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

Job Stories From Carlinville, IL
Crawl Space Repair in Carlinville, Illinois

Beverly of Carlinville, Illinois needed her crawl space to be repaired, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Nolan M. recommended installing a SmartSump pump, CleanSpace, and IceGuard. 

Foreman, James L. installed the products. The SmartSump sump pump is specifically designed fro crawl spaces and can help to protect against flooding and leaks. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier used to fully seal off a crawl space from dirt, critters, and moisture. It is made of inorganic materials, so it is not susceptible to mold growth. IceGuard is installed on the outside of the home and it allows for water to expel from the guards in case pipes free up or get clogged. 

Now Beverly N. has a sealed and healthy crawl space. 

Push Piers Installed in Carlinville, IL

Carllinville, Illinois homeowner Marlene was experiencing cracks in her basement walls. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Luke K. developed the perfect solution for her. 

Foreman Jose L. and his crew installed Push Pier Systems for her. Push Piers are a great solution for settling foundation. We take the pressure of the structure from the moving soil to the steel Push Piers. They transfer the weight to the solid bedrock beneath. It prevents further settling and in many cases can return the home to its original structure. 

Marlene now has a stable foundation for decades to come. 

Concrete Repair in Carlinville, IL

Michael C. of Carlinville, MO decided to make a call to Woods Basement Systems about fixing the unevenly settled concrete in the driveway of his home. 

Systems Design Specialist Kevin E. was sent by Woods Basement Systems to visit the home determined that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Andrew T. to install PolyLevel, a foam injection that goes into the concrete and both fills in cracks and lifts the surface.

Post install, Michael is no longer concerned about the safety of his home.

Homeowner Rich H. of Carlinville, IL discovered the walls of his basement were bowing inward so he gave Woods Basement System a call for a free estimate.

System design specialist, Benjamin S. did a home inspection and created a design that would fix the problem. Foreman, Bradley P. did a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor system installation. Wall failure in the basement is due to the intense pressure the soil causes around the home. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchor system prevents further damage from happening and completely stabilizes the home.

Basement walls leaking, standing water and alot of seeping.
Vicinity of North High ST. in Carlinville
We have an older home with some bowing walls, cracks, and general ugliness. The basement is bone dry but the brick walls look pretty bad. We are getting ready to do some remodeling and would like to address this issue first. Thanks
Vicinity of E Nicholas St. in Carlinville
We have an exterior crack on the east side of our foundation. The crack is about the same place the main support beam comes through the house in the basement. There is no sign of any cracking in the basement at this same point. The crack basically looks like the concrete is just ready to flake off.
Vicinity of Valley Lane in Carlinville
Mildewy odor in room in basement, mildew on baseboards and drywall, evidence of past water damage, water pooling on floor near cleanout after storm last night.
