Waterproofing Testimonial: Hurricane Matthew
Hurricane Matthew was a Category 5 hurricane that swept through the Western Atlantic, including parts of Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti and the southeastern United States.
According to reports, in total, the storm killed 49 people in the US, including 28 in North Carolina, 12 in Florida, 3 in Georgia, 4 in South Carolina, and 2 in Virginia. Early estimates indicated total economic losses between $4–6 billion in the southeastern United States, prior to the widespread flooding in North Carolina.
In Dare County, North Carolina officials estimated $42.6 million in damage to over 4,500 properties in the county, of those, 234 received major damage.
With so much devastation in the eastern regions of Virginia and North Carolina, many homeowners were left with flooded crawl spaces and living spaces. However, South Mills, North Carolina resident, Matt Moyer, was fortunate enough to have his property protected from the hurricane thanks to waterproofing solutions by JES.
JES installed two sump pumps and a foundation drainage tile system in Mr. Moyer’s crawl space prior to Hurricane Matthew. Because of Matt Moyer’s decision to contact JES, JES was able to propose and install solutions that kept Mr. Moyer’s crawl space dry during the hurricane. In fact, Matt Moyer’s JES sump pumps were able to successfully pump over 218,000 gallons of water from under his home during the massive regional flooding.
