Q:

Tom and Leslie,

i live in northwest florida and my house is on a hill.  the crawl space is very spacious.  i have over 300 square feet of concrete floor with a 8.5 foot ceiling.  the space is not damp due to the dehumidifier that is drained to the exterior and the proactive approach to properly draining my gutters.  what i would like to do is apply a coat of paint to the concrete block to make this space a little more attractive.  i did a little research and found that the hardware store has a moisture blocking paint but moisture is not a problem.  i could apply a primer.  do you know of any paints that would be appropriate in this space?
