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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

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

Foundation Repair

A home in Mattoon, Illinois owned by Tyler B. was having problems with foundation settlement. In the crawlspace, the support beams were concrete blocks stacked on top of eachother and the floor above was beginning to sink. The home was also covered in small and large cracks around weak points in the home, indicating an unstable support system. The homeowner noticed that his doors and windows were becoming harder to open and close as the years have gone on. More recently Tyler was thinking about putting his home on the market, and knew this was an issue that he would have to address before he could pass any inspections. 

Tyler decided to call Woods Basement Systems because he had heard from a friend that they could fix the foundation of his home. 

Our foreman Jose Lorenzana and his team made it out to the home to install our patented PushPier system. PushPiers are made of steel to permanently stabilize your home’s foundation.

Wet Mattoon, IL Basement Made Dry With WaterGuard

Donna V. of Mattoon, Illinois had been having issues with water in her basement for several years. Whenever there was a heavy period rain, it would leak through cracks in the walls and pool on the floor. This constant moisture required constant cleanup, and Donna was eager to have the problem taken care of. 

In order to waterproof the space, a Woods Basement Systems team installed a WaterGuard drainage system. These gutter-like drains are placed underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch any water and prevent it from reaching the space. Donna's basement is now totally dry and she couldn't be happier!

Beautifully Sealed Crawl Space in Mattoon, IL

Tyler from Mattoon, Illinois never used his crawl space, let alone entered the room. He wanted to utilize his space as an extra storage area, so he reached out to Woods Basement Systems. From there a system design specialist worked with Tyler to design a plan that would match his crawl space needs. The specialist recommended installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system for the ultimate repair. 

Before this crawl space wasn't an asset to the home, but with the help of CleanSpace that completely changed, now the crawl space is sealed, cleaned, and protected. Team Woods installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier system to seal the home from the outer elements that can create harm like water, debris, and critters. After the installation was complete, Tyler was very pleased with the project and is excited to use this area for storage. 

Radon Mitigation Completed With Active Soil Depressurization in Mattoon, IL

Radon, while not a fast killer like carbon monoxide, is still an incredibly dangerous gas. It is the world's number one cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, and an American is killed by radon-induced lung cancer every 25 minutes. Living in a home with dangerously heightened radon levels is like smoking several packs of cigarettes a day. Considering all of this, homeowner Tyler B. contacted Woods Basement Systems to have his home protected against radon.

Foreman Brett J. and his team installed several mitigating measures to totally secure Tyler's home. Because radon comes into the home from the ground, most of the work had to be done in the crawl space, and the first step was to put in a CleanSpace encapsulation system to seal the dirt and elements out of the space and make it easier for the additional measures to be installed.

This is where the radon mitigation work really began. For this particular case, Brett and the team used a method called active soil depressurization, wherein a radon fan and PVC piping are used to draw away air from underneath the CleanSpace lining and create a low-pressure system that completely prevents radon from entering the home. Now Tyler can sleep peacefully knowing he and his family are safe from radon!

TripleSafe Pump Installed in Mattoon, Illinois

Meri S. of Mattoon, Illinois, had water leaking in her basement near her staircase, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Luke B. recommended installing a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard, and IceGuard. 

Foreman, Tyler S. installed the products. The TripleSafe sump pump is guaranteed to to keep your home dry with its three-in-one design that includes a primary pump, a secondary pump, and a battery-powered backup pump. WaterGuard is installed in the perimeter of the basement floor and it works to collect water that seeps through the walls. It then guides that water to the sump pump where it can be fully removed from the house. IceGuard is placed on the outside of the home and it lets water expel from the guards in the event that the pipes should clog or freeze. This prevents water from backing up into the basement. 

Now Meri S. has a watertight basement. 

Egress Window Installed in Mattoon, Illinois

William and Deb H. had a leaky eyesore for an egress window and needed a new one, so they decided to call Woods Basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Aaron M. recommended installing a RockWell egress window with a SunHouse cover.

