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

Job Stories From Saint Joseph, IL
Crawl Space Encapsulation in Saint Joseph, IL

Jeff and Jennifer, Saint Joseph, Illinois homeowners, decided it was time their vented crawl space needed to be taken care of. They gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Greg B. developed the ideal plan for their needs. 

Foreman Josh B. and his crew installed a full line up of crawl space encapsulation materials. Starting with clearing the crawl space, they then covered the vents with our gasketed Vent Covers. These Vent Covers go on the outisde of the home to add appeal while keeping critters and air out of the crawl space. 

The crew then installed CleanSpace with drainage matting on the floors of the crawl space. The Cleanspace is an anti-microbiol, inorganic vapor barrier that keeps the water from the soil from penetrating the air of the home. With the drainage matting underneath, the water vapor has an area to collect, it can then follow the grooves to the sump pump to be removed from the crawl space. 

The old crawl space sump pump was removed and replaced with a new SmartSump, completed with SmartPipe, IceGuard, and a Bubble Pot Lawnscape Outlet. 

Finishing the crawl space encapsulation is a SaniDry Sedona. This dehumidifier is the only Energy Star rated dehumidifier and can be placed and forgotten about with a automatic drainage line into the sump pump. It can remove 95 pints of water a day while removing allergens and mold spores and is only 60 pounds. 

Now Jeff and Jennifer have a clean dry crawl space. They now have added storage space now and no fears of critters, allergens, and mold getting into their home. 

Moisture in Crawl Space and Foundation Repair Repaired by Woods Basement Systems

Ed C. of St. Joseph, IL was noticing moisture in his crawl space as well a settle foundation issue. Ed contacted Woods Basement Systems to have his crawl space evaluated by one of our design specialists to ensure that the problem would not get worse. 

 

Once an appointment was made, we sent our design specialist Gregory B. determined that this problem Ed was facing was in fact a settling foundation and that his crawl space needed repaired. To protect against further damage, Joshua B installed clean space with drainage matting to help insulate the crawl space to help hold in moisture. Joshua also installed Smart Pipe systems to help support the settling from getting worse.

 

When the work was complete, Ed was pleased and no longer have to worry about future problems in his home. 

Waterproofing in St. Joseph, IL

Karen and Jay W. from St. Joseph, IL were having problems with water coming into their basement when it would rain, so they decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a free quote before the issue got entirely out of hand.

Woods Basement Systems sent one of their Systems Design Specialists, Kevin E., to evaluated the situation and design an appropriate solution. It was decided that Greg H., a foreman, should waterproof the basement by installing WaterGuard, IceGuard and Triple Safe sump pump. All of these products work together in order to keep the basement dry. WaterGuard pushes water and stops it from reaching the surface though the Triple Safe sump pump, while IceGuard works to keep water flowing during winter months when freezing is a concern.

Since the waterproofing of their basement, Karen and Jay no longer have to be concerned when it rains.

Settled and Uneven Concrete Resolved by PolyLevel in St. Joseph, IL

Todd K. of St. Joseph, IL was having problems with settled and uneven concrete around his home. Over time, this can happen due to the combination of the weight of concrete and what it supports. He contacted Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate about fixing the problem.

Systems Design Specialist Gregory B. evaluated the situation and determined that the proper solution would be for Foreman Andrew T. to insert PolyLevel injection. PolyLevel is a foam injection that is easily installed in 4-steps. It lifts the concrete, resulting in a safe and level surface.

Todd R. no longer has to worry about the settling and uneven concrete regarding the safety of his home.

Crawlspace Redone in St. Joseph, IL

Rondey V. of St. Joseph, IL had standing water in his crawlspace. The water had no way to escape and threatened the home with mold and rotting wood. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to protect the home.

Woods installed CleanSpace to seal off the space and prevent water and moisture from getting in. A drainage matt was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. These covers create an air tight seal and do not allow water or moisture into the crawlspace.                                                               

Woods also installed a SaniDry. The SaniDry system filters moisture out of the air and makes the crawlspace less humid. Controlling the humidity in the crawlspace is important to preventing mold. The less moisture, the harder it is for the mold to grow.

A TripleSafe sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary.

Brunswick Ct in Saint Joseph
We are looking to have an egress window cut and installed into our poured basement to make an additional bedroom. You came recommended from a friend who just used you to install an egress window in a basement in Champaign. Wasn't sure if you handled excavation, cutting, window install, window well and drainage aspects or just a portion.
Old Police Park Rd in Saint Joseph
I have recently used a radon monitor and believe I have an elevated radon concentration. The reading I am getting is 10.1 pCi/liter. Is this high? What do you recommend for mediation? My basement is 10 years old. It is approx 1900sf with approx. 60% finished. I have two open floor drains and my sump pits are not fully sealed. This may be where some of the readings are coming from. I have no vent or power venting system. What would you charge to install a power vent? What other sealing would you recommend besides sealing the pits and open drains?
