Mt. Vernon, Illinois homeowner Michael P. was concerned about the state of his basement walls. Over the years, pressure from the surrounding soil had caused them to be riddled with large cracks and several had even begun to bow inward. Michael worried that, if left unchecked, this damage might eventually lead to a total wall collapse.
In order to reinforce the damaged walls, a Woods Basement Systems team installed several GeoLock wall supports. These work by connecting heavy anchors buried deep in the firm soil far from the home to steel plates affixed to the interior surface of the damaged walls, effectively pulling them outward and straightening them over time.
Struggling to maintain a safe and dry crawl space, Michael from O'Fallon, Illinois reached out to Woods Basement System to find a solution that would protect his troubled crawl space. Woods' system design specialist, Blake R., looked over the area and gave the recommendation of installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system to seal and protect the susceptible crawl space from harm completely.
Head foreman, Jesse C., installed the new CleanSpace vapor barrier system onto the walls and floor of the crawl space. CleanSpace is made out of inorganic materials to prevent mold growth and to block out pesky outer elements like water, critters, and debris. With the help of CleanSpace, this crawl space will be safe, clean, and protected for many more years to come.
Homeowner Claudia of Innsbrook, Missouri was having moisture issues in her finished basement. She noticed that water was coming from behind a section of drywall and pooling on the floor. Because she was worried about the damage that this water might cause, Claudia called Woods Basement Systems.
In order to waterproof the space, foreman Michael and his team had to first cut away the bottom portion of the wet drywall to get to the source of the water. After this, they installed a WaterGuard drainage system under the floor at the base of the leaking foundation wall to catch water and prevent it from making it onto the floor. Claudia could have avoided costly repairs and extra work had she waterproofed BEFORE finishing her basement!
Creve Coeur, Missouri homeowner Michael L. had been having issues with water leaking into his basement through a crack in the wall for several years. Anytime it rained, a stream of water would run onto the floor from the base of the wall. Because he was interested in selling his home, he needed the problem solved, and he called Woods Basement Systems.
Foreman Kevin J. and his team began their work by installing WaterGuard, a drainage system that sits under the floor at the base of the wall and collects any and all water that makes it into the basement. Next, they installed a TripleSafe sump pump. Equipped with three independendently operating pumps, one of which is a battery-operated backup, it can handle over 20,000 gallons of water per hour. The last improvement, IceGuard, was installed outside on the discharge line to prevent any freezing issues. Michael's basement is now as totally dry!
Gene of Wildwood, Missouri had water leaking in to her basement during heavy rains, so she decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a solution. Systems design specialist, Michael H. recommended installing CleanSpace and WaterGuard.
Foreman, Juan H. installed the products. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier that is made of inorganic materials, so it does not support mold growth. It is used to collect water that seeps through basement walls and sends it to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is installed in the basement floor below CleanSpace the catch the water it collects and guides it to the sump pump to be removed from the home.
Now Gene S. has a dry, safe basement.
Swansea, Illinois homeowner Michael had two crawl spaces on his home and both were experiencing moisture problems. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist John S. developed a plan for him.
Foreman James L. and his crew installed a system, including CleanSpace with drainage matting, a SmartPump, Rim Joist spray foam, and Vent Covers, to solve the problem.
CleanSpace is a top product for reducing crawl space moisture. It is an anti-microbial vapor barrier that covers the floor and walls of the crawl space. It stops the water vapor coming through the dirt and porous walls from getting into the crawl space sir. With drainage matting, the vapor collected will be directed to the SmartPump sump pump, instead of pooling under the barrier.
The SmartPump will be sure that any water that gets into the crawl space is redirected a safe distance away from the home to cause no more problems.
The Vent Covers seal off the crawl space from the elements and critters, creating its own environment instead of being in tune with the outdoors.
Michael can now use his crawl spaces for storage, have cleaner air in his home, and not be afraid to get work done in the space.

Foreman Michael P. and his team installed a joint solution using a SmartSump sump pump and a SaniDry air filtration system to keep the crawlspace as dry as possible. SmartSump is engineered specifically for crawlspace and uses a cast-iron Zoeller pump and works well with CleanSpace vapor barriers. SaniDry provides powerful air filtration and dehumidification, removing up to 100 pints of water per day out of the air for maximum dryness. Carol can take pride in knowing her crawlspace will be clean and moisture-free well into the future.

Michael and Mary S. of Ellisville, MO had climate control issues in his crawlspace. The climate is keeping the space damp and threatening the home with mold and rotting wood. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to help Michael and Mary with their problem.
CleanSpace was installed to help seal off the crawlspace. This seal will prevent outside water from seeping into the space and making it damp. If your crawlspace stays dry, there will be a reduced chance of mold and rotting wood.

Susan from Breese woke up one morning to a strange pungent smell in her house. She searched all over her house to try and find the source of the smell.

One Webster Groves home has been through at least three different homeowners, but it was the latest homeowner who inherited and finally decided to resolve his wet basement problem.
When William D. purchased his home, the basement included two existing sump pump systems. Unfortunately, the two sump pumps were not enough to keep his basement dry. Hydrostatic pressure on the exterior caused the basement walls to crack and leak, groundwater would seep in between the walls and floor, and rainwater would run underneath the basement door and across the basement floor. Moisture penetrating the basement walls caused paint to crack and chip. Eventually, his existing sump pumps failed. Standing water jeopardized items stored in the basement and threatened to ruin William's valuables.
William's story changed the moment he called Woods Basement Systems. He met with System Design Specialist Rich Obermeier, who carefully inspected William's basement and thoroughly discussed William's goals. Foreman Michael Jones, Jr. completely removed the failed sump pumps and installed a brand-new TripleSafe sump pump system, including two primary pumps and a third battery backup sump pump to keep William's basement dry all the time. The crew also installed WaterGuard along the basement perimeter to drain groundwater seepage from the wall-floor joint directly to the sump pump.
William's project also included the IceGuard sump pump discharge line system to prevent his sump pump discharge pipes from freezing in the winter. William is very impressed with his system, the crew, and our company. Today, he's free to use his basement for storage and will never have to worry about groundwater leaks again!
