Wanting to completely waterproof his basement, one of our employees decided that this weekend was the time to solve any types of future problems that could potentially happen. Since this was a new basement without any previously applied coating or sealer, all that was required was that the surface of the walls were free of excess dust.
After brooming the walls, he mixed up his prime coat of PermaFlex™ with catalyst/accelerator and then added solvent to thin. A couple of ounces of black PermaFlex™ per gallon of white PermaFlex™ were added to slightly tint the prime coat a darker color to make it much easier to see where he needed to roll for his final white coat.
Andy Franklin one of our head tech guys used SANI-TRED® to waterproof the basement exterior on his new home. Sealing and keeping water out of your basement is extremely important . . . and using the right product after your basement walls have been poured is a critical step in making sure your basement stays nice and dry!

“Based on my experiences restoring fountains and creating art installations, have been a committed SaniTred evangelist for quite a while! As you know, and as a often explain, its a really fantastic product with unique durability and longevity.Ive used SaniTred to restore broken fountains and art installations, but American Aqueduct is probably my favorite project that showed off its capabilities.
Josh Owens of Owens Concrete Staining recently completed a beautiful stained concrete floor using Sani-Tred a Moisture Vapor Control Coating. Moisture Vapor Transmission is a leading cause of coating failure, but Sani-Tred can hold up to even the most extreme MVT. Josh said, “this floor had a high moisture reading and was causing the current sealed floor to fail. We decided to use Permaflex as the vapor barrier before resurfacing the floor and designing, staining, and sealing with a solvent urethane.”
Recently Superior Woodworking located in the Metro Detroit area remodeled a wet basement using Sani-Tred. The remodel was custom finished basement with 1\2 bath, wet bar, flat screen and kegerator. Water was an issue in this basement so the walls and floor had to be completely stripped of any paint or sealer. The entire basement was then sealed with a product SaniTred and finished as you see here.
Greg from Maine (http://pileofwoodmaine.blogspot.com) is building a 48′ Duck Boat, and used Sani-Tred. At this point the backbone of the Duck is largely complete. The “dead wood” is comprised of two stacked timbers of Angelique- the bottom most was a whole timber and the 2nd piece was laminated from Angelique boards I had milled from the whole timber into which I “sprang” a 3″ curve by misjudging the grain when I was trimming it up. It was a tremendous amount of work to cut the “sprung” timber into boards then laminate back into a straight whole timber but the Yankee in me couldn’t see just tossing this hugely expensive timber aside even though I reinvested a week’s work and $600 in epoxy for lamination. I did end up with a straight timber however- which I didn’t have before I sawed and laminated.
There are 10 individual keel pieces that comprise what you see here. The keel components above the dead wood were built up with laminated Doug Fir and then each piece stacked and bedded in Sanitred LRB (more on this in a minute) and then tied together with 3/4″ galvanized keel bolts at each station (2′ spacing). Then an 8″ wide grounding shoe of mild steel flat bar was lagged onto the bottom of the keel. (more…)
Found this cool project by Brooke from Austin, Texas using Sani-Tred to seal a shipping container to make a backyard swimming pool.
We have treated it, as we posted previously, like an inside out ship: rust is part of our expectation and freaking out about a few spots is not our game. we have been using (periodically) a product called water weld made by jb weld to cover small rust spots, and it is a white two-part paste epoxy that cures in about 10 minutes, even immersed in water. and about every 2-3 years we have repainted the pool with olympic’s two-part pool epoxy called zeron. I built it originally with a 1 hp pump, a zeobrite sand filter, and a natural gas heater. hindsight being 20/20, we should have skipped the heater. while the pool is mostly in-ground, it isn’t totally underground, and instead of a wonderfully insulative surrounding of earth and 18 inches of concrete, we have steel. It’s like literally heating the outdoors… so we have never used the heater.
From a pool design nerd perspective, I have really wrestled with how to get the plumbing to better mimic a normal in-ground pool. we started out with a few assumptions: a pool made of a container could move a little bit relative to the earth around it when it wasn’t filled with water, and the plumbing might move or might break.

Recently we discovered this Saltwater Aquarium Project that was sealed using Sani-Tred by Jarred Sadowski. He said, “I decided to start this project partly because it was always a curiosity of mine on how reef tanks were built. I always loved watching salt water fish when visiting the aquarium.”

Recently Dennis Olsen a commercial roofing contractor for 23 years, got presented a unique opportunity by one of his customers.
One of Virginia’s premier 4-season resorts is building a very large deck out the side of the main ski lodge. However, there was a building with an “A” frame roof right in the path. Several huge concerns came up… What type of flat roof to put up there and how to redo or recoat the roof when it becomes necessary because there will only be 7″ of clearance once the deck is built. Dennis suggested 3/4″ T&G boards be installed with a slight slope off the back.
