Wet Basement Repair and Refinishing

Basement disrepair can present itself in a variety of ways. Even small things like a musty smell or extra moisture can be indicators of a deeper problem.

Basement Waterproofed in Springfield, IL

Even though she had a sump pump, it was unable to keep up with the amount of water getting in and the belongings she had stored there were still threatened with water damage so she called Woods Basement Systems. After thoroughly inspecting the basement, Design Specialist Greg B. recommended installing PowerBraces and a new waterproofing system.

Woods installed PowerBraces along the cracked walls. PowerBraces were adjustable, zinc-coated steel beams that are cut to fit the exact height of the basement. They are fit firmly against the walls and held in place by steel brackets attached to the cement floors and floors joists above. They are rust resistant and will prevent future damage to the walls. They can be tightened during dry periods for the opportunity to improve the wall.

WaterGuard is situated away from any mud or debris as it collected intruding water from the foundation walls and floors, using its wall flanges and channel holes, and drains it to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe was installed to take the water from the WaterGuard and expel it safely away from the basement through the discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains three powerful pumps, including a battery back up pump, to protect the basement from weather ranging from light showers to heavy downpours, even during a power outage.

Push Piers Stabilize Foundation in Springfield, IL

Stair step and vertical cracks in foundation walls like the ones Wade K. noticed in his Springfield, IL home are signs of foundation settlement. Soil conditions on the exterior of the foundation is the major cause of settlement. Soil can shrink and create voids when dry, move when wet or compress if it wasn’t compacted properly when the home was built, all of which cause the foundation to settle. If the foundation doesn’t settle uniformly, it can lead to the separations and cracks, which is why Wade called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended installing Push Piers.

Woods installed the Push Piers are installed inside the basement of the home. Push Piers are made of high-strength steel sections that are hydraulically driven through steel brackets down into competent, load-bearing soil or bedrock. They transfer the weight of the home from the unstable soil conditions responsible for the settlement to the competent soil or bedrock. In many cases, Push Piers can also lift the home back to level position. After the Push Piers are in place and the home has been lifted, the Push Piers are attached to the concrete footing and locked into place to permanently stabilize the foundation. When Push Piers are installed inside the home, they are cemented over to flush position with the rest of the basement floor.

Wade K. now has peace of mind that his foundation and home are safe and permanently stable.

They were also having issues with water getting into the crawlspace and partially finished basement. Their crawlspace was completely unusable due to the water intrusion and it took hours to clean up and fan dry their basement so their called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Nolan M. assessed their foundation and inspected their crawlspace and basement and recommended installing a crawlspace encapsulation and basement waterproofing system as well as Push Piers.

Woods installed Push Piers along the footing of the home. High-strength steel pier sections are hydraulically driven into stable earth or bedrock below and then attached to steel brackets on the footing of the home. This transfers the weight of the home to through the piers to competent, load-bearing earth and permanently stabilizes the foundation.

Along the crawlspace walls and floors, CleanSpace was installed. CleanSpace is a thick, durable moisture barrier that prevents water from entering the crawlspace and instead directs it to the drainage system.

Under the CleanSpace, drainage matting was installed on the dirt floors of the crawlspace. Drainage matting has a dimpled design that provides channels for standing water in the crawlspace to disperse to the drainage system for removal.

SmartPipe was installed along the perimeter of the crawlspace, against the walls. It has multiple rows of holes that are covered in a filter fabric that prevents mud or debris from clogging it as it collects water from the dirt floors and foundation walls of the basement and takes it to the sump pump for removal.

The SmartSump was installed to collect water from the SmartPipe and pump it out and away from the crawlspace through its discharge lines. The SmartSump contains a powerful cast iron pump and the sump lid was designed to form an airtight seal with the CleanSpace moisture barrier.

In the basement, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System was installed. The TripleSafe contains a primary, secondary and battery back up pump to ensure the basement stays dry even in severe weather conditions and power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines of the pumps on the exterior of the home. IceGuards have slotted openings to prevent water from getting back into the basement and crawlspace if the discharge lines become frozen during cold winter months.

We also installed a SaniDry and CleanSpace to control the humidity and provide a proper vapor barrier in the crawlspace. The SaniDry will filter the air in the crawlspace and remove the moisture to make the crawlspace less humid.

Push Piers Stabilize Springfield, IL Home

A Springfield, IL homeowner had several common signs of a foundation problem such as stair-step cracking and jammed doors and windows.  He had noticed the cracks years ago, but did nothing about the problem, thinking that his home was done settling.  However, a home is never “done” settling and is constantly shifting and moving.  Because of this, the cracks became larger, and now the homeowner wants to get his foundation problems permanently taken care of.

Woods Basement Systems installed Push Piers by Foundation SupportWorks in order to permanently stabilize the home.  The resident was very pleased with the work done by Woods and now has the peace of mind that comes with having a stable home.

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Springfield, IL

Got a nasty crawl space in need of a makeover?  Berta from Springfield certainly did, and she now has a clean and encapsulated crawl space thanks to CleanSpace.  Before the installation, she would never think of going down in her crawl space.  Now she has a nice storage area that separates her crawl space from the earth and seals water out.

Woods Basement Systems installed the CleanSpace in order to transform the crawl space into a healthy, usable space.  The material is thick and durable, and it will last as long as the home.

Berta was very satisfied with the work that was done and rated Woods a 10 out of 10.  She highly recommends Woods due to their excellent service.
