Festus, Missouri homeowner Harry K. was distraught when water made its way into his basement.  Previously, Harry had the Geo-Lock wall anchors installed to straighten his bowing walls. Though this can aide in keeping water out, waterproofing is the only way to ensure water stays out. 

CleanSpace guides water leaking in from the walls to the WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system. Because CleanSpace prevents water vapor from escaping into the basement, it keeps the basement humidity low and hinders mold growth.

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.

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

Job Stories From Festus, MO
Sump Pump Installed in Festus, MO Basement

A homeowner in Festus, MO wanted a sump pump installed in their basement, so the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. This system assures protection from common problems with an ordinary pump. It can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump included inside that will help eliminate the water if the first pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water that is entering it. It also features a removable airtight lid which reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps the water out of the house.

PushPiers in Festus, MO

The patented Push Pier system, exclusively from Supportworks, permanently stabilizes your home's foundation. In many cases it can even lift your home back to level. Galvanized steel tube sections are hydraulically driven through steel foundation brackets to reach the depths of competent load-bearing strata. They're locked into place and the weight of your home is transferred from the original, unstable soils, through the piers, to the competent soil or bedrock.

Leaking Festus, MO Basement Fitted With TripleSafe And WaterGuard

Festus, Missouri homeowner Kari E. was fed up with her basement constantly leaking. During extended periods of rain, water would find its way into the space through several different places. Kari was eager to fix the problem, so she called Woods Basement Systems for help.

In order to waterproof the space, foreman Kevin and his team began by installing under-floor WaterGuard drains at the base of the leaking walls to catch leaks and prevent them from making it onto the floor. After this, a TripleSafe sump pump was put in place to pump all of the water caught by the drainage system out of the home. The TripleSafe comes equipped with three separate pumps and is capable of removing over 10,000 gallons of water per hour. Kari couldn't be happier with her dry basement!

Leaky and Bowed Basement Walls Fixed in Festus, MO

Kimberly T. was interested in partially finishing her basement and renting it out for some extra income. However; there were several issues that needed to be remedied before any finishing work could be done. Several walls were slightly bowing, causing cracks in the surface that would leak during heavy rains, and this made the space unfit to inhabit.


System design specialist Jeremy visited the home and determined that the best course of action would be to fix the bowing walls and add in several waterproofing measures. Firstly, PowerBrace supports, I-beams made of strong galvanized steel, were installed against the walls to make them level and provide additional support, and then a CleanSpace wall covering was put over the concrete to keep moisture out of the basement. Then under the floors at the base of the walls, the WaterGuard system was installed to pipe away any water that made it through the cracks, and IceGuard was installed outside on the discharge pipe to prevent freezing.

Dana D. of Festus, Missouri had water damage due to large cracks in her basement, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a solution. Systems design specialist, Thomas W. recommended installing a Twin Pack sump pump, CleanSpace, and WaterGuard. 

Foreman, Greg H. installed the products. The Twin Pack sump pump keeps your home dry from leaks and flooding with its two stainless steel pumps. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier made of inorganic materials used to seal off a crawl space or basement form moisture. It works to collect water that seeps through the basement walls. WaterGuard is installed below the CleanSpace in the perimeter of the basement floor. It takes the collected water and guides it to the sump pump to be pumped out and away from the home. 

Now Dana D. has a dry, healthy basement.

Basement Waterproofed in Festus, MO

Barbara G. of Festus, MO had an alarming amount of water leaking into her basement any time there was bad weather. Over the years, the foundation walls had been stained from the water that came in and mold had grown along the stone bricks. Barbara had a sump pump but it was old and rusted and was doing little to keep the basement dry. The water threatened the belongings she had stored in the basement every time it got in so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Peter N. thoroughly inspected the inside and outside of the basement and recommended installing a waterproofing system.

Over the dingy, water damaged walls, Woods installed CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a thick, durable plastic liner that can be installed over rough or uneven walls and prevents moisture from entering into the basement through the foundation walls. It directs unwanted water to the perimeter drainage system while giving the basement a cleaner and brighter appearance.

WaterGuard was installed along the walls, under the concrete floors of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that will remain free from mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and carries it to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe sump system replaced the old, rusted sump pump. The TripleSafe contains two high-powered, cast-iron pumps and a battery back up pump to ensure that encroaching water is always being pumped out of the basement through the discharge lines, even when weather is severe or there is a power outage. IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the basement if the discharge lines become frozen or clogged by allowing it to escape through its slotted openings.

Barbara is thrilled that she finally has a basement that will stay dry and she no longer has to worry whenever she uses it for storage.

With water leaking into her basement, Sierra W. of Festus, MO wanted to ensure her home was safe from damaging water. Sierra called Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to her leaking problem.

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 provides water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

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.

SilverGlo Insulated Panels were installed to provide additional insulation for the space. These panels help control the environment of the space and helped lower Sierra's energy bills.

A Twin Pack 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 basement, 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. 

Sierra now has a waterproofed basement and can feel safe storing important items in the basement. Woods also provide Sierra with products that would help her energy bills be reduced and keep the basement properly insulated.

Woods came in and installed CleanSpace to seal off the space from moisture. This would keep standing water out of the space, helping prevent mold and rotting wood. 

Woods also installed a SaniDry with a condensation pump. This would also help with the moisture in the crawlspace. The SaniDry filters the moisture out of the air and the condensation pump will pump that moisture out of the house.

CleanSpace and WaterGuard Keep Festus, Missouri Basement Dry

Harry K., Festus, Missouri homeowner, was distraught when water made its way into his basement. Though he had Geo-Lock wall anchors installed to straighten his bowing walls and keep the potential of water leaks down, water still permeated his basement walls. 

System design specialist Brian G. designed a solution to keep Harry's basement dry. Because water was leaking through his basement walls, the CleanSpace wall system was installed. CleanSpace guides water to the perimeter drain system, WaterGuard. This keeps the basement humidy lower and diminishes mold growth. 

The WaterGuard guides water to the TwinPack sump pump system. As another precaution, the IceGuard was installed to provide an exit for water in the event that the discharge lines would become frozen or clogged.

Thanks to CleanSpace and WaterGuard, Harry's basement has gone from wet and musty to dry and comfortable.
