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

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows

Concrete Leveling for Property in Cedar Rapids, IA

PolyLevel is a state of the art approach to repairing sunken concrete, with a twist of the old mud jacking ways. Using modern technology and knowledge, PolyLevel offers many more advantages. Holes, roughly 5/8 inch in size, are drilled into the concrete so the high-density polymers can fill the voids that have formed underneath the slabs. After all voids are filled, the PolyLevel expands, lifting and leveling to sunken slabs. The lightweight material weighs less than 4lbs per cubic foot compared to the 120lbs of mud jacking slurry, offering less stress weight on the soil. PolyLevel also has a quick drying time, allowing access to the injected area within 15 minutes of application. Mud jacking can take several days to cure, preventing the use of the area.

NexusPro Joint Sealant Seals Driveway in Cedar Rapids, IA

Due to the cracks in between concrete slabs, rain water can easily seep down, causing the ground to wash out. Wash outs then leave voids under the concrete, causing them to sink and even crack under extreme conditions. Appling NexusPro Joint Sealant, water can no longer seep in between the slabs, helping the ground under the slabs keep longer. NexusPro also blends with the concrete, reducing the appearance of unsightly cracks caused by voids. NexusPro helps the life extension of concrete slabs.

1920's Home Fixes Leaking Foundation in Cedar Rapids, IA

Ashley had an older home, and over the years her small seeping foundation had turned a waterfall stream. She reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her problem fixed. It was suggested that she have BrightWall, WaterGuard and a TripleSafe installed. The BrightWall gives the basement a vapor barrier from the water the enters in through to foundation, directing it to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is placed around the perimeter of the basement to collect water that seeps in the foundation, and is directed to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe than discharges all the water that enters the home, back out, leaving the basement dry.

Leaking Basement Floor Cracks are Resolved for Home in Cedar Rapids, IA

Phil and Laura were having issues with water coming up through their floor foundation cracks. This was a large concern for them, because they thought the only way that it could be fix was demoing the whole floor and laying down new concrete. During their waterproofing inspection, Dustin of MidAmerica Basement Systems offered them a relief to their floor. With the installation of WaterGuard and Lateral drain systems, water will no longer seep in through the floor cracks, but instead flow into the drains to be directed to the TripleSafe sump. Without the help from the Lateral drains, water would surface to the floor, making the basement wet.

Solving Water Problems in Cedar Rapids, IA

Rob K. was having a couple different water issues in his basement including water from the exterior of the house and water coming in through the floor. He decided to call in the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems to get a free in-home estimate.

After speaking with the office staff, an appointment was set up for Dustin Shepard to come evaluate the basement. After Dustin assessed the basement, he decided the best solution for this particular problem was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, a couple laterals, and a full perimeter of WaterGuard installed. The laterals are a drainage material that is placed through the middle of the basement floor to get any water that comes up through the floor and takes it to the WaterGuard. The WaterGuard is a channeling system around the inside perimeter of the basement and it take the water from the basement to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe pumping system is the best in the business at getting all of the water up, out, and safely away from the home.

Rob K. is very happy to no longer have to worry about water in his basement. He appreciates everything MidAmerica Basement Systems did for him and would recommend them to anyone with a basement issue.

Waterproofed Old Basement in Cedar Rapids, IA

Ashley just purchased this home in Cedar Rapids. The home was built in the 1920's, so Ashley knew her new home may need some TLC. What Ashley didn't know until after it rained, was the substantial problem occurring in her basement. Ashley called MidAmerica Basement Systems about a massive leak that resembled more of a waterfall than a leak. Given that the home was built years ago, there was no way of knowing how long the problem has plagued this basement or how severe the damage was. Ashley called the MidAmerica Basement Systems team and an expert was sent out to the home for a free inspection and estimate.

Once Ashley understood what was happening and what could be done, the MidAmerica team began the plan to restore Ashely's basement. To address the problem of flooding from the amount of water coming in, the TripleSage Sump Pump was installed. With the ability to pump out massive amount of water with its 3 in 1 advanced pumping system, the "waterfall" Ashley described met its match. The basement was then installed with the WaterGuard waterproofing system, which redirects wall leaks to the TripleSafe sump pump. The walls were then fitted with BrightWall. BrightWall is not only designed to brighten dark basements by giving it a "finished" look, but also is made of inorganic materials making it resistant to mold.

Now when Ashley goes down to her basement, she no longer worries about leaks or "waterfalls". MidAmerica is proud to have helped to restore this older basement for its newest homeowner!

Window of Opportunity in Cedar Rapids

Tony and Dawn, homeowners of this Cedar Rapids home, really wanted to have a warm, bright and inviting basement. Starting with the windows. They called the team at MidAmerica Basement Systems and the expert, Joe Sarb, had the perfect solution that would not only provide Tony and Dawn with everything they wanted (like brightness and warmth) but also the things they needed (like durability and waterproof). Tony and Dawn were excited at the possibilities and soon the MidAmerica got to work.

