Jacob joined Team Woods as an installer in January 2018. Prior to joining the team, Jacob gained experience from a variety of jobs learning what he likes to do most. Part of this experience includes rehabing houses. Jacob also has his forklift liscense from Amazon. Throughout his experience, he didn't find anything he loved more than working with Team Woods. What he enjoys most about his job is the positive energy; everybody has a good attitude. 

Jacob spends most of his free time with his son. He also likes playing video games and playing basketball at the park. One thing you may be surprised to learn about Jacob is that he grew up in foster care in Vandalia, Illinois.

  • The Difference of WaterGuard
    The Difference of WaterGuard

    The Difference of WaterGuard

    In Venice, Illinois homeowner Michael S. was dealing with a wet basement. He noticed the rainwater was leaking in where the floor meets the wall, leaving pools of water on the basement floor. Once the items he had stored in the space were becoming damaged and wet, he decided to make a call to Woods Basement Systems.

    Our foreman Jacob Chamness and his team installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard is an innovative interior basement drainage system designed to effectively solve your basement water problems. When combined with our sump pumps and other waterproofing products, WaterGuard will keep your basement clean and dry year-round. Unlike conventional French drains that are installed outside the foundation or alongside the footing, WaterGuard drainage piping is installed inside the basement and won't clog with silt or plant roots.
