Charles C. Cordill, a planter and politician who lived in Waterproof, was a Louisiana state senator from 1884 to 1912. Miss Elizabeth "Miss Ethel" Broussard, the daughter of Charles and his wife Elizabeth, was born in Waterloo.
Gibbs signed a $351,000 contract with the impregnation company to build the Iberville Building on May 1, 1912, in connection with the waterproofing work. Gibbs' third-party claims against Water Proofing sought damages for problems with water leaks caused by WaterProofing, according to Gibbs, because of work on the project and other reasons.
After the work was completed, Hurricane Betsy swept through New Orleans on May 1, 1912, damaging the building. At the same time, Gibbs' third-party claims against Water Proofing and the Iberville Building Company received similar applications from several other buildings in the city and other companies.
Today's Waterproof was able to move out three times to escape the floods, but not without causing significant damage. Severe basement flooding in Louisiana can cause serious damage to buildings such as the New Orleans Water Proofing Building.
The two integral systems that give the concrete its waterproof quality are hydrophilic, which replaces water in the concrete with crystals, and hyphobic, which uses fatty acids to block the pores of the concrete to prevent water from flowing. No evidence of foundation damage was found in Louisiana, but creep spaces and creep walls in New Orleans were severely damaged.
