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

Job Stories From White County, IL
WaterGuard Saves Wet Basement

A Carmi, IL resident was tired of dealing with a wet basement every time it rained for the past 22 years.  The water would come in through cracks in the walls and at the floor joints during heavy rains.  She was concerned about the possibility of mold and wanted a dry basement that she could use for storage.

Woods Basement Systems installed WaterGuard, IceGuard, and TrenchDrain in order to collect all of the water and lead it out and away from the house.  The resident was very pleased with the work that was done by Woods and said they were the most professional crew she has ever worked with.

Moldy Crawlspace Gets Newer Look With CleanSpace

Thanks to CleanSpace and Woods Basement Systems, Amanda is now able to use her clean looking crawlspace for storage, and can rest easy knowing CleanSpace will protect her stored items from getting wet and moldy.

CleanSpace Installed in Carmi, IL

This left it vulnerable to unwanted water, animals, and mold entering and leaving behind an odor that could be smelled within the house. Woods Basement Systems was able to install a CleanSpace Encapsulation system in the crawl space to seal it off from the outside, as well as our SmartSump sump pump and SaniDry dehumidifier to keep the space clean and dry.

Waterproofing in Frontenac, MO Basement

Design specialist Jake S. assessed the situation and solution with the homeowner. Foreman William H. traveled to the home to install a Waterguard drainage system and a CleanSpace Wall System. He also replaced the Zoeller 1/3 hp pump within the existing sump pump.

The Waterguard drainage system is placed above the footing of the basement and is then covered with concrete. It collects and drains any water coming up from the ground to the sump pump before it reaches the basement surface. The CleanSpace Wall System is made of a plastic liner that is placed over the walls. It acts as a vapor barrier and drains any leaks behind it. The Zoeller 1/3 hp pump is the main pump and is responsible for pumping the water most of the time. 

Allen B. no longer has to worry about a wet and leaking basement. He now has a waterproof and dry home.

Radon Mitigation Saves Families Air in Norris City, IL

Norris City, Illinois homeowner Shelly did an at home test kit and the results showed high radon levels in her home. She gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Barry developed a mitigation plan that would work for her home.

The radon mitigation system is a series of pipes that begin in the basement and run to the outside of the home and up past the steep of the home. This release the radon into the outside air where it can dissipate to safe levels. A fan is at the bottom of the pipes to blow the radon up through the piping. 

Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, behind smoking, so lowering levels in your home is a safety must! 

Shelly no longer has to worry about the long term health effects on her family.
