Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 I hate this product Yes I skimped on value, instead of buying acid stain, I went with the Behr Semi-Transparent Stain. I stained all the floors in my house with it; I love the color, but almost immediately it started peeling. Now after living on the floor for three months it looks pitiful. Yes, I followed all instructions and yet it didn't matter. I have over 25yrs experience in painting and construction and in those years I have used products that didn't live up to what it said it would do and this is one of them. I will never use this again for my personal use or for any customer. I will also steer anyone I see away from this product. April 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than acid stain. This is a great product. If you are creative you can make your concrete look like natural stone. You have to take multiple colors, starting with a lighter color as a base then add darker colors with a sponge. You can make veins and ridges that look like natural stone. finish with a tooth brush and sprinkle black stain at the last by putting some black on the tooth brush then flick on to make tiny black spots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by As Good as Surface is Receptive I was concerned about all the negative reviews for ALL brands of concrete stain. I have a brushed (rough surface) covered exterior patio that I stained with the Behr product last week. Sprayed it on with the recommended sprayer available for $20 at Home Depot along with the stain. Results appear excellent. If you have a very smooth concrete surface I doubt you will have results as satisfactory. July 5, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Garbage, Much better products available Bought this stuff after talking to the sale people and reading some of the reviews. There were not as many reviews as now. I used it to "stain" my new 3 week wet cured Kitchen counter tops. They came out beautifully and with the wet look sealer were breathtaking. 6 week later, my wife put a cold dish from the refrig on it and when it was picked up the "stain and sealer" came up with it. What I saw was bare concrete. This is not stain as described, it's PAINT. Had it been called Paint as it is Home Depot would still own it. I could have and should have just got some wood stain and stained to suit then sealed it. I would have gotten a better job. August 30, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I will defend this product First, let me agree with several reviewers that this is NOT a stain, but nor does Behr call it such, (read the can!). Here's what this product did for me. My home is 32 years old. When it came time to replace the carpet and vinyl with finished concrete floors, I was confronted with a disaster of ancient carpet pad glue, paint over-spray/footprints, and vinyl tile adhesive. Almost every inch was covered in something. I attempted to remove these with stripper, but it would have cost me $100's to remove it all. In the end, I punted and put this product right over the top of everything I couldn't get up. After two years of abuse, it has chipped up in places, but I also get a lot of compliments on my floor. If you're looking for an urban industrial look, this product it great. If you're looking for perfect floors, invest in acid stain. My only complaint is that I don't see the colors from the kit sold separately. That may be the only scam. By the way, contrary to the instructions that come with the kit, I HAVE had success reapplying this dye over the top of a previous treatment. This has allowed me to repair areas where the dye chipped off over time. If I can freshen up this finish every 2-3 years, I'm OK with a few chips. I definitely recommend this product as a way to give concrete a stained look on the cheap. September 17, 2013
