Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Pekin, IL

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 Pekin 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.

After choosing to get their basement waterproofed with MidAmerica Basement Systems, Diane and Betty decided to give their basement a more finished look, while making it warmer, too.

Fixing an Uneven Driveway in North Pekin, IL

Charlie D. had some settling in his driveway and wanted it to be fixed, permanently. He called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems to come give a free estimate.

After a short phone call, an appointment was set up with Dan Garner to come evaluate the driveway. Dan decided the best solution was to raise the concrete back up to its original position using PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a process of raising concrete with a foam substance in a very technical way to make sure the foam raises the concrete in the right positions and the right height.

Charlie D. is very happy to have a level driveway again, thanks to the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems. He would recommend them to anyone who is having some settlement issues.

WaterGuard Installation in Pekin, IL

Donna and Perry B. were done trying to deal with their basement water problems every time it would rain. They heard about MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call for a free in-home estimate.

Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up with Kevin Coakley to come out and evaluate their basement. Kevin decided the best solution for their particular situation was to install a TripleSafe pumping system and a full perimeter of WaterGuard. The WaterGuard is a channeling system that will take in the water and transport it to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe pumping system is the best in the business when it comes to getting all of the water up, out, and safely away from the home.

Donna and Perry B. are extremely happy to no longer have to deal with water in their basement or worrying every time there is a storm. They now have a water free basement for many years to come, thanks to MidAmerica Basement Systems.

Full Basement Waterproofing in Pekin, IL

Jason and Jamie J. were tired of dealing with their water problems in their basement. They found MidAmerica Basement Systems online and decided to call for help and a free estimate.

Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up with Kevin Coakley to come evaluate the basement. Kevin concluded the best solution for their home’s specific water problem was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, Basement to Beautiful Panels, ZenWall, and WaterGuard installed. The WaterGuard is a channel in the home that channels the water to the TripleSafe pumping system, which will take the water up, out, and away from the home. The Basement to Beautiful Panels and ZenWall are walling systems that give the basement a finished look, but also block the water from the walls down to the WaterGuard.

Jason and Jamie J. have been extremely happy with the work MidAmerica Basement Systems did. Their basement will now be water free for many years to come.
