Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Shrub Oak, NY

When the foundation is built, exterior basement walls are usually encased in tar, membrane and polyethylene film. These barriers will eventually stretch, shrink, crack and admit water.

Water in the basement and basement moisture is a fact of life for the homeowner. And it’s a serious problem that doesn’t go away on its own.

Basement waterproofing benefits include:

  • Increased property values
  • Prevents loss of property value
  • Provides a healthier home environment
  • Warmer basement during cold winter months
  • Drier basement during humid summer months
  • Increased living space and safe storage space
  • Improved quality of life
  • No musty basement smell

French drains are underground water management and drainage systems developed and popularized by Henry French, a Concord, Massachusetts judge and farmer, and discussed in his 1859 book, Farm Drainage. Though his actual drainage system predates him by several centuries (the ancient Romans utilized a version), French drains continue to be one of the most efficient and widely used methods of redirecting water today.  Though they have undergone many improvements over the years, French drains continue to be one of the most efficient and widely used methods of redirecting water.

Generally, French drains are used today to protect the foundation of a house or other structure from ground or surface water. Good drainage is important to ensure that a home, particularly a basement, stays dry and free of mold. A wet basement and the associated groundwater accumulation can affect the structural integrity of a home, dramatically reduce the home’s value, and cause a number of health-related problems.
