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

IceGuard Installed Outside Madison, IL Home

Homeowner Annette P. of Madison, IL was having problems in her basement. With a working sump pump and drainage system in her basement she was still having water back up into the space. She finally decided to call Woods Basement Systems to see if they had a solution to her problem. Our foreman Michael Davies and his team discovered that the problem was actually outside of the home. They installed our IceGuard system and extended the drainage line away from the foundation. This system keeps the water flowing out of the home and prevents it from pooling up near the foundation.

Keeping the Basement Dry

In Madison, Illinois homeowner Richard B. was having a hard time keeping up with the water problems he has been having in his basement. He has always stored a lot of items and keepsakes in his basement, and never thought that any of it would become damaged by water. After a heavy rain a few weeks ago, he noticed water entering his basement where the floor meets the wall. Upset and frustrated, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to waterproof his basement.

We sent our foreman Juan Hernandez and his team out to the Madison, IL home to install our premiere waterproofing system, WaterGuard. WaterGuard is a drainage system that sits on-top of the footing, to collect water from walls or pooling on-top of the flooring. The difference with WaterGuard is that it does not become clogged by dirt or debris without using a filter. This creates the best way to keep the basement completely dry for his items and keepsakes as well. Now, Richard has peace of mind knowing his home is dry and safe.
