Driveway and Sidewalk Repair in Coal Valley, IL

Jim has lived in his home for the last nine years. Over time, he noticed the sidewalk and driveway of their home were slowly sinking and cracking. He contacted us regarding his interest in the concrete repair services offered at MidAmerica Basement Systems. The solution we offered comes in the form of a  polyurethane foam. The foam is injected under the concrete slab and fills the void underneath.  The foam expands and hardens in the void which lifts and levels the slab.

Radon Mitigation in Coal Valley

Homeowner Dean and Jody have lived in their 1970’s home for the last 22 years. They were recently concerned with the levels of radon in their home. After having a test kit delivered to their home they were eager to see the results that they would receive. The EPA says that 4 picocuries (pCi/L) is an expectable level of radon to have in your home, however at MidAmerica Basement Systems we believe that no level of radon is safe to have in your home.  Dean and Jody have had a radon in mitigation system installed in their home. The radon system was installed in their attack.

Radon Mitigation in Coal Valley

Dean and Jody have lived in their home for over 22 years. They were concerned about radon in their home so they conducted a test to see what the levels of radon were in their home. After receiving the results from the test, they were very concerned about how high their levels were so they called MidAmerica Basement Systems. Design Specialist Cole Tatge educated them on radon mitigation systems and why they were needed in their home. Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. The EPA recommends that testing is done in the lowest point of your home. This represents an area where the greatest level of radon occurs.

CleanSpace and WaterGuard Make Basement Waterproofing More Effect for Home in Coal Valley, IL

Jeff M. of Coal Valley has a sump pump in his basement to keep his basement from flooding. But he started noticing that when it rained heavily, water just wasn’t seeping in from the floor of the foundation. It would come in from the top of the foundation and run down along the wall, causing the floor to become wet. Jeff thought he was going to need to replace his sump pump with a whole new system.

Upon the inspection from MidAmerica Basement Systems, they assured him he didn’t need a new sump pump, but instead adding a few products to help with the leaking foundation. The crew installed CleanSpace and WaterGuard to help direct any water that would leak in to the sump pump. Now when it rains heavily, water doesn’t pool on the floor, but instead is properly directed to the sump pump.

Cold, Damp Basement Made Dry in Coal Valley, IL

Marilyn C. of Coal Valley, IL contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems because she was concerned about water intrusion. She had water coming in at the bottom of the wall, largely on the North side of her property.

Marilyn met with design specialist Mike Banks. After inspecting the inside and outside of the home, Mike was able to identify the problem, and more importantly, the solution. He showed Marilyn where the water was coming in and explained exactly how it could be fixed. Foreman Bill Wilcox and his team came out to the property to install products that would ensure Marilyn's basement would stay dry. These products included the patented sub-floor drainage system, WaterGuard, a TripleSafe Sump Pump, IceGuard attachment piece, and a buried discharge line with a LawnScape exit piece. Additionally, Mike recommended covering her existing egress windows with SunHouse lids. Now, Marilyn's basement is finally dry, and she can rest easy.

Our 3/4 finished basement flooded for the second time in a year last night after the heavy rain. The first time it happened, it was due to a power outage and us not having a battery-powered sump. We had a battery backup installed, but last night our sump couldn't keep up and water still got in our basement. We need a permanent solution, especially since our foundation sits lower.

We purchased our home in August 2012. A previous owner had an addition added (contractor unknown) and there is a crack between the new and the old cement foundation wall from the basement floor extening up the 8' wall. At the top of the wall, the crack is approximatley 3/8" wide. Light through the crack is visibal above the dirt line. There were large storage shelves covering the crack so both ourselves and our building inspector missed citing the crack on our pre-purchase inspection. Cracks (previously repaired and hidden) have appeared in the drywall on the second story. We need to know if foundation work is required so the side of the house (addition) doesn't slide down the hill or if all that is required is fixing the cracks.

Alt. Ph: We have a mostly finished basement. Over the past several months the carpet in one of the finished area keeps getting wet and is now musty. Occasionally there would be standing water in the adjascent unfinished utility room but I do not see evidence of the source for the water in that room (Water heater, water softner appear to not be leaking, unplugged and drained freezer, still have problem). I am concerned there is a crack in the foudnation under the carpet but have not checked that far yet. Thank you, Kevin Hernandez

We have a cement block foundation, and the wooden board that sits on top of the foundation is flush with the edge of the block in most spots. There is a section that is not flush, may have been there for years and not noticed, and would just like someone to look at it and see if we need to address it or not.
