This Chesterfield, Missouri basement has leaks that leave the basement floor covered with water. In the before picture we see an entry point for water. WaterGuard was installed in this home which is a unique waterproofing system in that it sits on the footing of the home's foundation rather than in the mud which prevents the WaterGuard from clogging with mud. (please note that the concrete in the after picture had not had time to cure prior to the taking of the picture)
The room addition was losing HVAC air in the crawl space and the room above was cool in the winter and warmer in the summer causing uncomfortable rooms and high utility bills. The CleanSpace® encapsulation system in combination with the SmartDrain® was the perfect solution.
This Chesterfield, Missouri homeowner came across a leak in the basement along one side of a wall only during a heavy rainfall. We installed our WaterGuard® basement waterproofing system that neatly fits behind the finished drywall. The WaterGuard® drains all the collected water to our TriplSafe® sump pump system that includes a three pumps, including one that is a battery backup.

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.

Homeowners Jon and Aimee E. of Chesterfield, Missouri wanted a solution to their damp and smelly crawlspace. Like many other homeowners, they didn’t have much insulation in their crawlspace, causing damp and musty air in from the exposed earth to enter their crawlspace, and eventually their home. Unsure of what to do, they called Woods Basement Systems to find the perfect solution to their crawlspace problem.
Our foremen Justin Gunn and his team came out to the home to seal the crawlspace from the earth, using several of our products including UltraSump, CleanSpace, and Vent Covers. Once the crawlspace is completely sealed, these homeowners will have a dry, clean space to store items and not have to worry about their home smelling like their crawlspace.
This home in Chesterfield, MO. was experiencing bowing walls. The pressure from the soil outside pressing in was causing the foundation walls to bend inward slightly. Over time, this pressure and bending could cause severe damage ranging from cracks up to collapsed walls.
To fix this problem, foreman Todd G. of Woods Basement Systems installed GeoLock wall anchors. This system can not only stop walls from bowing, but can sometimes even reverse the process, straightening the walls back out to their original position.
The wall anchor system works by burying a plate outside in the compacted soil and running a steel rod through the loose soil and into the home, where it attaches to a second plate inside. The two plates are pulled together by the rod, pulling the foundation walls into a strong, supported position permanently.
With wall anchors in place in this home in Chesterfield, the homeowners won't have to worry about their foundation walls failing anymore.
Homeowner Laura C. of Chesterfield, MO. scheduled a maintenace inspection on her sump pump system with Woods Basement Systems. John L. went out to look at the system and make sure everything was working well.
While he was there, John noticed that, even though the sump pump system was eliminating water leaks, the air still seemed damp and uncomfortable. He recommended the Sedona air dehumidifier. With the ability to remove up to 100 pints of moisture from the air in a single day, the Sedona would make short work of the damp air in this basement. On top of removing the moisture from the air, the Sedona would also filter the air, removing tiny particles like mold spores or dust mite droppings. Now the air would feel dry and comfortable while also preventing the spread of mold and allergens.
Laura C. was able to upgrade her home with a Sedona dehumidifier during a maintenance inspection to keep her basement air as dry as her basement floors.
Chesterfield, Missouri homeowner Julie B. had only finished her basement in the last year when she began to have moisture issues in the space. She knew that the water was coming from behind the drywall, but she couldn't pinpoint exactly where it originated. The leaks had already ruined parts of the drywall and flooring, as well as several pieces of furniture, and Julie was ready to have the problem taken care of.
Before a Woods Basement Systems team could begin waterproofing, they had to cut away the bottom half of the drywall and rip up parts of the floor to gain access to the foundation. After this, they installed a WaterGuard drainage system underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls in order to catch any water. Finally, a TripleSafe sump system was put in place to remove all leaks from the home. Julie is thrilled with the results!

Needing the job done quickly and correctly, Gustavo and Kate called Woods Basement Systems.
Building code in many states, Missouri included, require that basement bedrooms have at least one window that is large enough to crawl out of in case of a fire or some other emergency, and this particular basement was only equipped with small, narrow windows that were certainly not up to these specifications. Because of this, foreman Miguel and his team installed an Egress window in the proposed guest bedroom. Egress windows are large, double-paned, sliding windows that allow more than enough room for a person to climb out and up the window well to safety. Gustavo and Kate now have peace of mind and can begin to finish their basement!

