Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Galena, IL

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 Galena 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.

Job Stories From Galena, IL
Sinking Foundation in Galena, IL

Scott of Galena was very concerned about his foundation. Over the years, the ground had settled and was causing stress on his home. The stress left large cracks in his foundation, and was causing it to be unstable and unsafe. Members of MidAmerica Basement Systems were there to help Scott’s failing foundation by installing push Piers. Push Piers are placed below the foundation in stable soil, so that the home can be lifted and straightened. Scott can now live safely in his home.

New Basement Waterproofing System Stops Water Intrusion for Home in Galena, IL

Lori was having issues with water seeping in her basement but had no idea where the exact location of where. She reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to what they could do to resolve her issue. Design specialist, Mac, inspected her situation and provided her with a new waterproofing option. He offered her CleanSpace Wall Liner to be placed along the walls to help reduce moisture levels. WaterGuard around the perimeter of her basement to collect and redirect the water to a sump pump, preventing the water from surfacing to the floor. And a TripleSafe sump to discharge the water out of her basement. Lori no longer has water in her basement and is happy once again.

Mystery Water Intrusion Solved in Galena, IL

The homeowner was not pleased with the condition of this basement in Galena, they were having water issues in the basement and so they called the professionals at MidAmerica Basement Systems. A few years back they had a curtain drain installed and it worked until recently and now the basement is getting water seepage again. The basement is finished with drywall and so they do not know where the water is coming in from. The team sent an expert and the source was soon uncovered behind a portion of the finished wall. The team was able to address the issue with minimal disturbance.

To address water intrusion, the team installed the patented SuperSump. The SuperSump is an efficient sump pumping system that comes with special features to help keep basements dry, such as the WaterWatch alarm system that will alert the homeowner of a potential problem. The SuperSump has an air tight lid and CleanPump stand to keep the system debris free and therefor functioning properly. 

The team installed the WaterGuard around the perimeter of the space to drain water to the SuperSump. Then the walls were lined with CleanSpace waterproofing system to help direct wall leaks to the WaterGuard. The CleanSpace also combats mold growth with UltraFresh, an antimicrobial agent. The 20 mils thick material is also a vapor barrier to provide protection from outside influences.

Now the homeowners have a basement they can feel good about. MidAmerica Basement Systems is happy to have provided these homeowners with a space that is dryer and healthier!

Vicinity of Timberon Trail in Galena
Wet basement bedroom - mold - slow leak in foundation, too much rain, came into bedroom. Need remediation and foundation sealing. Also, have a radon blower that stopped working. May be an electrical problem or need new blower.
Vicinity of S Dodge St in Galena
Within the past 2 months, noticeable new cracks in our plaster ceilings/walls upstairs that I know have been caused by our home shifting. We moved in 2 yrs ago and live in a really old house that previous owners did not maintain. We are used to slanted floors, etc. but I have observed NEW cracks in foundation, water damage, bowed walls, etc. I can provide photos if helpful. We are not ready for a total overhaul/redo of our foundation at this time, but definitely need an expert to review and tell us what does need to be done now in order to maintain structural integrity of our home. Thanks!

Hello. I recently read an article on the use of helical piers to support a deck install, vs traditional concrete footings. Because I despise digging, I'd like to do this. What would the cost be for 3 piers installed? Thanks Chad Robbins
Vicinity of Golf View Dr. in Galena
We have been in our house for 19 years and over the last few we have been getting water leakage around the support beams in the basement. We now have cracks in the floor and around one beam the concrete is chipping away. We would like to have someone look at the problem and tell us the cost to fix it.
