Q:Do I need to etch a garbage floor if it is recently just poured? It has not been used yet.
by|May 21, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Grego, thanks for the question. If the floor was recently poured, it needs to cure for at least 30 days, and the surface should be etched before applying the Natural Protector and Waterproofer. Have a great day! -Ronald

    Q:Can this be applied over concrete stain? https://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-PREMIUM-1-gal-PFC-63-Slate-Gray-Solid-Color-Flat-Interior-Exterior-Concrete-Stain-80001/203939829

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi there, thanks for the question. Our Natural Protector & Waterproofer should be applied directly to bare concrete and shouldn't be applied over another coating. The concrete stain wouldn't let the Natural Protector & Waterproofer penetrate the concrete. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald

      Q:Does the warranty mean that my driveway will bead water for 10 years?
      by|May 16, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi gdub, thank you for your question. The warranty means that water will not penetrate your concrete for 10 years. The water may stop beading after some time, but as long as the concrete is not absorbing the water and getting darker (when water is absorbed), then you are good. Please reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. Have a great day! -Giovanna

        Q:Hi is this ok for exterior unpolished granite pavers.. I saw the Low luster sealer is not recommended.. What's the difference between the products. Thanks
        by|May 15, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi Joseph, thank you for your question. We do not recommend our sealers on granite. The Waterproofer is a penetrating product and will not have a gloss as the Low Lustre Sealer. I recommend checking with your local store for a recommendation on a suitable product to use for your project. Have a great day! -Giovanna

          Not impressed
          I applied this to half of my driveway and used Valspar for the other half as a comparison. This product does not make the water bead up at all. I applied per instructions after pressure washing my driveway. I’m very disappointed. The Valspar equivalent made the water bead up and appears to be a much better product. Left side of the photo is Behr and the right side is Valspar.

            water really beads up but what happens when it freezes?
            Applied this waterproofed to a driveway that has a brushed finish. Water really beads up but what happens if there's a mild winter day that melts some snow and then the beads freeze overnight?

              Beads up and good after 3 months
              Love how the water beads up. Looking forward to seeing if it lasts as long as expected but so far so good. I don’t believe it went as far as expected when spraying it out but still happy overall.

              Worked for me
              Have a lot of new concrete that needed sealing. Pressure washed and waited 24 hrs. While applying it, I was worried because it was dark and looking uneven. However as it cured, all was good. No signs of the product whatsoever and after watering some plants there was water leaking but it beaded up like mercury. Worth the price.

                Still works, 1 yr later
                I applied last year. I was only able to do half my driveway before running out of product. This photo was taken this year. Initially the rain would bead up and not penetrrate into concrete. That's worn off but the clean color of driveway still holding up. I think this is a good product.

                  Makes puddles everywhere
                  So disappointed with this stuff. Makes puddles everywhere that take forever to evaporate. The first rain after we applied it our deck was drenched with puddles for days after the rain. Street and everything else was long dry. Please tell me these puddles aren’t going to last for 10 years?

                  Hi Sam, Thank you for the review. Sorry to hear that you are having puddles that take forever to evaporate. The Natural Protector & Waterproofer isn't allowing the water to penetrate the concrete to help protect it. The puddling should subside as the product begins to wear. In the meantime, I'd recommend sweeping any standing water so it can evaporate. Customer satisfaction is important to us, and we appreciate your feedback. Please reach out to us directly if you need further assistance; our customer care team is happy to help you! -Ronald Behr

                    Contractor Recommended.
                    I was not sure at first because it's from Home Depot. And, as a contractor I have always used other high quality brands. But let me tell you, I have used it on several occasions to seal high quality Travertine, and I guarantee it. If someone has not had good results it is due to poor preparation.

                      Awesome Results
                      Consistency of milk, sprayed on. Did not change the color. When dried, did not look sealed, but after water sprinklers sprayed it, it all beaded up like mercury on a table. Very pleased.

                        It’s been a month and water is still beading up...
                        It’s been a month and water is still beading up like a freshly waxed car. My porches, driveway and garage are still looking clean and easy to maintain.

                        Great for Sealing New Concrete Planters!
                        I recently purchased two new concrete planters for the front of my home. It was recommended that I seal the planters to prolong their life and to keep the chemicals and additives used make the concrete from seeping into the soil over time and hurting my plants. After some research I chose the Behr Premium Natural Protector and Waterproofer. I chose this over the Low-Lustre and Wet-Look versions because I didn’t want any sheen. I liked the natural look of my planters the way they were. I just wanted to add some protection. This product went on wet and dried perfectly bringing the planters back to the way they looked when I bought them. I can’t attest to some of the complaints of white residue being left behind because my planters were designed already with that look. I did not notice any more white than what previously existed. After allowing to dry for 36 hours I sprinkled some water on them and the water bead right down the inside and outside. None of the water soaked into the planter! For my purposes, this product worked as promised with no issues. It went on easily with a nylon paint brush and cleaned off my hands and brushes with soap and water. Note: Use a drop cloth for this type of a project. Also wear old clothes and eye protection as mist created from brushing can get on your face and areas around you. I am very happy with the end result. As to the 10 year guarantee, we shall see. At this price I may reseal my planters in five years just to be safe. Oh, in case anyone is wondering, I used about a half gallon for two large planters on the inside and outside (approx. 22” wide by 30” tall). I know it seems like a lot of product to use, but the planters had a lot of textured surfaces and design which soaked up a lot of the sealant. I have no regrets and highly recommend this product.
