    I called around to try to find out who installed our original basement system and MidAmerica offered to come out for free to check it out and make recommendations. Kyle McCarty and his crew did the waterproofing, bright wall, clean space, and outside work. Very nice, knowledgeable young men. Enjoyed visiting with them. Dillon Heard and his crew did the windows and window wells. Again very nice, knowledgeable young men. Would definitely recommend both crews!

    At the time we selected the service MidAmerica had the best product offering for what we felt would meet our needs. That was back in 2009ish. To this point we absolutely don't regret the decision and expense of putting this product in our home. It has paid for itself year after year.

Nothing but good things to say about him and his crew. Kept me informed from start to finish. Worked with me when I wanted to make changes from the original agreement.

    Bill S. of Morton, IL

    Customer Testimonial

              I chose MidAmerica Basement Systems becasue I read several reviews from satisfied customers and have personally known Troy Hamilton (sales rep) since 5th grade. Dillon and his crew did tremendous work - very nice, professional, and courteous. Thankfully Dillon and David showed up on Thursday and finished the job in one day. Again, they did a tremendous job and we are very pleased with the final product. They also did an excellent job cleaning up and left hardly any trace of them being here. Troy Hamilton and Dan Garner did a very good job explaining the system, how it works, what was involved with the installation, warranty, pricing, etc.

    Customer Testimonial

              MidAmerica Basement Systems was easy to find on the internet. After leaving a internet message on a Sunday, a person called us (on a SUNDAY!!) and set up an appointment. The fast response was a definite sale. Shows that they think we are important. We would recommend this company to anyone! The salesman was informative, and broke everything down in understandable terms. He wasn't out to sell us something that we didn't need. He was honest. Dillon, David and Adam were absolutely fantastic. Dillon has a great personality with a great sense of humor. He made us feel at ease and was advocate for what was best for us. Couldn't have asked for anything better out of this crew. I loved that Dillon was adamant about putting our system in to make it safe for us. He refused to put it in the way it was suggested. He did a lot of extra manual work, but in the end, this was the smartest and safest way to be done and the way it should be done. GREAT JOB DILLON AND CREW! The cleanup process was more than what we expected! The got rid of old equipment which was absolutely fantastic. This crew was very knowledgeable and professional. Left the basement, house, yard better than when they arrived. Super service from Dillon, David and Adam. WONDERFUL!

    Customer Testimonial

              Dave McDaniel was the field sales specialist. He was very knowledgeable of what my particular application needed and designed the system. It was perfect. The office staff was very helpful and kept me apprised of installation dates. Dillion, Doug and Tyler were the installation crew on site. They did a fantastic job on the installation. It came out far better than I hoped for. It was amazing to see these guys work. They were non stop. Fine job guys! The site was spotless after the installation. I did some on line research compared to other companies and I felt more confident choosing MidAmerica Basement System. I made the right choice as the equipment and installation are far superior to other ones that I have seen. Great job! I have already recommended your company to three of my neighbors.

    Customer Testimonial

              Chris did a fantastic job of explaining the work to be done. Misunderstanding on my part as to how much area would receive foam insulation. Contract was correct. I rushed Chris during the presentation as I had another appointment to make. Dillon, Tyler, and Blake where respectful professional and cleaned up area better than when they arrived. Couldn't believe how fast they completed the work. Outstanding team work by all three. Area was cleaner than when they arrived. I chose MidAmerica Basement Systems after I saw work done on Jerry Lange's home in rural Davenport, Iowa by your company. I was so impressed I called for an estimate and didn't bother to get competitive estimates.

              I chose MidAmerica, because Cole did such a good job with his presentation. After he came, I cancelled all other estimates. I am completely happy with the Installation. Dillon provided A+ service. He communicated well with all items that were needed, or that would not be completed and gave a thorough explanation of what work he completed and items that needed to be finished. Both Dillon and his helper Corey did an excellent job of cleaning up all work spaces. Would prefer both of them to work on any job of mine again.

    Customer Testimonial

              We were very impressed with your products. Your installation crew with crew manager Mike Clementz did an excellent job! They were on time everyday and worked late in the day. They did an excellent job keeping the dust down when jackhammering for the sump pump and cleaning up each day. They quickly solved a few issues we had with placement of a Sanidry. All men in the crew were very polite and answered our questions. The final product and final basement is beyond our expectations! We will definitely recommend you to others. We had found your company in the phone book and your sales rep, Mike Banks, was so helpful in laying out how to solve our problems. We were sold right away. Thanks!

    Historic J. Parker Monroe Home Waterproofing in Davenport, IA

    The J. Monroe Parker house was built in 1881 by James Monroe Paker who was a wealthy davenport financer. The home was designed by 19th-century builder T.W. McClelland.  

    The challenge with this large historic home was that the home had few straight walls and the WaterGuard system had to be cut in many different sizes and placed. Four TripleSafe sump pumps were added to the home to make sure that the home stayed dry.  The TripleSafe sump pump is a three pump system that comes with a battery back up and WaterWatch alarm. The battery back up is used to keep the pump running in the case that the power goes out. The WaterWatch alarm is placed at the top of the pump and will alert you in case the water in the pump gets too high. The walls had a layer of CleanSpace added to them. CleanSpace is a barrier that is installed on the walls, similar to a very thick pool liner and will help keep out moisture.
