United Structural Systems of Illinois is a Chicago foundation repair and construction company which repairs, restabilizes, and builds foundations, waterproofs basements and foundations, and performs structural repairs to homes and businesses, such as straightening leaning chimneys and bracing sagging walls. Located in Hoffman Estates, IL, United Structural Systems of Illinois serves Chicago and its surrounding areas, including Barrington, Park Ridge, Arlington Heights, Crystal Lake, Elgin, and Bartlett. United Structural Systems was founded in 1995 performing foundation repair and waterproofing, and expanded to include residential and commercial structural repair services. This company is a member of the Foundation Engineers Network and the National Association of Waterproofing.

This repair company performs many services related to the maintenance and repair of structural integrity, including foundation repair, basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulating, interior and exterior drainage, sump pumping, mud jacking, crack and concrete repair, chimney repair, and vapor barriers. United Structural Systems of Illinois uses a patent pending steel bracketing system to girder the foundation of older buildings which are resting on debris-laden soil. This technique, which drills down to up to 200ft below the surface and embeds a steel bar in load-bearing rock levels of the soil, can be used on both new constructions and to support older load-bearing systems. United Structural Systems of Illinois also uses the latest techniques in repairing cracks in foundations, including epoxy injection, which prevents further degradation of older concrete foundations. The company provides free home inspections to determine what work is necessary to bring buildings up to code and ensure the safety of occupants.
