Trusted Basement Waterproofing in Saint Louis, MO

Woods Basement Systems, Inc. is your local contractor that for all your basement, crawl space, and foundation repair needs! We've been proudly serving Illinois and Missouri since 1986 and our friendly staff are ready to work with you to find a solution for your repair problems. Our trained technicians use only high quality materials to ensure that your project is done right and will last for years to come. 

Issues with waterproofing in a basement can stem from a number of sources including leaky pipes, wet soil, or even sump pump failures. Even seemingly small things like a musty odor or condensation can be indicators of a bigger problem. When moisture and water is left alone in a basement, that becomes a breeding ground for mold and mildew. 

Symptoms of a waterproofing problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor
  • Leaking or damp basement walls 
  • Pooling or standing water
  • Crystaline deposit on concrete surfaces
  • Musy odors
  • Condensation
  • Sump pump issues
  • Leaky basement windows

Our technicians are equipped with the tools to help fix you waterproofing problems. The IceGuard discharge line system provides an escape route for water that is away from the foundations of the house in the even that the sump pump discharge lines freeze or become clogged. We also offer energy efficient and low profile dehumidifiers to keep your basement free from humidity and moisture as well as be energy-efficient. The EverLast insulated wall panels work to seal moisture, bugs, and humidity out of your basement. In addition, they are mold resistant, strong, do no need paint, and are very stylish. 

Expert Foundation Repairs and Concrete Lifting

Disrepair in a foundation can have many warning signs and it seem like a daunting thing to fix. When walls and floors become cracked, walls bow and lean, or the floor sinks in a bit, it's time to call in professional help to correct the problem. Our expert technicians use high quality products and methods like I-Beam wall brace and wall anchors to permanently correct bowing and leaning walls. In addition, we also use jack posts and foundation and slab piers to fix floors that sink into soil that can no longer support it. 

Having a sinking slab of concrete can become a hazard as well as a nuisance - remedying it by removing the entire slab can be even more of a headache and cause you more trouble than is necessary. Using the PolyLevel Concrete Leveling System, you can repair sinking, cracked concrete without replacing the whole slab, saving you money. PolyLevel uses an injection hole the size of a penny, takes only 15 minutes, and weighs only 2 pounds per square inch. This cost-effective alternative is more minimally invasive to your home and provides a lasting, permanent solution to your concrete lifting problems. 

Saint Louis, MO Crawl Space Repairs 

A part of the house that is seldom thought of, a house's crawl space can cause monumental problems if left in disrepair. Crawl space issues have different warning signs such as a musty smell, sinking or sagging floors, and condensation. The best way to get in front of a crawl space problem is to install a professional grade sump pump. This will stop water from collecting which will prevent mold and mildew growth. 

Another way to help ensure a safer, dryer crawl space is to install vapor barrier insulation. This energy efficient insulation keeps moisture and bugs out and helps your crawl space become a more healthy, dry area of your home. Additionally, a dehumidifier will work in tangent with the sump pump and thermal insulation to maintain a humidity-free environment in the crawl space. This keeps the area from leaking out heat or cold from the house.

Job Stories From Saint Louis, MO
Finished Basement Waterproofed in St. Louis, MO

Michael and Laura O of St. Louis, MO had a partially finished basement that was continuously being flooded each time it rained. They were using fans to dry areas where they kept closets of clothing and gym equipment. It was obvious in the unfinished areas that the wood framing was beginning to rot after repeated water damage. They’d had a different company install a sump pump system but it was clearly not working so they called Woods Basements Systems. Design Specialist Nolan M. inspected the basement and found that a full perimeter waterproofing system would take care of their water issue.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors, on top of the concrete footing along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that is positioned in a way that it sits away from any mud that may clog it as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump for removal.

The TripleSafe Sump Pump System replaced Michael and Laura’s non-functioning sump pump. The TripleSafe contains two powerful pumps to ensure that, even in severe downpours, water will be pumped out and away from the basement through the discharge lines.

Michael and Laura O. now have peace of mind that their belongings are safe in their basement because it will stay dry.

