The age of your home has a lot to do with why you get a wet basement
- When your home was built a coating of tar was applied to seal the foundation against dampness.
- The tar is an organic material that degrades over time and usually lasts about 20-30 years.
- If your house is over 30 years old the tar coating is probably gone for good.
- Once the tar is gone your foundation is no longer sealed.
A wet basement can’t be fixed with “waterproofing” paint
- When you paint the inside of your wet basement wall, you can slow down moisture, but not water.
- You are not eliminating the water from entering the cement block wall from outside and causing your wet basement.
- You can literally put on 10-20-100 coats of paint, but it will never hold the water back.
- Once the hydrostatic pressure builds up the water will force itself through at some point.
- Paint does not prevent a wet basement, it’s just paint, so pick a nice color.
