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.

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Job Stories From Kell, IL
Supporting Bowing Foundation Walls

Soil around a home can naturally expand and contract depending on the weather. Though you can't usually see this expansion, it can have a great impact on foundation walls. 


For this home in Kell, IL., expanding soil pressed against the foundation walls enough to cause them to buckle and bow inward. This bowing can not only cause cracks, but if left unfixed, can lead to a collapsed wall. 


Sometimes a contractor recommends a halfwall be built to support the old wall. While this might increase the strength of the wall slightly, the halfwall can be disruptive to the space and might begin to bow inward itself. Instead, Woods Basement Systems uses wall anchors. Wall anchors work by burying an anchor plate out in the undisturbed soil and connecting it to a plate inside with a steel rod. The plates are tightened and pull on each other with the rod. Because the anchor plate is buried in steady soil, it will pull the bowing wall more. This strenghtens the wall and can be used to straighten the wall back out as well. Plus these plates have a low profile, meaning they can be hidden behind finished walls and won't disrupt the space. 


Bowing walls won't threaten the integrity of this home in Kell, IL. now that wall anchors are in place to permanently hold the wall into the proper position.

TripleSafe and FlexiSpan

Kell, IL homeowner Tyson was concerned about water coming in through cracks in his basement walls. He called Woods Basement Systems and met with Design Specialist Daniel M., who assessed the situation and recommended the ideal solution.

Foreman Cody F. and his team installed FlexiSpan sealant along with a TripleSafe sump system to prevent leaks and remove excess water. FlexiSpan seals cracks and provides long lasting protection from water. TripleSafe offers three levels of waterproofing and features the UltraSump battery backup system to protect the basement in all conditions. Tyson can take pride in knowing he made a wise investment in protecting his home from harmful water damage.

TrenchDrain and WaterGuard in Kell, IL Basement

Homeowner Tyson was looking to keep his basement dry and protect his home from water damage, so he called Woods Basement Systems to see what his options were. System Design Specialist Daniel M. met with Tyson and offered him a free estimate on the ideal solution for his waterproofing needs.

Foreman Ronald D. and his team installed both TrenchDrain and WaterGuard drainage systems to remove water from the home and keep the basement dry in all conditions. TrenchDrain is ideal for entryways such as garage doors and similar entry points to redirect water before it comes into the home. It works well with WaterGuard French drain systems, which are installed under the floor slab for effective drainage with a clean, finished appearance. Tyson can rest easy knowing his basement will stay dry well into the future.

Kell, Illinois Foundation Supported with Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

Sherry and Edward F., Kell, Illinois homeowners, were troubled by their bowing foundation walls. As the walls bowed under pressure, they began to crack and compromise the integrity of the home's support. Foreman Todd W. installed a solution to support the home.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are made of galvanized steel and are driven into undisturbed soil. They straighten the walls to their original position. Geo-Lock provides support for the foundation. Sherry and Edward are relieved to know their home is safe.
