I’m Drysdale

Most people don’t really like crawl spaces.  I admit they lack luster, but I don’t mind them.  I’m Drysdale, and I represent Dry Otter Waterproofing.  I’ve been keeping crawl spaces and basements dry for many years, and I think its time I impart the knowledge I’ve gained with all of you.  So I’m starting a blog.  I’ll post tips and tricks, some of the jobs I’ve been working on, and of course some of my shenanigans.  I like to go to festivals on the weekends so I’ll tell about that.  

I started a Facebook page the other day.  Make sure we’re friends, and follow Dry Otter to be notified of my newest blog posts.  Remember I’m here to help and when you’re ready to schedule an inspection of your foundation, give the office a call.  

In the meantime, check out these awesome pics of me on the job and having fun.  Thanks for reading!
