Noble already had a partial WaterGuard system installed in the basement of his Chesterfield, MO home. The system did wonders, but his goal was to keep the whole basement dry, not just part of it. So he called Woods Basement Systems, Inc. back out to finish the perimeter of the basement.
BrightWall was also installed for that fresh, clean look, and also to drain any excess water coming in from the walls to the new WaterGuard installation.
Noble was pleased with the work and now can rest easy knowing his basement is protected by a full WaterGuard system and BrightWall.
Olney residents, Sally & Robert had a very humid basement. Because it was a large space, they were not sure what kind of dehumidifier would be able to work for them. A friend referred them to Woods Basement Systems and they set up a free consultation with representative, Robert Millerbaugh.
After a thorough assessment, Millerbaugh suggested the innovative SaniDry XP dehumidifier. The couple appealed to this products because it was specially made for large spaces, and it was very powerful yet energy efficient. They scheduled the installation for the following month.
The installation by foreman Matthew Turner and his crew took a single day. The product contains a hose drain directing the water to their sump pump. Today, they are enjoying their basement and no longer have to worry about uncomfortable humidity.
Tina & Cecil’s basement started to accumulate puddles when it rained. In fear that it would get worse, they called Woods Basement Systems after being referred by a friend. System design specialist, Aaron Moore met with them on May 16, 2014 for a free consultation.

Jerry scheduled a crew to fix his basement the following month.

Tony P. of Olney, Illinois had major leakage issues in his basement. During extended periods of rain, water would invariably run down his walls and seep through the floor. This constant onslaught of water made it difficult to make effective use of the space, and he was eager to solve the problem once and for all.
A Woods Basement Systems team, led by foreman Greg, began the waterproofing process by installing under-floor WaterGuard drains at the base of the walls to catch any leaks before they can make it into the space itself.

Tony can now enjoy his dry basement!

Together this duo will ensure if water leaks in, it will be pumped right back outside! Thanks to foreman, Juan H., these products were installed quickly, yet efficiently.
Sump pump systems can get large amounts of water out of your home and into pipes that send it outside where it belongs. But what happens when those pipes get clogged with dirt and debris? Or frozen in the winter? All that water leaks out of the pipes and back toward the home.
Dolores M. of Olney, IL had this kind of problem when her drainage outlet got clogged with dirt and leaves. To prevent this issue from backing up into her basement, Dolores M. will want to ensure she has IceGuard™ installed on her drainage system.
IceGuard™ will make sure that water will continue to be pumped from your sump pump, even if the other end of the pipe is blocked or frozen.
