Leaking basements can cause a number of issues to your home. A home in Monticello had an issue with water leaking in the basement, causing dampness, even though there was a sump pump. A quick call to MidAmerica Basement Systems, crew members were able to fix the issue. They installed CleanSpace and WaterGuard to help direct any water to the sump pump. A SaniDry XP was also installed to help keep any extra moisture out of the air. Now water is properly discharged from the home, and air is dry.

Jason has been having issues with water pooling on his sidewalk due to sinking areas of the concrete. He was unsure how it would be fixed because it was a special and unique pour that had been designed just for his home. He contacted many concrete lifting companies for suggestions on how to fix the issue. Each company had a solution, but all had a downfall of large, discolored solutions that would distract the eye to the injected area. When Cole from MidAmerica Basement Systems arrived to offer him PolyLevel, Jason was still hesitant. Cole continued to discuss the PolyLevel solution with small 5/8th injection sites that are covered to match the rest of the concrete so the end result does not distract the eye. PolyLevel will also lift, level, and stabilize the sunken slab to prevent water from pooling in the area. The once 5-inch sunken concrete, no longer pools with water and is back to level.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Monticello, IA

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 :
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors
Unlike the average Monticello contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

Job Stories From Monticello, IA
Stopping Water Vapor From Spreading in Monticello, IA

A homeowner in Monticello, IA was having water getting into their crawlspace. This was causing a musty smelling odor that would then leak up into their home. They were tired of dealing with the smell and were more than ready to have it fixed. They contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems and Design Specialist, Justin was able to come out to take a look at their crawlspace. Justin recommended to keep the water and smell out of the crawlspace and home that total encapsulation with CleanSpace would fix the issue!

CleanSpace is a bright, clean, durable water vapor barrier for crawlspace or basement walls. It is a fast and economical wall to stop water from spreading continuously through the walls and will drain wall leaks. It is a permanent installation that is installed with drilled-in fasteners. It does have a washable surface, so if any marks happen to find their way onto the linear it can be washed off. If you have bumpy or stone walls the linear still can be installed because it can easily conform to the surface.

Now the homeowner has no worries in mind about their crawlspace knowing that CleanSpace is there to protect it from any water that tries to cross its path! If you too are looking to have your home waterproofed, do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We would be more than happy to send a Design Specialist out to come to take a look and give you a free, no-obligation estimate. Contact us today!

Lifting Sinking Sidewalk in Monticello, IA

Jason was noticing large sinking area in the sidewalk to the entrance of his home, and was concerned on how he would have it fixed. The whole area was a solid poured slab that was uniquely poured for his home, and reconstructing the area with a whole new re-pour would cost thousands of dollars. Jason talked with design specialist, Cole from MidAmerica Basement Systems, and was proposed a solution that would not ruin or cost him an arm and a leg. PolyLevel uses polymers to inject under the concrete to fill the voids. Once the voids are filled, the PolyLevel expands to lift and level the sunken concrete, without damaging the rest of the concrete slab. The once sinking sidewalk to Jason’s home, is now level and stable like the first time it was poured.

WaterGuard and CleanSpace help Waterproof Basement in Monticello, IA

Homeowner Verna was having a small issue of water entering her basement. She had a sump pump, but no way for the water to reach it. She made a call to MidAmerica Basement Systems for help. The Experts installed CleanSpace along the leaking wall to help direct the water in the right direction. WaterGuard was then installed as a path to the sump pump. WaterGuard also helps direct water that may come in from the floor foundation of the home. Now any water can be properly discharged from Verna’s home.

Just bought this house a month ago. It was completely remodeled and re done. I noticed he put some cement in basement to help reinforce the stone faundation. I noticed now there is a crack in the cement. The door to the basement now rubs on the kitchen floor. I'm worried about the stone foundation. If you look at the back of the house it looks like the house is bowing inwards. Looking to see what needs done to make it safe.

We have a leak along 2 of our foundation walls through a crack running the entire length of the wall, and we may want to add egress windows at this time as well.
Vicinity of in Monticello
Water comes in between walls and floor also through some of the cement blocks that make up the foundation. We have a sump but it is probably not big enough. No backup sump so last week when we lost power, basement backed up. One drain doesn't drain well when lots of water is flowing in ditch near road. Assuming a broken tile. We sit at the bottom of a good slope and the front yard is below road level. We are currently getting estimates from contractors and educating ourselves. Thanks!
