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 Silex, MO
Supporting the Home's Foundation with PushPiers

Donna L. of Silex, Missouri owned a home with a settling foundation. Small hairline cracks were forming around her home, and growing larger daily. She wanted a solution that would stop the cracks from growing larger, while stopping the formation of new ones. She was happy when Woods Basement Systems had the perfect solution for her home. The Woods team installed our PushPier system. PushPiers work by transferring the weight of your home to stable soils or bedrock, this is done by supporting the foundation’s footing. Once the product was installed, Donna was happy knowing her home would be supported for years to come.

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.

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!

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.
