Concrete admixture for waterproofing?
We are remodeling and converting some of the garage to living space. We are replacing the foundation stem walls and slab. We had some musty odors in the first floor of the home before starting the remodel, and want to be sure to mitigate any future issues (1 1/2 of the walls are below grade, the slab is at grade (hillside lot)
We will have sub slab drains, and foundation drains, as well as sub slab eps and a vapor barrier. As added protection I was thinking about a hydrophbic admixture for the concrete. Does anyone have experience with this ? Would you recommend? what to look out for? I was thinking of using for slab and foundation stem walls.
