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!

Today, we are the most experienced and respected basement waterproofing company in the nation…

Dear Vulcan Basement Waterproofing,
I need to tell you about my experience with your company. Your estimator was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions and knew exactly what I needed. The crew did an excellent job, ran like a well-oiled machine and were in and out in five hours... "INCREDIBLE". The job turned out much better than I expected and I will absolutely recommend your company to anyone who has wet basement problems and already have.

First and foremost let me tell you how pleased I am with the basement waterproofing work you did for me at my home in West Islip. In the twenty years we have lived here we have never had a dry basement. You have performed a miracle and my wife and I are very grateful for your excellent work. I am very happy that I chose Vulcan and am pleased to have met the good people that you employ.
