SWR Institute Member Searchable Directory

Manufacturer members can be searched by the type of product in which they sell. Contractors and associate members (design professionals and consultants) can be searched by the states in which they are licensed or authorized to do business.

There are also other search fields for contractors, but only the contractors who have gone through the third-party verification process will appear when you use the expanded search fields.

By initiating a search on this site, you are agreeing to the following terms:

The SWR Institute Searchable Directory and the materials and information contained herein are provided by the Sealant, Waterproofing & Restoration Institute ("SWR Institute") as an aid to enable design professionals, general contractors, facility/property managers, building owners, members and others (collectively the "End Users") to search for SWR Institute members and non-member contractors who have applied and become "Verified Contractors."

The "Verified Contractor" program offers a means for End Users to systematically and consistently identify and select contractors for sealant, waterproofing and restoration projects based on reliable, verified, and useful quantitative information. End Users acknowledge that to be included as a Verified Contractor, each contractor has previously submitted an application that contains a total of up to 35 attributes, grouped in eight categories. The categories include general company information, financial capacity/stability, project management/resources, personnel resources, track record/customer service, safety, quality control, and training. Of these 35 attributes, 24 are required for inclusion by the applicant into the Verified Contractor program. Eleven of these attributes are optional attributes and can be provided at the discretion of the contractor applicant. These optional attributes include items such as financial information that some applicants may choose not to submit. Of the 24 required attributes, 12 attributes will be verified for each applicant by an independent verification entity ("IVE") that has been retained by SWR Institute. Six of the attributes will always be verified by the IVE and six of the attributes will are randomly selected by the IVE. As a result, End Users specifically acknowledge that not all of the attributes are verified by the IVE.

SWR Institute, its members, employees and agents expressly disclaim any responsibility whatsoever for the accuracy of the material, terms, and information, discussed herein.
