New York. The city is a melting pot of culture, rich in history and an epicenter for artistic and creative development for the almost 8.5 million New Yorkers who call the city home. Kryton has been very active in the state of New York for almost 20 years, and we have a wide range of projects under our belts. From extremely technical flood-proofing and repair projects post Hurricane Sandy, to the new construction of iconic buildings such as the Whitney Museum of American Art, our team has provided expertise and support to hundreds of projects.
Dry Concrete LLC has been our master distribution partner for the Northeast USA for over 10 years, and has counseled and trained leading engineering, architectural and design-build firms on the application of our concrete waterproofing and repair systems. The weather in the New York region can really challenge even the most veteran concrete waterproofing contractors. With water-table levels in New York City and Long Island gaining as much as nine feet, year over year, and the temperature ranging from 23°F (-5°C) in winter to a balmy 83°F (28°C) in summer, freeze thaw issues are an ongoing issue.
When Hurricane Sandy ripped through the state as one of the worst disasters ever to hit East Coast, extreme flooding occurred in many vulnerable areas. Dry Concrete has since worked with many businesses to perform repairs and create waterproof concrete barriers to mitigate future damage of the same magnitude.
This month, we will explore the depth of concrete waterproofing that is required for this unique city, and showcase a few of the amazing Kryton projects that grace the New York City skyline.
