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

Job Stories From Marion, IL
Walls Stabilized in Marion, IL

Rex and Angela M were concerned when they noticed that their basement walls were bowing. So, they decided to call Woods Basement Systems. System Design Specialist Paul B was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

Foreman Todd W installed a PowerBrace Assembly, and a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor. The PowerBrace will attach to the walls and keep them from bending any further, and straighten them overtime. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchor has one end that attaches to a stable level of soil away from the house and the other end will attach to the basement walls, the device can be tightened which will straighten the walls overtime.

Basement Waterproofed in Marion, IL

Corey K. of Marion, IL had a partially finished basement that had water leaking in each time it rained. His painted foundation floors had become stained from water seeping in and he was worried that his finished walls would become even more damaged if he left the problem unchecked so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Chris A. inspected the basement and recommended a basement waterproofing system.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that collects water seeping in through foundation walls and wall joints and drains it away to the sump pump.

The Twin Pack sump system was installed to collect water from the WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the basement through the discharge lines. The Twin Pack contains two powerful, cast-iron pumps to keep the basement dry even in heavy downpours. On the exterior of the homes, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. IceGuards prevent water from backing up into the basement if the lines become frozen by allowing it to escape through its slotted openings into the yard.

Corey K. has peace of mind that even when the forecast called for severe weather, his basement will remain dry.

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Marion, IL

Arlene J. of Marion, Il. had a leaky crawlspace that was growing mold and leaving her house musty. She also had sagging floors over the area of her crawlspace. She'd had enough and called Woods Basements Systems. Design Specialist Jeremy K. did assessed Arlene's situation and came up with the perfect solution.

The crawlspace was sealed off from the environment with CleanSpace, creating a vapor barrier to prevent moisture and future mold growth. Drainage matting was installed to drain off any standing water that may have entered the crawlspace. 

SmartJacks were installed to lift and straighten the floors above the crawlspace. A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to further prevent moisture in the air as well as mold growth.

Arlene J. is happy to know that she won't have to worry about her floors sagging or musty smells coming from her crawlspace anymore.

MY crawl space is lower than ground level and aproximatly 2 ft high. There is a small trench running to a sump pit and a sump pump to keep it dry. Additionall there is no public drainage for me to pump to so I saturate my yard and sometimes the neighbors yard. I have exhausted several sump pumps over the years and would like a more permanent solution. I wonder if pouring concrete vs a vapor barrier would help? I am on a budget of course or I would have already had this fixed. Helitech has given me quotes and they are way out of my range. I need a permanet affordable solution.

Sunset Terrace in Marion
A couple of spots in the girder supporting the floor joist in the crawl space are showing compression. The girder is of solid wood and rests on concrete blocks and wood which are placed on concrete foundation. I need to correct this issue and prevent it from progressing more. The access to crawl space is small and will need a tiny guy (max 200 pounds) to access it. This is causing an inclination in the floor in one limited area of the house. Thanks, Kunwar
