Getting Ready for the Winter Months with Waterproofing

Foundation Waterproofing Chicagoland

As Chicago area homeowners and business owners, don’t we all know how hard a Chicagoland Winter can be? Lake effect snow, blowing snow, melting snow. We see all of the above and more, including ice! All of these things can wreak havoc on our foundations. You need to be prepared with foundation waterproofing Chicagoland solutions from United Structural Systems.

A few smart things you can do as a homeowner is to prepare with a sump pump installation. When snow melts, it can melt quickly causing a build up of water around your foundation. This can cause a few different kinds of issues. It can cause water to back up into your basement or crawlspace, and it can put pressure on the walls of your foundation causing them to bow or lean.

Then you will need foundation repair including wall anchors to pull those bowing and leaning walls back into place. With a sump pump from USS, you can be sure that water will be pumped safely away from your foundation and basement. We can also install a battery backup pump. This way, if you have a power outage you will still be safe.
