Questions & Answers

Can I appy this to stucco exterior wall with hairline crack (water is seeping inside my window). Or would you recommend another product?

Asked by: Nick
Most of the answers are correct! The Behr Basement Waterproofer would be the final finish. Although it can withstand some PSI H20 pressure, only a filler/patch of hydraulic cement will block the water from pushing through. The Behr BWP will stop splashing water, etc once applied over the repair. Step one is always to clean and, or etch the surface. Step two is the patch/repair. Step three is the Behr BWP. Keep in mind that you can have the Behr product tinted to a desired color also for asthetic purposes.

Can this be used to seal regular brick patio pavers (non-travertine, non-specialty)? And what would be the best application method, spray or roller?
Asked by: DrewPeebols
Thank you for the responses. I have a lot of these pavers surrounding my pool, so I'm looking to seal them to protect and beautify somewhat; I obviously don't want a slippery surface.

Is this an Odor Blocker Also?

I was thinking of using Kilz Oil Based Primer and Sealer because it has an Odor Blocking trait. Does this block odor also?
Asked by: BigBern
Although this is not specifically an odor blocker, I did notice an improvement in the basement air after using it. A very subjective of a thing but worth mentioning.

1 gal. #BW-24 Austere Gray Basement and Masonry Waterproofer is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 153.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I sealed my concrete floor with two coats of this... I sealed my concrete floor with two coats of this waterproofing sealer paint, and it did an excellent job. One interesting sidelight: The first gallon was pure white, but the second gallon, although the label said "White", was actually a very pale grey. There was a small green sticker on the lid that said, Base 875, BW-34 Nimbus, 5/25/17 Not Returnable", as if it had been tinted light grey ("Nimbus"?) for someone else, but shipped to me. The color didn't matter to me, since the concrete slab was going to be covered with carpet.

Used this product to repaint a cinder block basement wall where the old waterproof paint was chipping. I scraped off where the old paint was loose and painted right over with this new waterproofer. The end result was very nice. The product is very thick and a little harder to work with than regular paint, but it adheres very nicely to the cinder block. I used a regular brush to paint the mortar between the bricks (which were deeper) then went over everything with a roller. The end result is a very consistent, bright white finish. The room looks a lot better (and the cats are no longer picking at the flaking old paint!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough paint I didn't do a whole lot of surface prep for a clean are block basement wall. Scraped it with a stiff brush and put on 1 thick layer with with a cheap brush with a few touch ups afterward. Some of the block was very slightly damp from condensation and it was no problem to paint over it. I just put a fan on it and it dried in no time. It was easy to apply, went on easily but not too drippy either. After a week or so I tested the adhesion with a wire brush and it took a lot of hard scraping to get through the layer of paint. It cleans up and touches up easily. There was a very slight ammonia smell but I had no problem painting indoors for hours with this paint. Its great if you can ventilate the area but it does not smell strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As others have said, this paint is thick and makes... As others have said, this paint is thick and makes even coverage difficult on rough, stucco-like masonry surfaces. A lot of pressure was required with the 1/2" nap roller to get enough paint into the pores to seal them. The extra time and effort to get complete coverage with the first coat was worth it, because the second coat went on in 1/3 the time and with a lot less effort. The second coat was definitely necessary to adequately cover surface discoloration. Surface area coverage was about right per the specifications. Now I wait to see how it performs this winter to seal out moisture. Then I'll know how to finish the recommendation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Appearance and Adherence Applied to unpainted dark gray cinder block walls to brighten appearance of basement After a month, it looks fine. Did not use primer. Brushed on heavy first coat to fill in pores; this was essential to obtaining good coverage in two coats. Applies smoothly, but allow plenty of time--especially for first coat. Paint is very thick and difficult to stir. I bought a gallon at a time, so HD could put paint in shaker shortly before application. Basement is dry, so cannot judge water blocking ability. No bad smell. Good appearance and adherence. HD Memorial week rebate of ten dollars per gallon was a nice added incentive. I'm a happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works to waterproof basement walls IF you follow directions Surface must be clean and dry - any moisture or efflorescence and it won't adhere, no paint will. You also need to solve leak source - paint won't stop a flood. I used it on a leaky basement laundry room. 1st redirected downspouts and graded soil away from house. Then cleaned interior bsmt walls with UGL etch. Spent 2 weeks with dehumidifier drying out walls to bone dry. Skimmed with Sacrete surface bonding cement and let dry completely (another 2 weeks). Two coats of Behr waterproofer and basement has been dry for a year - had been damp for 20! Take your time, follow instructions, and this is a great deal. BUT you need to solve your leak source whether drainage/grading or water supply/downspout. Wife wanted it tinted slate blue (over my objections) and must admit she was right, color looks good. Also have used this under foam board insulation when finishing basements.

I followed all of the directions. It seems to be working very well. I was just wondering though. There is a bit of a discolor coming threw in a couple of spots. I read all of the other responses that BEHR has put on to other persons questions and they said that it would work on the stone. This was the first time this has been done and it has made a considerable difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really satisfied, exceeded my expectations My Portland basement had several moisture intrusion points, no water necessarily, but definitely the cement would get wet. I applied the product during fall and now that is February I haven't seen any moisture problems at all, my basement is still dry and the smell has improved a big deal. Pretty thick to apply. The most troublesome moisture point shows a yellowish stain, but that happened within hours of application, the cement was permanently moist; after a few months now, the stain hasn't increased. I would have tinted the color if I would have known that it was bright white, but I was determined to finish the project so I went ahead with white. Very satisfied.
