Homeowner Corey has lived in his home or the last ten years. In the last two years, he has noticed that he has more and more water in his basement. He eare that the water was causing damage to his home and also was putting his home at risk for mold. He had a full perimeter waterproofing system installed in his home along with a TripleSafe sump pump. The waterproofing system is a WaterGuard system that is placed around the perimeter of the home. WaterGusrd works like a channeling system and guides the water out of the home. The TripleSafe sump pump is a three pump system that comes with a battery back up and WaterWatch alarm. The battery back up is used in case of power loss and the WaterWatch alarm will sound in the case that the pump takes on to much water.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Gilson, IL

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

Our Products Include :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors
Unlike the average Gilson contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

125 year old foundation that has leaky walls. Approx. basement size 2000 sq. feet. Has radon reduction system installed.
Vicinity of in Gilson
We have a crack in our poured concrete wall foundation in our basement that is leaking when it rains. We have tried a few different products to seal it up and it works for a while. We have also build up the dirt on the outside to make sure water runs away from the foundation, but it is still leaking.
