It’s the water you can’t see that could destroy your foundation! Pitch or tar made use of to waterproof exterior wall surfaces at the time of original building and construction often degrade in as low as 3 to 5 years leaving the walls unprotected versus the tremendous hydrostatic stress of a high water table, below ground streams or capillaries.

An extra of water around footings might threaten them triggering damaging settlement of the structure.

Concrete is made mostly of sand. Picture exactly what will take place to a block of sand in a swimming pool of water. The erosion of concrete occurs the same way, over time with the foundation gradually softening, after that weakening till it paves the way, bringing water right into the basement or even worse. This disintegration can take place in block foundations also much faster since they are typically hollow to begin 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.
