Vulcan takes nothing for granted. We approach each job as a unique challenge which demands the most appropriate and cost-effective solution. We specialize in below-ground water problems and in our 65+ years we have dealt with just about every situation imaginable in a basement or crawlspace from occasional dampness or mold to several feet of water. Each situation presents its own challenges and requires a trained eye to determine the problem, the cause and the solution. We receive many testimonials which praise the ingenuity and versatility of Vulcan’s expertise.

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.

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.
