This Chesterfield, Missouri basement has leaks that leave the basement floor covered with water. In the before picture we see an entry point for water. WaterGuard was installed in this home which is a unique waterproofing system in that it sits on the footing of the home's foundation rather than in the mud which prevents the WaterGuard from clogging with mud. (please note that the concrete in the after picture had not had time to cure prior to the taking of the picture)
The room addition was losing HVAC air in the crawl space and the room above was cool in the winter and warmer in the summer causing uncomfortable rooms and high utility bills. The CleanSpace® encapsulation system in combination with the SmartDrain® was the perfect solution.
This Chesterfield, Missouri homeowner came across a leak in the basement along one side of a wall only during a heavy rainfall. We installed our WaterGuard® basement waterproofing system that neatly fits behind the finished drywall. The WaterGuard® drains all the collected water to our TriplSafe® sump pump system that includes a three pumps, including one that is a battery backup.

Shad M., Chesterfield, Missouri homeowner, was troubled by his uneven patio and walkway. The concrete around his pool was also uneven. The uneven concrete was a safety concern for his family and friends. System design specialist Matthew S. designed a solution.
Foreman Andrew T. installed PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL lifts and aligns the concrete to its original position. PolyLEVEL does not interact with the soil or settle, so it provides a long-lasting solution.
Shad's patio is now safe and beautiful. He no longer has to worry about the concrete settling and becoming a hazard.
Gary F. of Chesterfield, MO had a retaining wall that had seen better days. It was bowing inward and cracking under all the pressure from soil on the other side of it. It supported Gary’s deck so he was worried that if it failed, he’d end up having to replace both the wall and the deck so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist John S. inspected the wall and found Geo-Lock Wall Anchors would be the best solution.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed along the bowing, cracked wall. They counteract soil pressure by embedded earth anchors in stable soil conditions in the yard and connecting them to steel wall plates on the inside of the wall with galvanized steel anchor rods. The wall is permanently stabilized in place and can be straightened over time by tightening the wall anchors during dry periods. In Gary’s case, the retaining wall was straightened immediately be excavating the earth on the outside of the wall then tightening the anchors to straighten the wall and replacing the soil and sod over the excavation site.
Gary is relieved that his retaining wall is stable and secure and his porch is safe.
Walt and Virginia M.’s rental property in Chesterfield, MO had an uneven patio. It posed a major tripping hazard. Walt and Virginia were worried about the safety of their tenants so they called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Terran J. inspected the patio and suggested injecting the patio with PolyLevel.
PolyLevel is an expanding polymer foam that was injected underneath the patio. It fills any voids caused by erosion underneath the concrete slabs and lifts and levels the concrete as it expands. There is less downtime than traditional mudjacking: the concrete can be used again in about 15 minutes. It’s also waterproof so it won’t be washed away, making it a more permanent solution than mudjacking.
Walt and Virginia M. have peace of mind that the concrete patio won’t be hazardous to their renters moving forward.

Dawn and David noticed that there was water in their crawl space, and there was mold. Their crawl space also infected their basement. The walls of the basement had big dried up water spots that weren’t very appealing. They didn’t report that there was any bad smells going on, and the mold had not affected them. Dawn and David use their basement for extra living space, so they knew the problem needed to be fixed right away.
Woods Basement Systems, Inc. sales rep Kevin went out to inspect the home, and he gave them the solution they needed: SmartPipe and CleanSpace. SmartPipe allowed water from the crawl space to drain out so their crawl space and basement would stay dry, and CleanSpace to prevent mold from growing and the musty smell that comes with it. Juan and his crew went out to the house and installed the products in an efficient amount of time.
Dawn and David were very satisfied with the work done by Juan and his crew, and now they can live comfortably.
