It’s the water you cannot see that can destroy your foundation! Pitch or tar made use of to water resistant outside walls at the time of initial construction usually deteriorate in just 3 to 5 years leaving the walls unprotected against the tremendous hydrostatic pressure of a high water table, underground streams or capillaries.

An extra of water around footings could undermine them creating damaging settlement of the foundation.

Envision what will happen to a block of sand in a swimming pool of water. The disintegration of concrete happens the exact same way, over time with the structure slowly softening, then damaging up until it offers method, bringing water right into the cellar or worse.

When water has actually made it to the inside of the cellar with the wall surfaces and/or floor, it can only worsen. As you can see, the water you see in the basement is only a ” Sign”– not the issue.

One way or another, the majority of property owner will have to do some form of basement waterproofing if they have any type of sub-soil location in their residence.

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.
