The Drylock was easy to use and went on smooth. I would definitely use Latex, I tried the oil based version and it made the whole house smell for a week. Buy a pretty stiff brush to get in all the nooks of the cement block and do not expect to keep them. I thoroughly rinsed them and a week later they were stiff as a brick. Overall the project was a success and the product works great! Make sure to get the can Shook because it is too trick to stir!

I used this product on block walls that would get damp inside my home when it rained. No visible water,just dampness. it was applied when the walls were dry. No paint or coatings had previously been applied and ther are no cracks or damage to the walls. After a few rains, the Drylock lost it adhesion,peeled, and fell off the walls.I could take it off the walls with my finger. I am amazed this product is still around, do not purchase it. . .

Stinks to heck,
extremely thick to apply,
doesn't bond if your have serious enough water pressure,
and now I have mold growing on my walls.
It's a terrible product and I've found out now that locking water in my walls is actually softening the concrete blocks.

5 gallons of this product barely covered one coat on 275 square feet, the company stated that it only covers one coat per 75 square foot per gallon, note the coverage states COVERAGE: Apply 2 coats at a rate of 75 to 100 Sq Ft per gallon. To which Joe from the company informed me that it only stands behind the product if I put two coats on that's why it states that!!! The company did nothing for me other then to tell me how many more gallons I need to apply two coats!!!! I don't recommend this product unless you want to spend tons and tons of money!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by crackedwall2222 didn't work
i performed a repair to my basement wall that had a crack from the floor to the top of the wall,after digging to the bottom of the wall i repaired the crack and coated the outside and inside of the wall.after a few months i started getting water intrusion again and had to dig to the footing again,i found no damage to the repair that was made so i concluded that the sealer was failing,i stripped it off the wall with a hand grinder with a wirewheel attachment and used roofing tar insted and i haven't had a leak since.also the low oder statement is false.i had a strong chemical smell in my home for 3 days after painting the inside wall with the drylock

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lizette It is the best purchase ever made!
I rent a room in a water damage basement. black mildew all over the place. Had no other place to go, I was homeless and refused to go to a shelter. The man who gave me room, painted it the best he could. So I thought. Three months of living there, I noticed mildew on my suitcase and leather items. The new sheet rock he replaced was already being damaged by the dampness and the outside rain. He stated he would have to replace the sheet rock, but never did. I told him that if he can't do it then I will. So washed the mildew areas with water and chlorine mix and waited for it to dry. The next day he came in with a can of Dryloc waterproofing paint. I have been here now for almost a year, and no MILDEW and no dampness. Oh..forgot to tell you I am a female. Anyone can do it.
So I thought I thank you all for an awesome product, and I highly recommend it!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SuperSam This paint stops water!
I have a 170 year old house in northern New England that for the past 10 years has had anywhere from a half an inch to 4 inches of water in the basement every spring, that is until recently. Two years ago I painted the brick wall in the back and all of the floors and even the stone walls of my basement with Dryloc and this spring the basement was finally dry. Maybe I was just lucky but I put it on concrete and brick that was quite damp (although clean) and have had zero issues with any pealing or bubbling of any kind. Have the paint associate mix it for you as its been on the shelf and is very think so its hard to get it mixed well at home. Great product that certainly worked for me!
