Unfortunately, no repairs are ever really permanent. Waterproofing masonry is no exception. If you use a water repellent coating, you should plan to reapply it every three, five, or seven years, depending on the specific product and the manufacturer's recommendations. Applying water repellant coatings doesn't require any special skills or equipment. Just follow the manufacturer's instructions for handling, application, cleanup, and disposal. You'll be OK.
