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

Waterproofing a Creal Springs Basement with WaterGuard

In Creal Springs, Illinois homeowner Beth M. was having issues with rainwater getting into her basement. After living in the home for over ten years, she had never had this issue before. She began noticing that the rainwater was coming in where the basement floor met the walls, spreading and pooling up on the floor. This was a major issue for Beth because she stored a lot of important items in her basement and needed the space to stay dry. Wanting to fix the issue as soon as possible, Beth called Woods Basement Systems.

The Drainage System that Works

Many homeowners struggle with leaking, wet, and damp basements. However, Bruce of Creal Springs, Illinois was having a similar problem, but in his basement. His problem was in the garage of his home. Unfortunately, this is another place similar to a basement where homeowners store items and expect them to stay dry. Because unfinished basements and garages are similar in many ways, they can have the same problems when it comes to rainwater and leaking. Unable to store anything in his garage without the fear of it getting wet and damaged, Bruce decided it was finally time to give Woods Basement Systems a call.

We sent our foreman Juan Hernandez and his team out to the home to install our patented waterproofing systems, such as WaterGuard and Ice Guard. WaterGuard is our premiere waterproofing drainage system that collects any water entering the garage and sends it out of the home. IceGuard ensures that the pipe draining the water out can still function correctly even if it has become frozen or clogged. Now, Bruce will never have to worry about water problems in his home ever again.

Replacement TripleSafe Sump Pump & New WaterGuard Drains in Creal Springs, IL

William, a homeowner from Creal Springs, Illinois, reached out to Woods Basement Systems to waterproof his basement. He currently only had an outdated sump pump to protect his home from water damage. Sam W., one of Woods top system design specialist, worked with William to find a solution that would protect his basement for years to come. 

Upon inspection, Jeremy recommended replacing his outdated sump pump with a new TripleSafe sump pump. This dependable pump will be able to handle double the amount of water the previous pump had. WaterGuard drains would also be utilized to collect and guide water leaks towards the new TripleSafe sump pump. Both of these products were installed by foreman Brett J. and his crew. Thanks to Woods' top waterproofing products, this home will remain dry during the spring season!

Partially Finished Basement Waterproofed in Creal Springs, IL

The partially finished basement in Brady C.’s Creal Springs, IL home leaked with each rain. The wood paneling on his walls was ruined and the small store-bought dehumidifier he had in his basement was ineffective at preventing musty smells. He also had leaky windows so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Jake S. assessed the basement and recommended a basement waterproofing system.

Woods replaced the leaky basement windows with EverLast windows. EverLast windows are made of double paned insulated glass in reinforced vinyl frames. The frames will never rust or rot. The windows are installed to prevent water or air from escaping from the gaps around the windows and because they are double paned, they prevent major heat loss through the windows.

Over the foundation walls, Woods installed CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a thick and durable plastic liner that prevents moisture from entering the basement through the basement walls, instead directing it down to the perimeter drainage system. It also gives the basement a much brighter and cleaner appearance.

The WaterGuard drainage system was installed under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is situated on top of the concrete footing to keep it mud-free as it collected water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe was installed to take the water collected by the WaterGuard and eject it safely out of the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains two powerful cast-iron pumps and a battery back up pump to protect the basement from severe weather and power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards feature slotted openings to prevent water from getting back into the basement if the lines become frozen. They give the water an alternative escape route into the yard.

Woods replaced the store-bought dehumidifier with the SaniDry. The SaniDry dehumidifier is as energy efficient as the smaller unit but it is much more powerful. It can remove up to 109 pints of water from the air per day which keeps relative humidity low. It prevents musty smells and conditions that allow mold to grow.

Brady C. is relieved that his basement is now dry and he no longer has to worry about water damage in the future.
