This damp, dark crawl space belongs to a homeowner in Bettendorf. The homeowner called the MidAmerica Basement Systems experts because they wanted a cleaner, dryer crawl space. The team installed drainage matting before encapsulating the crawl space. Drainage matting is great to allow water to flow easily to a local drain. CleanSpace was installed over the ground and up the walls to fully encapsulate the space. Then the team installed SmartDrain to drain away any leaks in the crawl space.

Joyce was tired of dealing with all her basement issues by herself so she called in the experts. She was referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate.
After calling the office, an appointment was set up for Mac McDaniel to come evaluate her basement. Mac decided the best solution for her basement was to use Wall Anchors and Power Braces to keep the walls from falling in, as well as pushing them back to their upright positions. Mac also diagnosed a water problem and decided a TripleSafe pumping system and some WaterGuard would solve the issue. The TripleSafe pumping system will get the water out and away from the home at a higher rate and the WaterGuard will filter that water to the TripleSafe.
Joyce is very happy with the work and experience that MidAmerica Basement Systems provided. She no longer has to worry about her basement caving in or there being water after a rain storm.
Jorden and Chelsey were concerned with the cracks and bowing in their foundation walls. They were referred by a past customer to get a free estimate from MidAmerica Basement Systems.

Joel and Shirlene were tired of the mustiness and water in their dirt crawlspace. They were referred to MidAmerica Basement Systems to get a free estimate.
After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up for Kevin Coakley to come evaluate the basement. Kevin decided the best solution for the crawlspace was to install a SmartSump pumping system, a full perimeter of Smart Pipe, and encapsulate the area with CleanSpace. The SmartSump pumping system is a small sump pit to fit into a small crawlspace that will take the water out and away from the home. Smart Pipe is dug around the inside perimeter of the home and buried to keep the water from getting into the space. CleanSpace is an encapsulation material that will get rid of the dirty look and also help with the waterproofing process.
Joel and Shirlene are very happy to no longer deal with their crawlspace, thanks to MidAmerica Basement Systems. They now can show their friends and family who are having the same type of issues that there is a solution.
This crawl space in Princeton belongs to Harlan. Harlan wanted his space restored, waterproofed, and protected. He called MidAmerica Basement Systems to remedy the problem once and for all.
A MidAmerica team member and trained professional, was sent to inspect/test the home, advised Harlan of what should be done and quoted Harlan the same day. Once the game plan was set, the MidAmerica team began encapsulating the space. The experts were able to protect the crawl space from increasing Radon levels by installing radon mitigation system. The system collects soil gasses and a radon depressurization vent forces radon out from the home.
The floor of the crawlspace was fitted with a polyethylene drainage matting that creates an airspace for water to flow to under the CleanSpace liner. The CleanSpace liner creates a vapor barrier. The liner is durable, effective, and transforms any crawl space into a brighter, cleaner, and safer space.
Harlan can breathe happy and healthy knowing that his home is protected. MidAmerica is honored to help provide safer homes for their customers!

Bob of Moline couldn’t understand why his electric bill was so high every month when his home was only 620 sq. ft. Upon research, he discovered that untreated crawl spaces have cooler temperatures which push up through the home, cooling the home, which causes the furnace to run more.
The experts at MidAmercia Basement Systems installed a spray foam to insulate the crawl space. Insulating the crawl space alone will not completely fix your problem, but will help a little. To make a significant difference in energy savings, the crawl space should be completely encapsulated. Completely isolating the crawl space from outside elements, the dirt floor and walls has CleanSpace installed over them. CleanSpace is a thick liner that won’t tear or puncture, allowing it to completely encapsulate the area – keeping to cold out, and the warm in. Now Bob can run his furnace without paying a fortune.
Robert M. lives in an older home with foundation built out of concrete block. Over the years, the ground around his home has settled, causes stress on his foundation. The settlement of the ground was causing the walls to bow, and because his foundation was made out of concrete block, cracks were forming along the foundation seal. The experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems suggested that a PowerBrace system be installed to prevent the walls from bowing any further. Over time, PowerBraces may potentially straighten the foundation walls back to their original state.
Bob of Davenport was noticing a tripping hazard on his walkway to him front door, and was concerned about his guests’ safety. When he contacted the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems, they recommend PolyLevel and NexusPro. PolyLevel was injected to level the uneven walkway so a tripping hazard was no longer an issue to worry about. NexusPro was applied to all cracks along the walkway and driveway to help prevent water from seeping into the cracks. When water has access through the cracks of the concrete slabs, it allows for the ground underneath to wash out, causing voids under the concrete slabs. Voids under the concrete slabs than cause the slabs to become uneven and unsafe to walk on. NexusPro is a great solution to help prevent wash-outs under your concrete slabs, and keep your concrete healthy and safe.
It is not uncommon for a garage to be built out of concrete block, especially when it is the main foundation to your home. But just like a home’s basement foundation wall, the soil around the walls creates pressure and over time can cause the walls to bow inward. One solution to stabilizing a bowing wall is CarbonArmor. CarbonArmor is a flexible fabric carbon fiber, used to stop walls from bowing any further inward, and potentially straighten the wall back to its original position. Now there is no fear of an unstable home with the CarbonArmor System from MidAmerica Basement Systems.
