Behr Wet Look Sealer Scores (1-10)
Wet Look: 3
– Wet look? The Behr wet look sealer barely changed the appearance of the stamped concrete surface even after two coats. Went on milky and dried milky as well.
Gloss Level: 3
– Behr claims that there sealer will leave a high gloss shine. After the two coast we barely saw any remnants of any gloss let alone a high gloss. Very misleading marketing from Behr.
Before applying a concrete sealer or water repellent it is typically needed to prep the surface first. Prepping consists of cleaning with water and using a chemical cleaner that is specific to the stain you are trying to remove. Cleaners for concrete and brick pavers come in many different formulas.

General Dirt and Grime Cleaning
When cleaning to remove dirt and grime you may just need water and a pressure washer. If the stains are stubborn, then a general all purpose concrete cleaner or even bleach would help with the washing.
