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

Job Stories From Centralia, IL
Transforming Crawl Space into a Usable Storage Space Below the Home

In Centralia, Illinois homeowner Jerry S. was having issues with a wet crawl space. His crawl space looked like many other homeowners, with a dirt floor letting moisture into his home. Once he noticed a smell coming into his home above, he made a call to Woods Basement Systems. He was referred to Woods by a friend that had recently had their crawl space sealed and insulated. He wanted a space that was useable for storage without worrying that his items would get wet or damaged. After a free estimate from one of our system design specialists, he was greeted by our foreman Michael R. who sealed and insulated the space in just one day. The Woods Basement Systems team installed a vapor barrier liner on the floors and walls of the space called Clean Space. If any water were to get into the space it would be pumped out by our SmartSump system. Homeowner Jerry was happy with the work done in the space and was ready to use the new storage area in his home.

Badly Cracked And Sunken Patio Repaired With PolyLevel In Centralia, IL

Centralia, Illinois homeowners Tammy and Roy called Woods Basement Systems for help with their back patio. Over the years, much of the supporting soil had been washed away by rainwater, causing many of the concrete slabs to crack and sink under their own weight. The patio was an unsafe eyesore, and the couple was eager to have it taken care of. 

In order to repair the damaged concrete, foreman Kevin and his team used PolyLevel. This expanding composite foam was injected underneath the sunken slabs through tiny holes in the surface. The foam quickly lifted the slabs and filled in the cracks, and the patio was ready to be used in just 30 minutes! 

Leaking Centralia, IL Basement Kept Dry With WaterGuard And TripleSafe

Dennis M. of Centralia, Illinois noticed that water would stream down his basement walls during extended periods of rainfall. The regular leaks made it difficult for him to make effective use of the space, and he was eager to fix the problem. 

In order to waterproof the space, a Woods Basement Systems team began by installing under-floor WaterGuard drains at the base of the leaking walls to catch any leaks and prevent them from making it into the space itself. After this, a TripleSafe sump pump, equipped with three independently operating pumps and capable of pumping well over 10,000 gallons of water per hour, was put in place to remove all of the water caught by the WaterGuard drains from the home. Dennis's basement is now totally dry!

Prevention Before Basement Finishing in Centralia, IL with WaterGuard & TripleSafe

Judy of Centralia, Illinois needed a waterproofing system to protect her basement since she had decided to finish her basement. Judy worked alongside system design specialist, Luke K., who constructed the new, customized plan. Luke recommended installing a drainage system, WaterGuard, with a sump pump, TripleSafe, to pump water back outside.

Head foreman, Melvin F., installed the new waterproofing systems with the help of his team. WaterGuard drains were installed in the footing of the basement floors to collect the water leaks and direct them towards the new TripleSafe sump pump. With the help of these new waterproofing systems, Judy can now move forward in her basement finishing project. 

Leaking Centralia, IL Basement Walls Waterproofed With TwinPack and WaterGuard

Janet of Centralia, Illinois was tired of water coming down her walls and into her basement during periods of heavy rain. She suspected that it was originated from a crack in one of the walls, but just to be sure she called Woods Basement Systems.

After a system design specialist determined that the water was, in fact, coming from a crack in the wall, a Woods team got to work waterproofing the space. Foreman Miguel and his crew started by installing WaterGuard, a gutter-like drainage system, underneath the floor at the base of the walls to catch any and all leaks before they manage to make it into the space itself. To finish the job, they also installed a TwinPack sump pump to remove all of the water caught by the drains from the home!

Badly Leaking Centralia, IL Waterproofed With WaterGuard, CleanSpace, and Sanidry

Valerie S. of Centralia, Il had a huge problem with water in her basement storage room. During heavy rains, water would pour out of cracks in the walls and where the wall meets the floor. It was not uncommon for several inches to find their way in, leaving standing puddles behind. Valerie contacted Woods Basement Systems to resolve the issue and make her storage room fully usable again. 

