Homeowners, June and Kert L. resolved to call Woods Basement Systems when they were in need of a new sump pump. The TripleSafe Sump Pump System uses three sumps. The second sump is used if pump one fails, or both can work together to eject more water. The third pump kicks on in times where power outages occur. June and Kert were pleased to know that in case of flooding TripleSafe will make sure their basement stays dry.
John W. has a finished basement at his home and wanted a new system to replace his old sump pump. We sent Jaylon out to his location to discuss an alternative. John and Jaylon agreed a TripleSafe Sump Pump System would be the best system for his home. The TripleSafe has two pumps, not one, where the second operates when the first fails or is overloaded, and has a battery back-up pump for power outages. It also has an air-tight floor drain to keep odors out.
Now, John has a more reliable sump pump system to keep his basement dry.
Along with a WaterGuard installation, a Twin Pack Sump Pump was installed in the home of Marsha F. The Twin Pack Sump Pump will use both pumps in times of heavy water. The second pump will also work if the first were to go out. With the water collected from WaterGuard, and it being directed to the sump pump, Marsha can have piece of mind knowing her basement is protected from water damage.
A home in Farmington, MO had cracks around a doorway and around the foundation, which resulted by the support beam in the crawlspace, causing the home to put more pressure on the foundation. We instead our SmartJack XT, in which we installed a metal support beam, held up by metal tubes placed in the ground, holding up the beam. To ensure this home would be safe from future damage, we installed tubes to hold up the existing beam. Now, this homeowner can be sure the support will not fail the home again.
Ralph S. of Weldon Spring, Missouri experienced water leaking into his basement where the floor meets the wall. The water seepage risked damage to his valuables and posed a concern for mold growth.
System design specialist Todd M. designed a solution to waterproof Ralph's basement. WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system, was installed by foreman Melvin F. WaterGuard guides water to the newly installed TripleSafe sump pump system. Triple safe is equipped with three pumps to ensure the basement stays dry.
Ralph now has no reason to be concerned with a wet, musty basement. He can enjoy his dry, odor-free living space.
Elizabeth K. of Weldon Spring, Missouri was experiencing trouble with water leaking into her basement at her discharge line. To keep the water out of the basement, system design specialist Walter C. designed a solution.
Foreman Bradly P. checked the discharge lines and installed a new one. To provide an exit for water in the event that the line would become frozen, IceGuard was installed. Elizabeth no longer has worries about water leaks in her basement.
Jack M. of Weldon Spring, MO had water seeping into his basement. This water was threatening the home with mold. Woods Basement Systems was able to install products that would drain the water away.
Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed against the wall in the concrete of the floor. The water will flow into the WaterGuard, allowing the piping to lead the water out of the basement.
A sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the basement, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary.
Milly M. of Weldon, IL had water leaking into her crawlspace. The water had no escape route and would stay in the space until it dried. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to seal the crawlspace.
Woods installed CleanSpace to seal off the space and prevent water and moisture from getting in. A drainage matt was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. These covers create an air tight seal and do not allow water or moisture into the crawlspace.
Woods installed a discharge line that was attached to a TripleSafe sump pump. This sump pump would pump the water in the crawlspace 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 crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard provides an escape route for the water so that it does not back up into the crawlspace.
Jim S., Farmer City, Illinois homeowner, was sick of his wet, musty crawl space. Water leaked into the crawl space and caused mold, a common allergen. Greg B., system design specialist, designed a solution to restore the crawl space.
Foreman Greg J. installed our CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier. Because it is inorganic, it does not support mold growth. CleanSpace encapsulates the crawl space to prevent water from getting in.
Jim's crawl space is now clean and dry. He is pleased to know it will stay mold-free.
Clinton, Illinois homeowners Randy and Ann A. were distraught by their musty crawl space. Water leaking into the crawl space caused mold and created a musty environment. Because up 50% of the air we breathe in our home comes from the crawl space, Randy and Ann were displeased knowing they were breathing mold. System design specialist Greg B. designed a solution to restore the crawl space.

Melba L. of Frohna, Missouri noticed that her home's concrete porch was starting to sink and separate from the outside wall of the house. She wanted her porch to be level, so she called Woods Basement Systems.
Design specialist Matthew S. spoke to the homeowner and decided that PolyLevel would be the best solution. Foreman Juan H. traveled to the home and inserted the PolyLevel foam under the porch. PolyLevel can be inserted through holes around the size of a penny. The foam expands and lifts the concrete back to its original position.
Thanks to PolyLevel, Melba L. now has a level porch. She no longer has to worry about her concrete porch sinking.
Carl W. of Weldon Spring, MO was facing issues with the concrete around his home. He contacted Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate about resolving the problem.
