Ben was very upset with the large sinking concrete in portions of his driveway. Overtime sections of the driveway had sunk due to the voids under the concrete. Some areas had dropped about 2 to 3 inches, leaving the driveway unlevel and unsafe. MidAmerica Basement Systems offered the solution PolyLevel. PolyLevel is injected under the concrete to fill to voids, once the voids are filled, it expands to lift and stabilize the slabs. The slabs that were 2-3 inches lower, now run flush with the other areas of the driveway, making the driveway level and safe once again.

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

Wall Restoration in Colona, IL

This homeowner was having issues with water pooling in her basement, making it a hassle to keep up with when it rained. She reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her basement issue inspected. It was offered to her to have CleanSpace and WaterGuard installed around the perimeter of the basement. CleanSpace helps reduce moisture in the area, while WaterGuard collects and redirects the water to the TripleSafe sump. Once the water reaches the sump, it is discharged from the basement, keeping the homeowner’s basement dry. She no longer has to worry about cleaning up a wet mess. To help repair the damaged walls, the bottom portion was removed and Everlast Wall Restoration system was installed.

Vicinity of Dayton Corner A St in Colona
I have an extruder pump feeding a septic tank. Basement floor is moderately damp. Small amounts of water coming in after big rains. There is no floor drain or sump pump. The drum on the extruder is very old. I am thinking another extruder drum installed with a backup extruder. Also if needed a sump pump with a backup. Do I need drain tiles leading to the sump? I need an estimate for part or whole.
Vicinity of Birchwood Dr. in Colona
We have water coming into our finished basement right where two walls and the floor meet. I know this because I had to rip out some drywall and the carpet and traced it to that spot. It comes in very fast after its been raining for a while.
