  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling

UltraSump Ensure Dry Basement for Home in Mount Vernon, IA

Toni was furious when the power went out and her basement flooded due to the lack of her sump not being able to work. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have a battery back-up system installed. An UltraSump was installed to aid in her already existing waterproofing system. The UltraSump not only works when the power goes out, but ensure that water will be discharged when circuits are tripped and when sump pumps fail. It also has an alert that alarms you when the backup system has kicked on. Toni no longer stresses during power failures thanks to the UltraSump Batter Back-up system.

Slab Settlement Addressed in Mount Vernon, IA

PolyLevel is a new start of the art approach to lifting and leveling sinking slabs. Similar to mudjacking, PolyLevel provides a better and more accurate solution. The lightweight polymer material fills voids and lifts concrete without the extra stress applied to the failed fill soil. Weighing less than 4 pounds per cubic foot, compared to the 120 pounds per cubic foot of mudjacking slurry, it can lift up to 4,000 pounds per square foot. The quick drying time allows for area usage after 15 minutes of injection rather than days after injection of mudjacking. PolyLevel is extremely accurate, over- or under-lifting is never a worry.

Water is seeping up from between basement walls and floor in the sump pump area. Sump pump is working but water is coming in from the top of the sump pump basin where it meets the floor. I don't know how much is coming from below basin but I'm pretty sure it should not be coming from the top.
