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

Cracked Foundation Repaired with Push Piers in Smithton, IL

Kevin N. of Smithton, IL is having some problems with the foundation of his home. There is a vertical crack on the foundation located on the outside of his home.

Leveling and Sealing a Driveway

This driveway in Smithton, IL. was begining to show signs of uneven settling. The soil beneath the driveway was compressing due to weather and weight pressing it down. As the soil settled, the concrete would lose its support and begin to settle with it.


In addition to making the driveway become uneven, this can lead to cracking and damage as the concrete slabs bump into one another.


To fix this problem and level the driveway, Justin G. injected PolyLevel™ beneath the uneven sections to lift them into place. PolyLevel™ is a foam material that gets injected through small holes in the concrete. Once in place, the foam hardens into a super tough and very lightweight support that holds the concrete up without adding to the weight on the soil below.


PolyLevel™ is tough enough to be used beneath airport runways and is fast enough to be installed and solidified in just a few minutes.


With the driveway leveled, the cracks can be filled with NexusPro™ joint sealant. This sealant will flex with the concrete as it naturally shrinks and expands due to weather, but will prevent the slabs from rubbing into and damaging each other. It also keeps water from seeping through the gaps, where it could continue to erode the soil in places. 


Now this Smithton driveway is leveled and protected from future settling.

Water Standing in Crawl Space Prevented with CleanSpace in Smithton, IL

Susan of Smithton, Illinois wanted to waterproof her crawl space after years of water standing and creating harm. Woods Basement System's system design specialist, Sam W., designed a plan to solve Susan's waterproofing needs. Sam recommended installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system to protect and maintain a clean environment within her crawl space. 

Head foremen, James L., with the help of his crew installed the CleanSpace system into the crawl space. A CleanSpace encapsulation system is made out of an inorganic material that seals the entire crawl space from outer elements and won't create mold. Thanks to CleanSpace, Susan can enjoy her home knowing that her crawl space will be safe and clean.

Custom-Fit Concrete Repair in Smithton, IL

Shari L. in Smithton, IL was concerned about sinking, uneven slabs of concrete in the walkway in front of her home. Having worked with Woods Basement Systems previously, she reached out to Team Woods for assistance. Shari met with System Design Specialist Barry C. and received a no-cost estimate on an easy, innovative solution.

Foreman Andrew T. and his crew injected PolyLevel into the affected areas to tackle the damage at the source. PolyLevel is an advanced polyurethane solution that can be injected directly under sinking slabs and into problematic cracks for reliable concrete repair in as little as 15 minutes, all without the noise and hassle of jacking. Now Shari's concrete concerns are gone for good thanks to PolyLevel!

PolyLevel Saves Concrete Porch From Retaining Wall Settlement

Smithton, Illinois homeowner Shari had a front porch with a brick retaining wall near the drive. Years of rain had washed dirt through the bricks causing the porch to begin to settle. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and Team Woods developed a plan for her. 

The plan included injecting PolyLevel under the porch near the retaining wall. As the PolyLevel expanded it raised the concrete slab of the porch. Lifting it to its original position. 

Since the PolyLevel is inorganic Shari no longer has to worry about the wash out causing more damage.

Moving Sump Pump in Basement

Pam, a Smithton, Illinois homeowner, was having problems with a wet basement even with her sump pump. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Adam developed a plan for her. 

Foreman Vern and his crew moved the sump pit to the corner of her basement and installed a new TripleSafe sump pump and WaterGuard. By moving the sump pit to the lowest point of the basement we can be more likely to get all the water collected. 

WaterGuard goes along the perimeter of the basement and will direct any ground water coming in through construction gaps to the pump before it ever gets to the basement floor. 

Pam now has a dry basement and knows Woods is there for her. 

Push Piers and PolyLEVEL Work Together to Raise Garage

Mark, a Smithton, Illinois homeowner, was experiencing water pooling at his back door. When he was inspecting the casue he noticed the garage seemed to have lowered from where it was originally poured. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Nolan M. developed a plan to get his garage back up. 

Foreman Miguel O. and his crew installed Push Piers around the exterior of the garage. The Push Piers will lift the garage back up and give it the resistance it needs against gravity to not settle anymore. They then injected PolyLEVEL under the garage and walkway to fill the void. The PolyLEVEL is lightweight and will not mix with the soil and wash out. 

Mark and his wife now have a level garage and walkway and the water no longer pools at their doorway. 

Radon Mitigation System Installed in Smithton, IL

Allen of Smithton, IL heard about the dangers of radon and was worried his basement was compromised. Learning that Woods Basement Systems, Inc. of Collinsville offers free quotes and radon testing, Allen contacted the company and scheduled for someone to inspect his home. 

A few weeks later, Woods Basement Systems, Inc. sent one of their System Design Specialists, Ken, to provide Allen a free radon test. The test was positive for radon so Ken suggested to Allen that his home needed a Radon Mitigation System to release the radon out of his home and into the atmosphere. Agreeing with Ken's diagnosis and solution, Allen went ahead and made an appointment for Woods to send a team out to his home to fix his radon problem. 

Shortly afterwards, Mike, one of the foremen for Woods Basement Systems, Inc., and his crew traveled to Smithton, IL and installed the Radon Mitigation System into Allen's home. The crew exceeded Allen's expectations and was very satisfied with the work that was done to keep radon out of his house.
