  • Mildew: Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product.
  • UNPAINTED METAL SURFACES: Ferrous Metals: Use SSPC-SP2. Remove all rust and mill scale using sandpaper, steel wool, abrasive blasting, or other abrading methods to create a profile on the metal’s surface.
  • Remove any residue, and clean the metal by scrubbing the surface with a solvent such as mineral spirits or acetone. Bare metal must be coated the same day it is cleaned.
  • Galvanized Metal, Aluminum & Other Non Ferrous Metals: Use SSPC-SP1. All oil film on new metal must be removed before it is painted.

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 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof Basement Walls I have had nothing but GOOD luck using Behr products. Used the waterproofer on our basement walls and floor, with amazing results. The basement is so much brighter and fresher smelling. It has lasted 6 years and no leaks. I highly recommend Behr.
Date published: 2016-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance and easy application! We purchased an older home with a leaky basement, and have tried a few different products to seal the walls. One waterproofing paint was so thick and sticky it was like painting with thick maple syrup. The second one didn't cover well and the smell was awful. I started to think we were going to have to hire a contractor if we were ever going to have a dry basement. After some serious frustration and quite a bit of money spent, we tried the Behr waterproofer. What a difference! The paint went on smoothly without any drag at all, even over some rough areas where the wall had been textured with sand. The coverage was great. It has been on the walls for a couple of months now and no water or moisture yet! Very pleased!
