Basement Waterproofing Professionals
We are an A+ certified basement waterproofing contractor in Whiteside with the BBB. When you have water in your basement, it's going to lead to a lot of problems. Water in the basement can cause wooden materials, including support beams and floor joists to warp, rot, and decay. These materials are partially responsible for holding up the weight of your home; so it is important that these materials are strong and durable. What's more is that this moisture can lead to the growth of dangerous mold. Mold is a fungus that can make your home smell musty, and it can also lead to a variety of serious health problems for you and your family. Prevent these issues by calling us at the first sign of moisture.
We have a variety of waterproofing solutions that we can provide for Whiteside area homeowners. From installing sump pumps inside of the home, to installing an exterior waterproofing membrane on the outside of the foundation, we guarantee that we will get the moisture problem taken care of at the source so that you never again need to deal with leaks or flooding below your home.
On the inside of your basement, we can install sump pumps with battery backups, dehumidifiers, and drainage systems which will connect to the sumps. All of our waterproofing systems come with a lifetime warranty, so you can rest assured knowing that the products we install in your home are going to be effective at taking care of the problem for the long haul.
When it comes to taking care of moisture problems from outside of your home, we can install French drains, exterior waterproofing membranes, and we can also take care of poor yard drainage and grading problems which could be causing water to pool up next to your foundation walls or basement windows.

Foundation Repair Services
The foundation of your home is one of the most important features on the entire house. This is the reason why you will need to be sure you are working with an experienced and knowledgeable foundation repair contractor when you see wall cracks, sinking floors, bowing walls, etc. We are an A+ certified business with the BBB, and this means you can rest assured knowing that your home will be in good hands with us. Regardless of how minor or severe you think the foundation problem is, you still need to get it checked out immediately before it leads to even more damage to your home's structural integrity.
Indications of a Structural Problem:
- Windows and doors don't open or close as easily as they once did
- Cracks show up along window and door frames
- Interior and exterior cracks show up
- Certain spots on the first floor of the home feel un-level
- Obvious sinking on one or more sides of the home
- Leaning, bowed walls appear in the basement
- Cracks appear in the basement floor
Our Foundation Solutions
When it comes to taking care of structural problems, we have many different systems we can provide.
Excessive hydrostatic pressure in the earth can cause this common issue. The soil around your foundation swells up whenever it rains, or when there is melting snow on your lawn. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation walls. Eventually, it will cause them to lean or bow into the home. To take care of this issue, our team will be able to install special wall anchors, braces, and support systems to strengthen the wall and keep it properly supported.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.
This is another common structural problem seen on homes all over the region. To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. The weight of your home can be shifted off of the weakened foundation and onto the piers themselves.
Mold Testing and Removal Services
We have many years of experience handling mold removal in Whiteside area homes. Sadly, there are many people who don't fully understand the dangers of having this fungus growing in their homes. This is something you need to get rid of immediately because it can cause a variety of serious medical problems, including: asthma attacks, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and more. Also, this fungus has been known to make a home smell very musty and unwelcoming.
Causes of Mold Growth
This fungus needs three things to live, which are excessive humidity, water, and organic materials to feed off of. More times than not, these three "ingredients" are found inside of a basement or crawl space environment which aren't waterproofed or sealed. To take care of the problem, we can install waterproofing and encapsulation systems that will take care of the problem once and for all. Our team will also be sure that surfaces are properly cleaned off and bleached so that no mold residue remains.
