Melissa F. of Irvington, IL was having major problems with her crawlspace. Every time it rained, water got into her crawlspace. It was causing mold to grow on the walls of the crawlspace and the wood beams above the crawlspace were starting to rot. The floors above the crawlspace were sagging due to the beams rotting as well as settling of the columns that held up the beams.

The SaniDry dehumidifier was installed on the inside of the crawlspace. It prevents mold, rot and musty smells in the crawlspace by keeping the relative humidity low within the crawlspace.

Addieville, Illinois resident Judith O. noticed that one of her basement walls was cracked and slightly bowing in. She was very concerned about the problem getting worse and possibly leading to collapse. Not wanting to let the problem progress any further, Judith gave Woods Basement Systems a call.
In order to right and support the bowing wall, Bradley P., foreman, and his team installed 10 GeoLock wall anchors. These supports work by connecting a steel rod and anchor that is extended far out into the home's surrounding firmer soil to a plate that is affixed to the interior surface of the wall, effectively pulling the wall outward. Judith's wall won't be moving any time soon!
Stacey of Nashville, Illinois needed a solution to prevent her basement walls from cracking. Over time the cracks had become more profound, and she knew that the safety of her home was at risk. Stacey reached out to Woods Basement Systems and had a specialist look over the walls to see what an optimal solution would be.
The specialist recommended installing push piers into the footing of the basement walls to lift and stabilize the walls back into place. Woods' push piers are made out of durable, galvanized steel that is pushed into the footing of the basement, and they are designed to lock and lift the settled foundation. With the help of push piers, Stacey doesn't have to fear about the safety of her basement again!
Cissy of Nashville, Illinois need help dealing with her wet dirt-floor crawl space. Over time, the moisture in the space had led to mold growth and caused several sections of flooring to sag and slope. She needed to get the problem taken care of professionally, so she called the experts at Woods Basement Systems.
Foreman Brett and his team waterproofed the crawl space by installing a CleanSpace encapsulation system throughout the entirety of the space. This inorganic vapor barrier is sealed around all edges of the crawl space, keeping out all moisture and debris. Cissy no longer needs to worry about water in her crawl space.
Homeowner Curtis of Hoyleton, Illinois was fed up with his basement constantly leaking during periods of rain. Water would regularly stream out of cracks in his walls and pool on the floor. This was particularly bothersome because he used the basement for food storage. He wanted the problem taken care of once and for all, so he called Woods Basement Systems.
A Woods team, led by foreman Kevin, began waterproofing the space by installing WaterGuard drains underneath the floor at the base of the walls. These gutter-like drains catch all leaks coming down the walls well before they're able to make it onto the floor. To finish, a CleanSpace vapor barrier was put in place over a large portion of the walls to prevent mold growth and seal out moisture. Curtis's basement is now totally dry!
Homeowner, Cissy, from Nashville, Illinois wanted to update her crawl space after years of avoiding the area. The current condition of her crawl space was musty, moldy, and dirty. To solve this issue, Woods Basement Systems' system design specialist, Luke K., designed a plan using a CleanSpace encapsulation system to clean up and protect the crawl space.
A CleanSpace encapsulation system was used because this vapor barrier system will seal out outside elements like water, debris, and critters. The crawl space is the most susceptible area for harmful outer elements to enter and cause trouble. By sealing this system on the walls and floor, the crawl space will be protected and will maintain a fresh and clean look. This new system was installed by foreman, Brett J., and his team of installers. Cissy now isn't afraid of her basement and can utilize the space for extra storage!
Addieville, Illinois homeowner Valroy B. was having issues with moisture in his basement. Any time it rained for any extended period of time, water would make its way onto the floor. This required constant cleanup, and Valroy was sick and tired of it.
In order to waterproof the space, a Woods Basement Systems team began by installing an under-floor WaterGuard drainage system at the foot of the leaking walls to catch any and all water. After this, a TripleSafe sump system was put in place to remove all water from the home. Valroy's home is now totally protected from water and he couldn't be happier!
Cole of Addieville, Illinois wanted to waterproof his basement after noticing water damage on his walls and floor. Cole worked with system design specialist, Luke K., who walked Cole through a plan to keep his basement safe and dry. Luke recommended installing a sump pump with a drainage system to keep water outside.
A TwinPack sump pump was installed along with WaterGuard drains by foreman, Tyler S., and his crew. This duo will collect and discard of any water that leaks inside. With a dry basement, this homeowner won't have to worry about the safety of his basement for many years to come.
Christine S. of Irvington, IL. needed a new sump pump in her basement, but she didn't want to tear up her carpet to accomodate one.
Dave P. was not only able to install a sump pump for her, but he was able to hide it away beneath the carpet like Christine wished. The UltraSump that Dave installed features a sturdy sump liner and lid, so the carpet is not dangling dangerously over an open pit of water. In fact, the UltraSump lid is water-tight, so no water or water vapor can escape to damage the carpet above.
Christine S. now has a powerful sump pump system with minimal disruption or danger to her carpet.

Homeowner Jacob P. of Okawville was concerned about the pools of water he was finding in his basement after several heavy rains this spring. His basement walls were a mixture of poured concrete and exposed brick. Brick basement walls are not commonly seen today because of the risk of water damage. Because the brick is stacked on top of each other with air bubbles and spots where water can flow through easily. Jacob decided to call Woods Basement Systems to find a solution to waterproof his basement once and for all.
Our foremen Tyler Sears and his team came out to the Okawville home to install our patented WaterGuard system. WaterGuard is engineered specifically to be an efficient, long-lasting interior perimeter basement waterproofing system.

Uninsulated crawlspaces can increase the energy costs of the home substantially. Crawlspaces will allow unconditioned outside air to enter below the home. This outside air will then rise through the home and make the living spaces less comfortable.
Many crawlspaces can't be insulated properly because they are not protected from water leaks and vapor, but those that are should be insulated. Insulating the crawlspace includes blocking any windows and adding insulation to the gaps between the floor joists that make up the ceiling of the crawlspace.
Usually, spray foam insulation is used in these areas as it is difficult to shape other forms of insulation to the space. In this home in Urbana, IL. sealed blocks of insulation are installed and spray foam is used as a supplement to block the cracks and offer total insulation.
Once the crawlspace is totally insulated, uncomfortable outside air won't be able to enter the home from below. This will help save the homeowner on energy costs related to heating and cooling their home, making the cost of insulating a small investment with huge payoffs.
Homeowner Patricia N. of Affton, Missouri had been dealing with rainwater problems in her home for as long as she could remember. With water entering through the gap where the floor meets the wall, she decided to finally waterproof her basement once and for all. She called Woods Basement Systems to find the perfect solution for her home.
Our foreman Clay Lasiter and his team sent out to the Affton, Missouri home to install our WaterGuard system. WaterGuard is engineered to be an efficient, long-lasting interior perimeter basement waterproofing system. The big difference is that the WaterGuard sits on-top of the footing, instead of the alongside of it. This is important because it keeps the wet dirt (commonly mud) from getting into the drain because the drain does not sit in the mud. After the WaterGuard is installed, Patricia does not need to worry about leaking and water in her basement ever again.
