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.

One Webster Groves home has been through at least three different homeowners, but it was the latest homeowner who inherited and finally decided to resolve his wet basement problem.
When William D. purchased his home, the basement included two existing sump pump systems. Unfortunately, the two sump pumps were not enough to keep his basement dry. Hydrostatic pressure on the exterior caused the basement walls to crack and leak, groundwater would seep in between the walls and floor, and rainwater would run underneath the basement door and across the basement floor. Moisture penetrating the basement walls caused paint to crack and chip. Eventually, his existing sump pumps failed. Standing water jeopardized items stored in the basement and threatened to ruin William's valuables.
William's story changed the moment he called Woods Basement Systems. He met with System Design Specialist Rich Obermeier, who carefully inspected William's basement and thoroughly discussed William's goals. Foreman Michael Jones, Jr. completely removed the failed sump pumps and installed a brand-new TripleSafe sump pump system, including two primary pumps and a third battery backup sump pump to keep William's basement dry all the time. The crew also installed WaterGuard along the basement perimeter to drain groundwater seepage from the wall-floor joint directly to the sump pump.
William's project also included the IceGuard sump pump discharge line system to prevent his sump pump discharge pipes from freezing in the winter. William is very impressed with his system, the crew, and our company. Today, he's free to use his basement for storage and will never have to worry about groundwater leaks again!
Susan from Breese woke up one morning to a strange pungent smell in her house. She searched all over her house to try and find the source of the smell. Susan looked and looked every place she could think of. Susan finally looked at her crawlspace and she found the smell. It was mold growing on the wood of her crawlspace. Susan decided to call Woods Basement Systems.
Michael inspected the house and came up with a solution. The solution was to install a CleanSpace waterproofing seal in the crawlspace. This will seal the moisture that is coming in from the ground below. Michael also added in a drainage system to drain into a sump pump. This is to help get any water out of the crawlspace that my either come in during the summer or water that will rise from the dirt floor.
A Woods Basement Systems Production team came out and installed the new CleanSpace and a sump pump. With this system in place Susan has not worried or smelled mold inside of her house.
Jim was looking to get a radon gas test kit for his home in Glen Carbon, IL. When referred by a friend, he went to Woods Basement Systems to pick up a few test kits. When he got the results back, he saw that the radon levels were alarmingly high. He went back to Wood’s to set up an installation of a radon mitigation system.
A few days later, on May 26th 2015, foreman Michael Jones and crew took one day to install the system. The system quickly dropped his radon levels substantially & his home is no longer a danger to him & his family.

With the Geo-Lock Anchors in place Michael no longer has to worry about his wall failing his house.
With high levels of radon, Michael T. determined along with Woods Basement Systems that a Radon Mitigation System was to be installed.

Michael and Renee M. in Kirkwood, MO had humidity control issues in their crawlspace. They wanted to lower their energy bills, so they called Woods Basement Systems to find a solution.

A SaniDry was installed to filter moisture out of the air in the crawlspace. A SaniDry is a dehumidifier for the space and will help control the humidity.

Michael and Mary S. of Ellisville, MO had climate control issues in his crawlspace. The climate is keeping the space damp and threatening the home with mold and rotting wood. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to help Michael and Mary with their problem.
CleanSpace was installed to help seal off the crawlspace. This seal will prevent outside water from seeping into the space and making it damp. If your crawlspace stays dry, there will be a reduced chance of mold and rotting wood.
A drainage mat was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. These covers create an air tight seal and do not allow water or moisture into the crawlspace.
Woods also installed a SaniDry. The SaniDry system filters moisture out of the air and makes the crawlspace less humid. Controlling the humidity in the crawlspace is important to preventing mold. The less moisture, the harder it is for the mold to grow.
A sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that collects water seeping in through foundation walls and wall joints and drains it away to the sump pump.

The Twin Pack contains two powerful, cast-iron pumps to keep the basement dry even in heavy downpours. On the exterior of the homes, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. IceGuards prevent water from backing up into the basement if the lines become frozen by allowing it to escape through its slotted openings into the yard.
Corey K. has peace of mind that even when the forecast called for severe weather, his basement will remain dry.
Sappington, Missouri residents Michael and Sean G. were troubled by water leaking into their basement. Water leaked in where the floor meets the wall, but it also leaked into the basement through cracks in the foundation wall. The water seepage created a musty environment and risked damaging their valuables. System design specialist Nolan M. discovered that the cracks in the walls were a result of a bowing foundation. He designed a solution to restore the basement.
Todd W. and his crew installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to restore the bowing foundation wall to its original position. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors provide permanent support for the foundation. To waterproof the basement, Todd and his team installed WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system. WaterGuard collects and guides water to the TwinPack sump pump system. BrightWall was also installed.

With drainage matting, the vapor collected will be directed to the SmartPump sump pump, instead of pooling under the barrier.
The SmartPump will be sure that any water that gets into the crawl space is redirected a safe distance away from the home to cause no more problems.

Allen and Jen K. of Granite City, Illinois were interested in repairing their concrete driveway. Over the years, much of the underlying soil had washed away in the the rain, causing several of the slabs to sink and crack. This damage was both ugly and unsafe, and the couple called Woods Basement Systems for help.
In order to repair the damaged concrete, foreman Malik and his team used PolyLevel, an expanding composite foam.

These work by connecting heavy anchors buried deep in the firm soil far from the home to steel plates affixed to the interior surface of the damaged walls, effectively pulling them outward and straightening them over time.

That's why homeowner Dan B. from Wentzville, MO. hired Woods Basement Systems to inspect the sump pump system in his home.
