XYPEX / Foundation Paint / or Both?


Hi everyone!

I'm getting ready to paint my foundation but I am looking to seal / waterproof it rather than simply for estethics.

I've found this product at Home Hardware called XYPEX :

http://www.homehardware.ca/Products/...ncrt_xypex_5kg

Its a little expensive so I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this product or could provide some insight on it. Or should I simply avoid it and go straight to the paint.

Also, if anyone can recommend a good, solid, foundation paint. The only one HH seems to sell is Drylock: http://www.homehardware.ca/Products/index/show/product/I1886169/name/paint_ltx_drylok_white_3_78l

Should I be using a latex/acrylic/oil -based paint?

I live in a cold climate (New-Brunswick, Canada) Where temperatures can swing wildly in the winter, causing frequent thaw/freeze cycles.

If anyone can provide some direction, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Sherwin Williams Shercrete Is a flexible masonry waterproofer that comes in your choice of colors, that is what I would use.

We use it all of the time on vertical and walking surfaces, interior-exterior, I.e walls, patio floors, concrete pool decking, foundation walls
