Commercial Grade Water Repellent
A good water repellent or brick sealer will protect and extend the life of brick and masonry. This includes protection from salt as well as dirt and stains. A chimney leak is a common entry piont for water to seep into brick, mortar and stone causes varying issues from efflorescence and mineral staining to cracking and spalling due to freezing temperatures. The deep penetrating formula retains the natural appearance of the surface without any build up or darkening effects. The masonry remains completely breathable and unchanged in appearance.
Klere-Treat WB is a water based masonry water repellent based on a silane/siloxane blend. Chemically reacting with masonry such as brick, block, natural and blue stone, Klere-Treat WB forms a highly hydrophobic repellent. It is highly alkaline resistant and designed for use on brick, concrete block, precast concrete, stucco, limestone, field stone and many other natural stones.

Klere-Treat WB can also be applied to parking garages, side walks, flat concrete or masonry surfaces to greatly increase protection from salt.

If the surface has already been sealed with a water repellent or you are unsure if there is a sealer present we recommend using solvent based Enviro-Shield 40%. A water based sealer will repel itself if still present within the masonry. This will not happen with the solvent based formula.

Sealing the masonry surface will prevent water and moisture from penetrating the surface. Water will also migrate in through cracks in joints or mortar, leaking roofs or dozen other ways. Weep holes are an important part of keeping a building dry by allowing trapped moisture to escape. Our Drain Only Weep Tubes efficiently wick away moisture while at the same time preventing insects, dirt and debris from entering the weep holes.
