About This Product

The BEHR Premium Protector and Waterproofer is an interior/exterior coating designed to penetrate the surface up to 1/2 in. This product provides a natural clear finish and has a 10-Year Guarantee. This waterproofer creates a barrier inside the surface that keeps water out but allows trapped water vapors to escape, reducing corrosion, spalling, efflorescence and freeze-thaw damage. The protection is not worn away with normal use. It protects long after the water beading is gone. Ideal for use on horizontal and vertical uncoated concrete and masonry surfaces such as: concrete block, pavers, stucco, brick, unglazed tiles, exposed aggregate concrete, sandstone and slate.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Curtis, thank you for your question. Yes, non-abrasive cleaners can be used to clean the concrete after allowing it to cure for a few days. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

    Q:Can I apply DeckOver on top of this or how should I prepare the surface for DeckOver if this has been previously applied?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Marble, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we do not recommend applying any products over our Concrete & Masonry Protector & Waterproofer. If you'd like to use our DeckOver, I recommend removing the Waterproofer with a conventional paint stripper before coating the surface. Please feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. Have a great day! -Lina

      A:  Hi Bobb, thank you for your question. As it turns out, our coatings, including the Concrete & Masonry Protector & Waterproofer, are not recommended to be applied to showers or any areas submerged underwater as this can cause performance issues with the coating. Have a great day! - Randy

          I used twelve 5-gallon of this product 12 years ago on the exterior walls of my brick and stone home. Seeing a slight degradation finally on some weathered parts but 95% is still good for years. Kept the brick and mortar clean and pristine even in shady areas. I decided to use the same Protector and Waterproofer from Behr currently because of my past experience. As is, I’m a big fan of Behr paints and this product makes their reputation even better. Highly recommended for sure!

          Very impressive coating
          I usually don’t write reviews, but just finished re-grouting my patio. This time I decided to use this waterproofing sealer. It was super easy going on with no trouble. It really did not look any different afterwards, and I thought it may have been a waste, but then we had a heavy rain and I noted the water was not soaking into the bricks. Then I was out fixing hose and some water came out and I saw how it beaded off and did not soak in. See my photos, the last one was the heavy rain.

            Great concrete sealer for waterproofing
            Water and bird poop used to just seep into my concrete. After one layer of the concrete sealer, water just beads on top of the concrete. Bird poop is easier to wash out. Four starts only because it's very difficult to apply. You'll need two people. Some places it just pools and a roller is of no help. You'll need a rag to wipe out puddles before it dries. The viscosity is difficult.

              I bought 19 Premium 1gal Behr Natural Protector and Waterproofer from the same store and within a few days to seal the concrete around the pool and my patio. I did this in the past using the same product with no issue. This time I am a bit disappointed. As I went through the product, my concrete and patio have now different tone. My conclusion is that the product has changed and is not consistant from one constrained to the other. I am not sure I will buy this product again. I spent hours sealing the concrete and I cannot afford to do it over. What are you going g to do about this? Thanks.

              Good so far
              I used this product to seal a concrete patio that was resurfaced with Rapid Set Cement All with a broom finish applied 24 hours prior. Most importantly, I wanted a penetrating sealer that would help prevent against deicer damage and spalling. It rained the day after the sealer was applied and the water is beading up nicely. So far, so good. My understanding is the beading behavior will go away but the protection from sealing up the internal capillaries will last up to ten years.

                Not impressed
                I applied this to half of my driveway and used Valspar for the other half as a comparison. This product does not make the water bead up at all. I applied per instructions after pressure washing my driveway. I’m very disappointed. The Valspar equivalent made the water bead up and appears to be a much better product. Left side of the photo is Behr and the right side is Valspar.

                  water really beads up but what happens when it freezes?
                  Applied this waterproofed to a driveway that has a brushed finish. Water really beads up but what happens if there's a mild winter day that melts some snow and then the beads freeze overnight?

                    Beads up and good after 3 months
                    Love how the water beads up. Looking forward to seeing if it lasts as long as expected but so far so good. I don’t believe it went as far as expected when spraying it out but still happy overall.

                    Worked for me
                    Have a lot of new concrete that needed sealing. Pressure washed and waited 24 hrs. While applying it, I was worried because it was dark and looking uneven. However as it cured, all was good. No signs of the product whatsoever and after watering some plants there was water leaking but it beaded up like mercury. Worth the price.

                      Still works, 1 yr later
                      I applied last year. I was only able to do half my driveway before running out of product. This photo was taken this year. Initially the rain would bead up and not penetrrate into concrete. That's worn off but the clean color of driveway still holding up. I think this is a good product.
