Du Quoin, IL homeowner John noticed horizontal and stair step cracks around the entire perimeter of his basement walls. This concerned him becasue the area was used by his family in a variety of ways. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call. System Design Specialist Brenton K. developed a plan to fix the walls. 

Foreman Jeremy R. and his crew installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors on each wall to pull the walls back to straight. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are made of steel so they will not rust. The rods are anchored to steel plates behind the active soil surrounding the house. The rods provide resistance and over time can be tightened to bring the wall back to its original position. 

John L. now has piece of mind that his walls will not bow anymore and the area will be drier.

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!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways
