Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Murphysboro, IL

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Murphysboro, IL

Before After
Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Murphysboro, IL Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Murphysboro, IL

Plastic crawl space vapor barriers may block a lot of moister vapor from the dirt but it vents most of it at the perimeter where the plastic cover is open nearest the wall.  Over time, this causes the wood floor joist and sill plate at the perimeter to rot, commonly called dry rot.  This is due to the seasonal temperature changes and the abundant moisture released from beneath the plastic cover condensing on the wood, then drying, getting absorbed again, then drying, and getting wet another day, then drying...  Our CleanSpace® encapsulation system, like the one installed in this Murphysboro, Illinois crawl space, STOPS this problem, helps reduce radon levels, control mold and bugs, and lower energy costs.

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!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps

Job Stories From Murphysboro, IL
Waterproofing CrawlSpace

In Murphysboro, Illinois homeowner Tim and Juli C. were worried about their crawlspace. They had a dirt crawlspace that has over the years become dirty and wet from rainwater. They wanted to make it a space where they can store items without them getting wet and damaged. They decided to call Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to their problem.

We sent our foreman Dwayne Morgan and his team out to the home to install the perfect solution for Tim and Juli’s problem. They cleaned out the crawlspace, and installed out patented CleanSpace liner. CleanSpace is a thick, durable liner (similar to a pool liner) that covers the flooring and walls.

Leaky Murphysboro, IL Basement Fitted With WaterGuard And CleanSpace

Homeowner Kyle B. of Murphysboro, Illinois was tired of dealing with constant water leaks in his basement. During extended periods of rain, water would stream out of cracks in his basement walls and pool on the floor. This made it very difficult to make effective use of the space, and he was eager to have it taken care of.

In order to waterproof the space, Woods Basement Systems foreman Juan H. and his team began by installing a WaterGuard drainage system. These gutter-like drains are put in place under the flooring at the base of the leaking walls to catch any and all water before it can make it onto the floor. After this, a CleanSpace vapor barrier was to cover the walls and seal out all moisture. Kyle couldn't be happier!

Waterproofing and Radon Mitigation Systems Installed in Murphysboro, IL

Jacqueline B. of Murphysboro, IL had water getting into her finished basement. It had wreaked havoc on the finished walls and carpeted floors. She’d also tested for radon in her home and had very high levels so she called Woods Basement System. Design Specialist Paul B. inspected the basement and recommended installing a waterproofing system and radon mitigation system.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is a drainage system that is situated on the concrete footing of the home so it won’t become clogged with mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it to sump pump for removal.

The Twin Pack was installed to collect the water from the WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The Twin Pack contains two powerful, cast-iron sump pumps to ensure the basement stays dry in all weather conditions. On the exterior of the home, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. IceGuards have slotted openings to allow water to escape into the yard if the discharge lines become frozen or clogged.

Woods installed a radon mitigation system. They drilled a hole into the slab foundation to create a path of least resistance for radon gas. The hole is connected to a pvc pip that is directed upward to a fan in the attic which actively vents the gas outside and safely away from the home.

Jacqueline B. has peace of mind that her basement well stay dry and that she no longer has to worry about dangerous radon mitigation in her home.

James L., foreman, installed the CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system. This system is made of an inorganic vapor barrier and encapsulates the crawlspace to keep the water out.

Waterproofing in Murphysboro, IL

Ted and Barbara P. of Murphysboro, IL had a damp and humid basement. This climate left the space uncomfortable and unsafe to store items. Woods Basement Systems installed products to help keep the humidity and moisture out of the basement. 

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

A SaniDry was installed to filter moisture out of the air in the crawlspace. A SaniDry is a dehumidifier for the space and will help control the humidity. Controlling the humidity of the crawlspace will reduce energy bills and make the home more comfortable because the air that is moving into the house is more controlled.

A TripleSafe sump pump was installed to provide escape for any unwanted water in the space. Water that may still get into the space will be pumped out through a discharge line that leads to the yard. If this line becomes frozen or backed up, IceGuard will prevent the water from receding back into the basement.

Vicinity of Hortense St in Murphysboro
My husband and i have just purchased a home in the last few months and as we began to live here we have seen many problems including a bowing wall in the basement. we also found out that even though we had paid an inspector he failed to mention we had zero floor jacks or supports on the addition on our home. the ceiling is now not attached to the wall and it is sinking at a very fast rate. we have to get these problems repaired asap as our babies room is in the addition it is of concern. we also discovered that the wall the inspector said is not doing anything is as we had seen that it moved a bit. we now have a large crack above that spot and it is separated. we are inquiring about this with you and another company to get a repair estimate and decide who we would love to work with on this problem looking forward to hearing from you.

Vicinity of Conifer Ln in Murphysboro
Never had a drop of water in our basement before the catastrophic floods of this spring. It came in through the walls, through the floor drain, through the septic system, and eventually through the door (it's a walkout) as the local lake flooded. Would like to see how many of these different sources we could address, in case of future flooding.
