New Baden, Illinois homeowner David had cracks in his poured concrete foundation walls. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Brenton developed a plan for him. 

Foreman Jeremy and his crew installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. The Anchors are steel rods that are drilled through the wall and the deep into the soil. They are then anchored with steel plates on both ends. This keeps the rod anchored in the dirt on one end and spreads the pressure across the wall on the other end. This pressure gives the wall the support it needs to straighten out and close any cracks. 

David can now use his basement and trust his entire home is sturdy and safe.

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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Wet Basement Waterproofed In New Baden, IL

Dustin and Talia S. from New Baden, IL were having problems with a wet basement during and after heavy rainfalls. Frustrated and aware of the potential and more serious issues, they decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate on fixing the issue.

Systems Design Specialist Brenton K. evaluated the situation and determined that appropriate solution would be to have foreman Ryan L. waterproof the basement. In order to successfully do so, he installed Twin Pack sump pump, WaterGuard and IceGuard. All of these products work with one another to stop the water from entering the basement. WaterGuard works to collect the water and stop it from reaching the surface and pushes it through the Twin Pack sump pump, while IceGuard stops water from backing up in the winter months when freezing is a concern.

Since the waterproofing of their basement, Dustin and Talia can rest assured next time they see rain in the forecast.

Radon Mitigation in New Baden, IL

Donald S. of New Baden, Illinois tested his home for high radon levels. When his results came back and were over 4.0 picocuries per liter, he knew something had to be done. He called Woods Basement Systems to come out and help remove the dangerous gas.

Design specialist Phillip H. discussed the problem and solution with the homeowner. Foreman Brett J. headed to the home to install a radon mitigation system. The radon mitigation system is made up of PVC pipes that run underground and around the home. It collects the radon gas and sends it up and away from the home. 

Donald no longer has to worry about breathing in dangerous radon gas every day. He now has a safe home.

Basement Waterproofing in New Baden, IL

Dustin and Talia of New Baden, IL were tired of cleaning out their basement every time it rained. So they decided to call Woods Basements Systems and have the problem fixed. System Design Specialist, Brenton K., was able to create a plan to help them.

Foreman, Jose L., installed a variety of products that would prevent the basement from flooding. The first one was a CleanSpace Wall System; CleanSpace is a durable plastic liner that drains away leakage from behind the wall. The second product was an IceGuard, which allows water to flow out of the space by preventing backup should the water freeze or line clog. He also installed an Exterior Discharge line to drain the water away. And finally the WaterGuard was installed, which captures water before it enters the basement, and directs outside of the house. 

The homeowners can now enjoy their clean, dry basement!

New Baden, IL Basement Waterproofed

Dustin and Talia S. from New Baden, IL wanted to make sure their home's basement was completely water free. Once they talked to Woods Basement Systems, they were at ease and knew all their basement problems were soon going to be in the past. They then decided they wanted to update their windows and get rid of any drafts. Woods Basement Systems was happy to help with all of the homeowner's concerns!

Design specialist Brenton K. reviewed the problems and found the perfect solution. In order to make sure the basement stayed dry during all the Midwest summer storms, foreman Jose L. installed a TwinPack sump pump, an exterior discharge line, an IceGuard, a CleanSpace Wall System, and a Waterguard. The TwinPack sump pump, which has a primary and secondary pump, and the discharge line ensures that any water will be collected and then sent away from the house. The IceGuard is utilized during the winter. It makes sure that if the discharge line freezes, there is another route for the water to get out of the house. The Waterguard is placed above the footing and is then covered with concrete. The Waterguard makes sure that any rising water is collected before it can reach the surface of the basement floor. Finally, the CleanSpace Wall System is a heavy, plastic wall liner that acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaking water that occurs behind it. All of these products together can assure homeowners that there will be no flooded basement.

Old windows can get rusty and allow air and humidity to sneak inside the house, which also results in higher energy bills. Instead of just ignoring the problem, Dustin and Talia had their old windows replaced with new, more energy efficient windows. The final step on making sure the home was as energy efficient and comfortable as possible was to use rim joist spray foam to insulate the house. The foam spray expands to fill any gaps and makes sure that no air is able to get in. This results in a more comfortable home with lower energy bills.

After having Woods Basement Systems come out and work their magic, Dustin and Talia S. are very pleased with their safe and comfortable home! They no longer have to worry about a wet basement or high energy bills.

Bowing Basement Wall Repair in New Baden, IL

Debra G. from New Baden, IL called Woods Basement Systems to come take a look at her cracked basement walls and offer a free estimate for the repairs. After examining the situation in her home our team was able to determine that the cracks were from hydrostatic pressure in the foundation's surrounding soil causing the block walls to bow inward. To correct this issue and properly secure the structure of Debra's home, our System Design Specialist set a plan in motion to have 6 Geo-Lock wall anchors put in place.

The Geo-Lock wall anchors equalized the pressure being placed on the basement walls and restored them to their original positions. This solution gives Debra peace of mind that her home is now safe and secure!  

Radon Mitigation in New Baden, Illinois

Richard W. of New Baden, Illinois used a Radon Test kit from Woods Basement Systems, Inc. to test radon gas levels in his home. The test results showed an average of 20.3 pCi/L of naturally occuring Radon in his home.
