DeKalb Illinois Ag mogul Tom Roberts III, commissioned a house to be built by renowned architect and Chicago area native Harry Weese in the early 1970s.
Harry Weese’s work was so celebrated he is labeled as, “the architect who shaped Chicago’s skyline”. He also had led renovations on important buildings such as The Adler Planetarium, The Field Museum of Natural History, and The Chicago Orchestra Hall.
Among the many quirks of the house Roberts commisioned was a pool in the shape of an ear of corn. In fact, the bottom of the pool bore the famed DeKalb flying ear of corn.
Fast-forward to present and the current homeowners were planning a big 80th birthday for their father. The party had been planned, the food purchased, and the invitations sent. There was only one thing not ready…the pool. Looking great on the surface, it had a very real problem underneath.
A camera inspection unveiled major cracks in the water lines and drain pit. Water was leaking everywhere, and the iconic pool was in serious danger. Beautiful trees, landscaping, and the pool itself, needed to be torn up to fix the problem if done the conventional way.
Luckily, the homeowners were past customers of ours, and asked if there was a way for us to help.
Under a time crunch, we stepped up to the plate. We sent our team of fully certified, licensed, and trained professionals to the job site armed with the latest in Perma-Liner Technology.
