|Why Choose Us?
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 :
Foundation problems such as bowing foundation walls destroy your Jackson home’s value and can be dangerous. Our in-house team of structural and geo-technical engineers are here to help. We design and install the right solution and usually have the project finished in less than a week. You will have peace of mind as we provide a 25-year written warranty against defects on our foundation products.
The sunken and cracked concrete around your Jackson home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.
Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

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.
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.

The drainage lateral is installed underneath the basement floor to get unwanted water to travel to the SuperSump. The SuperSump pumping system is a single sump pump that will take the water up and safely away from the home.

Michael L. of Preston was having issues with water leaking into his basement when it rained. He knew a sump pump system would help discharge water from his basement, but wasn’t sure what would be best in his condition. He called the experts of MidAmerica Basement Systems to get the appropriate help he desired. It was suggested that Michael have a TripleSafe Sump installed, along with WaterGuard and a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. The TripleSafe Sump offers a battery backup system if there were to be a power outage. WaterGuard prevents water from puddling in the basement and directs water to the sump pump. The SaniDry XP dehumidifier removes any excess moister in the air, to provide a dry environment. Michael can breathe easy now that his basement will stay dry during any type of rainfall now.
Michael of Preston was concerned about the cracks in his basement because every time it rained they leaked. He made a call to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have the issue addressed. Crew members inspected his situation, and concurred that his issue was from the corners of the basement foundation rather than the cracks. The crew got to work and installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement to direct water to the sump pump, rather than seeping through the cracks on the floor. A TripleSafe sump was installed so water could properly be discharged from the home, and a SaniDry XP was installed to retracted any moisture that was in the air. Michael now has a dry basement and no longer has to worry about the rain.
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.

Thanks to the MidAmerica Basement Systems Team, we were happy to help them out! Design Specialist, Justin was able to come out and give him an estimate and explain how the installation will go and Installer, Brandon and his team were able to install the PolyLevel System.

It expands in a controlled way and then the hole is sealed off. It causes no disturbance to the concrete and is environmentally friendly.
After fifteen minutes of installation, the concrete is once again able to be used. It will not only restore your home's property value but also will bring you peace of mind right away!
