Vulcan Basement Waterproofing of New York

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing is keeping New York's basements dry!

Vulcan Basement Waterproofing of Flushing, Inc. started waterproofing basements in the New York Metropolitan area in 1959. When we first arrived on the scene, there was no company listed in the yellow pages for basement waterproofing; in fact, there was no listing whatsoever in the Yellow Pages for "basement waterproofing".

Thankfully for the people of metropolitan New York, Vulcan was able to change that!

In the early and mid 1960 we operated out of a store front on Parsons Blvd in Jamaica, Queens. The demand for our basement waterproofing services began to steadily increase, as more and more people began to realize the importance of having a dry basement and what it did for the resale value of their homes.

During our early years of waterproofing basements, Vulcan Basement Waterproofing was the first company to install French drains on a regular basis. The need for this became more apparent as our experience waterproofing of homes in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Queens, Bronx, Staten Island and Connecticut proved that you could not stop water.

We concluded that in order to completely guarantee basement repairs we would need to deal with all or any kind of seepage by taking the pressure off the foundation. As a result, French drains became a big part of our business, but more importantly inspired us to develop our patented method, called "The Vulcan Pressure Relief System".

Once we discovered this revolutionary way to do basement waterproofing, Vulcan Basement Waterproofing expanded its operation to other areas on the East coast such as: Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, and much of New England.

In 1969, Vulcan Basement Waterproofing moved its regional headquarters taking up an entire block on 76-28 Parsons Blvd . The relocation allowed Vulcan Basement Waterproofing of New York to fulfill the basement waterproofing demands of its ever increasing customer base.

We are now celebrating our 50th year in the same location, and can proudly say that we have waterproofed over 20,000 homes in the New York Metropolitan area.
