Homeowner Pier has recently contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to learn more about basement waterproofing options. They had a full perimeter waterproofing system installed in their home.

Nexus Pro and PolyLevel in Galesburg, IL

Homeowner Brian has lived in his home for many years and over time he noticed the driveway and patio area of his home were cracking and sinking. They were interested in having MidAmerica Basement Systems repair all of their concrete.

The polyurethane foam is injected under the concrete. The foam fills the void that was causing the sinking. The void is filled and after the foam starts to expand it lifts the concrete. After the concrete has been lifted Nexus Pro is used to seal all of the joints.

Crawlspace Now Dry in Galesburg, IL

Homeowner Christine has lived in her home for a few years and in that time she noticed the crawlspace under the home was wet and was starting to get mold. She wanted the crawlspace in her home to be free of water and avoid potential damage. After a full inspection of the inside and the outside of her home, she made the decision to have her crawlspace encapsulated. The CleanSpace system is similar to a thick pool liner. The liner creates a barrier along the walls that will keep water out. By encapsulating the home to keep moisture and mold out, you can also keep bug and rodents from getting in.

Concrete Repair in Galesburg, IL

Homeowner Charles and Elaine have lived in their home since it was built in 1976. For several years they have noticed that the concrete around their pool has been cracking and sinking and has been getting progressively worse every year.  Small ports are inserted into the concrete slabs where the foam will be pumped under the concrete. The foam is injected under the slab and fills the void under the slab that is causing the sinking and cracking. The foam expands into the void and hardens causing the concrete slab to lift and level.

Exterior Wall is Stabilized with Helical Pier for Property in Galesburg, IL

Mike has a brick retaining wall that is connected to a main portion of the house, and due to the settling of the ground under the brick wall.

PowerBraces Stabilize; WaterGuard Waterproofs In Galesburg, IL

Kristi B. of Galesburg, IL initially called MidAmerica Basement Systems because the walls were bowing. She also noticed that water was leaking through cracks on the walls and at the floor joint. Krisit met with design specialist Dan Garner, who offered her solutions for both problems. 

To stabilize the bowing walls, Dan suggested PowerBraces. The bow required nine braces to stabilize the walls. To waterproof the basement, Dan suggested top-of-the-line TripleSafe Sump Pump, equipped with three pumps and a back up battery, to work with the existing sump pump. Full perimeter sub-floor drainage system, WaterGuard, was also installed in the space, along with a buried discharge line, equipped with two IceGuard attachments, which allow for the water to exit even if the discharge pipe freezes.

Kendra B. of Galesburg, IL noticed water coming in through the foundation of her condo. She decided to give the local experts, MidAmerica Bassement Systems, a call.

Clean and Dry Basement in Galesburg, IL

Gregory and Linda had a water problem in their basement for too long and decided to make a call for help. They called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.

After voicing their problem, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come out and evaluate their basement. Mac decided the best solution for their particular water problem was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, BrightWall, and a full perimeter of WaterGuard installed. The WaterGuard is a trenching system done in the home to channel the water to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the best in the business when it comes to pumping all of the water up, out, and safely away from the home. The BrightWall is exactly what its name describes, a bright wall. It gives the basement a clean and finished look, while also blocking water from the wall down to the WaterGuard system to be pumped out by the TripleSafe.

Gregory and Linda have been very happy with their new worry free basement. It will now be dry for many years to come.
