July 2012: StormDry: Breathable Protection Against Penetrating Damp & Even Floods We explain the benefits of waterproofing treatment StormDry and how it can be used to prevent penetrating damp in stone and brick. StormDry is a water-repellent cream used to protect masonry against penetrating damp and rain. Invisible once applied, this waterproofing treatment penetrates deeply into brick or stone creating a breathable barrier against water ingress.
Keeping the stone or brickwork dry with StormDry waterproofing cream effectively increases energy efficiency by up to 29%*, and thus saves money in the process. StormDry has an impressive expected lifespan of 20-30 years and can even be used over freshly pointed walls.
When used in conjunction with a cavity drain and pump system, StormDry reduces the amount of water able to pass through the masonry under storm and flood conditions, reducing the burden on the pump system and therefore the risk of "overload" or pump failure.
