Pesky water leaks had taken over this beautiful Aviston, IL basement. Team Woods utilized WaterGuards into the flooring to collect the water and direct it towards the sump pump. With WaterGuards in place, the water leaks won't pool on the floor and create damage, instead, they will be moved towards the sump pump and will be pumped back outside.

Fast and Effective Concrete Lifting and Leveling

The major flaw of concrete is that the ground that it was poured on top of will inevitably shift and sink over time. In the states of Illinois and Missouri sinking concrete is all too common which is why our company has gone to great lengths to develop fast and effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions. PolyLevel is a revolutionary product that is minimally invasive and not only lifts and levels concrete but also stabilizes it.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. After only about 15 minutes the polymer is dry and the concrete is ready to be walked and even driven on.

This concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster, less disruptive, and arguably more effective than mud jacking, which is the standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Waterproofing a Basement in Aviston, IL

This homeowner's basement had suffered from water damage for years due to improper drainage. This led to damaged furniture in the basement as well as cracks in the foundation and concrete, which could pose further problems if not fixed soon. The TripleSafe was installed, which is a powerful sump pump that will quickly and efficiently pump the water up and out of the basement. This particular sump pump was also outfitted with an UltraSump battery backup, which will automatically kick on if it senses that the power's out. This ensures that even in the case of a power outage, the sump pump will continue to pump the water out of the house, keeping it dry even in a harsh storm.
