It may surprise you to learn that most of our commercial calls are for a commercial flooding solution without a history of flooding. The featured image is a mural on a McDonald’s wall in Knoxville. This franchise owner decided he wanted to add a second drive-thru lane to his store. He was informed that in order to obtain the building permit, he must first flood proof the building — which had never once experienced a flood! He was informed that the only way to do this was to level the site, raise it, and rebuild. This wall motivated him to search for another option. That is when his architect found FloodSafe USA. We had the great pleasure of informing him that we could seal his walls and install flood doors for a tiny fraction of what he would spend tearing it all down and rebuilding…and he wouldn’t lose a single day of business doing it! The walls got their first “test” while our team was on the road home. A planter built along the wall had not been filled in yet, and a heavy rain filled the entire planter, with no moisture penetration to the interior of the store. Needless to say, this franchise owner was very happy he found us!
