Yea, I thought so too. If I'm spending thousands on refinishing my basement, I'd spend a little more to have some "overkill"

How many coats of Radon Seal did you apply?

If there is one place not to be cheap, it is moisture control. It protects the rest of your investment

I applied two coats, did it in small sections about 20 feet of wall at a time. Sprayed on the water, looped back and applied the radon seal, and looped back again. You might be able to do a bigger section in one time, I had to move stuff around my basement to apply it.

For anyone else wondering about this, here is the response I got from Radon Seal about using Drylok after Radon Seal:


Q.
I'm just wondering if it would be OK to first spray on the Radon Seal and then paint over that with Drylok?

A.
RS: Correct. Apply RadonSeal first (according to instruction) then apply DryLok 10 days later.

Q.
Drylok may not penetrate as deep because of the penetration of the Radon Seal, but have you heard of this?


A.
RS: Not an issue as DryLok is merely a paint. Penetrates very little inside concrete. RadonSeal will act as a primer for DryLok.

Check with drylock as well. They may say that it voids any warranty or that out won't adhere correctly.
