I have used this product for several customers; always with good results. The key is the prep and having stable site conditions. Use a wet Diama-Brush system on a flooring machine (or *really* thorough acid wash until the top 'cream layer is etched to a 150 grit surface), vacuum up slurry, and rinse/pressure wash while using a deck brush (2x). Repair cracks larger than 1/8" with appropriate cement-based product; next, even though Behr says its not necessary, I recommend a thin coat of Seal-Krete Original primer applied with a foam squeegee. Apply GG according to manufacturers instructions -- spraying is *highly* recommended. Remember to stir the paint to resuspend the granules *every* time you fill the hopper (or paint tray). First coat should be applied light, then back rolled (adhesive nap roller only). Follow up coats can be applied more heavily, always back rolling in random directions. I've found that when sprayed, the coverage is as suggested by Behr ~ 50sf per gallon (2 coats).
Wo would give a negative star Had a painter professdionally apply Behr Granite Grip concrete paint to my entry, following instructions precisely. Paint failed after six months, crating a very expensive and/or time consuming removal - or a patch job that will be hard to do and not look right. I would advise anyone against using this paint.

Ok, so I will make this short to help the people on the fence about this product. I was on the fence for a couple months about doing this project because of all these negative reviews. I went ahead and pulled the trigger because I figured most people that leave reviews are people that are upset and not happy with their purchase.
My end result looks amazing, I have a 12'x12' (144sq.ft.) patio so I bought the 5 gallon bucket thinking it doesn't go as far as they advertise. Well after 4 coats I still have half of the bucket left over. It is imperative that you read all of the instructions, from the prep to the installation. If you do not you will not have the final result you expect. Now they do recommend 2 coats but I did have to do 4 to get the result I wanted. The first coat is the hardest to apply but after I got the first coat on and let dry the following coats spread so much smoother than the first. I rolled the paint on with the adhesive roller that was recommended but I did see another review from someone that was able to spray it on, If I was going to do it again I would try this method. In all I had a full day applying this product after my concrete was clean and dry from the day before.
So if you are up for the work and willing to put in the time this product is for you and will come out great. If you are looking for something quick or looking for shortcuts you better go with a standard patio paint because this option is time consuming.
Follow the instructions and you will get a professional looking finish. Easy to apply and adhered very well to my concrete on my covered patio. You will definitely need to use two coats. The 2nd coat makes ALL the difference. Very impressive product !!!
I was looking for something to paint over ceramic tile in my outdoor summer kitchen. Tried a one part epoxy that didn't stick, even after power sanding to roughen tile. Remove it and used Granite Grip. Used three coats to get a beautiful, full covering of the dark green tile. Amazing stuff. First coat looks terrible but builds up with additional coats. Very satisfied.

Very durable and adheres well. You must follow the directions and use the Adhesive roller and a LARGE roller pan. Two coats required; three if the color change is drastic.
Fill up the roller, apply in 4 foot square, then use light pressure to spread it as evenly as you can.
Keep stirring because it can settle; use a 5 gallon pail to mix the gallons together, but you CANNOT roll out of the 5 gallon bucket, because you cannot control the amount on paint on the roller using a bucket screen.
The final product is amazing. Great texture, great look, great feel. Now the con: hard, hard, hard to apply evenly. I followed directions and still couldnt get an even finish. I looked up videos of what others did and most had to use more coats than needed and used a paint brush to fill in spots that were light. I would highly reccomend but i would research and watch videos before starting. I used 3 1/2 gallons for about 80sqft.
We used this around our indoor pool. The concrete floor under the 1970's carpet we tore out was a mess. We patched the large holes and then applied three coats of Granite Grip - and it looks amazing!
It completely changes the character of the room. We liked it so much that we also used it to re-surface the small downstairs kitchen floor as well.
