Q:Can I use an airless sprayer to apply the color enhancing sealer on pavers
by|Feb 8, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Miguel, thanks for your question. As it turns out, we don't recommend using an airless sprayer to apply our Color Enhancing Sealer. Instead, it's best to use a pump sprayer or a 3/8in nap roller. Good luck with your project! -Christina

      Q:CAN I APPLY WET LOOK (HI-GLOSS) SEALER OVER COLOR ENHANCING (NATURAL) SEALER....I'M LOOKING FOR THAT SHINE IN ADDITION TO THE COLOR ENHANCEMENT?
      by|Dec 12, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi JOSEPH, thank you for your question. We do not recommend a coating over the Color Enhancing Sealer as the sealer will penetrate the surface and repel any coatings over it. You would need to choose one sealer to apply. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Kell, thanks for the question. Although the Color Enhancing Sealer is water-based, and also has silicone technology, so it isn't 100% acrylic. If you have further questions about the product, feel free to reach out to us directly; our customer care team is happy to help. -Ronald

          Don't yet know if it will work long term.
          I received this last winter here in PA and could not do the job till last month. Over time, I am not sure what this is suppose to actually do for concrete. I used it as instructed and followed directions. I did not see any change in the gray color of the patio blocks. After putting several coats on and letting dry for 48 hours, I put some water on it and didn't notice anything different about the blocks that had it and those that didn't. The coating was a milky white liquid which I applied with a roller. Made application easier. Not the nicest smelling and had a real kick so use in a well ventilated area. I used this indoors where the concrete blocks get no sun or weather, but gets chlorine pool water on it next to an indoor pool. I was hoping it would keep the concrete like new

          Bringing back the color
          After 2 years our back patio looked like it needed a refresh of color and shine to show off what the installer had originally done with the amazing coloring and stone work. This sealer did a great job at revitalizing the color of our patio and sealing it to prevent further fade. It was easy to install with the help of an HDX pump sprayer and dry,sunny day. The prep was a bit intense as we needed to fully clean down the patio and with 4 kids and a dog, it can be a bit difficult.

          This is ideal for sealing porches, patios, walkways, driveways and pool decks.Best on porous natural stones, bricks and pavers. It takes up to 3 days to cure and can be applied with a sprayer. It protects from freezing. This product causes eye and skin irritation, avoid breathing fumes if using indoors.................................................

          Penetrating Clear Sealer
          I have several large concrete statuaries (a turtle, cowboy boot and a rooster) in my yard, as well as 2 concrete bird baths and multiple stepping stones - all in need of sealant. Without a sealant these items are more prone to discoloration, cracking or even crumbling due to weather exposure, water, and grease and oil stains. This BEHR Premium Color Enhancing Penetrating Clear Concrete Sealer will help protect my concrete items by penetrating the porous surfaces. It will also enrich the color and bring out the natural beauty of the concrete. I have not been able to use this product yet because we've been having off and on drizzle and high winds which brings in a lot of dirt. The items I want to seal need to be extremely clean and very dry and curing time is 24 to 72 hours as well. So, I will start this project as soon as I know the weather will cooperate for a week and I can complete it before the rain and wind come again. It will be a relief to have everything sealed and know that my concrete items will be protected, they will look better and will last a lot longer.

          Clear + Color Enhancing Sealer
          I applied this to a small paver patio outside my basement sliding glass door. Pictures are after application but before completely dry. I would interpret “color enhancing” as you should expect some darkening. I think this makes my pavers look richer and nicer. You should try it out on a small section of your stone / masonry / bricks surface if you have any doubts. Lots of different application approaches: sprayer, brush, roller, or sponge. Easy to apply, nice results!

