Masonry paint or drylok
Hi hope everyone is safe and healthy. My basement has a small 6×9 room that I’m leaving uninsulated. I also have a wall next to my staircase that I’m leaving bare. I insulated the rest of the basement. My question is about painting the remaining concrete white. I’m not holding off any water but was wondering if waterproofing paint would have better adhesion or would be a safe bet in case of humidity. I have the option of just using masonry paint or using drylok for ease of application. Any potential harm or drawbacks is just using the drylok white paint compared to white masonry interior/exterior paint. Finally I have plumbing and hvac in room, do I have to use a separate paint for that application? Plumbing is old 4 inch metal drain pipe. I believe that would be copper. Im just going to paint everything white.