Foreman Greg H. and his team got to work totally waterproofing the space. The first step was to encapsulate the storage room walls with a CleanSpace system. This inorganic liner attaches to the surface of the walls and prevents any moisture from getting into the area itself. After this, the WaterGuard system was installed under the floors at the base of the walls. This system collects any water coming from the walls and floors and pipes it away, keeping the floors dry. Next, a TripleSafe sump pump was put in place to take all of the water collected by the WaterGuard system and pump it out of the house. Finally, a Sanidry dehumidifier was installed to keep the air dry and prevent any kind of mold growth. 

Thanks to the work of Woods Basement Systems, Valerie's storage room went from a dank, wet eyesore to a bone-dry, clean, and functional space!

Now Roy and Tammy can rest easy knowing Geo-Lock works to keep their home safe and their lives on track!

Roger of Centralia, Illinois needed his crawl space to be repaired along with a new sump pump, so he called Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Austin G. recommended installing a SmartSump pump, CleanSpace, and WaterGuard. 

Foreman, Juan H. installed the products. The SmartSump sump pump is specifically designed for crawl spaces and can protect against flooding and leaks. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier used to fully seal off a crawl spaces from dirt, critters, and moisture. It is made of inorganic materials, so it does not support mold growth. WaterGuard is installed in the perimeter of the floor and it guides water that is collected through the walls to the sump pump to be removed from the home.

Basement Waterproofing in Centralia, IL

Michael W. of Centralia, Illinois noticed that his home's basement was flooding after heavy rain storms. He did not want to have to clean up a mess every time it stormed, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Adam R. assessed the situation and decided that the best option was to install a TripleSafe sump pump, a Twin Pack sump pump, a Waterguard drainage system, a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier, and a CleanSpace wall system. Foreman William H. then traveled to the home to get the job started.

The TripleSafe is a sump pump equipped with a primary, secondary, and battery powered pump. If the power goes out, the sump pump will still remove water from the home. The Twin Pack sump pump has both a primary and secondary pump. The sump pump removes water from the basement through a discharge line. The Waterguard drainage system was placed above the footing of the basement. It collects and drains water rising from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. The CleanSpace wall system is a plastic liner that is attached to the wall. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks that may occur behind it. Finally, the Sanidry Sedona is a lightweight dehumidifier that not only removes water vapor, but also filters the air for dust, pollen, and other allergens.

Michael W. no longer has to worry about his home's basement flooding. He now has a dry and waterproof home.

The Waterguard drainage system was placed above the footing of the basement and was then covered with concrete. It accepts and drains any water rising from the soil before it reaches the basement surface. The TripleSafe sump pump is equipped with a primary, a secondary, and a battery powered pump. The sump pump collects and removes water from the home through an exterior discharge line.

Ray H. is happy that he no longer has to worry about coming home to a flooded basement. He now has a dry and waterproof home.

Waterproofing in Centralia, IL Basement

John B. of Centralia, Illinois discovered that his basement was collecting water even though he already had a working sump pump. He did not want to ignore the problem, so he called Woods Basement Systems for a solution.

Design specialist Jacob K. assessed the situation and decided the best solution was to install a WaterGuard drainage system and a BrightWall paneling system. The Zoeller 1/2 hp pump was also to be replaced. Foreman Mason S. traveled to the home to get the waterproofing products installed.

The WaterGuard drainage system was installed above the footing of the basement. It collects and drains water that is coming up from the ground before it reaches the surface. The BrightWall paneling system was fastened to the walls of the basement. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks behind it, all while making the basement look cleaner and brighter. Finally, the Zoeller 1/2 hp pump was replaced in the sump pump. It is the primary pump that is used most often.

John B. no longer has to worry about his basement flooding after a heavy rain. He now has a dry and waterproof home.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Centralia, IL

Jeff A. of Centralia, IL was worried when he discovered that his crawl space was holding water. Because air rises, having a wet crawl space can cause all kinds of problems. Any mold spores and allergens in the crawl space can end up coming through a home's vents, which means that the homeowner is breathing in these allergens constantly. Fortunately, Jeff decided to call Woods Basement Systems, and we were happy to help!

