Part of the Chicago Metropolitan Area, Highland Park is a suburban municipality in Illinois with a population just shy of 30,000. It’s also home to several landmark structures by notable architects, including the Willits House by Frank Lloyd Wright.
But not all homes are blessed to be designed by legends, and many Highland Park homes tend to suffer from wet basements as a result either of bad planning, bad luck, or just regular wear and tear.
A wet basement can cause many issues that range from the trivial to the serious. From damaged appliances and electronics, to weakening foundations, to health risks posed by the growth of mold and mildew, wet basements never do any good to any home and if your home suffers from this kind of problem, it’s best to deal with it as soon as possible by sealing it.
If your basement is more wet than dry, even in the summer months, call a Perma-Seal professional right away.
