Weather is unpredictable, and the property damage it causes can add both cost and time to a building project. While it’s impossible to fully predict and react in a timely fashion to strong winds and storms, a documented and practiced contingency plan can help contractors prepare for the unexpected. Protect your site and project timeline by evaluating site-specific risks, properly securing materials and equipment, and anticipating alternate construction plans.
A dry-in plan for every project is a must. Water is one of the leading causes of damage to buildings under construction. Heavy rains can enter the exterior building envelope through unfinished window and door openings. Concrete structures are especially at risk of acting like a sponge and soaking up moisture, resulting in more damage and more extended dry out periods.
Long dry out periods stall the installation of finished products, such as framing, electrical, gypsum board, etc., and costs time and money. A plan for dry-in should be a significant part of a project’s preparedness checklist.

Pictured is one of 5 new high-rise housing units in Tampa using DRYLOK for dry-in. The completed buildings will be 8 stories. The building has only 2 floors complete, at each level, they will waterproof. The upper floors had not yet started to go up. All floors will get a coat of DRYLOK on the interior side.
You can see from the picture why the general contractor used the dry-in process. To keep the water out, they waterproofed the inside. In addition, continuing construction on the exterior is possible when the dry-in takes place inside. Negative side dry-in is a must in these circumstances.
