New Sump Pump with Battery Backup in Carlyle, IL New Sump Pump with Battery Backup in Carlyle, IL

The previous sump pump installed in this Carlyle, Illinois basement did not have a battery backup or sealed lid to keep water vapor from escaping and causing higher humidity in the basement.  Our TripleSafe® sump pump system helps control basement humidity with its sealed lid and has a battery backup sump pump in case of a power outage.

This homeowner was referred by his sister and was trying to stop the leaking basement for years but finally called us.  He was handy so he cut out his own drywall prior to us installing our WaterGuard and would be responsible for putting it back up. Once the WaterGuard was installed and a fresh new layer of cement was laid down, he was glad not worry about replacing the drywall ever again when it got wet.

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

Huey Rd in Carlyle
My wife and I purchased an older home(built in 1961) this past April and we have been completely rehabbing it before we move in and with the heavy rains that we have had this year there has been water seeping in through hairline cracks and I also believe it is weeping up through the cracks along where the wall and floor meet. I would like to finish this basement and how its not a whole lot of water I still do not like the sight of it. I currently have a sump pit with a pump that runs during these rains but I believe that the drainage tile around the foundation may be clogged as I still see this water come through the cracks in areas. I would like to get this taken care before I start finishing my basement off. Thanks, Brad Clark
