This home in Altamont, IL. was experiencing water leaks through the tiny gap between the foundation walls and the floor. Although they had a sump pump to remove water in the home, the homeowners needed a perimeter drainage system to collect the leaks and direct them to the sump pump.


The best system for them was WaterGuard™. WaterGuard™ is a specially designed perimeter drainage system that gets installed directly on top of the footing just beneath the floor. Because it is on top of the footing, WaterGuard™ stays clear of the mud that surrounds the footing. Since it is out of the mud, WaterGuard™ doesn't need filter fabrics, which can clog and make other systems ineffective over time. WaterGuard™ will collect water as it rises above the footing, redirecting it to the sump pump before it can rise above the surface of the floor.


WaterGuard™ was installed along the walls around the existing sump pump and drained into the sump pit. This way, WaterGuard™ was able to work with existing waterproofing systems to keep the basement dry and protected.

Fast and Effective Concrete Lifting and Leveling

The major flaw of concrete is that the ground that it was poured on top of will inevitably shift and sink over time. In the states of Illinois and Missouri sinking concrete is all too common which is why our company has gone to great lengths to develop fast and effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions. PolyLevel is a revolutionary product that is minimally invasive and not only lifts and levels concrete but also stabilizes it.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. After only about 15 minutes the polymer is dry and the concrete is ready to be walked and even driven on.

This concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster, less disruptive, and arguably more effective than mud jacking, which is the standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways
