Before and After Pictures from Waterloo
Waterloo, IL Spray Foam and Attic Insulation Improves Comfort

Waterloo, IL Spray Foam and Attic Insulation Improves Comfort

Before After
Waterloo, IL Spray Foam and Attic Insulation Improves Comfort Waterloo, IL Spray Foam and Attic Insulation Improves Comfort

These Waterloo, IL homeowners were tired of being uncomfortable in their own living room. "No matter what---I want to be comfortable!" They said. Although their condo had a great layout with vaulted ceilings, they could not keep their living room at a comfortable temperature---it did not matter what season it was!

Dr. Energy Saver diagnosed that the knee walls in the vaulted ceiling were poorly insulated using only insulation batts. Batt insulation can act very similarly to a filter in a furnace---it only filters the air transfer, it does not stop air from transferring.

Dr. Energy Saver sealed the area with spray foam insulation, which has air sealed this area AND insulated these knee walls. Finally, these Waterloo, IL homeowners can comfortably enjoy their living room!

Do you have one room that is more uncomfortable than others? Dr. Energy Saver can help you with that!

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

Leaking Waterloo, IL Basement Made Dry With WaterGuard

The couple were tired of constantly having to clean the basement, so they called Woods Basement Systems for help. 

In order to waterproof the space, foreman Jose and his team installed a WaterGuard drainage system. These gutter-like drains are placed under the floor at the base of the leaking walls to catch any and all water and prevent it from reaching the space itself.

CleanSpace and SaniDry Keeps Waterloo, Illinois Crawlspace Dry

Waterloo, Illinois homeowner Larry G. was distraught by his wet, musty crawlspace. Standing water could often be found in his crawlspace. The water and high moisture levels provided the perfect environment for mold growth. System design specialist Adam R. designed a solution to keep the crawlspace dry.

The CleanSpace crawlspace encapsulation system was installed by foreman Josh B. and his team. CleanSpace is an inorganic vapor barrier. It not only keeps the water out, but it does not support mold growth. In addition to CleanSpace, Josh installed SaniDry. SaniDry is an energy efficient dehumidifier. Keeping the humidity low keeps the mold away. Now, Larry's crawlspace is dry and his home is safe and healthy.

WaterGuard Installed in Waterloo, IL

In Waterloo, IL, Shirley W. had water leaking into her basement. This water was threatening her personal belongings and home. Woods Basement Systems was able to install products to help Shirley feel confident in using her basement.

Woods installed WaterGuard to help drain unwanted water out of the basement. WaterGuard is installed in the cement of the flooring against the walls. This allows water to enter the piping and be drained to prevent damages to the home and personal belongings.

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 basement, 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. 

Crawlspace Redone in Waterloo, IL

Shirley W. of Waterloo, IL had climate control issues in her crawlspace. This was causing her energy bill to be high and increased chances of mold and rotting wood. Woods Basement Systems had the perfect products to fix Shirley's issues.

Woods installed CleanSpace to seal off the space and prevent water and moisture from getting in. A drainage mat 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.

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 TripleSafe 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 to the yard. If this line becomes frozen or backed up, IceGuard will prevent the water from receding back into the crawlspace.

PowerBrace System Supports Waterloo, Illinois Foundation

Tim S., Waterloo, Illinois homeowner, discovered that his home's foundation was in questionable condition. The walls began to bow inward as the floors began to sink.

System design specialist Thomas W. designed a solution to make Tim's foundation safe again. The PowerBrace support system was installed by Foreman Jeremy R. PowerBrace can be adjusted over time if needed. 

Now, Tim's foundation is restored to its original position and he can sleep soundly knowing his basement is safe.

PowerBrace™ Installation in Waterloo, IL

Tim S. was experiencing some bowing walls in his finished basement in Waterloo, Illinois. If left untouched, this could have become a major problem for Tim. He called Woods Basement Systems, where Systems Design Specialist Thomas Wittrock came to design a solution based on Tim's long-term needs. The solution was to install PowerBrace™ support braces, which were installed by Foreman Jeremy Raby and his team, to provide the walls with extra support and prevent further bowing. Over time, the PowerBrace™ supports can be adjusted to return the walls to their original vertical positions. Tim will no longer need to worry about his basement walls cracking and bowing in those areas, due to the increased support.
