How well does this reduce floor dampness from excessive rain? Would this be more appropriate than just a sealant?

I’m trying to find the right product to reduce dampness in unfinished basement, how does this compare to something like Dry Bones that is just a sealant and not a densifier? Would this provide the same level of water sealing while also improving an old concrete floor?

1 gal. Concentrated Sodium Silicate Concrete Sealer, Hardener and Densifier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product works to seal out moisture from penetrating through by actually penetrating into the ... The product works to seal out moisture from penetrating through by actually penetrating into the concrete in depth and binding with it chemically to seal the concrete within itself, not just on the surface like a paint. That means it will not blister, peel, chip, scrape, flake or wear off like a paint when moisture migrates in behind it. It doesn't affect surface paintability if that is what you want to do later. It also physically makes the concrete physically harder which is excellent for concrete garage and basement floors or any other traffic stress as well!

Real test will come later this spring when I get groundwater in my basement but not thrilled with it so far. I cleaned (swept, washed, vacuumed and swept floor again) but still got an uneven coating. Used both a sprayer and roller but still got some chalking. Maybe my prep or my basement floor but disappointed in coverage. If no water this spring than I'll change my mind.

While we are doing everything the EPA suggests for mitigation, we're also adding Foundation Armor as an additional element in our approach, using it to limit the passage of vapor and gasses through both walls and floor. The cost is very reasonable and the application couldn't be easier. In the end, we won't be able to pin-point how much of the reduction of radon was due to the Foundation Armor, but we will most certainly know that we did everything possible to make our home a healthy place to live.

It had a lot of concrete dust that kept coming up no matter how many times we mopped. Once we have applied two coats of Armor 2000 on the floor, there is no longer any concrete dust. It is very easy to apply. We first damped mopped the floor and then mixed according to the directions. We did not use a sprayer we just mopped it onto the floor. We let it dry over night and then added a second coat in the morning. Our basement is approximately 2800 Sq ft. and we use approximately 2 1/2 gals. (That is with applying 2 coats). We are planning on doing our garage floor in the spring. This stuff works great. I highly recommend this product.

Over the years I've had to pressure wash all my cement (2400 sqft) twice a year to rid the mold and mildew. This year I treated all the cement with Foundation Armor's S2000 and after a few months I can see I'm glad I did. The cement dries faster and still looks like the day I pressure cleaned it. S2000 will save me a few days a year of hard labor. Money well spent!

I purchased S2000 densifier to seal the pores in the concrete basement floor of my 110 year old home. We do not have active leaks, but have a general water vapor leaching issue coming up through the floor. The product was easy to apply - a little goes a very long way. I applied with a one gallon garden sprayer and evened out the application with a cloth mop. The densifier dried with a slight white haze in some spots, likely do to my imprecise application, but we plan to cover the floor so this is not a problem for us. I am sure with more precise application, the haze could be avoided. I will not know for some time if the product solved all of our water problems, but I have not seen signs of moisture in the month since application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy The product is very easy to apply - I used my 1-gallon garden sprayer. I diluted it as per the instructions and sprayed it to get a nice even coat. Be sure that the entire surface is completely dry - I made the mistake of applying over a small portion that had some residual moisture, it looks cloudy. Also be sure to let it fully dry - I washed my car about an hour afterward - it washed away a portion of the coating and that part looks cloudy as well. But the portion that remained dry looks great.

Poured in 1972 the surface had become badly spalled with some top cracking where the cars sit and drip road salt. I chipped out bad concrete and repaired bad spots with high early bag mix concrete and latex forifier. Diamond ground entire surface to get rid of surface contamination and to promote adhesion. Put topping concrete fortified with latex bonding agent over entire garage floor, minimum of 1" thick. To prevent salt water penetration I wanted to use a Sodium Silicate Sealer. (Sodium Silicate breaths while preventing water penetration) Home Depot had Foundation Armor sealer in 1 gal jugs. I diluted the sealer per directions and applied 3 coats with garden sprayer. I was very surprised the the amount absorbed into the concrete. With brick, a water based Silicate sealer will bead water with 1 coat. I had to order a second gallon. The material is drop shipped from Foundation Armor, Ships Quickly, and Is very well packed. I'll know next spring exactly how well my repair worked. I plan to recoat in 5 years. To prevent repeat of the original damage. I did talk with Foundation Armor Tech Support and the experience was positive.

I used foundation armor to seal my basement walls and floor before finishing. I was unsure of the correct product so I chatted with Foundation Armor and they helped me select the correct product for my situation. When I compared the cost of s2000 with other brands it was apparent that this is a cost effective solution. Application was easy with a garden sprayer. In the future I will look for other Foundation Armor Products.

I used a garden pump sprayer and as the block was very porous, I made sure the block was wet but didn't run. I still got over 400sq ft. of coverage per mixed bottle applying it that way. Its been on for over three weeks and this past weekend, the Pittsburgh area just had three days of heavy rain. I can't be happier with the difference in how much dryer the walls stayed. I've painted one of the four walls with Drylok Extreme because I wanted to cover over the years of discoloration due to the walls getting damp. After this weekend I feel confident my damp wall problems are fixed and I can paint the rest of the walls. Getting all the Efflorescence off the walls was the hardest part. White Vinegar, multiple etching products, wire brushes and a week and a half of evenings.

The main material had settled out of the liquid onto the bottom of the container. The container had a hard white substance that had settled onto the bottom and it would not dissolve back into the liquid no matter how much it was stirred or shaken. I emailed Foundation Armor's website to ask them about this. It has been nearly 3 weeks and I have not gotten a response from the company. I will no longer buy this product or any other product from Foundation Armor.

I'm happy I went this route rather than using another product.
