Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Cove Neck, NY
It’s the water you can not see that can destroy your foundation! Pitch or tar utilized to waterproof outside walls at the time of initial construction typically wear away in just 3 to 5 years leaving the walls unprotected versus the remarkable hydrostatic stress of a high water table, below ground streams or capillaries.

An excess of water around footings might weaken them causing destructive negotiation of the structure.

Imagine just what will certainly occur to a block of sand in a swimming pool of water. The disintegration of concrete happens the very same way, over time with the foundation gradually softening, after that compromising till it gives way, bringing water right into the basement or worse.

When water has actually made it to the inside of the cellar via the walls and/or flooring, it could just worsen. So, as you could see, the water you see in the cellar is just a “Symptom”– not the problem.

Sooner or later, the majority of homeowner will certainly have to do some kind of basement waterproofing if they have any type of sub-soil location in their home.

French Drain Solutions

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.
