CleanSpace reduced the amount of humidity that was in this crawl space and kept it looking clean and brand new.  CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner, similar to a pool liner, that is fitted into a crawl space to completely seal a home from the dirt floor below.  It is puncture and tear resistance, and is incredible durable.  It also includes an antimicrobial additive called "UltraFresh" manufactured into the material to prevent mold growth.  The liner is sealed around obstructions such as the Crawl Space support we see in the picture here.  The crawl space is now a clean dry space ready to be used for storage!

Woodlawn, IL residents Warren and Joyce were interested in waterproofing their basement because the water was leaking into it when it rained. System Design Specialist Jake M. was able to help! By installing a WaterGuard, groundwater and leaks could be stopped at the floor and wall joint. Underneath Production Manager Frankie D., Foreman Robert D. and his crew installed this clog-proof system. In these photos, you can see how the WaterGuard leads directly to the sump pump, allowing water to be pumped out of the basement. Once it is laid properly, it is covered up with concrete, allowing it to blend back in with the rest of the floor. Now Warren and Joyce can have peace of mind that their basement is dry and safe!

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!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors and Waterproofing in Woodlawn, IL

Woodlawn, Illinois homeowners Ross and Susann have a concrete block foundation that had some cracks and leaks. They gave Woods Basement Systems a call and System Design Specialist Luke K. developed a plan for them. 

Foreman Jeremy and his crew installed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchors. The Wall Anchors will use the weight of the earth as resistance to close up the gaps and straighten the wall. 

They then installed WaterGuard and CleanSpace to take care of any remaining water that finds its way in. 

Ross and Susann now have a basement that is safe, stable, and dry. 

Drying out a Crawl Space in Woodlawn, IL

Mike was having issues with his crawl space.  He noticed that it was extra humid and wanted this problem to be corrected immediately before it did any further damage to his home.  He called Woods Basement Systems and had a Systems Design Specialist tell him what the issue was and how to properly correct it.  Mike found that CleanSpace, SaniDry, LawnScape, IceGuard, Smart Sump, Smart Pipe, Vent Covers, and an EverLast door would be the best options to make sure his crawlspace stays dry all year around.  So he got all of them and now his house is much healthier.