Dawn and David noticed that there was water in their crawl space, and there was mold. Their crawl space also infected their basement. The walls of the basement had big dried up water spots that weren’t very appealing. They didn’t report that there was any bad smells going on, and the mold had not affected them. Dawn and David use their basement for extra living space, so they knew the problem needed to be fixed right away.
Woods Basement Systems, Inc. sales rep Kevin went out to inspect the home, and he gave them the solution they needed: SmartPipe and CleanSpace. SmartPipe allowed water from the crawl space to drain out so their crawl space and basement would stay dry, and CleanSpace to prevent mold from growing and the musty smell that comes with it. Juan and his crew went out to the house and installed the products in an efficient amount of time.
Dawn and David were very satisfied with the work done by Juan and his crew, and now they can live comfortably.
This week Irene had her crawlspace flooded with water and needed it the water gone as soon as possible. She also wanted to stop the water flow at its source. The problem was that water was coming in from under the home and getting in through footers and flooding the entire basement. In turn, this water made it damp and humid, which is the perfect environment for mold to colonize. Woods Basement Systems came out to evaluate her concerns and see how they could correct the situation. Irene purchased the SmartPump System, the SmartPipe System, the SaniDry XP System as well as the CleanSpace wall coverings to insure that everything would be fixed the proper way once and for all. With all of these systems working together, there was no way water was going to be a concern for her anymore. The SumpPump would get the water out and the SmartPipe would catch any water coming through the dirt floor.
Now production had to begin, first a hole was dug out and the SmartPump System was placed inside and turned up so that all the water in the basement was pumped out. Originally the water collected all around the basement, not a trench was dug where the SmartPipe would lie in order to catch any water coming through the dirt floor. All exteriors lines for the SmartPump were then connected and lead outside of the home. Now that the two main systems where placed and ready to go, the CleanSpace wall covering was placed over the top floor which made it brighter and waterproof. With the CleanSpace done, the last thing to do was to suck out the humid air with the SaniDry System and prevent mold growth. Irene was very pleased on how her crawlspace turned out and how dry is has become from the original point. If you or someone you know is looking to have their crawlspace inspected give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.

David plans on living in his house for the rest of his life. When rain ruined his carpet, David sought aid for his leaking basement. Woods Basement Systems performed a free home inspection and advised David to purchase a TripleSafe sump pump as well as WaterGuard, two IceGuards, and our incredible ThermalDry floor tiling.
What makes this a great waterproofing system? The WaterGuard collects water from all directions thanks to its patented wall flanges. The TripleSafe receives water from WaterGuard and pumps it out of the house. To address the possibility of freezing of discharge lines, IceGuard is designed to dispel the backing-up water before it floods the pump. Each product plays an instrumental role in keeping water out of David's basement.
Our exemplary ThermalDry floor tiles nearly sold themselves with their beauty and practicality. These simple snap-on tiles are durable, spill-resistant, and they dehumidify air from the ground using circulation pockets.
David can now happily spend his days of retirement in a dry, happy, healthy home; you can too!

Breck and his wife have lived in their house 15 years and plan to live there a while longer. Every year they noticed a difference in temperature throughout their house. A temperature that they didn't have control over. They used a humidifier in the winter and a dehumidifier in the winter. The couple spent most of their time on the main floor of their house which was the area with the most problems. They needed this problem fixed so they could live more comfortably. Dr. Energy Saver came and inspected the home and then diagnosed the problem as an air loss issue. Air Sealing and increased insulation was the best way to take care of this job.
Jeff noticed that his walls were starting to crack and bow inward. He called Woods Basement Systems to get a free estimate. Our System Design Specialist came and said that Jeff's best option for repair would be the Wall Anchor System. This would pull his wall back into place and would stop future cracks and bowing from occurring.
When Jeff agreed with our proposal, Woods came fixed the cracked walls and installed six Geo-lock Wall Anchors with concrete for extra strength. After his walls were straightened out, Jeff decided to complete his basement with EverLast Perimeter Wall with white trim, six panel unfinished primed door with knobs, and wall anchor covers. With these in place, Jeff's basement is more comfortable and looks brand new.
