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 De Soto, IL
Waterproofing a Crawlspace in De Soto, IL

A crawlspace in De Soto, IL was wet and humid and was exposed to humidity, which made it susceptible to mold and mildew. To solve this issue, the CleanSpace Encapsulation System was first installed. This will completely isolate the crawlspace from the earth, dramatically reducing the humidity level. This will also eliminate mold growth and make the whole house healthier. The white finished side will brighten the crawlspace and allow one to see inside easily. Additionally, the SmartSump System was installed. This system is designed just for crawlspaces and will pump out any water that enters it. Lastly, a SaniDry Sedona was installed. This high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system also includes an air filtration system, all in a single unit. This system wrings the air dry, and its powerful blower moves the dry air in and around the crawlspace. It also automatically drains the water it catches into the SmartSump, so there is no need to empty any bucket with this system. The homeowners were ecstatic with their sealed and dry crawlspace!

CleanSpace and SmartJacks in Crawlspace

In De Soto, Illinois homeowner Bobby D. had previously gotten his crawl space sealed by Woods Basement Systems. They installed CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System, Triple Safe Sump, and IceGuard. They also installed our SmartJacks, to better support the crawl space and the floor above. Years later, he decided to call them back out for an annual maintenance of his crawl space and smart jack system. Before, he was not ready to invest in our SaniDry Sedona, but this time he was. We installed that, as well as a TwinPack for the TripleSafe. We also checked for any wear and tear on any of the products we had previously installed.

De Soto, IL Smart Jack and Sanidry Sedona Installation in Crawl Space

Brett S. of De Soto, Illinois noticed that his floors were sagging. When he went to check the problem out in his crawl space, he discovered that water was getting in. He called Woods Basement Systems to take care of his problems.

Design specialist John S. assessed the situation and decided that the best choice would be to install some smart jacks, a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier, and SilverGlo Crawl Space Wall Insulation. Smart jacks are made of steel and are placed in the crawl space to stablilze and lift the floors above. The Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier filters the air of any water vapor, mold spores, dust, or allergens. Finally, the SilverGlo Crawl Space Wall Insulation is attached to the rim joists and reflects heat back into the crawl space to keep it insulated.

Brett S. no longer has to worry about crawl space problems. His floors are now level and stable, and his crawl space is dry and safe from rotting and mold growth.

De Soto Home Moist No More

     Joe is a homeowner in De Soto. In 2013, fed up with his wet basement, he made a life-changing (or at least home-changing) decision: he called Woods Basement Systems!

     Today, his basement looks and feels drier, cleaner, and healthier. Why? It's a three-part answer. Part one is the WaterGuard, a drainage system running the perimeter of the basement floor. WaterGuard rests atop the concrete footing rather than in mud; it will not ever clog!

     Part two is the TripleSafe, the surest choice among all sump pumps. This patented system collects water from the WaterGuard and pumps it out to a LawnScape Outlet, where the water is drained safely away from Joe's home. TripleSafe has a second pump to put the mind at ease and a back-up battery for when the power goes out.

     Last but not least, Joe purchased three beautiful SunHouse Window Wells. Not only do they brighten up his basement, but these waterproof wells protect your basement window from the elements, dirt, and debris. 

      Joe took advantage of Woods' free home inspection, and so can you. Our certified specialists will be able to describe your exact basement issue and recommend a plan for repair. Keep your basement dry the Woods way!
