Can light-weight block (CMU) be successfully coated to prevent water intrusion, or is it best to build with standard weight?


Selected Answers

From Andrew Antoniades of Antoniades Architecture, PC on April 16, 2011:
Yes, provided it receives at least one coat of block filler, then is primed to receive a finish coat for the needs of the space or exterior.
