Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Crestwood Gardens, NY
At this time, the founding fathers of Vulcan were in the home improvement business and were often called on to renovate this space and make it livable. The request was easy enough to accomplish but later, after heavy rains, there was water on the floor. This was something that no one noticed or cared about when it was filled with coal and ash. The first attempts to stop the water were done by trying to raise the ground around the walls that were leaking. After several renovations with the same results there came a realization that there was a genuine need for a business to specialize in keeping water out of basements. This was the birth of the basement waterproofing industry and Vulcan Basement Waterproofing, as we know it today.
The first attempts at keeping water out of basements were done assuming all the water came from the walls. Since we knew that raising the ground around the house didn’t always work, we tried digging up around the house and applying tar or pitch to the walls.
