Jessica kept having issues with water seeping into her basement and causing mold growth. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her issue properly addressed. After inspection, Jessica was offered a waterproofing system to help keep her basement dry, and help prevent future mold growth. CleanSpace Liner was place along the bottom half of the walls to prevent excess moisture and WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement. Once water is collected in the WaterGuard, it is then redirected to a TripleSafe sump to be discharged back out of the home.

There are other ways to fix your concrete without having to have your concrete all ripped up. The experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems would be more than happy to help lift and level your concrete without tearing it apart! A homeowner in Davis, IL contacted us to help fix his concrete issue and we were more than happy to help him out! PolyLevel was used to permanently fix his concrete issue!

PolyLevel does have the same idea as mud-jacking but does not involve hammering up the concrete and no mud whatsoever is involved. Lightweight foam is injected into the concrete slab. While the foam is injected it compresses the soil beneath it as it lifts the concrete up creating a stable base where the fill soil was poorly compacted. It does not shrink or degrade from excessive heat and will not wash out. It is environmentally friendly and made of recycled materials. It will also be a great investment for your home!

Now the homeowner has a stable and safe concrete surface thanks to the MidAmerica Basement Systems Team. If you too are looking to have your concrete fixed and leveled do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems.

Homeowner Ryan had recently purchased his home two weeks ago. The home was built in the 1980’s and has some water issues. Ryan was concerned about the home being unstable. The home has cracks in the wall where the water leaks in. The most important thing to Ryan is to make sure the foundation of his home is safe. He has had professional advice in the past about this problem but the company was not a good fit for him and the problem. The Helical Pier System from Foundation Supportworks will permanently stabilize your home. Rugged steel piers are mechanically “screwed” into the soil using small construction equipment or hand equipment. The piers are installed to appropriate depths and capacities, preventing any future settlement.
