Sue B. purchased an older home and noticed water coming in the basement. She wanted an interior solution rather than having her yard torn apart. She did some research on the internet and found MidAmerica Basement Systems was the best fit for her.
The call center listened to Sue’s problem and sent out Mark Kurtz, a trained design specialist, to further inspect the issue. Mark proposed a custom solution to fix the issue which included a TripleSafe pumping system and a full perimeter of WaterGuard. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will filter the water to the TripleSafe pumping system, where it will be pumped out of the home a safe distance away.
Sue B. was extremely happy she was able to fix her water problem without having to dig up the outside of her home. Her basement is now dry and will be for many years, she now has no worries about the basement being wet after it rains.
There was water in Tina and Jeremy H.’s basement every time it rained. Looking for a solution on the internet, they found MidAmerica Basement Systems and decided to give them a call to fix their water problem.
After a short amount of time on the phone, an appointment was set up to have a trained design specialist, Mark Kurtz, come out and diagnose the issue. Mark decided the best solution was to install a WaterGuard drainage channel that would direct the water to the SuperSump pumping system that was also being installed. The SuperSump pumping system takes the water from the WaterGuard and pumps it out of the house through a discharge line, which will take it a safe distance away from the home.
Tina and Jeremy H. had their basement waterproofing done at the beginning of 2015 and through all the storms, have not had any water problems. They are very happy with the decision to choose MidAmerica Basement Systems to waterproof their basement, they are now worry free when it rains.
Vicky has lived in her house for several years and continued to have a water problem in her basement. She finally had enough and went online in search of professional help. She found MidAmerica Basement Systems right away and wanted to learn more.
She was very pleased to find out the estimate was free and the appointment was set up right away. Mark Kurtz, a trained design specialist, was sent to Vicky’s house and after a thorough inspection he came up with a customized solution for her specific problem. He proposed a WaterGuard drainage channel that would unnoticably direct the water to the TripleSafe pumping system that was also going to be installed. The humidity was a little high in her home as well, so Mark proposed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep mold from growing in the basement. After Mark went over how the whole process worked with Vicky, she was sold and got the appointment scheduled.
Vicky’s basement was completed by MidAmerica Basement Systems in the middle of 2012 and it continues to stay completely dry to this day. She could not be happier with her decision in choosing MidAmerica Basement Systems and now has no worries about water when it rains.
Adam and Diana had very noticeable cracks in their basements foundation walls and wanted to get help before it was too late. They found MidAmerica Basement Systems in the local Yellow Pages.
Shortly after calling the office, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come give a free estimate on their basement. Mark decided the best solution for the cracked and bowing walls was to have Power Braces put up along the foundation. The Power Brace system will stop the wall from caving in any further and also progressively move the wall back to its original position.
Mark and Donna were tired of dealing with an older dreary basement that also had a water problem. They have used MidAmerica Basement Systems before and decided to go to someone they trusted.
Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the basement. Mark decided the best solution for their particular basement was to have 2 SuperSump pumping systems, a full perimeter of the WaterGuard drainage system, along with new basement windows, and an egress window. Having the 2 SuperSump pumping systems is necessary for their larger basement space to make sure all the water is pumped out and away from the home. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will keep the water out of the entire basement in the case of future water troubles. The new basement windows also help keep the water out and the egress window adds an extra escape route for a legal living space.
Mark and Donna could not be happier with again choosing MidAmerica Basement Systems as their waterproofing specialist. They no longer have to worry about water in the basement and can now create a living space if they so choose.
Payne and Teresa were having structural issues in their home, which they were trying to sell. They saw MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call.
After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come and diagnose the issues. Mark decided the best solution for the basement was to have Power Braces and CleanSpace installed. The Power Braces are mounted up against the wall to prevent it from caving in and also push the wall back over time to get back to its upright position. The CleanSpace walling system is put against the wall to give it a cleaner, less “basementy” fell.
Payne and Teresa are very happy to have the foundation of their home repaired. They can now sell their house with an increased value because of the work MidAmerica Basement Systems did.
Emily noticed some vertical cracks in her basement foundation, where she was also getting some water. She was referred by a past customer to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate.
