Behr Decorative Concrete Stain
Behr®, Decorative Concrete Stain. We chose to use a pump sprayer and used Graystone and accented with the Artic Black. Once dry, we applied the low luster sealer 1 coat and allowed to dry, I then added the Behr® anti-slip to the second gallon. Overall I am very pleased.

        NOT STAIN
        This is more like a thin paint. It DOES NOT adhere well. I laid new concrete, followed the instructions exactly, and it comes up with high pressure on my hose and with a pressure washer. I dont know how you can call this a stain. Definitely misleading at a minimum.

        Hi Wesley,

        Thank you for reviewing Behr Premium Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain. I'm very sorry to hear about the peeling issue experienced, as that's never what we want our customers to go through. To help prevent this issue, we recommend allowing the stain to dry 30 days before cleaning as needed with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent. Customer satisfaction is very important to us and I encourage you to contact Behr directly for further assistance. We'd love to learn more about your project and find the best way to help.

        Kindest regards,

        Doris Behr

          Good Concrete Stain!!
          Pictures are a work in progress. Still need to be filled in and sealed. This is a pretty good concrete stain. This is NOT a paint, but a true stain. Not sure how long it will last as I have just put it on. Colors are pretty true to the samples online as well as the pamphlet they have in store. You may have to reapply to get darker colors. This stain was applied to unsealed concrete that is brand new with no weathering, or sealer, picture included. The colors in the pictures are Desert Gold(the yellowish one), Granite Green, Adobe(the pinkish flesh color one), and Cedar Blush. The Cedar Blush is very pigmented. Some of them have 2 applications, some just one. The Granite Green are mostly single applications. The Desert Gold and Adobe are single and double applications. Still messing with which ones I want a little darker. With the amount of pavers you see in the pictures, I used about 1/4 of the gallon. A little goes a long way. It was very easy to apply with a paintbrush. Clean-up was simple. It is very watery so I am doing the pavers before we fill in between them. Would have been a nightmare to try and do it afterward without it running all over the mortar mix filling. Overall, I am very happy with this product. As you can see, the colors look different from different angles.

            Let me say I have not completely finished my project. I power washed my patio on Sunday and used a pump sprayer with Behr concrete stain today. After about 4 hours I was curious about the "wet look" sealer. Let me say that many reviewers are confusing "wet look" with "glossy" they ARE NOT the same. So I used a paint brush (although tomorrow I will be using the pump sprayer) to test this sealer in a few areas. I read lots of reviews about spots and foaming etc but I experienced none of that. I put down an even coat then left it alone for another 2 to 3 hours and went back out to take a look. It is BEAUTIFUL and more like there is dew on it even though it is completely dry. My tiles/pavers were just plain white concrete. I also believe the wet look will vary depending upon the material. I am very satisfied at this point and will update if need be.

              Behr Decorative Concrete stain is a great product to make concrete look a little nicer. I used it on a pad I laid outside of my shed.  With 2 coats it covered well and dries well. The temp has been cold so, I am not sure if it would look different putting it on in warmer weather. The directions read 50 degrees and up. I didn't use a sprayer but applied it with a cloth because it was a small area. It turned out as expected. I am inexperienced in a project like this, so someone with more expertise could probably make it look better. It has great coverage. 2 coats on a pad about 5 ft by 8 ft, used about 1/4 of the gallon. It is very runny, I would recommend wearing latex gloves to prevent staining your hands.

              I have a number of stonework projects I've done around my home. Over time some have started to fade in color from the sun and elements. I used this Behr Premium Copper Canyon Semi-Transparent Flat Concrete Stain to refresh some of the stone. Depending on the surface you plan to use this on, you may need to do a fair amount of prep work. Since I'm simply refreshing the look of stone, I only washed off the surfaces. I love how easy it is to apply this stain. It goes on well and looks like stain not paint. In certain respects it made cheap concrete pavers look better than they did when purchased. I'll definitely keep this around.

              This is a really nice decorative stain that can be used on patios, walkways, or concrete. We've used a lot of Behr paint in our house during our recent round of home renovations and we've been thrilled with their products. We're going to use this stain next spring when we do some outdoor projects but I did a quick splash test on concrete on the side of our house and it looked really good. Granted, it was just a sampling and I cleaned it up right away, but I liked the effect it had on the concrete.

              BEHR PREMIUM 1 GAL. #DCS-865 TERRA COTTA SEMI TRANSPARENT FLAT INTERIOR/ EXTERIOR DECORATIVE CONCRETE STAIN, RED If you’re looking to add some pop to your boring gray concrete this is it! I would recommend getting two different colors and feathering one on top of the other while still wet to give it even more of a wow factor. Follow the instructions to the full extent. I had bird poop in one area that I didn’t get off all the way apparently and it shows through. Overall very good product
