Using of hempcrete as exterior walls let the water in without getting damage or rotting, because of this, the moisture level is conserved with the absorbed water releasing as the temperature increases. Hence, it can withstand rain or wet environments. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 38 Answers 0 Best Answers 79 Points View Profile hempbarn32 2020-06-19T13:47:02-04:00Added an answer on June 19, 2020 at 1:47 pm Not only water proof but also mold proof also as another bonus. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 313 Answers 0 Best Answers 662 Points View Profile amanda.tolar 2020-04-26T02:57:04-04:00Added an answer on April 26, 2020 at 2:57 am Hempcrete is waterproof, as long as it is being used above-ground. Underground uses are still kind of iffy. But, I predict, as the industry grows and gains more mainstream traction, that the drawbacks and hiccups with hemp building materials will be remedied! 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 461 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-04-23T16:55:38-04:00Added an answer on April 23, 2020 at 4:55 pm Hempcrete is said to be waterproof. My cousin, who has built with Hempcrete, said that he would say it’s water-resistant, not waterproof. He said that since the Hempcrete is made with water, I’d there is some water in the foundation, then it will get absorbed but the Hempcrete. He did say, though, that there is no way that it would absorb a full-blown leak or being submerged in water. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
