Default Re: Tile Adhering to Slightly Damp Cinder Block

Not to get off track of sealers... A common practice with brick is to leave a "weep" hole. It's just a gap at the bottom thats missing mortar/grout so any moisture that gets in, can bleed out. I don't see why that wouldn't apply to tile. Obviously you want to keep the water off of the product when you set your tile. At the end of the day, most of these products enjoy a slow cure. You should be fine.
