The 19th largest city in the Midwest, and 112th in the country, Aurora in Illinois is located in the outer region of Greater Chicago. It’s known as the “City of Lights” due to it being one of the first cities to implement an all-electric street lighting system. Aurora is also home to landmark architectural structures by Frank Lloyd Wright, Bruce Goff, and George Grant Elmslie, among others.
While architectural marvels abound, a majority of residents live in normal homes. But whether your home is an architectural wonder or not, there’s one thing that plagues all homes – basement seepage.
Unless your basement has already been waterproofed, chances are you are one of many who experience damp and wet basements often. Especially given the climate of the area, hot summers, cold winters, and thunderstorms being common in spring and summer – basement seepage may be a year-long problem, not just seasonal.
For those who struggle to keep their basements dry and free from seepage, it can be very difficult to DIY your way out of it. For the kind of work needed to waterproof a basement, you’d need the help of a professional. One of the best professionals in the business is Perma-Seal.
