Timothy M. found some long cracks in the foundation walls of his elderly mother’s home in Foristell, MO. He was worried the walls would get worse, even fail, if he didn’t do something so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.
Unstable soil conditions can put a tremendous amount of pressure on the exterior of foundation walls and damage them. Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked foundation walls to counteract the pressure. To do this, wall plates on the inside of the foundation walls were connected to earth anchors that were buried in stable conditions in the yard using galvanized steel anchor rods. They permanently stabilize the walls in place and prevent future damage to the walls.
Angie and Neil B., Foristell, Missouri homeowners, were distraught by the musty smell their old sump pump system left in their basement. The pump allowed moisture to escape into the air causing mold to grow.
Foreman James L. installed the TripleSafe sump system. TripleSafe is enclosed, so no musty odors escape into the air. Also, TripleSafe is equipped with a main pump, backup pump and battery-powered pump, so Angie and Neil have no need to worry about a wet basement.

Timothy M. noticed long cracks in the foundation walls of his elderly mother’s Foristell, MO home. He was worried the damage might get worse if they left it so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free, no obligation inspected. After assessing the foundation walls, Design Specialist John S. found that the best solution would be Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.
Woods installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked walls. Unstable soil conditions on the exterior of foundation walls can cause damage like cracking, bowing and tilting. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract that pressure. Earth anchors are embedded in stable soil conditions in the yard. Galvanized steel anchor rods are driven through the foundation walls and connected to the earth anchors. Wall plates are attached to the anchor rods on the inside of the walls and the system is tightened. They permanently stabilize walls in place and prevent future damage to walls. They can even straighten walls over time by time by tightening them during dry months.
Timothy M. is relieved that that his mother’s home is safe and that the foundation walls are secure.

By installing our WaterGuard trench drain system around the perimeter of the basement floor, any water that would enter through cracks in the walls or foundation is caught by the WaterGuard which then directs the water to our TripleSafe sump pump where the water is drained.
These products ensure that Ronnie and Diana will have a clean, dry space for many years.

Rene’s home in Foristell, MO was dramatically shifting due to her foundation soils. After turning to the yellow pages for professional help, she found Woods Basement Systems and scheduled a free estimate with system design specialist, Norman Gansz.
After a comprehensive assessment on December 6th 2012, Norman suggested the Foundation Supportworks, Inc. Push Pier System. Rene appealed to this innovative system because it was adjustable, quick to install, and a permanent fix. She scheduled a crew for the install in the following spring.
On April 15th, foreman Jaylon Orban and his crew finished the project in 4 days. Using hydraulic equipment, the galvanized piers were positioned on sturdy bedrock deep beneath her foundation. Now, the weight of her home is resting on these stabilized piers, rather than the settling soil. Rene will no longer have a shifting problem and she has also increased the overall value of her home.

Robert arrived at Stephen’s house on September 28, 2012 for a thorough assessment. The foundation walls were cracking and bowing because they were no longer stable, unfortunately they would get worse if not corrected.

On October 24th, foreman Matthew Asher and his team installed the system in one work day. Stephen’s foundation soils are no longer affecting his walls because the galvanized earth anchors have stabilized them. He also has the option to tighten the anchors to correct & straighten the walls. Stephen can now enjoy his stable & dry basement for many years to come.
