Open Sump Pit & Radon Problem in Hillsboro, IL Open Sump Pit & Radon Problem in Hillsboro, IL

Open sump pump pits are bad for basements for a couple of reasons.  An open pit allows water in the bottom of the sump pit to evaporate back into the basement air and causes musty odors.  When radon gas is present, an open pit gives radon open access to your home as the gas emits from beneath the slab and leaks into your basement. To correct both of these problems, it's important to have a sump pump liner with an air-tight lid.  This Hillsboro, Illinois homeowner contacted us to replace their open sump pit. Woods Basement Systems can retrofit a radon mitigation system for existing sump pump pits to draw the gas from underneath the slab and ventilate it outside.

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 Hillsboro, IL
Hillsboro, IL Leaks Stopped by TripleSafe & WaterGuard at the Source

The last thing any homeowner wants to see is a water leak inside their home. A homeowner, Paula, from Hillsboro, Illinois knew this all too well. Paula wanted a solution to stop water leaks from affecting the health of her basement and leaned on Woods Basement Systems for a solution. She worked with system design specialist, Chris T., to develop a plan to waterproof her basement. After going over the plan, it was decided that a TripleSafe sump pump along with WaterGuard drains would be installed. 

The home previously didn't have a sump pump, so this was first on the list of needs. A sump pump is a system that pumps water leaks out of the home. A TripleSafe sump pump was selected due to its dependability. This system contains three pumps with one primary pump and two backup pumps. If the primary pump ever fails, the system will switch to one of the battery-operated backup pumps. 

The WaterGuard drainage system was installed next in the footing of the basement walls. These are used to collect the pesky water leaks and direct them to the TripleSafe pump. WaterGuards stop water leaks at the source before they can create water damage in the basement. With the help of Woods' top waterproofing products, this basement is ready to take on any water leak!
