The Behr response to your question says that it is not for vertical applications, yet the product description on the Home Depot webpage states, "Ideal for interior and exterior, horizontal and vertical surfaces".

Does this stain need to be sealed after to maintain its color?

Asked by: Busymom3
Hello Busymom3, Thanks for your question. No, this highly durable stain is a standalone product so it doesn't need a separate sealer to go over it. If you'd like to add extra protection to the coating, though, there is the option to topcoat it with either our No. 985 Wet-Look Sealer or our No. 986 Low-Lustre Sealer. Well wishes for your project!

The negative reviews for this product are clearly from people who do not know what their doing and not capable of reading directions. If you pour wine on properly prepared concrete it will stain. If you use this product on properly prepared concrete it will stain. It doesn't matter what you use; if the intent is to penetrate (stain) the concrete then you must make the top of the concrete permeable. This is a stain; I really like that it is water based and very easy to use/clean up. I have used this product on new (unsealed) concrete and on concrete that is over a decade old. The unsealed concrete soaks this stuff up nicely and the consistency is "watery" enough to apply with a pump sprayer without issue. On one commercial application (a pretty busy bar) the floor was not scraped or etched but the stain did dry and adhere enough for me to apply Behr Low-Luster Sealer over the dried stain. The floor has held up nicely over the past two years and using this method allows you to repair areas that may get damaged from severe friction or other impacts. It's unfortunate that such a great product received these bad reviews for illegitimate reasons. I am a licensed General Contractor and some of the reviews here are why I refuse to take residential work. There are a lot of homeowners that just don't want to pay for a job done right so they take it on without knowledge or proper preparation and blame it on everything except themselves when it doesn't turn out as intended. Colors used in these pictures: Loden & Stone Moss Hopefully this helps someone considering this product but concerned about the reviews...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from False advertising This is not a stain as it states on the label, this is a paint. Applied this product step by step as stated in the instructions less than 9 months ago and it's peeling everywhere! Big waste of money and time and now I have to strip all of it off.

Looks great the first season, not bad the next season and redid it basically 2 years after the initial application because of peeling. First time I power washed, this time I used concrete cleaner because I wanted to layer on what was already there. Did not use any sealer afterwards, but am considering it this time around. Highlights: 1. Used a brush for the edges of the pool and the outside edges of the concrete. Those held up well, much better than the rolled on centers. However that would take an extreme amount of time and stain to brush my entire area. 2. Don't drag furniture on your stained concrete... 3. Dries quickly 4. For reference my pool is 12x24' and I needed 4 gallons the first time and 2 1/2 gallons the second time to stain my area. 5. Total staining time was just under 5 hours without cleaning and prep. 6. My concrete was 20 years old when stained and it really gave it a fresh look. Only grievance is that I will be doing this project every other year for the rest of my life...

I purchased this gallon of Behr Concrete Stain to touch up a concrete deck previously stained with the same product and then sealed with Ghost Shield, a premium transparent sealant. Unfortunately, after paying a supposed professional to follow prescribed prep and application processes, less than two years later the stain is seriously fading and, in some areas, chipping, particularly where exposed to direct sun. Seemed like a good idea when exploring options for restoring our patio, but this obviously wasn't the best solution.

THE CONCRETE WAS NEW ABOUT 8 MONTHS OLD. DID NOT USE THE ETCHING PRODUCT. JUST WASHED IT DOWN VERY GOOD WITH A HAND BRUSH WITH EXTENDED HANDLE. THE PREP IS THE HARDEST THING. MAKE SURE TO COVER EACH WALL BEFORE SPRAYING.FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS AND BE PATIENT TO LET EACH STEP DRIES BEFORE GOING TO THE NEXT STEP. I USED THE LOW LUSTER SEALER(LESS CHANCE OF IT BEING SLIPPERY) LOTS OF LITTLE GRANDKIDS WILL BE RUNNING AROUND ON THE PATIO. IT WAS VERY EASY TO APPLY. I USED A PUMP SPRAYER AND A 3/8 NAP ROLLER TO ROLL ON THE STAIN. DIDN'T USE THE SPRAYER FOR THE SEALER, JUST 3/8 NAP ROLLER. MAKE SURE IT'S COMPLETELY DRY BEFORE ADDING A SECOND COAT. I DID 2 COATS OF STAIN AND 2 COATS OF SEALER. IT LOOKS VERY BEAUTIFUL. WE ARE VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results! We followed another reviewers directions (BellaBee from 2013) and had a fantastic result! We tore the carpet up in our basement and rented a diamond blade sander to get all the adhesive off and then followed the same steps as BellaBee. It is KEY to do the proper steps for floor prep for this to turn out! After degreasin/cleaning then the etching/cleaning process I used a cotton tshirt to blot the first stain on which was Loden semi transparent. It dried quickly. Next color was Warm Shale. I grabbed another clean cotton cloth and patted it on at randaom. The last color was Chickory and I used it sparingly. We are thrilled with the floor. I ended up highlighting the cracks in our floor for interest. I let the stain in for 30 seconds and then dried brushed it. Fantastic! I also covered in two coats of Low Luster shine. We have received so many compliments on the high end look.

English brick is Home Depot orange. It is hard to scrub off after 5 minutes. I think mixing the rest of the gallon with water in my sprayer may actually give me a light stain. Through, in this orange color. Not what I wanted I got the 5 x 5 starter area down to a stain after scrubbing. I wish they would add more iron oxide and less mud color. Also, perhaps it should be something you add water to. Way to much work! It should go on and look great!
