Job Stories From Jackson County, IA
Large Waterproofing Job Completed in Macomb

Mark and Donna were tired of dealing with an older dreary basement that also had a water problem. They have used MidAmerica Basement Systems before and decided to go to someone they trusted.

Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the basement. Mark decided the best solution for their particular basement was to have 2 SuperSump pumping systems, a full perimeter of the WaterGuard drainage system, along with new basement windows, and an egress window. Having the 2 SuperSump pumping systems is necessary for their larger basement space to make sure all the water is pumped out and away from the home. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will keep the water out of the entire basement in the case of future water troubles. The new basement windows also help keep the water out and the egress window adds an extra escape route for a legal living space.

Mark and Donna could not be happier with again choosing MidAmerica Basement Systems as their waterproofing specialist. They no longer have to worry about water in the basement and can now create a living space if they so choose.

Flood Proofed Basement in Bellevue, IA

Marsha is the homeowner of this Bellevue basement and was concerned with water coming into her basement. She was unsure where the water was coming from. She called MidAmerica Basement Systems expressing that sometimes the water seemed to be coming in from the walls whereas other times it seemed like the water was rising out of the floor. MidAmerica sent Joe Sarb out to inspect the home and explain the best solutions for Marsha's problems. Leading the MidAmerica team, was lead foreman Mike Clementz.

The team installed the patented 3 in 1 TripleSafe sump pumping system. The TripleSafe sump pump is a patented unit that comes equipped with the Waterwatch alarm system. The WaterWatch will warn Marsha if there is a problem which is also triggered if the UltruSump battery back-up system is activated. The UltraSump is the 3rd pump in the TripleSafe system which is designed to switch on in the event of a power outage. The team also installed the UltraSump Battery Switcher, which acts as a second battery to extend the battery pumping time.

Marsha's walls were waterproofed with CleanSpace Liner. An incredibly durable material comprised of 12 mil plastic infused with an antimicrobial additive, called UltraFresh, which wards off mold and bacteria. The CleanSpace is secured into a perimeter drainage system called WaterGuard. WaterGuard is installed to direct leaks away from Marsha's basement floors to the TripleSafe sump pump.

PolyLevel Fixes Uneven Driveway in Bellevue, IA

Uneven and sunken slabs become apparent when voids are present under concrete slabs. The voids can be caused by poor compacted fill soil that is laid before the initial concrete pour. Over time, the soil settles, creating the voids, causing the concrete to sink and shift. Injecting PolyLevel under the concrete, fills the voids to lift and stabilize the slabs. The lightweight PolyLevel weighs less the 4lbs per cubic foot, allowing for less stress on the weakened soil. PolyLevel highs a strong lifting and stabilizing ability, providing a longer-lasting solution to concrete lifting and leveling.
