Basement Finishing & Remodeling in La Salle County, Illinois

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

Job Stories From La Salle County, IL
Push Pier Wall Support in Peru

Emily noticed some vertical cracks in her basement foundation, where she was also getting some water. She was referred by a past customer to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate.

After a quick call to the office, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come evaluate the basement. Mark decided the best solution for the specific foundation problem was to install Power Braces along one wall and Push Piers on the other wall. The Power Braces go along the inside of the foundation wall and not only keep the wall from caving in further, but also begin to push the wall back to its upright position. The Push Piers go along the outside of the wall and are used to fix sagging foundations. The Push Piers are driven deep into the ground to stabilize and lift a home’s foundation back into place. Mark’s solution for the water problem was to install a SuperSump pumping system with WaterGuard along the problematic wall. The SuperSump pumping system will pump the water out and away from the home and the WaterGuard will direct that water to the SuperSump.

Emily is very happy with the experience of MidAmerica Basement Systems. There is no longer a worry of the basement or foundation having any more issues.

Crack Injection in Marseilles, IL

Leaks in concrete structures are a problem that homeowners have struggled with for decades. Frustrated homeowners and professionals have tried to stop the water and leaking with sealers and patches of various kinds however they have had no luck. MidAmerica Basement Systems now proudly offer Chemical Injection. Chemical injection is a process in which a special polyurethane resin is injected into a crack hole, joint or another opening in concrete.

First holes are drilled in the wall at a 45-degree angle to cross the crack halfway through the wall. Then, special high-pressure injection ports are securely installed into the wall. Next. the poly resin is pumped into the cracks or joints. The appearance of the sealant on the inside is a positive indication of its migration all the way through the crack. After the resin is pumped into the wall the ports are removed and the holes are filled. For a nice appearance, a cement coating is applied. It is important that the repair not is affected by the wall movement as a solid.
