Woods Basement Systems has dealt with structural movement, continued shrinkage and other factors even in new homes—just like this one in Fenton, Missouri. Crack injections are merely a band-aid, and the crack will often get larger and re-leak. We use a method we've developed to permanently fix your wall crack and stop leakage.
For many homes with flooded basements, like this one in Fenton, Missouri, a sump pump is a necessary element of a basement waterproofing system. Woods Basement Systems recommends a Zoeller sump pump. This pump was chosen as the best from among nearly 50 models and is very quiet due to the airtight sump pump cover; the discharge line is equipped with 2 rubber fittings for additional sound and vibration reduction.
Helical anchors have been used by Woods Basement Systems to stabilize foundation and retaining walls like this home in Fenton, Missouri for years because of their effectiveness. Helical anchors are widely accepted and used by engineers, architects, and contractors to stabilize bowing basement walls. In fact, in 1992, wall anchor systems were identified by a Chief Appraiser for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development as the most effective means of stabilizing bowing foundation walls.

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.

Stair step and vertical cracks in foundation walls like the ones Delores T. noticed in her Fenton, MO home are signs of foundation settlement. Soil conditions on the exterior of the foundation is the major cause of settlement. Soil can shrink and create voids when dry, move when wet or compress if it wasn’t compacted properly when the home was built, all of which cause the foundation to settle. If the foundation doesn’t settle uniformly, it can lead to the separations and cracks, which is why Delores called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Push Piers.
Woods' Specialist Adam R. designed the perfect system for Dolores's home. Lead Foreman Jose L. installed the Push Piers inside the basement of the home. Push Piers are made of high-strength steel sections that are hydraulically driven through steel brackets down into competent, load-bearing soil or bedrock. They transfer the weight of the home from the unstable soil conditions responsible for the settlement to the competent soil or bedrock. In many cases, Push Piers can also lift the home back to level position. After the Push Piers are in place and the home has been lifted, the Push Piers are attached to the concrete footing and locked into place to permanently stabilize the foundation. When Push Piers are installed inside the home, they are cemented over to flush position with the rest of the basement floor.
Delores now has peace of mind that his foundation and home are safe and permanently stable.
Sean H. of Fenton, MO contacted Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate on his sinking concrete.

Robin E. of Fenton, MO had cracks in her foundation. Water leaked in through the cracks during rainy weather and the leaks were getting worse with every year that went by. She was worried that the items she had stored in her basement would be damaged if she left it any longer so she called Woods Basements Systems. After Design Specialist Paul W. inspected the basement, he found the best solution for the water problem would be a waterproofing system.
Woods installed the WaterGuard interior drainage system under the cement floors along the perimeter the of basement. WaterGuard is situated on top of the concrete footing of the home, unlike other drainage systems, out of the way of any mud or debris that might clog it as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to the sump pump.
The TripleSafe was installed to take the water from the WaterGuard and expel it safely out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains two powerful cast-iron pumps and a battery back up pump within its airtight sealed sump liner. It can handle anything from light drizzles to severe thunderstorms and keep the basement dry during power outages.
On the exterior of the home, Woods installed IceGuards on the discharge lines. IceGuards have slotted openings to allow water to escape into the yard if the lines become frozen or clogged with snow, preventing it from getting back into the basement.
Robin E. is relieved she won’t have to deal with a wet basement anymore and her stored belongings are safe from water damage.
Kathryn K. of Fenton, MO had rooms in her home that would never stay cool in the summer and were bitterly cold in the winter. She was spending so much money to heat and cool her home but it was never comfortable so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free energy audit. Woods recommended sealing the attic and installing new insulation.
Woods sealed air leaks throughout the attic with spray foam to prevent heated or cooled air from getting out and outside air from getting in.
Woods blew cellulose insulation into the flat parts of the attic. Cellulose insulation is made of recycled newspaper treated with a nontoxic borate solution to it noncombustible and resistant to mold and insects. It blankets the attic and forms a denser insulating layer than fiberglass.
In the area of the attic with a cathedral ceiling, a two-part spray foam insulation was coated onto the walls. The expanding spray foam completely eliminates any air leaks. It cures and hardens in minutes and is a very high performing insulation.
Kathryn is thrilled that her home is much more comfortable and her heating and cooling bills are lower.
Water can wreak havoc on finished basements which Haley M. of Fenton, MO learned the hard way. Each time there was a downpour, there were leaks in her beautiful finished basement without fail.

This week, Orville and Susy had Woods Basement Systems come out to have their patio PolyLEVELed. They gave Woods a call to talk about their once flat patio and how now it had risen and also sunk in certain spots. They needed to know what could be done to have it releveled to the original height of other concrete slabs around them. Woods sent out a specialist to inspect the problem and give them more information about what was happening and the best possible solutions for patio. Orville and Susy purchased PolyLEVEL, which is the best solution to any concrete slab raising today.
PolyLEVEL is a very straight forward and simple task when you know what you’re doing and have the right company to do it for you. To begin, a penny sized hole about 5/8th of an inch is drilled in to the concrete slabs that need to be lifted. Then polyurethane foam is shot down under the slabs filling in all the holes and dips allowing the entire slab to rise as one piece. Polyurethane is an amazing material as it eco-friendly and very light, yet industrially strong. Now that everything is level, the holes are patched up and it is all done. Orville and Susy came out to see their finished patio and are astonished with what is looks like. They can get back to enjoying their summer out on the patio with friends and family. If you know someone or are looking to have a PolyLEVEL inspection done, give us a call here at woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.
