Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by skachicfl 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).

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Duanes Not a stain and does not stick
This product is horrible. It is not a stain it is a paint that does not stick. I stained my concrete counters and this was a poor choice to use for the stain. Color is all over the place and does not act or perform like a stain should thus this is a paint. The finish will pull right off if you put tape on the surface and pull the tape, stain will not do this because stain penetrates and paint lies on the surface like this product does. Also the color is not uniform even with continuous stirring its more of a bluish color than grey. I did put a oil based urethane on top which prevents the paint from pulling off. I would not use this again.

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!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Iscottie Older home needed refreshing
We have an older home with plaster walls. We had put other paint on the walls and could not get an even flawless coat no matter how hard we tried. Over the summer we bought Behr all in one paint with primer included and we were amazed. One coat and we had beautiful color, and flawless even coats. I will never purchase another brand again. Thank you Behr you are amazing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack2015 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by MLP1974 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! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terry63 Great for lanai!
This stuff is great for re-staining your lanai. The hot Florida sun does a number on exposed surfaces and this product holds up well. This is the 2nd time we have used this and we're happy with it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
