Behr Premium Waterproofer Review 2.7/5 (3)

Behr Concrete Waterproofer

Behr Concrete Waterproofer

A premium interior/exterior waterproofing formula that uses the latest water-based silicone technology designed to penetrate surfaces up to 1/2″. This waterproofer creates a barrier inside the surface that keeps water out, but lets trapped water vapors escape; reducing corrosion, spalling, efflorescence and freeze-thaw damage. It reduces staining due to mold, mildew, algae growth and ensures greater durability of the surface. The protection is not worn away with normal use. It protects long after the water beading is gone!

Concrete Sealer Ingredients: Silicon

Concrete Sealer Type: Invisible Water Repellent. Does not change appearance.

Behr Premium Waterproofer Scores (1-10)

Ease of Application: 7

– The Behr Premium Waterproofer is very thin in consistency and looks like you are applying white water. The issue we had is that the sprayer kept getting clogged from large white chunks in the sealer. After running the sealer through a screen, we did not have any more issues. Very frustrating though!

Water Repellency: 7

– After a few days, we tested the Behr Premium Waterproofer with a hose. Light saturation on the water beaded well. Heavy saturation and the sealer did not repel the water very well.

Cost per foot: 9

РAt $22 a gallon, the Behr Premium Waterproofer is very inexpensive. We used 2 gallons for our 400 sq. feet area.

Durability/Spalling After 2 Years: 4

– After 2 years the Behr Premium Waterproofer did not bead any water at all. Checking with reviews online at HD, there are many customers who have had similar results.

Warranty: 0

Behr Premium Waterproofer comes with a supposed 10-year warranty. Unfortunately, Home Depot would not cover the warranty or even give us replacement product. The warranty is “limited”, meaning they do not cover normal wear/tear and natural weather.

Overall Score Behr Premium Waterproofer: 5.4

– This concrete sealer and water repellent is a waste of time. Typically poor quality from Behr and a trumped up warranty that is useless.

    Is anyone familiar with the product.."Frogskin", a silicone based concrete sealer? Any success stories? Or negative feedback? Trying to decide on a product for a 2nd floor concrete deck,approx 1000sf. Area is exposed to the elements in coastal Louisiana (Lafitte). Product cannot make concrete slippery!!

      Super Diamond Clear is a great product that usually gets 2 seasons here in Michigan. It is a high gloss/wet look though and you may want to see if you can add an anti-slip to the product before applying.

  4. Judy says:

    This is truly a waste of money and time. Coverage was much less then stated for use on pavers. A 5 gallon can mentions 1250 ft.², the coverage I received was 300 ft.² When dry, the sand between the pavers washed out during the first rain storm.
