A Carmi, IL resident was tired of dealing with a wet basement every time it rained for the past 22 years. The water would come in through cracks in the walls and at the floor joints during heavy rains. She was concerned about the possibility of mold and wanted a dry basement that she could use for storage.
Woods Basement Systems installed WaterGuard, IceGuard, and TrenchDrain in order to collect all of the water and lead it out and away from the house. The resident was very pleased with the work that was done by Woods and said they were the most professional crew she has ever worked with.
A resident of Mount Vernon, IL called Woods Basement Systems to clean up his crawl space and eliminate humidity, odors, and mold. He had been living in his house for 6 years and was aware of the problem since he first moved in. He finally decided to do something about it when 4 inches of standing water accumulated in his crawl space. Some of the wood had begun to rot, and this was a big concern of the resident.
Woods installed a CleanSpace Encapsulation System, including CleanSpace liner and a SaniDry CX. The clean white material covered the floor and walls of the crawl space, making it a nice dry storage space for the resident. The SaniDry CX acted as an air filter and dehumidifier, resulting in dry clean air in the crawl space.
The resident was extremely pleased with the installation and how much of a difference it made in his crawl space. Now he no longer had to worry about rotting wood and other issues that could lead to major problems in his crawl space.
Mike was having issues with his crawl space. He noticed that it was extra humid and wanted this problem to be corrected immediately before it did any further damage to his home. He called Woods Basement Systems and had a Systems Design Specialist tell him what the issue was and how to properly correct it. Mike found that CleanSpace, SaniDry, LawnScape, IceGuard, Smart Sump, Smart Pipe, Vent Covers, and an EverLast door would be the best options to make sure his crawlspace stays dry all year around. So he got all of them and now his house is much healthier.
Todd H. of Ladue, MO, had a completely finished basement including a family/TV room and a home gym. Recently after heavy rains, water leaked into the basement and caused significant damage to the drywall as well as some water damage to the flooring. Todd's finished basement is no longer a sight to see.
Todd reached out to Woods Basement Systems for assistance. The system design specialist from Woods recommended several options for improvment. After careful consideration, Todd decided to go forward with the Waterguard and trench drain installation.
The WaterGuard system helps to control the direction of water leaking from basement walls as well as water that seeps in where the wall meets the floor. The trench drain will prevent water from flooding in from an outer entry way. After these improvements to Todd's basement, it is safe to say that Todd will be able to restore his basement back to its original character without any concerns of water damage in the future.

They were worried the walls might fail so they called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the inside and outside of the foundation walls and recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.
The Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed along the bowing, cracking walls. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors counteract unstable soil pressure on the outside of the walls that causes damage. Wall plates on the inside of the walls are connected to earth anchors embedded in more stable soil in the yard using steel anchor rods.

Drafts and musty smells came into their home from their crawlspace, as well, so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Greg B. inspected the crawlspaces and recommended installing a crawlspace encapsulation system as well as SmartJacks.
SmartJacks were installed along the beams of the larger crawlspace. SmartJacks are adjustable steel columns that are held in place by concrete footings that will support and stabilize floors in place and can also lift floors back to their original position.
SilverGlo Insulation Panels were installed along the walls of the crawlspaces. SilverGlo is made of rigid polystyrene foam insulate the crawlspace and prevents air infiltration. It’s waterproof so it forms a moisture barrier over the walls and directs water to the perimeter drainage system.
CleanSpace was installed along the walls and floors of the crawlspaces. CleanSpace is a durable, thick plastic liner that forms a vapor barrier between the foundation walls and dirt floors which will reduce humidity in the crawlspace and prevent any moisture from getting in.
Along the floors of the crawlspaces, drainage matting was installed. It’s dimpled design provides channels for standing water to disperse to the perimeter drainage system.
SmartPipe was installed along the foundation walls of the basement. It’s a drainage system that has rows of holes covered in filter fabric so it won’t become clogged by mud or debris as it collects water from the walls and floors of the crawlspace and takes it to the sump pumps for removal.
In the larger crawlspace, the TripleSafe was installed to take the water from WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the crawlspace through its discharge lines. It contains three powerful pumps, including a battery back up pump, to ensure that in all weather conditions or power outages, the crawlspace will remain dry.
In the smaller crawlspace, the SmartSump was installed. The SmartSump is designed to fit seamlessly with the CleanSpace barrier and is equipped with a powerful, cast iron pump.
IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the crawlspaces. IceGuards were designed to prevent water from re-entering the crawlspace if the lines become frozen or clogged by allowing it to escape through slotted openings.
The SaniDry Dehumidifier was installed in the larger crawlspace. It keeps the relative humidity low in the crawlspaces to prevent musty smells and rot.
Randy and Jennifer are glad they can finally use their crawlspace for storage without worries of water damage and that they’ll no longer have drafts or musty smells coming from their crawlspaces.

