Do concrete paints (drylock) actually work?
Do the concrete paints such as Drylock actually work? I have a below grade garage with 2 walls made of concrete block. Because it is below grade, I often get dampness on the walls creating mildew in the garage. My walls have never been painted. I know the proper way to control water is to do it from the exterior (excavatation, drains, sealing, etc), but the condition is so minor, I was wondering if the paint would work. Would it also make it feel drier and kind of keep moisture from coming through the earth to the block?
