Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Bayville, NY
It’s the water you can’t see that could damage your structure! Pitch or tar used to water resistant outside walls at the time of initial building and construction often weaken in just 3 to 5 years leaving the walls unprotected against the tremendous hydrostatic stress of a high water table, below ground streams or veins.

An extra of water around grounds could weaken them triggering destructive settlement of the structure.

Concrete is made mostly of sand. Visualize just what will certainly happen to a block of sand in a swimming pool of water. The erosion of concrete happens similarly, gradually with the foundation slowly softening, then compromising up until it paves the way, bringing water right into the basement or worse. This erosion could take place in block structures even much faster since they are typically hollow to start with.

When water has actually made it to the inside of the cellar via the wall surfaces and/or flooring, it could only become worse. So, as you could see, the water you see in the cellar is only a ” Signs and symptom”– not the trouble.

Sooner or later, most of property owner will need to do some kind of basement waterproofing if they have any sub-soil area in their house.

French Drain Solutions

Another typically known technique is diverting surface area water away from the foundation by the production of a French drain. It involves the laying of pipe and also utilizes gravity to drain water from a high point to a reduced point some distance away.

This was the second visit by Vulcan – the service technicians were very professional and did an amazing job – reviewed the project with me and explained what they were going to do and why they needed to do it – then they started right in and did the work. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking to get a water issue resolved in their basement.

Great service, very knowledgable staff and hard working crew! Install went well: 160 linear feet of underdrain pipe and crushed stone with 2 sump pits (one pit with 1 pump and the other upper pit with 2 pumps). Pumps run fine when needed. We now have a dry finished basement with peace of mind. Thanks Vulcan, great job!

Our basement flooded several times and had water level of up to 4 feet in one corner of the house. Vulcan assessed the situation and added french drains and new sump pump. They were very professional and not too costly. We haven’t had any issues since, this was in early 2000s.