Waterproofing System Keeps Finished Basement Dry in St. Louis, MO

Chris Q. of St. Louis, MO was having issues with water leaking into his finished basement. The water was coming in behind his wood panelling, staining the walls and soaking his carpet. Chris didn’t want to deal with damp carpet anymore so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the inside and outside of the basement and recommended a full perimeter waterproofing system.


Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors, against the walls of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that won’t be clogged by mud because it’s situated on the concrete footing of the basement. It collects water coming into the basement from the walls and wall joints and drains it away to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed as well. It takes the water collected from the WaterGuard and pumps it out of the basement through the discharge lines using its three powerful pumps, including a battery back up pump. The battery back up pump ensures encroaching water will continue to be pumped out of the basement even in a power outage. On the exterior of the home, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. If the discharge lines become frozen, the IceGuards allows the water to escape through its openings so it won’t come back into the basement.

Chris Q. is thrilled that his basement and belongings will stay dry even during heavy downpours.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and PowerBraces installed in St. Louis, MO

The foundation walls of Chris R.’s St. Louis, MO home were bulging inward. There were numerous cracks extending across the walls and Chris kept trying to patch them but new ones kept forming. Chris was worried that his walls might give out if he left them any longer so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Thomas W. inspected the inside and outside of Chris’s foundation and found that the best solution for the bulging walls would be to install Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and PowerBraces.

Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along two of Chris’s walls. Earth anchors are embedded in the yard and then connected to galvanized steel anchors rods that have been driven through the foundation walls and attached to steel wall plates on the inside of the walls. The anchor rods are tightened to permanently stabilize foundation walls and prevent further progression of walls. In most cases, the walls can also be straightened.

Along a third wall, PowerBraces were installed. PowerBraces can be installed in areas where the yard is inaccessible for wall anchors to be installed. Steel beams are fit snugly against the bowing and cracking walls using steel brackets attached to the concrete floors and floor joists. They halt the wall for moving any further and prevent future damage. They are adjustable so they can be tightened during dry periods for the opportunity to improve the wall.

Chris R. has peace of mind that his foundation walls are stable and safe from further damage.

Crawlspace Encapsulated in St. Louis, MO

The crawlspace in Charles and Karla K.’s home in St. Louis, MO was completely unusable. Water seeped into it every time it rained and created a perfect environment for mold to grow on the walls. Charles and Karla were tired of having to deal with a wet crawlspace so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Adam R. thoroughly assessed the inside and outside of the crawlspace and gave them a detailed solution for exactly what needed to be done to fix their problem.

Foreman James L. encapsulated the crawlspace with CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a thick plastic liner which keeps moisture and pests from getting into the crawlspace. Drainage matting was installed along the floor under the CleanSpace. Drainage matting is dimpled and creates channels for standing water within the crawlspace to be directed to the drainage system in place around the perimeter of the crawlspace.

SmartPipe was installed against the foundation walls and in the dirt floor of the crawlspace. SmartPipe collects any water coming from the floor or walls through drainage holes that are covered with special filter fabric that keeps mud out and prevents the drainage system from clogging. It drains the water in collects to the sump pump.

The SmartSump sump pump was installed. It is specifically designed to work with the CleanSpace vapor barrier. It also has a water WaterWatch alarm to alert if water is in the crawlspace. It pumps unwanted water safely to the yard through the discharge line. An IceGuard was installed on the exterior of the crawlspace on the discharge line. In the event that the discharge line becomes frozen or clogged, the IceGuard keeps water from coming back into the crawlspace by allowing it to escape through its slotted holes.

A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to keep relative humidity low within the crawlspace. By keeping moisture out of the air, the SaniDry further prevents mold growth which can cause musty smells.

Charles and Karla K. are thrilled that their crawlspace can now be used for storage without any worries about water damaging their belongings.

Front porch and pathway leveled in St. Louis, MO

Chris and Meghan K. of St. Louis, MO had a front porch that was sinking and pulling away from the house which was causing cracks to form. Their pathway was also sinking which made it uneven. They wanted to keep both from becoming tripping hazards so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist David D. inspected the porch and pathway and recommended PolyLevel as the solution.

