DIY Basement Waterproofing

A Free Do It Yourself Guide to Basement Waterproofing

Since we can’t be everywhere, we’d like to offer you our free basement waterproofing guide to help with the process. Even if you plan to call us rather than getting your hands dirty, this DIY guide will help you diagnose the problem in advance and give you an idea of the scope of work that needs to be done. It’s free!

Simply enter your best email above and we’ll email you the guide immediately… don’t wait, leaks don’t ever fix themselves! Like a cavity, if ignored it can only get worse. We’ll show you how to fix a cracked basement wall or floor and much more!

Even if you have lived in your house for several years, you may not be completely aware of the amount of moisture that penetrates the basement walls and floor. Even a relatively dry basement at times can admit or generate enough moisture to destroy materials. So the first step in remodeling a basement is to inspect it thoroughly for signs of water penetration or moisture. If you find any, you must then determine their cause and take appropriate corrective action.

How do you proceed?  Our free guide offers plenty of suggestions for DIY Waterproofing. We cover from diagnosis to the techniques we’ve found work the best in close to seventy years of waterproofing basements. Enter your name and best email above and we’ll email you the guide immediately… and if you feel after reading it that your best (and easiest) course of action would be to give us a call, we’re ready and waiting!

All too often families move to a new house and soon find dampness or water that wasn’t present prior to the purchase. Or, they immediately remodel the basement only to find that it becomes a wet mess with the first rain or thaw. There’s no use trying to make a basement livable unless you are certain that it presents no major moisture problems. If you plan to remodel, before you begin renovation make sure you don’t have a wet, leaking basement!

The crew was great. I was impressed with their professional manner, They were all neat, thorough and the job appears to be done very well. Thank You for a job well done.

Franklin, New York

I would like to commend Mike H. and his team on the diligent work they performed and great dedication they showed when installing our basement waterproofing system. They were professional and friendly in completing a very challenging job as it was raining heavily and they were working in water all day.

At first, we were concerned about the quality of the job with the men working under such adverse conditions and communicated this to the manager of Vulcan. However, Mike took the lead in making sure that the job was completed to our complete satisfaction. The job was tested immediately with all this rain and continues to pass with flying colors. We hope that you recognize the value of these fine employees.

Dear Vulcan Co.,
Your crew is to be commended! Despite difficult challenges from 100 temperatures and the solid rock obstructions below my basement floor, your crew did a marvelous job. They were very cordial and professional about their task and had a good time performing it. I’d like to personally thank them for saving my home from that dreaded high water table we have here in Hopewell Township.
Much thanks,

Cliff, Trenton, NJ

I would like thank your company for the great basement waterproofing job your men did in my home last month. I am so glad I chose Vulcan over the other companies. No pressure, no one insulting my intelligence by telling me my house was falling down and after all this rain we've had recently, no water in the basement. I will highly recommend you to any of my family and friends who have leaking basements.

Please accept this note of appreciation for my dry basement. It is raining hard outside right now. Had this been three months ago, I would have been concerned, but your pressure relief system has worked and I do not have water in the basement. I also liked that you followed up with me after installation. I would recommend Vulcan to anyone who has leaking basements.

Before we could finish our basement we needed to waterproof it to prevent leaking water from destroying the work we planned to do. Vulcan Waterproofing did an excellent job and I have no worries about our new basement bring ruined.
