Answer This Question

A:  Hi Loub, thank you for your question. When applying the Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain, some surface color, including concrete patches, may show through. To completely cover this, it's best to apply the Solid Color Concrete Stain once the surface has been primed using the Concrete Bonding Primer No. 880. Have a great day! - Randy

      A:  Hi Mike, thank you for your question. Our Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain does not require a separate primer first. However, you can use our Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer (NO. 436) to enhance the adhesion. Have a great day! -Lina

        A:  Hi Guss, thank you for your question. As it turns out, surface stains or discoloration will show through the Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain. We recommend applying our Solid Color Concrete Coating to cover previous surface colors/stains. Have a great day! - Randy

          Pool Pavers
          Our pavers are old and faded. We liked the original look. Didn’t want to paint over them or try a different color. If they showed thru would look odd or require multiple coats to look uniform. Went with Greystone which is also called Moth White in the brochure. Maybe we didn’t get Greystone because it has blue in it. Surprised how well one coat looked. Looks more new again. 4 gallons. Used a brush on the coping and sprayer on everything else. Sealer is next.

            Restored our stamped concrete patio!
            I spent a lot of time scanning reviews and competing products, but went with Behr. Decided on base of Cedar Blush, but some reviews noted that it was very red-orange, so I topped two base coats with one coat of Walnut. Came out exactly as I’d hoped! Note: Success is in the prep; believe it. I power-washed, then applied Zep stripper to remove any old sealer. Applied this product (and sealer) thinly by pump-sprayer, back-rolling the sealer in 4x4 sections. Very pleased.

              completely the wrong color
              This is far more red/orange than the photos. Now i am stuck with a patch of concrete that i’ll have to finish in the wrong color or completely start over with finding some way to undo what ive started. Waste of time and money

                The worse product, don’t buy it !!!
                We decided to go with the copper canyon, as we liked the deep red/brown color. We got a pumpkin light orange color. The color of the actual stain look like a pumpkin color too. So we traded it in for the carob color, which is a very dark brown. We got a dirt color on our beige/white decorative stone. Finally we decided to go for a slightly darker beige and we got the old adobe color. We then got as a result a punk colored stone! Completely innaccurate for everything!

                    MISLEADING INFORMATION
                    Canal Blue goes on clean cement as a very bright blue. The result was nothing like online pictures or the brochure in the Home Depot store. The bright blue was unacceptable. I experimented with another coat of light gray. In the end, that result is acceptable, but I do not understand the need to experiment. Customer service in the paint department at the local Home Depot store was not helpful. I contacted Behr directly with proof of purchase and photos. They did not reply.

                      Cedar Blush on Brick Paver
                      Color selection was tricky. Smaller size sample stains are not available. I ended up choosing cedar blush and brownstone. I applied with a garden sprayer as suggested and it worked well and was very easy. My patio was very porous so I needed much more than I had thought. Like 3X as much! 2 coats stain then sealed with the Behr wet look sealer 2X. The photos show wet areas, very orange, dry is more red then sealer lightens that a bit. Stepping stones in brownstone.

                        Not durable at all.
                        This product is not durable. Within 2 weeks, concrete surface was chipped by foot and paw traffic. 2 coats! Whole area needs to be redone. Will choose different brand.

                          Looked good
                          I had a entirely new driveway poured & decided I wanted it colored(not just grey). I purchased many gallons of this item & sprayed it on with a pump sprayer. It looked good, then I covered it with $225 five gallon sealer(rated excellent). It seemed okay until it snowed & then turned to ice. Whenever you shoveled off the ice after it had melted enough it took the sealer & stain right off. Now my driveway is blotchy. It also gets scratch marks extremely easily. This product might be fine in warm weather climates but not here in Colorado. I should have gone with the Acid wash stain(albeit more expensive).

                          Hello, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that your coating is coming off when shoveling snow off your driveway. That is not the experience we want for our customers. While our Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain is not designed to take on this type of abrasiveness, I'm concerned that it came off the surface after that had been sealed. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to us directly so we can learn more about your project and assist. We look forward to hearing from you! -Lina Behr

                            Not satisfied
                            This was supposedly light colored. It’s dark, like navy. My floor is blue. BLUE. It didn’t matter if it was sprayed or rolled, it came out the same. Pretty but not at at all what is shown in the brochure.
