Job Stories From Edgar County, IL
Leaky Basement in Webster Groves, MO

One Webster Groves home has been through at least three different homeowners, but it was the latest homeowner who inherited and finally decided to resolve his wet basement problem.

When William D. purchased his home, the basement included two existing sump pump systems.  Unfortunately, the two sump pumps were not enough to keep his basement dry.  Hydrostatic pressure on the exterior caused the basement walls to crack and leak, groundwater would seep in between the walls and floor, and rainwater would run underneath the basement door and across the basement floor.  Moisture penetrating the basement walls caused paint to crack and chip.  Eventually, his existing sump pumps failed.  Standing water jeopardized items stored in the basement and threatened to ruin William's valuables.

William's story changed the moment he called Woods Basement Systems.  He met with System Design Specialist Rich Obermeier, who carefully inspected William's basement and thoroughly discussed William's goals.  Foreman Michael Jones, Jr. completely removed the failed sump pumps and installed a brand-new TripleSafe sump pump system, including two primary pumps and a third battery backup sump pump to keep William's basement dry all the time.  The crew also installed WaterGuard along the basement perimeter to drain groundwater seepage from the wall-floor joint directly to the sump pump.

William's project also included the IceGuard sump pump discharge line system to prevent his sump pump discharge pipes from freezing in the winter.  William is very impressed with his system, the crew, and our company.  Today, he's free to use his basement for storage and will never have to worry about groundwater leaks again!

TripleSafe and WaterGuard Installed in Paris, Illinois

Paris, Illinois homeowners Warren and Kathy K. were troubled when water leaked into their basement where the floor meets the wall. The water posed a risk for mold and rotting. Fortunately, system design specialist Kevin E. designed a solution to combat the leaking water.

WaterGuard and TripleSafe were installed to keep their basement dry. WaterGuard is a perimeter drainage system that guides water to the TripleSafe sump pump system. The TripleSafe system is equipped with three pumps to ensure water will always be pumped out.

Warren and Kathy can now enjoy their waterproofed basement worry free.

WaterGuard Installed in Hume, IL

Richard C. with a local Hume, IL business had water leaking into the basement of the office. The business used the basement for storing important documents and equipment. Woods Basement Systems was able to install products to prevent water from threatening the businesses important property.

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 provide escape for any unwanted water in the space. Water that may still get into the space will be pumped out through a discharge line that leads to the yard. If this line becomes frozen or backed up, IceGuard will prevent the water from receding back into the basement.

Crawlspace Sealed in Paris, IL

Larry and Miriam S. of Paris, IL had water leaking into their crawlspace. The water would not drain, therefore mold and rotting wood began to form in the space. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to seal off the space and prevent water from getting in.

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 also installed a SaniDry. The SaniDry system filters moisture out of the air and makes the crawlspace less humid. Controlling the humidity in the crawlspace is important to preventing mold. The less moisture, the harder it is for the mold to grow.

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 crawlspace, 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. 

WaterGuard Installed in Chrisman, Illinois

Chrisman, Illinois resident Libby H. was troubled by water leaking into her basement where the floor meets the wall. The water risked damaging her valuables. A Woods Basement Systems system design specialist designed a solution.

WaterGuard and CleanSpace Resolve Hidden Leaks in East Alton, IL

Al P. of East Alton, IL had a waterproofing system. It didn’t extend throughout his entire finished basement, however, so he was getting leaks behind his finished walls. The wood frames and walls were water damaged and rotting so he called Woods Basement Systems. After Design Specialist Brandon B. inspected the basement, he found that the best solution for the hidden leaks would be to extend the waterproofing system to the entire basement.

Woods installed CleanSpace over the foundation walls. CleanSpace is a thick, durable plastic moisture barrier that prevents moisture from entering the basement, instead directing it down to the perimeter drainage system below. It’s mold resistant and also gives the basement a much brighter and cleaner appearance.

