Basement Waterproofing

Water can make its way into your home through basement walls, basement floors, window wells, and other areas that are improperly sealed.

Turn to USS of Illinois for basement waterproofing that will ensure your keepsakes - as well as your home’s foundation - stay protected from the destructive powers of water.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

No basement? Don’t neglect your crawl space, where dampness and humidity can build up and cause damage and musty odors in your home. In addition to basement waterproofing, we also offer crawl space encapsulation. Most crawl spaces are dirt or gravel floors that are easily penetrated by groundwater, leading to damaging crawl space moisture levels. Not only does the humidity lead to structural damage and wood rot, but it can also make your entire home less efficient because humid air is difficult to condition. The crawl space encapsulation process involves sealing the concrete walls and dirt floor of your crawl space with a vapor barrier, then installing a sump pump drainage system to direct groundwater out and away from your home. With crawl space encapsulation from the experts at USS Illinois, you’ll enjoy additional storage space, improved energy efficiency, and peace of mind!

Bowing Foundation Walls

Have you noticed a foundation wall that’s not quite straight anymore? If you see bowing, bulging, or leaning walls, call us to determine an efficient and permanent solution to secure the foundation of your home.

New Construction Helical Anchors and Helical Piers

Helical anchors provide a fast installation option with verifiable load capacity testing. They’re a tested and true method for stabilizing the foundation of existing structures as well as being a great option to install for new construction projects so you can be one step ahead on protecting the foundations of your new structure.

Additional Specialty Services

In addition to offering the highest quality foundation repair in Cook County, we offer concrete repair, chimney repair, vapor barriers, and many other services to make sure your home or property is stable and sealed against the elements.
