Extremely satisfied!

We had our basement waterproofed by Vulcan sometime before hurricane Sandy hit. It proved to be a quality job!! The sump pump kicked in and not a drop of water! After years of dealing with soggy carpets and ruined items, we have never had a water issue again. We... Read More

Great Service and Great Work!

I had a very specific reason for reaching out to Vulcan Basement Waterproofing and it actually took several years to develop. The home they worked on was in Queens and it was a brick house sitting in the middle of the block. There was a cement drainage area added... Read More

The system works. Nice job.

This past winter Vulcan cam in and put a french drain and sump pump system in my basement. 2 days construction, and more than $10,000 later (the agreed price), it was done. When the snows came and melted later in January, I could hear that sump pump firing off... Read More

Will not recommend this company

While the people were nice they did a lazy job. I had my French drain placed back in 2013. I am very upset that they took the easy way out and put the drain into my stack pipe in the front and now I can't put any closet doors back up because the pipe is in the way.... Read More

Terrible experience

We had water coming into our basement at a new home. We did not know where the water was coming from, so we called Vulcan Basement Waterproofing and told the company we need help. Steve came out and we showed him the pictures of flooding and damage. He said the land... Read More

Did not like the way the company dealt with things!

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing was very expensive! I had no idea that when they were doing the stuff in the basement, that cost thousands of dollars, part of it would get chopped away. I thought they were going to fill it in, instead it was all chopped around and... Read More

Best Crew I've Ever Had in My Home

The Vulcan crew, led by Derek, arrived exactly on time, did a beautiful job efficiently and quickly and left the basement cleaner than they found it. I had some questions, which were answered thoughtfully, politely and patiently. I have never encountered such... Read More

I hope it works because the installation was unpleasant...

Vulcan said they would install the system without doing certain damage, and in fact, they did more damage than they projected. They were supposed to give me a credit for the damage they did, but it never happened. I would be careful about how much dust and... Read More
