Leaking Springfield, IL Basement Made Dry With WaterGuard Leaking Springfield, IL Basement Made Dry With WaterGuard

This Springfield, Illinois homeowner was tired of dealing with water in his basement. It was coming in where the floor meets the wall and threatening to damage the many valuables he kept in the space. To address the issue, he gave Woods Basement Systems a call. A Woods team installed gutter-like WaterGuard drains underneath the floor at the base of the walls around the perimeter of the basement. These drains catch any and all leaks and prevent them from making it into the space itself.

Crawlspace Encapsulated in Chatham, IL

David and Betty B. of Chatham, IL had a crawlspace that had water seeping into it and turning the dirt floors to mud. They couldn’t use the space for anything and it was just an eyesore. They had old, rusted window wells and leaky windows. David and Betty already knew the benefits of crawlspace encapsulation because they’d previously had Woods Basement Systems encapsulate their larger crawlspace. They knew Woods would be the right company to also take care of their smaller crawlspace so they asked for a free estimate. Design Specialist Nate H. assessed their crawlspace and window wells and gave them the perfect solution.

Woods installed CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to seal off the crawlspace. It is a thick plastic liner that prevents moisture from entering into the basement. Under the CleanSpace, Drainage Matting was installed over the dirt floors. Drainage Matting is dimpled so it creates channels for any standing water in the crawlspace to disperse. A SmartDrain was installed within the encapsulated crawlspace. It works with the CleanSpace to create a seamless, airtight seal. If there is ever a plumbing leak within the crawlspace, the SmartDrain will collect and drain away the water out of the encapsulated crawlspace. It also has a WaterWatch Alarm that will alert the homeowner to water within the crawlspace so they’ll know there’s a problem before it turns into a more costly disaster.

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Springfield, IL

Kurt and Laurie R.’s Springfield, IL home had a large crack along the foundation floor as well as vertical cracks in their drywall and crawlspace foundation wall. They found out that they had mine subsidence occurring under their home which was causing their foundation to settle. They were also having issues with water getting into the crawlspace and partially finished basement. Their crawlspace was completely unusable due to the water intrusion and it took hours to clean up and fan dry their basement so their called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Nolan M. assessed their foundation and inspected their crawlspace and basement and recommended installing a crawlspace encapsulation and basement waterproofing system as well as Push Piers.

Woods installed Push Piers along the footing of the home. High-strength steel pier sections are hydraulically driven into stable earth or bedrock below and then attached to steel brackets on the footing of the home. This transfers the weight of the home to through the piers to competent, load-bearing earth and permanently stabilizes the foundation.

Along the crawlspace walls and floors, CleanSpace was installed. CleanSpace is a thick, durable moisture barrier that prevents water from entering the crawlspace and instead directs it to the drainage system.

Under the CleanSpace, drainage matting was installed on the dirt floors of the crawlspace. Drainage matting has a dimpled design that provides channels for standing water in the crawlspace to disperse to the drainage system for removal.

SmartPipe was installed along the perimeter of the crawlspace, against the walls. It has multiple rows of holes that are covered in a filter fabric that prevents mud or debris from clogging it as it collects water from the dirt floors and foundation walls of the basement and takes it to the sump pump for removal.

The SmartSump was installed to collect water from the SmartPipe and pump it out and away from the crawlspace through its discharge lines. The SmartSump contains a powerful cast iron pump and the sump lid was designed to form an airtight seal with the CleanSpace moisture barrier.

In the basement, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. The TripleSafe contains a primary, secondary and battery back up pump to ensure the basement stays dry even in severe weather conditions and power outages.

Push Piers Stabilize Foundation in Springfield, IL

Stair step and vertical cracks in foundation walls like the ones Wade K. noticed in his Springfield, IL home are signs of foundation settlement. Soil conditions on the exterior of the foundation is the major cause of settlement. Soil can shrink and create voids when dry, move when wet or compress if it wasn’t compacted properly when the home was built, all of which cause the foundation to settle. If the foundation doesn’t settle uniformly, it can lead to the separations and cracks, which is why Wade called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Push Piers.

