How to Choose an Illinois Basement Waterproofing Company

Wet basements are not fun! Flooded basements are a homeowner’s nightmare. If you are suffering from constant worry about the health and safety of your basement, it’s time for a change. If you’ve tried DIY efforts to fix pooling water, cracks in your foundation, leaky basement windows, or high humidity, it’s time to find an experienced, professional waterproofer you can trust. A wet basement wastes valuable living space, damages building materials and stored possessions, pollutes the indoor air, risks the health of those living in the home, and puts your investment in your home at risk. That adds up to considerable risk.

1. Look for expertise, training, and experience.

When you choose a basement contractor in the Basement Systems network, you get a local company trained in and committed to the best waterproofing practices. Each contractor listed here is an expert in the diagnosis of sub-grade moisture problems as well as the design and installation of proper drainage, moisture and humidity control, and basement materials. Say good-bye to your wet basement with the best basement waterproofing in your neighborhood!

2. Demand high-quality basement waterproofing products.

These top Illinois contractors have exclusive access to Basement Systems’ award-winning waterproofing products. Basement Systems’ products have set the standard for dry basements since 1987. With access to 27 patented Basement Systems products, your local Basement Systems dealer can tailor the right solution to address your specific basement or crawl space problem. With solutions like the WaterGuard basement drainage system and the UltraSump industrial-strength sump pump, your basement can be ready for the next big rainstorm.

Other basement waterproofing products include high-performance self-draining basement dehumidifiers that also serve as air filters, basement wall and floor treatments, window wells, and basement window replacements. Browse the full line of basement waterproofing products.

Why do Illinois Basements Get Wet?

Some customers want to understand why they’re plagued with a leaky basement or humid, musty air in their basement. It helps to realize that Illinois has wonderful water resources, from the Mississippi River in the west, the Ohio and Wabash Rivers in the south, and the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. If you live near these bodies of water, the cycle of winter thaw and river runoff, along with the spring rainy season, may lead to water in your basement multiple times a year. In recent years, Lake Michigan water levels have been at their highest, putting homes in the greater Chicago area especially at risk.

But it doesn't take a once-in-a-decade flood or even a flash flood to ruin your basement. A sudden heavy thunderstorm can dump a lot of rain in a short time and if your basement windows are rusty or the ground is already saturated with water, then your basement is likely to get wet. There are also a number of reasons unrelated to precipitation that cause leaky basements, from plumbing failures to the grading of the land around your foundation. Whatever the reason for a wet basement or foundation, it always makes sense to diagnose the problem and find a solution that prevents further damage.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair Solutions

If you're dealing with a flooded or leaky basement right now, you don’t need to understand why your basement is wet. You just need a permanent fix. The waterproofing experts in the Basement Systems network have helped homeowners across the state of Illinois for decades, by identifying the source of leaks, flooding, groundwater seepage, and musty odors. With a range of waterproofing and moisture control solutions available through Basement Systems, your local dealer will install the right solution for your basement or crawl space.

    My husband and I have used your service since 2006. Mr. Hammer has an excellent personality and really knows his job. I am going to have the other side of the basement done but only if I can have him. Your company did another basement job in 2006 and we have been completely satisfied with that job and our annual expectations. Bill Hammer was very courteous and the cleanup was very satisfactory. You are fortunate to have Bill Hammer as your employee. I am going to be putting in a call to have the rest of the basement done in the same manner.

    I checked my basement for flooding and did not find a drop of water after having Badger Basement install drain tile and patch some cracks in my basement wall. The first thing I said was Thank you God, and then said I am so happy I had that drain tile put in last year by Badger Basement. I hated spending the money to have it fixed, however I knew I could not deal with mopping up water everytime it rained. I also did think that it probably wasn't going to make a whole lot of difference and there would still be some leakage. But fortunately, there was not even a drop! While I feel truly sorry for the people that suffered destruction in their homes, I am grateful to Badger Basement that I now have a dry basement. Thank you so much!!
