Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Croton-on-Hudson, NY
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. That didn’t always work either. The next attempt was to try to patch existing cracks from the inside as well as the excavation from the outside. That didn’t always work either. The military had a substance they used to seal underground tanks and since we were the only company specializing in water in basements, they asked us to try it. It was a slurry solution that when applied around the basement walls at set intervals, was to expand and seal the wall to prevent water penetration. It seemed like the perfect solution to our customer’s biggest complaints… no digging, no damage to lawns, shrubs, driveways, etc. We developed a pressure pumping process and patented it. The solution was so well received that others approached us for permission to use the process as well. Soon there were over 80 franchises in the U.S., Canada and even England. When applied in perfect soil conditions the process seemed to work to keep the water from coming through the treated walls but it didn’t always work. In clay soil the substance expanded and cracked walls or pushed in blocks. In sandy soil the substance expanded away from the walls and did not seal out the water as expected. Even when the walls were sealed perfectly there was often water on the floor.
