Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
Preparation & PrimeBlank space if empty.

New and Uncoated Concrete or Masonry Surfaces:

  • New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days.
  • For proper penetration and adhesion of topcoat, use a concrete & masonry cleaner and etcher to clean and etch the surface. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. Follow all label instructions.
  • Apply a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer No. 880 to increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface. Follow all label instructions.

Painted, Stained or Sealed Concrete:

  • Option 1- To completely strip the entire surface, use a concrete & masonry paint stripper product.
  • Option 2- To recoat over an existing coating, remove any loose or peeling paint and scuff sand the surface.
  • Clean previously coated surfaces in sound condition.
  • Clean and etch any bare concrete surface.
  • Spot prime all uncoated areas with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM Concrete & Masonry Bonding Primer No. 880 to increase adhesion of topcoat to the surface. Follow all label instructions.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • DO NOT THIN. Intermix all cans of same product to ensure color uniformity. Stir stain before and occasionally during application.
  • Use product when air and surface temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-32°C).
  • Apply a thin, even coat using a 1/4"-3/8" nap roller cover, pad applicator or a nylon/polyester brush at a spread rate of 400-600 sq. ft. (37-56 m2) per gallon. Use long, even strokes in one direction to avoid lap lines.
  • Since concrete varies in texture/porosity, two coats may be required for uniform color appearance. Apply a second coat (in a criss-cross direction) if uniformity is needed. Recoat after 2-4 hours. Periodic touch-ups may be necessary.
Dry TimeBlank space if empty.
  • Longer dry time required in cooler temperatures and in higher humidity.
  • Allow 24 hours for light foot traffic.
  • Park tires on corrugated cardboard for 14 days after applying stain. After two weeks, dry stained surface may be cleaned with a mild, non-abrasive liquid detergent.

BEHR PREMIUM® Solid Color Concrete Stain is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect look I used a good number of other brand paints prior, but now I have been using behr paints for over 20 years. I decided to try the Solid concrete stain on our outside concrete patio which is about 80 years old, thats right the concrete according to the previous owner laid the concrete in 1940.I filled in some small cracks & It was cleaned good & I used the primer as suggested and it came out perfect. It has held up great as we are only a few hundred feet from the ocean. Everyone that sees it is amazed. We highly recommend it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Coverage! I used this stain on an old concrete basement floor. It was covered with rust stains, oil and dirt. I cleaned the floor with a diluted muratic acid solution, rinsed and then applied the stain. One coat covered! I used two and then applied two coats of the Behr Sealer. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think OUTSIDE the PAINT 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."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stained Twice with Two Colors 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from In need 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tennis court coating 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to put down 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting I panted my concrete 2 season ago and it is just now looking like it need sone touch up. It is the area next to my driveway which gets a lot of traffic so I thought I would need to do this every spring. but that is not true

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Somewhat durable Have had it on my driveway (rough concrete) for a couple years. First the coverage was nowhere near what the label says but Behr was nice enough to provide me with an extra gallon. It does come off when hot tires are parked on it and I've had mildew starting with my second summer - will have to pressure wash it and that will probably blow off some of the stain requiring re-application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pool Deck Coating I just completed re-coating the pool deck with this concrete stain and it worked great. I have used this same stain before and the results have always been perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on easily and lasts I used this product five years ago and now using it again. I prepped my concrete per instructions on the label and the video, it worked great. I am glad it is soap and water clean up. Easy to use. Saw another review where the pic showed the tires picking up the stain - yep poor prep will result in that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Coverage I use Behr on all my interior and exterior paint projects professionally and personally . This concrete stain had great coverage and u can choose many colors. Make sure to etch your concrete let dry completely. 1 coat went on ok but started chipping off after 6 months I would recommend 2-3 coats.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from REFRESHED Our pool deck was worn and sad looking. A splash of color was just what she needed to look refreshed. The color we chose went really well with the brick house and made the blue color of the pool stand out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great colors I bought the concrete stain to stain my concrete pool floor inside my enclosed pool house. It looks wonderful and was so easy to roll on the 1200 sq ft floor. I love the color and the easy application. Would never use anything but Bear paints and stains on all my projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great Covered all the stains in the original concrete. Looks great. It was hot out when I applied it so the last part I did had spots from my sweat dropping on it. I'm not sure if shoveling the snow off of it will cause scratches but I think it will.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage and durability This stain brought life back to our outdoor hang out area. This stain saved us thousands of dollars by not having to redo our concrete. We just power washed and applied. All our friends loved it.
