Sealing and waterproofing cinder block cold storage
This will be my first post as i've just purchased my first home and need some advice.
I have a cold storage under the front steps of my new house. I'd like to get rid of it as the cinder block above ground is falling apart and we'd like to have a deck instead. The cold storage is about 1.5ft above the basement floor. I know that i'll need some cinder block to build up the entry into the cold storage but i'm not exactly sure how to waterproof the exterior of the new cinder block wall. I did as much searching as I could with google and found that using some kind of rubberized membrane like Bakor Aqua-Bloc would do the job. Can someone confirm that i'm on the right track or should I really seek the assistance of a pro?
