Old Basement Now Dry and in Marion, IA

Homeowner Katie has lived in her home for many years. She recently contacted MidAmerica Basement System to learn more about having the water issue in her home address. Her basement was very old and needed serious help. A design specialist did a full inspection of the inside and outside of the home. After all of his findings, he educated the homeowner about what we could do to make their home safe. A full perimeter waterproofing system was installed around all of the exterior walls of the home. The WaterGuard system will move the water like a channeling system to a sump pump where the sump pump will pump the water out of the home.

Crawlspace Encapsulation in Marion, IA

Homeowner Judy recently had MidAmerica Basement Sytems encapsulated her crawlspace. Encapsulation of your crawlspace makes sure that the crawlspace stays clean and dry. Encapsulation can also help with mold prevention. First, the crawlspace is leveled and cleared. Drainage matting is added to the floor so that water can drain properly. Then CleanSpace is added to the walls to keep a watertight barrier. CleanSpace is similar to a thick pool liner that works to keep water out. It also helps with keeping out unwanted rodents and insects that may also get into your home.

Leveling Sinking Concrete with Injection Technologies in Marion, IA

Corinne had noticed her concrete driveway and sidewalk has begun to sink, leaving the area unsafe to walk on. She had heard about MidAmerica Basement Systems’ injection technology, PolyLevel. Small 5/8th sized holes were drilled into the concrete to inject the PolyLevel to fill the voids, and lift the concrete. The quick drying time had the area stabilized in minutes, reducing the tripping hazards. After PolyLevel was injected, the driveway and sidewalk was sealed with NexusPro. NexusPro helps prevent future washouts, extending the life of the concrete slabs.

Basements are cold and damp, making them unpleasant to be in. Installing the right insulation can be tricky due to the damp concrete walls. MidAmerica Basement Systems offers special basement insulation called Foamax that will not be damaged by moisture! The foam boards are made of polyisocyanurate, giving the insulation one of the high R-values available. Foamax not only insulated the basement to make the area warmer and energy efficient, it also provides a bright, clean look.

Creating an Effective Waterproof System for Home in Marion, IA

Bryan was looking to turn his basement into an entertainment area, but was nervous about putting the time and money into it due to his leaking foundation walls. He had a sump pump, but didn’t seem to be very effective when water was reaching the surface of his floor. When a representative from MidAmerica Basement Systems arrived at his home, it was suggested installing CleanSpace and WaterGuard to address the leaking walls. CleanSpace provides a moisture barrier between his wall and basement, sealing out unwanted moisture. Along the base of the walls, WaterGuard was installed to collect the water running off the walls. After entering the WaterGuard, water is properly directed to the sump pump where it is properly discharged from the home. Now with a fully waterproofed basement, Bryan can continue to finish his basement without the worry of water damage.

Settled Driveway is Raised in Marion, IA

Neil had noticed that his driveway had settled about two inches lower than his garage slab. He had previously had work down with MidAmerica Basement Systems and reached out to them again. Over time, the fill soil under the concrete driveway had settled, creating voids under them, this then caused the driveway to become unlevel with the garage slab. A specialist suggested using PolyLevel to help lift the concrete slabs back to their original height. Now Neil’s transition from garage to driveway is smooth and unnoticeable.

Our Waterproofing System in Marion, IA

Clayton S. would get water in his basement every time there was a heavy rain. He was tired of dealing with the water problems so he called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.

Dustin Shepard was the design specialist sent out to look at Clayton’s basement. Dustin decided the best solution for this particular situation was to install SuperSump pumping system and a full perimeter WaterGuard system. The WaterGuard system is designed to channel the water to the SuperSump. The SuperSump pumping system is a great choice to get all of the water pumped up, out, and safely away from the home.

Clayton S. is extremely happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. He has a dry and worry-free basement for years to come.
