The brick steps of this Carterville, Illinois home rested on a concrete slab.  The slab had sunk on one side, raising the steps on one side and creating uneven steps.

Woods Basement Systems injected PolyLEVEL below the slab to fill the void and lift the concrete back to a desired level.  The process was clean with minimal disruption, and the quick cure time allowed these homeowners to use their front steps instantly.

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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

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

Dirty Carterville, IL Crawl Space Transforms with CleanSpace

Jon from Carterville, Illinois wanted to store his extra storage into the crawl space, but due to the water that would leak inside, he knew his items would be damaged. Team Woods looked at Jon's crawl space and noticed that his crawl space had no means of protection against water leaks. System design specialist, Mike A., suggested installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system to seal the crawl space from harm. 

The CleanSpace encapsulation system was installed by head foreman, Jesse C., and his crew. This CleanSpace vapor barrier will block outer elements from harming the crawl space and it will keep the crawl space fresh and clean. Now that the CleanSpace system has been installed, John can now use the extra space as storage like he wanted! 

Carterville, IL Basement Adds CleanSpace & WaterGuard

Maria and Tim of Carterville, Illinois had been experiencing a leaking, moldy basement, so they decided to call Woods Basement Systems for their perfect solution. Our systems design specialist, Todd, recommended installing a WaterGuard system along with our CleanSpace encapsulation system. 

Foreman, Juan H. and his crew installed the products. Our WaterGuard french draining system is design to collect all water that enters a home. These drains are installed around the perimeter of the basement and guide the water to the sump pump. 

CleanSpace is used to collect water that seeps through the basement walls. It is a vapor barrier made of inorganic materials, so it does not support mold growth.

Now Maria and Tim can use their dry, watertight basement for storage. 

Basement Waterproofing in Carterville, IL

Chris G. of Carterville, Illinois noticed that his home's basement was collecting water every time it stormed. He did not want to have to keep cleaning up a mess, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Brandon B. assessed the situation and formulated the perfect solution. Foreman Melvin F. then headed to the home to install a TripleSafe sump pump, a CleanSpace wall system, a Waterguard drainage system, and a SaniDry XP dehumidifier.

The Waterguard drainage system was placed above the footing of the basement. It drains any water rising from the ground before it reaches the basement surface. The CleanSpace wall system is a plastic liner that was attached to the walls of the basement. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks behind it. The SaniDry XP is a powerful dehumidifier that not only removes water vapor, but also filters the air for dust, mold spores, and other allergens. Finally, the TripleSafe sump pump removes water from the basement through a discharge line. It is equipped with a primary, secondary, and battery powered pump.

Chris G. no longer has to worry his home's basement flooding after big storms. He now has a waterproof and dry basement.