Woods installed the Push Piers are installed inside the basement of the home. Push Piers are made of high-strength steel sections that are hydraulically driven through steel brackets down into competent, load-bearing soil or bedrock. They transfer the weight of the home from the unstable soil conditions responsible for the settlement to the competent soil or bedrock. In many cases, Push Piers can also lift the home back to level position. After the Push Piers are in place and the home has been lifted, the Push Piers are attached to the concrete footing and locked into place to permanently stabilize the foundation. When Push Piers are installed inside the home, they are cemented over to flush position with the rest of the basement floor.

Wade K. now has peace of mind that his foundation and home are safe and permanently stable.

Damp, Humid Crawl Space Encapsulated in Chatham, IL

Amy B. of Chatham, IL had a damp crawl space. The flimsy plastic liner she had in there bunched and did nothing to keep moisture out. High humidity in the crawl space had started to rot the wooden floor joists and the space was completely unusable for storage so she called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Kevin E. inspected the crawl space and recommended an encapsulation system.

Woods secured CleanSpace over the foundation walls and dirt floors of the crawl space. CleanSpace is a durable, thick plastic moisture barrier. It prevents moisture from entering into the crawl space through the walls or floors. It’s mold resistant and its bright white color maximizes the amount of available light within the crawl space.

The SmartDrain was also installed in the crawl space. It’s lid forms an airtight, seamless seal with the CleanSpace. The SmartDrain is designed for encapsulated crawl spaces to prevent the space from filling with water if there is a plumbing leak and collect water from groundwater problems beneath the liner. Water is directed towards the special ball-and-cup drain to be drained to a bed of gravel below where it will flow into a dry well and seep into the soil below. The WaterWatch alarm in the lid of the SmartDrain alerts the owner to a plumbing leak so it can be taken care of before it turns into a major problem.

The SaniDry dehumidifier was installed in the crawl space to keep the relative humidity low. It’s energy efficient but powerful, removing up to 109 pints of water per day from crawl space air. It prevents musty smells and the conditions that cause mold growth and rot.

Cracked, Bowing Springfield, IL Basement Walls Supported With GeoLock

Brad L. of Springfield, Illinois was very worried about the state of his basement walls. Over the years, they had become riddled with cracks and had begun to slightly bow. Brad was concerned that this damage, if left unaddressed, would eventually lead to a total wall collapse. With this in mind, he gave Woods Basement Systems a call.

In order to reinforce Brad's damaged walls, foreman Juan and his team installed several GeoLock wall supports. These work by connecting heavy anchors buried deep in the firm soil far from the home to steel plates affixed to the interior surface of the damaged walls, effectively pulling them outward over time. Brad can rest easy now that his walls are secured!

Drying Damp Air

Basements are often known for damp, dank air that makes them feel like caves. But this doesn't have to be the case. Just ask Melissa C. from Springfield, IL.

 

Melissa C. had a waterproofing system in her basement that could deal with water leaks from her basement walls or floors, but even the best sump pumps can't keep the air feeling dry. That's why Todd G. installed the wonderful Sedona dehumidifier.

 

The Sedona dehumidifier is a powerful dehumidifier that can draw over 12 gallons of water from the air in a day! On top of that, the Sedona boasts an incredible air filter that can pull tiny particles like mold spores from the air.

 

With the Sedona in her basement, Melissa C. doesn't have damp cave air in her basement, she has comfortable home air instead.

TripleSafe™ Protection

A TripleSafe™ sump pump system was installed in this home in O'Fallon, IL. to work with the WaterGuard™ drainage system and keep the basement dry. 

 

Around the basement, at the foot of the walls, WaterGuard™ drains collect water that seeps into the basement through the gap between the floor and the wall. It then directs this water to the TripleSafe™ sump pump system. 

 

The flagship of sump pump systems, the TripleSafe™ is a three-pump system that can pump water out of the home in even the toughest conditions. One of the three pumps is battery operated and can kick in either when water gets too high for the first two pumps or when the power goes out to keep the water pumping out of the basement. This sump pump is always working when you need it.

 

As if that wasn't enough, the lid to the sump pump liner also features a floor drain with an alarm that can alert homeowners of any leaks coming from above so that they could check for plumbing leaks or other drips. 

 

Every angle is covered with the TripleSafe™ sump pump system and WaterGuard™.

