Why Does This Happen?
If your sealant is flaking, the most common cause is that there is moisture in your foundation walls. This can happen because of pressure from soil, pools of water against your home, leaks in certain places, and from inadequate waterproofing.
Wall sealant does offer a layer of protection against damp, but it is not a waterproofing solution, and really should be used in conjunction with other treatments that can better protect your home, and stop water from finding its way into your walls.
Exterior waterproofing is the ultimate solution to prevent your foundations from getting damp. Water is diverted away from the outside of your property, and the walls are covered with a membrane that actually prevents water from breaching them.
