Concrete-block foundation walls are particularly vulnerable to cracking and bowing because there are hundreds of seams and weak points throughout. It is important to address any damage as soon as possible, as it can spiral out of control quickly if left alone. Woods Basement Systems installed several PowerBrace supports in this Lincoln, Illinois basement to address the cracking and bowing concrete-block walls. These galvanized steel I-beams are incredibly strong and totally prevent any further movement and cracking.

Keith W is worried about his foundation. The house is settling, separating the concrete blocks on the foundation and causing them to crack in a stairstep pattern. There are also cracks showing on the foundation outside the house.

A Woods Installation Crew installed Push Piers to permanently stabilize the foundation walls in the basement. These will also return the foundation to its original position, fixing the separating blocks. Keith can now relax knowing his foundation is stabilized!

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
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Lincoln, Illinois Crawl Space Waterproofed & Protected with CleanSpace

Stephen from Lincoln, Illinois called Woods Basement Systems to clean up and restore his water-damaged crawl space. System design specialist Jeremy H. was sent to the home to look over the crawl space to see what would protect and maintain the wet crawl space. The optimal solution was to install a CleanSpace vapor barrier system up the walls and over the floor to completely seal the area from harm.  

A CleanSpace encapsulation system serves as a vapor barrier to block out harmful outer elements along with preventing mold growth. Since this system is made out of inorganic materials, this means that unlike organic materials, the system will repeal water, debris, and critters. The new CleanSpace encapsulation system was installed by foreman Christ S. and his crew of professional installers.

She wanted the problem resolved professionally, so she called Woods Basement Systems.

In order to support the walls and prevent further bowing, foreman Jeremy and his team installed several PowerBrace I-beams. These incredibly strong steel supports totally stop movement and cracking. Andrea can rest easy now that her walls are secured!

Waterproofing in Lincoln, IL Basement

Amy D. of Lincoln, Illinois discovered that her home's basement was collecting water. She did not want the water to continue to cause damage, so she called Woods Basement Systems.

Design specialist Brandon B. assessed the situation and decided the best solution would be to install a Twin Pack sump pump, a CleanSpace Wall System, and a Waterguard drainage system. Foreman Joshua B. then headed over to the home to install these waterproofing products.

The Twin Pack sump pump has both a primary and secondary pump that collects and expels water out of the home through an exterior discharge line. The Waterguard drainage system is placed above the footing of the basement and is then covered by concrete. It collects and sends any water coming up from the ground to the sump pump before it reaches the surface of the basement. Finally, the CleanSpace Wall System is a plastic liner that acts as a water vapor barrier and drains any leaks that occur behind it.

Amy D. no longer has to worry about her basement holding water. She now has a dry and waterproof home.

I had my crawl space evaluated on 03/15. I am still waiting for an estimate for the options that I chose.
