Water and finished basements do not mix. Carolyn R. of Dupo, IL unfortunately found this out the hard way when water got into her basement during a heavy downpour. It soaked her carpet, leaving a mess that took hours to clean up and no amount of fans could dry out. She never wanted to deal with this problem again so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing a waterproofing system.

As part of the waterproofing system, Woods installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a drainage system that is installed on the perimeter of the basement, underneath the concrete floors of the basement which means floors can be finished over the system. It is situated on top of the footing of the basement so it's out of the way of mud that might clog it while it collects water from the foundation walls and wall joints and carries it away to the sump pump for removal.

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!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Job Stories From Dupo, IL
Servicing Exterior Sump Pumps

This home in Dupo, IL. had a pair of sump pumps that were housed outside of the home. This can occur when space is limited inside the home or when there is an extra area on the outside of the home that might frequently experience flooding. 

 

Recently, these pumps were due for a maintenance inspection. Dwayne M. from Woods Basement Systems went out to the home to ensure that the waterproofing systems were still operating nominally. During his inspection, Dwayne checked that each of the pumps was working. He also checked that the discharge lines were clear and leak-free as well as the IceGuard™ attachments. IceGuard™ is an addition that is installed just above ground outside the home that will prevent the sump pump from backing up in the event that the discharge line gets blocked from ice or water. During his inspection, Dwayne noticed that one of the pumps was not operating up to standards. He was able to replace this pump with a new one during that same visit, ensuring that the waterproofing systems around the home were working as well as they possibly could. 

 

With a new pump and all systems checked and working well, this home in Dupo, IL will remian well protected against flooding and water damage.

Waterproofing System Keeps Finished Basement Dry in Dupo, IL

Carolyn R. found out the hard way that water getting in to a finished basement can be annoying at best and devastating at worst. During a heavy downpour, water leaked into her Dupo, IL basement and soaked her carpeted floors as well as damaged the furniture. It took hours to clean up and fans just weren’t doing the trick to dry her basement out. She didn’t want to deal with that situation again so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Chris T. inspected her basement and recommended a waterproofing system.

Woods installed WaterGuard along the foundation walls of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that is installed under the concrete floors of the basement and on top of the footing so it won’t be clogged by mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe sump pump system was installed to receive the water from the WaterGuard and remove it from the basement through the discharge lines. The TripleSafe is made up of a primary, secondary and battery back up pump to ensure the basement will stay dry through severe weather and power outages. IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the home if the discharge lines become frozen or clogged. It gives trapped water an alternative escape route through the slotted openings of the IceGuards.

Carolyn has peace of mind that she won’t ever have to clean up a watery mess in her finished basement because it will remain dry even when weather turns bad.

TripleSafe Inspection in Dupo, Illinois Basement

Like most systems, the TripleSafe sump pump system requires an annual inspection. Tracey and Doug C. of Dupo, Illinois scheduled their inspection to ensure that the pumps are working properly and their basement stays dry.

System design specialist Travis C. inspected the TripleSafe sump pump system to find all was working properly. It is always ideal to find any issue with the system during an inspection than when you need it most. Travis discovered that the humidity in the Dupo basement was high. This basement could greatly benefit from the energy-efficient SaniDry dehumidfier.
