After purchasing 8 gallons of this product, at the cost of almost $50. per gallon, and all the work of putting it down. The concrete patio LOOKED FANTASTIC. Loved the color, the texture and it really dressed up the bare concrete. After a week and a half, I started noticing chips or flakes in various spots. Then it progressed into large cracks/crazing, looking like it was shrinking and pulling itself apart. Then when the lawn maintenance people used the leaf blower on the adjoining sidewalks and gardens, big chunks 6" x 12" came flying off. Home Depot has referred me to Rustoleum company. I haven't been able to tackle that just yet, but I will! This was on 2 1/2 month old concrete that had no spills on it and there had been no rain for the prior 4 days. Temperature the day I painted was 89F.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by William Excellent product if applied accurately
I pressure washed, appied muriatic acid, neutralized with soap and water. After it dried I applied a bonding agent (this was done outside of the instructions). I then applied this product when the bonding agent was mildly tacky. By using the recommended applicator, it covered 240 sq. ft with alittle left over for touchups.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ballboys5 GREAT PRODUCT. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW MANUFACTURERS DIRECTIONS FOR APPLICATION.
The finished product is beautiful. Inexpensive way to dress up concrete floors in your home. We have dogs and carpeting is a NO NO. Easy vacumming and clean up. The prepping and application itself is timely. When the decorative coating application was done we went one more step and applied 3 coats of concrete sealer (wet look). The floors are beautiful. When we step out of the shower with wet feet, no fear of slipping. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS NO EASY PROJECT. However, well worth the the time and effort.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by THUZASM Great...if you like peeled coating on your patio!
This is a HORRIBLE product. The recommendations are to etch, first, but doesn't say it's needed. I bought one, but it wasn't enough...so I purchased two more gallons. After spending $150 on three gallons, and using two on my back patio, it peeled BIG TIME, and pretty quickly. Check out the pics.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1320freek Great Product
I started using this product about 6 months ago in my bathroom. Since then I have completed my closet and Master Bedroom. Although it is for decks, patios, walkways, pool decks, & porches... I wanted to try painting the concrete in my house. The Rustoleum Decorative Concrete coating seems to be very durable so far. The color that I chose (Sahara) really looks nice in the house. It looks kind of like beach sand and the feel on bare feet is really good. Speaking of bare feet, this stuff is not slippery at all. I have no fears getting out of the shower with wet feet. Another thing I did that is "not required" is I put the Rustoleum Concrete Sealer on top of the coating. I use the "gloss clear, wet look". It looked good without it, but I thought it may be another layer of protection. In short, I am very pleased with all the Rustoleum products I am using. And I don't work for them....I just like the way it's turning out. I also used Rustoleum Epoxy Shield Concrete Etch to prep the floor. This product also worked well.

Quality product and easy to apply. Very little preparation with the exception of general cleaning.

I should have listened to the other reviewers who had issues with this stuff. Like them, I prepped my covered patio according to their directions even doing the etching twice! Power washed it with a cleaner and rinsed it thoroughly. Let it dry for 2 days in the Texas heat. I gave it two coats with the special applicator that took 3.5 gallons for a 208sqft area. I let it dry an extra day. (By the way, there is little traffic on the patio. It's only my wife and I!) Whew! Yeah, huh? And yes indeed, it looked great for 4 weeks until it cracked, bubbled and peeled to the bare concrete in two spots. I do not recommend it. Steer clear!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Partsguy This takes two coats
Applying edges with putty knife on first coat DO NOT Brush on!! First coat had me worried then I applied the second and WOW looks fabulous
Has non skid texture for lanai near pool
Some color inconsistency even with mixing gallons together while applying
Overall very happy! Just finished so not able to comment on longevity
