    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Kathy, thanks for your question. We don't recommend applying out Dry Plus Waterproofer over a previously painted surface, as it may not provide a waterproof finish. Instead, it's best to apply this to bare drywall. Have a great day! -Christina

      Q:Would you use this product on basement floors prior to installation of vinyl flooring?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi BobG, thank you for your question. The Dry Plus Waterproofer is designed for vertical surfaces (walls) and should not be used on floors. Also, we have not tested any of our coatings for vinyl flooring over them, and cannot recommend for this use. Have a great day! -Giovanna

          Q:Is there a Behr flat white latex paint with the same or very close color white match? I don't need this paint on the entire basement and want to match the color as close as possible for the rest of the basement.

              A:  Hi Carol Ann, thank you for your question. Yes, our DryPlus Masonry Waterproofer is designed to keep basements dry. It resists 12 psi of water pressure. We recommend applying to dry or slightly damp surfaces, and applying two coats. Good luck with your project! -Giovanna

              by|Jul 4, 2023

                A:  Yes, however the ideal would be to apply a waterproofer on the outside of the wall rather than the inside. Be sure to apply at least two coats and three would be even better, allow drying time between coats. Mike

                Q:CAN THIS BE USED OVER BEHR BASE 800
                by|Jul 30, 2021
                1 Answer
                Answer This Question

                A:  Hi FRANK, thank you for your question. The Waterproofer will work best on bare concrete walls. It can be applied on painted surfaces but you won't get the full benefits. If the Solid Stain No. 800 was applied on floors, the Waterproofer should not be used over it (only vertical surfaces). Please reach out to us directly if you have any other questions. Have a great day! -Giovanna

                    Q:Why does this gallon only cover 125 sq ft? Is it thick in consistency?
                    by|Feb 24, 2021
                    1 Answer
                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Hi SteveVA - Thanks for your question! Our Dry Plus Masonry Waterproofer has a typical, creamy paint consistency. We recommend applying a gallon for every 75-125 sq. ft. as the film thickness needs to be built up in order to properly waterproof your project. Ideally, your first coat should be 21.3 mils when wet and dry to 9.2 mils when applied at 75 sq. ft. per gallon. Your second coat should be 12.8 mils when wet and dry to 5.5 mils when applied at 125 sq. ft. Best - Sara
