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!

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

Waterproofing System installed in Cape Girardeau, MO

Terry J. had an alarming amount of water get into the partially finished basement of his Cape Girardeau, MO home each time it rained. The finished walls were being ruined by water and he couldn’t store anything in his basement without fear that it would get damaged so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Ryan K. assessed the basement and recommended installing a waterproofing system.

WaterGuard was installed under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it away to the sump pump.

The Twin Pack was installed to remove the water collected by the WaterGuard through its discharge lines. The Twin Pack contains two high-powered, cast-iron pumps so the basement will remain dry, even in heavy downpours. On the discharge lines, IceGuards were installed. They are on the exterior of the home to prevent water from coming back into the basement in the event that the discharge lines become frozen or clogged.

Terry is glad that he can finally use his basement for storage and not worry about his belongings or walls being damaged by water.

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.
