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.
The homeowner of this basement in Normal, IL were concerned about the condition of their basement. They were experiencing water intrusion. They were also worried about cracks in the foundation walls and about one of the walls beginning to show signs of bowing. The experts from MidAmerica Basement Systems installed the SuperSump pump to keep the basement dry all the time, along with WaterGuard, a perimeter drainage system. The team further waterproofed the space by installing the CleanSpace liner to the damaged walls. To stabilize the bowing wall, the team installed the PowerBrace foundation wall system with patented tightening system that potentially straightens the wall over time.
Jim slowly started noticing a slight bow happening and over the years its become very apparent. Jim was concerned of it collapsing and wondering is there we a way to straighten out the wall without having to redo the foundation.

George had a large, damaging issue of a leaking basement that caused mold growth, and damage to his belongings and the home itself. He contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his issue addressed. It was offered installing CleanSpace, BrightWall, WaterGuard, a SaniDry Sedona, and a TripleSafe. The CleanSpace and BrightWall worked together to redirect the seeping wall water to the WaterGuard, while reducing moisture and making the walls more appealing. WaterGuard helped collect and relocate the water to the TripleSafe sump where it would be discharged out of the basement. The SaniDry Sedona helped keep the humidity levels under control, to help prevent future mold growth.
Donna and Carl were concerned of the musty, moldy smell throughout their home. They thought it might be coming from the basement but didn’t know where. When they reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have the area inspected, a proper and effective waterproofing system was proposed. Chris had explained that the old walls and floors had begun to leak, causing water to puddle and pool, leading to the growth of mold. CleanSpace Liner was offered to be placed along the walls to seal off water and create a barrier to help prevent future mold growth. WaterGuard was placed along the wall and floors joints to collect water from the walls and floor and redirect it to a SuperSump. Now the seeping water can be properly redirected out of the home, leaving the basement dry, reducing the musty, moldy smell, and leaving Donna and Carl with a healthier smelling home.

He was offered a waterproofing system that used WaterGuard and CleanSpace Liner. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement to collect the seeping water along the joints. Due to the walls and floor being poured as a whole, weep holes were drilled into the walls to allow for water to come in, and CleanSpace Liner was installed over top the holes. CleanSpace acts a moisture barrier, aiding in the collecting of water to redirect the water to the WaterGuard. Water now properly flows towards the sump pump to be discharged out to the basement, leaking the area dry.
During large rain fall, Jeremy would receive standing water for days on end, making it hard to access his basement. He contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his issue addressed. A WaterGuard and TripleSafe systems were offered to provide Jeremy with the dry basement he was looking for. WaterGuard is a special drainage system that collects water from under the concrete floor, and from water that may seep in the foundation walls. After water is collected, it helps direct it to the TripleSafe sump. The TripleSafe offers a primary and secondary sump, and a third back-up battery sump for power outages. Jeremy now has a dry basement, and no longer worries of standing water.

Cole offered her a TripleSafe sump that has two primary pumps and a battery back-up pump for power outages. He also suggested installing a WaterGuard system that helps collect the seeping water before it surfaces, and redirects the water to the sump pump. CleanSpace Liner was also placed along the bottom portion of the walls to help collect seeping wall water. With the full waterproofing system installed in Kelly’s basement, she no longer worries of a leaking basement, and knows that she has the appropriate and proper waterproof system installed.

CleanSpace is a thick “pool-like” liner that will help reduce the moisture levels significantly. With the CleanSpace linking to a WaterGuard system, water and moisture will properly be redirected to a TripleSafe sump. Installing a SaniDry Sedona will complete the new waterproofing system for Rick. The musty odor is no longer an issue for his home.
Homeowner was experiencing water intrusion where the foundation walls meet the floor and through cracks in the floor. She called the professionals at MidAmerica Basement Systems. The team sent an expert out to inspect the home and provide a free estimate within the same day. Excited about having these problems fixed, the team began the project.
To address water coming in from the perimeter, the team installed WaterGuard. WaterGuard is designed to drain wall leaks and rising ground water from the perimeter into the new SuperSump, which comes with special features that make it stand out among other sump pump systems such as a perforated and durable liner that allows ground water to drain into the unit, an airtight lid that allows water to drain into the unit but prevents water vapor to rise, and a WaterWatch alarm that will alert Amy if there are any problems.
The team constructed a discharge line that allowed water to be pumped to the LawnScape away from the home. To further protect Amy's basement during the cold winter months, the team installed IceGuard which is designed to eject water away from the foundation walls if a pipe freezes, preventing flooding.
MidAmerica has provided a better equipped basement for the rainy and cold season!
Due to concrete being porous, cold and damp, almost any and all flooring will become ruined and destroyed by the basement floor. Except for ThermalDry Floor Matting. ThermalDry Flooring was designed to be installed in the basement. The snap-together, peg-raised tiles allow for quick installation and allow for air/moisture movement under the flooring. The space between the floor tile and concrete floor does one of two things: prevents water/moisture from condensing under the tiles and creates a thermal break between the cold, hard concrete. The many different color and texture options are all water resistant so you never have to worry about your basement flooring becoming ruined by water leaks or seeping moisture.
Katie & Matt have been at their home for 3yrs and ever since they have been having water seeping into their basement through the wall & floor joints. They plan to live at their home for the long term and want to finish their basement so fixing their leaky basement is priority. Our design specialist, Troy Hamilton had the privilege to assess the home and provide solutions for Katie & Matt. As a solution to help keep the water out the basement, Troy recommended WaterGuard. An effective waterproofing system, it captures groundwater before it leaks onto your basement floor. It does this by directing ground water to the sump pump where it can be pumped out the basement. Katie & Matt can now finish their basement with peace of mind.

Ray and Lynn were noticing excessive amounts of moisture in their basement, but couldn’t figure out where the issue was coming from. They reached out to the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems to have their mysterious issue resolved. During inspection, Chris addressed the source of the issue from the untreated crawlspace. Completely sealing off the exposed ground from the crawlspace will prevent moisture from entering the area and the basement.

SilverGlo insulation was also installed to help keep the area insulated, and vent covers were placed along the vent openings to the outside. Moisture levels are back in control at Ray and Lynn’s home.
