Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SeniorAdvice DryLok Paint, Good
I have used DryLok paint for many years now. My basement has a two walls that get a little seepage. Unfortunately, this paint lasts...on my walls anyway....about 3 years, and then I have to do it over. So, I do scrape and paint over any seepage areas, sometimes adding a little hydraulic cement first. As far as looks, after painting, it looks very neat and clean. As far as keeping the walls 100% dry, I think it all depends on the amount of moisture you're dealing with and how much work you're willing to put into it every few years.
The odor is noticeable when painting so if you are sensitive, I suggest putting on a big floor fan while painting, which is what I do. It not only helps keeps air flowing and odor down to a minimum, it dries the paint quickly.
I gave the paint a "Good" rating only because it's not perfect, it doesn't keep moisture out "forever", it does have an odor, it is thick and takes some work and elbow grease to put on walls, but paint tools do clean up easily with soap and water. I suggest painting in the warm weather, you can wash all paint brushes and rollers outside with garden hose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joeman best product for price
i first used a hydraulic cement to stop any seepage into the foundation. and then applied the product. it has worked wonders for me. but i consider it a moisture proofing rather than a water proofing.
I also spray foamed the box sills above the foundation which only help make my basement as nice and dry as upper level.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by headquarters Leaked like a sieve on concrete garage walls that are barely underground during spring meltdown of just a little snow
Leaked horribly despite proper prep and application during the spring meltdown. Wasn't much snow and walls barely underground. Customer Service is very hard to get a hold of and unprofessional demeanors. Not impressed with product or company or customer service. Don't buy. Doesn't work at all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Excellent product
When removing paneling from a finished basement of a home we purchased in 2012, we discovered water infiltration sufficient enough to rot framing attached to the block wall. We removed the framing and applied two coats of Drylok Extreme. We left the wall unfinished for two years to make sure the dampness did not return. The basement has been bone dry since application – unbelievable product! We would definitely use this product again – very satisfied customers.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kingsmen Stay away if you are chemically sensitive. DO NOT USEOVER EXISTING PAINT!
We purchased Dry Lock Extreem 2.5 months ago. The warning label on the can is not very large and should be a different color of text. You are not suppose to use this product over existing paint. We used it over the top of 25 year old standard DryLock paint. Big Mistake.
It has been 2.5 months and my wife is being driven crazy by the odor. When we called to get an answer we were never called back. We have to leave the basement windows open during the day. Winter is almost here now and we don't know what to do. The smell is all through the house. We tried sealing the odor in with a coat of latex paint. That did not help.
If your going to use this stuff, make sure you can ventilate your basement well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bossman it's okay not great
i used it 2 years ago on moisture wall, but recently noticed some mold spots on the dry wall decided to take the walls off a gain come to find out the paint was peeling and efflorescence was taking over, this will fix the problem temporary if you have a water problem fix it from outside the foundation other wise the problem will reappear, in my case i can't fix it from outside since im blocked by anther building so i can't get to my foundation

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Fixed leaking concrete fountain
My wife's concrete decorative fountain in the front yard started leaking water. We had to fill it back up every 2 days. I went to Home Depot and bought a quart of this product. Painted the whole inside of the fountain. Waited 24 hours and filled it with water. No more leaks. The fountain holds water with zero leaks. It's been 3 months and it still works perfect. I'm happy cause the wife is happy! Would definitely recommend
