Crawlspace Sealing in O'Fallon, IL

Crawlspace Sealing in O'Fallon, IL

Before After
Crawlspace Sealing in O'Fallon, IL Crawlspace Sealing in O'Fallon, IL

In O’Fallon, Illinois homeowner Nathan T. wanted to seal and waterproof his crawlspace. He began to notice that the floor above the crawlspace was sinking in and a smell coming from the space. He heard from a friend who had gotten his crawlspace sealed and waterproofed by Woods Basement Systems that he is now able to use the space for storage and it no longer effects the home above. Because of this, Dan finally decided to call Woods.

We sent our foreman Dwayne M. and his team out to the home to seal the crawlspace once and for all. They used our patented CleanSpace liner, which is a thick durable liner (similar to a pool liner) to cover the flooring and walls of crawlspace. Now, Dan has peace of mind knowing his crawlspace is sealed and waterproofed.

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

Interior Push Piers and Waterguard in Old Monroe, MO

Old Monroe, MO homeowners Richard and Irene were concerned with the settling of their garage and noticed a crack near the wall leading the sump pump. They contacted Woods Basement Systems for their free estimate and System Design Specialist Jeremy R. developed a plan for them. 

Foreman Miguel O. and his crew installed Push Piers and WaterGuard along the wall.

Push Piers are steel rods that are driven into the soil beneth the home. They go down to the bedrock to provide resistance from settling and in many cases lift the foundation back to its original position. During the install more pressure is applied to the rod than when the strusture is on it to insure they can handle the weight of the structure. 

The WaterGuard that was paired with the Push Piers goes on the interior perimeter of the wall. It is under the floor to catch water before it enters and direct it away to the sump pump. Since the WaterGuard sits slightly off the wall, it can also catch water that seeps in through the porous concrete walls. 

Richard and Irene now have peice of mind that their items stored in the garage will be kept dry and their foundation will settle no more. 

Concrete Repaired In Old Monroe, MO

Andrew H. from Old Monroe, MO made the decision to call Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate when saw that the concrete outside his home was cracking. These cracks can happen as the result of several causes, some of which being the weight that it is responsible for holding up or the weight of the concrete itself, which also leads to uneven settlement.

When Systems Design Specialist Todd M. visited the home, he assessed that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Andrew T. to install PolyLevel, a foam that is injected into the concrete and lifts the surface and fills in cracks.

Upon the installation of PolyLevel, Andrew is very happy and satisfied that the quality of his home has been restored.

Waterproofing Installed in Old Monroe, MO

Randall and Robyn W. of Old Monroe, MO had water leaking into their basement. The water did not have any way to get out of the basement. Woods Basement Systems was able to install a proper drainage system for the water.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed against the wall in the concrete of the floor. The water will flow into the WaterGuard, allowing the piping to lead the water out of the basement.

Woods installed a discharge line that was attached to a Twin Pack sump pump. This sump pump would pump the water in the basement through the discharge line. The discharge line leads the water into the yard where it is drained. The line can become frozen or clogged in some situations. In order to prevent the water from backing up into the basement, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard provides an escape route for the water so that it does not back up into the basement. 

Wall Anchors and Waterproofing in Old Monroe, MO

Mike O. of Old Monroe, MO had water leaking into the basement throught the cracks of his basement walls. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to fix both the leaking and the failing foundation.

Woods installed GeoLock wall anchors to provide support for the home. These anchors are attached to the wall and is anchored to the yard outside. This is done by using poles to extend past the active zone in the yard. This will support the foundation of the home for the life of the structure so the homeowners will never have to worry about a failing foundation.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed against the wall in the concrete of the floor. The water will flow into the WaterGuard, allowing the piping to lead the water out of the basement.

A 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.
