Kevin has been living at his home for 26yrs but in the last few years he been having water seeping in through cracks in his basement walls. He called MidAmerica Basement Systems and was setup with our design specialist, Mac McDaniel. Mac had the privilege to assess the home and provide solutions. Because Kevin has mortar walls Mac recommended that we install a CleanSpace wall System. The CleanSpace System will prevent water vapor which will help prevent that damp, musky feel and because it’s made from inorganic material. Mold will not grow. We also installed a WaterGuard System around the perimeter of the basement which will capture any water and channel it to the sump tank. Kevin decided to go with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The TripleSafe sump pump system keeps your basement dry with triple the protection. Most sump pumps fail because of either a failed pump, a pump that can't handle high volumes of water or power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three sump pump problems.

Ben was having issues with water seeping in through one area of his basement, but didn’t know how to have it addressed. When he spoke with Cole from MidAmerica Basement Systems, he was offered a waterproofing system that would not only protect the area that was currently leaking, but stop the rest of the basement from leaking. CleanSpace was placed along the walls to help redirect seeping water to the WaterGuard, and reduce moisture levels. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter for the basement to collect and redirect the seeping water the a TripleSafe sump. From there the water is discharged, keeping the basement dry. A SaniDry Sedona was also installed to keep moisture and humidity levels under control.
Sarah was having issues with water seeping in through foundation cracks, leaving the basement wet and constantly damp. She reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her basement inspected. It was noted that the foundation cracks were coming from the bowing walls, and a PowerBrace system would address the bowing walls. To address the water issue, CleanSpace Liner was installed over the walls, helping reduce the moisture levels, and help redirect water properly to the drainage track. The drainage track, WaterGuard, collects seeping wall and floor water, and redirects it to a TripleSafe. The TripleSafe properly discharges the water from the basement, leaving the area dry once and stable, once again.
With the help from MidAmerica Basement Systems, PolyLevel will lift and lever your home’s interior slabs, patios and pool decks, driveways, stoops and porches, sidewalks, and additions. For Marvin, his driveway and sidewalk had begun to sink and produce large tripping hazards. Once PolyLevel was injected, the voids that had caused the slabs to sink, were filled and then PolyLevel expanded to lift them to a level state. After all areas were injected with PolyLevel, NexusPro Joint Sealant was applied to all cracks, preventing future soil washouts from rain water. The sealant is a flexible material that will expand and contract with the natural movement of the ground, providing the proper seal for the cracks.
Renee of Sterling was noticing her floors sagging and called MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her foundation inspected. During examination, the floor joists and girders appeared weakened and slightly buckled.

SmartJacks and support beams were offered to help stabilize and level flooring again. To address the moisture problem, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed. Renee can know rely on SmartJacks to support her home, while keeping the air dry with a SaniDry Sedona.

After assessing the basement, Mike decided the best solution for this particular situation was to install Power Braces on the exterior walls. The Power Brace system are steel beams that are secured at the floor and the ceiling to keep the wall from coming in any further. They are also designed to push the wall back to the original position over time.
Don S. is very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. He no longer has to worry about his foundation caving in on him.
Kate S. was having multiple problems in her basement from water issues, water damage, and even foundation problems. She was desperate need of help, so she called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.
After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come and assess the basement. Mac decided the best solution for her particular basement issues was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, CleanSpace walling, a full perimeter of WaterGuard, and multiple Power Braces. The WaterGuard is a drainage system put along the inside perimeter of the home to capture the water and transport it to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the latest and greatest in the sump pump market; it is equipped with three pumps to make sure all of the water is pumped up, out, and safely away from the home. The CleanSpace walling is a great look for the basement walls, but also blocks the water from the walls and directs it to the WaterGuard to be pumped out as well. The Power Braces are long steel beams that keep the wall from caving in and over time will push the wall back into its original position.
Kate S. is very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. Her basement is now worry free and will stay that way for a very long time.
