    What are you using to seal concrete foundations with prior to building raised patios against them? Almost all of our 2004 projects involved some sort wall with a raised patio at the sill level. Are you all applying black sealer to the foundation or something different like Ice/Water shielding to prevend moisture from the subbase from permeating the walls?

    The foundation walls should already be sealed, IMHO...

    When we fixed the foundation under our sunroom this summer, I waterproofed/sealed the walls with roofing tar.

    The tar needs to be the trowel-on, fibered type. I used a 3-knot brush to apply it, I suppose there are other ways too. I believe I got a 5 gallon bucket of it at HD for ~$25, I think it was Henry brand....
