Dryfast provides all aspects of exterior Waterproofing. We specialize in protecting buildings from water intrusion. We are able to locate even the most difficult to find water intrusion that cause water damage and mold to the property.
Most water intrusions start from old foundation wall, siding, stucco, windows or the roof. In most cases we found that the problem originates at the installation. Missing building moisture barrier, cracked siding or stucco or not properly installed Windows causes serious problems. We explore all options utilizing our field experience to locate the source of the damage.
Exterior Waterproofing Process
We have developed a unique process that allows us to locate and fix the Waterproofing issue right the first time. In many situations we have found more than one leak associated at the same location. For example water is getting through a small crack in the stucco into the building. Secondly, at the same time the water test discovers that a window is has a small leak that is causing the dry rot.
Finding the the source is critical, our goal is to fix the Waterproofing systems issue and to address what else needs to be fixed in the near future.
With over 14 successful years in the waterproofing business, we feel confident in giving advice to our clients on details regarding their future project. We work closely with Geo engineers ensuring that we provide the best solution to each waterproofing job.

Exterior window repairs
Water intrusion from old or wrongly installed windows can cause damage to the interior of the property, affecting drywall, insulation, flooring. If not caught on time, can most likely cause dry rot and therefore develop into a mold condition, which needs to be treated properly in order to mitigate the microbial growth and protect from spreading around and cause cross contamination to other areas in the property.
The solution: remove and replace all affected materials. Inspect the window once the drywall is removed, apply water to the exterior of the window to locate the origin of the leak. Check if window is installed properly. If possible we need to remove and reinstall the window or replace with a new one.
Once installed, we will perform another water test to ensure that there is no more leaks, then install insulation and drywall to complete the project –
Stucco, Siding, Glass, Concrete or Paneling Exterior Reairs.
t does not need much for water to get into the building, it only starts with a small crack or small exterior damage due to temperature amplitude, seasons and time.
Once water gets to the interior of the building it creates a bigger problem. Having your exterior checked by experienced Waterproofing company once every year can save you money and time that you need to spend dealing with this matter.
Exterior Waterproofing Inspection
We usually check for small cracks on the exterior, especially around the windows, metal flashings and joints between stucco to siding, siding to concrete, wood trim to stucco or siding.
Our Waterproofing inspection reports are free of charge. They include photographs, detailed recommendations and an estimate. We guarantee our Waterproofing projects, please check our guarantee page on the website for details.
If you have basement walls that are causing water damage, mold or they absorb moisture from the soil outside, we can help stop the source by locating the affected area and approaching it according to the specific circumstances.
Each job is different, we create specific scope of work to each project, to ensure quality service.
We can change the course of the water and navigate it away from the property by proper installation of “French Drain” or other waterproofing products for underground water management. We specialize in new construction Waterproofing and repairs for residential and commercial jobs.
Crawlspace Water Management
Some properties are located in a high water table or down the hill and these houses can collect and keep the water under the house for a long period of time, which can cause serious damage to building materials, framing and indoor air quality in the house.
We can install moisture barriers to keep the water below from being in contact with the crawlspace therefore keeping it dry.
Dryfast can also design and install drain channels that goes to a sump pump so that we can prevent water from collecting under the house.
Humidity controlled vents to maintain humidity levels are very effective. Dryfast specializes in smart vent installations. These vents create negative pressure and are able to move large amounts of air. Creating the air movement necessary to prevents mold and microbial growth.
