“Our reputation is built on a solid foundation.”

United Structural Systems of Illinois, Inc. was founded by Brian Donlea in 1979 as a basement waterproofing contractor. Over the next decade, the company grew and started servicing more and more customers. This is when it was discovered that more people were experiencing the need for structural foundation repair services.  

The structural division of USS was founded in 1990. It focused on every element of structural foundation repair but created dedicated divisions for repairs and waterproofing to stay true to the company’s original vision. 

From the very beginning, USS has been focused on providing customers with honest evaluations and permanent repairs that are cost-efficient. We have repaired and waterproofed thousands of structures since our doors opened.

Current USS Owner and President Rick Thomas purchased the company from Donlea in January 2018. He started with USS as a laborer in 1996 and worked his way up to being a Project Manager in 2002. Rick partnered with Brian in 2012 and became full Operations Manager. Today, Rick continues to uphold the company’s commitment to honesty and always putting the client’s interests first. 

The staff at USS is eager to discuss your foundation problems and solutions. Call our office to learn more.
