This Decatur, IL business owner was getting tired of his old, dirt crawlspace and how it was easily accessible for unwanted water and animals to enter. He contacted Woods Basement Systems for his free estimate and found that a CleanSpace encapsulation system is exactly what he needs. This 20-mil-thick material that covers the dirt crawlspace creates a barrier from the outside environment and reduces humidity levels. With the addition of our SmartSump sump pump and SaniDry CX dehumidifier the crawlspace is guaranteed to stay dry.
This Decatur business now has a clean, brand-new looking crawlspace that they can use as they please.

Sean reached out to Woods Basement Systems to get a professional's recommendation on a permanent waterproofing plan. Upon recommendation, Team Woods installed WaterGuard drains and CleanSpace on the walls.

Concrete settlement is a common problem that causes other problems like trip hazards, pooling water against foundations, and unsightly cracks in concrete. This porch in Mascoutah, Illinois had settled more than 2 inches, demonstrated by the gap between the concrete slab and the brick border.
Woods Basement Systems installed PolyLEVEL—a structural grade polymer—under the concrete slab to raise the slab back to a level position, and the difference is clear. PolyLEVEL is injected into the void beneathe concrete slabs, fills the void, and the polyurethane's expanding properties allow for an accurate lift.
Mudjacking settling concrete slabs can get very messy. For example, large, unsightly holes must be drilled in the concrete prior to mudjacking. The grout being installed can spew out of the holes in the slab as it's being installed. Ultimately, mudjacking adds weight to the underlying soil, can erode or wash out, and takes days to cure.
PolyLEVEL, on the other hand, requires minimal disruption and boasts an impressively quick cure time—a concrete slab can be driven on 15 minutes after installation! This patio in Mascoutah, Illinois was able to be repaired and used by the homeowners the very same day. The material is waterproof and will never wash out. As a high-capacity, expansive polymer, PolyLEVEL can lift even heavy loads such as stoops and slab foundations.
The crack and settling wedge of this Granite City, Illinois foundation was caused by a waterproofing system (BOX Drain Tile) that let mud and water get into the sump pump and overtime undermined the footing holding up that wedge of concrete. We installed a push pier to close the gap.
This angle shows how a retaining wall dividing an upper loading dock and a lower parking lot at Des Peres Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri was failing. The concrete wall was temporarily braced by supports while the hospital sought after a contractor to repair the wall and prevent it from collapsing.
Woods Basement Systems installed 12 Foundation Supportworks Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to straighten and stabilize the retaining wall. The dock side of the wall was excavated first, and then supporting anchor rods were driven from the parking lot side of the wall, through the retaining wall, and beyond the active wedge. The crew dug holes in the dock lot, so earth anchors could be attached.
Then, wall anchor plates were installed on the face of the retaining wall and tightened to the anchor rods. After the wall was straightened, stabilized, and backfilled, the temporary supports were removed, and the lot was ready to be re-finished. Now, the loading dock and parking lot are fully operational.

Kirkwood, Missouri small business owner Peter S. was concerned when he discovered water leaking into the basement where the floor meets the wall. The water risked creating a musty environment. Thankfully, he took action before mold began to grow. System design specialist Tim W. designed a solution to keep the basement dry.
Foreman Ryan L. and his crew began waterproofing the basement by installting WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system. WaterGuard collects and guides water to the TripleSafe sump pump system. TripleSafe is equipped with a main pump, backup pump and battery-powered pump to ensure the basement stays dry. In addition to WaterGuard and TripleSafe, IceGuard was installed. IceGuard is attached to the external discharge lines and provides an exit for water in the event that the lines become frozen or clogged.
Peter is pleased to know that his basement is dry and will stay dry. He can sleep soundly knowing there will be no water leaks or mold.
Terry of O'Fallon, Missouri had large vertical and horizontal cracks on his basement walls along with a side of the house sliding off the foundation about three to four inches. With these being signs of a settling foundation, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Timothy W. was able to find a solution and recommended Geo-Lock wall anchors to be installed.
Foreman, Jeremy R. installed the wall anchors. Geo-Lock wall anchors are made of galvanized steel and are connected by rods. They are embedded into the stable soil away from the home and can be tighten during dry seasons. The anchors are used to permanently stabilize foundation walls and can, in most cases, pull walls back into their original position.
So, now Terry P. can rest easy knowing he has a stable foundation.
