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.

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios

Job Stories From Pesotum, IL
Basement and Crawlspace Waterproofed and Encapsulated in Pesotum, IL

yler C. of Pesotum, IL had major water problems in his basement and crawlspace. Water would flood into his basement every time there was a hard rain and had caused major water damage to the concrete walls and floors of the basement. The old sump pump in an open pit and waterproofing system he had in place did little to nothing to keep the water out.The crawlspace turned into a muddy mess with each rain and there was water damage on the walls. Tyler was fed up with rain making his crawlspace unusable and his basement a complete mess so he called Woods Basement Systems for a free, no obligation estimate. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the crawlspace and basement and found that the best solution would be a crawlspace encapsulation system and basement waterproofing system.

Along the walls and floors of the crawlspace, CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed. CleanSpace is a thick, durable plastic liner that prevents water from entering the crawlspace and directs it to the drainage system. SmartPipe was installed along the perimeter of the crawlspace. SmartPipe is a drainage system that has multiple rows of holes covered in special filter fabric so it won’t become clogged with mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the crawlspace. It drains the water away to the sump pump.

The SmartSump was installed because it is specifically designed for encapsulated crawlspaces. It works with the CleanSpace so it forms an airtight seal. It contains a powerful, cast-iron pump that pumps any encroaching water out and away from the crawlspace.

In the basement, WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter, under the concrete floors. WaterGuard is a drainage system that sits on top of the concrete footing of the basement so it will remain free from mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and drains it away to the sump pump for removal.

The TripleSafe sump pump system was installed to accept the water from the WaterGuard and pump it outside through the discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains a primary, secondary and battery back up pump to ensure that, even in severe weather and power outages, the basement will remain dry.

The SaniDry dehumidifier was installed. The SaniDry prevents mold growth and moldy smells by removing up to 109 pints of water per day from the air, keeping relative humidity low in the basement and crawlspace.

On the discharge lines for the sump pumps, IceGuards were installed. IceGuards prevent water from coming back into the basement if the lines become frozen during winter months. They have slotted openings that provides the water an alternative escape route.

Tyler C. is thrilled he can use his crawlspace for storage, knowing his belongings will stay dry, and he’s relieved that he won’t ever have to clean up watery messes from bad weather again.
