Old, Inefficient Sump Pump Replaced With TripleSafe In Sherman, IL Old, Inefficient Sump Pump Replaced With TripleSafe In Sherman, IL

This Sherman, Illinois homeowner was tired of dealing with his old sump pump. It was loud, constantly filled with standing water, and totally ineffective. He was interested in getting it replaced, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

Foreman Jose and his team quickly got to work by first removing the old sump pump. They then installed a brand new TripleSafe sump system. The TripleSafe comes equipped with three independently operating pumps and is capable of removing over 10,000 gallons of water per hour. The difference is quite clear!

This Sherman, Illinois homeowner was having some issues with moisture in his crawl space. He was worried about mold growth and structural issues, so he elected to call the experts at Woods Basement Systems for help. Among other things, a Woods team installed a CleanSpace vapor barrier throughout the crawl space. This inorganic material totally seals the crawl space away from moisture and prevents mold growth. They also installed an UltraSump sump pump to remove all water present on either side of the vapor barrier and to protect from possible plumbing leaks. Look at that difference!

A sump pump was failing to operate properly in Sherman, IL, causing concern to the homeowners. To solve this issue, it was replaced with a TripleSafe Sump Pump System. This system assures protection from everyday problems with an ordinary pump. The TripleSafe can handle a heavy flow of water, thanks to a secondary pump included inside that will help eliminate the water if the first pump is unable to keep up with the amount of water that is entering it. It also features a removable airtight lid that reduces noise, prevents objects from falling in, and keeps moisture, insects, and odor from coming out of the sump. This system also includes an UltraSump battery backup system which turns on if the power goes out and effectively pumps out the water. This basement will now stay dry for years to come!

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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

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

Job Stories From Sherman, IL
Rainwater Damaging Sherman, IL Basement

In Sherman, Illinois homeowner Robert S. wanted to have his basement waterproofed. Recently, rainwater had been coming into his home damaging his items as well as the flooring and walls. Robert made a call to Woods Basement Systems to see if they could waterproof his basement once and for all.

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.

She was concerned that, if ignored, the moisture would damage her floor joists and cause air quality issues. Needing expert help, Lindsay called Woods Basement Systems.
