The patented WaterGuard system is designed to meet these challenges and keep your basement dry. WaterGuard is engineered so it doesn't sit in the dirt so that it does not get clogged by silt and sediment under the floor. The WaterGuard System is applicable to all types of foundations including block, poured concrete and stone. Along with the WaterGuard system Stan and Mary also had a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe Sump Pump is a three-pump system that comes with a battery back-up and a WaterWatch Alarm. With the battery back up you can make sure that the pump runs even if you have power issues during a storm. The WaterWatch Alarm is to make sure you know if the water gets to high in the pump.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Chillicothe, IL

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 Chillicothe 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.

Radon Mitigation at a Chillicothe, IL Church

At a church in Chillicothe, IL, radon tested at levels almost five times higher than the EPA's recommended safe level. Design specialist Fred Romane met with a representative from the church, Ron S. Fred recommended two radon systems for the large building, complete with the exterior aesthetic package. Now, the church is radon-free, protecting all the occupants, including a preschool.

Radon Defense in Sparland

Richard was dealing with a little bit of everything in his basement from water, bowing walls, but his main concern was the radon levels. He remembered seeing MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call for a free estimate.

Shortly after calling them, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the issues in the basement. Mark decided the best solution for Richard’s high radon levels was to install a new radon mitigation system. The radon mitigation system will calculate the radon levels in the home and take the radon out and away from the home.

Richard is extremely happy with the work and professionalism of MidAmerica Basement Systems. He no longer has to worry about the radon levels in his home.

Basement Now Stays Dry in Chillicothe, IL

Vicky has lived in her house for several years and continued to have a water problem in her basement. She finally had enough and went online in search of professional help. She found MidAmerica Basement Systems right away and wanted to learn more.

She was very pleased to find out the estimate was free and the appointment was set up right away. Mark Kurtz, a trained design specialist, was sent to Vicky’s house and after a thorough inspection he came up with a customized solution for her specific problem. He proposed a WaterGuard drainage channel that would unnoticably direct the water to the TripleSafe pumping system that was also going to be installed. The humidity was a little high in her home as well, so Mark proposed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep mold from growing in the basement. After Mark went over how the whole process worked with Vicky, she was sold and got the appointment scheduled.

Vicky’s basement was completed by MidAmerica Basement Systems in the middle of 2012 and it continues to stay completely dry to this day. She could not be happier with her decision in choosing MidAmerica Basement Systems and now has no worries about water when it rains.

Seepage of water coming from 3 locations. Wet have sump pump. Moved in home in October and noticed water in April. At that time gutters were clogged. This time gutters were clear, though maybe water isn't being funneled away far enough from foundation.
Vicinity of White Clover Drive in Chillicothe
Water leaks in through the basement wall (block wall). Water leaks in through window wells during a heavy rain if the wind is out of the right direction. Once water gets into the basement, the water bypasses the drain in the middle of the floor, does not drain toward the sump pump, and pools at the base of the stairs. I have a pipe that feeds into the sump pump, but the sump pump is bone dry even during the heaviest of rains.
