Usage SummaryBlank space if empty.
PreparationBlank space if empty.

Proper surface preparation is required

  • New or Unpainted Surfaces: New concrete must cure for a minimum of 30 days. Test for loose, flaking concrete by pressing a piece of masking or cellophane tape at various places, then pull it off with an abrupt action. If the tape does not pull the concrete from the surface, it can be painted. If the existing concrete is removed, the loose concrete should be removed down to a sound substrate.
  • For below grade application: All holes or cracks must be properly patched with a fast setting hydraulic cement.
  • For above grade application: Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. All surfaces must be clean and free of dirt, dust, efflorescence and oil. Follow all label instructions.
  • Previously Painted Surfaces: BEHR DryPlus No. 875 provides best results when applied to bare or untreated surfaces. PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES IN GOOD, REPAINTABLE CONDITION MAY BE PAINTED WITH BEHR PREMIUM NO. 875, HOWEVER, BEHR WILL NOT GUARANTEE THE RESULTS. Test for loose, flaking paint by pressing a piece of masking or cellophane tape at various places, then pull it off with an abrupt action. If the tape does not pull the paint from the surface, it can be painted. If the existing paint is removed, the loose paint should be removed down to a sound substrate by wire brushing or sanding. For Interior or Exterior application; remove deteriorated coating prior to application. Follow all preparation instructions under “New or Unpainted Surfaces” above.
ApplicationBlank space if empty.
  • Stir well before use.
  • Do not thin product.
  • Use with adequate ventilation.
  • Use product when air and surface temperature are 50-90˚F (10-32˚C). Apply to dry or slightly damp masonry walls. Wipe off any visible moisture with a dry cloth before painting.
  • Apply using a high quality 1/2"-3/4" nap roller, 4" nylon/polyester brush or an airless sprayer capable of delivering 0.5 GPM or greater using a .023"-.025" spray tip.
  • Two coats minimum are required: First Coat: Using a brush or roller, work the waterproofer onto the surface until any all pores or voids are covered. Second Coat: Using a brush or roller, cover the entire surface. Properly fill any voids left after the first coat. Additional spot application may be needed depending on the porosity of the surface.
  • Important: If leaking is still present after two coats, it indicates that voids or pinholes are still open. Re-apply product to these areas. DO NOT thin product or apply at a greater spread rate.
Dry TimeBlank space if empty.

  • Full cure should be reached in 7-14 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr Dryplus is great for ugly basement walls! I've used Dryplus to coat and seal the basement interior walls on several homes, both block and poured concrete. It provides a smooth, dry vapor and moisture barrier that brightens the basement and is easy to maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the difference My home is cinder block and has nothing on the outside so over the winter it began to mold the inside. Prepped the wall and applied this and no moisture has come through anymore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Waterproofer I used this on the concrete floor and brick walls in an old basement. It not only made it look fresh and clean, but also helped keep it dry. The basement grey color looks beautiful & the waterproofing aspect has really helped keep the basement dry. It was fairly dry originally but occasionally with the heavy rains some water would seep into the basement in certain areas. This has put an end to that problem. While I don’t think it’d fix major water problems, for minor issues it makes a big difference & so I’d highly recommend it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behr gets the job done right I had to get my house sold and they required the outside basement stairwell to be painted. I came in the middle of the night and almost got it done with one coat. I missed a bunch of spots trying to paint at night, so I hit it with a second coat. My house sold a week later. very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Great! We had this tinted one of the gray colors and rolled it on our 6 month old bare concrete basement walls. It is a bit thicker than regular latex, but not too bad. We didn’t have any moisture or water issues, although we do run a dehumidifier in the summer. We are very pleased with this paint. We also epoxied the floor and sprayed the unfinished ceiling white. It looks so clean and bright now. Love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from went on well, looks good. Painted two coats on cinder block basement exterior walls. was thinner than normal which seemed to help it "soak" in to the block. To early to know how well it will waterproof as we have not had rain yet. I'm confident in behr products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth application. Nice choice of colors Have used competitor product previously in many homes that I have owned. I have had decent luck but after reading reviews of this product I decided to try it on basement shower room walls. Goes on smoothly and ofor is at a minimum. Great coverage. I am waiting the 14 days before use. Dampness in corner gone. Musty smell gone. Will review again after using shower
