A couple of years ago, I discovered that I had a foundation problem in the crawl space of a rental unit I own. I hired [another company] to fix the problem. [The other company] did a very poor job and the problem continued. Since [said company] would not “stand behind” his work, I was forced to find another foundation contractor. After being burned by [another company], I consulted with several foundation contractors before making my selection. After careful deliberation, I selected Woods Basement Systems.
Choosing Woods Basement Systems is probably one of the better decisions I have made in life. Woods was very honest with me and very thorough in his investigation of my problem. His office staff was very accommodating. Although I did not actually witness the job being performed, the elderly lady renting my unit did observe the crew. She said they were very courteous, professional and efficient. I did inspect the work after it was performed. Although I am not an engineer, it seemed to be of exceptionally high quality. The job that Woods Basements Systems did was far superior to [other company]. To date, the job that Woods Basement Systems performed is holding well. I truly believe that Woods Basement Systems corrected my foundation problem; should I have future problems with my foundation, I have every confidence that Woods will “stand behind” their work.
It is for these reasons and more that I give Woods Basement Systems my highest recommendation. I hope that I never have another foundation problem, but if I do, I will only call Woods Basement Systems.
DryTrak is the logical solution for a wet basement with a monolithic foundation, meaning the footing and floor are one piece. The DryTrak system combines superior materials and practical design to remove water seepage from the floor-wall joint and direct it to the sump pump. It will never clog because it is not sitting in the mud. DryTrak is effective on all types of foundations, including poured concrete, brick, block, and stone. The DryTrak system keeps basements dry so they can be used for storage space, recreational purposes, or additional living space.
This old, leaky window was replaced with a new one in order to prevent water from entering through the cracks. The old window had begun to separate from the exterior, and cracks were extending out from the square. The cracks were sealed, and the new window fit perfectly in the square, keeping the rain out.
This dirty crawl space was full of mold, dust, and who knows what else! By installing CleanSpace, the crawl space became a neat and clean area perfect for storage. CleanSpace can turn a worthless nasty area into a tidy useful space.
Witness the difference between damp, unfinished basement walls and floors and dry, gorgeous space remodeled with Total Basement Finishing. These damp basement walls and floor in Champaign, Illinois were transformed into a delightfully-finished space. The inorganic, insulated wall, waterproof basement flooring, and vinyl baseboard trim provide a clean and bright finish that will not encourage mold growth and wil continue to look great for years to come.
Believe it or not, these photos are actually from the same spot in the same Gibson City, Illinois basement. What was once a damp, musty basement environment is now a beautifully-remodeled, clean, dry, and usable living space.
Groundwater seepage and humidity in this basement ruined the wood paneling and building materials in the basement over time, caused musty smells, and was the perfect environment for mild to thrive. But no longer!
Woods Basement Systems waterproofed and then completely remodeled this basement using inorganic, Total Basement Finishing materials from bottom to top. Everything from the flooring to the drop ceiling is inorganic, waterproof material and mold-resistant.
