Sinking Sidewalk Leveling in St. Louis, MO

Sinking Sidewalk Leveling in St. Louis, MO

Before After
Sinking Sidewalk Leveling in St. Louis, MO Sinking Sidewalk Leveling in St. Louis, MO

The real culprit behind any foundation or slab settlement problem is the underlying soil.  For example, a void had developed beneathe this concrete sidewalk and porch slab in St. Louis, Missouri.  This was likely due to a downspout that used to dump water right beside the porch.  Over time, the water pooling beside the porch slab and sidewalk eroded the soil and created a void beneath them.

Woods Basement Systems injected PolyLEVEL under the sidewalk slab and porch to fill the void and raise the concrete sidewalk.  The crew was able to level the sidewalk, and they took care to seal the joints in the sidewalk as well.  The homeowners were able to walk on the newly-raised sidewalk instantly.

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.

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.

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 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.


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! 

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.

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.
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!

Our basement developed a leak about a month ago. It is incredibly slow and has only happened twice in spite of all of the rain we've had. We have a flower bed on the outside of the house that goes up the wall by about 3 feet and we think that is where the water is coming from but would love for one of your inspectors to come out and give his opinion on it. Thank you.
