Festus, Missouri homeowner Harry K. was distraught when water made its way into his basement. Previously, Harry had the Geo-Lock wall anchors installed to straighten his bowing walls. Though this can aide in keeping water out, waterproofing is the only way to ensure water stays out.

Barbara G. of Festus, MO had an alarming amount of water leaking into her basement any time there was bad weather. Over the years, the foundation walls had been stained from the water that came in and mold had grown along the stone bricks. Barbara had a sump pump but it was old and rusted and was doing little to keep the basement dry. The water threatened the belongings she had stored in the basement every time it got in so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Peter N. thoroughly inspected the inside and outside of the basement and recommended installing a waterproofing system.
Over the dingy, water damaged walls, Woods installed CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a thick, durable plastic liner that can be installed over rough or uneven walls and prevents moisture from entering into the basement through the foundation walls. It directs unwanted water to the perimeter drainage system while giving the basement a cleaner and brighter appearance.
WaterGuard was installed along the walls, under the concrete floors of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that will remain free from mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and carries it to the sump pump.
The TripleSafe sump system replaced the old, rusted sump pump. The TripleSafe contains two high-powered, cast-iron pumps and a battery back up pump to ensure that encroaching water is always being pumped out of the basement through the discharge lines, even when weather is severe or there is a power outage. IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the basement if the discharge lines become frozen or clogged by allowing it to escape through its slotted openings.
Barbara is thrilled that she finally has a basement that will stay dry and she no longer has to worry whenever she uses it for storage.

With water leaking into her basement, Sierra W. of Festus, MO wanted to ensure her home was safe from damaging water. Sierra called Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to her leaking problem.
Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This provides water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.
CleanSpace was installed to the basement walls to help provide control to the water. The CleanSpace will provide a guide for the water to flow into the WaterGuard or sump pump.
SilverGlo Insulated Panels were installed to provide additional insulation for the space. These panels help control the environment of the space and helped lower Sierra's energy bills.
A Twin Pack 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 basement, 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.
Sierra now has a waterproofed basement and can feel safe storing important items in the basement. Woods also provide Sierra with products that would help her energy bills be reduced and keep the basement properly insulated.
Janet M. in Festus, MO had cracks in her crawlspace wall that were allowing water to get into the space. This water had the potential to cause mold and rotting wood in the space. Janet M. wanted to make sure her space would be safe from damages of standing water, so she called Woods Basement Systems.
Woods came in and installed CleanSpace to seal off the space from moisture. This would keep standing water out of the space, helping prevent mold and rotting wood.
Woods also installed a SaniDry with a condensation pump. This would also help with the moisture in the crawlspace. The SaniDry filters the moisture out of the air and the condensation pump will pump that moisture out of the house.
