Soon we will be moving from a small old house to a large old house. The basement of the new house is dry. No sump, no dehumidifier, no water, just a little basement smell. The walls are poured concrete. I have been thinking that even though the walls donÃ¯Â¿Â½t leak they may look better if they were painted with a sealer such as Drylock or the like. Part of me says if it isnÃ¯Â¿Â½t broken donÃ¯Â¿Â½t fix it. The other part says it may cut down on basement humidity and will look better.
Is there any downside to using these types of products? Please add your opinion if you have used these or been in a similar situation.
