Professional Painter SOUGHT

Recommended Posts


This is what we do and we have never had salitre come back in an already treated spot.

After thoroughly removing the affected concrete, usually about 2 inches deep, we use Sika AntiSalitre via a spray bottle. We wait a full week before first filling the area about 1/2 - 3/4 deep with Cemex Multiplast. When that has had time to dry we do a finish coat.

Since the locals call salitre "rising dampness", I would guess that most salitre that occurs lower in walls both inside and out is not the result of direct exposure to rain, but moisture coming from the ground below. A friend suggested waiting to treat salitre until January or February to allow the moisture to finally abate. We don't always wait.
