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

Tony H. of Herculaneum, Missouri wanted to do some reventative waterproofing work, so he decided to call Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Pete L. recommended installing a Twin Pack pump, WaterGuard, and IceGuard. 

Foreman, Mason S. installed the products. The Twin Pack sump pump includes two stainless steel pumps that are guaranteed to protect your home from leaks and floods.

Waterproofing in Herculaneum, MO

Home owners in Herculaneum, MO had standing water in their basement. The water did not allow them to use the space for storing personal items and threatened the home with mold. Woods Basement Systems installed products to help get the water out of the space.

WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and  personal belongings.

A Triple Safe 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. 

Crawlspace Redone in Herculaneum, MO

James and Jenny S. in Herculaneum, MO had water leaking into his crawlspace. They knew this water would eventually cause major damages to their home, like mold and rotting wood. Woods Basement Systems was able to provide James and Jenny with a solution to their water issue.

Woods installed CleanSpace to seal off the crawlspace from outside moisture. This would reduce the risk of mold and rotting wood by eliminating the amount of moisture in the crawlspace. A drainage mat was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. Vent covers are fit to the vents of the home to create an air tight seal that prevents moisture from seep through.

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

A SaniDry was installed to filter moisture out of the air in the crawlspace. A SaniDry is a dehumidifier for the space and will help control the humidity. Controlling the humidity of the crawlspace will reduce energy bills and make the home more comfortable because the air that is moving into the house is more controlled.The SaniDry system also filters moisture out of the air and makes the crawlspace less humid. Controlling the humidity in the crawlspace is important to preventing mold. The less moisture, the harder it is for the mold to grow.

A TripleSafe 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 crawlspace, 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. 

Tim and Jenny can now feel confident that there will not be mold growing in their crawlspace. As an added bonus, Tim and Jenny's energy bills were also reduced.
