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

Job Stories From Columbia, MO
Basement Waterproofing with WaterGuard and TripleSafe

A homeowner in Columbia, Illinois was alarmed to see water standing in his basement causing massive amounts of damage. From there he decided to call Woods Basement Systems for the best solution. This owner met Team Woods' system design specialist Ken I., who recommended the installation of a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard, and a LandScape outlet.

Team Woods installed a TripleSafe sump unit right away. The TripleSafe unit is composed of three separate pumps for triple protection and features a battery backup unit to power the sumps in any condition. WaterGuard works to collect water that seeps through basement walls. It guides that water to the sump pump so it can be pumped out of the home. It is installed in the perimeter of a basement floor. The LandScape outlet is then connected to the sump pump discharge line, which allows the water to leave the home and not reenter.

Now this homeowner can rest easy knowing his basement will stay clean and dry for years to come.

I have a split level home with a "half basement." The basement floor is cracking in the form of a large "X," roughly from corner to corner. I've been told that this is a floor heave. No visible cracking anywhere else.
