Rated 5 out of 5 by Works better than all of the others!!! I have spent over $2,000 on water seal products for my basement so was not sure this would work. I bought the major brands for my 1,000 square foot basement and they were not much more than paint on the walls. This is more than paint it has some grit to it that will stick to the walls. I scraped the walls before applying to get a good seal. I asked the nice gentleman at the Paint Counter to put it in the paint shaker so it would mix nice. It is a great product. About the same price as the other name brands I have used but this one works. I also bought the InvisaFlow StealthFlow Gutter Downspouts ..they are the best! April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Easy Coverage, Minimal Smell My husband and I purchased this to basement waterproofer to coat the walls in our home built in 1978. Unlike previous experiences in other homes using Drylock, this Behr had a very minimal smell making it much easier to do this project on our own. When purchasing this, the gentlemen at Home Depot noted that the price difference between this and Drylock was minimal, but that the Behr quality was much superior. He noted that Drylock hasn't updated their formula in the last 30 years and that Behr has much better technology. I couldn't agree more. We were really impressed with the ability to tint the color of the Behr paint and ended up going with a nice shade of light grey. The application of the paint was easy and the coverage was great. The can noted that you could apply it to slightly moist surfaces which was a relief because we did have a small area were the cinderblock was already moist. We applied two coats and wow, what an improvement over the bland cinderblock! I would definitely recommend to anyone that has a moist basement. September 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works This won't prevent flooding. No paint can prevent that. Concrete is waterproof but it isn't hermetically sealed. This paint will deter water vapor from diffusing through the concrete which helps keep humidity lower and helps keep mold down. The paint job looked good after a couple of coats and the paint went into the masonry walls well. March 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best thing we've found! We were at our wits' end when we came across BEHR PREMIUM® Basement & Masonry Waterproofer. We seriously couldn't have found a better product! Our tiny cracks in the foundation were seeping water every time we had a bad storm and this totally did the trick! We can't thank you enough, BEHR! June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great product--well worth the money! The nay-sayer reviews I read looks like they were using the wrong paint to begin with--they used this, a concrete waterproofing product, to paint steel doors and wooden spindles--really? This paint does an awesome job on materials it is intended to be used for. Behr offers a lot of other paints for wood and steel--pick the correct product for your job and you can't go wrong with Behr! September 1, 2012
