Protect your home from damage with basement waterproofing
A damp, leaky basement can be a homeowner’s
worst nightmare. Active water leaks and excessive moisture in basement or foundation walls can rob a home of extra storage or living space. And, if left unchecked, more serious problems can result, including costly structural damage and high humidity levels throughout the home. That’s why it is important to take care of water problems before they start.
prepare the surface.
Before you get started,
make sure basement walls are thoroughly cleaned to get rid of dirt, grease and other contaminants. Kill any existing mold and mildew by washing with a solution of household bleach and water, consisting of no more than one cup of bleach in one gallon of water. Next, remove any
efflorescence, a powdery white deposit found on many concrete surfaces, with a concrete etching solution to ensure the waterproofing paint sticks to the basement walls. Patch any holes and cracks—especially those that show signs of active water leaks or those around windows, doors and
joints.Apply two coats of waterproofing paint.
waterproofing paints are guaranteed to stop water and offer a mold- and mildew-proof paint film guarantee. Low odor and easy to use, Watertite is available in an oil-base formula, which is great for waterproofing wet walls, or a convenient
latex formula for routine waterproofing. To apply, use a thick synthetic brush or large
nap roller to apply the first coat to a small section of the masonry. Use a brush to work the coating into the pores of the concrete to produce a continuous pinhole-free film. Apply the second coat with a brush or roller. It’s that easy.
