Are Earthborn paints suitable for damp basements or cellars?

Basements are often affected by damp. We’d recommend Claypaint as a suitable paint for basement and cellar walls with ongoing damp problems. It’s a highly breathable interior emulsion with a high clay content, suitable for painting over new and old lime plaster, as well as painting walls that have been stripped of previous paint, and is an ideal for painting basements.

It’s important to treat the damp problem as a whole. By using a breathable paint in conjunction with other breathable building materials, which will allow moisture and water vapour to flow through the walls and help prevent a build-up of trapped moisture. This is especially important in older properties that may have had a variety of damp proofing works carried out in the past, some of which may not always be suitable for the age of property and original building method. We’d advise contacting a specialist who understands how to treat damp basements and cellars and has experience working with older period properties.
