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 Energy, IL
CleanSpace, TerraBlock, and SilverGlo Installed in Affton, MO

Affton, Missouri homeowner Barbara tried home fixes to her musty gravel crawl space. When they didn't help she gave Woods Basement Systems a call. System Design Specialist Brandon B. devleoped a solution. 

Foreman James L. and his crew installed crawl space encapsulation, including CleanSpace with drainage matting, SilverGlo insulation, TerraBlock insulation, Vent Covers, and a SaniDry Sedona. 

A full crawl space encapsultion works to keep the crawl space at a low relative humidity. It also seals off the crawl space from the dirt, allergens, mold, and critters that can get in when it is open and vented. 

Vent Covers are gasketed covers for the crawl space vents. They keep the weather and air out of the space reducing the relative humidity, keeping the temperature consistent, and keeps pest out. 

CleanSpace is an inorganic anti-microbial vapor barrier that seals the crawl space in. This will reduce allergens in the air, increasing the air quality and smell. It also provides energy savings because dry air is cheaper to heat and cool. 

TerraBlock under the CleanSpace is a great way to insulate the floor of a gravel crawl space. It adds to the value of the encapsulation by increasing energy savings. It is lined with a vapor barrier and thicker than CleanSpace so it cannot be punctured and makes a softer surface for you and service professional who need to be in the space. 

Drainage matting is that extra layer of protection from moisture seeping in through the floor. It gives the water vapor that enters through the ground a path to follow to the sump pump to leave the crawl space.

SilverGlo insulation goes on the walls for added R-Value insulation. The tiny graphite particles reflect the cool or warm air back into the space doubling the efficiency.  

A SaniDry Sedona is the perfect finishing element. It can filter 120 pints of liquid from the air in using the same electricity as a 40-pint unit. It is the only Energy Star rated dehumidifier. At 60 pounds it is easy to move around in the crawl space and is self-draining. It filters the air to remove dust mite droppings and other allergens as well. 

Barbara now has a dry, odor-free crawl space that she can use for storage.

CleanSpace Encapsulation System Makes Crawl Space Usable in O'Fallon, IL

Michelle O. of O’Fallon, IL had a damp and humid crawl space in her home. The moisture in her crawl space was causing the wooden floor joists above to rot. Metal pipes as well as the floor support system she’d had installed by a different company were rusting due to the high relative humidity. The flimsy plastic liner she had in the crawl space did little to nothing to keep moisture out so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free inspection. After assessing the crawl space, Design Specialist John S. recommended a crawl space encapsulation system.

Over the foundation walls and dirt floors, Woods installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a durable plastic moisture barrier that is secured in place to seal out moisture and keep the crawl space dry and usable. It’s mold resistant and its bright white color maximizes available light within the crawl space.

Drainage Matting was installed under the CleanSpace along the dirt floors of the crawl space. Drainage Matting is dimpled to prove channels for moisture from the dirt floors to disperse.

The SaniDry dehumidifier was also installed in the crawl space. The SaniDry dehumidifier is as energy efficient as smaller store-bought units but much more powerful. It can remove up to 109 pints of water from crawl space air in a day. It keeps relative humidity low to prevent the conditions that cause rot, rust and mold.

Michelle O. has peace of mind that her crawl space will remain dry and that she can safely use it for storage.

Energy Bill Reduced in Ellisville, MO

Having an improperly sealed crawlspace can cause mold, rotting wood, high energy bills, and many other issues with your home. Ronald and Mary M. of Ellisville, MO were experiencing high energy bills and wanted to reduce them.

Improperly sealed crawlspaces make it more difficult to heat and cool your home. This is because air rises, whether it be hot or cold. If the air in your crawlspace is cold and you are trying to warm up your home, the air conditioning will have to work harder to warm the house. The cold air can also make the floors cold, making it uncomfortable to walk on.

These conditions can be fixed by controlling the climate of your crawlspace. Ronald and Mary M. had Woods Basement Systems come in and install products that would do this.

Basement Dehumidifier In Olney, IL

Olney residents, Sally & Robert had a very humid basement.  Because it was a large space, they were not sure what kind of dehumidifier would be able to work for them.  A friend referred them to Woods Basement Systems and they set up a free consultation with representative, Robert Millerbaugh.

After a thorough assessment, Millerbaugh suggested the innovative SaniDry XP dehumidifier.  The couple appealed to this products because it was specially made for large spaces, and it was very powerful yet energy efficient.  They scheduled the installation for the following month.

