How Vulcan Can Solve Wet Basement Problems

By: Matthew Verville

Whether your basement is in deep crisis or seems free and clear, invite in a Vulcan specialist. An expert inspection before investing in basement remodeling is good preventive medicine. And, it provides you the assurance that you will have a dry basement long after the remodeling is completed and the time and money spent.

We respond promptly and at your convenience; Vulcan is on call year-round to answer your waterproofing needs. The Vulcan professional will check every inch of your basement. All significant findings will then be discussed in detail. You will be clearly informed of the causes behind all signs of water damage. You will also learn the implications of minor danger signs that normally escape the untrained eye. The outside of your home will also be checked.

Your Vulcan expert will explore for defects in your below-ground foundation walls – for cracks and crevices that admit subsurface water causing a wet basement.

Any of the following conditions could promote decay that might, in time, force you to replace foundation walls and floors:

  • Poor soil conditions around walls, caused by construction workers who backfilled the surrounding area with soil containing broken concrete or timber. The result: pockets filled with water that exert pressure against walls.
  • Hydrostatic effects from water buildup whose constant pressure eventually leads to water penetration.
  • Capillarity within porous walls and floors that absorb water from the surrounding soil.
  • High water table, resulting from underground water which rises with rain, snow or the tides.
  • Below-grade cracks and voids in building foundations and walls expose your home to yet another peril. They are avenues for invading armies of termites and insects on the attack.

Your free Vulcan Waterproofing survey and analysis offers you an opportunity to find exactly how damaging the water along your foundation has become. You may confidently base your decision on the detailed estimate we leave in your hands.

In choosing Vulcan, you’ll find our techniques remarkably quick and efficient. We control water seepage completely – at the source – without excavating or injuring your plantings, lawn, sidewalk or driveway.

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing company is one of the best I have worked with in a long time. They showed up on time and delivered above and beyond what they were asked. They took care of my wet basement problem. I was impressed with the professionalism of the team of workers. The process was easy and the work was superb!

I just wanted to take this time to thank you for your help resolving my wet basement problem after hurricane Floyd. As you know, I had contractors finishing my basement and the flood put a halt to the construction.
I called at least a dozen other waterproofing contractors the day after my basement filled with water; all of them took my information and told me to wait for a call back. No one called back. With one call, your company made an appointment to see me and your crew completed its work 2 days after our meeting.
The work to my basement was great, but what impressed me the most was your company’s customer service. Feel free to share my name and experience with your company with others.

A team of Vulcan workers, headed by Eddie and Joe, arrived to waterproof our basement. In a matter of hours the job was completed. The men worked very quickly. I would like to also comment on their courteous attitude, their sense of humor, and their diligence in cleaning up. Lastly I would like to voice my appreciation for the patience of Mike Laide in responding to our multiple telephone inquiries before the job even began. Now, even during torrential rains, we can leave the house without any worries of a wet basement.
You definitely have our recommendation for future customers.
