Using of hempcrete as exterior walls lets 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 39 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp amanda.tolar Waynesburg, United States (US) 0 Questions 292 Answers 0 Best Answers 603 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 113 Answers 0 Best Answers 239 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 water proof. My cousin who actually has built with Hempcrete said that he would said it’s water resistant not water proof. He said that since the Hempcrete is made with water, I’d there is some water in the foundation or whatever 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 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
