Effective Concrete Leveling & Concrete Sealing

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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

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

Radon Mitigation Installed in Anna, IL

Joanne, a homeowner in Anna, IL, has had work done by Woods Basement Systems before. When she was concerned there may be high radon levels in her home she knew just who to call. System Design Specialist Colin M. set up a radon test kit in her home, then developed the Radon Mitigation plan. 

Foreman Michael P. and his crew installed the Radon Mitigation System through Joanne's home. Radon is naturally released from the soil around us. It is also the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking. Outside radon is spread out through the moving air so it is not in harmful levels. Sometimes in our homes, because there is little air for it to disperse too, radon levels can build up. This is individual to homes, a neighbor testing low for radon does not mean your home is also low.

Radon Mitigation works by giving the air coming through the soil beneath the home a place to go. The Stack Effect pulls the air up through the house. By installing a set a pipes from the basement floor and redirecting them outside the house and to a safe area at the top of the home, we can change the path and disperse the radon. A fan is used to pull the high radon air into the piping system. 

Joanne now knows her home is at safe levels so she can breath easy.
