Waterproofing for the Fall Nor’easters
There are many sealers that could do the job, but one beats them all!
Concrete panels can be either coated with a high solids paint like SW loxon XP, an elastomeric coating like SW shur-lastic, or a good hydro phobic paint like STO lotusan. Another option is the Floor Skinz Clear Hydro phobic sealer, which is a good hydro phobic clear sealer if the wall needs to remain natural looking. There are many masonry sealers on the market, but some leave a sheen on the surface and some are completely invisible when they are dry. Most of the hydrophobic sealers just slightly reduce the penetration, but the better sealer, which will stop penetration, has a sheen. This means that it will make the surface somewhat shiny. At DJ’s Painting, we use Floor Skinz Clear Hydrophobic sealer, which is the best clear hydrophobic sealer on the market. It makes any surface 100% completely hydrophobic, meaning the water literally jumps off the surface. Therefore, it never allows the masonry area, where it was applied, to get wet.
