Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Pelham Manor, NY
“We’re not just in the basement waterproofing business… We invented it” is not just a slogan, it is a Fact.
Decades ago, in cooler climates, there was a need to house large coal and wood fired heating plants. This was done in the space below the house, which we now call the basement. It was the smart place to put it because, as we know, hot air rises and the heating plants could be more efficient if placed below the space to be heated. It was also a filthy, dirty, dusty, ash-laden mess and keeping it out of the living area was important. In time the heating plants shrank and were replaced by much smaller electric, propane and gas fired units.
As a result, this large, dank cavity below the house could now be used to store things. In fact, the area that was once uninhabitable was eventually being considered as possible living space.
We use a specially formulated, proprietary epoxy, used on every application by our Professional Vulcan Stone Flooring installers… it is the secret to its beauty, performance and longevity. Carpeting, wood, tile, paint and vinyl can trap moisture, causing mold and mildew which promotes unhealthy air quality not only in your basement but throughout your entire home. Eventually the flooring will need to be replaced. However, our flooring allows moisture to continuously evaporate because of the Pressure Relief Vent evaporation openings that are naturally formed into the flooring during installation.
