PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Ogle home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

Revamping Waterproofing System for Home in Polo, IL

Steve and Deb were always stressing when it rained because their two sump pump systems only worked half the time. They were always afraid of taking vacation because they never knew what they were going to come home too. They finally had enough and made the call to MidAmerica Basement Systems. Both sumps were replaced with a SuperSump and UltraSump. The SuperSump acts as the primary pump, while the UltraSump is a battery back-up sump system, so even during power outages, water is still properly being discharged from the home.

WaterGuard is a drainage system that guides water to the sump system, and CleanSpace provides a moisture barrier, keeping the humidity levels down in your basement. Steve and Deb can now rest assure and take the much-needed vacation knowing their basement will stay dry under any amount of rain.
