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

Crawl Space Cleaning in Centralia, Illinois

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. 

Now, Roger S. has a clean crawl space. 

Push Piers Raise Porch in Centralia, IL

Centralia, Illinois homeowner Craig had a porch that was settling and pulling away from his home. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and Team Woods developed a plan. 

Foreman Miguel and his crew installed two Push Piers to give the concrete the support it needed. The steel rods lift the concrete by transferring its weight from the moving soil to the solid bedrock. 

Craig now has a porch he can enjoy without worry. 

PolyLevel Increase Safety at Centralia, IL Home

Leo, a Centralia, Illinois homeowner, had an uneven driveway he was worried about. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and Team Woods developed a plan for him. 

Team Woods injected PolyLevel below the sinking slab to raise it back up. The PolyLevel is eco-friendly and will not wash away over time. It is lightweight so it will not contribute to further sinking and it sets in a couple of hours.

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.

Centralia, IL Basement Waterproofing

Ray H. of Centralia, IL noticed that his home's basement was flooding after heavy rain showers. He did not want to have to clean up a mess continuously, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

Design specialist Chris T. assessed the situation and formulated the perfect solution. Foreman Matthew V. then traveled to the home to install a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system.

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.

PolyLEVEL was installed by foreman Andrew T. and his team. PolyLEVEL is a long lasting solution. It does not settle or interact with the soil, so it is safe. Ron is pleased to know his patio is restored and safe.

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.

System design specialist Jacob K. designed an efficient solution. PolyLEVEL is a quick, noninvasive solution to sinking concrete. Foreman Andrew T. installed the PolyLEVEL to restore the concrete to its original position. Now, Mary's driveway is safe to use.

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!

Bernard Road in Centralia
I have ground water and surface water that enters my crawlspace under my double wide house. I have back filled around the house and taken all precautions around the exterior of the home in order to not let water get under the house. In the spring, it magically appears and after 3 to 4 inches of rain I will have 1-2 inches of water covering the majority of the crawlspace. My house is 28 feet wide x 76 feet long. 2128 sq ft. I am looking for a company to provide a mitigation system throughout my crawlspace to move the water to a sump pump or two. Also would like an encapsulation system after I know that the water problem has been resolved. Thank you. Ryan
