Professional, Certified Waterproofers

Water leaking into basements is a problem that has troubled homeowners for more than 100 years. Water leaks into the basement through the walls, floors, and joints between them -- which is one reason why basements are notoriously damp, humid spaces.

Through years of research, Basement Systems, Inc. has developed the most effective and long-term solutions for wet basements. Their products have been solving the problem of turning wet basements into dry basements in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom since 1987.

    Pam S. of Davenport, IA

    Customer Testimonial

              Pam S. has lived in the same house for 35 years, and over the course of all these years, she has dealt with water problems in the basement. She would often come home to a wet basement that she needed to mop and dry. Basement flooding is a common occurrence in the area where she lives, so she assumed that this was just the way things were supposed to be, and that her basement was beyond help. That was until she heard about MidAmerica Basement Systems and decided to call them for help. After the inspection and estimate, she chose to have a full perimeter WaterGuard internal drainage system installed and a powerful sump pump system, that includes a battery operated backup pump. Pam is particularly excited about this new sump pump system. With her old sump pump, every time she had a power outage, she found herself removing water out of her basement with buckets. The new sump pump system gives her the peace of mind of knowing that when the power goes out, the battery backup will kick in and keep her basement dry. With a dry, flood-protected basement Pam felt comfortable enough to reclaim her basement as usable space and had MidAmerica Basement Systems install ThermalDry tiles on the basement floor, and ZenWall insulated panels on the wall. Her basement now is dry, healthy, comfortable... and looks great, too! She was happy to invite her neighbors and show off her new basement! You don't have to live with a leaky, moldy or flooded basement in Illinois and Iowa. Call MidAmerica Basement Systems today for a free estimate! We proudly serve Quad Cities, Cedar Rapids, Peoria, Davenport and surrounding areas!

    Bob V. of Davenport, IA

    Customer Testimonial

              Bob V. says he can't praise MidAmerica Basement Systems enough for the excellent job they did in his basement. His two main concerns were water intrusion and mold problems, and MidAmerica not only solved these issues, but they also helped Bob V. to reclaim his basement as additional living space, turning it into a beautiful, healthy family room! Bob was pleased with the entire process. The inspection was thorough, the sales process was informative and there were no pushy sales tactics. Bob got to see on the computer what his basement was going to look like once the job was finished. The crews that installed the systems were professional, punctual, and very respectful of the home and its inhabitants. A basement is an entire floor's worth of space that doesn't need to look and feel like a dungeon. With the help of certified professionals with the proper waterproofing and finishing materials, it can be transformed into any type of room you choose.

              Stanley and Becky C.'s home had very leaky basement walls. Water was seeping through the concrete, soaking the carpet, and causing mold and odor problems. They looked at several options to waterproof their basement before opting for MidAmerica Basement Systems. According to Becky, MidAmerica was the company that had the perfect solution to their situation.

They were impressed with the professionalism of the working crew, and how they performed the job without disrupting their home and yard, cleaning up after themselves each day. "You wouldn't even know they were here!," says Becky. The couple is also very happy with the fact that MidAmerica Basement Systems backs their waterproofing products with a transferable lifetime warranty.

Negative-side Sealant

This involves "painting" the leaking basement walls and floors with a waterproof coating of cement that's meant to seal out the moisture.

It applies directly to the concrete's surface with a brush or roller and is often applied when a homeowner is preparing for basement finishing.

Exterior Excavation

This involves digging out the entire perimeter of the basement, installing a new drain, and possibly adding a waterproof coating on the walls.

This type of installation has been used for many decades—a drain of this type is generally installed when the home is built.

Interior Baseboard System

Installs on top of the basement floor with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects basement water and sends it to a sump pump system.

No jackhammering is required, and the installation is safe for a monolithic basement floor.

Interior Subfloor Drain

Installs underneath the basement floor, with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects basement water and sends it to a sump pump system.

The system is easy to service, and it can collect water leaking from the walls or windows as well.
