OUR FOUR STEP PROCESS

CHOOSE THE RIGHT FINISH
PREPARE THE SURFACE
Surface preparation is the most critical part of any basement & foundation waterproofing project. For the best results, follow all surface preparation directions carefully.
For basement or foundation waterproofing, DampLock Masonry Waterproofing Paint is guaranteed to stop water. Recommended for above or below grade waterproofing, Damplock can withstand up to 15 psi of hydrostatic pressure and comes with a 15-year guarantee.
For basement floors, Epoxy-Seal Concrete & Garage Floor Paint can be tinted to 36 beautiful colors or comes premixed in light or dark gray. It’s a great choice when your basement floor needs a little enhancement without spending a lot of cash.

APPLY YOUR COATING
Once you’ve measured, prepared the surface and picked out your coating, application will seem like the easiest part. Read the application instructions carefully. Product data sheets are available with all the information you need to get started.

PROTECT YOUR SURFACE
Your basement & foundation waterproofing project is not complete until it is sealed. A protective sealer is recommended over most concrete floor paints. SEAL-KRETE Clear-Seal is a premium sealer that penetrates deeply to seal and protect painted concrete.
