In Cape Girardeau, MO, Nick and Allison C. were worried about lung cancer. They contacted Woods Basement Systems for a radon test kit, which revealed they were being exposed to dangerous levels of this colorless, odorless gas. Nick and Allison then had Woods install a radon mitigation system. A new test kit was sent to the couple a month after the system was installed, only for it to be discovered that the levels in their southeast Missouri home were decreased, and so was their risk of lung cancer.

Helen W. of Springfield, IL experienced issues with sagging floors and humidity control in her crawlspace. The crawlspace was extremely humid. Woods Basement Systems fixed the sagging floors by installing SmartJacks. These lifted the floors and provided support.

In addition to the CleanSpace system, we also installed our SaniDry XP dehumidifier which keeps humidity low, making it so mold is unable to grow. Now Cathy has a clean, usable crawl space for years to come.

This driveway in Smithton, IL. was begining to show signs of uneven settling. The soil beneath the driveway was compressing due to weather and weight pressing it down. As the soil settled, the concrete would lose its support and begin to settle with it.
In addition to making the driveway become uneven, this can lead to cracking and damage as the concrete slabs bump into one another.
To fix this problem and level the driveway, Justin G. injected PolyLevel™ beneath the uneven sections to lift them into place. PolyLevel™ is a foam material that gets injected through small holes in the concrete. Once in place, the foam hardens into a super tough and very lightweight support that holds the concrete up without adding to the weight on the soil below.
PolyLevel™ is tough enough to be used beneath airport runways and is fast enough to be installed and solidified in just a few minutes.
With the driveway leveled, the cracks can be filled with NexusPro™ joint sealant. This sealant will flex with the concrete as it naturally shrinks and expands due to weather, but will prevent the slabs from rubbing into and damaging each other. It also keeps water from seeping through the gaps, where it could continue to erode the soil in places.
Now this Smithton driveway is leveled and protected from future settling.
In Cape Girardeau, Missouri homeowner Simone W. had a foundation problem. Many homeowners when they see signs of foundation settlement (cracks on the walls inside and outside of the home) they usually ignore the problem and don’t call to get it fixed. This is because fixing a homes foundation sounds complicated and expensive. No homeowner wants to spend a large amount of money and time into the foundation of their home. Little do they know, the problem can only get worse with time and it is better to get it fixed sooner than later. Simone called Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to her foundation problem.
We sent our foreman Jose Lorenzana out to her home to install the perfect solution to her problem, PushPiers. Our PushPiers utilize high-strength round steel tubes and a load transfer bracket to stabilize and/or lift sinking or settling foundations. This system is the best way to lift the home back to its original position, while doing the least amount of damage to the outside landscaping of your home. Now, Simone has peace of mind knowing her home is lifted and stable.

He made a call to Woods Basement Systems to see if they had a solution to his home.

This Millersville, Missouri crawl space was a nuisance to its owner. Heavy rain would flood the crawl space, and the musty smell saturated the main floor. The vented, dirt crawl space only compounded the problem of keeping the rooms above warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Rain or shine, she was always uncomfortable.
Woods Basement Systems installed a strong, durable vapor barrier to seal out moisture and a proper drainage system and powerful sump pump to evacuate groundwater away from the home. The crew covered all crawl space vents and sealed the rim joists with spray foam insulation to reduce moisture and eliminate drafts.
The Woods team transformed the home into a clean, dry, and comfortable place to live.
This home in Edwardsville, Illinois had developed cracks in the basement walls after years of hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is pressure placed on the walls when the soil outside the home is saturated with water. This is one explanation why during heavy rains water leaks are common. This home needed desperately needed waterproofing materials to protect itself from the rain. Team Woods investigated the space and decided that this space was lacking a draining system and a sump pump: WaterGuard and TripleSafe.
