This Red Bud, Illinois homeowner was trying to keep their basement dry with two sump pumps.   When the second pedestal pump would have to kick on it would often dance around in the pump pit and deactivate the swich on the other pump.  Our TripleSafe® sump pump pit holds up to three pumps.  In this case only two pumps were installed to meet the homeowners needs.  They especially liked that the second pump was elevated on a pump stand that held the pump in place and only activated the pump when there were high water levels in the sump pump pit.

Lanetta A. was surprised when she discovered water was entering her home's crawl space after big rain storms. She knew standing water could cause problems such as rotting and mold growth, so she called Woods Basement Systems.

Design specialist John S. assessed the problem and decided the best solution was to install a CleanSpace encapsulation system, a SmartPipe drainage system, a SmartSump sump pump, and a Sanidry Sedona dehumidifier. Foreman James L. then headed to the home to start the job.

The CleanSpace encapsulation system was placed on the floors and up the walls of the crawl space. This heavy duty and durable liner acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks that might occur behind the CleanSpace.

Steve was looking to close on a home in Red Bud, Illinois. Before he could close, he had to find out if the wall damage in the basement was structural or cosmetic. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call. System Design Specialist Nolan M. determined the damage was structural bowing causing the cracks and developed a plan to solve the problem. 

Foreman Mason S. and his crew installed Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to pull the wall back to its original position. Bowing walls are caused by the Earth and water around your home wanting to fill the hole that is your basement. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors use the Earth behind the active soil line to pull the wall back. A steel rod is driven through the wall into the soil. In the soil it is anchored to a steel anchor plate. On the interior a large steel anchor plate is used to distribute the pressure across a larger area. By tightening the rods slowly overtime, the cracks in the wall will close. 

With the Wall Anchors in place, Steve was able to close on the home and become a homeowner in Red Bud.

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. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Flooding Finished Basement Fitted With WaterGuard And TripleSafe In Red Bud, IL

Red Bud, Illinois homeowners Karla and DJ and only recently finished their basement when they started having major water leak issues. During extended periods of rain, water would come out from the base of the drywall and pool on the wood flooring. Portions of the drywall had already been ruined, and the water threatened furniture and valuables. The couple was eager to have the problem dealt with, so they called Woods Basement Systems. 

In order to waterproof the space, foreman Tyler and his team first had to cut away large sections of drywall and rip up some flooring to gain access to the foundation walls. After this, WaterGuard drains were installed underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch water and prevent it from making it into the space. After this, a TripleSafe sump pump was put in place to remove all water from the home and prevent flooding. Karla and DJ could have avoided a ton of extra work and money if they had waterproofed their basement BEFORE finishing it!
