Simple question (I hope):
I am having replacement carpet installed in my basement with tack strips
already there. I am planning to coat the concrete with Drylok before
that installation. Can the Drylok be painted right over the tack strips
to water seal them as well?
Thanks all -

I don't know, but put synthitic carpet in your basement. When my

just had to dry.
...Assuming there's even a moisture issue.
I know the OP says he's going to "coat the concrete with Drylok before
that installation" but he didn't say why.
Since it's "replacement carpet" that's going down, one might think
that if there was a moisture problem the wood would have rotted and
the nails/tacks would have rusted already.
I think we need a little more info here.
