Ken K. had a wet crawlspace that was threatening his home with mold and rotting wood. Hoping to keep his home safe, Ken called Woods Basement Systems to find a solution.
Woods came in and installed a drainage matting under CleanSpace. This drainage mat would help drain away any water that may get into the crawlspace. The CleanSpace was used to seal off the space to prevent moisture from getting into the space, helping to keep it dry.
A sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary.

To beautify their basement, EverLast Half-Wall was then installed. EverLast is inorganic, so it does not support mold growth. Mill Creek Flooring was also installed. Mill Creek is waterproof and does not support the growth of bacteria.
With Mill Creek and EverLast, Ketih and Nancy's basement is now dry, beautiful and free of mold.

Kevin and Kelley K. were experiencing major cracks and a bowing wall in the basement of their Ballwin, Missouri home. They contacted Woods Basement Systems, where Systems Design Specialist Rob Cronin designed a solution based on their needs. This solution consisted of installing Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors along the wall to stabilize and prevent further movement, and also return the wall to it's original position. These were installed by our Foreman Jeremy Raby and his team. The couple also decided it was best to waterproof their basement by installing our BrightWall®, to control leaks entering the basement wall areas by draining the water to the Waterguard® draining system instlalled in the floor along the wall. The WaterGuard® system is then drained to our Twin Pack sump pump containing two pumps: one primary pump and one backup, in the case the first one fails or is overworked. The waterproofing was completed by our Foreman Ryan Lovell and his team. Now, Kevin and Kelley can rest easy, knowing their basement walls are protected and stabilized, and they have great protection against basment leaks.

