Woods Basement Systems is the authorized Basement Systems, Inc. dealer for central and southeastern Missouri and southern Illinois. They offer free basement waterproofing estimates in the Greater St. Louis area.
Woods Basement Systems prides themselves in using the best waterproofing and foundation repair products for their customers. Such products include:
In 1986, Rick Woods started a basement waterproofing company in Missouri called Basement DeWatering Systems Metro-East, Inc. In 1988, when Rick bought out his partner, the name changed to Woods Waterproofing, Inc. Finally, in 1998, 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 in six countries that provide state-of-the-art basement waterproofing and crawl space moisture control solutions. Only high-integrity companies are recruited into the Basement Systems dealer network.
Although Woods has changed their name, their Federal Tax ID number NEVER changed, so the corporate identity has always remained intact, and most importantly, all contractual warranties have been maintained.
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. Woods Basement Systems is one of the largest basement waterproofing, foundation repair, and foundation piering contractors in Illinois and Missouri, and in 2005, Woods was the world's largest Basement Systems dealer - topping the then existing 240 dealers in six countries!
Woods Basement Systems proudly serves St. Louis, Springfield, Champaign, Mount Vernon, Belleville, Carbondale, Mount Carmel, Alton, Jefferson City, Columbia, and areas nearby in IL as well as MO.
David G. of Ridge Farm, Illinois discovered that his home's basement was holding water after heavy rain showers. He did not want to have to continuously pump out the water, so he called Woods Basement Systems for assistance.
Design specialist Gregory B. assessed the situation and decided that the best option was to install a TripleSafe sump pump and a Waterguard drainage system. Foreman Mason S. then headed to the home to get the job started.
The Waterguard drainage system, pictured above, was placed above the footing of the basement. It collects any water coming up from the ground before it reaches the basement surface. It then drains the water to the sump pump.
David G. no longer has to worry about water entering his home's basement. He now has a dry and waterproof home.
After the snow melted outside, this basement experienced water leaks inside. Without any means of waterproofing inside, water damaged developed on the floor and walls. Team Woods provided protection by installing a new TripleSafe sump pump system with WaterGuard drains to keep water out of the basement for good.
This Westville, Illinois sump pump was outdated and inefficient. Woods Basement Systems installed a new sump pump with a battery backup. The battery backup means that even if the power goes out during a storm the sump pump will continue to run and keep water from filling the basement. Woods Basement Systems also offers several other waterproofing options to ensure that water nevers makes it inside the home.
This homeowner was concerned about poor drainage causing water damage in their home. Design Specialist Greg B. from Woods Basement Systems inspected the area and recommended the ideal solution for their waterproofing problems.
Foreman Josh B. and his team installed WaterGuard drains to remove water from the home. WaterGuard is a French drain system that's installed under the floor slab for effective drainage without clogs or an unsightly appearance.
To ensure professional installation and superior service we carefully created an international network of over 350 trusted basement contractors.
