Why Opt for Temporary Flood Barriers for Homes?

  • Ease of Installation
    The company brings the cofferdam(s) to where you need to repel rising water. The tubes will suck on-site water to inflate the dam slowly and evenly. Once the dam is full, it will rest firmly against the ground and then repel any water penetration. The main advantage is that the cofferdams leave little or no footprint, which eliminates the concerns of altering the aesthetic appearance of your property.
  • Ease of Removal
    Temporary flood barriers are easy to remove when the area is no longer at risk. Our cofferdams, in particular, are deflated after the flood recedes. Once the barrier is removed, it leaves little to no footprint on the surroundings. Its portability and light-weight design means storing it is easy and if you move, you’re not abandoning your investment, because you can bring it with you.
