It’s the water you can’t see that could destroy your foundation! Pitch or tar made use of to water-proof exterior walls at the time of initial building and construction commonly deteriorate in as little as 3 to 5 years leaving the wall surfaces unprotected against the significant hydrostatic stress of a high water table, underground streams or veins.

An extra of water around footings could undermine them creating damaging settlement of the structure.

Concrete is made mostly of sand. Picture what will certainly take place to a block of sand in a swimming pool of water. The erosion of concrete occurs the same way, with time with the foundation slowly softening, then deteriorating up until it gives way, bringing water right into the cellar or even worse. This erosion could occur in block structures also faster because they are generally hollow to start with.

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.
