Job Stories From Fayette County, IL
Waterproofing in St. Elmo, IL

t is important for any home's basement to stay dry, especially if the basement is used as a livable space. That is why many homeowners have decided to contact Woods Basement Systems about waterproofing their homes.

Jheri and Brandon G. of st. Elmo, IL saw the value of a clean basement and decided to contact Woods Basement Systems for a waterproofing. Our WaterGuard drainage system was installed below the perimeter of her basement floors where it is able to guide any water from leaky walls into our TripleSafe sump pump to ensure a dry and clean basement. Along with an exterior discharge line and our IceGuard which prevents the discharge line from freezing over, Erin's basement will be dry for many years to come.

WaterGuard Installed in Vandalia, IL

Randall Q. of Vandalia, IL contacted Woods Basement Systems with concerns about the standing water in his basement. The water was leaking in from outside and had no way to drain.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

Waterproofing System installed in St. Elmo, IL

Cindi and Tom F. of St. Elmo, IL had water leaking into their basement every time it rained. Their basement was unlivable so they called Woods Basement Systems. Basement Design Specialist Thomas W. assessed their water problem and found the best solution.

Woods Basement Systems installed a waterproofing system. WaterGuard was installed on top of the concrete footing and against the basement walls. The WaterGuard is under the concrete floor of the basement so it stays out of sight while it collects any water seeping in from the walls and wall joints and guides the water to the sump pump.

A TripleSafe sump pump was installed as well. The TripleSafe consists of three pumps: a primary pump, a secondary pump and a battery back up pump. Each are situated at different levels within the liner to provide protection even in severe weather and power outages. The TripleSafe pumps the water safely out the discharge lines into the yard.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevents water that is being pumped out from coming back into the basement if the discharge lines have become clogged or frozen. It gives water an alternative escape route through its slotted openings.

Cindi and Tom F. are happy to know that, no matter the weather outside, their basement inside will remain dry and livable.

Driveway and Walkway Leveled in Brownstown, IL

The concrete driveway and walkway of Kurt K.’s Brownstone, IL home were uneven. Some of the concrete slabs in the driveway and walkway were sinking which caused them to pull away from the house and were no longer level with the other slabs, creating tripping hazards. Kurt didn’t want to deal with replacing his driveway and walkway so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended PolyLevel.

PolyLevel was injected under the concrete slabs of the walkway and driveway. It’s an expanding polymer foam that lifts and levels the concrete. It cures quickly so the concrete driveway and walkway can be used in about 15 minutes, meaning far less downtime than with traditional mudjacking. It’s also waterproof when it cures so it won’t be washed away.

Kurt is glad he can use his concrete walkway and driveway without worrying about tripping.

Crawlspaces Insulated and Encapsulated in St. Elmo, IL

Randy and Jennifer I. of St. Elmo, IL had two crawlspaces that were causing major issues in their home. Standing water would get into their crawlspaces which caused mold to grow on the walls and the beams above to rot. The floors above the larger crawlspace were sagging because of the weakened beams. Drafts and musty smells came into their home from their crawlspace, as well, so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Greg B. inspected the crawlspaces and recommended installing a crawlspace encapsulation system as well as SmartJacks.

SmartJacks were installed along the beams of the larger crawlspace. SmartJacks are adjustable steel columns that are held in place by concrete footings that will support and stabilize floors in place and can also lift floors back to their original position.

SilverGlo Insulation Panels were installed along the walls of the crawlspaces. SilverGlo is made of rigid polystyrene foam insulate the crawlspace and prevents air infiltration. It’s waterproof so it forms a moisture barrier over the walls and directs water to the perimeter drainage system.

CleanSpace was installed along the walls and floors of the crawlspaces. CleanSpace is a durable, thick plastic liner that forms a vapor barrier between the foundation walls and dirt floors which will reduce humidity in the crawlspace and prevent any moisture from getting in.

Along the floors of the crawlspaces, drainage matting was installed. It’s dimpled design provides channels for standing water to disperse to the perimeter drainage system.

SmartPipe was installed along the foundation walls of the basement. It’s a drainage system that has rows of holes covered in filter fabric so it won’t become clogged by mud or debris as it collects water from the walls and floors of the crawlspace and takes it to the sump pumps for removal.

In the larger crawlspace, the TripleSafe was installed to take the water from WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the crawlspace through its discharge lines. It contains three powerful pumps, including a battery back up pump, to ensure that in all weather conditions or power outages, the crawlspace will remain dry.

In the smaller crawlspace, the SmartSump was installed. The SmartSump is designed to fit seamlessly with the CleanSpace barrier and is equipped with a powerful, cast iron pump.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the crawlspaces. IceGuards were designed to prevent water from re-entering the crawlspace if the lines become frozen or clogged by allowing it to escape through slotted openings.

The SaniDry Dehumidifier was installed in the larger crawlspace. It keeps the relative humidity low in the crawlspaces to prevent musty smells and rot.

Randy and Jennifer are glad they can finally use their crawlspace for storage without worries of water damage and that they’ll no longer have drafts or musty smells coming from their crawlspaces.