          BEHR Enhancing Penetrating Clear Sealer Was Easy to Use and Did a Super Job
          I have a covered entry porch on the front on my home that serves two entrances. It is made up of antique bricks recovered from much older homes and they are made from a variety of different clays. They are installed on a 6 inch thick poured concrete base with a plastic bottom barrier. Since the porous bricks absorb surface moisture, they tend to grow some mold and mildew. There is a brick fireplace and some brick walls as well but they stay dry and don’t tend to attract mold or mildew. I decided to use BEHR water resistant, color enhancing, and penetrating formula sealer to see if it would help inhibit any growth by restricting water entry. I thoroughly cleaned the brick surface and applied the BEHR product using a 3/8 inch nap roller with some areas requiring a brush. The product caused some darkening which was expected and also did add some color enhancement. It certainly did a good job of sealing the brick which I’m hoping will aid with any fungal growth. So far I am very pleased with the no sheen look and have hope for my main goal of reduced fungal growth. I have used a lot of BEHR products in the past and have been very satisfied so I do recommend them without any hesitation. I will be doing my paver deck next with this product.

          Effective concrete sealer that will make your tinted concrete stand out!
          I requested this BEHR PREMIUM 1 gal. Color Enhancing Penetrating Clear Sealer from the Home Depot October Seeds reviewer campaign to seal the concrete walkway leading from the city sidewalk up to our front porch steps. Years ago, I had used muriatic acid to clean deep stains in the concrete. While the cleaning left us with a fantastically bright white walkway, it also opened up a lot of deep pits in the surface that I worry will develop into large cracks. Enter the BEHR PREMIUM 1 gal. Color Enhancing Penetrating Clear Sealer to finish the job I started and make sure our walkway remains something to be proud of for many more years to come. When the sealer arrived, we were about to experience an extended period of cold temperatures and rain, so I've held off on applying it since I'll likely need about 48 hours of 70+ temps with no chance of rain, and that isn't likely this late into October and a predicted very wet and cold winter fast approaching. I have used Behr branded concrete sealer in the past however when preparing a garage/workshop floor and that sealer remained intact for 5+ years, so I am confident in the product already.

          Premium Sealer
          I'm not really sure I know what "color Enhancing" means in a clear sealer, so I admit I was a little hesitant about applying this to my concrete-and-brick porch. When wet it has a milky finish to it, but it does indeed dry clear. My concrete is still white and my bricks still orangey-red, so I can't really attest to the color-enhancing properties. As with most sealers, good surface prep is essential.

          Excellent Results
          My flagstone walkway was built in 2005. Nature played havoc with the stones. I re-built it and wanted to seal it with a color enhancing sealer. No local stores had any enhancers in stock, just sealers with a luster or gloss. I wanted the original color back and a good seal without gloss. Behr color enhancing sealer wasn't in stock and not advertised by Home Depot. During my internet search, it came up as a NEW product and had to be shipped. It stated that it could be used on natural stone, including flagstone. I took a chance and ordered a gallon. I got it shipped free in less than a week. My test stone convinced me. The next day I did the entire walkway. It took a half gallon for approx 200 sq/ft, using a roller. My flagstone looks like it did when we laid it 17 years ago. Thank-you Behr.

            Not happy with results
            I wanted to use the color-enhancing sealer on my flagstone walkway but after trying it on a spare stone, I’m going to look for something else. After cleaning the face of the flagstone, I applied two coats of the enhancer/sealer, being sure to let the first coat dry thoroughly before applying the 2nd. I used a sponge brush to ensure that a uniform amount was applied each time. The attached pictures show the results I received. The flagstone is much darker and the color is not enhanced – it’s hidden. The surface is sealed and water-resistant but certainly not color enhanced.

            Response from BehrOct 19, 2022
            Hi DougD, thank you for leaving a review. I'm sorry to hear that the sealer did not meet your expectations but I am glad that you followed the label instructions by testing the product on a spare piece of stone before applying the sealer to your walkway. While the product is intended to produce a "wet" color appearance without a sheen, it will also darken the natural colors of the stone. Customer satisfaction is very 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
