shade which looked much better than the lighted stain before. I used the English Brick on the large areas and the Natural Henna on the lines. I have pictures on the Behr - home depot website review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Semi=Transparent Patio Stain After much research, I chose to stain my patio with the BEHR concrete stain instead of painting. Since the concrete patio was already porous, I washed and rinsed the patio and let it dry thoroughly. I wanted my patio to have the appearance of large rocks instead of just the somewhat plain look of a concrete floor. I drew off patterns for the rocks using a charcoal color paint and a small fan brush used for painting landscapes. Once that was dry, I applied the BEHR primer. The primer was allowed to dry about 3 hours. I then applied two coats of the BEHR stain and allowed that to dry thoroughly (overnight). The next morning I applied the sealer, still using a roller to apply the sealer, and the patio is absolutely beautiful. I didn't move my furniture back on the patio for four days. I have had so many wonderful comments on my patio that it is unbelievable and it was not much work at all. I did change rollers at intervals throughout the process. The patio is absolutely gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite room in the house! We pretty much did everything by Behr instructions and the results are amazing! When we pulled up our carpet, the floors didn’t have glue on it. It looks like there was once a floor down that was glued, but there was no glue on the floor this time. There, however, was platters and spills of paint and product where they blew the ceiling. The small paint spots came up with the etching, a little bit of scrapping but the large spill did not, even after etching twice. We should have done the paint stripper, but we opted to sand cause it was just one large spot, not the whole floor. The cleaner and etching was a job! This product goes a long way, really. The only problem we had here on the first two sections we done was us adding to much product to the floors. The more I mopped, the more it seemed to foam up. It took a lot of cleaning before I finally got it all up. Not many will be able to do this, but I ended up getting a squeegee from Home Depot, our shop vac, and the water hose. After the product sit it allotted time, I used the water hose on low stream to clean the etching off the floor. I turned the shop vac on and tilted it in a way to suck up the water without me holding it. I used the squeegee to get it all suck up. After figuring that all out, it went by faster. We let dry the time it said, but I think we could have started bonding sooner. Next came the Behr bonding primer. We put on with a roller, EASY as painting! No issues here, let dry according to the instructions. Lastly the stain. First issue we had, not with the stain but the sprayer we got from Home Depot, it was awful. The nozzle didn’t work worth a flip. I think if we had fanned the color on, it would have looked nice, so if you are wanting the swirly look of colors, light and dark, get a good sprayer!! Not the one HD recommends or has over in the stain department. After the sprayer wouldn’t work, we just used a roller, which is fine, made the color more even. In my picture, that is 3 coats of stain. The floor we did was 20x12, 240SF. We used One bottle of etcher, one can of primer, and one can of stain. Had not been for the sprayer, we got a beautiful floor for under $100 and in only 3 days. I’ve already recommended it to several, and some are going to try it. I’m eager to see how it will weather the traffic, spills, dogs, and all normal everyday activities. I am pleased with the ease of the product and most definitely the outcome. My floor is gorgeous!
