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

Homeowners get an Insulation Upgrade in Nashville, IL

OJ and Susan F. of Nashville, IL had a hard time heating and cooling their home. Rooms were uncomfortably hot in the summer no matter how much they used their air conditioner. They had the same issue with rooms being too cool in the winter despite turning up their heat. The energy bills seemed way too high even though they still weren’t comfortable in their home so they called Woods Basement Systems and Dr. Energy Saver. Design Specialist Peter N. performed a free energy audit on the home to find areas determine where energy was being lost and recommended air sealing and upgrading their insulation in their attic.

Gaps or holes like those around wiring, can lights, scuttle entrances and windows and doors in an attic can allow heated or air to escape, which causes warmer or cooler air from the outside to take its place. Woods found any openings in this attic and sealed them used a an expanding spray foam to prevent air leaks.

After air sealing the home, Woods blanketed the floor with blown in cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation the “green,” insulation choice because it is made from recycled newspapers that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. It’s treated with a nontoxic borate solution that makes it noncombustible as well as resistant to mold and pests. When this insulation is combined with air sealing, it can reduce heating and cooling costs up to 40%.
