Why Choose Vulcan Basement Waterproofing
While the uninsured, unlicensed contractor may charge a lower (or higher) price, they aren’t committed enough to their business to invest in it properly and, as a result, aren’t likely to be motivated to do a good job. If they don’t take their business seriously enough to be licensed or insured and employ their own people, they may not intend to be around very long — which is not a good prospect if anything should go wrong down the road.
Many of our employees have been with us for over 20 years, which gives us the ability to say we have “Hundreds of Years Experience” in basement waterproofing.
While every project is different, one of our proven interior basement waterproofing techniques used to relieve hydrostatic pressure from below the floor is our patented pressure relief system which eliminates the need for costly and dangerous excavation around the outside of your home.
The floor is opened next to the outside walls, and drain pipe is installed and surrounded by gravel. The pipe is usually connected to a sump pump, which discharges the water out of the basement. The floor is then closed back up again and leveled to the existing cement.
This method controls the water level under your home and doesn’t allow it to rise up and break through your foundation. In short, it provides relief from hydrostatic pressure on your foundation and a dry basement in the future.
