Woods Basement Systems has dealt with structural movement, continued shrinkage and other factors even in new homes—just like this one in Fenton, Missouri. Crack injections are merely a band-aid, and the crack will often get larger and re-leak. We use a method we've developed to permanently fix your wall crack and stop leakage.
For many homes with flooded basements, like this one in Fenton, Missouri, a sump pump is a necessary element of a basement waterproofing system. Woods Basement Systems recommends a Zoeller sump pump. This pump was chosen as the best from among nearly 50 models and is very quiet due to the airtight sump pump cover; the discharge line is equipped with 2 rubber fittings for additional sound and vibration reduction.
Helical anchors have been used by Woods Basement Systems to stabilize foundation and retaining walls like this home in Fenton, Missouri for years because of their effectiveness. Helical anchors are widely accepted and used by engineers, architects, and contractors to stabilize bowing basement walls. In fact, in 1992, wall anchor systems were identified by a Chief Appraiser for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as the most effective means of stabilizing bowing foundation walls.

When Sharon J of Fenton, MO noticed cracks in her basement wall she knew that something was wrong. The cracks were all over her walls and gave unwanted water a place to enter the basement through. That is when she contacted Woods Basement Systems. Our Woods crew inspected the house and saw that one of the walls was starting to bow inward, causing stress on the foundation.
Woods' team members installed our Geo-Lock Wall Anchors that attach to the basement wall to undisturbed soil to straighten the wall and prevent any future bowing or cracking. A WaterGuard and Twin Pack sump pump combination was also added to keep the basement dry. The WaterGuard installed around the perimeter catches any water that tries to enter and guides it to the Twin Pack sump pump.
Fenton, Missouri resident Rick F.'s basement was threatened by water leaking in where the floor meets the wall. Water leaked into his bedrooms putting his belongings at risk for damage.
Adam R., Woods Basement Systems' system design specialist, designed a solution to keep Rick's living space dry. The WaterGuard drainage system was installed in addition to the TripleSafe sump pump system by Michael P. and his crew.
The WaterGuard guides water to the TripleSafe and out of the basement, so Kurt can enjoy his basement without the hassle of water seepage.
Rick F. in Fenton, Missouri was having issues with water leaking into his basement in several places. His partially finished basement and the valuables he stored there were at risk to water damage and mold. Our system design specialist, Adam R. designed a specialized solution to keep Rick's basement permanently dry.
Woods' foreman, Michael P. installed the WaterGuard system which will direct any water that could leak into the basement to a Twin Pack sump pump that was also installed.
After those two systems were put in place Michael and his installation team also dug out an existing window well, that was constantly filled with rain water, and installed a SunHouse window well enclosure. This enclosure will prevent any future water from entering through that basement window.
To further ensure Rick's basement stays dry IceGuard was installed outside the home. IceGaurd automatically ejects water away from the home in the event that a pipe should freeze in the cold winter months.
This week, Orville and Susy had Woods Basement Systems come out to have their patio PolyLEVELed. They gave Woods a call to talk about their once flat patio and how now it had risen and also sunk in certain spots. They needed to know what could be done to have it releveled to the original height of other concrete slabs around them. Woods sent out a specialist to inspect the problem and give them more information about what was happening and the best possible solutions for patio. Orville and Susy purchased PolyLEVEL, which is the best solution to any concrete slab raising today.
PolyLEVEL is a very straight forward and simple task when you know what you’re doing and have the right company to do it for you. To begin, a penny sized hole about 5/8th of an inch is drilled in to the concrete slabs that need to be lifted. Then polyurethane foam is shot down under the slabs filling in all the holes and dips allowing the entire slab to rise as one piece. Polyurethane is an amazing material as it eco-friendly and very light, yet industrially strong. Now that everything is level, the holes are patched up and it is all done. Orville and Susy came out to see their finished patio and are astonished with what is looks like. They can get back to enjoying their summer out on the patio with friends and family. If you know someone or are looking to have a PolyLEVEL inspection done, give us a call here at woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.
