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

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.

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.

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

Lucille W. of Mattoon, IL had water seeping into her finished basement every time it rained. It had destroyed her tile flooring over the years and damaged her walls. 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.

CleanSpace and SaniDry in Mattoon, IL

The crawl space under Martha's home had been troubling her and her son William. Not only was the crawl space musty, damp, and dirty; the dankness was affecting the rest of the house too! 

What to do? Woods Basement Systems knows. Many homeowners aren't aware of existing solutions to crawl space issues, but crawl space work is a specialty of ours. We informed Martha of CleanSpace, the crawl space encapsulation system that completely transforms nasty crawl spaces into a beautiful, spotless storage area. In addition to installing CleanSpace, Martha also bought a SaniDry CX--a powerful crawl space dehumidifier. Stronger and more energy-efficient than a regular dehumidifier, the SaniDry CX is also self-draining, so turn it on and don't give it another thought!

Because of Woods, Martha's home smells fresher and her crawl space is no longer unbearable and perfect for storage. If your crawl space needs attention, please call Woods to set up a free inspection!

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.

Briar Ln in Mattoon
Bedroom/small bath addition was built on a slab foundation by previous owner several years ago. We recently removed the carpet and found that there is a large crack down the center of the room with about 1-1 1/2 inch "step" on one side of the crack. It looks like the exterior edges of the slab have settled/sunken a couple of inches. No major cracks in the walls. I'm hoping the issue can be solved by poly-leveling... We would like to lay some type of solid floor in this room once it has been repaired. Thank you.
