Years ago, I used this product for a second story walk-out deck. It was installed directly onto plywood with no primer or conditioner. It worked fine for many years, and was no problem at all. People walked on it with shoes on, and there was some deck furniture on it as well. Once it was installed, and the sun hit it. it was impossible to get off.

Years ago, I used this product for a second story walk-out deck. It was installed directly onto plywood with no primer or conditioner. It worked fine for many years, and was no problem at all. People walked on it with shoes on, and there was some deck furniture on it as well. Once it was installed, and the sun hit it. it was impossible to get off. I often thought that it might be nicer to coat it with a white mobile home roof coating, but never bothered to do it. I never had any holes, but you could simply install a patch over any tears. Once this is adhered to the plywood it is like an armor coating. After 10 - 12 years I extended the upstairs out over the deck area, enclosing it. I am now purchasing it to coat a vertical surface of exterior wall (plywood and foam form) that is in accessible when my patio deck is in place against the house. Read Less

Yes. I used to be in the highway and bridge construction business and this product met NYSDOT specifications. On some types of bridge decks, the concrete sub-slab was poured first, then this product was put down, and then regular asphalt paving was placed right over the top of it. Of course, this involved pavers and rollers and trucks loaded with asphalt driving right on the membrane. Usually, 3" of Read More

Of course, this involved pavers and rollers and trucks loaded with asphalt driving right on the membrane. Usually, 3" of blacktop was placed over this, and then opened to traffic. I'm very confident that It would work fine for your application. You need a clean, dry surface for adhesion, and do not attempt below 50 degrees or so. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes, it is designed for use on elevated concrete decks. The substrate should be slightly pitched away from the intersecting wall(s) and a drainage composite should be placed over the waterproofing membrane. The deck-wall intersection is a critical detail, and care should be taken in waterproofing this area. Installation Details can be found next to the product description on the HomeDepot.com website.

Answer: 
I believe that it could be, once the wall was washed to remove any flaking and then dried. Of course, it is not going to be very attractive, but I assume that you are trying to solve some other problem and not concerned about cosmetics. The warmer the surface, the better luck you will have getting it to adhere.

Answer: 
This product acts like rubber. Heck it may be some type of rubber. I just use because it is sold with ICF walls and to run down on the footing.
But, to answer your question, yes and know. The product seems to cover difference surface levels if the angle of change is less than about a 45 degree angle. If the taper of angle changes is more than a 45 degree, the material will pull away from the surface Read More
This product acts like rubber. Heck it may be some type of rubber. I just use because it is sold with ICF walls and to run down on the footing.
But, to answer your question, yes and know. The product seems to cover difference surface levels if the angle of change is less than about a 45 degree angle. If the taper of angle changes is more than a 45 degree, the material will pull away from the surface when the temperature changes. Also if applied when it is too hot, (70-80+) the membrane will mold pretty well, but as it shrinks, it will pull away when the temperature . Note that the subterranean temp will be between 50 and 58 degrees according to how far the structure is from the equator.
It is good to know that if you use the correct overlap, the product as a whole unit should be pretty water resistant, even if parts don't remain stuck to the surface. The edges of the membrane really adheres to itself very well. But when it pulls away from steep angle changes or irregular shapes, the space will become a void and a great place for moisture pockets.
I personally feel the best choice would be to use a parge or masonry mixture to "feather" the wall more even and permit it to dry a couple days before using this membrane. You can also use a narrow rubber roller to get the best adhesion to the wall. Good luck Read Less

I think it can be installed over tar. I installed it on a wall painted with dryloc sealing paint. The film has a very sticky adhesive already applied.

Bituthene System 4000 200 sq. ft. Waterproof Membrane and Conditioner is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, with important detail left out of instructions. Caution: Not enough instructions are supplied with this product. Do not let this product get wet, or damp before peeling and installing it. Nowhere on the box does it say this, but if you let the paper backing (that peels off before installation) get wet, the product looses all sticky qualities, and becomes nearly useless. When new, used out of the box, it is a really great product (when dry). *A 3 inch overlap is required. *Make sure the surface being covered, is dust free, and dry. *Be careful to get inner corners tucked in before allowing the sticky side of the membrane to touch the surface being covered. It is really tacky and difficult to move after it gets stuck. *When this material is applied @ 80+ degrees, then it cools, it will shrink a small amount. The inner corners will pull away from the surface, leaving voids in the corners. *When the sticky back is applied to the top of the membrane, there is no removing, or re-aligning, the product will not move. That characteristic of super stickiness, is what makes this a good waterproofing material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from * This membrane is nicer to work with than the Mel-roll. It is more elastic. When you install it, make sure you have at least one person to help peel the paper backing and apply the membrane to a foundation (three people are preferable). It is technically impossible to apply it in one person (it will start to adhere to itself and you are going to waste a good portion of the membrane). Don't keep it on the wall unsecured for a prolonged time; it will come off eventually if not back-filled or supported with insulation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Do Your Homework. It was a great product, but I was upset when I found it at a place Called Allied Building Products for half the price. other than that it was a great product...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good choice for sealing outer basement wall Product was as advertised. Has very sticky adhesive already applied, not sure how much the spray on solution is needed. Film seems pretty puncture resistant, and soft enough to self repair where needed. Only time will tell how durable. I used dryloc hydraulic cement and sealing paint over the whole area, and applied the film only in case the foundation cracked further. Gives me peace of mind that i wont have to dig again. Product was pricey, but after digging an 8 foot hole by hand, it seems well worth not having to go through that agian.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the time or money. Poorly manufactured I had purchased this product to waterproof my mother's basement. The shipping was very fast. I had the basement dug cleaned prepped and primed. The paper backing was hard to remove due to the small tears. The product itself was 20% dry and would not stick to anything. The parts that were sticky, would stick to me and to itself NOT the block. It boils down to; I bought six rolls of thick rubber and only 1 1/2 rolls made it on the wall. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY! If you do buy this and have a problem, GRACE will send out a rep and could take 10-14 days. While you wait, the basement can not be backfilled for that time. I would buy this for an extra-large fly-paper, or maybe a slip-n-slide for the kids, or as I did......fill, because it fell off the wall when I backfilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has already cut down on the dampness tough product to work with in tight quarters. If product folds back on itself it is impossible to separate and must be discarded. Has stopped all leaks and greatly reduced the dampness seeping into my basement
Date published: 2011-11-29
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sticky Used it to seal sill plate and band joists around slab where grade could not be easily lowered. Primered clean concrete and wood, let it dry, and this stuff stuck very well to it. Don't let it touch itself or you'll never get it off. It's done easily by 2 people, but not easy to do by one. Someone needs to hold it into position while someone peels the backing. Took one point off for value, because it's expensive and only possible to buy a huge roll, but it seems like you could use it for sealing all manner of stuff. Maybe I'll build a boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product Yes you need 2 people to install this product properly that's for sure but if done right it is great... 1st clean the area completely with a wire brush and a scraper, then you must apply the primer which will help it stick (primer 777) recommended. * cut the membrane into manageable lengths 4 feet works great. these couple of steps should help..
