Customer Questions & Answers

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!

Drying Time between coats

I'm using Behr semi-transparent stain and wish to put a second and possibly a third coat on the surface. How long should I wait before I apply the additional coats?
Asked by: Anonymous
Our stain soaked in/dried really quickly. I would guess 20 minutes should do it between coats. I ragged rolled my stain on so I am not sure how saturated your coating would be. Good Luck!

Can this type of paint be used on previously painted concrete that has some peeled paint surface where bare concrete is showing?
Asked by: Wes
Hello Wes, Thank you for your interest in our products. Our Semi-Transparent Stain is only designed for uncoated concrete surfaces and we would not recommend applying it to a previously painted concrete. We would recommend removing the rest of the painted concrete before applying our stain. Best regards, Kevin

Customer Reviews

1-gal. #STC-14 Water Stone Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 41.
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 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 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 4 out of 5 by from Great Product! Not an acid stain. This is a great product if your concrete floors are not smooth enough for a true acid stain. I used this color along with blue bolder to create a good looking floor. We had to prep the floor after pulling up the carpet and all the glue spots were still there with the Home Depot Floor Maintainer and concrete prep tool (watch video prior to using).
