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!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps

Job Stories From Freeburg, IL
Bowing Freeburg, IL Basement Wall Supported With GeoLock and PowerBrace

Rosemary of Freeburg, Illinois was greatly concerned with one of her basement walls. This wall was cracking quite badly and bowing in, causing her to worry about a potential collapse. Wanted the wall fixed quickly and professionally, Rosemary called Woods Basement Systems. 

System design specialist Jeremy visited the home and inspected the wall before coming up with a solution that would fit Rosemary's budget and solve her problem. That solution involved installing two different types of wall supports, GeoLock wall anchors and PowerBrace beams. GeoLock anchors are driven far out into the firmer soil surrounding the home and are connected to plates on the interior surface of the wall to pull the walls outward, while PowerBrace beams are steel supports that are placed against the wall on the inside. Both of these products are extremely effective at fixing bowing walls and supporting them for years to come. 

Badly Cracked and Bowed Concrete Block Walls in Freeburg, IL Righted With PowerBraces

Homeowner Gary V. and his wife had lived in their home for over 30 years, but they were now interested in selling the property and moving. But before they could even consider putting the home on the market, there was a pressing issue in the basement to take care of. The couple first noticed cracking and deformation in their cement-block basement walls about a decade ago, and the problem only got worse. When Gary called Woods Basement Systems several months ago, the walls were in very bad shape. The cracking was now quite severe and the walls were badly bowing, putting them at risk for collapse.

Jeremy, system design specialist, visited the home and crafted a solution for Gary and his wife that would solve their problem. A Woods Basement Systems team got to work on the basement, installing 30 PowerBrace supports throughout the space. To put these in place, adjustable steel rods are anchored in the firm, undisturbed soil nearly 10 feet away from the foundation. These extend from their anchor points back to the inside surface of the basement, effectively pulling the walls back outward, making them level and preventing any additional bowing.

Alan of Freeburg, Illinois needed a permanent solution to fix his home's unaligned wall. This wall had created damage throughout the rest of the house and needed to be adjusted to prevent further damage.

Freeburg, Illinois homeowner Pam had a finished basement used for playing games and having fun. She wanted to make sure her floors could hold up to the activity. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist John S. developed a plan for her. 

The Foreman and his crew installed the ThermalDry Elite flooring. It is installed in tiles that sit off the floor. This keeps the flooring warmer and gives room for air to move and dry out the area. The perk of the tile shape over traditional carpet is the tiles can be lifted when wet and replaced when damaged. 

Pam now has a floor to keep up with her basement lifestyle. 

Waterproofing in Freeburg, Illinois

Chris S. of Freeburg, Illinois had water leaking into his basement, so he decided to call Woods Basement Systems for help. Systems design specialist, John S. found a solution and recommended installing a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard, and IceGuard.

The TripleSafe sump pump uses its three-in-one system to keep your home dry which includes a primary pump, a secondary pump, and a backup battery-powered pump for extra protection. WaterGuard is installed in the perimeter of the basement and it collects water that seeps through basement walls and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.

We removed a large map from the basement wall and found a crack behind it. The crack is about 1/32 inch at the largest (top) and runs from the top of the foundation wall to the floor of the basement at an angle. There is another crack radiating from it forming a "Y". I would like you to come and take a look at your earliest convenience. Thank You, Sue Moritz
