Basement Technologies Signs Exclusive Licensed Dealer Agreement With Terminix Services

Supplier News

Terminix Services (Illinois) has signed an exclusive Licensed Dealer agreement to join the company's National Basement Waterproofing Network.

| August 30, 2010

BOSTON — Basement Technologies, a leader in products, systems and services for the basement waterproofing industry, announced that Terminix Services (Illinois has signed an exclusive Licensed Dealer agreement to join the company's National Basement Waterproofing Network.

Terminix Services, headquartered in Danville, Illinois, is a 64-year old, third generation, family-owned major franchise specializing in all aspects of pest and termite control services. Starting with one employee in 1946, the company now employs a total of 43 associates, technicians and support staff and continues to maintain a close-knit family atmosphere and personal dedication to customer satisfaction that consistently results in long-term relationships.
The new Illini Basement Technologies Division, operating under the direction of Tom Haws, will complement existing Terminix services – for pest, termite and insect control – and will offer Basement Technologies' full-service basement waterproofing for all of East Central Illinois (in University of Illinois territory) from its offices in both Danville and Champaign, Illinois as well as additional service regions that include nine Illinois cities and nearby Covington, Indiana.
Many pest and termite issues are due to water problems and, prior to this alliance, Terminix referred waterproofing and water remediation to outside contractors. Now the company will directly participate in today's burgeoning $7 billion annual waterproofing market.
"We are joining forces with basement technologies because they have the best overall range of products and services for basement waterproofing and crawlspace encapsulation," said Terminix Services owner and president, Bill Fulton. "It is a natural fit for us in the sense of taking away moisture from a home and eliminating pests associated with that moisture. We look at the health of the entire home and not just kill bugs."
"By taking a whole house approach, and eliminating a homeowner's combined pest and moisture problems, we can take care of both short-term and long-term problems," he adds. "Now customers can receive the 'ultimate protection' they need from one source."
