When the foundation is built, exterior basement walls are usually encased in tar, membrane and polyethylene film. These barriers will eventually stretch, shrink, crack and admit water.

Water in the basement and basement moisture is a fact of life for the homeowner. And it’s a serious problem that doesn’t go away on its own.

Basement waterproofing benefits include:

  • Increased property values
  • Prevents loss of property value
  • Provides a healthier home environment
  • Warmer basement during cold winter months
  • Drier basement during humid summer months
  • Increased living space and safe storage space
  • Improved quality of life
  • No musty basement smell

In the early 1960’s Vulcan Basement Waterproofing really started to get involved with what we know of today as the Pressure Relief System. Around 1965 the company decided that the best way to handle more serious basement water problems is thru this new pressure relieving philosophy. The idea was groundbreaking and on the cutting edge and really revolutionized the industry. In 1966 Vulcan Basement Waterproofing was given a patent on this cure and we called it the “Vulcan Pressure Relief System”. This approach of using the long term solution of relieving the water “pressure” to control basement water problems by the means of installing the pressure relief system has allowed us to put an end to most basement water problems.

A leaky, wet basement has always been and will continue to be a phenomenon that will afflict the majority of homes with basements throughout the United States. During the last 60 years, many companies have come and gone in the basement waterproofing industry. Most of these entities try to emulate the success of Vulcan Basement Waterproofing. Naturally they have attempted to copy our pressure relief system in their own way. However we are the only company that can truthfully advertise the fact that our method is the original one. In over 60 years of being in business, our patented pressure relief system is one of the many tools Vulcan Basement Waterproofing has discovered to help homeowners control a wet and leaky basement.

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing Company is the world’s oldest and most experienced basement waterproofing specialist, having been established in 1947 and basement waterproofing has been our only business for over 60 years.

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.
