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. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab, then the PolyLevel polymer is poured into the holes. 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 procedure PolyLevel replaces. To removed tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

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

Job Stories From Olney, IL
Total Basement Finish in Olney, IL Basement

Olney, Illinois homeowner Greg knew it was time to update his basement. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and Brandon B. developed the perfect basement for Greg's needs. 

Foreman John C. and his crew installed EverLast Wall System, Cut Finished Walls, and Thermal Dry Elite flooring. They also installed the CleanSpace Wall Systema and WaterGuard for added water protection. 

Our Total Basement Finish systems add more than just looks to your basement. They are designed to provide protection against water as well as provide energy savings. They are made of inorganic materials to fight against mold spores being able to root and grow.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Olney, IL

A local business in Olney, Illinois was having issues with water entering the crawl space. The business owner did not want to have to worry about rotting or mold growth in the crawl space, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

Design specialist Brenton K. assessed the situation and decided the best solution was to install a CleanSpace encapsulation system, a SmartSump sump pump, a SmartPipe drainage system, and a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. Foreman James L. then headed to the home to get the job started.

The CleanSpace encapsulation system is a durable liner that is placed on the floor and up the walls of the crawl space. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks behind it. The SmartPipe accepts water from both the soil and the surface of the crawl space. It then drains the water to the sump pump. The SmartSump is a sump pump made specifically for crawl spaces. It removes water from the crawl space through a discharge line. Finally, the SaniDry XP is a dehumidifier that not only removes water vapor, but also removes pollen, dust, mold spores, and other allergens.

The business owner no longer has to worry about water collecting in his business's crawl space. The crawl space is now dry and waterproof.

Geo-Lock, TripleSafe, and Waterguard in Olney, IL

The soil around the home of Bob Davis' Olney, IL began to show signs of bowing and bending. The walls of his basement developed several different lateral and vertical cracks that are products of the severe pressure from the outside soil.

System design specialist John K. designed a solution to restore Bob's home. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed. TripleSafe was then equipped with a main pump, backup pump, and battery-powered pump to ensure the basement stays dry. Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain water out of the basement.

CleanSpace and SaniDry in Olney, Illinois

Olney, Illinois homeowner Tim H. was distraught by his wet, musty crawl space. The crawl space was riddled with mold.

System design specialist Brenton K. designed a solution. 

Foreman Brad P. installed the SmartPipe and SmartPump systems to waterproof the crawl space. The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system was installed as well. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier, so it keeps moisture and mold out of the crawl space. To further prevent mold, the SaniDry energy-efficient dehumidifier was installed.

Wet Crawl Space in Olney, IL

Olney, IL resident, Jerry, owned an older home that was built in 1973.  After noticing his crawl space was very wet, he searched the internet for solutions.  Coming across Woods Basement Systems, he scheduled a free consultation with system design specialist, David McDaniel.

David found a lot of issues in the crawl space.  Jerry’s sump pump was outdated, the humidity was out of control, and water was seeping in through his foundation.  Luckily, as a certified dealer for the Basement Systems International network, Woods had access to advanced products and methods to fix Jerry’s issues.  Jerry scheduled a crew to fix his basement the following month.

It took two days for foreman Robert Korte and his team to install the CleanSpace Liner, a SmartDrain, the SaniDry dehumidifier, and the SmartSump sump pump.  Jerry’s crawl space is now dry & safeguarded for many years to come.

Basement Rain Puddles Resolved in Olney, IL

Tina & Cecil’s basement started to accumulate puddles when it rained.  In fear that it would get worse, they called Woods Basement Systems after being referred by a friend.  System design specialist, Aaron Moore met with them on May 16, 2014 for a free consultation.

Aaron thoroughly assessed the area and discussed with Cecil & Tina their options.  The water was entering through the floor and wall, as well as through some foundation cracks.  They decided the innovative WaterGuard System be the best solution as well as the most affordable. 

A couple weeks later, foreman Jaylon Orban and his crew installed the system.  They are now equipped with a drainage system that acts as an interior French drain.  It is effectively capturing wall & floor seepage and directing it to their sump pump, rather than accumulating in puddles on their floor.    

Basement Dehumidifier In Olney, IL

Olney residents, Sally & Robert had a very humid basement.  Because it was a large space, they were not sure what kind of dehumidifier would be able to work for them.  A friend referred them to Woods Basement Systems and they set up a free consultation with representative, Robert Millerbaugh.

After a thorough assessment, Millerbaugh suggested the innovative SaniDry XP dehumidifier.  The couple appealed to this products because it was specially made for large spaces, and it was very powerful yet energy efficient.  They scheduled the installation for the following month.

The installation by foreman Matthew Turner and his crew took a single day.  The product contains a hose drain directing the water to their sump pump.  Today, they are enjoying their basement and no longer have to worry about uncomfortable humidity.

I have had a Woods Basement Systems rep. come and do an estimate several years ago. I am dealing with a divorce situation since and am trying to update the estimate. I also have a question: The estimate seemed to deal with stabilizing the basement walls and installing an interior drainage system (French Drain, I believe). Is there anything in the estimates regarding the sealing of wall cracks and stopping the leakage through the walls? Just trying to understand the estimates. Thank you -- Greg Downes
