Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Great Neck Estates, NY

Since basements are below ground level, they are affected by what are called atmospheric conditions. These atmospheric conditions persist because of the basement proximity below ground level.

Normally you can tell if you have a damp basement, should water vapor or water pellets appear on the exposed face of your floors or walls. However, it is not unusual that a basement is damp but shows no signs of visible liquid water leakage. That’s why when a homeowner complains about dampness or moisture in their basement, it is directly related to humidity problems.

Basement dampness can cause mold growth which can be unhealthy and even toxic.

How To Check For Basement Water Damage

Leaking basements or basement water seepage is a condition that must be arrested as soon as possible, or you could eventually face huge bills for repairing or replacing foundations, walls and floors. What’s more, water in your basement poses health and electrical hazards. It needn’t happen if you stay alert.

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.
