Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Elkader, IA

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 Elkader 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.

PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Elkader home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

We Fix
  • Cracked Driveways
  • Uneven Patios
  • Sinking Sidewalks      

  • Uneven Concrete
  • Sunken Pool Decks
  • Highway & Commercial Issues

Sue recently had her basement waterproofed by MidAmerica Basement Systems, and she was looking to finish the area. She was offered the EverLast Wall Panel system for the walls. The panels offer a waterproofed material that will prevent it from being ruined by moisture or leaks that could appear in the future. The EverLast panels also offer an R13 thermal rating to help make the basement more energy efficient.

Bowing Walls and Leaking Basement Resolve Issues in Elkader, IA

Brian had begun to notice horizontal stair-step cracking long his basement wall and quickly contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his issue resolved. During his inspection, it was made aware that the cracks were allowing water to seep in. CleanSpace was placed along the foundation wall to prevent water from enter the basement and direct it to the new drainage track, WaterGuard. WaterGuard than directs water to the TripleSafe to be discharged out of the home. To stop the wall from bowing, and potentially reverse the issue, a GeoLock Wall Anchor system was installed. The GeoLock Wall Anchors permanently stabilize the foundation wall, and allows for tightening, increasing the probability of straightening the wall back to its original position. 

1917 Home has Basement Waterproofed in Elkader, IA

Jeanine and her family live in a home that has been passed down the family, and wanted to keep the longevity of the home alive. The basement would leak every time it would rain due to the home being built in 1917. It was suggested by MidAmerica Basement Systems experts that installing a waterproofing system will extend the home’s life. CleanSpace was placed along the leaking walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement and to direct to the WaterGuard.  WaterGuard collects all moisture and water that seep into the basement, and directs it to the SuperSump where it is discharged. A SaniDry XP dehumidifier was also installed to keep humidity levels down, keeping the basement air dry.
