Cracked Concrete-Block Basement Walls Supported With GeoLock In Hecker, IL

Cracked Concrete-Block Basement Walls Supported With GeoLock In Hecker, IL

Before After
Cracked Concrete-Block Basement Walls Supported With GeoLock In Hecker, IL Cracked Concrete-Block Basement Walls Supported With GeoLock In Hecker, IL

This Hecker, Illinois basement's concrete-block walls were cracking quite badly and beginning to slightly bow inward. The homeowner was very concerned that the damage would get worse if allowed to continue unaddressed, and she was worried about a total wall collapse. She wanted the problem taken care of, and she gave Woods Basement Systems.

In order to stabilize and support the walls, foreman Jeremy and his team installed several GeoLock wall supports. These work by attaching a heavy anchor buried deep in the firm soil far away from the foundation to a steel plate affixed to the interior surface of the basement wall, effectively pulling the wall outward and preventing further cracking. The homeowner can rest easy now that her walls are totally supported!

Basement Waterproofed in Waterloo, IL

Timothy H. of Waterloo, IL had a leaky basement. So much water was seeping into his basement that he had to wetvac it up every time it rained. He was tired of cleaning up the mess and worrying about rain in the forecast so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free inspection. Design Specialist Chad B. assessed the inside and outside of the basement and found the perfect solution to Timothy’s water problem.

Foreman Greg H. installed WaterGuard along the walls, under the concrete floors of the basement.

The TripleSafe contains three pumps: a primary pump, a more powerful secondary pump and a battery back up pump. If the primary pump fails or isn’t keeping up with the rising water, the secondary pump will kick in to ensure the basement remains dry. If there’s a power outage, the battery back up pump will keep pumping water pumping out of the basement.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and Polylevel Installed in Waterloo, IL

Amy H. of Waterloo, IL had found the cracks on the outside of her foundation and noticed that there was a crack along the top of her finished walls on the inside of her basement.

Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the cracked foundation walls. Earth anchors are embedded in more stable soil conditions in the yard and connected to galvanized steel anchor rods that have been driven through the foundation walls. The anchor rods are attached to wall anchor plates on the inside of the walls and permanently stabilize the foundation walls in place.

Woods injected Polylevel through the cement slabs of the walk and driveway that had sunk which caused the unevenness. PolyLevel is an expanding polymer foam that lifts and lefts the slabs. It cures in about 15 minutes so the walk and driveway can be used in much less time than traditional mudjacking, which can take an hour.

Amy H. is relieved that she no longer has to worry about tripping hazards and that her foundation walls are safe and secure.

Basement and Crawlspace Waterproofed in Columbia, IL

Their stone foundation had numerous cracks and gaps that allowed an alarming amount of water to leak into both their basement and crawlspace. Neither could be used for storage without their belongings becoming water damaged so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Mike T. inspected the basement and found that the best solution would be a basement and crawlspace waterproofing system.

Along the foundation walls in the basement and crawlspace, Woods installed CleanSpace. CleanSpace is a thick durable moisture barrier that can be installed on uneven surfaces like the stone foundation in this home. It prevents moisture from entering into the basement through the walls and instead directs it to the drainage system below.

Woods installed the Twin Pack to take the water from the drainage system and pump it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The Twin Pack contains two powerful cast-iron pumps that sit within different levels within the sump liner. This allows the Twin Pack to be effective against small leaks and heavy downpours.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the basement if the lines become frozen during cold winter months. They feature slotted openings that give water an alternative escape route into the yard.
