Effective Concrete Leveling & Concrete Sealing

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

Frozen Sump Pump Discharge Lines in Grover, MO

When Grover, MO resident, Jeff D. realized his sump pump was not working correctly, he did not hesitate to call in professionals.  After coming across Woods Basement Systems in his research, he scheduled an appointment for a free estimate.  Brian Cox arrived at Brian’s home on February 7, 2013.

After Brian’s systematic diagnoses, he told Jeff that his sump pump could not keep up with the freezing temperatures due to the discharge line freezing.  In one of the coldest months of the year, Jeff was not sure that there was a way to prevent this problem.  Then, Brian informed the homeowner on the innovative IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge Line System.  This system includes a certified sump pump by the nationwide Basement Systems Network as well as the Basement Systems IceGuard anti-freeze device.  Jeff was enthused that Woods Basement Systems had access to these advanced products & information.  He scheduled the installation for the following week.
