Our basement waterproofing system comes with a transferable lifetime warranty. 

If you want to finish your basement we offer attractive basement remodeling options using patented materials. Our basement finishing products are inorganic and waterproof. This means that you won't need to tear the basement when a pipe bursts like you would with your standard contractor.  

Foundation Repair & Concrete Lifting

Our expert team of foundation specialists will provide a free inspection of your home and explain the problem as well as how to fix it. We fix bowing & cracked walls, uneven floors and more. The foundation products we use have a 25-year warranty. 

Common warning signs of foundation problems:

If the problem is your concrete driveway, sidewalk or patio, we will lift and level the concrete using PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is a polyurethane foam we inject underneath the slab. The foam expands lifting the slab up to a level position. PolyLEVEL is a better option than mudslurry which most contractors use because it takes only 15 minutes to install, weighing a remarkable 2 pounds, compared to the 100 pounds of mudslurry that most contractors would use. It provides a permanent solution to your concrete problems and solves the safety hazard of having an uneven walkway or patio.

Job Stories From Saint Charles, MO
Leaking, Sinking St. Charles, MO Basement Fixed With Push Piers

Melaney of St. Charles, Missouri had large of amounts of water seeping into her basement through the seem where the floor meets the wall. This, along with some other issues on the exterior of the home like a cracking porch, led her to believe that her foundation was sinking. Wanting to get a professional opinion, Melaney called Woods Basement Systems.

Thomas, design specialist, visited the home and determined that the foundation was, in fact, the cause of the water issues in Melaney's basement. In order to fix the issue, a Woods team installed several Low-Profile Push Piers deep under the basement floor to raise the foundation. These galvanized steel beams are incredibly strong and will remain in place to provide support for the life of the structure. 

Cracked, Bowing Basement Wall In St. Charles, MO Righted With GeoLock Supports

Trisha of St. Charles, Missouri noticed that one of her basement walls was cracking and slightly bowing. Knowing the problem would only get worse if it wasn't addressed, she gave Woods Basement Systems a call.

In order to level and support the damaged wall, foreman Kevin and his team installed three GeoLock wall anchors. GeoLock supports work by connecting an anchor buried several feet away from the home in firmer soil to a steel plate on the interior surface of the wall. The supports effectively pull the wall outward over time, preventing any chance of additional bowing. 

Leaking Finished Basement In St. Charles, MO Made Dry With WaterGuard

After ripping out the drywall and tearing up the carpet, foreman Malik and his team waterproofed the home by installing WaterGuard, a gutter-like system that is placed underneath the floor at the base of the walls to catch any leaks before they can make it into the space. The system was then connected to the home's existing sump pump so the water could be piped out of the home. These costly repairs and replacements could have been avoided altogether had Chris waterproofed his basement before finishing it!

Crawl Space Flooding in St. Charles, MO

Crawl Space Flooding

This week Irene had her crawlspace flooded with water and needed it the water gone as soon as possible.  She also wanted to stop the water flow at its source. The problem was that water was coming in from under the home and getting in through footers and flooding the entire basement.  In turn, this water made it damp and humid, which is the perfect environment for mold to colonize.  Woods Basement Systems came out to evaluate her concerns and see how they could correct the situation. Irene purchased the SmartPump System, the SmartPipe System, the SaniDry XP System as well as the CleanSpace wall coverings to insure that everything would be fixed the proper way once and for all. With all of these systems working together, there was no way water was going to be a concern for her anymore.  The SumpPump would get the water out and the SmartPipe would catch any water coming through the dirt floor.

Now production had to begin, first a hole was dug out and the SmartPump System was placed inside and turned up so that all the water in the basement was pumped out.  Originally the water collected all around the basement, not a trench was dug where the SmartPipe would lie in order to catch any water coming through the dirt floor.  All exteriors lines for the SmartPump were then connected and lead outside of the home. Now that the two main systems where placed and ready to go, the CleanSpace wall covering was placed over the top floor which made it brighter and waterproof. With the CleanSpace done, the last thing to do was to suck out the humid air with the SaniDry System and prevent mold growth.  Irene was very pleased on how her crawlspace turned out and how dry is has become from the original point.  If you or someone you know is looking to have their crawlspace inspected give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.

Uneven Driveway

PolyLevel Driveway

This week Jeremiah had his driveway PolyLeveled so that it would be flat once. He wanted all the cracked or uneven parts of his driveway to be fixed. Woods Basement Systems had talked with Jeremiah about his concerns and what actions to take in order to correct the problem.  Woods gave their professional opinion on how to fix the problem and Jeremiah was sold.

You might be wondering, what is PolyLEVEL? Well, PolyLEVEL is the approach to repairing sinking concrete slabs by combing the concept of mud jacking with that of the most advanced technology. Instead of using a mixture of mud and cement to raise your slab, PolyLEVEL utilizes high-density polyurethane specially engineered for all driveway issues.  It is also lighter allowing Woods to raise the slab without putting a high bearing load on it like mud jacking. The PolyLEVEL foam is also made from recycled materials and takes only one day to install.  This material is so strong that a train to drive over the top of it and wouldn’t even be effected by its load. After only five minutes of installation, you can then drive or walk on your new raised driveway.

When Woods comes out to begin, the first thing they do is drill a penny size hole of 5/8 of an inch in the concrete. We then slowly shoot the polyurethane material which foams up and seals the cracks and holes under the surface.  This then makes everything level and smooth. Next, Woods accurately lifts each slab piece to their specified heights. Once it is all level Woods seals up the holes that were drilled and waits five minutes for it to set up and harden. Then it’s ready to go.

Coming to a close, Jeremiah’s driveway is now flat. He is very pleased with how quick it took and how the finished driveway is looking when we walks on it. If you know someone or are interested in having your driveway, sidewalk or patio inspected for PolyLEVEL, give us a call here at Woods Basement Systems, your leading Basement Company and Waterproofing.  For more specifics on PolyLevel read more here.

Complete Protection Equals Complete Dryness

     William and Judy of St. Charles, Missouri needed basement waterproofing and foundation repairs. They contacted Woods Basement Systems in June 2013 and met with friendly, informative professionals. After a free estimate and a helpful proposal, William hired Woods to keep the basement dry and fix the basement walls.

     Woods installed the WaterGuard system and a TripleSafe sump pump system. The CleanPump stands (included with the TripleSafe) ensure William and Judy’s new sump pumps rest above any mud that could wash into any sump liner, and the ever-vigilant WaterWatch alarm system will sound in the event of mechanical failure or a plumbing leak. Two IceGuards were installed on the exterior discharge lines to prevent flooding due to frozen pipes, and their new LawnScape outlet blends into the lawn while providing a clean exit for water to discharge.

     With all the basement and foundation protection both inside and outside the house, William and Judy can now sleep soundly in even the most wicked of storms!
