I have a concrete patio slab, if I apply this can I paint over it?
Asked by: rpinch
Possibly, but you'd need to make sure the paint would adhere to the waterproofing, so you would probably need to prime it first. Alternatively, if you're looking to ensure your patio is waterproof, you could paint first, then apply the sealer.

I mixed the product with water and a used a roller to apply. The proof will be in the winter and how it really works. I was pleased with the ease of application and it did dry clear. I used that product from the garage opening to the middle of the driveway. I used Ghostshield 4500 the for the apron area as that area get the salt from the street. Then I used Ghostshield 9500 for the rest of the driveway that one altered the color of my driveway just a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect product for the application Problem to be solved: water penetration into brick chimney and damaging drywall ceiling below the roof. Previously repaired the cement cap on the chimney, placed caps over the flue pipes, reflashed the chimney. Waterproofing the masonry was all that remained to be done. The Ghostshield was applied with a brush. The first coat was absorbed almost immediately. Yje second coat was absorbed, but much more slowly, indicating that the material was penetrating the masonry as described. Upon completion, the chimney looks exactly as before.
