Jesse Trebil and his wife Lori started Trebil Foundation Systems nearly 20 years ago. From it modest beginnings Trebil Foundation Systems has developed into what has become one of the most respected basement waterproofing and foundation repair companies in the industry today.
Seeing a need for better and safer products Jesse developed SafeBasementsTM. SafeBasementsTM is a foundation repair and waterproofing product manufacturer. These products are sold only to qualified contractors that adhere to the same quality standard that has made Trebil Foundation Systems a leader in both customer satisfaction and product reliability
SafeBasementsTM is a family owned and operated business. We have been waterproofing basements since the early 70’s. We have installed drain tile and tube systems for the bulk of those years. We realized the need for something better and designed the SafeBasementsTM Waterproofing System.
After researching all the products on the market, we found that most national waterproofing company’s products did not solve the main concerns we had. We feel a strong responsibility to supply our customers with the very best. That is our duty as professionals. It appears the industry as a whole has gone to ease of installation, rather than quality, and then backed with very impressive marketing campaigns. The customer loses in the end and the contractor’s reputation is jeopardized.
We feel it is very important to lower the water table below the floor and dry the subsoil, giving the homeowner a dry floor and dry air in the basement. Most companies fail to dry the basement properly and resort to up selling an expensive dehumidifier (studies at the University of Minnesota state dehumidifiers only make the problem worse).
We as an industry cannot continue to turn a blind eye to the radon issue. I had a professor tell me that, “all waterproofing contractors are criminals!” He stated “You guys save the structure from water and kill the people inside with radon”. We do not want to be part of that problem! At SafeBasementsTM we are addressing the issues other waterproofing companies ignore. Our line of products is far superior to the competitors and is designed to give customers more than they expect.
Our dealers can be confident they will be selling the very best, because our system is implementing cutting edge technology, designed using our nearly 40 years of experience, while consulting with engineers and professors that study these issues. That is exciting, I never want to sell the number 2 or 3 product. As a business owner I feel a responsibility to my customers and my employees to have only the best.
By becoming one of our dealers, our promise to you is to supply you with training, marketing materials, the highest quality waterproofing products, ongoing research and an open mind that will listen to our dealers looking for ideas that can make our network the most successful in the industry!
