Job Stories From Downers Grove, IL
Flooded Basement in Downers Grove, Illinois.

This particular client had finished his basement with the Total Basement Finishing Wall Systems about 6 months ago because his basement kept flooding and ruining his furniture, trim, carpet, and doors. They had a water proofing company come in to cut the walls up and install a drain tile system. They left him high and dry (pun intended), installed the system and left the job site with exposed walls. Through an architect friend of Bob's, this client was told to call our company.

Bob went out to look at his problem and came up with the perfect solution – the TBF wall restoration, thermal dry flooring, and Sanidry. After talking with the client, he decided that he only wanted to do the fiberglass installation and drywall back and to leave the concrete floor. Bob politely explained that after being in business for over 30 years, he didn't feel comfortable putting inferior products into his client's home knowing that they will cause more harm than good. After explaining further on how our products work, the owner agreed to go with Bob's recommendation. Prior to the job they had completed, they never used that space because of the dampness and the foul smell. With the new Sanidry and other products, they were now using the basement on a daily basis.

They were very happy clients until six months later, they left their garden hose outside during the winter season and with the sub zero temperatures, the hose froze. The climate started to warm up and inevitably the hose burst, cracked and the water ran freely for a couple of days unnoticed. They called Norway Built to see if there was anything we could think of as to why their basement would flood. With the snow melt off, rain, and the hose running for two days, Bob found that the water built up on the foundation had found a way in from old well piping that was capped off but leaking around the two pipes. The crew vacuumed and mopping up the water, and the next day when they were able to get back in, they cut out the pipes, patched the wall with hydraulic cement and patched the holes. They used Epoxy over the patches and it solved the problem. With all that, I asked the home owner if they were happy with their decision to put in TBF basement products.  They both hugged me and told me it was the best thing they ever did for their house and wallets!

Bathroom remodel in Downers Grove, Illinois

This client came to us looking to have his garage remodeled, while that is no longer a service we are offering Bob Ligmanowski went to go look at the space for him as he came onto Norway Built as a referral. Into the meeting, Bob politely explained that this wasn't a service we offered but provided lots of ideas of what he would be able to do with the space, and referred him to a reputable garage remodeler, Blue Sky Builders. Then, they began talking about things that Bob is currently working on in the industry, which brought them to the first floor bathroom in one of the first homes built in Downers Grove, Illinois. In need of a facelift, they started to bounce around ideas as to what they could do with the space.

The client decided to replace the existing tub, with a walk-in calcutta marble shower. A huge concern for this client was making the changes fit in with the character of the home. They replaced an old window with custom trim and replacement glass that respected the aesthetic of the older home. They were able to mimick new woodwork in the bathroom that matched the existing home. They installed a old fashion charm white tile with tones of grey and black. 

After the project the client reports back that their grandchildren, which previously were challenge to get into the shower, and now are timed to get out of the shower sooner. They were able to make better use of the space and naturally light up the bath.
