Before finishing a basement, it's important to make sure it is properly waterproofed and equipped with a battery backup sump pump that is strong enough to last when needed.  Why finish a basement, and invest hundreds or even thousands of dollars to have a basement that maybe looks better, but still smells moldy and has water seeping in? Our TripleSafe® sump pump has a 1500-gallon-an-hour battery backup pump with a battery that lasts for days!

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

Job Stories From Litchfield, IL
Old, Loud Sump Pump In Litchfield, IL Replaced With TripleSafe

Wyn N. of Litchfield, Illinois was sick and tired of dealing with her his basement sump pump. It was dirty, loud, and it simply did not do its job correctly. Because it didn't work, rainwater would constantly pool on the basement floor, requiring constant cleanup. Wyn was finally ready to have the problem taken care of, so he gave Woods Basement Systems a call.

In order to effectively waterproof the space, foreman Malik and his team first had to remove the old sump pit. After this, they installed a brand new TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe comes equipped with three separate pumps, including a battery backup, and is capable of removing well over 10,000 gallons of water per hour. Wyn is thrilled with the upgrade!

Upon inspection, Chris recommended installing a drainage system called WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump.

Team Woods installed the new WaterGuard drainage system throughout the entire basement. These drains are installed in the footing of the basement to collect and direct water leaks towards the sump pump. The new TripleSafe sump pump will take the collected water and pump it back outside.

The WaterGuard installed around the perimeter of the basement floor and it is used to collect water that seeps through the basement walls and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.

Waterproofing in Litchfield, IL Basement

Cracked Foundation Stabilized in Litchfield, IL

Linda S. of Litchfield, IL had a stone block foundation that was covered in cracks. There were long horizontal cracks that spanned the foundation walls along where they were bowing their worst. There were vertical cracks in certain parts of the foundation floors, walls and stair step cracks near the corners of the basement. Linda was worried about the structural safety of her home so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing foundation underpinning and foundation wall support systems.

Along two of the bowing, cracked walls, Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors permanently stabilize walls in place and prevent future damage by counteracting external soil pressure. To do this, Woods connected steel wall plates on the inside of the walls to earth anchors embedded in the yard using galvanized steel anchor rods. The wall can also be straightened over time by tightening the anchor rods when soil conditions are dry.

On one wall, where landscaping on the outside of the home prevented excavation, Woods installed PowerBraces. PowerBraces are adjustable steel beams held firmly against the wall using heavy duty steel brackets attached to the floor joists and cement floors of the basement. It halts further progression of the wall and stabilizes it in place while also offering the opportunity to improve the wall’s condition by tightening it during dry periods.

Woods installed Push Piers on the inside of the home to address the underlying issue of foundation settlement that caused the vertical cracks. High-strength steel pier segments are hydraulically driven through the earth to load-bearing soil conditions or bedrock. They are attached to steel brackets on the concrete footing of the home so that the weight of the structure is transferred through the piers to the stable soil or bedrock. They can also lift and left the home to a more structurally sound position in most cases.

Linda has peace of mind that her foundation and home are safe and secure and her walls are permanently stabilized.

Now, this homeowner can rest easy knowing his basement walls are supported and more stable.

Smart Jack Assembly in Litchfield, IL

A Litchfield, IL resident had been living in his home for 27 years and had noticed some small cracks in his drywall for a long time.  He finally called Woods Basement Systems when the cracks became larger and the floors were no longer level.  

The foundation of his home had settled and caused cracking in the drywall, specifically in the hallway and kitchen.  Woods installed a SmartJack System in the crawl space in order to stabilize the sagging floor joists.  The high-strength steel components lifted the home back toward its original position and leveled the floors throughout the home.

The resident was very happy with the quick installation and effectiveness of the product.  He said he highly recommends Woods due to their excellent quality and customer service.
