If you have a wood porch, then view our video on How to Apply BEHR Premium® Porch & Patio Floor Paint (for wood).

It is essential to have a properly cleaned and prepped surface.

For new or uncoated surfaces, please refer to: Preparation of Uncoated Concrete for Paints & Stains.

For previously coated or weathered surfaces, refer to: Preparation of Coated Concrete for Paints & Stains.

For wood deck, porch, or patio, refer to: Preparation of New or Weathered Wood

  1. Applying porch and patio floor paint

    Step 1

    Once your surface is clean, prepped and primed, apply the Porch & Patio Floor Paint. Stir the paint before applying. Apply a thin, even coat using a 3/8" nap roller, pad applicator, nylon-polyester brush or airless sprayer.

  2. Rolling paint onto concrete floor.

    Step 2

    Do not thin paint if using a roller and brush, 

  3. Floor coating drying on the patio surface

    Step 3

    Let the coating dry. Coating will dry to touch in 1 hour, but allow at least 4-6 hours before deciding if a second coat is necessary.

  4. Beauty shot of finished patio

    Step 4

    Make sure that the surface is fully cured before use. Allow 72 hours for normal use and 4 weeks before rinsing or cleaning with a mild, non-abrasive, liquid detergent.
