THE PROGRESSION

UTECH Basement Waterproofing was founded in 1967 by Roger Utech after he returned to Western New York from 4 years of active duty in the United States Air Force. Roger was a committed, disciplined man with a solid background in the military, who began his entrepreneurial venture when he was asked to fix a poured concrete wall crack leak for a friend. His positive personality, dedication and commitment, along with his successful solution to develop a functional innovation are the foundation of UTECH Basement Waterproofing.

 

Roger, with the help of his wife Anita and his supportive family, grew the business over several years, developing various techniques and methods to solve a variety of water and foundation problems years before there was a recognized, established waterproofing industry. The fundamental ideology and willingness to research, develop, engineer and innovate practical, sustainable and affordable solutions through the modernization and evolution of technology, has ensured the successful operation, growth and customer confidence in the UTECH Basement Waterproofing brand. Today, the company takes great pride in providing a guaranteed quality service to over 25,000 customers and counting in the Buffalo region.

 

Roger's values, beliefs and conscience are now the essence that make up the values and etiquette of the company.


2 Generations of experience

In 1996, Mark Utech, Roger's son became a partner in the business. The commitment, dedication and interest in the business with the required skill and knowledge earned Mark the ownership interest in the company. Mark's exposure in the industry and insights to waterproofing solutions through the numerous years spent watching and learning from his father, allowed him to understand the technicality involved in this construction sector.


An alumni of the State University of New York at Buffalo, Mark successfully carried through Roger's ideals and values in prioritizing quality and service. His ability to work through problems and engineer innovative ideas through the fundamentals developed in college ensured better, faster and more efficient technological advancements in the solution methods which ensured customers a better, more sustainable solution at an affordable cost. Mark's efforts of working full-time on the business with Roger while attending college, allowed him to develop the much needed entrepreneurial skills, interpersonal skills, business etiquette, financial knowledge and comprehensive administration management criteria needed to run, develop and grow the UTECH Basement Waterproofing brand.


In 2008, Mark bought out Roger's interest in the company becoming President and owner of UTECH Basement Waterproofing.Together with the help of several dedicated employees and a focus on exceptional customer service, the company has continued to grow year after year.
