In Palestine, Illinois homeowner Jenny M. was concerned about the well-being of her home. Lately, she had noticed cracks forming around her home on the walls of her basement. She was unsure of what was causing it and wanted to solve the problem before it became worse. After talking to friends and family, she made a call to Woods Basement Systems.
Our foreman Jose Lorenzana has over 15 years of experience fixing foundation problems just like the one in Jenny’s home. Jose and his team installed PushPiers underneath the footing of the home to lift and stabilize the walls of the foundation, in many cases lifting the home back to its original position. This solution will close cracks and stop the formation of new ones. Homeowner Jenny was pleased with the work done by the Woods Basement Systems team and now refers family and friends to the company when they have a problem in their basement.
David G. of Ridge Farm, Illinois discovered that his home's basement was holding water after heavy rain showers. He did not want to have to continuously pump out the water, so he called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.
Design specialist Gregory B. assessed the situation and decided that the best option was to install a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system. Foreman Mason S. then headed to the home to get the job started.
The Waterguard drainage system, pictured above, was placed above the footing of the basement. It collects any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the basement surface. It then drains the water to the sump pump.
David G. no longer has to worry about water entering his home's basement. He now has a dry and waterproof home.
After the snow melted outside, this basement experienced water leaks inside. Without any means of waterproofing inside, water damaged developed on the floor and walls. Team Woods provided protection by installing a new TripleSafe sump pump system with WaterGuard drains to keep water out of the basement for good.
This Westville, Illinois sump pump was outdated and inefficient. Woods Basement Systems installed a new sump pump with a battery backup. The battery backup means that even if the power goes out during a storm the sump pump will continue to run and keep water from filling the basement. Woods Basement Systems also offers several other waterproofing options to ensure that water nevers makes it inside the home.
This homeowner was concerned about poor drainage causing water damage in their home. Design Specialist Greg B. from Woods Basement Systems inspected the area and recommended the ideal solution for their waterproofing problems.
Foreman Josh B. and his team installed WaterGuard drains to remove water from the home. WaterGuard is a French drain system that's installed under the floor slab for effective drainage without clogs or an unsightly appearance.
