Sani-Tred


Has anyone used Sani-Tred for sealing their basement from moisture? I would like to know if this is a viable alternative to paying a fortune to a basement waterproofing company.

I have no idea what sani tred is and you don't describe it in the least.

As to basements that get water... the remedies that work are few:
1) good foundation grading does wonders
2) have a mechanical way for any rising groundwater to escape

Look for them on the Better Business Bureau (they're on there). Their complaint history might be of interest to you.

Cortell, I just went to the BBB site and could only find mention of four complaints. That does not seem too bad. I did a Google search on them and found that in other DIY forums some people have had good success with it. I called the company and they said the main factor is surface preparation. They suggested sandblasting the paint of the cement and then applying the product.

Sani-Tred


I'm going to use Sani-Tred to take care of leaks along my wall-floor joint. A friend of mine gave some Lightning Strip to strip the Drylok from the concrete block and the slab.

Most of the feedback I've heard, both from contractors who use the product regularly and from DIY users, is very positive. I ordered the product yesterday, and I'll probably start the job next week. Hopefully I'll get around to posting a couple of pictures. Either way, I'll let you know how things work out. I have light surface water maybe eight times a year, coinciding with heavy rain storms, so I'll definitely find out if it works.
