B-Dry System Franchise
B-Dry System is a franchise for a business providing waterproofing services. The system itself was developed by Joseph Bevilacqua, Sr. in 1930. It was in 1958 that he began his waterproofing career when he took over the business.
In 1960, he discovered the liquid sealer that was an effective material to seal walls while using wire mesh, visquene, and concrete. He had this drain system patented in 1966. In 1993, they developed a special kind of concrete that was long lasting and superior to anything that was on the market. In 1998, he patented the FREE FLO which is a waterproofing technology that was a result of 40 years of research. In 2001, he introduced AquaJets for the FREE FLO pipes that allow it to “self-flush”. They were able to waterproof the 180,000th basement in 2003 and all of them have a full life-of-structure insurance that can be transferred from owner to owner. In 2008, they partnered with Blue Canyon who are experts in Healthy Home System.
