In the photo you can see a shadow at the top of the wood studs on the foundation wall: this is how far in the finished drywall needed to be because of the bowing in effect.  The reason we were called out to this Decatur, Illinois home was to stop the wall from moving in any further.  The wall continued to push in damaging the finished drywall and the homeowner wanted to fix the problem once and for all.  Otherwise, just resetting the finished wall in a couple of inches only would buy time until the force of the inward movement would damage the drywall a second time.  We installed our Geo-Lock® wall anchoring system to permanently solve the problem.

Job Stories From Decatur, IL
Crawl Space Waterproofing in Decatur, IL

Andrea H. of Decatur, IL was experiencing issues with standing water in her crawlspace due to open vents and improper space sealing. The standing water started causing mold and rotting wood in the crawlspace. Woods Basement Systems fixed the standing water by sealing the crawlspace with CleanSpace and vent covers along with a TwinPack sump pump to pump out water that may appear in the crawlspace. The customer also had a SaniDry installed to reduce the relative humidity and help control temperature in the crawlspace, which will decrease their energy bills.

Basement Dehumidification in Decatur, IL

A Decatur, IL resident was having problems with condensation in his basement.  He tried using a small household dehumidifier to dry the air, but it could not properly get the job done.  The condensation was beginning to form mold and was causing his entire home to smell.

Woods Basement Systems installed a SaniDry XP in his basement to solve his condensation problems.  The SaniDry XP dries the air and has a powerful blower that moves the dry air out and into the basement area.  The resident was very pleased with the SaniDry XP and now enjoys a dry and mold-free basement.

Foundation Settlement in Decatur, IL

Foundation settlement is a common issue among older homes and buildings.  Some common indicators of foundation problems are cracks extending from doors and windows, windows coming out of their square, and stair-step cracking.  It is important to get the problem solved rather than putting it off because the settlement will only get worse over time.  As the foundation problem does get worse, it’s going to cost more to fix it.

Woods Basement Systems uses Push Piers by Foundation SupportWorks to solve the foundation problems in a historical Decatur, IL building. Push piers solved this building’s foundation problems, and now the building can stand firm for many more years to come.

Push Piers Fix Settlement in Decatur, IL

A homeowner in Decatur, IL began noticing signs of a foundation problem both inside and outside of his home.  Inside, there were large cracks on the basement walls.  Outside, he saw stair-step cracks in his brick foundation.  The resident wanted to fix the problem before it got any worse.

Woods Basement Systems installed Push Piers by Foundation SupportWorks around the outside perimeter of the home.  The resident was very pleased with the work done by Woods and can now have peace of mind that his home will stand firm for many years to come.

Wall Anchor Installation in Decatur, IL

A Decatur, IL resident had been having problems with her basement walls cracking and slightly bowing.  She knew the problem would only get worse with time, so she decided to fix it while it was still small.  The resident planned to finish the basement someday, so the first step was to get the walls stabilized. 

Woods Basement Systems installed wall anchors along the outside of the basement walls. Wall anchors have been proven to be an effective and economical repair solution.  They have a quick installation time compared to other systems, and there is minimal disturbance from the installation.  The resident was happy with the work done by Woods and was relived to know the problem was solved once and for all.

Nasty Crawl Space in Decatur, IL

A homeowner in Decatur, IL was in the process of putting his house on the market when he noticed moisture and water in his crawl space.  He had been living in his home for 23 years and wanted to get the problem solved as soon as possible.  His biggest concern was selling his house and doing whatever needed to be done to make that happen.

Woods Basement Systems came out to inspect his crawl space and found inches of standing water.  In order to eliminate humidity, odors, and mold in the crawl space, Woods decided to install CleanSpace, SmartPipe, and a SuperSump.  The CleanSpace system kept the crawl space clean and dry, while the SmartPipe and SuperSump pumped water out and away from the home.

The resident was very pleased with the end result and greatly appreciated all the work done by Woods to restore the property value of his home.

We have a concrete patio under a wood deck. The patio's concrete has pull away from the house. In addition, the wood stairway from the wood deck is no longer level. I would like you to look at these two problems and give us your advice.
Louise Ct in Decatur
During moderate to heavy rain we get water in our basement. Its fully finished with carpet, drywall, and trim which is now showing some damage as it has flooded twice since my wife and I have owned the house (just over a year). It also does not have a sump pump so when it does flood we have to remove the water by hand via multiple shop vacs. We need to find out what our options are to fix the issue.
Green Meadow in Decatur
When it poured down rain last week, the carpet in our basement got soaked--the water must have leaked from somewhere in the foundation walls. This has happened once before, about 7 years ago. Before I put the carpet back down, I'd love to have somebody come out and do what needs to be done to keep it from happening again. Could you give us a quote on what it would take? Thanks!
