Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by curl A Wonderful Surprise!!!
Was a bit nervous during the application but it turned out to be a great rustic colour for my yard, very warm and inviting; it really uplifted the space- just what I was looking for. Easy to apply, however because of the roughness of the concrete, we settled upon two coats and it looks beautiful. It didn't spread as much as we'd hope so there's a part of the deck left undone but that's ok we have every intention of purchasing more of this wonderful stain (suggested coverage per sq ft was not quite accurate for us but I guess it all depends on the finishing of your concrete- ours was not screeded and so the rough concrete took more stain for complete coverage.) Overall very satisfied - its a great product, I would definitely recommend it to anyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cherylintexas Storm Shelter Makeover
We recently bought a house in the country which already had a storm shelter right off the patio in the back yard. It was just a big hunk of concrete and not cost effective to move. Being surrounded by pastures, we still wanted to keep it, so decided to make it a focal point. You never know when you might need to jump down into one of those! We will add perennials and herbs around it as well and make a rock garden go across the top and into the yard. I'm sure this will be long term project but at least it has a good start with color on the concrete.
I used the BEHR PREMIUM® Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain in different colors and brushed onto the concrete making a random pattern. This way, it softened the appearance of the shelter and I figured, why not add a tornado to the door too! The stain went on easily with a brush and clean up was simple. The door was metal so it took a few more coats to get the finish to show through.
It was nice to be able to use a concrete stain in an artistic way and I liked the earthy colors. Very nice. Thank you Behr!

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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Snowman Won't work on a driveway
I used this on the edges of my 6 month old driveway and 3 diamond shapes I have in the middle. I put this on 4 years ago and have had to redo it every year. It just does not stay on the concrete. Even on the edges where it doesn't get any type of traffic on it. I thought with it being a stain it would soak in and be permanent but this is not the case. This is not a good product for outdoor concrete. I would not use it again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shel Loved the effects I got
I loved this stain on my old funky cement patio. I mixed the morrocan red I think it was with a gold and first did the red then went over it with the gold kinda mottly and did the gold on the wall and highlighted a little bit of red and it looked so good! Transformed an old crummy cement patio into a much better looking outdoor patio.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1234 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.
