Vulcan Basement Waterproofing In Heathcote, NY

Basement waterproofing by Vulcan is a science and art that pioneered industry standards. Our methods set the pace with today’s complex world of building construction and protective maintenance. Our techniques are as effective for a one-family home as they are for a towering commercial building.

There are many high quality pumps out there to choose from. These variations of brands and styles are offered in many price ranges. Depending on the size of the house and the general amount of water that comes into the basement, a professional can recommend the proper size for your home. It is best not to oversize the sump pump as it will cycle on and off too frequently and will greatly shorten the pump’s life span.

Backup Sump Pump

Sump pumps generally run on electric power from your home, but for areas prone to power outages, some sump pumps also have a battery backup system in case the electricity goes out, which is somewhat likely given the circumstances of sump pump use, which is often during heavy rain and storm conditions. If the pump is electric, a backup power supply system is needed in case the primary power system fails. In this way, the backup can pump water out of the house for several hours even without power. A battery backup sump pump generally operates on one or two 12-volt-batteries.

A wet leaky basement had been an issue for us for many years... Since the basement waterproofing by Vulcan was done, not one drop of water has been found in the basement!

The crew, as expected, performed brilliantly! They were wonderful! They worked hard, were polite, neat, cleaned up after the job, and were totally professional. I would recommend your company to anyone who has ever had water in their basement.
