    A "professional" tile contractor applied Behr Low-Lustre Sealer to the grout of our ceramic tile floors throughout our home after first applying a stain/sealer on the grout. He splashed the sealer on the tile which makes the tile appear dirty. It's a mess! Any suggestions are appreciated.

    This sounds easy and PERFECT, but having used the sealer on a small covered porch that had been stained with a Behr product, I cannot recommend it. Waiting 24 hours between layers, I applied as instructions indicate, putting down two three thin layers. The floor now has a milky appearance and looks terrible. The Customer Service at Behr was friendly and nice, but suggested stripping all layers of Behr productand starting over might be the only solution!! I must admit, we did have unexpected rain 12 hours after I applied the last coat, but I am so sad about the appearance and unsure as to how to proceed. I think it would have been worth an investment of a professional.

    Maybe the very worst product I have ever used.  Do not use!  Applied as directed in a very light coat.  Very milky appearance and now I have a total mess.  Behr customer service was good but the product is terrible.  Check out the reviews.  There are people who make their living removing this product.

    Well, well, well.  And to think I was on the verge of trying this stuff, which according to the comments is an invitation to a NIGHTMARE !    Had favorable experience with Behr  fence stain, but looks like the search for driveway sealant will continue.  Wondering if the LOW LUSTER introduces the problems.  Really don't want anything but a natural appearing concrete driveway.   Compared to organic chemistry class (many years ago) this driveway sealant project is becoming a  bigger headache.

    I have found that a low lustre sealers in general have very little protection and make the floor look like raw unfinished looking floor and as most are just a waste of time and money. I use and low lustre before grouting a new floor "Only" to keep the grout from staining. EVERY I MEAN EVERY customer where I have used low luster doesn't like the dull finish and I have had to go back and use HIGH GLOSS.   I highly recommend the high gloss Behr wet look sealer and it works GREAT and makes the surface new, wet and clean.

    is there any way to correct a milky result without stripping hopefully something simple?

    Wish I'd read these comments before letting my contractor use this product. Unfortunately, I didn't and now my new flagstone porch and walkway are that awful milky color. Makes me absolutely sick. I'm on the phone with Behr customer service right now and am hoping to get some help with this. At least customer service was easy to reach by phone and the gentleman who answered is very polite and trying hard to be helpful. Fingers crossed!

    Lots of negative comments here. I just used 8 gallons on our new driveway and it looks great. It looks like i did nothing which is what I wanted, but know it's sealed.