If the discharge lines become frozen, the IceGuard has slotted opening for water to escape so it doesn’t come back into the basement.
Rachel and Tim W. are relieved that they had a waterproofing system that works and they no longer have to worry about their basement during bad weather.

He was then connected with system design specialist, Tim W., who worked with Sean to design a plan for his basement.
Upon recommendation, foreman, Melvin F., installed WaterGuard drains and CleanSpace on the walls. The WaterGuard drains are installed in the footing of the basement walls to collect water leaks and send them to the sump pump. The CleanSpace encapsulation system works with the drains by directing wall water leaks to the WaterGuard drains. A CleanSpace system works to protect the walls from damage and serves as a water-resistant barrier. With the help of WaterGuard drains and a CleanSpace encapsulation barrier, Sean now has a protected basement that he can enjoy for many more years to come.
Dix, Illinois homeowner Jaime S. was very concerned with the state of his basement walls. Aside from large horizontal cracks running the length of the walls, several of them were also bowing in very notiecably. Worried about a potential wall collapse, he called the experts at Woods Basement Systems.
To support the walls and prevent any further bowing, foreman Jeremy and his team installed several GeoLock wall anchors. These work by connecting steel plates on the interior surface of the walls to large anchors buried nearly 10 feet away from the home in firm soil, effectively pulling the walls outward over time. Thanks to Woods Basement Systems, Jaime no longer needs to stress about his basement walls!
Doug, manager of a veteran's loan center on Scott Air Base, called Woods Basement Systems because he was concerned with the sagging floors and cracking drywall on the inside of the building. He worried that the foundation might be settling, but he wasn't sure; so he called in some expert help.
Woods system design specialist Daniel visited the building and determined that while the foundation was not sinking, the floors joists in the crawl space were. Over time, moisture damaged the joists, causing the floors above to sag and sink. In order to fix this problem, several Smart Jacks were installed in the crawl space underneath the joists to level and support them. These jacks can support 60,000 pounds each, more than enough for a small business.
Jimmy F. of Portageville, Missouri was concerned with the sagging floors in his home. His house was built on top of a crawl space, and Jimmy suspected that rain water had washed away much of the dirt in the space, causing the floors to sink. He wanted an expert opinion, so he called Woods Basement Systems.
System design specialist Sam visited Jimmy's home and determined that, over time, moisture in the crawl space had badly damaged and rotted many of the floor joists. These joists were no longer equipped to support the weight of the home, and they needed to addressed. In order to support the floors, a Woods team began by installing several steel PowerBrace beams underneath the joists and parallel to the floor to provide a solid foundation for the final product, Smart Jacks. Several Smart Jacks, capable of supporting well over 60,000 pounds each, were affixed to the beams to keep the joists level. Jimmy couldn't be happier!
Homeowners Tony and Michelle from West Alton, Missouri had Team Woods look over their previous fiberglass insulation. The team noticed that this insulation was falling and was no longer serving its purpose. The team recommended switching from fiberglass to spray insulation to keep mold and mildew out and to insulate the home adequately.
Team Woods installed the new spray foam insulation where the fiberglass insulation had been. The spray foam insulation sealed both the crawl space and the attic. This new insulation will also help save you money and create cleaner air! Thanks to the spray foam insulation, Tony and Michelle will have a nicely insulated home.
Steve from Waltonville, Illinois wanted to clean up his crawl space and protect it from possible harm. Team Woods went out to the house and designed a personalized plan that would meet all of Steve's needs. The specialist recommended installing a CleanSpace vapor barrier system along with a TripleSafe sump pump. This way the sump pump would pump out all water leaks the CleanSpace would protect the crawl space from developing water damage.
Team Woods installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier with the TripleSafe sump pump. Along with these two products the team also installed exterior waterproofing elements to keep water from leaking inside. These products were IceGuards, vent covers, and an Egress window cover. Thanks to the help of Team Woods and the high-quality waterproofing products, Steve is stress-free with this protected crawl space.
Mount Vernon, Illinois homeowner Brittni had only recently finished her basement when she began to notice moisture issues. During heavy periods of rain, water would come out from behind the drywall and pool on the wood floor. This water had already badly damaged furniture and parts of the drywall, and Brittni was eager to have the problem taken care of.
Because Brittni neglected to waterproof BEFORE finishing, a Woods Basement Systems team led by foreman Greg first had to cut away sections of the drywall and rip up some of the wood flooring to gain access to the foundation before any work could be started. Once this was done, the waterproofing work was started by installing an under-floor WaterGuard drainage system at the base of the leaking walls to catch any and all water. After this, a CleanSpace vapor barrier was put in place to cover the foundation walls and trap moisture. Finally, a TripleSafe sump pump was installed to remove any water from the home. Brittni's basement is now totally dry.
Homeowner, Glen, from Mount Vernon, Illinois wanted to protect the investment that he made on his basement, so he reached out to Woods Basement Systems for a solution. System design specialist, Luke K., met with Glen to discuss possible ways to protect his basement. Luke gave the recommendation of installing a drainage system along with a sump pump.
To keep a basement safe and dry, a drainage system is needed to collect water leaks while the sump pump will pump these leaks back outside. By installing these two products, the basement will be able to protect itself against harm water damage. WaterGuard drains are the top of the line waterproofing drains that are installed in the footing of the basement, this way they won't clog. The TripleSafe sump pump is a dependable sump pump system that will pump out water leaks year around. Thanks to head foreman Brett J. and his crew, these two waterproofing products were installed quickly and efficiently.
Judy from Mount Vernon, Illinois, noticed that the main floor in her room was sinking. She quickly called Woods Basement Systems to schedule an appointment to see what could be done to restore her troubled foundation.

