Clay has spent much of his career in the food service industry. He's been certified in food safety multiple times. While Clay has spent time working in nearly every area of a restaurant, his most enjoyable experience was his interactions with customers, ensuring they are satisfied. Clay is also well-acquainted with warehouse environments. He participated in a vocational training program where he learned how to safely use shop tools.
Clay joined Team Woods in April 2018, and what excites him most about his job is the opportunity to directly help people. He is a self-motivated, hands-on individual who loves to fix things. He has proven to be successful when he applies himself to projects.
In his free time, Clay enjoys working on cars. He's not only built a Chevy transmission, but he's built his own Chevy engine twice. Also, he's dedicated nearly two decades of his life playing guitar, learning music, and playing in bands. Though he enjoys his music and cars, his favorite way to spend time is with his children. He enjoys visiting new places, teaching them music, having them in the garage, and just enjoying each other's presence. One thing you may be surprised to learn about Clay is that back in the day, he had long hair that cascaded down his back.
Edmond K. of St. Louis, Missouri wanted a sump pump installed in the basement of his home, due to concern about water leakage. Before he called Woods Basement Systems, Edmond did not have any kind of waterproofing agents in his basement. Worried about the upcoming spring whether, he had our foremen Clay Laister and his team come out to help waterproof his basement.
Clay and his team installed a UltraSump sump pump system at the lowest point of the basement, therefore, when rain was to enter the basement it would head straight to the pump. Once the water is in the pump, it is sent up and out of the basement far away from the foundation walls. With the UltraSump, the pump will kick in when the power goes out. Now Edmond can have peace of mind during a storm or bad whether.
A TripleSafe sump pump will restore this leaky home by replacing the old, outdated sump pump. The previous pump could handle the amount of water in the basement, but now with the TripleSafe sump pump, this sump pump will discard of all water leaks that may seep in!
This homeowner wanted to waterproof her basement after her home's basement walls were secured with Geo-Locks which were installed by Team Woods. To protect the home from water damage, Team Woods' head foreman Juan H. led his team in installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system on the walls, a TwinPack sump pump in the corner, and WaterGuard drains in the footing.
Every year a routine maintenance inspection is performed on Woods Basement Systems' products. In this home in Ballwin, MO. a maintenance check was performed on a TripleSafe™ sump pump system.
The TripleSafe™ sump pump system features three seperate pumps that can work together to keep the basement dry even in the toughest conditions. The third pump in the TripleSafe™ system is battery powered, allowing it continue to pump water out of the basement when the power goes out. The TripleSafe™ also features two discharge lines, allowing it to pump out water far more quickly than systems that rely on one single discharge line.
Woods Basement Systems installer Clay L. was able to check all three pumps as well as the battery and the discharge lines to ensure that the system was in the best possible condition to protect the basement. While performing this inspection, Clay L. also took the opportunity to start a Radon test to test the home for potentially dangerous levels of Radon gas. The homeowners can relax knowing they're in good hands thanks to Clay L.'s efforts.
In Hillsboro, Missouri Michelle and Steve K. were looking to improve the look of their basement window. Before they called Woods Basement Systems, the window of their basement was uncovered, making the area outside the window covered in debris, rain, and gutter overflow water. Our foreman Brett Jones installed the SunHouse Window Enclosure to the window to solve their problem.
SunHouse Window Enclosures are a great way to dress up any window making it bright and clean. One of the best benefits of the SunHouse is the light-colored enclosure, allowing a lot more sunlight into your basement, brightening up any space dramatically. Michelle and Steve now have a brighter basement with a great view.
