This resident of Kirkwood, MO had an unreliable waterproofing system that did not keep the basement dry.  Rain would flood the basement, and the sump pump could not keep up with the amount of incoming water.  The homeowner wanted to use his unfinished basement for storage, but was unable to do so.  Right now the basement was merely wasted space in the home, and the homeowner wanted to solve this problem.

Woods Basement Systems installed WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump in order to keep the resident’s basement dry.  These products worked together to effectively keep water out, resulting in a happy customer with more storage space in his home.

Job Summaries From Saint Louis, MO
Leaky Basement in Webster Groves, MO

One Webster Groves home has been through at least three different homeowners, but it was the latest homeowner who inherited and finally decided to resolve his wet basement problem.

When William D. purchased his home, the basement included two existing sump pump systems.  Unfortunately, the two sump pumps were not enough to keep his basement dry.  Hydrostatic pressure on the exterior caused the basement walls to crack and leak, groundwater would seep in between the walls and floor, and rainwater would run underneath the basement door and across the basement floor.  Moisture penetrating the basement walls caused paint to crack and chip.  Eventually, his existing sump pumps failed.  Standing water jeopardized items stored in the basement and threatened to ruin William's valuables.

William's story changed the moment he called Woods Basement Systems.  He met with System Design Specialist Rich Obermeier, who carefully inspected William's basement and thoroughly discussed William's goals.  Foreman Michael Jones, Jr. completely removed the failed sump pumps and installed a brand-new TripleSafe sump pump system, including two primary pumps and a third battery backup sump pump to keep William's basement dry all the time.  The crew also installed WaterGuard along the basement perimeter to drain groundwater seepage from the wall-floor joint directly to the sump pump.

William's project also included the IceGuard sump pump discharge line system to prevent his sump pump discharge pipes from freezing in the winter.  William is very impressed with his system, the crew, and our company.  Today, he's free to use his basement for storage and will never have to worry about groundwater leaks again!

Excellent Basement Waterproofing in St. Louis
System Design Specialist Ben Gibson inspected Aaron's basement and provided a free estimate.  To properly waterproof the basement, Ben recommended the CleanSpace Wall System to cover and seal off the limestone foundation walls as well as drain groundwater seepage into the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system.  To keep his basement dry all the time, Aaron selected the TripleSafe sump pump system to include a battery backup pumping system.
 
Regarding Ben's inspection and proposal, Aaron said, "I appreciate that he was straightforward regarding the need to perform leveling (there was none)."  According to Aaron, Woods Basement Systems' plan for basement waterproofing seemed like it would last longer than what other waterproofing contractors suggested.
 
Regarding the crew, Aaron wrote: "These guys were excellent! They were able to schedule the work quickly once I signed, and arrived promptly on the scheduled work date. The installation required approximately two 8-hour days, and Jessir, Miguel, and the crew were professional throughout the work."
 
Aaron's basement has been dry ever since.
Settling, Wet Basement Webster Groves, MO

Katherine has lived in her house for about three and a half years.  Unfortunately when she moved in she inherited the previous owner’s leaky basement troubles.  She noticed that large amounts of water came into her basement after a decent amount of rain and that her walls were starting to crack.  Not only were both of these big issues, but mold was also starting to form in the wet places in her home.

After talking with several basement professionals, she decided Woods Basement System would be able to fix her problem the best.  She met with System Design Specialist Tim Warchol to discuss her options.  Upon talking with him, Katherine discovered that her house was slowly sinking deeper and deeper into soil.  This was why her basement was leaking so much and why her foundation was cracking from the inside out.

Katherine and Tim came to the conclusion that Push Piers would be the best decision to save her home from settling any further.  Foreman Miguel Ortiz came in and installed the Push Piers in three days.  Katherine is now very happy that she can continue living in a house that stands firm with all cracks repaired and no leakage.

Finished Basement Gets Wet In Olivette

     Joseph and Rebecca reached out to Woods Basement Systems for help with their finished basement. Leaky windows and basement walls plagued the 76 year old home. The previous owners of the house had installed a basic sump pump, but it wasn't pumping. Woods immediately went to work on these issues.

      First, the WaterGuard drainage system was inserted around the basement perimeter. Its patented design and unique location in the concrete prevents basement flooding and drain clogging, something other systems can't guarantee.

     Woods serviced the walls next. They installed a CleanSpace wall system in a basement closet, creating a dry and clean atmosphere. In another area, BrightWall waterproof paneling was put up. BrightWall is made of inorganic material which discourages mold growth and stops moisture from seeping through foundation walls into the rest of the home. Woods also performed an EverLast Wall Restoration, ensuring a beautiful, dry, and mold-free environment.

 The TripleSafe Sump Pump replaced the old faulty pump. TripleSafe is the pinnacle of sump technology and--living up to its name--has safeguards against all three reasons a pump can fail. 

Now, instead of 76 years old, Joseph and Rebecca's finished basement looks and feels young again. Thanks, Woods! 