This week Irene had her crawlspace flooded with water and needed it the water gone as soon as possible. She also wanted to stop the water flow at its source. The problem was that water was coming in from under the home and getting in through footers and flooding the entire basement. In turn, this water made it damp and humid, which is the perfect environment for mold to colonize. Woods Basement Systems came out to evaluate her concerns and see how they could correct the situation. Irene purchased the SmartPump System, the SmartPipe System, the SaniDry XP System as well as the CleanSpace wall coverings to insure that everything would be fixed the proper way once and for all. With all of these systems working together, there was no way water was going to be a concern for her anymore. The SumpPump would get the water out and the SmartPipe would catch any water coming through the dirt floor.
Now production had to begin, first a hole was dug out and the SmartPump System was placed inside and turned up so that all the water in the basement was pumped out. Originally the water collected all around the basement, not a trench was dug where the SmartPipe would lie in order to catch any water coming through the dirt floor. All exteriors lines for the SmartPump were then connected and lead outside of the home. Now that the two main systems where placed and ready to go, the CleanSpace wall covering was placed over the top floor which made it brighter and waterproof. With the CleanSpace done, the last thing to do was to suck out the humid air with the SaniDry System and prevent mold growth. Irene was very pleased on how her crawlspace turned out and how dry is has become from the original point. If you or someone you know is looking to have their crawlspace inspected give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.
Noble already had a partial WaterGuard system installed in the basement of his Chesterfield, MO home. The system did wonders, but his goal was to keep the whole basement dry, not just part of it. So he called Woods Basement Systems, Inc. back out to finish the perimeter of the basement.
BrightWall was also installed for that fresh, clean look, and also to drain any excess water coming in from the walls to the new WaterGuard installation.
Noble was pleased with the work and now can rest easy knowing his basement is protected by a full WaterGuard system and BrightWall.
Leaky window wells can be a nuisance for any homeowner. A resident of Chesterfield, MO was discovering just how annoying they can be. Every time it rained, water would come in through the window, and there was no waterproofing system to carry the water to the sump pump.
Woods Basement Systems solved the leakage problem by replacing the windows with EverLast windows and installing a WaterGuard system. The resident now enjoys a dry basement that can be used for storage and isn’t just a useless space.
This resident of Kirkwood, MO had an unreliable waterproofing system that did not keep the basement dry. Rain would flood the basement, and the sump pump could not keep up with the amount of incoming water. The homeowner wanted to use his unfinished basement for storage, but was unable to do so.
Woods Basement Systems installed WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump in order to keep the resident’s basement dry. Each of these products worked together to effectively keep the basement dry, resulting in a happy customer with more storage space in his home.
David plans on living in his house for the rest of his life. When rain ruined his carpet, David sought aid for his leaking basement. Woods Basement Systems performed a free home inspection and advised David to purchase a TripleSafe sump pump as well as WaterGuard, two IceGuards, and our incredible ThermalDry floor tiling.
What makes this a great waterproofing system? The WaterGuard collects water from all directions thanks to its patented wall flanges. The TripleSafe receives water from WaterGuard and pumps it out of the house. To address the possibility of freezing of discharge lines, IceGuard is designed to dispel the backing-up water before it floods the pump. Each product plays an instrumental role in keeping water out of David's basement.
Our exemplary ThermalDry floor tiles nearly sold themselves with their beauty and practicality. These simple snap-on tiles are durable, spill-resistant, and they dehumidify air from the ground using circulation pockets.
David can now happily spend his days of retirement in a dry, happy, healthy home; you can too!
Jeff noticed that his walls were starting to crack and bow inward. He called Woods Basement Systems to get a free estimate. Our System Design Specialist came and said that Jeff's best option for repair would be the Wall Anchor System. This would pull his wall back into place and would stop future cracks and bowing from occurring.
When Jeff agreed with our proposal, Woods came fixed the cracked walls and installed six Geo-lock Wall Anchors with concrete for extra strength. After his walls were straightened out, Jeff decided to complete his basement with EverLast Perimeter Wall with white trim, six panel unfinished primed door with knobs, and wall anchor covers. With these in place, Jeff's basement is more comfortable and looks brand new.
