Effective Concrete Leveling & Concrete Sealing

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

Waterproofing and Foundation Support Installed in Villa Grove, IL

Jamie G. of Villa Grove, IL had a failing foundation, sagging floors, and water leaking into his basement. Jamie needed reliable products to fix his basement, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

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.

CleanSpace was installed to the basement walls to help provide control to the water. The CleanSpace will provide a guide for the water to flow into the WaterGuard or sump pump.

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.

Uneven Concrete Slabs Fixed With PolyLevel in O'Fallon, IL

Bill B. of O'Fallon, IL noticed that the concrete slabs in the walkway leading up to his home were uneven. Unaware of the cause and potential issues this could cause, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a free quote.

Systems Design Specialist Jeremy R. evaluated the situation and determined that the concrete was sinking and unevenly settling, which can happen naturally. This can occur due to the weight of the concrete itself in addition to the weight of what the concrete is responsible for holding up. He also determined that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Juan H. to install PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a foam injection that is installed into the concrete in only 4 simple steps and is designed to lift the concrete back to its original position.

Bill can now rest assured knowing that his concrete is back to it original position, no longer putting his home or himself in danger.
