Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DMan Fantastic Product!
As a Contractor I was looking for a way to create that mottled look of an acid-based stain(of which I'm not sure you can find anymore in Ca.)and having used Behr Products for years decided to try the Solid Concrete Stain. Well look at the photos! Product was applied to faded colored concrete with a few calcified and eroded surface areas. Entire area was prepped(power washed, etched, rinsed, neutralized, power washed again)which is key, and allowed to dry. Stain was then applied in several thin coats using 4 colors from the Behr chart. This product is thin, it's not paint so do not apply as such. Product adhered perfectly to surface, dried quickly, and subsequent coats bit nicely into each other. Successful project, product works & looks fantastic. Definitely recommend and will use again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by polock2 Pool Deck in AZ
I used this on my pool deck to quickly make it look nice before we sold the house. This product does not give you that textured "bumpy" layer on the pool deck, however it does cover the pool deck with a very nice coating of your choice of many colors. I only needed one coat of the product to do the job. It was easily applied with a normal paint brush and a normal roller (I used the broom handle on the roller so I didn't have to bend over the whole time). It took my wife and I 1 hr. 15 min to do the whole thing (the trim and all) in 106 degree temperatures with no direct sunlight on the deck itself. It has been very durable and I would highly recommend this if you need a economic yet beautiful pool deck makeover.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jbsamuels Very pleased with solid color stain
This stain worked so well I felt compelled to write a review. I made sure to follow the instructions and couldn't be more pleased with the finish of the stain. I was staining a concrete deck area that was made up of slabs poured at three different times, by three different vendors, with three different concrete mixes. This stain set a superb uniform color across all three areas. Looks great, love the color, a fraction of the cost of having a pro do a deck stain, highly recommended.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DavidGojira Not a true stain. It is really a paint....
It was easy to apply. However, it is not a true stain. A stain does just that...stains, or is absorbed, into the surface you are staining. Paint, such as this product, just covers the surface. And how do i know that? After my full third day, I hosed down the surface with regular hose flow. I did not power wash. And to my dismay, a small 2" x 2" area came off. My concrete has never been painted and is 17 years cured. This product, because it is already peeling, seems ok for a patio or sidewalk. And because of that, I rated it fair. But not convinced for a driveway.
I hate to think what is going to happen when I roll my truck through it in two weeks. I want a product that works relatively quick. This product has too much wait time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky7 CONCRETE STAIN LOOKS GREAT ON PATIO AND WITH LESS SUN GLARE.
I applied the Behr Concrete Primer #880 first then applied this Behr Concrete Stain tint base white #800 on my 2 patios. The job was easy and painless. I used paint pads on extensions for both. It's been 2 months and the adhesion of the stain looks good and the color looks great. Job Background: the covered patio is 38 years old and the uncovered patio is 4 years old. Neither was discolored by old stains.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wx4sno Excellent concrete stain for exterior basement
I bought this to stain our exterior basement walls which are concrete blocks coated with a layer of plaster "mud" which is basically concrete stucco. While the stucco helped to cover up the concrete block, there were so many discolorations across the surface of the stucco that it just didn't look good (see before and after pics attached). So I bought both the Behr Concrete Bonding Primer No. 880 and applied one coat of it, then waited about 18 hours and applied the stain. To give some contrast to our house, I opted to do a computerized color-matching of one of the samples in the store...slate gray #6695. The result is absolutely amazing! This really goes well with our gray siding and black/gray shingles. The stain went on well and we only needed one gallon. I highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenn beautiful coverage
This completely transformed the appearance of our driveway. It covered up discolored and old concrete, making it look brand new. It definitely refreshed the look of our home. I would highly recommend this product for new and old concrete. We had an area of older concrete on the driveway that fed into newer concrete. After applying the stain they look uniform. We used the Santa Fe color and it was very rich and vibrant. Also, clean up and application was very easy.