After a quick call to the office, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come evaluate the basement. Mark decided the best solution for the specific foundation problem was to install Power Braces along one wall and Push Piers on the other wall. The Power Braces go along the inside of the foundation wall and not only keep the wall from caving in further, but also begin to push the wall back to its upright position. The Push Piers go along the outside of the wall and are used to fix sagging foundations. The Push Piers are driven deep into the ground to stabilize and lift a home’s foundation back into place. Mark’s solution for the water problem was to install a SuperSump pumping system with WaterGuard along the problematic wall. The SuperSump pumping system will pump the water out and away from the home and the WaterGuard will direct that water to the SuperSump.
Emily is very happy with the experience of MidAmerica Basement Systems. There is no longer a worry of the basement or foundation having any more issues.
Michael and Shirley were having a water problem on one side of their home and wanted to see if it could be fixed. They also wanted to replace their existing windows with some type of window well. They were referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems to get a free estimate on their basement.
After a short phone call, an appointment was set up with Mark Kurtz to come evaluate the basement. Mark decided the best solution for their specific problem was to install a SuperSump pumping system and WaterGuard around the wall with the water issue. The SuperSump pumping system will pump any water up and away from the home. The WaterGuard will direct the water to the SuperSump to be pumped out. Mark also showed them the SunHouse window well, which will allow more sunlight in the basement but also keep the water out. They loved the idea of the SunHouse.
Michael and Shirley are very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. They now have a bright and dry living space downstairs.
Betty recently had work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. She was also interested in an egress window, so she called for a free estimate.
After a short phone call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come see if an egress window was possible. Mark decided an egress window was possible and believed the StakWEL egress system would be the best fit. The StakWEL egress system is the only option for a customer looking for the best egress window.
Betty is very happy to have an egress window in her home. She was extremely pleased with the work done by MidAmerica Basement System and would recommend them to anyone looking for an egress window.
Richard was dealing with a little bit of everything in his basement from water, bowing walls, but his main concern was the radon levels. He remembered seeing MidAmerica Basement Systems at the Peoria Home Show and decided to give them a call for a free estimate.
Shortly after calling them, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the issues in the basement. Mark decided the best solution for Richard’s high radon levels was to install a new radon mitigation system. The radon mitigation system will calculate the radon levels in the home and take the radon out and away from the home.
Richard is extremely happy with the work and professionalism of MidAmerica Basement Systems. He no longer has to worry about the radon levels in his home.
Vicki and Kermit, are the homeowners of this Geneseo basement. They wanted to secure the space from water damage and soon called on the team at MidAmerica Basement Systems. MidAmerica worked with the homeowners schedule and set an appointment for a free inspection. The expert, Mark Kurtz, came out and assessed the space, then quoted the homeowners the same day at no cost to them. Soon the MidAmerica team was hard at work providing these homeowners with a dry, waterproofed basement.
The team installed the SuperSump pumping system that is powerful, efficient and comes with an alarm system that alerts the homeowners of any issues. The homeowners also wanted a back-up system in case the power goes out, so MidAmerica installed the UltraSump, which is a dual battery switching unit that can pump upwards of 12,000 gallon in the event of a flood or major leak.
Lead by Justin Bailey, the team further waterproofed the space by equipping the WaterGuard waterproofing system, which leads leaks directly to SuperSump pump system. This basement owner has a basement prepared for rainy days and other unexpected leaks!
MidAmerica appreciates Vicki and Kermit’s business and is happy to have been of service!
Mark B. is the homeowner of this basement in Aledo was concerned about water coming into his basement whenever it would rain. Mark was especially worried because the basement was somewhat finished so he wasn't sure what area to expose to find the source of the seepage so he called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems.
The team installed the SuperSump system which is a patented system that can be fitted with the cast iron zoeller pump the space would need. The SuperSump comes with an airtight lid and airtight drain which allow water to drain but does not allow water vapor to rise back into the space. The lid also prevents debris from falling into the sump jeopardizing the function of the sump. WaterWatch also comes with the SuperSump to alert Mark of issues that may arise.
The team constructed a discharge line and connected it to the LawnScape to expel water out of the space. The team also installed the IceGuard which will repel water away from the foundation walls in the case of a pipe freezing. Now Mark has fewer worries when he sees a cloud in the sky!
Davenport homeowners, Sandy and Terry C., realized they needed to make the air in their home safe and radon-free. They contacted the local experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems.