Systems Design Specialist Matthew S. evaluated the situation and determined that the concrete was sinking and settling, causing it to be uneven. This can happen over time, due to the weight of the concrete and what the concrete is holding up. It was decided that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Andrew T. to insert PolyLevel injection. PolyLevel is a foam injection that is simply installed in 4-steps and lifts the concrete, resulting in a safe and level surface.
Carl W. no longer has to be concerned of the safety and security of his home now that he has had PolyLevel installed.
Tamara K. of Farmer City, Illinois was shocked when she discovered that her home's basement was collecting water. She did not want to have to clean up a mess after every rain storm, so she called Woods Basement Systems for help.
Design specialist Marc C. assessed the situation and decided that the best option was to install a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system. Foreman Clifton C. headed to the home to install the waterproofing products.
The Waterguard drainage system was placed above the footing of the basement. It accepts and drains any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. The TripleSafe sump pump is equipped with a primary, secondary, and battery powered pump. These pumps make sure water is removed from the basement no matter what may happen.
Tamara K. no longer has to worry about coming home to a wet basement. She now has a waterproof and dry basement.
Homeowner Llewellyn S. of Clinton, IL realized that her basement walls were beginning to bow inward. She gave Woods Basement System a call with her concerns and we got on the job.
System design specialist, Gregory B. did a thorough home inspection and created a design that would resolve the issue. Foreman, Jeremy R. then traveled to Clinton, IL to do a PowerBrace Wall Repair system installation. This system completely creates stability for the basement walls and potentially straightens up the walls over a period of time. This is done by steel I-beams secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. The PowerBrace only requires interior work with minimal disruption to the basement.
Llewellyn S. is happy that the PowerBrace Wall Repair system has created safety, security, and stability for her home.
Clinton, Illinois homeowner Martin noticed stair step cracks that ran between the cinder blocks in his foundation. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and Team Woods Developed a plan for him.
Foreman Greg H. and his crew installed the PowerBrace system in the basement. The PowerBraces are like I-beams but are steel and anchored to the rim joist and floor. This gives the wall the support it needs. They can be tigthened to straighten the wall and return it to its original position.
Martin now knows his basement is safe and can repair the cracks without fear of them reforming.
Sharon G. in Kenney, IL was looking to protect her basement and avoid harmful water damage, so she called Woods Basement Systems to look into her repair options. Sharon met with Design Specialist Greg B., who gave her a free estimate and designed for her a custom-tailored waterproofing system to protect her home.
Foreman Brad P. and his team installed WaterGuard drains along with a Twin Pack sump unit. WaterGuard is a French drain system installed under floor slab for effective drainage with a finished appearance. It redirects water to Twin Pack, which uses dual Zoeller pumps for double water protection. Sharon can rest easy and enjoy a clena, dry basement any time thanks to WaterGuard and Twin Pack!
Michael from Farmer City, Illinois reached out to Woods Basement System once he grew concerned over the stability of his home. He had a brick foundation basement that he had covered with cement several years ago. Over time the cement has cracked and fallen off of the walls due to the home's settlement. Team Woods looked over his basement and agreed, settlement had caused harm to the basement walls. The walls have moved into unsecured positions that needed a permanent repair as well.
Team Woods first installed push piers into the footing of the basement to lock and lift the foundation into a stable position. These strong push piers are a permanent solution to fight against settlement because this piering system locks the home into a secure position. Next, the team installed Geo-Lock wall anchors into the walls to prevent the walls from moving, while also slowing pulling them back to where they were before the settlement.
Michael was eager to use his basement again after this project. A full-coverage foundation repair that ended in a job well done!
Homeowner Arnold from Weldon Spring, Missouri noticed many warning signs that his crawl space was in need of a vapor barrier system. He then called Woods Basement Systems to have a professional look over the space by coming out to his house. He then spoke with system design specialist, Max D., who recommended installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system in his mold and muddy crawl space.
Team Woods installed the new CleanSpace vapor barrier system into the crawl space to completely seal the area from harmful outer elements. This encapsulation system is made out of inorganic materials which is crucial to prevent the system from developing mold or damage. With the new CleanSpace system, Arnold can now use his previously moldy and muddy crawl space as storage space.
Pat C.'s home in Weldon Spring, MO. had a settling foundation. Over the years, the soil beneath this home's footing compacted or eroded away, allowing the footing on top of it to sink. As the footing sank, the house began to sink with it.
The warning signs can be subtle. Things like doors and windows sticking when they are opened or closed or small cracks in the walls can be signs that a foundation is settling. These smaller issues can lead to larger problems like wall failure and sagging floors.
The solution is push piers. These steel cylinders are installed through a bracket attached to the footing. Then they are pressed deep into the ground, where they can reach strong, stable soil or bedrock. This soil or bedrock is compressed and will not compact, making it ideal to support the weigth of the foundation.
Once the piers are installed, the home will be rested on the brackets and supported by the steel piers that reach past the settling soil. This makes for a permanent solution for preventing further settling and can be a great option for lifting the house back to its original position.