Radon Mitigation System and Sump Cover Installed in Edwardsville, IL

Robert of Edwardsville, IL grew concerned when he found out he had high levels of Radon seeping into his home from his basement. Wanting something to be done, he contacted Woods Basement Systems, Inc., and the company sent their System Design Specialist, David, to Robert's home to figure out what needed to be done. 

David believed Robert needed not only a new sump cover but also a radon mitigation system to help eliminate the high levels of radon in his basement. Robert agreed with David's diagnosis and scheduled an appointment for Woods Basement Systems, Inc. to send someone to install everything.

Within two weeks, Woods Basement Systems, Inc. sent their Dr. Energy Saver foreman, Mike, to Robert's house in Edwardsville, and he and his crew replaced the sump cover as well as installed PVC piping along the basement wall of Robert's utility closet. The piping led from the basement to the garage, and it followed up to the attic where Mike placed a radon mitigation fan to release the radon into the atmosphere through the exhaust he installed on the roof. Once everything was completed, Mike suggested to Robert to contact the company for someone to stop by within the next thirty days to perform a retest in order to make sure the mitigation system was working properly. 

After Mike and his crew left, Robert was satisfied with the work that was performed and felt at ease now that he didn't have to worry about the radon within his home anymore. 

Geo-Lock Foundation & CleanSpace in Ballwin, MO

Ballwin resident, Mary O, was concerned about the deterioration of her homes foundation over the years.  The basement walls were bowing & buckling, and the crawl space grew wet with a musty smell.  She was referred by a friend to call Woods Basement Systems.

On July 3rd, 2014, representative, Chris Tite visited Mary’s home to diagnose what was causing her issues.  After his assessment, Chris explained to Mary that the foundation soil was exceeding way too much pressure on the outside walls.  He suggested that a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System will prevent them from getting worse, as well as help straighten them back to normal.  He also informed her on the state-of-the-art CleanSpace Liner that would act as a barrier from moisture, outside air, as well as pests.  This process of crawl space encapsulation would get rid of the musty smell.  Mary felt comfortable with Chris’s knowledge as well as Wood’s access to the high-tech materials, she decided Woods Basement Systems was the right one for the job. 

On July 17th, foreman Todd Wells and his crew began the transformation.  The anchors were inserted in the soil outside the foundation.  There, they are connected to the foundation walls by a steel rod to apply pressure.  This procedure helps form them back to its original position.  Mary’s home required 50 feet of CleanSpace liner to cover her entire crawl space.  The liner will not only prevent the musty smell, but will also help save energy costs.

In just two days, the entire job was complete and Mary could not be happier with the results.  She is now more comfortable knowing her home's foundation is safe, clean and warranted.

Saving Energy with CleanSpace

Sheila and Dale were on a mission to make their home more comfortable and energy efficient so they sought out the guidance of Dr. Energy Saver.

The CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system was installed to isolate the house from the earth.

Finding Comfort in Moscow Mills

Tim was living a very uncomfortable life in his Moscow Mills home. His first floor and master bedroom were drafty, the insulation from the laundry room was filling soffits, which restricted air flow, and on top of all that, Tim was basically paying to live in discomfort through his energy bills.

Dr. Energy Saver was on the case. By using the Stack Effect principle, where air leaking out of the home causes air to in, we were able to see that unwanted air was being sucked into the basement and the good conditioned air was escaping from the attic. Dr. Energy Saver installed rim joists and use spray foam in the basement to create a thermal barrier against air leaking in to reduce the first floor draft and used similar tactics to handle the comfort abilities and energy costs in the home.

Tim can now live in complete contentment thanks to Dr. Energy Saver.

Woods Solves Cold Basement Issue in St. Louis, MO

A St. Louis, MO customer called Woods Basement Systems in a panic because she had recently had work done by another company in her basement, yet there was still water seeping through the cracks.  She was very unsatisfied with the previous work that had been done, and all she had to show was an uneven chain link fence, concrete poured in her yard, and a cut cable line. 

Woods sent out the Production Manager to inspect the issues and found that the windows that had been installed were measured incorrectly, which caused cracks and the temperature in the basement to drop.  The customer had Woods install Everlast windows and scheduled an appointment with Dr. Energy Saver.

The customer was very satisfied with the work done by Woods Basement Systems, and can now live comfortably in her basement.
