I bought this in white the first time to do my fireplace in 1898 home. Staining that dark old brick was the best thing I ever did!
I went a step further and decided to do the old foundation to in "Inviting Veranda" to match the Behr porch and floor paint. In addition I purchased two other Behr concrete stains to make a sporadic color to the smooth face concrete block. You never have to worry down the line about scraping when using stain. If you get tired of it you can change it easily. Loved my choices and decided to seal the outside foundation with a gloss sealer.
I received many compliments from passerby's, other mason experts, and received a beautification award for my house from the city without even applying. People ask if that''s paint. My quick answer is "No. It's Behr Concrete Stain." [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The original, Coronado stain was actually a certain Texas football team color. Instead of stripping, I ordered Dark Walnut and applied it as a third coat using the sponge off method. Achieved the acid stain look, and so far no issues due to my nonstandard application method. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I applied this product to my patio. First I patched any cracks, then etched the concrete with muriatic acid and rinsed. Then I power washed to remove all the grit, then applied a coat of Behr Bonding Primer, and finally the Wet Cement Solid color stain. It does take two coats to get an even color. The concrete on the patio sucked up the stain. It transformed the patio. It is fresh and clean looking. I loved the results so much, I am now doing the portion of my driveway that goes behind the house. The color does not look painted, but like as the color says, wet concrete.
I bought 10 gallons of this product this spring and summer to stain my concrete driveway and walkway. The product is easy to apply and I really like the product. I need 4 more gallons of the products, but Home Depot has discontinued carrying the product. While I like the product but can't recommend the product since it isn't available.
We purchased this and applied it to our brand new sidewalk and patio. Since it was new construction and the pation was just poured, we didn't do all the prep and now it is 10 months later and it's peeling and flecking.....Lots of work and expense went into this....

Hi Newhomebuyer1 - Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that your sidewalk and patio are peeling! To ensure a long-lasting finish, we recommend removing the existing stain from you project, etching the surface, priming with our Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer, then applying the solid stain. For further assistance with this, please feel free to reach out to us directly. We're happy to help - Sara
I painted a full commercial ballroom 8-10 years ago with this product. The nice thing is when it does scratch I can touch it up and it always looks nice. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Just finished 1/2 of my tennis court I pressure washed the surface first removing dirt and cracked paint Then I applied 2 coats of green concrete stain The first coat soaked into the concrete and the second coat brought out the solid green that I was looking for
As a licensed general contractor for the 30 plus years I have used Behr paint for all my custom spec and remodeling projects
Thank you [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I have a stamped concrete pool deck. Live in New England, every year I put on a new coat or touch up. Takes about 4 hours either early morning or late afternoon in May. Pretty easy to use, and an even finish. Every so often even change colors! Would recommend if you want to save money and DIY. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
