This homeowner in East Peoria was fed up with water leaking through their ground level windows. Theu had tried other solutions, but the material was weak and unreliable. The owners decided they needed an efficient and durable solution that was also aesthetically pleasing.

They called up the team at MidAmerica Basement Systems and set up an appointment for Mark Kurtz, a MidAmerica Basement Systems expert, to come out and inspect their home. The homeowners were excited about the project and with Robert Stoutenberg leading the team, they installed the SunHouse waterproofing system in place of the unsightly window covering from before. Now the home owners have leak free window dressings that are sturdy AND that allow an abundance of natural light into their basement.

Bowing Wall Repaired in Moline, IL

Mark, a Moline, IL homeowner, had his home waterproofed by MidAmerica Basement Systems previously. When he was having one of his annual services performed, service technician Gary noticed that Mark had a bowing wall in his basement. Gary suggested tha Mark have the bowing wall repaired before the problem got even worse. The solution was to have eight PowerBraces installed along the wall, which will stabilize the wall and potentially correct the bow overtime. Foreman Pete Hensler and his team installed the braces, and now Mark's foundation wall is protected from further bowing. Mark is very happy.

Basement Waterproofing Completed in Cedar Rapids, IA

Mark and Debra H. of Cedar Rapids had a lot of water coming into their basement during heavy rainstorms. Knowing that no amount of water intrusion is good, and the problem would only get worse, they called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate with a trained design specialist. They met with specialist Dustin Shepard at their Cedar Rapids home to discuss how their basement could stay dry. The solution that Dustin designed would keep the basement dry for many years to come!

Foreman Kyle McCarty and team went to the home to install patented products. Sub-floor drainage system, WaterGuard, was installed along with a new SuperSump sump pump, and CleanSpace Vapor Barrier.

SuperSump Safeguards Basement in Aledo, IL

Mark B. is the homeowner of this basement in Aledo was concerned about water coming into his basement whenever it would rain. Mark was especially worried because the basement was somewhat finished so he wasn't sure what area to expose to find the source of the seepage so he called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems.

The team installed the SuperSump system which is a patented system that can be fitted with the cast iron zoeller pump the space would need. The SuperSump comes with an airtight lid and airtight drain which allow water to drain but does not allow water vapor to rise back into the space. The lid also prevents debris from falling into the sump jeopardizing the function of the sump. WaterWatch also comes with the SuperSump to alert Mark of issues that may arise.

The team constructed a discharge line and connected it to the LawnScape to expel water out of the space. The team also installed the IceGuard which will repel water away from the foundation walls in the case of a pipe freezing. Now Mark has fewer worries when he sees a cloud in the sky!

SuperSump and WaterGuard Protects Basement in Geneseo, IL

Vicki and Kermit, are the homeowners of this Geneseo basement. They wanted to secure the space from water damage and soon called on the team at MidAmerica Basement Systems. MidAmerica worked with the homeowners schedule and set an appointment for a free inspection. The expert, Mark Kurtz, came out and assessed the space, then quoted the homeowners the same day at no cost to them. Soon the MidAmerica team was hard at work providing these homeowners with a dry, waterproofed basement.

The team installed the SuperSump pumping system that is powerful, efficient and comes with an alarm system that alerts the homeowners of any issues. The homeowners also wanted a back-up system in case the power goes out, so MidAmerica installed the UltraSump, which is a dual battery switching unit that can pump upwards of 12,000 gallon in the event of a flood or major leak.

Lead by Justin Bailey, the team further waterproofed the space by equipping the WaterGuard waterproofing system, which leads leaks directly to SuperSump pump system. This basement owner has a basement prepared for rainy days and other unexpected leaks!

MidAmerica appreciates Vicki and Kermit’s business and is happy to have been of service!

Radon Defense in Sparland

Richard was dealing with a little bit of everything in his basement from water, bowing walls, but his main concern was the radon levels. He remembered seeing MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call for a free estimate.

Shortly after calling them, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the issues in the basement. Mark decided the best solution for Richard’s high radon levels was to install a new radon mitigation system. The radon mitigation system will calculate the radon levels in the home and take the radon out and away from the home.

Richard is extremely happy with the work and professionalism of MidAmerica Basement Systems. He no longer has to worry about the radon levels in his home.

Egress Window Installed for a Streator Home

Betty recently had work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. She was also interested in an egress window, so she called for a free estimate.

After a short phone call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come see if an egress window was possible. Mark decided an egress window was possible and believed the StakWEL egress system would be the best fit. The StakWEL egress system is the only option for a customer looking for the best egress window.

Basement Brightened in East Peoria

Michael and Shirley were having a water problem on one side of their home and wanted to see if it could be fixed. They also wanted to replace their existing windows with some type of window well. They were referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems to get a free estimate on their basement.

After a short phone call, an appointment was set up with Mark Kurtz to come evaluate the basement. Mark decided the best solution for their specific problem was to install a SuperSump pumping system and WaterGuard around the wall with the water issue. The SuperSump pumping system will pump any water up and away from the home. The WaterGuard will direct the water to the SuperSump to be pumped out. Mark also showed them the SunHouse window well, which will allow more sunlight in the basement but also keep the water out. They loved the idea of the SunHouse.

Michael and Shirley are very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. They now have a bright and dry living space downstairs.

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.

Foundation Supported in East Peoria

Payne and Teresa were having structural issues in their home, which they were trying to sell. They saw MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call.

After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come and diagnose the issues. Mark decided the best solution for the basement was to have Power Braces and CleanSpace installed. The Power Braces are mounted up against the wall to prevent it from caving in and also push the wall back over time to get back to its upright position. The CleanSpace walling system is put against the wall to give it a cleaner, less “basementy” fell.

Payne and Teresa are very happy to have the foundation of their home repaired. They can now sell their house with an increased value because of the work MidAmerica Basement Systems did.

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.

Basement Now Stays Dry in Chillicothe, IL

Vicky has lived in her house for several years and continued to have a water problem in her basement. She finally had enough and went online in search of professional help. She found MidAmerica Basement Systems right away and wanted to learn more.

She was very pleased to find out the estimate was free and the appointment was set up right away. Mark Kurtz, a trained design specialist, was sent to Vicky’s house and after a thorough inspection he came up with a customized solution for her specific problem. He proposed a WaterGuard drainage channel that would unnoticably direct the water to the TripleSafe pumping system that was also going to be installed. The humidity was a little high in her home as well, so Mark proposed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep mold from growing in the basement. After Mark went over how the whole process worked with Vicky, she was sold and got the appointment scheduled.
