Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the flood control you installed. Since the flood control system was installed we have not had any problem with sewer backup. Having the flood control system has allowed us to finish our basement with complete peace of mind.

Pleased with product and service Xpert Flood Control and Seepage Inc. did a good job. My entire basement was flooded, and they were able to fix the problem right away. I haven’t had any flooding since them.
Fast, good service.
I have been using Xpert Flood Control and Seepage Inc. for a while now. I have been friends with
Patrick since grade school, and I would recommend him to anybody. In fact, I already have
recommended him to many people. His service works. He gets the job done, and he gets it done fast.
Xpert Flood Control and Seepage Inc has been wonderful! We used to flood, and we didn’t know what to do. I don’t remember how, but we ended up calling Xpert. They put in a flood control system, and we’ve been flood free ever since! It’s been over 25 years! We don’t even have to call and ask for service. They come out every month and make sure things are working well. They have wonderful workers! I have recommended them to many people already who also used them and were very satisfied. They helped us tremendously with a horrible situation. I can’t say anything bad about them!
Xpert Flood Control and Seepage put in the flood control system and it did exactly what it was
supposed to do. We had experienced floods for several years and the system stopped them immediately. Xpert will also come to you right on the spot. In fact, I remember the owner came out on a Sunday after we called them the first time. Xpert really is terrific, as far as I’m concerned.
Delivered As Promised.
Prior to the Xpert Flood Control system, my basement had taken back up rain water on multiple
occasions. Once the system was installed, I have not received any back up sewage from the basement floor drain, I have recommended to my neighbors the same Xpert system, and they to have also maintained a dry basement since their installment of the system.
A great experience.
We have had good experiences with Xpert Flood control and Seepage Inc. They come every year and spend about two hours here, cleaning and doing a thorough job. I would recommend them to others.
Excellent! Fantastic employees and great service.
When I called Xpert Flood Control and Seepage we were having some very heavy rain and they were able to set up an appointment to come out immediately. Angelica came out and she was fantastic! She provided us with all of our options and helped us select the best one for us and we set up an appointment for installation. They installed a system in the front yard with a double check valve that prevents sewage from the city from backing up into the house. They also installed pumps that force water from storms out. So far there hasn’t been any issues with the system. There’s been some heavy rains and I’ve been high and dry. They’re actually coming out tomorrow for an annual check up just to make sure everything is working properly. Xpert Flood Control and Seepage is an excellent company with fantastic employees that takes the time and effort to listen to your concerns and your budget to help you select the best plan. They even came back to re-sod the parts of the lawn that got worn out when they were installing the system. I will continue to use their services and absolutely recommend them.
“These guys carne out on an emergency call to my home and unclogged our drain tile, They used a camera to find the clog, fixed a cracked pipe and all for a super low cost to me,”
When we moved into our house 6 years ago, one of the reasons we bought was that the house already had a flood control system, which was installed a few years earlier by Xpert. Over the past 6 years, there have been some of the biggest rain storms on record, including the ones this summer. While several of our neighbors have repeatedly had their basements flood, we have not had any flooding issues, Three of them have now called Xpert! Thanks, Xpert!
Dear Mr. Martin:
I have sent this letter to the people listed under cc.
Thank you for your good work.
I am writing this letter to you to recommend:
Mr. Patrick Martin, President
Xpert Flood Control Company
3538 W. Montrose
Chicago, II 60618
He installed the flood control system in my front lawn three years ago. His workers were
very careful to maintain the lawn by saving the turf and reinstalling it when they were
finished. They dug the hole by hand and made it no larger than what was needed. He
and his workers treated me with courtesy and respect and answered all the questions I
asked. His price was no more than the other three estimates I received and the
workmanship was of the highest quality.
I have not written until this time because, after the installation, we did not have a major
rainfall until this year and I did not know if the system worked. Now I feel very secure in
recommending the company for the quality of their work, their professionalism, and for a
system that passed the test!
To whom it may concern:
This is a few lines to say how happy I am to have the
Xpert Flood Control System. until I had it installed back
in March of 1984, I was always unhappy and worried when we
were to have a big storm etc .
I got tired of the worry and hassles so I had it installed
and it was one of the best moves I’ve ever made. Now I
don’t worry. I have it serviced once a year and Whitey is
the greatest. If there are any needs or any repairs he lets
me know and we take care of it. Thanks for the many years
of peace and happiness.
You folks completed our Flood Control System over a year ago·
around the middle of March, 2008.
Although the Job looked extremely well don’t I have refrained
from writing this letter until we had our next deluge the type
which usually only comes about once every two years.
As I write this letter we are in the middle of the type of deluge
Which always brought a great deal of seepage in our apartment,
the lower floor of which, as you know, is below grade.
I am most pleased to tell you that our apartment is completely
dry, there Is no water backup In any room, including the
bathrooms, and not even any “gurgling” In our toilets.
Consequently, It is my pleasure to tell you that I can now highly
recommend the Xpert Flood Control system to anyone plagued with plagued with backup, as we were for the 12 years prior to having it Installed.
Thank you for a magnificent job. We consider the cost to
probably be the best money we ever spent.

