Answer: 
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

Answer: 
Hello Rirock,
Thanks for your question. This product can be used on various concrete floor surfaces, including steps. The bonding primer is only required for areas that will be driven on, so it shouldn't be needed in your case. Please be sure to follow all label instructions for best results. Well wishes for your project!

Hello Jj,
Thanks for your question. Yes, our semi-transparent concrete stain can be applied to a concrete patio, however, broom sweeping would only be the first step for prep. We'd also recommend cleaning the whole surface with a concrete cleaner/degreaser and etching the whole surface it doesn't already feel like 150 grit sandpaper to the touch.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 91 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pore coverage This product is identified as semi transparent and should cover 400 sq. ft. my experience was that the only way to get a semi-transparent finish, was to spray half the surface. Not only that but I had to use 2 gal. to get a very splotchy coverage on 450 sq. ft. surface. Not a happy customer. Now waiting to seal the surface, not sure if this is going to be as bad as the stain was. May 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great on brick! We have brick floors in our basement bedrooms. They have gotten worn over the years and needed a clean up. We initially tried powerwashing, but that left lines on the brick. I bought this stain and put on a thin coat with a roller (after edging the room with a paintbrush). The results were fantastic! It soaked into the brick and left a matte finish (before and after picture is glossy as the stain had not yet dried). The brick floor looks brand new! I will be applying the low-lustre sealant tonight. July 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stain Very easy to use,good coverage,Looks Highly recommend. August 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This is the worst product. It is NOT a stain. This is the worst product. It is NOT a stain. It is like a paint that peals up very easily. Covers nice but does not stain at all. When it peals up, even with just your fingernail, it leaves the concrete looking exactly as it did before it was applied. I want Home Depot to pay for the labor to remove this now. Terrible terrible product. May 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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). May 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst decison ever made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I bought this product with out reading into reviews and such, as I SOOOO wish I had... I chose my color of "stain" which was supposed to be a medium looking "tan". I get it home and open the can and I am looking at a "golden rod" yellow. I think, well, maybe it will go on different..... NOPE.... BIG....BIG MISTAKE.... I now have what looks like used School Bus paint all over my back patio... and Stain.... This is NOT and I repeat NOT STAIN... this is a PAINT....PAINT... PAINT.... I am beyond livid over this.... I can not even put down the accent color I was going to use for the edges of the patio because the PAIINT is thick... it will not take.... So, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do your research and do not be fooled.... August 29, 2016
