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.

Contractor Recommended.
I was not sure at first because it's from Home Depot. And, as a contractor I have always used other high quality brands. But let me tell you, I have used it on several occasions to seal high quality Travertine, and I guarantee it. If someone has not had good results it is due to poor preparation.

    Awesome Results
    Consistency of milk, sprayed on. Did not change the color. When dried, did not look sealed, but after water sprinklers sprayed it, it all beaded up like mercury on a table. Very pleased.

      It’s been a month and water is still beading up like a freshly waxed car. My porches, driveway and garage are still looking clean and easy to maintain.

      Great for Sealing New Concrete Planters!
      I recently purchased two new concrete planters for the front of my home. It was recommended that I seal the planters to prolong their life and to keep the chemicals and additives used make the concrete from seeping into the soil over time and hurting my plants. After some research I chose the Behr Premium Natural Protector and Waterproofer. I chose this over the Low-Lustre and Wet-Look versions because I didn’t want any sheen. I liked the natural look of my planters the way they were. I just wanted to add some protection. This product went on wet and dried perfectly bringing the planters back to the way they looked when I bought them. I can’t attest to some of the complaints of white residue being left behind because my planters were designed already with that look. I did not notice any more white than what previously existed. After allowing to dry for 36 hours I sprinkled some water on them and the water bead right down the inside and outside. None of the water soaked into the planter! For my purposes, this product worked as promised with no issues. It went on easily with a nylon paint brush and cleaned off my hands and brushes with soap and water. Note: Use a drop cloth for this type of a project. Also wear old clothes and eye protection as mist created from brushing can get on your face and areas around you. I am very happy with the end result. As to the 10 year guarantee, we shall see. At this price I may reseal my planters in five years just to be safe. Oh, in case anyone is wondering, I used about a half gallon for two large planters on the inside and outside (approx. 22” wide by 30” tall). I know it seems like a lot of product to use, but the planters had a lot of textured surfaces and design which soaked up a lot of the sealant. I have no regrets and highly recommend this product.

        This stuff is INSANE. It went on really thin and took two bottles to seal 200 square feet of concrete, which seemed like a lot of product when one bottle was supposed to have a 250-ft. spread rate. Plus, it dried super fast. Because of that, I thought it wasn't going to work. But, lo and behold, I was moving a water-filled umbrella base onto the patio. Water spilled out and, I kid you not, the water formed a bubble that just sat on top of the concrete. It was like a science experiment. Totally blew my mind. When this stuff says it's a protector and waterproofer, it is NOT lying.

            White residue everywhere
            This product is terrible. The new cement now looks blotchy. See image. What a terrible look. Behr, never again. You should be ashamed of putting and LEAVING something like this on the market .
            Response from BehrOct 8, 2020
            Hi jb, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear about the blotchy appearance. This is not normal, and I understand your frustration. I recommend allowing the surface to dry for 24 hours, and cleaning it with soap and water. If this does not help, it will be best to remove the coating. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance, our customer care team is happy to help you! -Giovanna Behr

              Purchased this sealer to treat my concrete patio and paving stone walkway which have been requiring power washing every 2 years due discoloration from dirt and algae caused by water absorption into the surfaces. I applied this product using a hand pump pressure sprayer and going over any uneven area with an outdoor broom. The benefits have been obvious rom day one. Water no longer is absorbed but forms drops on the surface until it dries in the air. I cannot attest to the longevity of the application, but if it holds up even close to the 10 year warranty, I will be happy. The only thing to be aware of is that in my experience, the stated 150 sq. ft. / gallon coverage is overly optimistic. It may be possible with a power sprayer that can better evenly coat surfaces, but I used 6 gallons and got closer to 200 sq. ft.

              I might have given this five stars except for a couple of things...everything went great until I poured out the last gallon and a half into my pump sprayer, and found I had not been able to stir up all the sediment that had settled to the bottom. Hopefully it will still perform to my original expectations (so far, so good). I followed the directions and etched the concrete with Muriatic acid first, and the pump sprayer worked really well...even the solids near the end didn't plug it up badly, so coverage was good. I heeded the temperatures and the sealer really dried quickly with the concrete sitting in the hot sun all day. I was able to walk on it within a couple of hours. In less sunny (and cooler concrete) conditions, when I put another gallon on to finish the job, it took a little longer to cure, but still not much longer. I did get a little white show up, and that was especially noticeable where the sealer ran on the slope of the drive...had I broomed it quickly it probably wouldn't have been noticeable. That would be an advantage to applying it under cooler conditions. I was looking for a sealer that would obviously work because the concrete would look dry even under a heavy rain and that's what I have (and it looks cool having the water bead up). And 'm hoping the white runs will get worn off without affecting the seal. The etched texture is NOT slippery under wet conditions. My advice is if you order this online take to to Home Depot and have them shake it for you before putting it down, and follow the directions. I have a feeling a lot of the issues people have noted can be attributed to not doing that.

              I have cancelled this online order and bought from store. Applied on to my driveway and other concrete surfaces after cleaning the surfaces using concrete cleaners. It does work well and it did reflect all water as expected. Will watch it on another rainy day and see how it performs. For now 5 stars.
