First Steps in Waterproofing Your Basement

The first step in trying to remedy the problem is to figure out what type of problem you are dealing with and where the water, if any, is coming from.

Check for pools of water on the floor or damp spots on the wall.

Check the condition of the concrete and look for condensation on water pipes. Insulate water pipes.

Get a good basement ventilation system keep the windows in the basement closed on days when the relative humidity is higher than 40-45% outside.

Seal any cracks or crevices and use a sealer on the walls and floor to help reduce the effects of moisture entering from the porous masonry.

Make sure exterior downspouts are redirecting water away from the foundation of the house.

All of these steps will help alleviate minor water problems. If, however, the problem is more severe, you will need to contact a Vulcan waterproofing professional for more involved solutions.

Mold, Mildew, Dampness & Air Quality

Dampness and moisture are very common problems related to basement waterproofing.  Not all water and moisture problems come from the ground. A major source of mold, mildew and the resulting musty odors comes from moisture in the air that, because it is heavier, collects in the lowest part of the house where it starts to do its damage and feeds the growth of mold.

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.
