Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Ridgeway, NY
Our chemists and engineers created cements and epoxies to seal the area where the wall and floor meet but it didn’t always work. Next, channels were created on the floor along the walls to direct the water to a collection pit or dry well. When it was realized that a dry well was not the solution, pumps were placed in the wells to remove the water that was directed there. Floors and walls continued to crack and leak. It was determined that the problem was not just water it was water “pressure”. We decided to try cutting and trenching the floor next to the wall to give the water a place to run and not exert pressure on the floor. Now we were on to something. From this point we continued to improve and polish the concepts of relieving the pressure from the foundation.
Our vast experience and knowledge has enabled us to design the most efficient and effective redirection of water through the use of the proper size, type and depth of pipes and the proper size, type and placement of stone to obtain maximum drainage. As we progressed we gained other valuable knowledge that we have used to develop our state-of-the-art installation techniques and customer service practices that have produced over 500,000 installations in the past 60+ years.
