Tom noticed a large drop between his garage and driveway, making it a rough transition from the driveway into his garage. He contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to get an estimate on how to lift and level his sunken driveway. During evaluation, Bryan suggested injecting PolyLevel to fix his issue. Small holes were drilled into the concrete, and injected with PolyLevel to fill the voids that had caused the driveway to originally sink. Once the voids were filled, the PolyLevel expanded to lift to concrete to its original height. Tom now has a smooth transition to his garage, rather than a 2inch bump.

PolyLevel injections can help lift sunken concrete slabs, leveling them back to their original state. Small dime-sized holes are drilled into the concrete, poly ports are then placed along the holes. Polymers are injected into the ports, mixing with a reactive resin, to expand and fill the voids. After all voids are filled, PolyLevel lifts the concrete, precisely leveling the slabs. The lightweight material offers less stress on the ground underneath the slabs, preventing future sinking. PolyLevel can help repair all types of sinking concrete: driveways, sidewalks, patios and pool decks, stoops, porches, concrete steps, interior floor slabs, and additions.

Carl was concerned for his neighbors who take their daily walks around the block because of the uneven sidewalk in front of his home. He thought about having the concrete re-poured but realized it could take weeks on end to tear it up and repour the sidewalk. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to see what kind of solution they had to offer. Cole introduced Carl to PolyLevel. PolyLevel is made of high-density polymers that are injected under the slabs to lift and level the concrete. The quick reaction times allows for the slabs to be level once again in minutes, providing the permanent stabilization they need. PolyLevel also has a quick cure time that allows for the sidewalk to be accessed within minutes after application, so Carl’s neighbors can continue their walks without the worry of tripping hazards.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Hiawatha, IA

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home.

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 Hiawatha 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.

Clean and Dry Crawlspace Encapsulation in Hiawatha, IA

Homeowner Angela has lived in her home for the last year. Her home was built in 1956 and she first noticed the crawlspace when she moved into the home. The crawlspace worried her because it was dirty and had a little bit of water. She wanted to make sure that her home was safe and protected. She plans to live in this home forever and she wanted to make sure that she never had to worry. The crawlspace was fully encapsulated with CleanSpace. CleanSpace is similar to a thick pool liner and will make sure that the home has a watertight barrier. Encapsulating the crawlspace will make sure that the home will be water free and also make sure that the home is free of insects and rodents.

Concrete Repair in Hiawatha, IA

Homeowners Jim and Kitty have lied in their 1950's home for the last 13 years. Over time they slowly started to notice that the concrete slabs outside of their home were cracking and breaking. The shifting slabs were a trip hazard and an eyesore.  The decision to seek professional advice came when they heard about the PolyLevel foam that we offer. The foam is injected under the concrete slab. The foam then expands and then hardens to lift and level the slab.

Smoother Driveway Transition for Property in Hiawatha, IA

At the end of Carl’s driveway, the concrete had sunk, making the transition between the driveway and road a little rough. He had asked around for solution and had heard of the new injection technology from MidAmerica Basement Systems. PolyLevel is a state-of-the-art technology that takes common mudjacking techniques, and uses modern knowledge and materials to lift and level sunken concrete. Small 3/8th inch holes are drilled into the concrete to inject the PolyLevel. Once the solution is injection, the voids that have caused the sinking are filled. The PolyLevel expands and raises the slabs with precise and accurate lifts, leveling the concrete for a smoother transition. Carl can now feel confident when he drives his car over the end of his driveway.

In heavy rains water in basement coming in where floor meets wall. house is a tri level and the seepage in coming in where the family room ends. In other words, the wall is not an exterior wall
Vicinity of GREY WOLF CT in Hiawatha
So I get water at the base of a wall in my basement living area with almost every rain. I would like an estimate to tear into the sheet rock and find the leak, seal it, and take care of any mold issues, and replace the sheet rock and finish the wall back up.
Vicinity of Raney St in Hiawatha
Driveway runs directly next to the house and water is collecting by house instead of running down driveway. We fixed the gutters/downspouts that created this issue originally. Also have a retaining wall next to part of the driveway with steps leading to the front door that have sunk possibly. Thanks for your time. I'd be happy to provide photos and measurements if that is any easier for you.

Radon testing and a abatement if needed. Backup for sump pump and a Leak in foundation. (poured wall)
Vicinity of in Hiawatha
Hi, I am a Realtor who has a buyer looking at purchasing this property. The city building inspector called out "foundation wall at south side of dwelling failing, no longer supports entire length of exterior wall." during a recent rental inspection. My buyer is wanting to get a bid on what it would cost to have this done prior to making an offer on the property. The property does not have a basement, just a crawl space. Is this something you would be willing to do?

We are a dental office and we are having water issues in our basement.

I need my sump pump properly hooked up to the french drain along the curb of my street. That probably includes a new sump pump hook up. There probably needs to be some tiling done to the yard also. I already have my garage tiled & hooked up. But I'm not sure if it's deep enough to prevent freezing. Thanks