Our production crew installed PolyLevel under the porch and pathway. PolyLevel is a waterproof polymer foam that is injected through small holes in the concrete. The foam quickly expands which lifts and levels the concrete back to its original position and then hardens to stabilize the concrete. It’s a more permanent solution than traditional mudjacking and the concrete is usable again in about 15 minutes so there’s less downtime as well.

Chris and Meghan K. have the peace of mind knowing their porch and pathway are both stable and will no longer be a hazard.

Water Damage in St. Louis

Water finds it way under foundation to caskets

Even the dead hate being wet, this week the Jay B Smith Funeral Home had their basement installed with the WaterGuard system as well as having their sump pump fitted with IceGuard discharge to better pump water even when it’s cold outside.  The products that the Jay B Smith Funeral Home had purchased were recommended for their water leakage problem due to that the water was finding its way under the foundation turning the basement floor into a pool.  Woods took action and came out to install all these systems.

The first things we did when we started the job was inspect where all of the trenches will be dug and how ide in order to put in the WaterGuard System. Pick axes, jack hammers, and trench shovels were brought in to begin the excavation process. Trenches were dug around the perimeter of the basement and cleaned out. Gravel rocks were poured down on top of the footing that would later be used as the base of the WaterGuard System. After gravel had been laid down in the trenches, the WaterGuard system was measured and cut to the precise amount where it would lay on top of the footing. The final thing that had to be done for the WaterGuard System was to concrete it in and install the inspection where you can check to make sure that its working correctly.

The original water that was sitting in the basement was pumped out using the sump pump originally in the basement that was checked and re-fitted in the hole. Outside holes were drilled in the poured sidewall in order for the PVC pipes that would connect to the sump pump to the outside with the IceGuard discharge on the ends to prevent freezing in winter weather.

In the end, the water had vanished from the floor at which it was making home and any further water coming from the foundation would now be drained through the WaterGuard System to  the sump pump. What was once a wet basement is now a dry place in which that can store whatever they need. If you or anyone you know need waterproofing or basement work done, give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems.

Waterproofing and Total Basement Finishing

Push Pier and WaterGuard

Push-Pier and WaterGuard

This week Randy and Carol called us here at Woods Basement Systems with the problem of their home had moved from the original location at which it was settled at when they had first moved in. They also had an issue with water coming in through the footer of their pored wall. We sent a representative to come out and address the issue and he had asked them what it is they wanted to do with this problem and we gave our professional advice on what we could do to fix this problem once and for all. In the end we came to needed Push Piers being put in as well as WaterGuard.

Now, you might be wondering what in the world are Push Piers and WaterGuard. Well, it’s a steel driver that is drive deep into the bedrock or any other stable soil layer around your home. They have the option to be driven from both the insider outside of the home and will lift back towards the original location closing cracks and improving door and window operations.  Now that we had all the information we just had to start the job up. WaterGuard sits ¾ inch gap from that of the stone/poured wall and the floor allowing flawless wall drainage, it requires no such filter fabric; has a large outlet to run directly to your sump pump and it will not cause any such damage to your house's foundation integrity.

The first thing we did was remove any soil from the area where the piers are going to be driven. With this home, piers previously had to first be removed as they has rusted and oxidized over years of being in the ground. One all the piers had be removed we came in with a heavy-duty steel bracket which was installed aginst the footing g of the foundation. These steel pier are hydraulically driven rough the bracket and into the soil. Next, the weight of the house is transferred through the piers to competent soil below and a life can be attempted to bring the home back to its original position. Once the house is back to its location, the soil is backfilled and the home is now stabilized in its position. The last thing we had to do was put in the WaterGuard drainage pipe. We laid the pipe right in a canal of bedrock a few inches out from the wall modified for this specific home and placed a plastic wall covers to where the water would flow onto it and into the WaterGuard pipe. Then can attached it up to the Sump Pump, laid a layer of concrete over the top to seal up and that is it.

All in all, Randy and Carol are amazed with the job that we did in their basement as said “looks and feels better new then ever.” Now that the push pier have been put in, their house can sit back at its original location and with the WaterGuard water will no longer creep into their basement, but be pump right on outside with the sump pump. If you are a homeowner who needs basement work done or would like your basement inspected, give us a call at Woods Basement Systems where we want to keep your basement dry all the time.

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.

     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!

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!
