Jessica F. of Brighton, Illinois noticed that her basement was collecting water and some of the walls were cracking and bowing. She did not want to ignore the problems and allow them to get worse, so she called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.

Design specialist Cody M. assessed the situation and decided that installing wall anchors would fix the bowing walls, and a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system would keep the basement dry. Because foreman and their crews are specially trained, foreman Miguel O. came to the home to install the waterproofing products, and foreman Jeremy R. traveled to the home to install the wall anchors.

Wall anchors, pictured above, extend from the inside walls of the basement to the hard packed soil outside. The wall anchors stabilize and prevent any further movement of the walls.

Jessica F. no longer has to worry about the walls in her home cracking or her basement flooding. She now has stable walls and a dry basement.

Kimball C. of Brighton, Illinois discovered that his home's crawl space was collecting water after big storms. He knew that standing water could cause rotting and mold growth. He called Woods Basement Systems in order to avoid those problems.

The CleanSpace encapsulation system, pictured above, was placed on the floors and up the walls of the crawl space. It is a durable and heavy duty liner that acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks that might occur behind it.

Heather of Brighton, Illinois needed a new sump pump for her basement. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Nolan M. developed a plan for her. 

Foreman Greg H. and his crew installed the TripleSafe sump pump for her. The TripleSafe is our surest way to a dry basement becuase of the three pumps it has. The primary pump is on when needed, the secondary pump kicks on when the primary pump is overwhelmed or goes out. This could be the case in a plumbing break or circut break. The third pump is a battery operated pump that kicks on when the first two are overwhelmed or the power goes out. 

Heather now has a dry basement she can trust.

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. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab, then the PolyLevel polymer is poured into the holes. 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 procedure PolyLevel replaces. To removed tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Concrete Repair in Brighton, IL

Doug B. of Brighton, IL made a call to Woods Basement Systems about fixing the unevenly settled concrete slabs outside of his home.

Trent W., a Systems Design Specialist, was sent by Woods Basement to visit the home. He determined that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Andrew T. to install PolyLevel, a foam that is installed into the concrete and works to lift and fill in cracks.

CleanSpace Installation in Brighton, IL

When homeowner Kimball C. of Brighton, IL discovered the issues that comes along with a dirt crawlspace, he gave Woods Basement System a call. System design specialist Jacob K. headed to Brighton, IL to further discuss with the homeowner the design has created that would fix the problems in the crawlspace.

Foreman, James L. did a CleanSpace Encapsulation System installation. The dirt in a crawlspace has a very high humidity level which causes water vapor to move upward into the home. The dampness in the crawlspace also allows mold to reproduce, sending toxic mold spores into upper level of the home. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System consists of a heavy duty 7-layer liner material that is installaed across the floor and up the walls of the crawlspace. This system stops water vapor from coming in and removes the damp odor. 

Because of the CleanSpace Encapsulation System, Kimball C. has a clean and bright crawlspace.

 

Wet Basement Waterproofed In Brighton, IL

Brandon F. from Brighton, IL was having problems with water coming into his basement after heavy rainfalls. Upon realizing the frustration and issues that a wet basement was causing, he decided to contact Woods Basement Systems for a free quote about fixing the issue.

Systems Design Specialist Michael T. evaluated the situation and determined that the appropriate solution would be to have foreman Mason S. waterproof the basement. In order to successfully do so, he installed WaterGuard, IceGuard and Triple Safe sump pump. All of these products work together in order to keep the basement dry. WaterGuard pushes water towards the top of the surface to keep it from reaching the ground and through Triple Safe sump pump, while IceGuard works to keep water flowing during winter months when freezing is a concern.

Since the waterproofing of his basement, Brandon is no longer concerned when he sees rain in the forecast.

Waterproofing and Wall Anchor Installation in Brighton, IL

Jessica F. of Brighton, Illinois noticed that her basement was collecting water and some of the walls were cracking and bowing. She did not want to ignore the problems and allow them to get worse, so she called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.

Design specialist Cody M. assessed the situation and decided that installing wall anchors would fix the bowing walls, and a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system would keep the basement dry. Because foreman and their crews are specially trained, foreman Miguel O. came to the home to install the waterproofing products, and foreman Jeremy R. traveled to the home to install the wall anchors.

Wall anchors extend from the inside walls of the basement to the hard packed soil outside. The wall anchors stabilize and prevent any further movement of the walls. The Waterguard drainage system was placed just above the footing of the basement. It collects and drains any water rising from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. Finally, the TripleSafe sump pump is equipped with a primary, secondary, and battery powered pump that removes water from the home no matter what may happen.

Jessica F. no longer has to worry about the walls in her home cracking or her basement flooding. She now has stable walls and a dry basement.

Patio lifted by Helical Piers in Brighton, IL.

Paula P. of Bright, IL had a beautiful concrete and brick patio that was sinking. Cracks had formed in the brick walls on the edge of the patio and it was visibly slanting to one side. She didn’t want to have to replace her patio so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Brenton K. inspected her patio and found the perfect solution to save it.

Woods Basement Systems installed two Helical Piers on the side of the patio that was sinking. Helical Piers are designed to support heavy and lightweight structures, like patios, and prevent them from sinking any further. The corrosion-proof Helical Piers are driven into more stable soil under the structure and then attached to the concrete footing. Helical Piers will prevent any future settlement of the structure and can even lift the structure back to its original position.

Paula P. is thrilled her patio is back to its level position and she no longer has to worry about it sinking.

We got water in our basement from all the rain which caused us to lose all our carpeting and padding in our finished basement. We would like to see what we can do to prevent this from ever happening again.
Vicinity of Crestwood in Brighton
I have a split level home with a mostly finished lower level. I have one location that seems to be leaking pretty regular when moderate to hard rain events occur. We recently discovered a new location with the heavy rains the past few days. Both locations are in the finished area. I have a gutter replacement scheduled but I am not sure that will eliminate the problem. We had a leak a few years ago and it was where the lower level concrete wall meets the floor. This was dug up and repaired with tar. I need an evaluation on what our options are.
