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.
Over the years, this Thayer, Illinois basement's walls had become badly cracked and begun to bow inward slightly. The homeowner was concerned that this damage would continue if left unaddressed, and was afraid of a potential wall collapse. After a call to Woods Basement Systems, a team arrived at the home and got to work installing several GeoLock wall supports. These work by attaching an anchor buried deep in the firm soil away from the foundation to a steel plate on the interior surface of the basement wall, effectively pulling the wall outward and preventing any further damage.
Jill H. of Cape Girardeau, Missouri had a leaking her basement, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a solution. Systems design specialist, Sam W. was able to recommend installing a TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard.
Foreman, Kevin J. installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump includes a primary pump, a secondary pump, and a backup battery-powered pump for three-in-one protection. WaterGuard in installed in the perimeter of the basement floor and it works to collect water that seeps through basement walls. It then guides the collected water to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
Now Jill H. has a dry basement.
Dustee of Edwardsville, Illinois struggled with damaged walls that risked the structure and overall safety of his home. Dustee gave Woods Basement Systems a call to see what his best solution would be. He spoke with system design specialist, Simba T., who customized a solution for his damaged walls. The final solution for Dustee was to use PowerBraces on the wall to bring back support and stability to a failing wall. Thankfully, now Dustee can have peace of mind knowing that with these strong, steel beams his basement will remain stable for years to come.
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.
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.
Woods Basement Systems installed WaterGuard drains into the footing of the basement walls to prevent water leaks from entering into the basement. Previously, this basement had experienced a few leaks after heavy rains. For protective measures, WaterGuard drains were used to prevent water damage that can lead to costly, long repairs.
This Oakville, Missouri basement had a history of water entering where the walls meet the floor. Tired of dealing with the cleanup, the homeowner called Woods Basement Systems. A Woods team installed a TwinPack sump pump and WaterGuard to keep the space dry. WaterGuard is a drainage system that is installed under the floor at the base of the walls to catch any and all water before piping it to a sump pump, which in this case is a TwinPack. Equipped with two seperate pumps, the TwinPack is capable of pumping out well over 10,000 gallons of water an hour.
Sump pumps are the backbone of any basement waterproofing system. It doesn't matter how efficient other measures are; if the sump pump can't keep up, then water will be an issue. This was the case for a South County homeowner. Although he had a sump pump, it simply was not doing the job. Needing quick, quality work done, he came to Woods Basement Systems. A Woods team replaced his old sump pump with a brand new TripleSafe sump system. The TripleSafe comes equipped with three individually operating pumps and is capable of pumping away well over 10,000 gallons of water per hour at an 8 foot head. Needless to say, this homeowner won't have any more issues with flooding!
Florissant, Missouri homeowner Dan needed help getting his basement dry. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Brian developed the plan for Dan.
Foreman Kevin and his crew installed the WaterGuard and TwinPack at the core of the system. The WaterGuard will collect water before it gets to the floor and redirect it to the sump pump. The TwinPack sump pump will pump water out of the home and a safe distance away so that the water cannot come back into the basement.
Dan can enjoy and use his basement that is now dry and clean.
Dustin of Bloomfield, Missouri wanted to transform his wet, musty basement after years of water leaks had stained the floor and walls. He reached out to Woods Basement Systems to get a professional's opinion on the optimal way to renovate his basement. Dustin worked alongside Sam W. who is one of Woods' top system design specialist.

Kelli of Saint Charles, Missouri has previously worked with Woods Basement Systems to restore her damaged walls in her basement.

Joe and Jill, homeowners in Bonne Terre, Missouri, were experiencing a very humid basement that was developing a smell. They had worked with Woods Basement Systems before for Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and a TripleSafe sump pump, so they gave us a call back. 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.
This homeowner from O'Fallon, Missouri wanted to waterproof his basement after noticing cracking and standing water. For this waterproofing project, Team Woods installed BrightWall panels to the basement walls along with a draining system called WaterGuard.
Narsisio of O'Fallon, Missouri wanted to waterproof his basement after Team Woods repaired the damaged walls with PowerBrace beams. He decided to schedule an appointment with Woods Basement Systems again to protect his wet basement.

WaterGuard drains were also recommended into the footing of the basement walls to collect the water leaks the panels collect and send them to the sump pump.
Mike and Shelly, O' Fallon, Missouri homeowners, were experiencing wet spots in their basement. They had worked with Woods Basement Systems before for foundation wall repair so they gave System Design Specialist Jeremy R. a call back. He developed a plan to keep their basement dry.
Foreman Kevin J. and his team installed the WaterGuard system. The waterGuard goes along the perimeter of the room and collects incoming water from below, behind, and down the wall. It is specially designed to not get clogged with mud, a common problem in most drainage piping. It will redirect the water to a sump pump, where it can be safely removed from the home.
Mike and Shelly now have a safe and dry basement they can enjoy.
O'Fallon, Missouri homeowners Mike and Shelly were experiencing a wet basement. They had worked with Woods Basement Systems before for cracks in their foundation walls. They knew just who to call and System Design Specialist Jeremy R. developed a plan to keep the basement dry.
Foreman Kevin J. and his crew installed the system, which has WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump replaced their current sump pump. It was a better option because the three pumps insure it is always dry. The primary pump works nearly constantly, the secondary pump is set higher in the tank than the primary pump. This allows it to kick on when the pump becomes overwhelmed. Since they are on separate discharge lines and circuits they work as if you had to sump pumps in the area. The third pump is a battery operated UltraSump. It will kick on when the water is way to high or when the power goes out.
The pump is airtight so the water cannot evaporate back into the basement air. It does have an opening to allow direct drainage in the case of a pipe breaking or flood. There is also alarms that go off if the water levels gets too high so you can check it before it floods.
Mike and Shelly now have a stable and dry basement they can enjoy.
