Using a large paintbrush, apply the sealer in corners between the walls and floor where you will not likely be able to apply it with a roller. Using a lint-free roller, apply the sealer to the entire surface. Continue applying and spreading the sealer until you create a *** and glistening appearance. Let the sealer dry completely.

The Permanent Concrete Sealer – RadonSeal® is not “your ******’s” waterproofing paint or sealer. RadonSeal differs from paints and membrane coatings by penetrating deep inside concrete (up to 4″), chemically reacting with lime and alkalis, expanding inside microscopic pores, and curing as a **** mineral. Once cured, RadonSeal will seal your concrete internally against the transmission of water seepage, water vapor and strong enough to seal against harmful radon gas.

Try a ****** drain (or perimeter drain) for serious water issues. A ****** drain consists of a continuous system of piping, running beneath the floor of the basement and along the entire perimeter of the basement. Installing a ****** drain is similar to installing a sump, but requires cutting and removing an approximately 12″ wide ***** of basement floor along the entire perimeter of the basement, digging a 12″ deep trench, filling it with coarse gravel surrounding the drain pipe, then re-pouring a concrete floor to cover it all up. A ****** drain will always include a sump and pump for removing any water which gets into the drain system.

Tips Before beginning a serious basement remodeling project, observe your basement carefully during heavy rainstorms. If you can last a year of weather without any water leaks, you’re probably going to be OK in the future (so long as you keep those gutters clean and take care of your foundation!). Note that salt & lime deposits form on concrete blocks as water leaks through them (white staining). This MUST be completely removed before any blocker is used. This is the most common reason why the sealing fails. This is generally done by dousing the wall with muriatic acid and scrubbing. Follow this by rinsing the area very liberally with a water hose, then vacuum it off the floor. This will normally take several applications. You will see the muriatic acid react with the deposits on the wall. When installing a sump pump, be sure to refer to local plumbing codes. Most installations will require a one-way valve to prevent water from coming into the sump through the outlet. Battery backup sump pumps are available. Search for “basement watchdog.” These are great for sumps that have a steady flow of water into them since you’ll know you have a backup if/when the power goes out or the main pump breaks. The construction of a *** house is the time to properly seal the house for life. The *** standby of plastic wrap and Styrofoam sheeting to protect does ****. But it is almost always destroyed during the back-filling of the foundation, causing it to leak. This way of sealing NO LONGER meets the international building code, along with many state, country, or city building codes. The makers of DRYLOK suggest coating the exterior of the foundation with DRYLOK Masonry Waterproofer. Remember the waterproofer is only as good and as sound as the surface. Protect the surface with a wrap before backfilling to protect from rocks and equipment. Regardless of what type of water protection you try to use, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. Common misapplications of Xypex come from not following the directions, or more specifically, contractors being too cheap to do the *** correctly. Xypex is at least a two stage system, with the second applications using a thinner, cheaper coating of different composition. Many contractors are trying to offset the cost of Xypex VS Drylok by only applying the FINISHING coats. When cutting into concrete, be sure to tape plastic drop cloths from ceiling to floor to enclose the affected area. When you apply Drylok to an interior block wall expansion joint. The block is hollow. The Drylok will stop the seepage temporary. The block will fill up with water causing bowing walls, mortem separation and wall bowing. Don’t try and use these inferior products to seal the expansion joint. It will cost you a boat load of ***** later , when your foundation starts to cave. This is called a negative pressure. Dig up the outside and apply a positive pressure membrane to stop hydrostatic pressure.
