The Enviro-Dry Waterproofing System: Creating a Dry and Healthy Living Environment for You

water-proofing-company-rochester-nyCan you trust any “Average Joe” to tell you that you have a water problem? How can you know the true size, scope, and severity of the problem – if it exists?

At EnviroTech, we leave the guessing to our tools and instruments to give us accurate, reliable readings and data of the existing building conditions. EnviroTech relies on its certified inspectors to analyze the data and put together a practical evaluation of your home or building.

Most importantly, EnviroTech has developed the most comprehensive waterproofing solution in the industry.

The Enviro-Dry Waterproofing System: How it Works

We start with the simplest and least costly techniques to remove excessive internal moisture sources in the basement while ventilating other high humidity sources (e.g., clothes dryer, bathroom, and kitchen). EnviroTech offers whole home dehumidification systems and commercial stand-alone dehumidifiers as a first line of defense against water, humidity, and moisture.

Next, if condensation in the summer is the problem, we can improve ventilation through filtered custom dehumidification systems or with a desiccant-type heat exchanger. Dehumidification can be used as a means of reducing the symptoms of humidity and odor in a basement, but it is not a permanent or complete solution.

Our more advanced systems go beyond the symptoms and get to the root of your water and moisture problems. Some of these elements include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Drains & Diverters – Proper drainage makes a basement waterproofing system successful. EnviroTech drains allow substantial amounts of water flow to quickly leave the home. The water diverter establishes pathways underneath your basement/crawlspace floor to allow water to exit your building. We recommend and use Polydrain, Channel-Cove or System Platon, depending on your situation. These solutions are 100% environmentally compatible and can be installed in any weather, rain or shine, down to minus 20ºF.
  • Sump Pumps and Backups – The sump pump is only as good as the backup power supply that ensures operation in an emergency. The Pitbull Battery Backup Pump System is always on guard against basement flooding! This energy-efficient system out pumps the competition and uses less battery power. Audible alarms notify owners of power interruption or primary pump failure and can be silenced for up to 24 hours. POWER GUARD is another innovative emergency backup power station designed to provide power to a primary sump pump during a power outage. POWER GUARD provides full protection from power outages and maintains maximum pumping capacity until power is restored. POWER GUARD monitors the power line and automatically detects when a power failure occurs.
  • Interior and Exterior Waterproofing Membranes – The porous nature of many building materials, and the incredible cohesion and adhesion of water means that liquid water can move against the force of gravity quite effectively. The primary defenses against this king of water movement are non-porous materials – such as sheet metal, impermeable membranes, closed-cell foams or plastics – or free-draining air spaces, generally 3/8″ (10 mm) or larger.
