Woods Basement Systems is the authorized CleanSpace dealer serving central and southeastern Missouri and southern Illinois. They offer Free Crawl Space Estimates in the Greater St. Louis area using the CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System.

In 1986 Rick Woods started a waterproofing company called Basement DeWatering Systems Metro-East, Inc. In 1988, Rick changed the name to Woods Waterproofing, Inc. Finally in 1998, as the premier waterproofing company in Missouri and Illinois, Woods was recruited to be the Basement Systems dealership for the greater St. Louis, Missouri and Southern Illinois areas, and the company name was changed to Woods Basement Systems, Inc.

There are currently more than 300 Basement Systems dealers that provide the CleanSpace crawl space moisture control solution.

Although Woods has changed their name, their Federal Tax ID number didn't change, keeping the corporate identity intact, and most importantly, all contractual warranties have been maintained.

Awards that Woods Basement Systems has won include:

  • Collinsville Chamber of Commerce - 15th Anniversary of Membership
  • Basement Systems Top 10 Dealer Award 1010-2011
  • Basement Systems #1 Dealer Award 2004-2005
  • Central Illinois BBB - TORCH AWARD for Marketplace Ethics 2005

  • Basement Systems 300,000 Foot Club

Rick’s wife Anna Lee, son Wayne, daughter-in-law Susanne, daughter Susan, son-in-law Tim, and cousin Chris Blickenstaff are all management-level employees of Woods Basement Systems. Rick's seven grandchildren, Alli, Drew, Nick, Jack, twins Sophie & Lily, and Rachel  are the real bosses behind the operation.

Woods Basement Systems is one of the largest Illinois, and Missouri Crawl Space Contractors, offering expert basement waterproofing, foundation repair, and foundation piering services in Illinois and Missouri. In 2005, Woods was the world’s largest Basement Systems dealer – topping the then existing 240 dealers.
