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!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

CleanSpace Installation in Grafton, IL

Susan R. of Grafton, IL gave Woods Basement System a call when she noticed that a musty smell was coming from the lower level of her home. Many homeowners are not aware of the importance of the crawlspace in their home. Having a dirt crawlspace causes a high humidity level which leads to water vapor moving into the upper level of the home. A damp crawlspace allows mold to reproduce and send toxic mold spores into the air. It is completely unhealthy!

System design specialist, Christopher B. went to do a home inspection and further discuss with the homeowner a design he created that would provide a healthy and clean environment. Foreman, James L. did a Cleanspace Encapsulation System installation on the crawlspace. This system consists of a of a 7- layer liner material that is ran across the floor and up the wall to completely seal it off from the earth. The CleanSpace also stops all water vapor from coming in.

Because of the CleanSpace Encapsulation System, Susan R. has a clean, bright, and healthy crawlspace.

Over the years, there had been areas patched underneath her floors and the support beams in the crawlspace had been haphazardly propped up with stones and cinderblocks but the her floors continued to get worse. Susan was worried they might fail altogether and she’d have a massive problem on her hands so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems.

They stabilize the floors so they won’t move any further and can even lift floors back to level position.
