We just used Behr Wetlook sealer on our pavers. Per the instructions we rolled the sealer on the pavers. A milky appearance was immediate and hasn't gone away, and it looks terrible. Any thoughts on what went wrong and, more importantly, how we can fi it?

Thsnks for replying. It's a water-based sealer.

I sounds as if you may have applied the product to heavy as alot of these water based products go on milky and dry clear. It may go away with time or if it is not to large of an area you could scuf it it up to help it cure out.

I would be curious to see what BEHR says.

Here's Behr's reply:

"The Wet-Look Sealer can be removed with a methylene chloride base paint stripper. You may also want to use a pressure washer in conjunction with the stripper."

Frankly, I'm scared to touch the pavers since we followed Behr's instructions the first time.

I have found a company who says they can fix it (for around $600). It's around 1000 square feet. :(

Did Behr give you any idea why they think this happened?

No, Behr said that we followed the instructions and that we used the appropriate amount (based on the square footage and the amount left in the container). For around 1000 square feet we used around four gallons of a five gallon container.

Behr seems to be as much at a loss as we are about what went wrong.

The container said in big, bold letters that the contents appear milky but dry clear. So, we didn't think twice when we saw the white film. After a while it became pretty obvious that the white wasn't going away.

So is BEHR going to pay for the fix? It seems that if you followed the directions they should pay.

I'm having the same problem, sealed my patio a week ago and its still white, what a mess. I talked to Behr and they said it would be gone in 72 hours. Let me know what results you had.
