Wade K. noticed that new cracks and separations had formed in the foundation walls in his Springfield, IL home. The cracks were allowing water to get in and Wade K. was worried about the safety of his home’s structure so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods inspected the foundation and recommended installing Push Piers.
Woods installed the Push Piers along the concrete footing on the inside of the home. Push Piers are made of galvanized steel sections that are hydraulically driven through steel brackets down into competent, load-bearing soil or bedrock. They transfer the weight of the home from the unstable soil conditions responsible for the settlement to the competent soil or bedrock. The piers are then attached to the concrete footing with the steel brackets to permanently stabilize the foundation. In many cases, Push Piers can also lift the home back to level position.
Germantown, Illinois homeowner Marvin was worried about water in his basement. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call. System Design Specialist Sam W. determined the perfect solution for Marvin was the WaterGuard system.
Foreman Jose L. and his crew installed the Waterguard system for Marvin. A partial WaterGuard on the problem walls was the perfect solution because unlike other drainage systems, WaterGuard will never clog. It is specially designed with holes in the back to receive water from beneath, behind, and down the walls as it leaks through the gaps made when the foundation is originally poured.
WaterGuard collects the water and redirects it to the sump pump, where it is pumped away from the home, ending the cycle.
With a partial WaterGuard, we can come back anytime and install the remaining perimeter, if needed.
Marvin can now rest assured his family's belongings are safe an dry in his basement.
Customer, Jennifer from Highland, Illinois had flooding issues in her basement after heavy rains. To prevent any further flooding she called Woods Basement Systems to see what could be done.

Foreman, Jose L., installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump is guaranteed to keep your basement dry with its primary pump, secondary pump, and a battery back-up pump. The WaterGuard system collects water as it seeps through the basement walls, guides it to the sump pump, and out of the home. The IceGuard is placed on the outside of the home and is there to allow water to escape the sump pump discharge line in case the pipes freeze or clog, instead of going down into the basement.
Now, Jennifer T. can sleep easy, knwoing she will hava a dry basement when it rains.

An Enclosed Basement Window Well that replaced the rusty metal one is sealed to the foundation so that nothing gets inside of it.
Covering the sump pump pit with a solid cover is a good idea. Having the sump pump closed prevents water vapor from escaping and raising the humidity level in the basement. Our SuperSump® sump pump, like the one installed in this Glen Carbon, Illinois home, closes the top with a very sturdy lid, gaskets around the power cord and discharge pipe and has a built-in properly functioning drain.

Water kept getting into the finished basement of Miranda B.’s Columbia, IL home so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Woods recommended a waterproofing system to deal with the unwanted water.
Woods installed WaterGuard as part of the waterproofing system. As shown in the pictures, WaterGuard is a drainage system that is installed underneath the foundation floors, on top of the concrete footing of the home. It is situated out of the way of mud that may clog it as it collects unwanted water from the walls and floors of the basement and drains it away to the sump pump for removal. TrenchDrains can also be seen in the pictures.
