A leaking basement is a common problem that has a very simple solution. Water can seep through foundation walls leaving minerals on the surface or even puddles on the floor. Without proper ventilation mold and mildew will quickly take root. Concrete or block walls may begin to soften or even crumble from prolonged water damage. It can be used as a waterproofing underlayment for long term water protection. Stop the water for good with Epoxy Waterproofer! For 40 years Epoxy Waterproofer has proven it’s ability to stop water and withstand tons of hydro-static pressure.
Stop Radon Gas:
Epoxy Waterproofer works by creating a 15 mil impervious film on the surface of the wall that tenaciously bonds with the strength of 100% epoxy. An added result of completely stopping the transmission of water is that you also stop the transmission of vapor and gases, including radon gas. Epoxy Waterproofer will seal your basement or garage and prevent the intrusion of radon gases.
It’s Safe and Easy to Apply
No solvents are added to this 100% epoxy, there is no obnoxious smells or toxic fumes. Application is as easy as evenly mixing the part B into the part A and then applying with a brush or roller over the affected areas. Add color packs if desired in order to tint the epoxy to easier blend away or hide repairs to your leaking basement.
Epoxy Waterproofer withstands hydro-static pressure and will not peel or flake off of the surface.

This picture is an example of a neglected chimney which over the years has been allowed to absorb water and the results are the damaged joints and the destruction of the whole chimney. This chimney will require a professional to set up staging, cut out loose and bad mortar joints and then apply new mortar to the joints. There are many clear sealers on the market, they all proclaim to be the best, use my product, but when you read the fine print they all work best when applied to a sound surface. Clear sealers cannot take the place of mortar and sound solid bricks. Clear sealers, the active solids left behind in the pores of the masonry can only work properly when the mortar joints are tuck pointed tightly and the bricks don’t have spalling faces and the roof cap cannot have mortar missing. The roof flashing must be in good shape or sealing your chimney will only stop some of the water.

Traditionally, basement waterproofing always involved excavating the foundation; a costly undertaking indeed. Today there are a number of ways to fix wet basements from within the basement itself – a much less expensive (and less destructive) proposition.
There are many ways to stop ground water from entering a finished basement through a leaking crack, but none of them are as simple as using our Epoxy Waterproofer. Just brush it over a crack, allow it to set and you’re done, no chipping and no patching. Wide cracks can be sealed by mixing clean silica sand into the epoxy to make an epoxy mortar that will stay in place while it cures. Watch our video to see how simple it is.
De-Icings salts such as rock salt, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and other salt related products all do damage to concrete surfaces. The resulting slurry of melted ice and salt is absorbed into the concrete causing spalling and general erosion of the surface. Salt Block WB does not allow the salty slurry created by the de-icing salt from soaking into the concrete and destroying your concrete surface. A chemical reaction occurs within the pores of the concrete creating an invisible barrier which prevents absorption into the surface. A treatment of Salt Block will save you hundreds of dollars in future concrete repairs.
What if the damage is already done?
Concrete that has pitted and spalled needs to be repaired using a concrete repair mortar such as Plas-Tex Powder. All broken and loose concrete needs to be removed prior to patching to ensure the patch gets a strong, permanent bond. Once all patching has been completed and allowed to cure the surface can now be sealed with Salt Block WB to protect and prevent future damage from de-icing salts.
Klere-Treat WB is a masonry water repellent based on a silane and siloxane. Under the influence of atmospheric humidity, it chemically reacts with and bonds to masonry, forming a highly effective poly-siloxane repellent. It is highly alkaline resistant and designed for use on brick, concrete block, precast concrete, stucco, limestone, fieldstone and many other natural stones.
Kleare-Treat WB provides superior protection against moisture penetration, thereby preventing the deleterious effects of efflorescence. The deep penetrating application retains it’s natural appearance with no surface build up or darkening effects. The masonry remains completely breathable.
Klere-Treat WB can also be applied to parking garages and flat concrete or masonry surfaces to reduce attack from deicing salts.
The advantages of Klere-Treat WB include:
Deep Penetration into surfaces
Does non contain wax, gum resins, silicas or silicones
Unlike many water repellents Klere-Treat WB does not break down due to alkali in masonry.
