Bowing walls can lead to water leakage and unstable foundation for your home. With help from MidAmerica Basement Systems, we offer permanent solutions to stop bowing walls all together, while providing a stable foundation. To address the leaking, CleanSpace is often applied against the wall. This provides a moisture barrier between the wall and basement, and is directed towards a drainage system. One option for stabilizing the walls is a PowerBrace system. The patented tightening, I-Beam system not only permanently stops the wall from worsening, but can offer the opportunity to straighten the wall back to its original state over time.

A homeowner in Oelwein, IA was working on having their basement finished after having their basement waterproofed. They wanted a subflooring to create a space that they could use for recreational or storage purposes.

TheremalDry Basement Flooring Systems is the answer. It comes in four great styles: carpet, parquet wood, tile, and unfinished. It transforms your cold, damp flooring into a beautiful, comfortable space. It is designed with pegs at the bottom of each tile. This allows the flooring to sit above the concrete allowing it to breathe. Since it creates a subfloor the flooring cannot rot, grow mold, or get damaged from a water leak. If anything would happen to a tile it can be easily removed to be replaced.

Now the homeowner will not only enjoy their new waterproofing system, but also the great new, stylish flooring they had installed. If you too are looking to have your home waterproofed or have your basement finished, do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We would be happy to send a Design Specialist out to come to give you a free, no-obligation estimate. Contact us today!

Vicinity of Terrace Dr in Independence
Found a 3/16" - 1/4" vertical crack in my basement wall. It appears that the wall is pushed in approx 1/4" over the vertical span. It appears this is an old crack, not sure as it's been covered by paneling since construction in 1962. Interested in the "Reinforcer" product to address this issue.
Vicinity of in Independence
Wet basement, cement block that is damp most of the spring. There is a sump pump but it still is damp. Windows probably need replacement and possibly need window wells. I assume the basement walls need to be painted with waterproff paint. The house is currently vacant but it will be rented in March or April. I would like to make an appointment to meet someone there for an estimate. Thank you.
