Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great after two coats, but doesn't last as long as we hoped Originally painted around our pool with the grey pearl three years ago and was hoping not to repaint for several more years, since it looks so beautiful once finished. Unfortunately it didn't last as long as I would have wanted (because of staining and fading) and had to repaint it again this year, but hoping this time around it will last longer than 2-3 years. Also, painted the coping around the pool in white, but because it's a tintable paint, all the leaves and tree debris that sits on the white paint too long begins to stain the white color and then quickly looks dirty. The company's clear paint claims it helps against the staining, which seemed to help somewhat when we used it three years ago, but does ultimately get dirty after time. I wish there was a very strong white concrete paint or even clear coating that has a stronger anti slip and stain resistant finish that doesn't yellow the white paint color and won't stain after about a year.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Durability & Traction Great paint for both new & previously painted concrete steps. Improved traction on previously slippery steps. Needed 2 coats to cover light grey paint with dark grey but it lasted through a bad winter with a lot of ice scraping. Will not hide 1/4" cracks as claimed but is fairly thick & will cover hairline cracks OK. I will buy again because it's better than porch & concrete paints offered in the store. Worth the higher price & any wait time for ship to store option. August 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The perfect solution the the concrete around our pool. Originally painted 7 years ago with a different product that never had the anti slip feature, so was scary getting out of the pool. With Sure Step, I feel more confident and love the outcome. Wish there were more color options, but overall, we couldn't be happier. July 23, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by DISAPPOINTED Based on the reviews, I had high hopes. ►I just finished painting my patio with this GUNK, and it looks terrible! Every single brushstroke shows. ► I started the project using a roller, which splattered and left bare gaps. I had to go over the area several times to fill them in. ►Reviewers say it went on smoothly, but for me it was anything BUT a smooth application. ►I changed to a brush, and it did go on smoother with that but took two more coats. And the end result is an eyesore, with every brushstroke leaving its GRITTY mark ►Not sure how to fix it, but it drives me nuts every time I look at it, so I will have to figure out some way to camouflage it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. We used Sure Step on a part of a warehouse floor that gets wet and slippery. To the bare concrete slab, we first applied a concrete primer/masonry filler to a clean, dry floor then the Sure Step. Sure Step was very thick but applied smoothly with a roller as directed. We applied two thin coats of Sure Step. In our application, the Sure Step covered a much larger area than expected. (We returned the third can to the local Home Depot with our online receipt with no problems.) The result looks very nice and not slippery at all when wet! We are very impressed with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Useful Product Easy to apply, dries quickly, good coverage. Great for cold weather to ensure a positive grip especially for steps and side walks. The pearl gray was darker color than expected. Next time I would add a lighter tint to it. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase I read the reviews before purchasing this product so I knew the outcome would be good. It dries very quickly so you have to work fast. I did try pouring it directly onto the surface as suggested in the directions but it went on too thick and dried before it could be properly spread leaving the outline of the puddle. A good old fashioned paint tray and roller worked best. Since I used it for a slippery driveway I didn't park on it for a week. Not sure yet how it handles hot tire pick up but my main purpose was to prevent someone from slipping and injuring themselves. It seems to have done the trick. It has great traction even when wet. Excellent value since it's no more expensive than regular concrete paint. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! We applied two coats on wood decking using a brush. It went on easily and bonded well. Since then, we have had a couple of good rains. Water beads up and runs off and the coating provides an excellent non-skid surface even when wet. Very pleased with the look and function. June 25, 2011
