    The installation crew, Bill and Blue, were the best. They were very courteous and professional, explained everything and asked permission before starting anything. They were very hard workers, and made the installation much more quickly than I would have thought possible. They took great care to minimize the mess and dust, and were very neat and tidy at each step, cleaning up as they went. The installation looked great - very neat - and there was absolutely no mess left anywhere in my house. They even swept the driveway. I cannot recommend this crew too highly.

    I was very nervous about doing an inside drainage system. Had only heard that we would have to dig around the outside of our house to take care of the water leaking. MidAmerica took care of all my doubts and now I have a very nice basement with new windows and the zen wall looks awesome. I kind of want it to rain to hear the pump run :-). Thank you MidAmerica Basement - you gave me my basement back!

    When Matt came to our home for the first initial visit, he was very friendly and knowledgeable and was will to answer our many questions. When we decided to go forward with this and requested Bill and his crew, that wasn't a problem either. When Bill, Justin and Jamie arrived they were very friendly and professional. As far as we're concerned, they all deserve a WOW! Service award! What a great bunch of guys. We would recommend them to anyone. We are extremely happy with them and the job that they did.

    After having his basement waterproofed, homeowner, Steve wanted his basement to look like water has never touched it. He wanted the space to be once again functional where his family could enjoy watching TV and playing games. MidAmerica Basement Systems was happy to help! On top of waterproofing his basement, Bill was able to install Elite Plank Flooring to finish off his space.

    Real wood should never be installed within a basement. The TheremalDry Elite Plank Flooring system gives you that warm, luxurious look without you having to worry about water or moisture distorting the flooring. It contains no wood at all, just the look of it. It comes in two different shades, a light pecan, and dark walnut. Installer, Bill was able to install dark walnut in Steve's home. The flooring is installed by locking the planks together. They are designed with raised pegs, so they do not sit directly on the concrete floor. They are designed to sit above so water vapor does not get trapped underneath the system. If there ever happens to be any type of water leak the planks can be easily removed and dried and reinstalled as nothing happened!

    Homeowner, Steve now has his basement back and can enjoy it once again thanks to MidAmerica Basement Systems! If you are having the same issue as Steve, do not hesitate to reach out to us, we would be happy to help you!
