This basement in Saint Peters, Missouri used to have bowing walls and water seepage. Since Woods installed wall anchors and reopaired the basement wall cracks, the walls are no longer bowing or leaking.
This St. Peters, Missouri home had bowing walls which can lead to wall cracks that allow water to seep into a basement. Woods Basement Systems installed wall anchors to return the walls to their original shape.
Air sealing and attic insulation in the Knee Wall of this St. Peters, MO home included: three inches of spray foam insulation to stop air transfer and achieve an R-18.
Before we arrived, the knee wall was insulated with only a piece of batt insulation---and without proper air sealing, batt insulation in an attic acts very similarly to a filter in a HVAC system...air passes right through it!

This week Christine B had her fall fixed through Woods Basement Systems by having the Geo-lock Wall Anchor installed to keep her wall from beginning to bow further than it already was. She was concerned about her wall in the past and contacted woods basement systems to do a free inspection of it. Woods Basement Systems sent a specialist to inspect it and thy noticed that the wall had a major horizontal crack than look as though someone had attempted to close it but failed and the crack was becoming larger and larger. The wall also seemed to have a new layer of paint which never fixes and wall from bowing or cracking and the hydrostatic pressure behind the wall is going to keep pushing against it.
When the inspection was complete, Christine had decided to have the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System installed to close of the crack and any further cracks from forming in the future. The Wall Anchor will help stabilize the wall to prevent and further movement inward and help to straighten it. Woods Basement System sent a production crew Lead by Forman Jeremy Raby to have the system installed correctly. Once installation was finished, the wall was looking dramatically better than it was to originate and Christine was very satisfied and had peace of mind that her basement wall was not going to come down any time in the future. If you or someone you know has a bowing or tilting wall that needs to be realigned, give us a call her at Woods Basement Systems located in Collinsville, IL.
Bobby of Saint Peters contacted Woods Basement Systems when he realized water was leaking into his basement and causing slight flooding. Representative, Randy Pantano scheduled a free consultation with him for July 1st 2011.
After a thorough assessment, he informed Bobby that his sump pump was outdated and not working efficiently. He also suggested a drainage channel that would direct access water seepage to the new sump pump. Bobby appealed to the WaterGuard drainage system as well as the powerful Zoeller m53 sump pump, he scheduled the appointment for the installation.
On July 19th, foreman Jose Lorenzana and his crew installed the innovative systems in one single day. Bobby is now equipped with a solid sump pump with the ability to pump 2,200 gallons per hour. His new interior drainage system now collects access water and floor seepage and directs it to the new & improved sump pump before it accumulates on his basement floor.
Saint Peters, MO resident, Mary Beth, noticed her garage floor was slowly sinking over the years. After doing some research, she decided to call Woods Basement Systems for a free consultation. On May 26, 2015, system design specialist, Tim Warchol assessed Mary’s issue.
Tim explained to her that the soil underneath her garage wasn’t supporting the weight of the concrete. She could fix this by replacing the entire garage concrete slab, which would be a bit costly and time consuming. Instead, Tim suggested that she does the PolyLevel concrete lifting & leveling process. Mary liked this process because it was faster, more affordable, and best of all, permanent.
Two days later, David Gass and his crew arrived at Mary’s home. The lightweight foam was injected in small holes in various areas throughout her garage floor. In just four hours, the garage floor was back to its original position. Mary is now enjoying her safe & level garage floor and would recommend the PolyLevel process to anyone.
Matthew of Saint Peters, MO noticed the cracks on his basement walls were getting worse. After calling Woods Basement Systems, he scheduled an appointment with system design specialist, Nolan Martz.
After Nolan’s assessment, he explained to Matthew that his walls would continue to crack & eventually start bowing because the foundation soils were causing too much pressure. Nolan informed the homeowner that the Foundation Supportworks Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System would be able to prevent his issue from getting worse. This system appealed to Matthew because it would not use up his basement space, it was fast to install, and it had a 25 year warranty. He scheduled a crew to come the next day.
On November 12, 2013, Foreman Matthew Asher and his crew arrived. In one day, Asher & his crew embedded the anchors outside of his foundation. These anchors are now connected to Matthews’s foundation, providing pressure on his walls & preventing them from buckling. Not only does Matthew have a safe & stable foundation, but he also increased the value of his home.
Matt found his home to be very uncomfortable. He wanted to get this under control so he called Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis. They came to Matt's house and performed a Home Energy Audit. The Certified Building Anaylst looked at the home and found that Matt was losing air through his attic. Dr. Energy Saver air sealed the attic to stop exfiltration of conditioned air into the attic. Then they filled the attic with blow loose-fill cellulose insulation to improve the thermal boundary between the two spaces. Now, thanks to Dr. Energy Saver St. Louis, Matt's home is much more comfortable.
A resident of St. Peters, MO had water damage in her basement due to her home’s foundation settling. The settlement caused large cracks in the foundation walls, which were letting water into the basement when it rained.
Woods Basement Systems closed the cracks by installing Push Piers along the outside perimeter of the wall. They also installed WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump in order to permanently waterproof her basement. Together, the products kept her basement permanently dry.
James and Betty were unhappy with the coldness and their basement, especially in the winter. They planned to live in this house forever, but decided that they didn't want to live with this problem forever. Dr. Energy Saver came to their home and saved their basement by sealing it with spray foam. Now the basement is a perfect temperature year round.