Woods Solves Cold Basement Issue in St. Louis, MO

A St. Louis, MO customer called Woods Basement Systems in a panic because she had recently had work done by another company in her basement, yet there was still water seeping through the cracks.  She was very unsatisfied with the previous work that had been done, and all she had to show was an uneven chain link fence, concrete poured in her yard, and a cut cable line. 

Woods sent out the Production Manager to inspect the issues and found that the windows that had been installed were measured incorrectly, which caused cracks and the temperature in the basement to drop.  The customer had Woods install Everlast windows and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Energy Saver.

The customer was very satisfied with the work done by Woods Basement Systems, and can now live comfortably in her basement.

 

Wet Basement in St. Louis, MO

A St. Louis resident had the typical problem of water flooding her basement.  However, rather than putting off permanently solving the problem like most people would do, she decided to give Woods a call and find a solution.  After an inspection, Woods told her which products would most benefit her situation and solve the problem.

Woods installed FlexiSpan, IceGuard, WaterGuard, and a TripleSafe sump pump in order to permanently waterproof the basement.  The customer was very happy with the quality of the work and how dry her basement has stayed since then.

Woods Waterproofs East Saint Louis Home

An East Saint Louis resident had been living with water in her basement for 6 years.  It wasn’t until the problem began getting worse that she gave Woods Basement Systems a call.  She would get inches of water in her finished basement every time there was a heavy rain, and she wanted to solve the issue once and for all.

After a thorough inspection, Woods installed WaterGuard, IceGuard, and  a TripleSafe sump pump in the resident’s basement.  This prevented the water from entering the basement by pumping it out and away from the home.  The TripleSafe was able to keep up with the large amounts of water because of its three-pump system.  There was not a problem with the WaterGuard clogging because it was installed on top of the footing rather than beside it.

The resident was very satisfied with the waterproofing and now enjoys a dry basement all the time.  She rated Woods a 10 out of 10 and said she is very likely to recommend their excellent work.

Saint Louis, MO home Waterproofed forever

Water kept dripping down William's walls in his basement.  The water ruined his walls and floors.  So he called Woods Basement Systems to get a free estimate and decide what his best option for repair was. The System Designs Specialist said that they would repair the leaky walls and install WaterGuard, IceGuard, and LawnScape to make sure the water stays out of his basement.

William thought this was his best option.  So the Foreman installed all three systems and fixed the cracks with Flexispan to make sure the water stays out.  William was impressed with how early the technician arrived, how quickly he performed and the clean up that was performed after the job was over.  William recommends Woods to other people looking to get their leaky basements fixed for good.

Woods Fixes Leaky Basement in Saint Louis, MO

A Saint Louis, MO resident had been dealing with a wet basement for far too long before she finally decided to call Woods Basement Systems.  Woods made sure her basement would stay dry by installing WaterGuard, BrightWall, TripleSafe, and SaniDry XP.  The WaterGuard caught all of the water coming into the home without getting clogged, while the TripleSafe pumped it out and away from the home.  The BrightWall paneling systems brightened her basement and gave it a clean, semi-finished touch.  The SaniDry XP kept the air dry and clean by acting as a dehumidifier and an air filtration system.  The customer was very pleased with the work done by Woods and enjoyed no longer having to worry about water leakage in her basement.

Push Piers Fix Saint Louis, MO Foundation

This homeowner was having problems with his block foundation.  The foundation settlement caused stair-step cracks to appear in the foundation and exterior brick walls of the home, and the windows began coming out of their frames.  Woods Basement Systems installed Push Piers around the outside perimeter of the home to fix the homeowner’s foundation settlement issue.  After the installation of the Push Piers, the cracks in the walls closed up and the windows were brought back into their frames, resulting in a strong foundation for the home once again.

Push Piers and Waterproofing in Kirkwood, MO

James and Debbie didn't like how cracks were forming in their house and how water was coming through those cracks.  They called Woods Basement Systems and had a Specialist come to their house and give them a free estimate.  To fix the problem, Push Piers were installed to stabilize their home and stop further cracking.  To fix the cracks that had already formed, FlexiSpan was installed.  Next, WaterGuard, a Twin Pack Sump Pump, IceGuard, and LawnScape were installed to direct water outside of the home.  Today, James and Debbie's home stands firm and the basement stays dry.

Wall Anchors Restore Value in St. Louis, MO Home

This homeowner's garage was starting to bow inward.  She called Woods Basement System and had one of System Design Specialist come out and look at her house.  Christopher Blickenstaff explained that wall anchors would be able to straighten out these walls and restore her property value.  After having these installed, she found that she was very satisfied with the job that was done.

Push Pier Installation in St. Louis, MO

A resident of St. Louis, MO was noticing signs of a foundation problem both inside and outside his house.  There were stair-step cracks in the outside brick walls, and the vertical cracks were wider, indicating that the wall was rotating outward.  Also, some of the windows were separating from the framing and had cracks extending from the corners.  Inside the home, there were cracks in the drywall that followed the seams.

Foundation SupportWorks by Woods Basement Systems installed Push Piers around the outside perimeter of the home.  Push piers cause minimal disturbance from installation and have a quick installation time compared to other solutions.  The resident was very pleased with the work done by Woods and can now have peace of mind with his home.
