Vulcan Waterproofing of Pennsylvania

For over 65 years, the name “Vulcan Basement Waterproofing” has been known for quality basement waterproofing at affordable prices.

We specialize in only one thing — Basement Waterproofing.

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing of Pennsylvania’s headquarters is located in NE Philadelphia and has been serving homeowners and businesses in South Eastern Pennsylvania, South Jersey, Delaware, and throughout the Delaware Valley and Lehigh Valley since 1976.

We are wholly owned and operated, and do not subcontract any of our work. We carry general liability and workman’s compensation insurance with higher limits than required by law for your protection.

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.

Vulcan Waterproofing did my basement waterproofing at my home in Bethlehem PA. Everything went exactly as described and everybody was great. The management at Vulcan needs to know what a great job their employees did and how nicely they treated our home and our family when they did the work. You have a great team. Thanks for a job well done. Sincerely,

G. Carswell - Bethlehem, PA

Please be advised that your company waterproofed our basement in Phila PA. Your men were here on time, went right to work and were very thorough in their work. They explained the working of the system and said it should take care of all of our problems from now on and it did. It works like they said it would and you have made two people very happy, as we have endured this basement water problem for years.

Very Truly Yours, Geoffrey B. Philadelphia, PA
