I want to paint my exposed basement (concrete) foundation with a durable concrete paint. I used DRYLOC masonry paint before but it is really gritty, thick, and hard to apply. I am looking for a concrete paint similar to what you see at inground pools or by the street department to paint curbs. Any suggestions?
If it's exposed then I am assuming it's ABOVE GRADE.............in that case you can paint with a latex paint of your choice, whether Satin or Semi-gloss in the color of your liking........no need for DRYLOCK which seals block on the INSIDE of the basement. If I misunderstood and you are applying something to exposed block BELOW GRADE that will later be backfilled, you need thoroseal which is a concrete based waterproofing that has to be mixed with water and goes on rather thick.
