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.

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

Cracking in Block Foundation Walls

Foundation walls are generally made one of two ways. One way is to pour concrete walls similarly to how they pour concrete floors. The other method is to build the walls using stone or cinder blocks. 


For homes with block foundation walls, any damage that occurs often occurs along the mortar joints between the blocks, like in this image. In this home in Virden, IL. the pressures from the soil outside expanding due to weather conditions caused the mortar between the blocks to crack and the wall to bow inward. Inward bowing walls can weaken the structure as a whole and can allow water to enter the home and cause further damage. The cracks in this wall were repaired with a joint sealant, but the joint sealant would not support the wall or prevent further bowing. What's worse, the seal would likely break as the wall continued to bow, forcing homeowners to repeat the repairs.


Instead, the homeowners chose to fix the problem right the first time by hiring Woods Basement Systems to install wall anchors to support the bowing wall. Wall anchors work by connecting a plate against the inside of the wall to an anchor buried in stable soil outside with a steel rod. The wall plate is then tightened, creating a pulling force using the rod and anchor. This force will support the wall and, if the anchors are installed in time, will straighten the wall back to its original position. These wall anchors will permanently increase the strength and stability of the foundation wall and will prevent further bowing. 


Now the homeowners can patch the cracks knowing that they won't have to repeat the repairs thanks to the wall anchor system supporting their foundation walls.

Crawlspace Redone in Virden, IL

Samuel L. of Virden, IL was having moisture control issues in his crawlspace before he called Woods Basement Systems. This moisture was threatening Samuel L.'s home with mold and rotting wood. 

Woods came in and installed a drainage matting under CleanSpace. This drainage mat would help drain away any water that may get into the crawlspace. The CleanSpace was used to seal off the space to prevent moisture from getting into the space, helping to keep it dry. 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. Keeping the crawlspace dry is very important because it eliminates the moisture needed to help mold grow.

A SaniDry was installed to filter moisture out of the air in the crawlspace. A SaniDry is a dehumidifier for the space and will help control the humidity. Controlling the humidity of the crawlspace will reduce energy bills and make the home more comfortable because the air that is moving into the house is more controlled.

A sump pump was installed to provide escape for any unwanted water in the space. Water that may still get into the space will be pumped out through a discharge line that leads the yard. If this line becomes frozen or backed up, IceGuard will prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace.
