Wood and drywall are both organic, and when used in a basement, are extremely susceptible to moisture and mold growth.  Having a vapor barrier installed on the basement floor is a good idea unless the top of it is wood.  Plumbing leaks downstairs or falling into the basement from upstairs will cause a serious problem. Our ThermalDry® basement flooring is made of inorganic materials and will not allow mold to grow in the event that there is a leak in the basement. This Troy, Illinois basement is now protected and mold-free!

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

Job Stories From Troy, IL
Leaking Troy, IL Basement Made Dry With WaterGuard And TwinPack

Stanley D. of Troy, Illinois was sick and tired of dealing with moisture in his basement. Anytime it rained, water would make its way into the basement through cracks in the walls. This required constant cleanup and made it nearly impossible to make effective use of the space. All of this considered, Stanley decided to call Woods Basement Systems.

In order to waterproof Stanley's basement, foreman Malik and his team began by installing a WaterGuard drainage system. These gutter-like drains are placed underneath the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch any and all water before it reaches the space itself. After this, a TwinPack sump pump was put in place to remove all of the water caught by the WaterGuard system from the home.

Troy, IL Basement Waterproofing

Unleveled Concrete in Troy, IL

Many homeowners do not know why their concrete has become unleveled and cracked. The combined weight of the concrete and what it supports causes the concrete to settle. Rather than using a mud and concrete mixture like other repair options, this system uses a high-density injection foam to raise the concrete slab back to its original position. In 4 steps, the installation is done and the concrete is no longer cracked or unleveled. The PolyLEVEL also has the quickest cure time. In just 15 minutes, the concrete can be driven or walked on.

After the installation is done, it can hold more than 60,000 pounds. 

Because of Woods Basement System, Al B. no longer has any worries about the safety and security of his home

Karen K. of Troy, Illinois noticed that her home's basement was collecting water. She did not want to have to clean up a mess after every heavy rain storm, so she called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Finished Basement Waterproofed in Troy, IL

Shirley and Warren T. had a cozy finished basement. Unfortunately, they hadn’t waterproofed before they finished their basement and heavy downpours caused hidden leaks behind the finished walls. Their carpets were soaked and stained, taking hours to dry out. The wood paneling on the bottom half of their finished walls was irreparably water damaged so they called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Chris T. inspected the basement and found the best solution would be a waterproofing system.

Woods installed the WaterGuard drainage system under the cement floors along the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard sits on top of the concrete footing of the home, unlike other drainage systems that are notorious for clogging. It will remain free of mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors and draining it away to the sump pump.

The TripleSafe was installed to accept the water from the WaterGuard and pump it out and away from the basement. The TripleSafe contains a primary, a secondary and a battery back up pump which will protect the basement from even severe weather and power outages.

On the exterior of the home, IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines. IceGuards are designed with slotted openings that allow water to escape into the yard in the event that the discharge lines become frozen during cold winter months. This prevents the water being pumped out of the basement from getting back in.

The SaniDry dehumidifier was installed, as well. The SaniDry is an energy efficient but powerful dehumidifier that can remove up to 109 pints of the water from basement air per day. It keeps the relative humidity low to prevent mold growth and musty smells.

Shirley and Warren T. are thrilled that they can enjoy their cozy finished basement again without worries of water damage because their basement will stay dry.

Crawlspace Encapsulated in Troy, IL

Jill R. had just bought a home in Troy, IL that had a damp crawlspace. The wet crawlspace provided a perfect environment to foster mold growth. The exposed dirt floors turned to mud in a downpour which made the space unusable for storage. Water from the crawlspace also had a tendency to seep into the basement through the crawlspace opening so Jill called Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate. Design Specialist Jake S. inspected the crawlspace and determined a crawlspace encapsulation system would be the best solution.

Woods installed CleanSpace over the foundation walls and dirt floors of the crawlspace. CleanSpace is a thick and durable plastic moisture barrier that is resistant to mold growth. It prevents moisture from entering into the crawlspace. It’s bright white appearance also maximizes the available light in the crawlspace and gives it a much cleaner appearance.

Under the CleanSpace, Woods installed drainage matting. Drainage matting has a dimpled design which provides channels for moisture entering the crawlspace to disperse.

Within the encapsulated crawlspace, Woods installed the SaniDry dehumidifier. The SaniDry is as energy efficient as small store-bought dehumidifiers but is far more effective at removing water from the crawlspace air: up to 109 pints per day. It keeps relative humidity low to prevent mold growth and musty smells in the crawlspace.

Jill R. is happy that she can now use the crawlspace in her new home for storage and that she doesn’t have to worry about water getting into her basement from her crawlspace.

CleanSpace was installed on the basement walls to provide protection to the home. CleanSpace sealed off the basement to keep water out but also guided the water that got in to the WaterGuard. 

Woods installed a discharge line that was attached to a Tripe Safe sump pump. This sump pump would pump the water in the basement through the discharge line. The discharge line leads the water into the yard where it is drained. The line can become frozen or clogged in some situations. In order to prevent the water from backing up into the basement, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard provides an escape route for the water so that it does not back up into the basement.

Woods also installed CleanSpace to seal off the space and prevent water and moisture from getting in. A drainage matt was installed under the CleanSpace to drain away any unwanted water that may be standing in the crawlspace. Vent covers were also installed for additional sealing. These covers create an air tight seal and do not allow water or moisture into the crawlspace.

Finally, a TripleSafe sump pump was installed to evacuate unwanted water. The sump pump will pump the water out through a discharge line that leads the water to the yard. This line can become clogged or frozen at times, in order to prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace, Woods installed IceGuard. IceGuard is installed on the discharge line next to the house and allows water to escape through it when it is necessary. 

WaterGuard, TripleSafe and IceGuard Installed in Troy, Illinois

Mike and Tracan L. of Troy, Illinois were troubled by the water leaking into their basement where the floor meets the wall. The water posed a risk to their valuables and provided the perfect environment for mold growth.
