The sunken and cracked concrete around your Bremer County home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.
Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

Jo and Ray M. were having water problems along with foundation issues in their basement. They decided to give MidAmerica Basement Systems a call for help because they had used them in the past.
After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come evaluate the basement. Mac decided the best solution for their particular problem was to have a partial WaterGuard system installed. The WaterGuard will channel the water towards the pumping system that will take the water up, out, and away from the home.
Jo and Ray M. could not be happier to have a basement that is worry free. With the Wall Anchors from previous work holding pulling the walls back into place and the new WaterGuard getting rid of the water, their home should be worry free for many years to come.
Ken and Michele C. would get water in their old, dark basement every time there was a heavy rain. They needed help, not only with the water, but also with creating a more inviting space. They gave MidAmerica Basement Systems a call for a free in-home estimate.
Dustin Shepard was the design specialist to go out and evaluate the basement. Dustin concluded the best solution for this particular basement was to install a full perimeter of WaterGuard, a SuperSump pumping system, and a full perimeter of BrightWall. The BrightWall is a walling system that gives the basement a very clean look, while also directing the water from the wall to the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard takes the water around the basement to the SuperSump. The SuperSump pumping system will make sure to pump all the water up, out, and away from the home.
Ken and Michele C. are very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems and would recommend them to anyone with a basement. They have a worry-free basement for many years to come.
Joan L. of Denver, IA has been a customer of MidAmerica Basement Systems for four years. When she had the team out to her property for the first time in 2012, she was concerned about waterproofing her basement. Satisfied with that work, in 2016 she made the decision to install a radon mitigation system to rid her home of toxic radon gasses. She once again called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems.
Soon, service technician Adao Natario came out to the property. After discussing the different options, Joan and Adao settled on a system. Not long thereafter, Joan's new system was installed by foreman Bill Wilcox and his team. Joan is thrilled to know the air that she is breathing is radon-free.
Angie had a sump pump that seemed to be working properly, it kept her basement dry. The issue was the pump would still continue to run days after rains. She heard about MidAmerica Basement Systems’ free estimates, and decided to have them come and inspect her sump pump. The experts praised her for contacting them, for what Angie didn’t know was that all the extra continued work her sump pump was doing, was causing excessive wear and tear on the pump. At any given time, the pump could have failed her, creating a big issue in her basement. It was suggested that she replaced her worn sump with a TripleSafe. The TripleSafe not only provided a new sump pump, but a pump that could handle all the water the old pump could not. Now when it rains, her sump pump doesn’t overwork itself, preventing excessive wear and tear.
Stair-step cracking is a sign of bowing walls, caused by soil pressure on the foundation walls. Without the proper balancing force acting against the soil pressure, the wall will continue to worsen. MidAmerica Basement Systems can provide a permanent solution that can stop the walls from bowing any more inward, with the PowerBrace system. A PowerBrace is a tightening I-beam system, that can potentially improve the condition of the bowing wall. PowerBraces are installed using the wooden floor joist system of the home, and properly distribute the weight of the rest of the home, so the joist system is not ruined.
Leaking basements can lead to many issues, and will only become worse over time. Having an expert from MidAmerica Basement Systems evaluate your situation, will provide the proper and most effective solution. For Irene, it was suggested having CleanSpace, WaterGuard, and a TripleSafe. The CleanSpace helps provide a moisture barrier from the seeping water, allowing it to collect in the WaterGuard. WaterGuard than directs water to the TripleSafe, where it is properly discharged out of the home, leaving the basement dry.
Judy recently purchased a radon test kit to check the levels of radon in her home. When she received her test results, she was shocked. She quickly reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems for help. When design specialist Wes came out to inspect her situation, he offered her a system using her current sump pump. Using the existing pump pit helps withdraw the radon gas out from under the home, leaving healthy, cleaner air inside the home, while the dangerous gases are pulled from the home. Judy can now breathe happy knowing her radon levels are mitigated.
Bill and Krista were concerned with the radon levels in their home. When they contacted MidAmerica Basement systems, they were not just looking for someone to install a system for them but also to educate them on why having a radon mitigation system is important. It is important to have a radon mitigation system in your home because radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Radon not only affects you and your family but can also harm your pets. Often, we see radon mitigation system on the outside of your home but they also can be placed inside of your garage.

Homeowner Bill and Marty Jean have lived in their home for the last 30 years since the home was built. They have been recently worried about the air quality in their home and decided to have a radon test done. After receiving results that were not ideal they decided to have a radon mitigation system installed. Radon is naturally occuring and is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.
Homeowner Dean has lived in his home for the last 22 years since the home was first built. Over the last few years, he has slowly started to notice that the slabs of concrete that make up his driveway were starting to sinking in places which lead to cracking. He wanted to have the issue addressed to make sure that it would not lead to a tripping hazard and also he wanted to improve the overall curb appeal to his home. Polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete slabs, the foam expands lifting the slab and then hardens to hold the slab in its place. The polyurethane foam is water resistant and will not wash away like other alternatives such as mudjacking. The foam is also environmentally friendly and is made up of all recycled materials. The foam can be used on driveway, sidewalks, patios and pool decks along with garage floors and other poured concrete surfaces.
Homeowner, Dan had MidAmerica Basement Systems do previous work on his home. He had his crawlspace repaired in the past but thought it was time to waterproof his basement due to the volume of water coming in. Along with having a waterproofing system installed, IceGuard was one of the outside systems that was installed in Dan's home.
IceGuard is the system that the sump pump discharges to. The pipes for the system to discharge are located outside of the home. IceGuard will allow the water to keep escaping through the pipes even when they freeze from cold temperatures. This is a great system to consider having installed because if the pipe freezes the sump pump will continue to run. The last thing you want is water in your basement! IceGuard is an automatic system that will continue to make sure the water is exiting out of the home no matter the temperature.
