Conner J. was experiening standing water in his Carbondale, IL crawlspace. Conner J. knew that if this continued, his home would suffer from mold and rotting wood. He called Woods Basement Systems to help him find a solution.
Woods came in and installed a sump pump to help evacuate the unwanted water. This water is pumped out of the crawlspace into the yard through a discharge line. The discharge line can sometimes become clogged or frozen. If this happens, the water could back up into the space. Woods installed IceGuard to prevent this from happening. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line to provide and escape route for water in a clogged or frozen situation.
John W. of Carbondale,IL had a crawlspace that was previously encapsulated. However, John was still having issues controlling the moisture. Concerned for the saftey of his home, he made an appointment with Woods Basement Systems.
Woods installed an UltraSump that would work in most conditions to pump out water if it got into the crawlspace. This water is pumped out of the crawlspace through a discharge line that empties in the yard.
Woods also installed a SaniDry to help control the moisture in the crawlspace. The SaniDry will filter moisture out of the air, it is a dehumidifier for your crawlspace. This will control the humidity and moisture of the crawlspace.
These two products will work together to control moisture and prevent mold from growing and wood from rotting.
Tristan T. of Carbondale, Illinois was troubled by water leaking into his basement where the floor meets the wall. Because of the slope of the ground surrounding his home, water easily flowed into his home.
System design specialist Nathan H. designed a solution to waterproof Tristan's basement. TrenchDrain was installed to accept water that flows into the home at an entryway. The TrenchDrain grated drainage system then guides water to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a perimeter drainage system that guides water to the TwinPack sump pump system.
With WaterGuard, TwinPack and TrenchDrain, Tristan's basement will stay dry.

This Carterville, IL homeowner didn’t want to completely finish his basement, but also wanted something to give it a clean and polished look, while adding waterproof protection. In the past, he had tried coating the walls with paints and sealants, but moisture still permeated through them. This only made the walls look worse due to the peeling and flaky coatings on them.
Woods solved this homeowner’s issue by installing BrightWall. The BrightWall Paneling System turns basements that may otherwise have been unusable into attractive, dry living spaces. The resident was very pleased with the end result and now enjoys a clean and dry basement.
A resident of Vergennes, IL had been living in her house since 1970. For the past 2 years, she noticed that the cracks in her walls and exterior brick had been getting worse. She was concerned about the issue and wanted to get it fixed before the cracks became wider and the problem worsened.
The homeowner had previously called another basement company, but she decided not to go through with the project because she didn’t trust them. However, that was not the case when Woods Basement Systems sent out a crew to inspect the house. The homeowner was very impressed with the professionalism and quality of work done by Woods.
Woods installed a SmartJack system in her crawl space, resulting in lifting the home back toward its original position. The SmartJack Reinforcement System was installed in less than one day, and the resident was highly satisfied with the ending result.
