Damp/water proofing that can be applied in freezing temps

jjchill | Posted in General Questions on

I just had concrete walls poured and here at 7000 ft in Utah winter has pretty much started. Does anyone know of a damp proofing product I can apply at freezing temps? Or am I just going to need to tent and heat?  I really need these walls back filled before they fill with snow.

    Thank you. I wasn’t able to get it locally but found tremco’s tremproof 250gc. The tech at tremco said below freezing was fine as long as the bucket was kept at room temperature before application and no frost was present on the wall.

      Good to know.
      Good luck getting things done before the weather deteriorates there.
