Seal Wet Basement Wall

It's important to determine the cause of the wet wall. Getting to the root of the problems and correcting it can prevent more costly damage. If you have a continual problem with water, you may want to inquire about having a sump pump or drainage system installed to keep as much moisture out of your basement as possible. If you cannot gage how extensive your water problem is, or the cause, get professional help. Many companies specialize in these types of problems. Browse the Internet for referral sites or check your local phone book.

Make sure to get the correct sealer for your wall. The material used in your walls will determine the type of sealer you should apply. If you have any uncertainty, consult your local home improvement center or have a professional do the sealing work.

If you plan to do-it-yourself, make sure to take measurements of the area to be covered. This will ensure you purchase the correct amount. Also, make sure to protect any objects or areas where you don't want sealers. Just like painting, applying sealer can be messy. When spraying or using a brush or roller to apply the sealer, make sure the wall is as dry as possible. You do not want to dilute the sealer.
