Warren F. of Oelwein, IA decided he wanted to get his basement finished. He called MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate, and met with design specialist Joe Sarb. Joe and Warren worked together and designed a finished basement system, and Warren picked from many beautiful flooring options and other materials. In order to get the finishes added to the basement, though, the basement first needed to be waterproofed with a full perimeter WaterGuard. These pictures show before and after the WaterGuard is installed. Once the concrete dries, you'll never even know WaterGuard was installed!

The floors, walls, and ceiling are all made of waterproof, mold-resistant, inorganic materials - and they look really nice!

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

Unlike the average Oelwein 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.

Water Being Intercepted By WaterGuard in Oelwein, IA

Homeowner, Barb was having water come into her basement every time it would rain. She wanted her basement to stay clean and dry. She knew the forecast only called for more rain showers, so she thought it was time to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to come waterproof her home. Design Specialist, Wes was able to come out to Barb's home and give her the best recommendation that would fit her needs. WaterGuard was one of the systems that was installed in Barb's basement.

WaterGuard is a very reliable and effective way to solve basement water problems. It is installed around the perimeter of the basement floor and sits above the dirt. It can be installed with any type of foundation you may have. It will intercept any water that comes in and drain it safely, unseen away to the Sump Pump to be pumped out.

Barb will be able to have her basement back. She will once again be able to use her basement for storage or recreational purposes. If you too are having the same issue as Barb, do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We would be happy to help you!

Improving Basement Waterproofing System in Oelwein, IA

Dennis was having issues with water seeping in through his block foundation and surfacing to the floor, rather than reaching his sump pump. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his sump pump replaced. During his inspection it was addressed that his current sump pump was working just fine. It was proposed installing CleanSpace and WaterGuard to increase the effectiveness of his current system. CleanSpace was applied to the walls to prevent moisture from entering the basement, and guide the moisture to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard collects moisture and water that enters in the basement, and directs it to the sump pump to be properly discharged from the home. Dennis now has an effective and efficient waterproofing system in his basement.
