Most painters say that concrete floors are the highest risk surface to paint. The reason being is because it will often peel. It's a great idea to paint it because it will look nice. The real question is how long it will last. There are some things to consider when painting concrete floors. The first, is it a new floor? If it is new concrete, you want to give it time to fully cure. The second is the preparation of the concrete. If the floor is in a garage or basement, it can be stained with other materials. It can be mechanically ground or etched so that the concrete is accepting to a paint-like material. It is quite a job to mechanically grind the concrete with diamond blades which create a lot of dust. You can also do it with chemicals, you use an acid to open up the pours, but it is a tough material to work with. It can cause burns and it is not good to inhale. But the prep-work needs to be done very well. Some of that prep-work entails cracks in the floors and leaks. Cracks need to be repaired with the right material because concrete does expand and contract so it will just crack again. The third thing to consider is what product to use. You can use a paint-based material to coat the floor, but this tends to peel. You could use a stain which stains the concrete, but what people don't like about stain is that you may pick a color, but once applied it can be a different shade, similar to wood stain. The third material you can use is two-part epoxy which gets very expensive, but it is supposed to last longer, it does have a high odor level and you have to be very careful working with it to get the type of finish that you want. There are also specific considerations for the painting process itself. When painting the garage or basement there is going to be humidity and moisture. Then you are going to get peeling. We advise, if you are going to do it, do it before you sell the house. Given all of the considerations to the preparation and the painting itself, I would not recommend painting concrete floors. In fact, even as a professional, I would not paint a concrete floor at all. I'd repair the cracks, but that is it.

What’s the difference between the two? You are considering waterproofing vs dampproofing when you are putting in.. fb.me/2EJpkXub3

What’s the difference between the two? You are considering waterproofing vs dampproofing when you are putting in a new foundation. It is done from the outside. Dampproofing is what you see all the time with either spray or roll-on black material. The intent of dampproofing is to simply stop the moisture in the soil from getting through the concrete. Waterproofing is not only stopping the moisture from the soil from getting through the concrete foundation, but also it prevents any liquid from getting in as well. It is about two or three times more expensive, but with dampproofing it is an asphalt material, organic, oil based and it does peel off eventually. Basement Waterproofing is really where you want to go to stop any water that is actually bearing against the foundation from coming through. Go with waterproofing anytime you have an option.

We went out and looked out a house in Dorchester, MA where a woman had a foundation crack in a poured concrete foundation. You could actually see the water coming in through the crack and we fixed it. About a month later she called me up and said she was getting water in the basement. I asked her if it was near the crack, and she said it was about 5 feet away in the middle of the foundation wall. We went out to take a look at it. Before our appointment she had a plumber there for another situation. There was a puddle there on the floor. They looked up and found dripping water from the cold water pipes, not because it was leaking from a hole in the pipe, but because of condensation. We see this a lot this time of year with the hot temperatures and the cold pipes. They insulated the pipes and she was all set. Another cause of condensation in the basement this time of year is that people tend to open the windows to let fresh air in. But, the air is full of moisture which causes additional problems like mold and mildew in the basement. My advice would be to keep the windows closed and get a dehumidifier to get the moisture out of the air. For more information on basement water proofing, contact A1 Foundation Crack Repair.

I got a call recently from a homeowner in Dedham, MA. He sent me some beautiful pictures of a beautifully painted stone foundation. There were three areas with water streaming from it in areas that had been painted. You are welcome to use water proofing paint on your stone foundation, it makes it look nice, but does it really stop water? I don't believe so. We fixed it, we have two methods we can use to fix these situations. The first is with oakum, which is like rope. We soak it in a polymer resin, clean out in between the stones where it the stone foundation is leaking, push it between the stones and then put a specialty mortar over that. Or, we can take another material which is a crystalized based material, again clean it out where it is leaking and put it in there. I wish we could have gotten there as the foundation was leaking. I like to fix it as the water is coming in, and the customers do too! We see these issues all over New England, from the Cape to Worcester to Rhode Island, Connecticut and New Hampshire.

Today, everyone wants an open concept for their home. And even when they are redoing their basement, they want to open that up. It would be nice to get rid of some of those lally columns that are in the way, especially if you are putting in a pool table or something like that. We get the question “can I move my lally columns” pretty often. You can do whatever you want to do, however with that said, it may not be good for the structure of your house. If there is a lally column in your kitchen/living area that runs to the and the basement area has been opened up, there needs to be support under the column in the kitchen. If you take those basement lally columns away, you could ruin the support of the whole structure. You could not only have damage to the beam because it is undersized, but also to the house itself. If you want to get rid of lally columns always consult a structural engineer. He may want beef up that beam that is against the ceiling of the basement maybe with a thicker piece of wood, maybe steel or an LVL beam which will give it additional strength. You can have lally columns farther apart and still provide support, but always consult a structural engineer. For more information, contact A1 Foundation Crack Repair.
