Basement Waterproofing
For Homes In Chicagoland

Keep water out of your basement by installing a vapor barrier, drain tile system, and sump pump. 

Can You Spot These Signs Of A Wet Basement?

Water seepage can lead to a variety of problems, including,

Mold

When water sits inside your basement, mold can begin to grow on your walls or floors.

Efflorescence

This is when water seeps through your porous concrete, leaving behind white salt deposits.

Wood rot

If water soaks into the wooden joists supporting your first floor, the structural integrity of your home could be at risk.

Wet spots

Pay attention to any damp or wet spots on your basement walls or floors.

Leaking cracks

When water builds up outside your basement walls, it can try to make its way through any openings, such as cracks and unsealed windows.

Increased humidty

Sitting water can raise the humidity levels inside your basement, which can travel up through the rest of your home.

Pests

Small insects such as fruit flies love puddles of water and damp areas.

Musty smells

If you can smell something musty in your basement, it’s probably coming from damp or wet spots in your basement.

We Can Keep Water Out

With our basement waterproofing solutions, we can,

Collect & Channel Excess Groundwater

Excess groundwater in the soil outside or under your basement will find a way inside. A drain tile system collects and channels that moisture to a sump pit.

Prevent Moisture Seepage

When we install a vapor barrier along your walls, we can effectively prevent moisture from seeping through your concrete.

Eject Water Out Of Your Basement

Once water reaches a certain level in your sump pit, your sump pump activates and ejects it away from your basement and home.

WE GET IT.
Basement Waterpoofing Can Sound Like Too Much

You may think basements are destined to be damp. Not true! A dry basement is totally achievable with the right waterproofing solution. You can use it a living area or for storage. It all depends on what you want but the possibilities are endless once you waterproof it. 

“Real Seal installed interior drain tile in my 120+ year-old basement. I appreciated their transparency in pricing, their thoroughness and knowledge when estimating and planning out the project, and their communication. Jerry was quick to answer any questions that came up as I did some demo work to prepare before the crew got there. The crew did a great job, completed the project on time, and made sure to keep me updated at the end of each day. I'm very happy with the whole experience.”
