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.

Can this product be used to seal an interior block basement wall?

Asked by: JOHN
GhostShield recommended that I first prime my cinder block walls with Sil-Tek 3500 before applying the 8500.

We have a Bedford stone chimney. Has been sealed in the past but is leaking because of many days of heavy rains. Will this work to seal the Bedford stone?
Asked by: Ger
We have a brick chimney. It leaked after a major storm and many days of constant rain. I used 2 coats of this to seal the grout and the brick itself, but paid particular attention to the grout. We haven't had leaks since, and have had a couple of blowing rains.

Noticeable difference between treated and untreated brick. Applied to chimney to prevent moisture penetration resulting in soot odor in the house. Odor has decreased significantly. I am very please with the product and plan to apply it to the rest of the house next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but worth it I purchased and used 2 gallons to seal a new versa block patio wall -3 sides.- approximately 250 sq. ft. front and a little less on the backside - applied where not back filled yet. The product went on easily with an electric paint sprayer -2 coats wet to wet as instructed. I waited until the block was dry -3 days following a hard rain- before applying. Following application the results were remarkable. Previously saturated block was completely dry. Very impressive! One thing to note -I picked up the second gallon at home depot- when I opened it a few days later to apply there was only a half gallon in the bottle -the handle had a slight crack allowing leakage in shipment without being obvious. Home Depot replaced the bottle with no problem but would not give me the 1/2 gallon remaining to coat the front of my wall before any rain-(I knew Hazmat would dispose of this anyways) so this set me back another week since it rained 2 days later. When it arrived, I had HD open the replacement gallon before accepting it. I would highly recommend this product. Great Results.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised I was skeptical at first, couldnt see how such a product could water proof concrete and be applied so easily. I power washed our 10 year old driveway, let it dry for a few days then applied this product using a pump sprayer in the early morning so that it didnt instantly evaporate giving it a chance to penetrate the concrete. Dont be fooled, pictures of results are attached. Driveway looks great, water just beads, one picture compares my sidewalk to my neighbors un treated driveway.

We recently purchased our first new home and wanted to make sure we sealed the driveway, small walkway and stairs leading into our house at our builders suggestion. He recommended a couple of options and this was one of them. We are not the handiest people out there but this was one of the easier projects we did. The sealer was concentrated, we mixed it with 4 gallons of water and opted to roll it onto our concrete as opposed to spraying it as also suggested. We worked in small areas sealing each section twice before doing the next section. The sealer dried completely invisible however anytime it got wet with snow and it melted, throughout the winter you could clearly see that something was there protecting the concrete. Great product, highly recommend it.
