PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Fayette County 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.

Warren F. of Oelwein, IA wanted to finish his basement, so he decided to give the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems a call. He met with design specialist Joe Sarb who helped Warren custom design a solution for his basement space.

Improving Basement Waterproofing System in Oelwein, IA

Dennis was having issues with water seeping in through his block foundation and surfacing to the floor, rather than reaching his sump pump. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his sump pump replaced. During his inspection it was addressed that his current sump pump was working just fine. It was proposed installing CleanSpace and WaterGuard to increase the effectiveness of his current system. CleanSpace was applied to the walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement, and guide the moisture to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard collects moisture and water that enters in the basement, and directs it to the sump pump to be properly discharged from the home. Dennis now has an effective and efficient waterproofing system in his basement.

Maureen always dreaded flood season because she lived by the river, and would constantly have a flooded basement. She decided that enough was enough and reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. Design specialist, Bryan, was gladly to help find a permanent solution to her flooding basement. He offered WaterGuard to be placed around the perimeter of the basement to collect any water that would seep in, and redirect it to a TripleSafe sump.

The TripleSafe sumps also offer a battery back-up system that will continue to discharge water if the power ever fails to help Maureen stay at ease.

Leaking Basement Damaged Finished Area in Elgin, IA

Tammy and Jeff had a finished basement, but quickly found out that it wasn’t a good idea without a properly waterproofing system. They have never had issues with a wet basement, so they didn’t ever think it would be an issue over time. Water had begun to seep in through the floor and wall joint in multiple different areas, causing the drywall to warp and grow mold. They reached out to the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems to have their basement waterproofed. CleanSpace was installed along the foundation walls to prevent any moisture damaged to any drywall that may be installed down the road, and to keep moisture levels down. WaterGuard was placed along the perimeter of the basement to collect any seeping water to redirect it to a TripleSafe sump to be properly discharged from the basement. Now Tammy and Jeff have a proper waterproofing system for a finished basement.
