Concrete settlement is a common problem that causes other problems like trip hazards, pooling water against foundations, and unsightly cracks in concrete.  This porch in Mascoutah, Illinois had settled more than 2 inches, demonstrated by the gap between the concrete slab and the brick border.

Woods Basement Systems installed PolyLEVEL—a structural grade polymer—under the concrete slab to raise the slab back to a level position, and the difference is clear.  PolyLEVEL is injected into the void beneathe concrete slabs, fills the void, and the polyurethane's expanding properties allow for an accurate lift.

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

Replacing an Old Sump Pump

This old sump pump from a house in Mascoutah, IL. was due for an upgrade. That's why Devan B. from Woods Basement systems relpaced the old sump pump with a new TripleSafe™ unit.


The TripleSafe™ is a sump pump system that features three seperate pumps. The first pump can complete the majority of pumping, while a second pump can turn on to help the first during heavy rains or other high-water conditions. A third, battery powered pump can kick in when the power goes out to ensure that the basement doesn't flood when the other pumps can't operate. 


Even the container that surrounds the TripleSafe™ system is specially designed. The liner has small holes in the construction that allow the TripleSafe™ to collect water from the ground around the pit, as well as from a perimeter drainage system or other waterproofing systems. The lid on the TripleSafe™ is air-tight, preventing any water in the sump pit from evaporating into the basement. Even though it is air tight, the lid also features a special floor drain that allows water to enter the sump pit from above the floor without letting any water or water vapor escape. An alarm also sits inside the lid, monitoring water levels in the pump as well as any water that enters the pit from above. The alarm can alert homeowners to dangerously high water levels as well as leaks from inside the basement. 


All these elements combine to make the TripleSafe™ sump pump system the best in home waterproofing protection. With three pumps and a myriad of other features, the TripleSafe™ will keep this home dry and protected better than this old pump ever could.

The Benefits of a Sedona Dehumidifier

The air in this Mascoutah, IL. basement was damp, making the air feel uncomfortably cave-like. This damp air was not only uncomfortable, but had serious implications for the health of the home as a whole.


Water vapor in the air can condense on cooler surfaces, causing water damage and feeding any mold that might be there. The damp air also supports dust mites, which are the number one indoor allergen. Air with higher moisture content is also more expensive to condition. Fortunately, all of these problems can be fixed by drawing the moisture out of the air.


Drier air will halt mold growth, reduce dust mite populations and be more easily conditioned. To achieve a comfortably dry air in this home, Cory S. installed a Sedona dehumidifer. The Sedona is capable of draining up to 100 pints of water from the air in a single day and it can do it with the same amount of energy as some 40-pint dehumidifiers. The Sedona also features an excellent air filter that can remove tiny particles like mold spores or dust mite droppings from the air.


The Sedona will prevent the spread of new mold as well as the growth of existing mold while also making the basement more comfortable. Now this home in Mascoutah is safer, more comfortable and more energy efficient than before thanks to the Sedona dehumidifier.

Leaky Basement Transformed by TwinPack, WaterGuard, & CleanSpace in Mascoutah, IL

Lynnette reached out to Woods Basement Systems to get a professional’s advice on what would repair the space.

All of these products serve a different, specific purpose. TwinPack is a sump pump that will discharge any water that leaks into the basement. WaterGuard is installed around the perimeter of the home, which collects any water that may leak in and sends that water to the sump pump to exit the home. CleanSpace is useful on basement walls to seal the wall from any leaks or mold build-up. Finally, IceGuard will an extension added to the discharge line that prevents the line from freezing or clogging.

Foreman, Greg H. and his team installed these waterproofing products in Lynnette's basement. After the installation, Lynnette was excited to enjoy her basement again!

Bowing Basement Wall Repair in Mascoutah, IL

System design specialist, Chris T. did a home inspection and created a design that would fix the issue. Foreman Jeremy R. did a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor installation.

Wet Basement In Mascoutah, IL Fixed With WaterGuard

Kevin Q. from Mascoutah, IL was having problems with water entering his basement upon a heavy rainfall. Aware of the many potential problems this could cause his home over time, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems to receive a free quote in regards to fixing his wet basement.

Systems Design Specialist Benjamin S. evaluated the situation and determined that the proper solution would be for foreman Ryan L. to install WaterGuard. WaterGuard works to push water away from the home in addition to not allowing water to reach the surface.

Radon Mitigation in Mascoutah, IL

Bradley S. of Mascoutah, Illinois decided to test his home for radon levels. When the results came back and the levels were over 4.0 picocuries per liter, he knew that he needed to call Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Phillip H. assessed the situation and decided that a radon mitigation system would solve the problem. Foreman Brett J. then traveled to the home to get the job started. 

Because high levels of radon gas are dangerous, a radon mitigation system was installed to decrease the amount of radon in the home. The mitigation system is made of a PVC pipe that runs around the home and collects the gas from the soil. The pipe then runs upwards in the house and expels the gas away from the home. 

Bradley S. no longer has to worry about breathing in the dangerous radon gas. He now has a safe home.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Mascoutah, IL

Mark Q. of Mascoutah, Illinois discovered that his crawl space was holding water. He knew that this could cause problems such as mold growth and rotting, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Thomas W. assessed the situation and decided that installing a full crawl space waterproofing system would solve all the homeowner's problem. Foreman Joshua B. headed to the home to install a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier, a SmartSump sump pump, a CleanSpace Encapsulation System, and a SmartPipe drainage system. 

The Sanidry Sedona is a dehumidifier that not only filters the air for water vapor, but also for dust, mold spores, and other allergens. The SmartSump sump pump is made specifically for crawl spaces and is lightweight and small enough to fit perfectly. It collects water and sends it outside of the crawl space through a discharge line. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System is a heavy duty liner that covers the floor and walls of the crawls space. It seals off the crawl space from the earth and prevents water from getting in. Finally, the SmartPipe drainage system accepts water from the surface and soil of the crawl space. It then drains it before the water causes any potential damage.

Mark Q. no longer has to worry about water collecting in his crawl space and causing damage. He now has a dry, clean, and waterproof crawl space.

WaterGuard Installed in Mascoutah, IL

Sandra H. of Mascoutah, IL had water leaking into her basement. She was worried about the damages this could cause to her home and personal belongings. Woods Basement Systems knew exactly what products Sandra would need to fix her problems.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

A sump pump was installed to provide escape for any unwanted water in the space. Water that may still get into the space will be pumped out through a discharge line that leads to the yard. If this line becomes frozen or backed up, IceGuard will prevent the water from receding back into the basement.