Foreman, Miguel O. installed the products. Egress windows can create great lighting for your basement. Additionally, according to building code, a basement requires a window that can be used as an escape in the event of an emergency if the space is used as a bedroom. The RockWell makes for a great view from the inside and gives off light that fills the room. The SunHouse cover allows for the well be covered and sealed off from dirt, moisture, and critters while still letting in as much light as possible.

Now William and Deb H. have a great window in their basement.

Waterguard collects water that seeps through cracks and guides it to the sump pump where it can be removed from the home.

Waterproofing System Keeps Mattoon, IL Basement Dry

Every time it rained, water seeped into the basement of Bradford R.’s Mattoon, IL home. Over the years, it made his basement walls and floor an eyesore by leaving them stained and water damaged. He’d tried just dealing with the mess and fan drying his basement but he worried about his belongings stored in the basement so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Nolan M. assessed Bradford’s basement and recommended a waterproofing system.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that sits on top of the concrete footing of the home, away from mud that might clog it as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it to the sump pump.

Woods installed the Twin Pack to remove the unwanted water through its discharge lines and away from the basement. The Twin Pack contains two powerful cast-iron pumps so the basement stays dry even in severe weather.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards have slotted openings designed to let water to escape if the discharge line become frozen or clogged so it won’t get back into the basement.

Bradford R. has peace of mind that his basement will remain dry and he won’t have to clean up any more messes after bad weather.

Waterproofing System Keeps Finished Basement Dry in Mattoon, IL

She was tired of the clean up so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Greg B. inspected the basement and found the best solution would be a waterproofing system.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that sits away from any mud that might clog it as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it away to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe was installed to receive the water from the WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains two powerful, cast-iron pumps and a battery back up pump to protect the basement from severe weather conditions and power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. The slotted openings of the IceGuards prevent water from getting back into the basement if the discharge lines become frozen and allow the trapped water to escape into the yard.

Lucille W. is relieved that her basement will stay dry during rainy weather and she won’t have to clean up any more messes.

SmartJacks installed in Mattoon, IL

Ed L. of Mattoon, IL had a major problem. The floors above his crawlspace were sagging and sinking and the support beams in his crawlspace appeared to be failing. Ed knew he had to act fast before the problem got even worse so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Greg B. did a thorough inspection of the inside of Ed’s crawlspace as well as the floors above and gave him the perfect solution.

Supplemental beams were installed throughout the crawlspace structure to provide additional support where older beams were failing. Woods Basement Systems then installed SmartJacks. SmartJacks are adjustable, galvanized steel columns that are installed into concrete footings that are placed into more stable soil under the crawlspace. The steal columns are tightened into place which stabilizes the support beams and can lift and level floors, restoring them to their original positions.

Ed L. now has the peace of mind knowing his floors are stabilized and back to their original, level position.

Waterproofing in Mattoon, IL

After living in her home for 18 years, a Mattoon, IL resident finally decided to fix her wet basement problem.  Water would come into her basement through the walls and floors every time it rained and cause damage to her furnace and water heater.  After one particular heavy rain, the resident found inches of standing water in her basement and decided to give Woods Basement Systems a call.

Woods installed WaterGuard and BrightWall among other products to prevent water from coming into the basement ever again.  The WaterGuard carried the water out and away from the home while sitting on top of the footing rather than next to it, preventing dirt and sediment from clogging the system.  The BrightWall waterproof panels provided a clean, bright, and dry living area for the resident.

Now the resident no longer has to worry when it rains, and she can happily enjoy her dry basement!

Helical Piers Fix Caved-In Wall

After living in her home for 30 years, a resident of Altamont, IL called Woods Basement Systems to fix the walls that were caving in and cracking in her basement.  The problem had been going on for 10 years, but she finally decided to do something about it once it became worse.  The homeowner planned on living in her home for several years to come, and the structural damages to the basement walls worried her. 

Woods installed Helical Piers in order to stabilize the walls and shift the home back toward its original position.  These piers permanently stabilized the home’s foundation without the expense and disruption of a full foundation replacement.  The resident was very pleased with the work that Woods did and rated them a 10 out of 10.
