No paint is going to stop water seepage. I would suggest using hydraulic cement to repair cracks, let it dry completely and then use a waterproofing paint.

Depending on the amount of moisture you get or where it comes in, you might have to do more often.

Answer: 
Hello Nick,
Our Basement and Masonry Waterproofer actually does not have the benefit of sealing hairline cracks. We’d first recommend fixing the hairline cracks and then our product can be applied.

I was thinking of using Kilz Oil Based Primer and Sealer because it has an Odor Blocking trait. Does this block odor also?

Answer: 
Although this is not specifically an odor blocker, I did notice an improvement in the basement air after using it. A very subjective of a thing but worth mentioning.

Hello BigBern,
Great question. Our Basement and Masonry Waterproofer does not have the benefit of sealing odors. We'd suggest using a primer with that benefit.

Can this product be colored before use? For example, paining over stucco. If not, is there a clear option?

Will this work for a repaired basement with steel wall braces?

My basement was recently repaired and wall reinforcement braces made of steel were installed. The block walls already have a coat of old waterproofing paint applied to some areas. I don't have any issues with water intrusion anymore and don't expect to in the future but I want to use a good paint that will adhere to the previously painted block, new unpainted block, and the primered steel reinforcement beams. Will this paint work for me?

Hello Dave,
We appreciate your question. Yes, while this paint is not designed for steel, we've found that it can be applied to smaller areas of metal within the project area of mostly concrete or masonry. Please be sure to follow all label instructions for best results. Well wishes for your project!

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tough paint I didn't do a whole lot of surface prep for a clean are block basement wall. Scraped it with a stiff brush and put on 1 thick layer with with a cheap brush with a few touch ups afterward. Some of the block was very slightly damp from condensation and it was no problem to paint over it. I just put a fan on it and it dried in no time. It was easy to apply, went on easily but not too drippy either. After a week or so I tested the adhesion with a wire brush and it took a lot of hard scraping to get through the layer of paint. It cleans up and touches up easily. There was a very slight ammonia smell but I had no problem painting indoors for hours with this paint. Its great if you can ventilate the area but it does not smell strong. July 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works to waterproof basement walls IF you follow directions Surface must be clean and dry - any moisture or efflorescence and it won't adhere, no paint will. You also need to solve leak source - paint won't stop a flood. I used it on a leaky basement laundry room. 1st redirected downspouts and graded soil away from house. Then cleaned interior bsmt walls with UGL etch. Spent 2 weeks with dehumidifier drying out walls to bone dry. Skimmed with Sacrete surface bonding cement and let dry completely (another 2 weeks). Two coats of Behr waterproofer and basement has been dry for a year - had been damp for 20! Take your time, follow instructions, and this is a great deal. BUT you need to solve your leak source whether drainage/grading or water supply/downspout. Wife wanted it tinted slate blue (over my objections) and must admit she was right, color looks good. Also have used this under foam board insulation when finishing basements. June 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by better then I expected paint went on easy, not much of a smell, did not have yellow spots coming through like all other paints I used in the bastment. August 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Appearance and Adherence Applied to unpainted dark gray cinder block walls to brighten appearance of basement After a month, it looks fine. Did not use primer. Brushed on heavy first coat to fill in pores; this was essential to obtaining good coverage in two coats. Applies smoothly, but allow plenty of time--especially for first coat. Paint is very thick and difficult to stir. I bought a gallon at a time, so HD could put paint in shaker shortly before application. Basement is dry, so cannot judge water blocking ability. No bad smell. Good appearance and adherence. HD Memorial week rebate of ten dollars per gallon was a nice added incentive. I'm a happy customer. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really satisfied, exceeded my expectations My Portland basement had several moisture intrusion points, no water necessarily, but definitely the cement would get wet. I applied the product during fall and now that is February I haven't seen any moisture problems at all, my basement is still dry and the smell has improved a big deal. Pretty thick to apply. The most troublesome moisture point shows a yellowish stain, but that happened within hours of application, the cement was permanently moist; after a few months now, the stain hasn't increased. I would have tinted the color if I would have known that it was bright white, but I was determined to finish the project so I went ahead with white. Very satisfied. February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product; Lousy Way to Buy While the product is excellent, the fact that it is no longer carried in the stores (without any notice) and must be ordered on-line is really not acceptable to me. It was a big hassle to even pick up the order. July 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent paint The paint covered very well and dried evenly. Applied two coats as recommended and was very impressed with the finish. Thanks to the store clerk who recommended this new product. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Paint. Need to protect our retaining wall & to make it look nice. We choose this product by the good reviews given on this site. Is a thick paint paint so take your time make sure not to leave any small holes un fill. June 7, 2016
