Lisa B. of Imperial, MO had a retaining wall between her yard and her neighbor’s property that was cracking and tilting. She was worried in might turn into an even bigger problem so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.
Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed along the retaining wall, as shown in the picture, to counteract the pressure on the outside of the wall that was causing it to fail. They permanently stabilize the wall in place and can also straighten the wall, in most cases, by fighting the anchors during dry periods.
Joe R. of Imperial, Missouri was concerned about the vertical, expanding cracks in his foundation wall. He attempted to fill in the cracks with an epoxi-injection, but the wall continued to move. Woods Basement Systems installed the PowerBrace Wall Repair System in the customer's home and now the wall is permanently stabilized.
Walls can shift and bow over time. That’s why Steve T called Woods Basement Systems when he noticed his basement walls were bowing. System Design Specialist Jeremy R was able to come up with a solution to the problem.
Foreman Jeremy R installed a GeoLock Wall Anchor, shown above, in Steve’s basement. The first part of the system attaches to the wall and the second attaches to stable soil away from the house. This will pull the walls back to where they are supposed to be.

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®.

This Imperial, Missouri basement remained unfinished and was primarily used for storage until Spring 2020. The homeowners worked with our Total Basement Finishing Design Specialist, Frank Unger, to layout an all-new floorplan for the basement. And that's when the transformation began.
These homeowners had already put down their own flooring, but wanted to have the walls done as well. Our specialist knew wood studs, fiberglass insulation, and drywall can spell disaster in the event of a leak or high humidity. So, Woods Basement Systems framed the basement with metal studs and finished the walls with the inorganic EverLast Basement Wall Panels, made from 2 1/2-inch thick rigid foam insulation with 1/2-inch thick cement board cladding. The cement board is finished with an off-white vinyl surface treatment.
What was once a cold, bare, and dark unfinished basement used only for storage is now a beautifully-finished, warm, and bright basement playroom and sewing room. What a transformation!