La Moille, IL homeowners, Mark and Lenora, called MidAmerica Basement Systems when they started noticing water coming in through the bottom of their basement walls. They met with design specialist Dan Garner, who conducted an investigation of the inside and outside of the home. Following Dan's investigation, he created a custom designed solution to fit their needs and wants.
Foreman Justin Reger led his team through the install of patented sub-floor drainage system, WaterGuard.

Mark, a Moline, IL homeowner, had his home waterproofed by MidAmerica Basement Systems previously. When he was having one of his annual services performed, service technician Gary noticed that Mark had a bowing wall in his basement. Gary suggested tha Mark have the bowing wall repaired before the problem got even worse. The solution was to have eight PowerBraces installed along the wall, which will stabilize the wall and potentially correct the bow overtime. Foreman Pete Hensler and his team installed the braces, and now Mark's foundation wall is protected from further bowing. Mark is very happy.

Leaking basements can lead to a lot of stress, and when you have a garage that does the same, it leads to even more stress. Installing a waterproofing system from MidAmerica Basement Systems can help ease the stress of a wet home. In one situation, homeowner Jon had two TripleSafe sumps installed due to leaking foundation cracks. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement and garage to keep water from surfacing. Thanks to the waterproofing systems offered by MABS, Jon no longer stresses about water intrusion.
Foundation cracks along walls and floors can lead to a wet basement. Fixing the issue is a simple task with the help of MidAmerica Basement Systems. Installing CleanSpace Liner addresses the leaking wall cracks. It helps direct the water to a drain system while helping seal off moisture. WaterGuard addresses the leaking floor problem. WaterGuard collects water before it surfaces the floor and helps direct water to the TripleSafe sump. A TripleSafe properly discharges the seeping water, keeping the basement dry.
Will was not sure how to address his leaking floor issue and quickly contacted the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems. After his basement was looked at a WaterGuard and SuperSump system was proposed.

Sue now has a stabilized foundation with the option of better the walls over time.
Years ago, Dennis had a partial waterproofing system installed by MidAmerica Basement Systems. Over the years, the untreated areas had begun to leak and reached back out to them to finish the rest of the basement. Due to only having a partial system with a SuperSump, and second SuperSump was installed to insure the first one did not over work itself and burn out, allowing for proper and effective water discharge. WaterGuard was also installed along the untreated portion to help direct the seeping water to the appropriate pump. Dennis now has a full perimeter waterproofing system to keep his basement dry for many more years to come.

Once water entered the WaterGuard system, it is then redirected to the TripleSafe to be properly discharged back out of the toy room. Now Eric and Melanie’s children can enjoy the toy room rain or shine, and anytime of the year.

This new homeowner is frustrated that she bought a recently built home that is having water leaks in the basement through cracks on poured-in concrete foundation. She is hoping to finish her basement at some point, so it is very important for her to have a dry basement and to take care of the problem now before it gets worse. Highly qualified crew member Chris Riley had the privilege of helping solve the problem by installing WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard is designed not to clog, has a built in 3/8” gap between the floor and the wall to drain wall leaks and a big drain outlet to the sump. The homeowner went with our SuperSump equipped with floor drain built into the lid, CleanPump Stand to elevate pump off the bottom of the sump liner, allowing for some sediments to settle to the bottom of the sump liner without clogging. Also, a Pump alarm was installed, which is a battery-powered alarm that sounds off automatically when the water reaches a level above the point where the pump should normally turn on. Because the homeowner plans to finish the basement, CleanSpace Wall System was installed. CleanSpace Wall system economically brightens the basement, stops water vapor, drains wall leaks, is very durable and nearly impossible to rip. CleanSpace Wall System is made from inorganic material preventing mold from growing. Chris did a stellar job and takes pride in that our homeowner will now be able to finish her basement with peace of mind.
