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
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

No Water Damage in Wood River, IL Basement Thanks to WaterGuard Drains

This Wood River, Illinois basement was in need of waterproofing to protect the basement against water damage. Terry reached out to Woods Basement Systems to work with a professional to waterproof his basement. System design specialist, Scott R., worked with Terry to find a solution that would protect this Wood River, Illinois basement. 

WaterGuard drains were used in this basement to collect and direct pesky water leaks towards the home's sump pump system. These drains were installed in the footing of the basement walls to prevent the system from clogging and because most leaks seep in where the walls met the flooring. Foreman, Miguel O., installed this drainage system into the flooring with the help of his crew of installers. Thanks to the leadership of Scott and Miguel, this basement is now safe and protected from water damage.

Unevenly Settled Sidewalk Lifted With PolyLevel In Wood River, IL

Linda B. of Wood River, IL noticed that the concrete sidewalk leading to her home was sinking unevenly and causing cracks. This occurs naturally as the result of the weight of the concrete in addition to an accumulation of the weight of what the concrete is responsible for holding up.

Basement Waterproofing System installed in Wood River, IL

It’s very common for water to leak into the basement through the seam where the foundation floors and walls meet. In Steve Y.’s case, it was a lot of water coming into the basement of his Wood River, IL home and it was staining and damaging his walls and belongings. He didn’t want to worry about rain in the forecast anymore so he called Woods Basement Systems. Design Specialist Brandon B. assessed the basement and determined a basement waterproofing system would be the best solution.

Woods installed WaterGuard under the concrete floors along the perimeter of the basement. It’s a drainage system that is situated on top of the footing of the home so it won’t become clogged with mud as it collects water from the foundation walls and floors of the basement and drains it to the sump pump for removal.

The TripeSafe was installed to pump the unwanted water out and away from the basement through its discharge lines. The TripleSafe contains two high powered cast iron pumps and a battery back up pump that can pump up to 11,000 gallons on a charge, so the basement is protected from during severe weather and power outages.

IceGuards were installed on the discharge lines on the exterior of the home. IceGuards have slotted openings for water to escape into the yard if the lines become frozen or clogged, preventing it from getting back into the basement.

Steve Y. no longer worries about the weather forecast because he knows his basement will remain dry even in downpours.

Flooded Garage in Wood River, IL

A resident of Wood River, Illinois was tired of dealing with the constant water flow into his garage every time it rained.  After deciding to put his house on the market, he knew he had to solve the issue before anyone would purchase his home.  He gave Woods Basement Systems a call to come and see what could be done about the problem.

Woods sent out a crew to inspect the area and created a proposal for the resident.  Woods suggested installing a SuperSump sump pump and redoing the TrenchDrain in the garage.  The resident agreed that purchasing those products would increase the value of his home and chose to go through with the installations.

The SuperSump worked nicely in the garage because it resisted clogging and could pump up to ½” solids.  The customer was very pleased with the effectiveness and reliability of the SuperSump and gave Woods a 10 out of 10 rating for keeping his garage dry.

Vicinity of in Wood River
Need to fix my basement so that it is not an eye sore. I would like to sell the house in the future and would like to make repairs. Concrete Basement walls are flaking and chipping off. It appears that the wall is ribbed cinder block and because of leaking someone covered the cinder block with Portland cement to produce a smooth service,however, the Portland cement is flaking and chipping away from the cinder block due to moisture getting between the cinder block and cement. The basement does leak in some places. I need to get a quote for how much it would cost to repair the walls and floor so that it is presentable to a potential buyer.

We are considering buying this house that we are currently renting, but the basement leaks in a certain area and that is a problem due to future home improvements. I am pretty sure that it is coming up from either the the floor or somewhere near the stairs where the steps meet the ground.
