    Leaky Basement In La Valle Vacation Home

    This Illinois customer discovered water in his vacation home basement in La Valle, WI.  He acted quickly and had us out to provide him with a free estimate.  It didn't take long for him to decide that he wanted us to waterproof his basement.  We did full perimeter water control along with a SuperSump pumping system and an UltraSump Battery Backup.  Now he can rest easy knowing that while away, his vacation home is protected.
