Before and After Pictures from Tolono
Tolono, IL Crawl Space Now Dry

Tolono, IL Crawl Space Now Dry

Tolono, IL Crawl Space Now Dry Tolono, IL Crawl Space Now Dry

Scott, a Tolono, Illinois homeowner,  was worried about standing water in his crawl space. He gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Greg B. developed a plan to get his crawl space sealed and dry. 

Foreman James L. and his crew installed the crawl space system of CleanSpace with drainage matting, a SmartSump sump pump with IceGuard and Lawnscape Well. 

The core of this system is the CleanSpace with drainage matting is an inorganic, anti-microbial vapor barrier. It is designed to catch the water vapor from the dirt and that comes through the porous walls. The drainage matting then provides a path to redirect the collected vapor to the sump pump. It also will fight mold by cutting of the food source for the spores. 

The SmartSump sump pump is the perfect size for a crawl space. It pumps any collected water from the basement through a discharge line away from the home. 

The IceGuard on the discharge line gives a release if the line becomes clogged or freezes. The Lawnscape Outlet goes at the end of the discharge line. It is designed to blend into the grass around it and lower risk of trip injury or landscaping problems. 

Removing the standing water is essential to getting healthy air in the home. It will also protect the woods and other surfaces throughout the crawl space.  Scott now has a safe and dry crawl space he can be proud of.

In Tolono, Illinois homeowners Jon and Aimee E. wanted a solution to their damp and smelly crawlspace. Like many other homeowners, they didn’t have much insulation in their crawlspace, causing damp and musty air in from the exposed earth to enter their crawlspace, and eventually their home. Unsure of what to do, they called Woods Basement Systems to find the perfect solution to their crawlspace problem.

We sent our foremen Justin Gunn and his team out to their home to seal their crawlspace from the earth, using several of our products including UltraSump, CleanSpace, and Vent Covers. Once the crawlspace is completely sealed, these homeowners will have a dry, clean space to store items and not have to worry about their home smelling like their crawlspace.

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
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways
