Masonry Waterproofing Sealers

It is a well known fact that the cost associated with getting a masonry structure (which has been damaged by water) repaired is much more than the costs associated with preventing the water damage. This is the reason why it very important to protect any masonry from any kind of damage that might result due to the retention or seepage of water through the masonry structure. In such a case, the only thing that can be of help is a masonry waterproofing sealer.

Masonry waterproofing sealers can be used for the purpose of protecting masonry works and these days there are a large number of companies out there which have started manufacturing these sealer. Let us take a look at some of the good ones which can provide your masonry structure the kind of protection that is needed by it.

MasonrySaver All Purpose Heavy Duty Water Repellent

MasonrySeaver is basically a heavy duty water repellent that is a proprietary blend of silanes and siloxanes. The sealer is used for the purpose of avoiding water seepage or retention in masonry and works by penetrating the surface to be protected to react with the minerals present inside and form a hydrophobic zone..

The advantage of using MasonrySeaver is that it can be used one wide array of surfaces such as concrete, clay bricks, mortar, natural stone, sandstone, granite., terra cotta, aggregate, cement stuccos, and even concrete masonry units.

Behr Protector & Waterproofer No. 980

Behr protector and waterproofer no. 980 is basically a waterproofing formula that can be used both in the interior and exterior. It is a water based silicone sealer that works by penetrating 1/2” into the surface that needs to be protected.

The waterproofing sealer protects the surface by creating a barrier inside the surface that keeps the water out but allows the escape of water vapor. This in effect helps in protecting the surface against corrosion, spalling, and damage due to the frequent freeze thaw cycles.

It can be used on the following areas:

  • Concrete surfaces such as pavers, stucco, concrete blocks, tiles, aggregate surfaces, slate, sandstone.
  • Vertical as well as horizontal masonry surfaces.

RadonSeal DryWay Subsurface Water-Repellent Sealer

DryWay is a concrete and masonry sealer that penetrated into the surface that needs to be protected and forms an elastomeric water-repellent barrier well below the surface. The water repellent nature of the sealer allows for beading and shedding of rainwater from the surface. This reduces the chance that stagnant water would damage the surface. A big advantage of using this sealer is that the protective surface’s effectiveness is not dependent on the cement content in the surface, as is the case with other traditional sealer.

Also since it is very easy to use and durable it is far more cost effective as compared to other sealers that are available in the market as such. The sealer can be used to protect masonry, driveways, pool decks, clay bricks, stucco, etc.

These are a few of the masonry waterproofing sealers that are available in the market and which can used to effectively protect masonry surfaces from water damage.
