Urbana, Illinois homeowner Becky was concerned about hte horizontal cracks in her basement walls. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Greg B. determined the perfect solution.
Foreman Kevin J. and his crew installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to fix Becky's walls. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were the perfect choice because they can return the wall to its original position. This will close the crakcs and prevent furture ones from forming.
The cracks are caused by the pressure of the active soil and water around the house wanting to fill the hole that is the basement. The walls give in overtime causing bowing and leading to cracks and gaps.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors fight against this by using the Earth behind the active soil line. A steel plate is buried in the ground and a steel rod is drilled through an interior anchor, the foundation wall, and into the soil until it is attached in the anchor plate.
Becky can now enjoy her basement knowing it will be stable for decades to come.
This Urbana, Illinois homeowner Tom had cracks in the walls of his basement and exterior of the home. He decided to give Woods Basement Systems a call to see what the best solution would be. From there, Team Woods' system design specialist, Greg B., developed the most ideal plan as a solution.
Foreman Kevin and his crew installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are steel rods that are drilled through the foundation wall and past the active soil line. They use the earth in order to provide the resistance the walls need to keep the dirt and water out.
Tom can now enjoy his basement and trust it is going to remain stable and dry.
This Decatur, Illinois homeowner's basement walls were full of large cracks and were slightly bowing inward. The owner was very concerned that these cracks might eventually cause a wall collapse, and he was eager to take care of the issue. A Woods Basement Systems team supported the walls by installing several PowerBrace I-beams. These galvanized steel supports are incredibly strong, totally preventing further cracking and bowing. These walls are now secured for the life of the structure.
Over the years, several of these Mt. Vernon, Illinois basement's walls had become badly cracked. The homeowner worried that, if left unchecked, this damage might eventually cause a total wall collapse. In order to reinforce the walls and put the homeowner's mind at ease, a Woods Basement Systems team installed several GeoLock wall supports. These work by connecting heavy anchors buried in the firm soil far from the home to steel plates affixed to the interior surface of the damaged walls, effectively pulling them outward and straightening them over time.
Basement water leaks can present quite a problem if the homeowner uses the space for food or valuables storage. Moisture is very bad for clothing, wood, and other storage container materials. This Hoyleton, Illinois homeowner was experiencing issues with water running down his walls and pooling on the floor, and he called Woods Basement Systems for help. A Woods team first installed under-floor WaterGuard drains at the base of the leaking walls to catch any and all water and prevent it from making it onto the floor. To finish, a CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed over a large portion of the walls to seal out moisture and prevent mold growth. Just look at the difference!
Foundation walls are subject to pressure as the ground around them shrinks and expands. This expansion can press against basement walls and cause them to bow inward which makes them lose their structural integrity. This can be particularly problematic around windows, where the wall is weaker and there is less space for other, larger support systems.
Fortunately, Woods Basement Systems has the perfect support system for this job. GeoLock™ wall anchors. This system supports the wall by burying a plate outside and connecting it with a plate inside. The two plates work together to pull the wall into a straight and supported position which can permanently strengthen the wall. Plus, this system can be installed around obstacles like pipes, wires or, in this case, windows.
This home in Carlyle, IL is permanently strengthened and supported with minimal disruption to the space.
This Springfield, Illinois homeowner was having issues with water coming in from behind some wooden paneling in his basement. Because he used the space as a work area, the constant leaks were a big problem for him.

The sump pump is the most important part of any basement waterproofing system.

Matt of Belleville, Illinois needed a solution to strengthen and support the water damaged basement walls. For repair, Team Woods installed Geo-Lock wall anchors to regain stability in the water damaged home.
Geo-Locks are a permanent anchoring system solution that pulls the wall back into its original position. These anchors are made out of galvanized steel and can be tightened over time if needed. Thanks to the combined effort of Team Woods, Matt couldn't be happier with his repaired space.
Because concrete-block foundation walls feature dozens of seams and individual pieces, they are particularly susceptible to cracking and bowing. If left unaddressed, cracks can grow very large, leading to water issues and threatening total wall collapse. Because of this, it is very important to take action as soon as wall damage is noticed. A Woods Basement Systems team installed several PowerBrace beam supports in this Bethalto, Illinois basement to support the walls and prevent further cracking and bowing.
This Granite City, Illinois homeowner was having issues with severe wall cracks in his basement. He was concerned that, if left unchecked, the walls may eventually fall in.

This Alton, Illinois basement had experienced water seeping through the wall's cracks after heavy rains and desperately needed a permanent solution. Woods Basement Systems was able to restore the basement by installing a TwinPack sump pump, a CleanSpace encapsulation system, and a WaterGuard draining system. Now, this basement is safe and clean!
Over time, pressure coming from the soil around the foundation often leads to cracks. This is especially true with concrete-block foundation walls. Because the wall is made of individual pieces rather than one solid slab, cracks form at the joints between blocks. These cracks often lead to water leaks and put the home at risk for total wall collapse. This was the case for this Millstadt, Illinois home, and the owner called Woods Basement Systems for help. A Woods team installed several GeoLock wall supports along the cracking walls, connecting steel plates to heavy anchors buried deep in the firm soil away from the foundation to support the wall and effectively pull it outward over time.
Kara G. of St. Louis, Missouri had a leak in her basement, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a solution. Systems design specialist, Pete L. recommended installing a Twin Pack sump pump and WaterGuard.
Foreman, Kevin J. installed the products. The Twin pack sump pump includes two stainless steel pumps for extra protection. WaterGuard is a perimeter drainage system, meaning it is installed around the floor of the basement and it collects water that seeps through the walls. It then takes the collected water and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
Now Kara G. has a dry basement.
Several of this St. Louis, Missouri home's basement walls were badly cracked and damaged due to years of outside soil pressure.

System Design Specialist Bill C. developed the perfect plan to get their basement humidity down and odor-free.
Foreman Kevin J. and his crew installed CleanSpace vapor barrier on the walls and WaterGuard around the perimeter. The CleanSpace used on the walls will collect any water vapor that makes it through the porous walls. Instead of evaporating into the basement, it will now be caught and redirected to the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard will collect the water and take it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
Joe and Jill can now enjoy a dry basement.
