Today came back to do the polyurethane clear coat and was done after a couple hours. However I am not...

    Has anyone used Super Thoroseal or Radonseal Plus for their poured concrete walls in their basement? I'm also planning on using Epoxy-coat for the floor. Would these products work to create a dry semi-finished basement?
