Howdy there!

My wife and I recently purchased the condo that we had been renting for the past 8 years. Before we get a dog, we want to rip up the carpet and stain the concrete (easier to clean up pee).

I have researched the process form various sources and know that we want a water based stain. The biggest question is to what brand. I have not heard or read a single positive thing about Behr stains (or paints); so much so that I want to avoid them like the plague.

Do you all have any brands that you recommend?

I'm going to ask a few questions before someone jumps in. I don't know much about staining but...
You don't say what floor, basement etc. Is it concrete or gypecrete? has moisture tests been done? Moisture can be a big issue.

It is concrete. We live in a one level condo, and we have carpet on the slab. We had moisture tests taken during inspection as well as checked the foundation.
