This Pawnee, Illinois basement had experienced several water leaks, and the owners wanted to take action before more damage could develop. This couple reached out to Woods Basement Systems to get a professional's option on how their basement could be protected from water damage. Team Woods installed WaterGuard french drains around the perimeter of the basement to stop and collect water before the water could create damage.

David and Charity H. of Pawnee, Illinois needed a better way to protect their basement from water leaking in from outside. Foreman Mike D. knew just the remedies they needed.

In a basement such as theirs, water can often seep in the crack between the wall and the floor, as well as through small gaps in the walls. The first step is making sure that any water that does come from those areas is diverted to the sump pump so that it can be pumped back outside.

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

In Pawnee, Illinois homeowner Briana F. was having problems with water entering her basement. For years now, every time it would storm or rain water would get into her basement. She was tired of all of the cleanup and worrying about the basement if she was away or not home. After asking around, she decided to call Woods Basement Systems to see if they had a solution to her problem.

We sent our foreman Jose Lorenzana and his team out to the home to install a few of our patented waterproofing products. First, we installed a new sump pump system over the failed system the homeowner had before. Next we installed our patented WaterGuard system, WaterGuard is our interior drainage system that sets on-top of the footing of the home. This allows the system to stay clear while the water is collected and sent out of the home.

Flooded Basement in Pawnee, IL Installs UltraSump, WaterGuard, & SaniDry

Paula of Pawnee, Illinois wanted to waterproof her basement after repeatedly experiencing water damage. Flooding was a common occurrence in Paula's home, and she needed a permanent, dependable solution to waterproof her space.

Team Woods installed a few of Woods' top waterproofing products to help protect the wet, basement. These products included an UltraSump pump, WaterGuard drains, and a SaniDry dehumidifier.

Wet Basement In Pawnee, IL Waterproofed

Paula and Phil C. from Pawnee, IL was experiencing a wet basement after a heavy rainfall would occur. Upon the realization that this could cause future and more serious issues for they home, they decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate about fixing the issue.

Systems Design Specialist David G. visited the home and designed an appropriate solution. He told foreman Michael P. to waterproof the basement. In order to successfully do so, he installed WaterGuard, Triple Safe sump pump, Twin Pack sump pump and IceGuard. These products all work together in order to keep the basement dry. WaterGuard stops water from reaching the surface and pushes it through Triple Safe and Twin Pack sump pumps, which IceGuard stops water from freezing and getting stuck, which could lead to further problems during the winter months when freezing is a possibility.

Paula and Phil are very happy that they now have a waterproofed basement that will stay dry during the next rainfall.

Basement Repair In Pawnee, IL

Joyce B.'s basement was in need of some work. She realized that her crawl space needed to be repaired in addition to her foundation. His drywall was cracking in the interior, one of the many signs that a crawl space needs repair, in addition to the SmartJack's being installed several years, so she called Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate.

One of our team members visited the home and determined that the appropriate solution would be to install CleanSpace and new SmartJack's. CleanSpace is installed across the floor and walls and seals the crawl space and is heavy-duty. It also blocks water vapor from the walls or soil from entering the crawl space. SmartJack works to keep the foundation strong and stable.

Since the installation of these products, Joyce can rest assured that her CrawlSpace and foundation are safe.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Pawnee, IL

Jerry M. of Pawnee, Illinois discovered that his crawl space was holding water. He knew that standing water could cause rotting and mold growth, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Brandon B. assessed the situation and decided that the best solution was to install a SmartSump sump pump and a CleanSpace Encapsulation System. Foreman James L. then traveled to the home to get the job started.

The SmartSump is a sump pump specifically made for crawl spaces. It collects and removes any water from the crawl space through a discharge line. The CleanSpace Encapsulation System is a heavy duty liner that acts as a water vapor barrier and completely seals the crawl space from the earth. It is placed on the floor and up the walls of the crawl space.

Jerry M. no longer has to worry about any rotting or mold growth due to standing water. He now has a dry and waterproof crawl space.
