The home Keith and Michelle S had recently bought in Mount Vernon, IL had foundation walls with major issues. They were severely bowing inward and had numerous large cracks and separations spanning each wall. The extensive damage had them worried that the walls would soon collapse so they called Woods Basement systems to see what could be done. Design Specialist Jake K. thoroughly inspected the foundation walls and recommended installing PowerBraces.
Woods installed the PowerBraces along the cracked, bowing walls. PowerBraces are adjustable, zinc-plated steel beams that are custom fit to the height of the basement and held firmly in place against the walls using steel brackets attached the concrete floors and floor joists above. PowerBraces won’t rust as they permanently stabilize the walls in place and prevent further damage. They also offer the opportunity to improve walls by tightening them during dry months.
Keith and Michelle S. no longer have to worry about the safety of their new home’s foundation walls because they are safe and secure.
Murali K. of Mount Vernon, IL had an alarming amount of water getting into his finished basement. After removing some dry wall he found that he had cracks in his foundation behind his finished walls. The cracks, as well as the joints between the foundation walls and floors, were allowing water to leak in which rotted the dry wall and wood framing as well as soaked the carpet. Murali was worried about the safety of his foundation and didn’t want to deal with any more water damage so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the foundation walls as well as the rest of the basement and recommended installed a wall support system alongside a waterproofing system.
Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked foundation walls. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract exterior pressure from unstable soil conditions. Earth anchors are embedded in the yard and attached to wall plates on the inside of the walls with galvanized steel anchor rods. They permanently stabilize walls in place and prevent future damage.
CleanSpace was installed over the foundation walls. CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick, durable plastic moisture barrier that prevents water from entering the basement through the foundation walls, instead directing it down to the drainage system.
The WaterGuard drainage system was installed under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. It’s situated on top of the concrete footing to keep it mud-free as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump.
Woods installed the TripleSafe to accept the water from the WaterGuard and pump it out of the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains a primary, a secondary and battery back up pump to ensure that the basement is protected from water, even when weather is severe or there is a power outage.
Woods installed IceGuards on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home to prevent water from getting back into the basement if the discharge lines become frozen or clogged by snow during winter months. IceGuards feature slotted openings that give water an alternative escape route into the yard.
Murali K. has peace of mind now because his foundation walls are stable and secure and his finished basement will remain dry.

Mike was having issues with his crawl space. He noticed that it was extra humid and wanted this problem to be corrected immediately before it did any further damage to his home. He called Woods Basement Systems and had a Systems Design Specialist tell him what the issue was and how to properly correct it.

A resident of Mount Vernon, IL called Woods Basement Systems to clean up his crawl space and eliminate humidity, odors, and mold. He had been living in his house for 6 years and was aware of the problem since he first moved in. He finally decided to do something about it when 4 inches of standing water accumulated in his crawl space. Some of the wood had begun to rot, and this was a big concern of the resident.
Woods installed a CleanSpace Encapsulation System, including CleanSpace liner and a SaniDry CX. The clean white material covered the floor and walls of the crawl space, making it a nice dry storage space for the resident. The SaniDry CX acted as an air filter and dehumidifier, resulting in dry clean air in the crawl space.
The resident was extremely pleased with the installation and how much of a difference it made in his crawl space. Now he no longer had to worry about rotting wood and other issues that could lead to major problems in his crawl space.
