Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In  Town of Oyster Bay, 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.

How do you proceed?  Our free guide offers plenty of suggestions for DIY Waterproofing. We cover from diagnosis to the techniques we’ve found work the best in close to seventy years of waterproofing basements.

All too often families move to a new house and soon find dampness or water that wasn’t present prior to the purchase. Or, they immediately remodel the basement only to find that it becomes a wet mess with the first rain or thaw. There’s no use trying to make a basement livable unless you are certain that it presents no major moisture problems. If you plan to remodel, before you begin renovation make sure you don’t have a wet, leaking basement!

Testimonials

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.
