The History of Basement Waterproofing
“We’re not just in the basement waterproofing business… We invented it” is a fact.
Many years ago there was a need to store coal and wood to heat your house. This was done under the house, in the area that we now call the basement. Since hot air rises the heating plants worked better when placed below the area to be heated. However, basements were filthy, musty messes and it was important to keep that mess from rising into the house.
However, as things changed, the size of heating units shrunk, and electric heaters, furnaces, and boilers came to be. Because of this, basements could now be used to store things, and could even be converted to living areas, bedrooms, offices, and more.
As this change came to be, the founders of Vulcan were in the remodeling business and were often asked to convert a basement to a use-able room! This was easy to do, but after heavy rain there was water on the floors. Nobody cared when it was filled with coal and wood. However, they soon realized that there was a true need for a someone to specialize in keeping basements dry. This was when Vulcan Basement Waterproofing was born!