Head foreman, Chris S., worked with his team to install several SmartJacks around the crawl space. SmartJacks are a permanent stabilizer that supports and levels the foundation. These stabilizers are made out of galvanized steel and are installed in the ceiling and flooring of the crawl space. Thanks to Team Woods, Judy now has a stable and level foundation!
Windows are a vulnerable place in a basement where water can leak through. Just look at this window in Belle Rive, IL.
There are several ways to fix this problem, like installing a more water-proof window well or adding a WellDuct™, which is a vertical drainage system inside the house that drains the water from the window well and into the sump pump system.
Richard H. of Belle Rive, IL decided on better window wells with a domed cover to prevent rainwater from pouring in and Wood's Basement Systems was able to help him with that.
Katie W. of Belle Rive, IL. had a dehumidifier running in her basement, but that dehumidifier wasn't giving the results she needed.
That's because dehumidifiers like this one are inefficient at removing moisture from the air and often rely on buckets to catch the water they collect. Once those buckets are filled, the dehumidifier shuts off until the buckets are emptied.
While Katie's dehumidifier did empty automatically into her drainage system, it wasn't able to keep up with the moisture in the air, making her home feel dank and cave-like. The best solution was to switch her old dehumidifier out with a Sedona dehumidifier.
The Sedona not only drains automatically, but it can remove up to 100 pints of water from the air every day. That's nearly 12 and a half gallons! This system will keep her home at exactly the right amount of moisture in the air and it can do it with the same amount of power use as much smaller dehumidifiers.
As if that wasn't enough, it can also filter the air, removing particles like dust mites or mold spores. Not only will this give the air a clean, comfortable feel and smell, but it will also protect the home against mold and reduce exposure to allergens like dust mite droppings.
Katie W. can breathe a sigh of dry, comfortable relief with the Sedona dehumidifier removing moisture and nasty particles from her air.
Homeowner Margaret C. of Decatur, Illinois had a crawlspace had a dirty, dark crawlspace.

She told us here at Woods that she wanted to be able to use her crawlspace for storage but didn’t water her items sitting in dirt or getting damaged and wet during the wet seasons.
Our foreman Michael Rebenstorff and his team came out to her home to install our patented CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace is a thick, durable, plastic liner (similar to a pool liner) lined with UltraFresh an antimicrobial agent to stop the growing of mold or bacteria growth.

Our WaterGuard system is different than most waterproofing drainage systems because it is installed on-top of the footing, therefore making it harder for dirt and debris to clog the flow of water. Now, any water on top of the floor will be drained up and out of the home. Kurt and Stephanie are excited that their basement is now dry and waterproofed.
