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

Job Stories From Jacksonville, IL
Waterproofing in Jacksonville, IL Basement

Rich H. of Jacksonville, Illinois noticed that his home's basement was collecting water after heavy rain showers. He did not want to have to deal with a mess every time it stormed, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help. 

Design specialist Brandon B. assessed the situation and decided the best option was to install a Waterguard drainage system, a UltraSump sump pump, and a TripleSafe sump pump. Foreman Mason S. then traveled to the home to get the job started.

The Waterguard drainage system was installed above the footing of the basement. It collects and drains any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the basement surface. Both the UltraSump and the TripleSafe remove water from the home through a discharge line. The UltraSump is equipped with a primary and battery powered pump. The TripleSafe sump pump is equipped with a primary and battery powered pump as well, but also has a secondary pump.

Rich H. no longer has to worry about his home's basement flooding. He now has a waterproof and dry basement.

SmartJack Installed in Jacksonville, IL

Greg and Elisa H were concerned when they noticed that their floors were beginning to sink. So, they decided to call Woods Basement Systems. System Design Specialist Kevin E was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

Foreman Joshua B installed a SmartJack under Greg and Elisa’s home. The SmartJack will rest on a stable level of soil and support the portion of the house that is sinking, it will also attempt to raise the home's level over time.

Leaky Basement Waterproofed in Jacksonville, Illinois

Martha H. of Jacksonville, IL had water leaking into and pooling on the floor in her basement. She contacted Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate.

Design specialist Brandon B. evaulated the basement leak and determined the best solution for Martha would be a full perimeter waterproofing system as well as a sump pump with freezing and clogging protection. 

Foreman Jose L. and his crew then installed the WaterGuard drainage system around the perimeter of the basement where the floor meets the wall. They also installed the TripleSafe sump pump, equipped with a primary and secondary pump as well as a battery back up pump. On the exterior of the home, Jose's crew installed the exterior discharge line with the IceGuard system to allow water to escape the basement in the event of clogging or freezing. 

Martha and her family can now rest assured their basement and treasured belongings are protected from future water leaks.

SaniDry and CleanSpace in Jacksonville, Illinois

Jacksonville, Illinois homeowner Audra W. was troubled by her wet crawl space. Water leaked into the crawl space through her block foundation and caused mold. System design specialist Brandon B. designed a solution to keep the crawl space dry and mold-free.

Greg J., foreman, installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier, so it does not support mold growth. CleanSpace encapsulates the crawl space to keep water out. To further prevent mold growth, SaniDry was installed. SaniDry is an energy efficient dehumidifier. It keeps the relative humidity low without hiking the energy bill.

Audra can breathe easily knowing her crawl space is dry and will stay dry.

University of Illinois Extension Basement Waterproofed in Jacksonville, IL

The finished basement of the building that housed Morgan County Extension of the University of Illinois in Jacksonville, IL flooded several inches. The flooding had left a massive mess in the meeting rooms that required hours of clean up and threatened the many items stored in the basement.  The director of the extension, Aaron D., was worried about more damage so he called Woods Basement Systems. After thoroughly inspecting the basement, Design Specialist Chris T. determined that the best solution would be a waterproofing system.

Woods installed the WaterGuard drainage system under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. Unlike other exterior systems that become clogged by silt and plant roots, WaterGuard is an interior system that sits on top of the concrete footing to keep it clog-free as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it to the sump pump.

Woods installed two TripleSafe sump systems to accept the water from the WaterGuard and eject it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. Each TripleSafe contains three pumps, including battery back up pumps, to ensure the basement stays dry, even in heavy downpours or power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the building. The perforations on the IceGuards were designed to allow trapped water escape to the yard if the lines become frozen to prevent it from getting back into the basement.

Director Aaron D. has peace of mind that the building’s basement will stay dry and they can continue to use it for a meeting space and storage.

WaterGuard Installed in Jacksonville, Illinois

Brian S., small business owner in Jacksonville, Illinois, discovered mold and rot in his wet, musty crawlspace. The mold risked the integrity of the foundation as it at through the wet wood. System design specialist, Tim W. design a solution to support the building and keep the crawlspace dry. 

Foreman James L. and his crew installed SmartJack to support the failing foundation. SmartJack lifts sagging floors to their original position and provides support over time. To keep the crawlspace dry, James installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a crawlspace encapsulation system. It is inorganic, so it does not support mold growth. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier, so it keeps water and moisture from entering the crawlspace.

In addition to CleanSpace, SaniDry was installed. SaniDry is an energy efficient dehumidifier. By keeping the humidity low, mold growth will stay low. Brian is pleased to know his foundation is supported and the crawlspace will stay dry.
