Before and After
Leaky Window in Charleston, IL
This old, leaky window was replaced with a new one in order to prevent water from entering through the cracks. The old window had begun to separate from the exterior, and cracks were extending out from the square. The cracks were sealed, and the new window fit perfectly in the square, keeping the rain out.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Installed in Urbana, IL
This Urbana, Illinois homeowner Tom had cracks in the walls of his basement and exterior of the home. He decided to give Woods Basement Systems a call to see what the best solution would be. From there, Team Woods' system design specialist, Greg B., developed the most ideal plan as a solution.
Foreman Kevin and his crew installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are steel rods that are drilled through the foundation wall and past the active soil line. They use the earth in order to provide the resistance the walls need to keep the dirt and water out.
Tom can now enjoy his basement and trust it is going to remain stable and dry.

Cracked and Leaking Basement Wall Repaired with GeoLock and CleanSpace in Mason, IL
A foundation in a Mason, IL basement was settling, causing cracks to appear. These cracks were also leaking water, causing mold to grow. To solve these issues, a CleanSpace Basement Wall System was first installed. This is an economical way to cover ugly walls, stop water vapor from permeating them, and drain wall leaks. The white color will also brighten the basement, reflecting the light. Next, the WaterGuard System was installed. These drainage pipes intercept water at the perimeter of the basement and drain it toward the sump system to be pumped out of the house. Lastly, GeoLock Wall Anchors were installed. These will permanently stabilize the foundation walls, straightening them to their original position and keeping them there. This basement will remain, dry, clean, and stable for years to come thanks to these systems!
PolyLevel System Levels a Sidewalk in Altamont, Illinois
Concrete is a heavy material and so are the vehicles, machinery, and structures that concrete slabs and footings are expected to support. Sometimes, the combined weight of concrete and what it supports causes concrete settlement to occur. The soil beneath the concrete compresses and can cause major problems.
This can cause problems at your home as well. Uneven sidewalks, walkways, and steps can cause tripping, and sunken driveway slabs can make parking your car in the garage quite a challenge. PolyLevel® is designed specifically to repair this type of problem in Decatur, Ballwin, Belleville, Champaign, St. Peters, Saint Louis and neighboring areas.
Signs Of A Basement Crack
- Vertical, horizontal, or stair-step wall cracks
- Cracked concrete slab/basement floor
- Musty smells
- Water leaks or seepage
- Efflorescence (white, chalky stains)
- High level of radon detected
Our basement crack repair services
Basement Floor Cracks
Water can also rise directly through the porous concrete of your floor slab, a problem that's exacerbated when there's a crack. When you have water coming through the floor, the first step is installing a perimeter drain system. We can also install a direct drainage channel, which will help direct any water that comes through the crack into the drain and your sump pump. Finally, we will backfill the crack with stone and cover it with fresh concrete to prevent future leaks.
Basement Wall Cracks
The soil around your foundation is filled with water, and even the smallest crack will allow this groundwater to seep into your basement. Much like with floor cracks, the first step to repairing a leaky wall crack is installing one of our drainage systems. We then use an innovative polyurethane sealant called FlexiSpan® to seal the crack. This flexible sealant will never dry or crack and can flex to the natural movement of your foundation wall, ensuring a completely waterproofed seal.
Basement Leaky Windows
A waterproof seal. Prevent future leaks with our basement window sealing system.
Window frames break down over time, creating separation and allowing water to seep past seals. Once again, the first step for repair window leaks is a drainage system that funnels the water to your sump pump. We will then create a small hole in the wall under the basement window with a plastic fitting that directs any water into the drainage system. This is then sealed with a polymer injection for a clean, waterproof finish.
Repair your leaking basement floor and wall cracks today!
Water can enter your home at any point where there is an opening in the foundation. This includes not only cracks in the basement walls and floors but around pipes as well. Our solutions provide lasting results that are compatible with your perimeter drainage system and will not crumble, flake off your walls, or fail due to the natural expansion and shrinking of the concrete.
