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.

I have a 20 year old EXTERIOR block retainer wall which has stucco on it. Stucco was also
painted with UGL dylock then painted with a acrylic paint over drylok. Some of
the stucco is following off due to efflorecense and also has hairline cracks which is caused by movement. of wall. When the stucco fell off there remained a white powder. How would you fix my
issues(stucco falling off in areas because of efflorecense & hairline crack in
stucco before using Basement and Masonary Waterproofer ? Also, Could I use this
Basement and Masonry Waterproofer over the stucco already painted with UGL

Yes, the Basement & Masonry Waterproofer can be applied to stucco that was previously painted with acrylic paint, however this paint provides the best results when applied to bare surfaces.

Hi cat,
Yes, the Basement & Masonry Waterproofer can be applied to stucco that was previously painted with acrylic paint, however this paint provides the best results when applied to bare surfaces. You also want to make sure to apply this product to a surface that's in good condition. It’s best to reach out to a Home Depot associate on how to fix the actual surface. Once the surface has been fixed, we recommend cleaning it to remove the white powder and efflorescence. This can be done with a cleaner/etcher product. If you have any uncoated, patched, or chalky areas, we recommend priming them with something like our Premium Plus Interior/Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer which can be viewed here: http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-Plus-1-gal-Multi-Surface-Interior-Exterior-Primer-and-Sealer-43601/100205766.

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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality product This product was easy to apply and covered well. Looks great! June 18, 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
