I wouldn't recommend using a sprayer--a good stiff masonry brush is best for the 1st coat, then roll on the second, and you'll have better results on your project and MUCH LESS wear and tear on your sprayer system. This is a thick product and might clog your sprayer.

Yes. I sprayed this product with a Graco 495 with a 517 tip on full bore. No problems, worked like a champ. Spray product on and backroll with a 3/4 nap. Didn't even need a brush. Spraying this product is my preferred choice for this product... pressing a 9" inch roller into concrete all day gets old real quick.

Question

Can I have the paint custom-colored?

Asked by
Basement Trogg
New Providence, NJ
about 5-gal. Basement and Masonry Waterproofing Paint on
March 26, 2012
I bought six gallons of Behr basement and masonry paint and had them tinted one of the colors in the product brochure. Looks good in the can, but dull and dingy on my basement walls. I have to buy additional paint for subsequent coats, so would like to switch color, moving to a custom shade I have elsewhere in my house. It's in the same color family and of the same intensity as the first coat, but cool-toned rather than warm-toned. Any issues?

Dear Basement Trogg,

Just confirming that the response below by Designing Woman should be accurate painting the new color selection over the previous color if it's in the same color family. If there is a significant color difference then it would just take more than one coat to hide the previous color.

Thanks for your inquiry!

Hello Basement Trogg and thank you for your question.

Putting cool tones over warm should be okay but the experts suggest trying it in an inconspicuous (sample) area first to see how it looks.

If the bottom layer (warm-toned layer) is coming through, apply a second coat.

Contact Behr Technical Support at 800-854-0133 (option 2) for more specific instructions if the color still does not suit your desired look.

Best wishes with your project.

Hi Jim,

As in your later question, please see our (Behr's) response below.

Thanks for your interest in our Behr Premium Basement & Masonry Waterproofer. The Basement & Masonry Waterproofer does not require a primer on new basement walls. However the following steps are required prior to application. 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. All holes or cracks must be properly patched with a fast setting hydraulic cement. Please refer to the product label for detailed prep and application instructions. Thanks again for your interest in our Behr Premium Basement & Masonry Waterproofer, as it will protect your basement walls from water pressure up to 12 PSI and provide a 10 Year Satisfaction Guarantee.

Hello Jim!

Behr Basement and Masonry Paint is designed to embed into the concrete or masonry surface and hold back water coming from outside.

According to the manufacturer, "It is designed for porous masonry surfaces and withstands up to 10 PSI of hydrostatic pressure and 98 mph wind-driven rain. This low odor, mildew resistant water proofer provides a smooth, decorative finish that can be sprayed, brushed, or rolled. Ideal for use on above and below grade walls, retaining walls, garage walls, masonry walls, cinder blocks, stucco, brick, foundations and landscape walls."

DO NOT PRIME:
The product penetrates into the porous surface to help seal the surface from hydrostatic pressure (water coming from outside under pressure up to 10 PSI), so you should not prime the wall.

When a product is labeled "two coats are recommended," it is an indication that the product should not be applied thicker. This prevents flaking and peeling that often results when the product is applied thicker.

Dear Curious,

Thank you for the followup question. The Basement & Masonry Waterproofer does require at least 2 coats minimum to achieve product performance. The most important aspect of the first 2 coats is to ensure you fill all pinholes and cracks. We highly recommend using fast setting hydraulic cement to help fill pinholes and cracks prior to application. You are welcome to apply additional coats for added durability or color preference. Three coats should be sufficient for most projects but avoid going beyond 4 coats.  Please refer to the product label for proper preparation, application and spread rate per gallon.

October 1, 2012
Dear Bo,

Our Basement and Masonry Waterproofer will cover existing water stains as long as there is no active water leak present. Please clean the surface prior to applying the coating. Below are the preparation and application instructions for your reference.

WHERE TO USE: Walls subject to hydrostatic pressure. Ideal for above or below grade Basement Walls, Retaining Walls, Garage Walls, Masonry Walls, Cinder Blocks, Stucco, Brick, Foundations and Landscape Walls. Apply to dry or slightly damp surfaces. Not for use on floors or walls with active water leaks.

PREPARATION (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: Prime all uncoated, patched, chalky, and adjacent wood and/or metal surfaces with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. All surfaces must be clean and free of dirt, dust, efflorescence and oil. Clean surface with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM™ NO. 991 Concrete & Masonry Cleaner & Etcher. Follow all label instructions.

Previously Painted Surfaces: BEHR PREMIUM NO. 875 Basement & Masonry Waterproofer 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.

APPLICATION
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 @ 2,200-3,200 PSI 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 TIME
Low temperatures or high humidity conditions will affect drying time. Full cure should be reached in 7-14 days.

Thank you for the inquiry!

Dear Zach,

If there is a previous coating on the wall and it is still in good condition, you can apply the Basement and Masonry Waterproofer over it. Please keep in mind that since we would not know what the previous coating was, Behr cannot guarantee the results. This is the proper product for moisture resistance as it is specifically formulated for walls subject to moisture and hydrostatic pressure and is a mildew resistant film. It is ideal for interior or exterior, above or below grade basement walls, retaining walls, garage walls, masonry walls, cinder blocks, stucco, brick, foundations and landscape walls.

We would not recommend using a disc sander on the wall as it may damage the wall surface. Below are the preparation instructions for this product.

PREPARATION

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.

Hi T-Dog,

Thanks for your interest in our Behr Premium Basement & Masonry Waterproofer. The Basement & Masonry Waterproofer is ideal for concrete, cinder block, stucco, masonry and brick walls to help protect against hydrostatic pressure. The Basement & Masonry Waterproofer should be applicable on stone walls however we would highly recommended testing on an inconspicuous area first and follow all label instructions. A key preparation step would be to properly patch all holes and cracks with a fast setting hydraulic cement prior to application. Thanks again for considering our Behr Premium Basement & Masonry Waterproofer, as it will protect your basement walls from water pressure up to 12 PSI and provide a 10 Year Satisfaction Guarantee.
