Every homeowner and business owner wants their structure to be stable, functional, and in good repair. You want a dry basement, straight walls, structural integrity, and a building that visitors feel safe in.

Poor weather conditions and rainwater can cause basement leaks or water damage, and you may need a foundation repair company that can get the job done right the first time with long-lasting results.

Basement Waterproofing

Water can make its way into your home through basement walls, basement floors, window wells, and other areas that are improperly sealed. Basement flooding is not uncommon, but it is serious, especially if not quickly addressed. When it comes to a wet basement, moisture problems can lead to a long list of health hazards and structural damage, including dry rot, mold and mildew growth, and foundation wall cracks. At United Structural Systems of Illinois, our team is dedicated to providing the basement waterproofing solutions you need to prevent water damage year-round. From sump pump installation to interior drain tile systems, we offer a variety of basement waterproofing options to ensure your peace of mind. Our experts will determine what the best solution is for you, whether that’s epoxy injection foundation crack repair, a french drain system, an exterior drain tile system, sump pit and pump installation, or a variety of other options that will create a watertight seal for your basement. If you’ve experienced a basement flood, you know the frustration or even anguish that can come from having precious memories ruined in the water. 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. It could be dangerous to your family to be living in a home with leaning walls. Make sure you keep your family safe by getting bowed walls fixed right away.

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 foundation of your new structure.

Additional Specialty Services

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