Woods extended the interior drainage system with WaterGuard. WaterGuard is installed under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard sits on top of the concrete footing so it won’t be clogged by silt and debris as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump already in place for removal.

Al P is glad that he’s finally taken care of his water problem and he no longer has to deal with hidden leaks.

Wayne P. of Paris, Illinois noticed that water was entering his home's basement every time it stormed. He did not want to have to keep cleaning up a mess, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

The Waterguard drainage system was installed above the footing of the basement. It collects and drains any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. 

Wayne P. no longer has to worry about his home's basement flooding. He now has a dry and waterproof home.

Marc E. of Paris, Illinois noticed that a few of his home's walls were bowing and cracking. He did not want the problem to get any worse or cause safety concerns, so he called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.

Design specialist Kevin E. assessed the problem and decided the best option was to install wall anchors. Foreman Jeremy R. then headed to the home to get the job started.

Wall anchors extend from the inside of the basement walls to the hard packed soil outside. The steel anchors help stabilize and prevent any further movement of the walls.

Marc E. no longer has to worry about his home's walls cracking or bowing. He now has safe and stable basement walls.

This system only takes 4 steps and the job is done! Rather than using a mud and concrete mixture like other repair options, PolyLEVEL uses a high-density injection foam to raise the concrete back to its original position. It also has a quicker cure time than other repair options. All it takes is 15 minutes and the concrete can be driven or walked on. 

Roger L. is now pleased with the restoration of his property.

Basement Wall Repair in St. Louis, Mo

 

Anita C. of St. Louis, MO became concerned about the stability of her home when she discovered her basement walls were bowing inward so she gave Woods Basement System a call.

System design specialist, Chris A. did an inspection on the home and created a design that would ensure the homeowner stability. Foreman, Mason S. then did a PowerBrace Wall Repair System installation. Basement walls begin to bow inward when the soil around the home causes an intense amount of pressure. This system consists of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. This prevents further inward movement from occurring. The PowerBrace also permanently stabilizes the home and potentially straightens the walls over time. 

Anita C. no longer has to worry about the stability of her home.

Water Stained Basement Protected by WaterGuard & TripleSafe in Hume, IL

Mike of Hume, Illinois had dealt with a stained, wet basement for several years and wanted to find a permanent solution to protect his basement. Mike called Woods Basement Systems to get a professionals opinion on the basement. 

Team Woods came out to the home and investigated the basement to find an optimal solution for the water damaged home. To solve Mike's water damage issue, WaterGuard and TripleSafe were installed to protect and waterproof the basement. 

WaterGuard is a french drain system that collects all water that enters the home, while a TripleSafe sump pump is a pump that is installed to discard of any water that was collected by the drains.

Sealed Entrance to a Crawlspace

Many crawlspaces are left unsealed and unprotected from the outside air. This outside air can enter the crawlspace and bring with it hot, humid air in the summer and cold air in the winter. This outside air can decrease the comfort of the home by fighting against the conditioned air inside, and can decrease the home's energy efficiency. The moisture in the air can also increase the rate at which wood in the crawlspace rots and can support mold growth throughout the entire home.

 

To protect the home against such threats, it is important to encapsulate the crawlspace. By incapsulating the area with a liner such as CleanSpace™, outside air, as well as water and water vapor, is blocked from entering the home. This will ensure the home stays safe and healthy. But, while CleanSpace™ can seal off the space, if the crawlspace has an exterior door, then that door could still be an access point for unconditioned and unwanted outside air to enter the crawlspace.

 

That's why technician Dwayne M. installed an air-tight and sealable door to the crawlspace. This door will block unwanted outside air and help keep the protected inside air in. Just a simple, sealable door like this will help improve the home's energy efficiency by blocking unconditioned and uncomfortable outside air from entering the home. 

 

This crawlspace is healthier now, thanks to a sealed door that blocks the outside elements. Once the space gets incapsulated, the entire home will enjoy the benefits of comfortable air and an increase in energy efficiency.
