When a basement is not properly waterproofed it can cause all kinds of problems for the rest of your house, including compromising the structural integrity of the foundations. Some of the major warning signs of a waterproofing problem are moisture or puddling, a musty smell, or condensation. These are most often the results of a sump pump failure, leaky pipes, or water flooding in when it rains. One of the first things that can be done is to install a sump pump to eliminate water and safely transport it out of the house.
Additionally, whether or not you are planning on refinishing your basement, waterproof walls and floors are a great option to keep moisture and bugs out without ugly paneling. Our EverLast wall panels are designed to be 197% stronger than regular drywall, be mold and mildew resistant, and do not require paint so they will look beautiful in your home. We also offer basement ceiling installations which are also mold resistant, allow access to ducts, electrical cords and cables, and have a 30-year limited "no-sag" warranty.
The most common symptoms of foundation disrepair, including bowing walls, cracked floors, sagging floors, and cracks in the walls, can seem more complicated than they actually are. These issues can be caused by a variety of things including poor, wet soil. By using products proven and tested to work like wall anchors, jack posts, and PolyLevel Concrete Leveling System, Woods Basement Systems, Inc. can tackle the problem and find a solution that will work for you.
If you have a patio or sidewalk that has become sunk in or uneven, then PolyLEVEL is the answer to your problem. The PolyLEVEL solution is injected underneath the concrete slab which raises it to the appropriate height. This minimally invasive way of correcting sinking concrete slabs is far preferable to removing the entire slab because it takes less time and is more cost-effective.

The TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed to take the water collected by the WaterGuard and pump it out of the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains three pumps: a primary pump, a more powerful secondary pump and a battery back up pump. If the primary pump fails or isn’t keeping up with the rising water, the secondary pump will kick in to ensure the basement remains dry. If there’s a power outage, the battery back up pump will keep pumping water pumping out of the basement.
IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards have slotted openings prevent water from coming back into the basement if the discharge lines become frozen during the winter months.
Kenneth and Paula M. are ecstatic that they can finally use their basement again without worries of water damage.