After design specialist Brandon B. assessed the home and determined the best solution, foreman Joshua B. traveled to the home. He started off by installing a SmartPipe system with an exterior discharge line and IceGuard, a SmartSump, and a SaniDry CX. The SmartPipe drainage system has holes on the top and front which helps collect water from the ground and the surface of the crawl space, leaving a drier area. The SmartSump is a sump pump made specifically for crawl spaces. With the help of the exterior discharge line, it moves water out and away from the crawl space. In case of a cold winter, the IceGuard provides a different path for water if the discharge line freezes. The SaniDry CX is a special dehumidifier made for crawl spaces. It collects any water vapor present and drains into the sump pump. Finally foreman Joshua B. installed an EverLast Door. This door is made out of inorganic material that seals the crawl space and keeps out water and any air leakage.

After the installment of all these waterproofing products, Jeff A. no longer has to worry about any water collecting in his home's crawl space. 

Centralia,Illinois Foundation Supported with Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

Tom P., Centralia, Illinois homeowner, was distraught by his bowing foundation walls. As the walls bowed under pressure, they cracked and allowed water to leak into the baement. The water caused mold to grow. System design specialist David F. designed a solution.

PolyLEVEL Restores Centralia, Illinois Patio

Ron H. of Centralia, Illinois was concerned about his uneven patio. As the soil around the home settled, the concrete settled.

Crawlspace Redone in Centralia, IL

Gary and Jan C. of Centralia, IL were having moisture control issues in their crawlspace. Gary and Jan were concerned about the threats of mold and rotting wood this moisture was causing. Woods Basement Systems was able to provide a solution to ease their minds.

Woods installed CleanSpace to seal off the crawlspace from outside moisture. This would reduce the risk of mold and rotting wood by eliminating the amount of moisture in the crawlspace. A drainage mat was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. Vent covers are fit to the vents of the home to create an air tight seal that prevents moisture from seep through.

Woods also installed a SaniDry. The SaniDry system filters moisture out of the air and makes the crawlspace less humid. Controlling the humidity in the crawlspace is important to preventing mold. The less moisture, the harder it is for the mold to grow.

A Twin Pack sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary. 

Centralia, Illinois Driveway Corrected with PolyLEVEL

Centralia, Illinois homeowner Mary B. was frustrated with the cracking concrete driveway to her home. The cracking and uneveness of the concrete created a safety concern.

Radon Mitigation System Installed in Centralia, Illinois Basement

Centralia, Illinois resident Lindsay A. was concerned about high levels of radon in her basement. Radon is a naturally gas found in the soil and is the second leading cause to lung cancer. In addition to her concerns about radon, her open sump pump was creating a musty smell in the basement.

Foreman Greg J. installed a dome cover over the sump pump to prevent water from escaping into the basement. More importantly, Greg installed a radon mitigation system to keep the levels of radon detected in the basement at a safe level. Now, Lindsay's basement is free of odor and safe from the carcinogen, radon.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors Keep House Standing in Salem, IL

Lisa and Billy dreamed of having a beautiful basement. Before Woods Basement System, the dream was just that--a dream. The basement walls were cracking and bowing, and despite homemade attempts to seal the windows water still continuously leaked in. The leaks stained the walls; paint would only cover the problem until the next rainfall. The bowing walls definitely concerned them; it was only going to get worse.

However, Woods told Lisa and Billy that their dream could become reality. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors installed by a Woods team held the bowing walls in place, and five SunHouse Window Wells increased brightness in the basement and stopped water from entering.

Woods also installed WaterGuard, two different waterproofing systems that seamlessly work together to keep any basement dry.

WaterGuard is a patented drainage system that runs along the perimeter of the basement above the footing; its unique design keeps debris from clogging the system. WaterGuard includes special above-ground flanges that create a tiny amount of space between the wall and the ground; water from the wall will go right into WaterGuard instead of your basement floor!

Lisa and Billy now have their dream basement thanks to Woods Basement Systems. The floor and walls are dry, the foundation is supported properly, and the windows stopped leaking!
