Melanie R. of Monticello, IL had foundation walls that had become severely damaged over the years. There were large cracks on the foundation walls and ledge walls along them which made Melanie worried about the safety of her home so she called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Geo-Lock Wall Anchors.

Woods drove galvanized steel anchor rods through the cracked ledge walls and connected them to steel earth anchors that were embedded in stable soil conditions in the yard. They attached the anchor rods to steel anchor plates on the inside of the wall to hold the walls firmly in place. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors permanently stabilize walls in place, preventing future damage.

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!

Job Stories From Monticello, IL
Leaking Monticello, IL Basement Waterproofed With TwinPack and WaterGuard

Andrew G. of Monticello, Illinois noticed that water was coming into his basement whenever it rained. Because he couldn't figure out where it was coming from, he called the experts at Woods Basement Systems for help.

Brenton, system design specialist, visited the home and determined that the water was coming out of the seam where the floor meets the wall. In order to remedy this issue. a Woods team installed WaterGuard drains and a TwinPack sump pump. WaterGuard is put in place underneath the floor at the base of the walls to catch any and all leaks before they're able to make it into the space, and the TwinPack sump pump uses its two independently operating pumps to send all of that water out of the home. Andrew's basement is now totally dry!

Push Piers, Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and SmartJacks Installed in Monticello, IL

Melanie R. of Monticello, IL had a basement that had multiple issues with its foundation. The foundation walls were cracked and tilting. There were cracks along the foundation floors, a sign that the foundation was settling. The floors above had become uneven and sagged because the cement columns below that supported them were settling and pulling away with the foundation. Melanie R. was worried about the safety of her home so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the basement and recommended installing a foundation and floor support system.

Woods installed Push Piers along the concrete footing of the home. Push piers are high-strength steel pier sections that are hydraulically driven into the earth under the home into stable soil conditions or bedrock and then attached to the footing of the home using heavy-duty steel brackets. They transfer the homes weight to the more stable, load bearing earth below to halt further settling and lift the home back to level in most cases.

Along the cracked foundation walls, Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. Earth anchors embedded in more stable soil condition in the yard are connected to steel wall plates in the inside of the walls with anchor rods. They counteract external soil pressure on the walls, permanently stabilizing them and preventing future damage.

Supplemental steel beams were installed along the sagging floor beam for additional support. SmartJacks were installed along the floor beam. SmartJacks are adjustable steel columns held firmly in place in a concrete footing. They lift and stabilize floors and because they’re adjustable, they offer the best opportunity to returns floors to their original, level position.

Melanie R. is relieved that she no longer has to worry about the safety of her home because her foundation is secure and her floors are supported and stable.

Work Requests From Monticello, IL
Vicinity of S. Charter St. in Monticello
We live in an old Victorian house and our basement has flooded numerous times (anywhere from 2 to 8 inches of water at a time) since we moved in. The problem is (we believe) seepage and not from backed-up storm sewers. It's past time for us to just get it fixed and I would really appreciate an estimate on how much that will cost. Thanks.
