A basement in Petersburg, Illinois, had some water seepage issues that the current sump pump was not resolving. To help clean up the excess water, Woods came out and installed a french drain system called the WaterGuard System. This system collects water and directs it to the sump pump nearby. Plastic pipes are laid directly underneath the floor and sit on top of the soil to prevent clogging from dirt or other debris. With this install in place, this basement is sure to stay dry for many years to come.

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

Job Stories From Petersburg, IL
PushPier Foundation Solution

If your home shows signs of foundation settlement of any kind, Woods Basement Systems, Inc. can help. We have a variety of warrantied foundation repair products that solve all types of settlement issues, including slab piers, push piers, and helical piers.

In this Petersburg, Illinois home, we installed PushPiers. PushPiers are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel bracket. Soil is backfilled around the piers once stabilization and lifting is complete to finish the installation. This is the best foundation repair option available when soil conditions are unknown, providing a permanent solution for your settlement issues.

Seeing the Signs of a Foundation Settling

Lorri T. of Petersburg, IL. noticed a gap appearing in the arch by the front of her home. This gap was caused by uneven foundation settling. One side of the home was settling further into the ground than the other side, causing the home to be uneven. This uneven support caused the archway to crack and seperate from the rest of the home.


Fortunately, Lorri recognized this early sign of foundation settling and called Woods Basement Systems. Expert Jose L. was able to create and enact a plan to permanently support the home. The plan called for push piers to be installed along the vulnerable parts of the home. 


These push piers would be attached to the footing with a brace and pushed deep into the ground. The piers would transfer the weight of the home down to a stable soil layer or bedrock, past the troublesome, settling soil. This will permanently stabilize the home and prevent future settling. 


With a warranty that will last the life of the house, Lorri T. won't need to worry about the home settling any more thanks to the push pier system Jose installed.

Preventative Waterproofing in Petersburg, Illinois

Carlos and Carla of Petersburg, Illinois wanted to do preventative waterproofing in their basement, so they decided to call Woods basement Systems. Systems design specialist, Nolan M., recommended installing a Twin Pack sump pump, CleanSpace, and WaterGuard. 

Foreman, Dillon L., installed the products. The Twin Pack pump has two stainless steel pump placed at different heights to combat flooding. CleanSpace is a vapor barrier made of inorganic materials, so it does not support mold growth. It is used to collect water that seeps through basement walls and sends it to the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard is installed in the perimeter of the basement floor and is used to take the collected water to the sump pump to be removed from the home. 

Now, Carlos and Carla U. have a watertight home.
