          Not happy. Color & texture off. Not as advertised. Love Behr interior paints & been loyal for years. But something happened here…They need to figure out this concrete stain soon. I need to return these 3 gallons. But how?

          Pleasantly surprised
          Let me start by saying when I first bought this stain I originally had the idea to try and do a faux brick design with a sponge. However, with the stain being so thin, it did not turn out well as the stain would just run down. Luckily, I had tried it on a column out of sight so I said what the heck I’m going to stain the whole Column and see how it looks. And man am I happy that I did. I am very pleased with how everything turned out. I would highly recommend I used the tint cedar blush.

            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.
