The crawl space of Don M.’s Rochester, IL home was damp. He couldn’t use it for storage without fear of water damage so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended a crawl space encapsulation system.

As part of that system, Woods secured CleanSpace along the floors and part of the walls in the crawl space. CleanSpace is a thick and durable plastic moisture barrier that prevents ground water from entering the crawl space, making it safe for storage.

Don M. was having trouble keeping his Rochester, IL home comfortable. He had drafts coming into his home from the crawlspace. His energy bills were high from needing to run his air conditioning and heating much longer to get less change in the temperature of his home so he called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended insulating and encapsulating his crawl space.

Woods installed SilverGlo over the foundation walls and rim joists in the crawl space. SilverGlo is a graphite-infused rigid foam insulation that has a reflective surface to create a radiant barrier that reflects heat back into the crawl space. SilverGlo is waterproof and mold-resistant so it also prevents moisture from entering into the crawl space through the foundation walls. It seals drafts out and heated and cooled air in the crawl space.

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!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

SmartJack Fixes Basement Floors in Rochester, IL

John B. of Rochester, IL gave Woods Basement System a call when he discovered his basement floors were sinking and unleveled. We sent our system design specialist, Thomas W. to doa  home inspection and further discuss with the homeowner a design he created that would resolve the issue. 

Foreman, Joshua B. did a SmartJack Crawlspace Stabilizer installation. A likely cause of sinking basement floors could be the brick columns being too space apart in the crawlspace or weakened floor joists and girders. The SmartJack is a steel support system that stabilizes and levels the floors joists and girders in the crawlspace which lifts the floor back to its original position. Once the installation is done, it can hold more than 60,000 pounds. 

John B. will not have to worry about the stability of his home.

Basement Wall Repair in Rochester, IL

When Neil P. of Rochester, IL discovered his basement walls were bowing inward, he gave Woods Basement System a call for help.

System design specialist, Matthew S. did an inspection on the home and created a design that would fix the problem. Foreman, Jeremy R. also travled to Rochester, IL and did a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor installation. Basement walls begin to buckle and bow due to the soil around the home causing an intense amount of pressure on the walls. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchor permanently stabilizes the home and potentially straightens the wall over time. The wall anchors are made of galvanized steel that completely prevents further damage from occuring. 

Neil P. could not be happier knowing his home is not only safe but stable. 

SmartJack Used to Stabilize Home in Rochester, IL

When John B noticed that his floor was sinking he knew that he needed to do something. So he called Woods Basement System. System Design Specialist Thomas W was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

Foreman Joshua B installed a SmartJack underneath John’s home. The SmartJack will rest on stable soil and support the portion of the foundation that is sinking and even raise the level of the floor overtime; making the home safe, and the structure stable.

Crawl Space Insulated and Encapsulated in Rochester, IL

Don M. of Rochester, IL had a damp crawl space that was unusable for storage without fear of water damage. His crawl space also wasn’t insulated which had allowed cold drafts to get into the home and made it harder to keep the home comfortable due the heating and cooling ductwork running through the space and being exposed to warm temperatures during the summer and cold temperatures during the winter so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Brandon B. inspected the crawl space and recommended an encapsulation system as well as crawl space insulation.

Woods installed SilverGlo over the foundation walls and rim joists in the crawl space. SilverGlo is a rigid foam insulation that is infused with graphite powder to improve the insulating value. They have a reflective coating that creates a radiant barrier to reflect heat back into the space. SilverGlo forms an air barrier over the foundation walls to make the home more energy efficient. It’s waterproof and won’t become damaged by mold so it is effective at preventing moisture from entering the crawl space through the foundation walls.

CleanSpace was installed over the dirt floors of the crawl space and sealed against the SilverGlo. CleanSpace is is a thick, durable plastic moisture barrier that prevents moisture from entering the crawl space through the dirt floors to keep the crawl space safe for storage.

Drainage matting was installed underneath the CleanSpace. Its dimpled design creates channels for standing water under the encapsulation system to disperse.

Don M. has peace of mind that he can use his crawl space for storage without fear of water damage and his insulation will end up saving him money on his energy bills.

CleanSpace installed in Rochester, IL

Casey T. of Rochester, IL wanted to use his crawlspace for storage but there was was a problem. Water seeped in through the foundation walls of the crawlspace and turned the dirt floors into a muddy mess making it completely unusable. Casey called Woods Basements Systems for a free assessment. Design Specialist Nolan M. inspected the crawlspace and recommended installing an encapsulation system.

Woods encapsulated the crawlspace using CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace is a thick, durable plastic liner that prevents water from entering the crawlspace. Drainage Matting was installed under the CleanSpace over the dirt floors. It’s dimpled so it provides channels for standing water in the crawlspace to disperse out of the crawlspace.

A SmartDrain was installed in the crawlspace and seamlessly with the CleanSpace vapor barrier. If there is ever a plumbing leak into the encapsulated crawlspace, the SmartDrain will collect the water to be drained into a bed of gravel where it will flow into a dry well and seep into the soil below. The SmartDrain is also equipped with a WaterWatch alarm system so if water is detected entering the drain, the homeowner will know there’s an issue before it becomes an even bigger problem.

Casey T. is happy he can now store his belongings in his crawlspace without worries.

Sump Pump Installed in Rochester, IL

Bill G. in Rochester, IL was having flooding issues in his basement. Bill was concerned that his property would be damaged if the flooding continued. Woods Basement Systems provided a efficient solution for the space.

Woods installed a Twin Pack sump pump that would be able to pump large amounts of water out of the basement. The sump pump will pump the unwanted water to they yard using a discharge line. The discharge line can become clogged or frozen. To prevent the water from receding back into the basement, Woods installed IceGuard to provide an escape route for the water.

Wet Basement Fixed in Rochester, IL

Donna’s home in Rochester was about 60 years old when she realized her basement was accumulating water.  After she saw a commercial on TV, she called Woods Basement Systems and set up a free consultation with representative, Marc Cooper.

After Marc’s thorough assessment, he discussed with Donna her options.  He advised her to prevent some of the accumulating surface water, as well as install an interior drainage system.  Donna was impressed with Marc’s knowledge & professionalism and scheduled a crew to come the following week.

Foreman Jessir Carson and his crew complete the entire job in two days.  They installed the TrenchDrain to stop surface water from entering her basement.  Then, they installed the WaterGuard system which acts as an interior French drain.  Donna was impressed with the crew’s hard work and how fast they completed the job. Today, her basement is waterproofed and she can be confident she will not have this issue for many years to come.
