    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.

    Water can wreak havoc on a finished basement. Because leaks often come from behind drywall, they are often not noticed before lots of damage is done. Mold, soaked carpet, and mushy drywall are just some of the problems associated with a leaky finished basement. This Oran, Missouri homeowner was experiencing these exact problems, and he was eager to stop the damage before it got any more costly. A Woods Basement Systems team, after ripping out the drywall and carpet, installed WaterGuard drains underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch leaks and prevent them from making it onto the floor. This was an expensive process, and a perfect example for why a basement should be waterproofed BEFORE it's finished.
