Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Lattingtown, NY
It’s the water you can’t see that can destroy your foundation! Pitch or tar made use of to waterproof outside walls at the time of initial building frequently wear away in just 3 to 5 years leaving the wall surfaces unprotected versus the remarkable hydrostatic stress of a high water table, below ground streams or veins.

An excess of water around grounds could threaten them causing damaging settlement of the structure.

Imagine just what will take place to a block of sand in a pool of water. The disintegration of concrete occurs the very same method, over time with the structure slowly softening, then compromising until it gives method, bringing water into the basement or even worse.

As soon as water has made it to the within the basement via the walls and/or flooring, it can just worsen. As you can see, the water you see in the basement is only a “Symptom”– not the problem.

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

French Drainpipe Systems

An additional commonly understood method is drawing away surface area water away from the foundation by the creation of a French drainpipe. It entails the laying of pipeline and also utilizes gravity to drain water from a high factor 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.