Foreman Adam A. then installed ThermalDry flooring and EverLast Half-Wall. ThermalDry and Everlast are inorganic and insulataed, so Tim can enjoy his new, beautiful basement free of mold and water.
When Ballwin resident, Betty, tested her homes radon levels, they were alarmingly high. After seeing Woods Basement Systems commercial on TV, she did not hesitate to call. Representative Ken Herrman met with her for a detailed radon testing & a free consultation on a mitigation system.
Ken explained to her that a radon mitigation system will prevent the toxic radon gas from entering her home. Exposure to these toxins overtime can cause various health issues, so Betty scheduled the mitigation installation for the following week.
Today, Betty has an effective mitigation system and her radon gas levels are significantly low.
After a long rainstorm, Peggy & Rod noticed that water was leaking into their basement from various areas. Without hesitation, they asked some friends who to call. They were referred to Woods Basement Systems, and scheduled an appointment on September 25,2014 with David Palmer, a System Design Specialist.
Being very familiar with wet basement issues, David did not take long in diagnosing the couple’s problem. David explained that their sill plate was slowly rotting away and causing minor leakage. Also, their downspout was channeling too much water at the corner of their foundation. Unfortunately, if these were not fixed in the near future, they would continue to get worse. The couple scheduled for a crew to come the following week.
Foreman Reginald Bradford and his crew installed the Sill Plate Draintile System to fix their rotting sill plate. Then, they installed a LawnScape Outlet that acts as a downspout extension to direct the drainage away from the foundation. The couple was enthused that the job was completed in one day. Today, they are enjoying their leak-free basement with confidence their storage will not be damaged every time it rains.
Ballwin couple, Kevin & Sue, were tired of dealing with their basement flooding every time it rained. Their waterproofing system was not working and they could not figure out why. Realizing they absolutely needed the space for storage, they were referred to Woods Basement Systems by a friend.
On September 11th, 2012, System Design Specialist, David Palmer met with the couple to diagnose their issue. David explained that the water was seeping through their walls, floors, and joints between them. He informed them that their original waterproofing system seemed to be clogged. This could be fixed, but he warned them it probably would not be long-lasting. He then suggested a permanent solution, the WaterGuard system. Kevin & Sue were instantly appealed to the fact that it was a non-clogging pipe system that does not rot. After doing more research on the products of Basement Systems, they decided that they wanted BrightWall panels to enhance the aesthetics of the dark, bare basement walls. Three days after their meeting with David, foreman Chris Armstrong and his crew arrived to save their basement.
Just in one day, the new interior drainage system was installed. The WaterGuard system is barely noticeable as it is hidden beneath a layer of concrete, which enthused the couple. The BrightWall panels, which were designed to work hand in hand with the WaterGuard system, has transformed their basement from a damp & dark room to a bright & open area that is perfect for neat and dry storage. Kevin & Sue could not be happier with their new basement and continue to reference Woods Basement Systems to their friends.
Bill B, a resident of Ballwin, MO, was having wet basement issues for a couple of years. After many failed attempts to fix it himself, he finally decided he needed professional help & a permanent solution. Representative, Kendall Blunt met with him to diagnose the source of his basement problem.
After her thorough assessment, it was obvious that Bills sump pump wasn't working correctly and water was seeping through Bills floor and walls. Kendall suggested that with a new sump pump, the WaterGuard System would resolve this issue. She also explained that his existing external French Drain wasn’t working because they often grow roots & clog with silt. For his crawlspace, the CleanSpace Pinkie Roll will help isolate the area from outside air, groundwater, and dirt.
Bill felt comfortable with Kendall’s knowledge and honesty, and knew Woods Basement Systems would be the answer to all of his basement problems. On July 3rd, 2013, foreman Jose Lorenzana and his crew successfully completed the project in one day. Bill now has an interior French drain system, known as the WaterGuard System, as well as a new and improved sump pump. Today, he is enjoying his healthy, dry and warranted basement with confidence he won’t have this problem again.
Ballwin resident, Mary O, was concerned about the deterioration of her homes foundation over the years. The basement walls were bowing & buckling, and the crawl space grew wet with a musty smell. She was referred by a friend to call Woods Basement Systems.
On July 3rd, 2014, representative, Chris Tite visited Mary’s home to diagnose what was causing her issues. After his assessment, Chris explained to Mary that the foundation soil was exceeding way too much pressure on the outside walls. He suggested that a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System will prevent them from getting worse, as well as help straighten them back to normal. He also informed her on the state-of-the-art CleanSpace Liner that would act as a barrier from moisture, outside air, as well as pests. This process of crawl space encapsulation would get rid of the musty smell. Mary felt comfortable with Chris’s knowledge as well as Wood’s access to the high-tech materials, she decided Woods Basement Systems was the right one for the job.
On July 17th, foreman Todd Wells and his crew began the transformation. The anchors were inserted in the soil outside the foundation. There, they are connected to the foundation walls by a steel rod to apply pressure. This procedure helps form them back to its original position. Mary’s home required 50 feet of CleanSpace liner to cover her entire crawl space. The liner will not only prevent the musty smell, but will also help save energy costs.
In just two days, the entire job was complete and Mary could not be happier with the results. She is now more comfortable knowing her home's foundation is safe, clean and warranted.
Larry's basemebt wall was beginning to bow in, causing cracks in the wall and the outside of the home. This is a common problem of settling earth in the active wedge. The active wedge is the dirt that was dug out in order to build the foundation, then used to fill the whole back again. It is called the active wedge because the dirt is continuously moving, shifting and settling.
To stabilize Larry's wall, Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed. Multiple thin rods are drilled out from the basement, and past the active layer of dirt to a more stable ground. Then plates are connected to these galvanized rods to anchor them to the solid earth.
Larry's wall is now stabilized and will eventually straighten out, over time.
Terry's home in Ballwin, MO had seen better days. Several cracks ran around the basement walls, and already water had found its way through some and showed no signs of stopping. The stellar things Terry had heard about Woods Basement Systems convinced him to contact us for a free professional inspection, service recommendation, and price estimate.
Woods found one of the walls was bowing inwardly and needed to be anchored. Woods installed seven Geo-Lock wall anchors, protecting the wall from any further bowing and even allowing periodic corrections to straighten the wall! Terry also purchased the WaterGuard drainage system, which stands apart from conventional pipes due to its patented design and location in the basement floor. WaterGuard will not clog or cause structural foundation damage. It catches any water that drips down the walls and delivers it to a sump pump, which means no puddles on the floor!
Terry and his wife Robin now enjoy their totally dry basement with a structurally sound foundation!
