Rated 1 out of 5 by from Protects but extra work in winter Applied in September and it repels water but don't put it on in MN because concerns of the water that beads up after snow or rain will turn to ICE as it gets colder. Will have to scrap it off each time. Not convenient

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could be five star... time will tell? The only issue I have thus far is the lack of information on the label/online. The bottle lable you need a magnifine glass to read. It doesn't say what the base chemical is used. There's no info for applying a second coat or applying in the sun. I bought this based on the label says it last 10yrs... Hope it does! I will say it didn't change the color of the concrete and did dry evenly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT a attempt to re-coat 24 hours later! Instructions clearly state, “Recoat: 24 hours.” Well guess what, when you do that you wind up painting whatever it is you use this stuff on WHITE - what A Nightmare! We never should have gotten away from using poly-urethane -based “Lasti-Seal” (which is clear, Clear, CLEAR!) but, this stuff was half the price and so now we are paying for it, BigTime. What A Nightmare!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had our doubts, we were proven wrong. We never thought this product would work as well as it did. After power washing our concrete walkway and waiting for it to dry, we applied the Behr Premium Concrete and Masonry Protector and Sealer. It was easy to apply had the job done in a very timely manner. I said to my husband "Doesn't look any different". He said, "hopefully it will repel water and stay clean longer". Well that it did. The next day it rained and beaded beautifully. Thanks Behr for a great product, we give it a 10.0

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far— two thumbs way up!!! I purchased this to apply to my concrete countertop to protect and provide moisture proofing in a bathroom environment. It went on super easy, clean up was easy and best of all, It did not change the look of my concrete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results I applied this on my patio pavers, originally installed 5 to 6 years ago. I used the natural finish and the color of the pavers did not really change much. I was a bit disappointed till I threw a little water out on the surface. It beads up like a duck's back! Wow, am I impressed! Two hours later and NO signs of penetration at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent at repelling water Bought this product to prevent mold from growing on my concrete patio. After applying this product, water just beads up and rolls off the concrete. It's amazing to see beads of water looking like diamonds on the patio following a rain. Since the concrete no longer stays wet for days mold doesn't grow on it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Dissatified I used 11 Gallons with a sprayer to apply product on a 1 year old large driveway...yes it went on easily & water beads up on the cement...however my driveway is fairly flat so the beads will stay until evaporated or blown off & in the fall if leaves get caught in the water beads they will leave a stain...I would think if this is waterproof it would also be stainproof for minor things like leaves. I now have to go out after rain or snow & make sure no leaves are on the driveway.. It seems like I have given myself more work rather than less...I didn't have a problem before I applied the product & I hope the product dosen't last as long as the warranty !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY GOOD Water Repellant Bought this product because we know Behr to be good products and also because they had a $20 coupon available (for a short time). The waterproofer was able to be applied a month later to our driveway and sidewalk. Started applying it using a roller. That was OK but it seemed that using the roller was a lot of work. Our son had just finished applying the same product to his driveway and sidewalk, but he used a sprayer. He loaned it to me and I finished our driveway and sidewalk with the sprayer -- it gave a very even, and smooth application to the surface. The Water Repellant dried in a day and since then it has rained and snowed. Ice formed on the driveway and my wife went out and used our electric blower to clear off the whole driveway. She said it was fun watching the ice blow off the driveway! We (and our son) will surely use your product again in a few years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, very good. I applied this product to my parents pavers and so far, it seems to be working very well. It only had half a summer use so long term quality is yet to be determined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have been easier! Just sprayed it onto a 1400 sf concrete floor with a weed sprayer. Took very little time and it works great!!! Took only a day to really be dry. Highly recommend and will use again if needed on something else. Whoever says it's hard to apply...I can't even think of how this would be! It is soooo easy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy product to use I was looking for a good product at a reasonable price. I went to my local Home Depot and Ken, who was at the paint department, recommended the product. It was easy to apply. I used a sprayer and back rolled it with a 3/8 nap roller. It is very important that you ensure the surface is clean. I was concerned as we got unexpected rain within 24 hours, but the product seems to have held up. The water immediately beaded of the driveway. Overall, I am happy with the product. I will have to wait until next year to see how it holds up. I live in NC and the sun hits my driveway for the majority of the day. I am avoiding parking my vehicles on the driveway for at least 48 hours. So far, fairly satisfied with the product. By the way, this product does not change the color of the cement when dry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all purpose concrete sealer I used this on a driveway with a steep pitch and it worked very well. The coating was perfect it sealed the driveway with no sheen which is what the customer wanted and it rained after we did it and it was non slip.