With Mike Keck leading the team, they began by digging a hole around the exterior ground level window. Then they began enlarging the original window size to fit the new, larger energy efficient StakWel Egress window. To encapsulate the StakWel Egress window, the team installed the SunHouse. A durable window dressing that keeps weed, leaves and rain at bay. The SunHouse has a sturdy, clear lid that allows plenty of natural light in. The SunHouse is also a bright white color which allows light to bounce off and illuminate dark spaces.

Basement is Waterproofed in Cedar Rapids

This basement in Cedar Rapids is owned by Graig, who noticed the deterioration of his basement and wanted a solution that he could trust to be efficient and reliable. Graig called on the MidAmerica Basement Systems team and requested to have one of our experts come out to his home and assess the problem.

With a greater understanding of what was happening and what can be done (including cost) to remedy Graig's basement troubles, Graig agreed. With Bill Wilcox as Primary Foreman, the team began working on Graig's basement. First, the team installed the TripleSafe sump pump system to alleviate the basement of further flood damage. The TripleSafe sump pump system is powerful enough to pump out at least 12,000 gallons of water (the average size of basements from floor to ceiling) and smart enough to alert Graig if there is ever a problem.

Next, the team addressed water leaks from the foundation walls by installing the WaterGuard system, which is able to re-direct leaks to the TripleSafe sump pump. Finally, the team lined the most evidently damaged foundation walls with none other than the CleanSpace liner wall system. A revolutionary product that is resistant to tears and punctures (so it's long lasting) and is also made with an anti-microbial additive that wards off mold and bacteria growth.

Graig included other exclusive Basement Systems products, such as the IceGuard, which comes to action in the case of a pipe freezing during winter. And the LawnScape well outlet, which is extremely popular for discharge lines on sump pumps to direct water away from the home. Graig can now rest easy knowing that his basement will be dry and healthy.

MidAmerica appreciates Graig's business. The team is happy that they were able to not only help Graig waterproof his basement, but was also able to ensure that Graig got everything he wanted...and nothing he didn't!

Waterproofing and Crawlspace Encapsulation in Cedar Rapids

Jessica was tired of dealing with water in her basement and having to look at a dreary crawlspace. She was referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems by a past customer to have a free estimate done.

After giving them a call, an appointment was set up for Joe Sarb to come diagnose the basement and crawlspace. Joe decided the best solution for the water issue was to install a TripleSafe pumping system to pump the water out and away from the home. Also, a full perimeter of WaterGuard drainage system to make sure the water has a way to travel to the pumping system. Finally, BrightWall strips to protect form the water coming in through the walls of the basement. For the crawlspace, Joe proposed encapsulating the entire area with CleanSpace, this will fully encapsulate the crawlspace making it cleaner and nearly impossible for animals to get in. Jessica is very happy with the work MidAmerica Basement Systems did and now has a care free basement.

Finally, BrightWall strips to protect form the water coming in through the walls of the basement. For the crawlspace, Joe proposed encapsulating the entire area with CleanSpace, this will fully encapsulate the crawlspace making it cleaner and nearly impossible for animals to get in. Jessica is very happy with the work MidAmerica Basement Systems did and now has a care free basement.

Dry Basement in Cedar Rapids

Jamie was afraid her drain tile would become clogged like it had in the past and she really wanted to finish her basement. She was referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems to get a free estimate.

Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up for Mike Banks to come evaluate the basement. Mike decided the best solution for the water problem was to install a TripleSafe pumping system and a full perimeter of WaterGuard drainage system around the basement. The TripleSafe pumping system will keep the basement dry and be able to keep up with any rain storm. The full perimeter of WaterGuard drainage system will make sure the water is directed to the pumping system throughout the entire business. Since Jamie also wanted to finish her basement, Mike proposed the Basement to Beautiful panels. These panels are a good look and will keep the water out.

Jamie could not be happier with her decision to have her basement waterproofed by MidAmerica Basement Systems. She no longer has to worry about water coming in her home when it rains.

in Cedar Rapids
We are developing a crack in the middle of our foundation wall. Having a straight edge flat against the top portion of the wall leaves a .75" gap between the edge and the bottom of the wall. The foundation is cracking on this side of the house. We are exploring the feasibility of making repairs and, possibly, combining this with a basement remodel that includes a bench footing to get us 1-2 feet of extra headroom, radiant floor heating, and egress window(s). Our house has a market value of only $120,000, but we are planning on nesting here for many years so we are interested in investing more in our home than might otherwise make sense. What do you advise? Can you help us with this project? What kind of budget would this project require?
