Default waterproofing cinderblock

I got a customer that wants a cinderblock building waterproofed. A few years ago I used a sealer called drylok by ugl and it seemed to work fine but the customer is thinking he may want it sealed outside on ext. and inside as well. If this is necessary I will do it, but is it? Whats standard procedure on this? ext., int., both? thanx

Do you mean a clear sealer or are you painting it?

Also, see what kind of block it is. There are different grades- Some meant to be sealed and some are to porous.

This is a #1 light weight cinderblock. We are going to clear seal it except for the ceiling.

Default customer satisfaction

If the customer is thinking exterior.....well you have your calling. Do the exterior as well, bill him nicely and fulfill his dream. Everyone is happy. Charge plenty for the outside if you are worried about it. Enough to make you happy as well. Life is good for all.
