    Eliminates Dampness
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I put this on my basement concrete walls in Chicago. The room temperature was warmer because of the eliminated dampness. It was really easy to apply with a roller.

      Horrible odor!
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Definitely need 2 coats to do the job. The room smells HORRIBLE. I have tried sitting out bowls of vinegar and baking soda to get rid of the odor in addition to opening windows and doors. Nothing is working to get rid of the smell.

      Response from Giovanna, Behr Customer CareSep 11, 2023
      Hello, thank you for your review. I'm very sorry to hear about the strong odor. This is not typical, and I can understand your disappointment. Because increasing the ventilation does not seem to be helping, I recommend priming with Kilz Restoration Primer to seal in the odors. I see you have contacted us and are being assisted. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns. Have a great day! -Giovanna
        Excellent long wearing paint
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had my front porch painted and after 3 years it still looks great. The awning is Behr paint too and it’s at least 7yrs since it was painted. Excellent products.

          Looks good at first but doesn't waterproof or seal
          The price of this has gone up a lot in the past couple years. It used to be around $120 for 5 gallons. We buy this because we want it to seal our basement walls, correct? It does not work. Efflorescence comes through after a few months. The only value of this is for a cosmetic topcoat over a waterproof cementitious layer. For effectiveness alone I can't recommend it. DryLock is equally worthless for waterproofing unfortunately

          Hi there, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that the DryPlus Masonry Waterproofer isn't sealing the walls as expected and that you are experiencing efflorescence after a couple of months. Customer satisfaction is very important, and our Customer Care team is on standby and ready to help. Please contact us directly so we can further assist you with a resolution. In the meantime, to fix the issue, I'd recommend that you remove the efflorescence by cleaning with soap and water, ensure the surface is completely dry, and then touch-up the area with another coat of the DryPlus Waterproofer. Again, our Customer Care team would like to hear from you to see how we can help. -Ronald Behr

            Great Waterproofing!
            Easy to apply, works great... have had no water issues since applying to my basement walls! Saves me so much time with no more water leaking through the block walls of my basement! I highly recommend Behr Dry Plus Masonry Waterproofer for anyone who has water issues!

              Better than other brands
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Goes on easier, fills gaps better. Whiter than other brands also. Much more coverage per gallon than competitor's version.

                Basement wall coverage
                Great product. Thick consistency. Easy to apply without dripping everywhere. Good coverage and not a lot of odor. Used in basement. Would recommend.

                Great for our basement
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have exposed brick on one side (the rest is dry walled) and it turned out so good! Thick but easy to paint on the cinder block.

                  A little pricey, but does the job.
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It's pretty good stuff. Covers well and doesn't crack..

                    Waterproof if you are thorough
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Even though this paint is listed under their exterior paints, it is not. Not meant as a foundation exterior membrane or coating as the soil acidity and outside exposure will not do its waterproofing abilities justice. If used indoors on a block or brick foundation and follow the directions it will waterproof. That said when used on block or cement (anything porous) apply 3 coats, period, or it will not get into all of the pores. I would choose Behr's brand waterproofer over the others, other brands add a grain into the paint which causes its early demise when anything rubs against it.. this stuff is a smooth layer when it dries. Tints well also if wanting it to be visible..

                        This is the best of the best product
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used this in my garage and in my laundry room. The results were impressive. Very little smell and great coverage. In fact, the coverage was second to none. I have tried other brands, but this is the best of any I used.

                            Great sealer for my basement
                            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My neighbor wanted me to use a different brand...but I went with this since I use Behr paint throughout my has. I glad I did since my walls sealed better and keeping my walls warmer and dry where his paint is chipping and looks bad. He is changing over to Behr now.

                                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am pleased with the results so far not finished completely yet. The only problem I had, when I reopened the can to finish..the paint dried out
