Vulcan Basement Waterproofing

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 and when I was a child, after hard rains would hit and the ground was saturated, the back wall would leak and all I had to do back then was mop it up. My father eventually added a cement rim to the back window wells and that did help for a time. Well, fast forward through several years of the block neglecting that drainage area many new new owners, the problem was quite serious by the time I inherited the house. I even had drains added to the back window wells, which got clogged up and water would now actually flow across the basement floor after any substantial rains. I was fed up and eventually, reached out to Vulcan Basement Waterproofing. They put in piping for a sump pump around 3 of the walls - from the back, to the side, through to the front. Now, all that is required is to check the pump about once a year just to make sure it's working okay. I was very pleased with the service Vulcan Basement Waterproofing provided and the only complaint I even had was that I wasn't aware of all the rock dust that would arise when they busted up the basement flooring in order to add the piping. It was so much that it burned out an air filter we used. Vulcan Basement Waterproofing relieved years and years of flooding frustration and I completely recommend the company. When I asked them to do the work they even took the time to make sure I realized what I was asking them to do. They are knowledgeable, experienced, and very skilled.
