Answer This Question

A:  Hi joseph - Thanks for your question. While our Decorative Semi-Transparent Concrete Stain can be applied to pavers, we do not recommend using it on a driveway surface. This product is not designed for vehicle traffic and may fail if driven on. Have a great day! -Christina

    Q:Can I mix 2 colors together to make a custom color

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Bobo, thanks for the question. I wouldn't recommend mixing 2 colors together to make a custom color. The outcome would be experimental; also, if more of the same color is needed, you wouldn't be able to recreate it. Have a great day! -Ronald

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi Mark, thank you for your question. As it turns out, we do not recommend our Semi-Transparent Decorative Concrete Stain for slate tile. However, if you're looking for a clear finish, you can use our Wet-Look or Low-Lustre Sealer. Have a great day! -Lina

        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.

                          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
