Though not native to the area, Elk Grove Village was named after its elk herd that’s kept at the edge of Busse Woods. A municipality of Illinois, the village is one of the first municipalities in Illinois to ban public smoking. Located near Chicago, the village shares the same temperamental weather the Windy City has, that is, humid summers and cold winters, with thunderstorms common in spring and summer.
These weather changes can cause moisture problems in basements, and can even play a part in affecting a home’s structural integrity. Whether it’s from the weakening of the backfill or deterioration of posts due to moisture, foundations can crack, and when it does, it must be repaired immediately.
