Answer This Question

A:  Hi Laurel, thanks for writing in with your question. You do not need to use a primer as DryPlus works best on bare or untreated surfaces. The surface should be sound and clean before applying the recommended two coats. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

    A:  Hi Tami, thank you for your interest in our products and reaching out with your question. We recommend allowing your last coat of paint dry for at least 24 hours before exposing it to rain or moisture. We hope this information helps. Best of luck with your project. Have a great day. -Joanna

      A:  Since it is best to consider a 2-coat application on surfaces that have never been painted, I would recommend doing the first coat the night before, letting it dry overnight, and then applying a second coat the following morning.

      A:  Hi Adam, Thank you for writing in. Behr Dry Plus Masonry Waterproofer can be applied to oil and water-based coatings. However, I recommend contacting Drylok's manufacturer to ensure their product can be topcoated with water-based a paint/waterproofer. Best of luck with your project! ~Doris

              Q:Can I use this product on an indoor ceiling?

              A:  Considering that the product can be used on concrete, brick masonry and cinder block, I would expect it would also work on drywall and stucco ceilings. That said, my only question is that given the major advantage of the product is its waterproofing capabilities, unless your ceiling has a leak, why use this product instead of regular ceiling paint?

              by|May 31, 2020

                A:  Hi diyLiveInHome, Thank you for your question. We recommend applying this product to vertical masonry, cinder block, stucco, and brick walls only. You may want to reach out to your local Home Depot for some suggestions on a similar product that is suitable for waterproofing an ceiling. Best - Sara

                by|May 28, 2020

                  A:  No, the Behr Dry Plus isn’t recommended for interior ceiling projects.

                    A:  Hi diyLiveInHome, Thank you for your question. Our Dry Plus Masonry Waterproofer was designed for porous concrete walls (both below and above grade) that are subject to hydrostatic pressure. It can also be applied to both dry and slightly damp vertical surfaces. Best - Sara

                      A:  Hi diyLiveInHome, Thank you for your question. We recommend using a fast setting hydraulic cement to repair any cracks or holes in the surface before applying this product. Best of luck with your project! - Sara

                      by|May 27, 2020

                        A:  I like this question. I may not have done what I am recommending but will certainly recommend for you and me if I need to do it again. Since all purpose is not normally waterproof, I would paint first, spackle and then paint over the compound. If waterproof paint works like it should, this should prevent the compound from getting soft.

                        Q:Can this be used on a flat surface like a concrete patio? Can it be sprayed with a garden sprayer?

                        A:  It is very thick paint. garden sprayer will never work- however you can use an airless (dry-loc cannot be sprayed) I just don't see why you would want this on your patio - there are many products much better for that.

                        by|May 20, 2020

                          A:  Hi Sed, Thank you for your questions. We don't recommend applying this product to a concrete patio or any horizontal concrete or masonry surface that will be subjected to foot traffic. This product can also be applied with an airless sprayer capable of delivering 0.5 GPM or greater and a .023-.025" spray tip. You may want to reach out to your local Home Depot for some suggestions on a similar product that will hold up on a patio floor. Best of luck with your project! - Sara
