Flood proofing is an investment in protecting your building. It gives you peace of mind and can drastically reduce the risk of costly flooding disasters. When flooding happens, the ability to react quickly and protect infrastructure is critical. Using barriers to stop floodwaters from reaching damageable portions of your building is considered a dry flood proofing method. Dry flood proofing is commonly used to protect openings such as pedestrian doors, garage doors, driveways, dock doors, building exteriors and storefronts.
