I just wanted to let you know your DRYLOK® paint is an exceptional product. When it rains, I usually get water in my basement from the north wall. I don’t have a sump pump, so I am usually down there with a 10 gallon shop vac to collect all of the water.
The waterproofer was prepared according to the label directions by mixing the equivalent of 2 pints of cold water with 10 pounds of DRYLOK® powder. After mixing until smooth, the equivalent of 2 pints of cold water was added for “normal application” or 1.5 pints for “heavy application”. To distinguish between the two application conditions, a few drops of magenta colorant were added to the mixture.
Ok, we all know it’s hot out there and, in fact, most of the country is seeing record-high temps. What can you do on such hot days? The basement is probably the coolest space in the house this time of year.
With the economy being as tight as it is, if you need more space the only place to look is down. Take that dark, damp, scary basement and turn it into the space you need. Although DRYLOK® is a masonry waterproofer, it also decorates as it waterproofs. DO NOT, whatever you do, put ordinary house paint on those walls. You may not have a water or moisture problem right now, but one may arise in the future.
One of the most frustrating problems faced by homeowners is the constant battle against wet basement and garage walls. But it doesn’t have to be that way, thanks to DRYLOK® Masonry Waterproofer from United Gilsonite Laboratories. It’s time to reclaim your basement or garage, and convert the area into a laundry room, family room, bedroom, game room, or exercise room. No matter what your needs might be for additional space, converting your basement or garage into usable living space can increase your home’s value by 25% to 40%.
