  • Beautiful RockWell Egress Window in St. Louis, MO
    Beautiful RockWell Egress Window in St. Louis, MO


    Customer, Karen of St. Louis, Missouri had an egress window in her basement that let in very little natural light and had exposed pipes on the outside near the widow due to soil settlement. So, she decided to call Woods Basement Systems and system design specialist, Mike A. developed a solution to fix her former window. He recommended the RockWell Egress window.

     Foreman, Miguel O. installed the window. A RockWell egress window provides the homeowner with a window that lets in more light and is appealing to the eye. Additionally, it is used as a safe emergency exit.

     Now Karen C. can enjoy her bright basement.

  • Pool Patio Leveling in Maryland Heights, MO
    Pool Patio Leveling in Maryland Heights, MO

    Maryland Heights, Missouri homeowner Tom needed the patio around his pool to be leveled to increase the safety of the area for his family and friends. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Mike developed a plan for him. 

    Foreman Mason and his crew injected PolyLevel under the patio for Tom. The PolyLevel is a light weight, quick settling solution to concrete slab settling. Within hours it is ready to walk on again and the PolyLevel will not wash out or cause more settling over time. 

    Tome can now enjoy his pool knowing the area is no longer a trip hazard and looks nicer.
