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

Maintaining a Waterproofing System

Ron W. from Godfrey, IL. had a waterproofing system in his basement designed to drain water from beneath the floor and off the wall and drain it to the TripleSafe™ sump pump system. This system would collect the water before it had a chance to collect on the floor of the basement and cause a flood and pump it away from the home so that it wouldn't simply leak back inside. 


If parts of this system were to stop working, the entire system may not be able to work properly. That's why waterproofing expert Ben S. from Woods Basement Systems scheduled a routine maintenance check to make sure everything was working. Ben would check the drainage system to make sure there was no debris blocking water flow and any water it collected could still flow. He also checked the TripleSafe™ sump pump system to make sure all the pumps work and the extra safety features like the WaterWatch™ alarm still worked. 


It's important to check and maintain waterproofing systems over time to make sure they work properly. This home in Godfrey, IL. will continue to be protected from flooding and water damage thanks to the great service and dedication of the Woods Basement Systems team.

The rods are attached to steel wall plates on the inside of the walls and tightened to permanently stabilize the walls in place and prevent future damage to the walls.

The TripleSafe offers multiple layers of protection from flooding because it contains three powerful pumps, including a battery back up pump, so the basement will remain dry even in severe weather or power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home to prevent water from backing up into the basement. In the event that the lines become frozen or blocked by snow, the IceGuards have slotted openings that allow trapped water to escape into the yard.

Donna M.’s peace of mind has been restored now that her foundation walls are secure and her basement will remain dry.

Godfrey, IL Home Gets Put in Line with Geo-Lock Wall Achors

William's basement block wall was a Stage 3 as far as block foundation issues go. That means there was significant stair step cracking and sifting of the bottom layer of blocks. If William didn't do something soon, the wall was in danger of collapsing. So William called Woods Basement Systems, Inc. 

Geo-Lock wall anchors were used to straighten everything out.

Over time, this can even straighten out the wall all together. 

William can now rest easy, knowing Woods saved his basement wall.
