Storm Cellar with flooding issues

August 16, 2016
I'm wanting to use this to help seal an old storm cellar that floods. It floods when there's 17 or 18 inches of rain as there has been in the past couple of years. It has some window issues that I am currently caulking and glazing and I see streaks down the walls where the water has come in through cracks. However, I have 3 or 4 places where there are large areas of black mold and I am currently using bleach and a mortar repair product to resolve that. (fingers crossed)

The question that I have for you is regarding an area where former owners of the house/cellar have used some type of thick paint product (probably Kilz waterproofer) to seal around the bottom of the walls near the floor. It too has some mildew. Do I paint over this? Or does it need some kind of primer? Or do I need to sand it off before applying this waterproofer.

I also saw a video online showing a waterproofer product (NOT A BEHR product--a competitor) and the walls of a basement molded under the paint. Do you find this to be an issue with Behr products at all, or could it be an issues since I currently have some mildew/mold in the cellar.

This is really becoming an ever growing expensive pain in the neck and I'm a beginner!! So any help you can give me would be appreciated

Hello Jaed,
Thanks for your questions and interest in Behr paints. None of our products are designed to seal surfaces for the purpose flood prevention. Our Waterproofer paint here can seal hydrostatic pressure that builds up in walls but not direct flow of water from, say, a torrent of rain. For that reason alone, I'd have to recommend against using Behr for this project unless you were able to stop the flooding into the cellar. Also, our products are not mold/mildew inhibitors, and we actually recommend removing all sources of mold before application. Some of our paints can help prevent the growth of mold/mildew on the top of the surface, but not blocking it when it's underneath. I can suggest checking with Home Depot to see about another brand's coating that may be suited to your specific needs. Best wishes for your project!

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Waterproof Basement Walls I have had nothing but GOOD luck using Behr products. Used the waterproofer on our basement walls and floor, with amazing results. The basement is so much brighter and fresher smelling. It has lasted 6 years and no leaks. I highly recommend Behr. June 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent performance and easy application! We purchased an older home with a leaky basement, and have tried a few different products to seal the walls. One waterproofing paint was so thick and sticky it was like painting with thick maple syrup. The second one didn't cover well and the smell was awful. I started to think we were going to have to hire a contractor if we were ever going to have a dry basement. After some serious frustration and quite a bit of money spent, we tried the Behr waterproofer. What a difference! The paint went on smoothly without any drag at all, even over some rough areas where the wall had been textured with sand. The coverage was great. It has been on the walls for a couple of months now and no water or moisture yet! Very pleased! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 19, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great paint exceeded my expections!!! My daughter purchased her first home, and the garage walls showed some mold and effervescent. We cleaned the walls, read all the reviews on several companies. I had previously used another product to prevent water from entering my home. So I was surprised at the lack of odor. We picked almond cream. It took two coats, the color was great. The coverage was great. One tip I would say is to work the roller lightly, until the paint is applied, use more pressure when the roller is emptied, working the paint into the holes. Use a full roller to go over areas not completed covered. applied with a full roller. The garage is 14 feet high, I used an extension on the roller, and never climb a ladder. Covered wall great. It has only been up for day, but it looks wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend this product. Second coat was done in half the time of the first coat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looks Great The application instructions were very good and I tried both a roller & a 4" brush to apply to my block basement walls. I found that I got better coverage filling the nooks and crannies of the porous block surface with the brush. The first coat took a little longer and required more effort than the 2nd coat. As the directions state, a 2nd coat was necessary for full coverage and good color. It also took much less effort and gave more coverage. I had some minor cracks that were filled in and visibly disappeared after the application. The odor was hardly noticeable and was completely gone the next day. I started in one corner and am working my way around the basement. The completed sections are brighter, easier to keep clean and are a major improvement in the appearance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Changed my dark moist basement into a usable space I love this product. I was hoping to clean up the basement and make it less damp but I was suprised to find that it made it dry. Although the prep time was very long and tedious, it was well worth it. My preping properly which included regrouting lots of the mortar between the bricks, it was well worth it to do it right. I now have a very usable dry basement that I don't fear to go into!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great but very thick I have used this in several areas. It worked great in an underground basement, although it took 6 coats to finally stop the water penetration. I have also used it to paint my stucco home. The material went on quite easily and with 2 coats, it looks like new several years out. The biggest challenge is that it is really thick, think frosting and you get the idea, particularly on a cold morning. Don't try to stir it to mix in the pigment, you will be all day. Every day I was planning to paint, I took it to my local home depot to shake it. Never had a problem that way. It is really hard to roll on and I couldn't imagine spraying it, even though the directions say you can. I used a brush, which took a long time, but it seems very durable so it was effort well spent. I have also used this on wood and it works but it takes several coats, since wood is porous. But once I was done, it was really water proof and looked great. Finally, the custom color selection is pretty extensive, but don't expect every possibility. Deep colors are just not possible and the finish is totally matte, but very smooth to the touch.
