Can I apply this on a wood surface?

Asked by LLeo June 11, 2021
1
Answer

Hi LLeo, Thank you for writing in. As it turns out, Granite Grip is only recommended for concrete and masonry surfaces. If applied to wood, Granite Grip will have difficulty adhering properly and it will peel sooner than it should. Instead, I recommend looking into DeckOver Textured or Porch & Patio Anti-Slip Floor Paint. I hope this information was helpful. Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions you may have. Good luck with your project! ~Doris

I patched the concrete to smooth out any cracks and to level the surfaces. Do I now need to use the muriatic acid?

Asked by Dee23 June 6, 2021
2
Answers

Hi Dee23, thank you for writing in with your question. We recommend etching smooth surfaces. If the concrete and cracks are already rough and porous, you can skip the muriatic acid. You can test this by sprinkling water on a few areas to see how quickly it is absorbed. If rapidly absorbed, you can go ahead and paint. If water beads for a few minutes, then it will be necessary to etch. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

Asked by Paige June 2, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Paige, thank you for your question. Your surface should be rough (like 150-grit sandpaper) and porous for the coating to properly adhere. You can always test your new concrete to figure out if it is ready. You can sprinkle water over a few areas to see how quickly the water is absorbed. If rapidly absorbed, you can go ahead and apply the product. If water beads for a few minutes, we recommend etching the concrete. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

how long for complete dry?

Asked by jman May 30, 2021
2
Answers

Hi jman - Thank you for your question. Granite Grip will completely cure after 4 weeks of dry time. The coating can be subjected to light foot traffic after 24 hours. After 72 hours, the surface can be subjected to heavy foot traffic, it can be driven on, and you can move furniture back into place. Best - Sara

Worst product I’ve ever used
We purchased several gallons of this based on the reviews and it needed up being a waste of money. It totally took 3 coats just to fully cover the cement and now there are hundreds of bubbles due to the heat. The product does not state it bubbles in heat. We live in California we have hot summers and we are at the end of spring and already so many bubbles. This paint is worthless we spent over 500 for as many gallons as we needed and now we have to remove it all.. smh BEWARE!!! We even etched and treated the cement before applying....
by CU
Response from BehrJun 7, 2021
Hi CU,

Thank you for reviewing Behr Granite Grip. I'm very sorry to hear about the bubbling and coverage issues experienced, as that's never what we want our customers to go through.

To fix the surface, I recommend removing the loose Granite Grip by scraping or with a grinder. If it's peeling down to bare concrete, the bare concrete should be etched with something like muriatic acid until it feels like 150-grit sandpaper. The concrete porosity can be checked by sprinkling water throughout the surface. If the water is absorbed rapidly, that means the concrete is ready to be coated.

For best results, we recommend applying Granite Grip within a 50-90F temperature range and out of direct sunlight.

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
Great stuff! Perfect solution for our project.
We’re having a 3 season room installed over an existing concrete patio. I was going to use a typical concrete sealer on the section that was going to be enclosed until i saw this product. After a thorough pressure washing I taped it off and applied the coating with a brush on the edges and adhesive rollers on the large open areas. It took a little less than 3 gallons and 2 coats to do a 12’ x 14’ area. It covered all blemishes and cracks on this 20 year old weathered patio. The floor looks fabulous!

