Jim and Dorothy wanted the discharge line from their sump pump extended further away from the house. MidAmerica Basement Systems came out and extended the discharge line to the requested length and made it look like we weren’t ever there. Jim and Dorothy are very happy with the finished product, as they do not need to worry about it any longer.
The homeowners of this basement in Morton were troubled by the integrity of their foundation walls. The team permanently stabilized them with a Wall Anchor system and now the homeowners have stable and safe walls!
Vicki was having issues with water seeping into her basement after heavy rains. She also had issues with her basement drain backing up, preventing water from flowing out of her basement. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have the problem resolved and finally have a dry basement. Mike has proposed installing a TripleSafe sump to account for the large amounts of water that would enter the basement during rains. LateralDrains were than installed from the basemen drain to the pump to prevent future back-ups. For the rest of the basement, WaterGuard was installed to collect and redirect the seeping water to the TripleSafe to be discharged back out of the home. Vicki now has a dry, and reliable waterproofing system in her basement.
Leaks in concrete structures are a problem that homeowners have struggled with for decades. Frustrated homeowners and professionals have tried to stop the water and leaking with sealers and patches of various kinds however they have had no luck. MidAmerica Basement Systems now proudly offer Chemical Injection. Chemical injection is a process in which a special polyurethane resin is injected into a crack hole, joint or another opening in concrete.
First holes are drilled in the wall at a 45-degree angle to cross the crack halfway through the wall. Then, special high-pressure injection ports are securely installed into the wall. Next. the poly resin is pumped into the cracks or joints. The appearance of the sealant on the inside is a positive indication of its migration all the way through the crack. After the resin is pumped into the wall the ports are removed and the holes are filled. For a nice appearance, a cement coating is then applied.
