Before After
Waterguard Installation in Herrin, IL Waterguard Installation in Herrin, IL

Debra R. of Herrin, Illinois discovered that water was entering her home's basement. She did not want to have to worry about cleaning up a mess every time it stormed, so she called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.

Design specialist Jacob K. assessed the situation and formulated the perfect solution. Foreman Juan H. then traveled to the home to install a CleanSpace wall system and a Waterguard drainage system. The Waterguard drainage system, pictured above, was installed above the footing of the basement. It collects any water that is coming up from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. It then drains the water to the sump pump. 

Debra R. is very happy that she no longer has to worry about her home's basement holding water after heavy rain showers. She now has a waterproof and dry basement.

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
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Basement Waterproofing in Herrin, IL

Ann J. of Herrin, Illinois noticed that water was entering her home's basement after large storms. She did not want to have to keep cleaning up a mess, so she called Woods Basement Systems for help.

PowerBraces consist of steel I-beams that are fastened to the joists above the walls of the basement. The PowerBrace system is adjustable. This means that the PowerBraces can be tightened to help stabilize and straighten the wall.

The Waterguard drainage system was placed above the footing of the basement. It collects any water that is rising from the ground before it reaches the surface of the basement. It then drains the water to the sump pump. The CleanSpace wall system is a plastic liner that is attached to the walls of the basement. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks that may occur behind it.

Herrin, Illinois Basement Waterproofed with WaterGuard and TripleSafe

Herrin, Illinois resident Donald B. was sick of his wet, musty basement. Water began to pool in his basement and mold was evident. Peter N., system design specialist, designed a solution to waterproof his basement.

WaterGuard and TripleSafe were installed by foreman Melvin F. WaterGuard is a perimeter drainage system that collects water and guides it to the TripleSafe sump pump system. TripleSafe is equipped with three pumps to provide insurance against water seepage. A trench drain was also added at the basement entryway. The trench drain collects water and guides it away from the basement.

Now, Donald's basement is free of water, mold and odor.
