Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised Bought 6 gallons of this for a entire home's exterior masonry foundation wall & 3 concrete steps & landing. It was a textured concrete surface, I used a 6" wallpaper brush & it went on simply & effectively after prewashing all. The finish & look was dramatically altered, mom-in-law was elated, & so far after 2 winters has held up unflawed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer ever Our house was built in the 19th century. Who know if or what they primed with. We power washed away over 100 years worth of paint and “stuff”. We’re doing the last wall right now. A few repairs and it’s primer time. It will cover every repair and surface - and make it look brand new and ready for the final paint which will also be Behr.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BIG Change for Little $ In the last 5 years, I've painted my fence 4 times with BEHR Masonry Stucco Brick Paint. Two times it was off the shelf white to go with my HOA dictated house color. Once I chose a puny beige, because I was afraid to go too bold. And now, I chose a combination of 3 colors, mostly "Library Oak", with an accent wall of "Desert Clay" and a partial wall using "Kaffee". My favorite color is the "Library Oak", it really makes my plants and hardscape pop, without being too bright and overbearing. It's a minimal investment for a maximum change. The paint goes on easily and is a great DIY project for anyone. I love sitting on my patio and now I love it even more after painting the fence with a bold, but not too bold trio of Behr colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I have applied this to a gas fireplace surround and it looks great. It has transformed our dated brick and the matte finish is exactly what I wanted. It took 2 coats to cover and will need a little bit of touch up. I can not speak to the longevity of the product because it was just applied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't hold up I used this product as the directions stated. I applied 2 coats, went on great with good coverage. However, after the Winter, the paint started cracking and lifting. I used Behr because I've had good luck with the paints in the past. I ended up repainted the project with a different paint this Summer, we'll see how it holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage over stains A year ago I painted our block fence To cover up multiple unknown stains left by the previous owners and the coverage is excellent, barely used any paint. I then add swirl detail to brighten up the fence and it looks really good. Then yesterday I painted our patio floor in the same area to cover up stains from planters and grease stains from the barbecue and also again excellent coverage looks totally brand new!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Interior brick walls, in heat smells horrible I painted an additional room that is all brick a couple months ago. Noticed when it got warm strong stench occurred. Is this normal? Does it “de-gas” and go away? Worried about smell and possible fumes. Can’t even be in the room. Any other coating or anything that I need to do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product We used this on are new home that we purchased a year ago, what a FANTASTIC paint, I am not person who likes to paint, in fact I dread it, however this paint covered so well and went on so easy with a 1/2" nap roller that I actually enjoyed the project, it went on evenly and consistent even though the hand trolled surface was ruff, clean up was a breeze witch was a huge and most wecolmed plus. We have received positive comments from everyone who has come to our house since we painted. I have and will continue to highly recommend your paints to everyone. Thank you for such a superior product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Application, Great Coverage and Easy Cleanup We bought this to paint our foundation. It was great! It went on easy with a brush and rolled great for complete coveage and filled in the little cracks. It dried fast, looks great and was an easy cleanup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Applied on 24 year old stucco Used this to recolor stucco to compliment adjacent brick better. Hosed all dirt off the porous stucco and applied this paint with a 3/4" nap roller. Application was easy, but takes some effort to reach the innermost stucco crevices. A gallon went much farther than I'd anticipated, which was a welcome surprise. This paint didn't 'smooth out' the stucco texture too much, like some thicker paints would. It still maintained the texture correctly so it doesn't look like a repaint. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous finish! Bought this is a grey to paint checkerboard squares on our front porch to get great “curb appeal” when putting our home up for sale. Buyers loved it and asked our realtor how it was done. Sold house in 6 days to 3rd family to view! They wrote the contract sitting on the front porch!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME coverage! We used BEHR Brick,Masonry,Stucco paint. We got help from start to finish with your BEHR Representative in our local Home Depot. They took the time to show us the PRO's of each product line, and we chose this one. We sprayed ours onto the stucco of our house and we are very happy with the coverage and AFFORDABLE price points! It was a grey over a bright yellow. We now habe the best looking house on the block! THANK'S TO BEHR!
