This Sparta, Illinois crawl space originally had a tarp covering its dirt floor. Tarps can collect dirt which can lead to the buildup of mold and mildew which creates foul odors. Adding a vapor barrier such as CleanSpace to a crawl space eliminates the risk of mold and mildew growth and creates a clean, usable area in the crawl space that can be used for storage.

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!

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

Job Stories From Sparta, IL
Wet Sparta, IL Basement Waterproofed With TripleSafe And WaterGuard

Tom W. of Sparta, Illinois was having issues with water leaking into his basement. During periods of rain, it would leak from behind the wood paneling on the bottom half of the wall. Over time, the water had badly damaged this paneling and had led to mold growth behind it. Tom wanted the issue taken care of quickly and professionally, so he called Woods Basement Systems.

In order to waterproof the basement, foreman Miguel and his team first had to rip out the wood paneling on the bottom of the wall. After this, WaterGuard drains were installed underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch the leaks and prevent them from making it onto the floor. Finally, a TripleSafe sump pump, equipped with three independently operating pumps, was put in place to remove any water caught by the WaterGuard drains. Tom couldn't be happier!

Ann of Sparta, Illinois previously used her basement as storage space. Once she noticed water leaking into the space, she decided to take action and contact Woods Basement Systems. She was then put in contact with system design specialist, Luke K., who recommended a TwinPack sump pump, WaterGuard, and CleanSpace. 

Juan H. lead her team our foreman in installing these new products. Once completed, Ann was excited to see the basement clean and waterproofed!

System design specialist, Luke K., investigated the basement and recommended installing push piers into the footing of the home to bring the home back to its original position. The bowing walls were a major concern, so to ensure the walls wouldn't bow anymore push piers needed to correct the foundations stability.

Walls Stabilized by Geo-Lock Wall Anchors in Sparta, IL.

Elizabeth H. had already done work with Woods Basements before to stabilize other walls in her basement before she knew the benefits of Geo-Lock Anchors. When she had her annual maintenance performed by Nate H., he noticed that the other walls in her basement had begun bowing. In some places they were bowing over an inch and support beams had begun to intrude through the walls! He recommended more Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to prevent new cracks from forming or possible wall failure.

 

Eleven more Geo-lock Anchors were installed in the remaining basement walls. They were tightened to ensure that the walls wouldn't bow or move any further and over time, straighten the walls.

Elizabeth H. was relieved that the bowing was caught early enough to avoid any bigger problems and Woods Basement Systems was there to fix her problem.

Barry, a previous customer of Woods Basement Systems called back for an extra sump pump in his new CleanSpace crawl space.  The Ultra Sump was installed just in case his primary pump failed.  This pump would be the back up system and would turn on to keep this space from leaking.  Now, Barry is greatly satisfied with the condition of his crawl space and how it will forever stay clean and dry.
