Waterproofing Basement Walls

Finding a quality basement wall sealant isn’t easy. It should be, but it’s not. Waterproofing your basement is an essential part of keeping your home dry and free of water-related damage. The most important part of waterproofing your basement is waterproofing the walls. Basement walls are under constant pressure from outside water due to its placement underground. This hydrostatic pressure pushes up against your basement and, if not protected, water will make its way through your concrete’s pores and into your basement.

Water plays havoc with your basement, damages whatever you have down there and fosters mold and mildew growth. Altogether, allowing water into your basement is a bad idea you should certainly avoid at all costs. Some contractors use exterior waterproofing barriers. These barriers are either applied during construction of the home or later by excavating the area around your home. These barriers work in the short term, but a single tear and the entire membrane is compromised. Any water that gets into your basement can lead to water damage, so it’s best to use a basement wall sealant.

 The SANI-TRED® Solution

For waterproofing basement walls, it’s best to choose a waterproof coating that can do the job right the first time. Unlike exterior waterproofing barriers, SANI-TRED’s water sealant for walls is an interior rubber coating system that primes, repairs, patches, and seals your concrete basement walls. SANI-TRED® uses PermaFlex™ rubber floor paint, LRB (Liquid Rubber Base), and TAV (Thickening Activator) to protect and waterproof your basement throughout. PermaFlex™ adheres to your basement walls, penetrating deep into the concrete’s pores then hardens (while maintaining 590% elongation) to seal the pores. A LRB/TAV mixture is then used to patch and profile any existing joints, cracks, holes, or imperfections. This mixture adheres to the priming PermaFlex™ layer. The system is completed with another coating of PermaFlex™, which adheres to the previous LRB/TAV and prime coat of PermaFlex™ to create a seamless waterproof barrier that protects your basement completely and permanently. If you want to waterproof your basement walls and have the peace of mind knowing it’s safe from future water damage, look no further than SANI-TRED waterproofing products. Protect your basement and home with SANI-TRED®.
