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 Christopher, IL
TripleSafe Install in St. Louis, Missouri

Dan A. of St. Louis, Missouri had a leaky basement, so he decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a solution. Systems design specialist, David G. recommended installing a TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace, WaterGuard, and IceGuard. 

Foreman, Christopher B. installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump uses a primary pump, secondary pump, and a battery=powered backup pump to protect your home. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier made of inorganic materials and is used to collect water that seeps through basement walls. The WaterGuard is installed in the perimeter of the basement floor and it takes the collected water and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home. IceGuard is placed on the outside of the home and it allows for water to expel from the guards in the event that the pipes should clog or freeze. 

Now Dan A. has a watertight basement. 

PolyLevel Lifts Pool Deck in O'Fallon, Illinois

Terry of O'Fallon, Illinois had sinking concrete around his pool, so he called Woods Basement Systems fro help. Systems design specialist, Barry C. recommended installing PolyLevel for the job.

Foreman, Christopher B. installed the product.PolyLevel is used to permanently lift and stabilize sinking concrete slabs. It is made of a polyurethane formula, or foam that expands underground to fill space where soil has settled. How it works is first, small holes are drilled into the concrete. Then the polymer is injected into the void. Within 15 minutes of installation the concrete can be used again, so there is not long cure time. 

Now Terry C. can safely swim and walk around his pool.

PowerBrace Installation in Webster Groves, MO

Homeowner Christopher S. of Webster Groves, MO discovered his basement walls were bowing inward so he gave Woods Basement System a call. 

System design specialist, Chris S. did a home inspection and created a design that completely fix the problem. Foreman, Jeremy R. did a PowerBrace Wall Repair system installation. The cause of bowing walls is likely due to the pressure that the soil around the home is causing on the walls. The PowerBrace system uses steel I-beams to permanently stabilize the walls and potentially straighten the walls over time. 

Now Christopher S. no longer has to worry about his basement walls inward. 

PowerBrace Stabilizes Walls in Webster Groves, MO

WaterGuard Installed in Christopher, IL

Carol W. of Christopher, IL had water leaking into her basement, threatening the belongings she stored in the space and damaging her water heater. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to keep the water out of the basement.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

Woods installed a FloodRing around the hot water heater to contain the leaking water. This ring will prevent the water from spreading throughout the basement. The water will be drained through a line that can either lead to the WaterGuard installed or directly to a sump pump.

Woods installed a discharge line that was attached to a Twin Pack sump pump. This sump pump would pump the water in the basement through the discharge line. The discharge line leads the water into the yard where it is drained. The line can become frozen or clogged in some situations. In order to prevent the water from backing up into the basement, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard provides an escape route for the water so that it does not back up into the basement. 

CleanSpace and WaterGuard Installed in University City, Missouri

Jennifer and Christopher W. of University City, Missouri were troubled by their cracking basement walls. The cracking walls allowed water to leak into the basement and cause mold.

System design specialist Cory S. designed a solution to keep their basement dry and mold free. CleanSpace was installed by Michael P. and his crew. The CleanSpace wall system hides the cracks in the walls, making the basement beautiful again. It also guides water to the perimeter drainage system, WaterGuard. WaterGuard collects water and guides it away from the home.

Because CleanSpace is inorganic, it does not support mold growth. Jennifer and Christopher can live comfortably in their dry, mold-free basement.
