This combination concrete block and poured foundation in Worden, Illinois leaked with almost every rain. The hollow, concrete blocks would fill up with water, and groundwater would seep through at the mortar joints as well as the joint where the block wall rested on the poured wall.

Woods Basement Systems repaired the wall by first drilling small "weep holes" every few feet in the bottom row of concrete block to alleviate the hydrostatic pressure inside and against the block wall. To drain the leaky block wall, the crew fastened the BrightWall basement wall system to the basement walls, draining any wall leaks into the WaterGuard perimeter drainage system—where it could then be pumped out and away from the basement.

The concrete block section of this foundation wall leaked at the transition joint between the block foundation and poured concrete wall.  The block wall also leaked at pipe penetrations and other outlets along the wall.

By installing a perimeter drainage system and a vinyl wall covering to drain wall leaks to a nearby sump pump system, Woods Basement Systems helped make this Worden, Illinois basement brighter, dry, and usable.

The heart of any waterproofing system is the sump pump, because the waterproofing systems is only as good as the pump that ejects the water out and away from the basement.

To keep this Worden, Illinois basement dry all the time, Woods Basement Systems installed the TripleSafe sump pump system that addresses 3 major concerns: What if the primary pump fails?  What if it can't keep up with the flow of water from heavy rain?  What if the power goes out, or a circuit breaker trips?

The TripleSafe consists of a primary and secondary pump—in case one pump fails, the homeowner still has an operating pump—and includes a third, battery backup pumping system.

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.

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

Stabilizing Basement Walls in Worden

Brian was concerned his basement wall might cave in without notice. The home he bought 2 years ago was actually moved in the 1940s, which meant his basement walls were part block and part poured concrete.  Block walls are hollow inside and can fill up with water, and his walls were leaking at the transition between the two foundation types.  The hydrostatic pressure being exerted on the walls had cracked one of the walls in the block section, and the wall was bowing.

Brian hired Woods Basement Systems to install 7 Geo-Lock wall anchors to stabilize the wall and protect against further bowing.  The crew installed earth anchors further beyond the fill soil that was immediately surrounding the home. Driving threaded steel rods through small holes in the basement wall, the crew attached large wall anchors plates to the steel rods and torqued the anchors to tighten the system. Now, Brian's wall is stable and he never has to worry about it caving in.