Fixing an Uneven Sidewalk

Michael H. from St. Louis, MO. had a concrete path on his property that was slightly uneven on one side. The result was a sidewalk that was not level and created a tripping hazard where the shifted slabs met the slabs that hadn't moved. 

 

To fix this problem, Michael H. turned to the experts at Woods Basement Systems, who advised the use of PolyLevel™. PolyLevel™ is an advanced polymer that gets injected beneath the sunken slabs as a foam. Once beneath the slab, the foam solidifies into a sturdy yet light-weight structure that will hold up the concrete slab without adding to the weight on the ground beneath it. PolyLevel™ is installed through small holes that can be repaired and is dried and ready to be used the same day. 

 

With PolyLevel™, Michael H. will have an even and safe sidewalk that will be ready for traffic that same day.

Sealing Gaps in Concrete

When concrete is poured, it is usually poured in slabs that are placed next to one another. Sealant is installed between the slabs to keep them from grinding against one another and to keep things like rainwater from leaking underneath and eroding the soil beneath the concrete. Unfortunately, this seal sometimes doesn't last. Other cracks might also appear in the concrete as the slab shifts and settles. 

 

These cracks are not just ugly, but can also weaken the concrete further over time. Water can seep through these gaps and erode the soil beneath and the natural expanding and contracting that the concrete slabs experience can cause them to grind up against one another or cause the cracks to worsen. To protect the slabs and improve the longevity of the sidewalk, these gaps must be resealed.

 

The orignal seal, as well as many DIY solutions that can be found at a home improvement store, might work for a while, but will often degrade and become unable to protect the concrete slabs. That's why the experts at Woods Basement Systems use NexusPro™ sealant. This sealant is a clear and tough sealant that can stand up to the pressures of concrete expanding and contracting. It's also waterproof and UV protected, meaning it won't wash away or get dried up by the sun. NexusPro™ will prevent water from leaking beneath the slabs and can keep the slabs and cracks from grinding against each other and dealing more damage. 

 

Once all the debris is cleared from the gaps and cracks, NexuPro™ will be installed and these slabs will be protected from water damage and grinding.

Wall Anchors Installed in Springfield, IL.

When homes are constructed, a large amount of earth is removed to make room for the foundations. After the foundations are constructed, this earth is returned in a process called backfilling. Backfilled earth is often loosely compressed, which can cause problems for the foundation walls over time.

 

The loose earth will often expand and contract with changes in the weather. Clays in the soil in particular gain a large amount of volume when they get wet, causing thme to expand. This expansion can press against the foundation walls and, over time, cause cracks and bowing.

 

In order to fix bowing walls and make sure the expansion of the soils around the home doesn't continue to threaten the structure, wall anchors are installed. Wall anchors work by attaching a plate to the inside of the wall and connecting it to an anchor plate buried in the compact soil that was not dug up during the construction process. This anchor plate will help to pull the wall even as the expanding soil pushes it. The result is a permanently strengthened foundation wall that can even be straightened back to its original position over time. 

 

For this home in Springfield, IL., bowing walls won't be a concern anymore thanks to the permanent support of the wall anchor system.

Window Well Covers

Many foundation windows are built with a small semi-circular pit in front of the them called a window well. Window wells are designed to allow the window to let in natrual light by blocking back the dirt that would otherwise be pressed against the window.

 

Window wells are useful, particularly in homes where the foundation windows would otherwise be slightly below the surface of theground. Unfortunately, window wells can cause a problem. The window well that was designed to keep dirt out might also work to hold water in. This water is held by the window well against the window and foundation wall. This could cause the water to leak in around the window and ruin the basement. 

 

In larger window wells like the ones that surround an egress window, a more comprehensive system may be needed to keep the area dry and prevent leaks from getting inside. For these window wells in Sherman, IL. all that was needed was a new window well cover. 

 

While working on a larger project in this home, foreman Jesse C. took the time to clear the window wells out and add several clear window well covers to keep water and debris like leaves or dirt from getting into the window well. The covers will prevent water from getting in while still allowing sunlight into the basement. This simple fix can help alleviate leaking around foundation windows like these. 

 

If your home experiences leaks around the foundation windows, consider adding window wells with window well covers to keep the earth and rain back from the window.
