    Ryan, Larry and Chris were the initial crew that did the new sump pit, sump pumps, discharge line and Waterguard. They were great and worked trying to get everything finished before the storms came. They didn't quite make it and today Mike and Tyler came to finish hooking up the downspout to the discharge line. Everyone was great. All polite and hardworking.

    Waterguard Installation in Paris, IL

    Wayne P. of Paris, Illinois noticed that water was collecting his home's basement every time there was a big storm. He did not want to have to keep worrying about a mess, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

    The Waterguard drainage system, pictured above, was installed above the footing of the basement. It collects any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. The water is then drained to the sump pump.

    Wayne P. no longer has to worry about water entering his home's basement. He now has a dry and waterproof basement.
