Help... the painters said they knew how to fix my crumbling stone basement walls!

But now that everything has been moved and vacuumed up , they can not figure out how to get the Dryloc on the walls. My walls are efflorescence(sp)so all you need to do is touch them and more stuff will crumble off. They thought they would spray it on but it is too thick. The roller will miss spots b/c stone foundation. Any how to's would be appreciated.

You will need to get rid of the efforencence first in order for this product to adhear to the wall. You can do this with muratic acid. Once you have done this and the wall has dried for a few days you can apply the Drylock and you may have roll and follow with a a brush to get it in all the pores of the masonry. Be sure to apply two coats.