Attention: Patrick Martin, Angelica and Miguel
Dear Mr. Martin:
I just wanted to tell you thank you for the great job your company did in installing
the flood control at my home at Everell, Chicago, IL 60631. I am so
happy I chose your company and after having Angelica came out to my home and
she explained everything to me I was convinced I wanted to use your company
and I cancelled a contract with another company that I had signed with that
morning. Your company was highly recommended to me by other neighbors and
after meeting Angelica I felt that everything would be done properly and she did a great job she did in getting everything set up for me in a timely manner.
As for when the work started your guys were great from Eric the electrician and
to Miguel who I cannot say enough good things about and his crew. He was so
great in explaining what he was doing, being there on time and he and his crew
did such a great job and when I would come home everything was always neat,
clean and my yard gates and basement doors locked. MV neighbors cannot
believe how fast they worked and how great my yard looks.
You have a wonderful staff and thank you again for the service you rendered. You
will be highly recommended by me to anyone thinking of using you.
I think its about time I express my feelings about the
excellent flood control system that you and your company
installed about six years ago. Every spring I’m reminded
about our annual flooding problem in prior years. Thanks to
your system, I now have peace of mine, in knowing that no
matter what kind for down pour we have, will not back up into my finished basement.
After an comparative search for the right company, also the
right unit that best suited are needs. 1′m convinced that I
made the right choice. As far as I’m concerned time, as
proven to me that your system is the best.
Recently you installed a sewer back-up system at my home in Lincolnwood
intended to prevent basement flooding which had occurred in the past. I
write you at this time to tell you what a fine job your men did, and the
feeling of complete assurance that I now have that this system will prevent
any further flooding at my home.
Your men were very competent and explained each step of the way, the procedures
and the operation of the system. Although the weather was extremely cold they
worked very efficiently and completed the work on time. They cleaned up the
work area when they had finished working, and left me with a feeling of
I shall be happy to recommend your services to anyone who is in need of
this safety equipment and service. I should state that the Lincolnwood
authorities examined the work and approved it, and I therefore know that
all the work proceeded according to village code.
Yours very truly,
Leonard E. Handmacher
To Xpert Flood Control:
I would like to start off by saying that when we went and had three estimates
done for getting our home protected against flooding we had two other
companies come out before you for flood control first, Forte pluming and Ever
Ready flood so we were educated on the process, so we thought, but when you
came out you asked us questions that the other two did not, you went into very
important details that we believe were critical to our choosing the right flood
control system, once we heard this we knew that you were looking out for our
protection and piece of mind and we want to thank you for this.
You answered our questions where the other two did not, example: it was very
important to us to know were the pipes run under the floor and do they connect
as one? You went and had your people do a dye test just to see where the water
from the pipe flows. The other two companies when asked this same question,
one said “you never know how these pipes run under the floor when the house
was built, they could zig zag, and the other company said a definite “no” that the
pipes are separate. It is very comforting to know that when you did the dye test
we learned that the pipes do connect as one.
I would also like you to know that my family arid I think your crew is very
professional; they are courteous and polite and always answered our questions.
They worked non-stop-even in the heaviest down pours with the lighting and
thunder going on all around them. Every time they left the site at the end of the
day, they left everything cleaned and orderly.
We have had some pretty nasty storms since you put our system in this June and
I cannot express how wonderful it is not to ever have to worry about flooding again!
My family and I think your flood control system is the best there is and it is not as
costly as the other two. I will recommend to anyone looking for the best system
around to X Pert Flooding, because you are EXPERTS!
I am also sending this letter to our Village in Elmwood Park thanking them for
A very, very, very satisfied customer,

HATS OFF’ TO XPERT FLOOD CONTROL. 3544 W. MONTROSE
During many heavy rains my basement constantly flooded until
1983. That’s when I had Xpert Flood Control install one of
there units in my home. Since installing there unit, my
basement is now safe from flooding. I recommend Xpert to
anyone wanting to keep there basement dry.
Thank you very much for your promptness in service in our emergency of the
cracked sewer line. We are very pleased with your workmanship and neatness
in putting everything back together. It has been a pleasure working with you
and your men.
We will be using you again I am sure.
BEACON MANAGEMENT COMPANY
I want to express our satisfaction with the service and
security provided by our new flood control unit. We bought
our home three in a half years ago. Flooding as always been
one of our major problems, even in the most minor rain
storms. It got to the point where we got fed up with the
situation, because any time it rained and the city of
Evanston’s sewers would back up, are basement would flood.
Since the installation of the unit, our basement is now dry.
Most Importantly, I have complete confidence in the flood
control unit to safeguard me against any storm.
I also want to thank Xpert on its service and
responsiveness. I appreciate the fact that you completed
all the work on schedule. Everyone at Xpert has been more
than helpful in answering any questions I had. It’s nice to
see a company that even takes the time to do a follow up
call with me to see if the system is working properly an if
I was completely satisfied with the system. In conclusion I
am more than satisfied with the system and the service.
Bruce W Mainzer
After two sessions with a flooded basement, we had your
flood control system installed and, for the last eight
years, we have had complete confidence in the unit. Ever
since July 14, 1981, it has been a silent partner in our
everyday living. We take vacations and do not worry about
finding flood problems when we return; everything is as clean
and dry as we left it.
During the 1987 rains, we went out, slept through violent
thunderstorms, and used our family room in the basement constantly
during all these heavy and continuous downpours that
caused so many people tragic hardships.
The use of the flood control has made our house a real home.
The steady, thorough and yearly inspection of the unit keeps
it operable and our home flood-free.
We, especially, appreciated the covering and care you took of
our lawn while excavating and installing the well needed to
house the flood control. The grass was covered which prevented
deterioration of the lawn and the hole was covered after working
hours to guard against any accidents occurring when no one was
around. The lawn was just as beautiful and healthy after the
flood control was installed as it was before any work had been
Our flood control is a definite plus to the value of our home.
