      Hello, I am renovating a 1940's house with a poured basement. I don't think water has been an on going problem, but there has been some. The walls are peeling and flaking. Can I clean away any loose debree and apply this product to seal the interior walls with success? I plan on doing some landscape as well to re-direct the water away from the foundation. I live in North Dakota, were do I get this product?

      Firstly based on the fact that you indicate there is peeling,
      it sounds like the concrete is painted or has some other coating on it.  If the leaking is at a crack or specific
      point then the coating may not need to be removed.  If it is a point leak then I would recommend our
      “chip and pack” technique for repair of this point leak.  Use the techniques shown for crack repair on
      our web site and modify as required. 
      Note that this type of work may be better done by a waterproofing
      contractor familiar with our products. 
      If the leaking is wider spread and of a more “weeping concrete” standpoint
      then the coating on the concrete likely needs to be removed and then a coat of
      Concentrate and Modified applied.

      In ND our distributor is Structural Materials (they have
      several locations) or contact our Manu Rep in ND – Chris Krage – 763-754-3093.
