Cinderblock - To paint or not to paint Answered
I always had this question in my mind. Was the cinderblock designed to breathe? In other words do we want the moisture to go from one side to the other in case of cinderblock walls (say in the basement walls?)
Logically, I would think that the answer is that we want to prevent the moisture to go from one side to the other. If that is the case, why the cinderblock makers do not make waterproof cinderblocks by adding water proofing chemicals during the manufacturing process?
I would greatly appreciate your insights on this subject.
