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!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps

Job Stories From Silex, MO
Sinking Silex, MO Foundation Righted With Push Piers

Silex, Missouri resident Jim M. recently began to notice several worrying signs in his home. Doors and windows were sticking, there were cracks around the interior doorways, and parts of the brick facade were pulling off of the house. All of this made him suspect that his foundation was sinking, but he called Woods Basement Systems for an expert opinion. 

System design specialist Barry visited Jim's home and determined that the foundation was, in fact, sinking. In order to fix this, a Woods team installed several Low-Profile Push Piers underneath the foundation to lift and level it. These galvanized steel piers are incredibly strong and are placed through small holes underneath the home before being adjusted to support it.  

Bowing Silex, MO Basement Wall Supported With GeoLock

Jim M. of Silex, Missouri was very worried about the state of one of his basement walls. Over the years, the outside pressure from the soil had badly cracked the wall and caused it to bow inward. Jim was concerned that, if left unchecked, the wall may eventually collapse.

In order to reinforce the damaged walls, a Woods Basement Systems 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. 

CleanSpace Keeps Silex, MO Crawl Space Clean and Dry

Marcia B. in Silex, MO was concerned about excess moisture and humidity in her crawl space, so she contacted Woods Basement Systems to explore her waterproofing options. Marcia met with System Design Specialist Josh B., who gave her a no-cost estimate on the ideal system for long-lasting protection from water.

Foreman Jesse C. and his team installed CleanSpace to protect the basment from unwanted water. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier designed to seal out excess moisture and microbial growth while trapping in heat to transform the crawl space into a clean, dry, energy-efficient home asset. Marcia's crawl space issues are over now thanks to CleanSpace!

Push Piers Installed in Silex, MO

Silex, Missouri homeowner Gabe had a gap forming between two walls in his living room. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Chris T. developed a plan. 

Foreman Miguel O. and his crew installed Push Piers along the foundation of the home. Push Piers are steel rods that lift the foundation of a home by providing resistance between the home and the moving soil. By pushing the pier down to solid bedrock we can prevent future settling and separating of materials. 

Gabe can now rest easy knowing his home will be stable for decades to come. 

Push Pier Stabilizes Home in Silex, MO

Mike H was concerned when he noticed that his basement walls were beginning to bow. So, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems. One of our System Design Specialists was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

A Push Pier was installed underneath Mike’s home. The Push Pier will be driven into the ground to a stable level of soil. The Push Pier will support the portion of the house that is sinking. It will even be able to raise its level over time

Helical Pier Stabilizes Home in Silex, MO

Eleanor L was concerned when she noticed that her floors were beginning to sink. So, she decided to call Woods Basement Systems. One of our System Design Specialists was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

Foreman Jose L installed a Helical Pier underneath Eleanor’s home. A Helical Pier works by being driven into a stable level of soil, it will then support the section of the home that is sinking. It will also be able to raise the level of the sinking floor over time.

Wet Basement Waterproofed in Silex, MO

David D. from Silex, MO was having problems with a wet basement after heavy rainfalls. Upon realizing the frustration and issues that a wet basement was causing, he decided to contact Woods Basement Systems for a free quote about fixing the issue.

Systems Design Specialist Ed B. evaluated the situation and determined that the appropriate solution would be to have foreman Matt T. waterproof the basement. In order to successfully do so, he installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard pushes water towards the top of the surface to keep it from reaching the ground.

Since the waterproofing of his basement, David is no longer concerned when he sees rain in the forecast.

PolyLevel Flattens Out Concrete in Silex, MO

Greg B was concerned about the uneven concrete on his patio. So, he decided to call Woods Basement Systems. System Design Specialist Nolan M was able to come up with a solution to the problem.

Foreman William T used PolyLevel to raise the sections of the concrete that were sinking. PolyLevel is injected into the concrete and will push it up so that is level with the rest of the patio. The injection leaves behind a small hole, which will be filled in with concrete.

Vicinity of Hwy PP in Silex
Vicinity of Hwy D in Silex
I have a house that is 749 square feet built in the 40"s that is on telephone pole peers, this spring I didn't notice the concrete slab in front of the house sloped towards the house and when we got all that rain it got under the house causing the house to settle drastically, so I am needing a estimate to have the house leveled and re peered, and the slab jacked to slope away from the home if possible.
