Sani-tred


I would like to get the thoughts and comments on the product Sani-tred. It's used to seal basement foundations. I want to hear all the pros and cons as I am interested in knowing before I purchase. I live in Ontario Canada. We have a cold environment, damp and humid. Let me know.. Thanks

I wouldn't recommend sealing a foundation on the interior. Hydraulic pressure pushes from the exterior and the coating will eventually delaminate and fail. Moisture control for basements should always be from the exterior.

Is this like Radon Seal that sprays on and reacts with the lime in the concrete or more of a paint? I remember reading that it was expensive back when I was looking.
