Monticello, Illinois resident Darren S. was concerned with his uneven, cracked sidewalk. The walkway was a safety concern for his friends and family. System design specialist Greg B. designed a solution to correct the walkway.

Kristin D. of Monticello, IL had cracked and bowing walls in her basement. Kristin knew that this was a sign of serious foundation issues. Woods Basement Systems was able to install products to help prevent the damages from getting worse.
Woods installed power braces in the basement to give the structure support and fix the foundation issues. The power braces are attached to the top of the structure and at the basement floor. They are used to push and hold the wall to stop inward wall movement. Over time they will help restore the vertical integrity of the foundation wall.
Matt R. of Monticello, Illinois was troubled by his bowing foudnation walls. As the walls bowed under pressure, they compromised the integrity of his foundation. System design specialist Greg B. designed a solution.

Melanie R. of Monticello, IL had a basement that had multiple issues with its foundation. The foundation walls were cracked and tilting. There were cracks along the foundation floors, a sign that the foundation was settling. The floors above had become uneven and sagged because the cement columns below that supported them were settling and pulling away with the foundation. Melanie R. was worried about the safety of her home so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the basement and recommended installing a foundation and floor support system.
Woods installed Push Piers along the concrete footing of the home. Push piers are high-strength steel pier sections that are hydraulically driven into the earth under the home into stable soil conditions or bedrock and then attached to the footing of the home using heavy-duty steel brackets. They transfer the homes weight to the more stable, load bearing earth below to halt further settling and lift the home back to level in most cases.
Along the cracked foundation walls, Woods installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. Earth anchors embedded in more stable soil condition in the yard are connected to steel wall plates in the inside of the walls with anchor rods. They counteract external soil pressure on the walls, permanently stabilizing them and preventing future damage.
Supplemental steel beams were installed along the sagging floor beam for additional support. SmartJacks were installed along the floor beam. SmartJacks are adjustable steel columns held firmly in place in a concrete footing. They lift and stabilize floors and because they’re adjustable, they offer the best opportunity to returns floors to their original, level position.
Melanie R. is relieved that she no longer has to worry about the safety of her home because her foundation is secure and her floors are supported and stable.