LOTS OF WORK- GREAT ENDING
After reading all the reviews i was very NERVOUS ! But then i realized that most of the negative reviews were from people who were applying this to " slick surfaces", Garages, interior floors etc. After reading the reviews that were Pool deck related, i realized they were mostly very happy as i am now. I had stained concrete before starting and followed the normal prep instructions , pressure washing etc. After the first coat i was still very nervous as it looks unfinished and as if it will never cover properly. After the second coat things got a lot better but i am very picky and knew a third coat would be needed. After the 3rd coat it looked really good and finally like the picture on the label. I then applied two coats of sealer and that is when things became great. This project took almost 35 really solid hours over three days to complete. I love the results, but would suggest anyone using sealer to add some shark bite or something similar as it is a little slick when wet. I ended up using 52 gallons of this stuff ! Very expensive, but it looks like a Hotel resort pool now. On a side note, i have 2 areas that have bubbled, but they are in areas that i used concrete patch beforehand . It is very important that you have a rough surface for this to work its best. Good luck and remember, several coats will be needed but the results are worth it ! Side note, i had over 2000 sq ft of area to cover in Rock Hill South Carolina 2021 and the surface area is very cool to the feet even on very hot days.

Beautiful finish
My finished steps look amazing. Definitely take your time using granite grip. Remember that your not using a regular paint on a wall. 1st coat is just for a base. 2nd coat coverage was better but Definitely not enough. 3rd coat I poured on and spread. That was Definitely the key to this but don't don't it until the 2nd or 3rd coat. I believe my white steps played a huge part in still seeing the white bleed through. I didn't do a 4th coat but had some touch up spots. Be patient and take your time and you will have beautiful results! I tried to add before and after pictures but it only allowed me to post 1 pic!

At this time I am saying it is a poor product
Have a concrete contractor coating my driveway. It is a new house and new concrete. He did etch the concrete and proceeded to coat the driveway. We also have him do the front and back porch. All he had was problems coating the concrete. Did it according to Behr instructions. after the second coat all the roller did was kept lifting the product back up and mad it look like popcorn ceiling. The stuff dried way to fast and we figured that the dried stuff was sticking to the roller. but we were doing 3ft x 5ft sections. Next he tried a soft squeegee. That well and kept it smooth but the product that Behr instructions say two coats, no way does it cover. My contractor will also be complaining about doing three coats instead of two coats and now he is on the third coat and we are seeing different shades and some spots need another thin coat. He is not happy and I am not happy. Not being able to use my driveway for now 8 Days and he is still doing coats on the driveway.

Response from BehrMay 25, 2021
Hello oskar, thank you for your review. I’m so sorry the paint was drying so fast and isn't covering well. Typically the two recommended coats will provide the coverage needed, though additional coats may be needed to fully cover the previous surface. I recommend applying another coat across the project using an adhesive roller. You can also thin the paint if needed with up to 4 ounces of water per gallon to help extend the working time of the paint. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to our Customer Care team directly for further assistance with this. Our team is happy to help you! -Joni Behr
Covers well with brush looks cool
I covered the gray concrete floor pan of my shower with a gray color. So.....I dont have as tough a bleed through situatuon as others. And my area was small enough where i could use a brush. I started witha rollee but ditched that for a brush. I did two coats and i think it looks great. Would like to use on other projects. I cannot see the brush marks. Also I cannot soeak to how well this eill hold up over time. Included pics of first coat in progress, first coat, then second close close up snd total project.

How many coats you really need
Thought this was going to be great on our 500 sq.ft. Lanai in Florida. Was going over a terracotta color. On our 4th coat now!! Someone shoot me for trying this paint. I’ve watched numerous videos and we are applying according to all instructions & others reviews, with the adhesive roller covers, as recommended. You can see all the roller marks no matter what we did. Applied it think, thin, rolled less, rolled more, etc. we had professional painters doing it, so our simple paint job budget more than doubled$$$!!! OUCH! Not to mention we are on the 4TH 5-GALLON BUCKET NOW @ $225 per 5Gallons! OUCH!!! Never, ever again nor can I recommend this junk.

POOR ADHERENCE PRODUCT!
This product peeled up after 1 year. We did the application prep correctly the first time. What a mess we had to get a grinder to remove some parts that did adhere and spend money getting a stamped overlay. This was used on a new sidewalk that was a year old. I should have never touched it. Don’t waste your money. We removed it all , reprepped the sidewalk and tried it a second time. The picture is from the second application.
