Home in Monona, IA has Basement Waterproofing System Installed

Dan and Susan C. were noticing excessive amounts of water in their basement. They have an older home with a basement foundation constructed of stone wall. Over time, the earth around their home had settled causing small cracks in the basement walls. Settling dirt and clay is more than common, it is the cycle of Mother Nature.

With a quick call to MidAmerica Basement Systems, we were able to help Dan and Susan with their water issues they were having in their basement. The Crew affectively installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump, along with WaterGuard, TrenchDrain and SaniDry XP. The MidAmerica Basement Systems crew didn’t stop on the inside of the home, they extended the project outside as well. Making the project more affective, they installed LawnScape and IceGuard to direct the exiting water away from the home. Now Dan and Susan can feel at ease knowing their basement will no longer be wet.

Helical Anchors Stabilize Retaining Wall for Home in Strawberry Point, IA

Melissa’s driveway had a retaining wall that was starting to lean from the pressure of the ground over the years. Because it was a main foundation wall for both her home and garage, it was causing major structural issues. Doors and windows were being to stick and not shut properly, and foundation cracks were starting to form. She made the call to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her issue resolved. Pete and his crew began installing Helical Anchors to the retaining wall. Helical Anchors act as giant screws that are drilled through the wall and into the ground. This creates a permanent hold for the wall that can potentially better the condition of the wall, bringing the wall and rest of the home, back to its original position.

ZenWall panels are durable and completely washable and provide a thermal break from the cold concrete walls.

Failing Foundation Wall is Stabilized with Wall Anchors in Monona, IA

Alex was having a large issue with foundation cracks, which lead to bowing walls. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have a stabilizing system installed, and permanently fix the issue. A GeoLock Wall Anchor system was implemented to permanently stop the walls from worsening, and offered the option to straighten the wall back to its original position.
