Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Buchanan County, Iowa

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

Our Products Include :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors
Unlike the average Buchanan contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Buchanan 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. Call us today to learn more.

We Fix
  • Cracked Driveways
  • Uneven Patios
  • Sinking Sidewalks      

  • Uneven Concrete
  • Sunken Pool Decks
  • Highway & Commercial Issues

SuperSump Pump Installed in Aurora, IL

Kristy R. would get water into her basement every time there was a hard rain. She decided to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate on her water troubles.

Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up with Dustin Shepard to come evaluate the basement. Dustin decided the best solution for this specific basement was to install WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement, a lateral drainage channel, and CleanSpace walling. The WaterGuard takes the water from the perimeter of the basement to the lateral. The lateral was installed because the SuperSump is located in the middle of the floor, this way the water can get to the SuperSump pumping system. The CleanSpace walling gives the basement a clean look, while also blocking the water that comes through the wall down to the WaterGuard.

Kristy R. is very happy to have her water problem fixed. She now has a dry basement for many years to come.

Dean was noticing water in his basement and thought it was coming in from the wall cracks so he had MidAmerica Basement Systems come in to install a waterproofing system.
