Waterproof Paint, Plastic Vapor Barrier, Or Concrete Sealer?

Sealing the concrete surfaces in your basement will keep back moisture penetration through the pores of the concrete. But some products work better than others, and some are better in particular situations. This article covers the three most common ways of sealing a basement: waterpoof paint, plastic vapor barriers, and concrete sealers. read more

  • Dear PPK, Inc.,

    This product will enhance your outcome. We have used Concrete Treat for over four years. We’ve sprayed Concrete Treat on hundreds of thousands of square feet of steel-troweled concrete that was poured between December and February in Ohio.

    One project (our first experience with Concrete Treat) was a 10,000 square-foot steel -troweled floor, and we poured it in late December. Due to permit issues, the building was not erected until two months after the slab was poured. We sprayed Concrete Treat on it and never put insulating blankets on it. The average temperature was 28 degrees Fahrenheit during that time period and there was no spalling or popping on the entire slab.

    It has been over four years since, and the slab looks as good as it did the day we poured it. Our insulated concrete blankets are now a thing of the past. We use Concrete Treat to protect all our flatwork from the unpredictable Ohio winters. What I have seen Concrete Treat do is impressive!

  • I am blown away by the effectiveness of Concrete Treat. We applied this product to every breezeway, walkway, and staircase in a brand-new 216-unit apartment complex in Happy Valley, OR.

    The trick to our situation was we had residents already living in the units so we needed a fast-drying, yet still effective sealant. Concrete Treat met the expectations and then some! The application process was simple – more simple than any other concrete sealer I have ever tried. The dry time was about 30 minutes in 76 degree (F) weather and about an hour in 65 degrees. We had foot traffic in 2 hours and rain in 18 but the sealant held up and is still holding strong! The product is so effective it even repels itself if you accidentally try and reapply in an area.

    Within the first couple of weeks a resident let their dog pee in the breezeway. It all just beaded up and stood there until I found it and dried it up about 2 hours later. Disgusting story, I know, but it shows how wonderful this product is! Unlike other sealants, Concrete Treat does not make the surface slippery when wet, so we confidently applied to every stair tread in the complex.

    Honestly I am waiting for something to go wrong with the product, but it keeps proving itself to be the most effective concrete sealant every single day.

  • Your product is everything it is portrayed to be. It went on easily with a garden sprayer, sealed the entire floor to the point that water moved like beads of mercury. Amazing. We were careful with the prep, since it was an eight year old floor and had spots on it of ? – mostly coolant, oil, etc. We used a steam cleaner on all spots with vinegar water to assist. All spots sealed perfectly. We waited 24 hours as a precaution before moving machinery, but rollers, sliding, etc. all went easily and left no marks. We are pleased and impressed…”

  • We have used this product on several projects where the homeowner has concerns over the damp spots where the new concrete has not fully cured. Rather than asking the homeowner to give it the proper time to cure, we have your product. The dampness goes away quickly and the homeowner is happy. Great product! We will continue to use Concrete Treat and tell others about it.

  • It makes perfect sense. No more wasted time installing and retrieving blankets.

  • I can treat as soon as concrete is placed. I don’t have to make a trip back to seal the job– that’s a winner!
