Mike was having issues with his driveway sinking and pulling away from his home. Voids had become apparent under the concrete slabs, causing them to sink and pull away from the home, leaving 2 inch gaps between the driveway and home’s foundation. Injecting PolyLevel under the concrete slabs allows for the void to fill and lift the concrete back up against the home. PolyLevel provides an accurate lift with a permanent solution for stable concrete.

Homeowner Shelly has lived in her early 2000’s home since it was a new build in the neighborhood. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to learn more about the PolyLevel service that we offer. PolyLevel is foam that is injected under your concrete slabs. The foam fills the void under the slab that then lifts and levels it back into place. Shelly had her garage and driveway lifted with PolyLevel.

Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Shellsburg, IA

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

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 Shellsburg 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.

Job Stories From Shellsburg, IA
Injection Technology Raised Concrete Back to Level in Shellsburg, IA

Over the years, the fill soil under concrete slabs becomes compressed creating voids. If the voids become large enough, the weight of the concrete begins to sink into the void, and can even produce cracks, making the area unlevel and unsafe to walk on. With the injection technology of PolyLevel, sunken slabs can be precisely lifted and leveled. PolyLevel uses a lightweight material that reduces the amount of weight that a common mudjacking slurry uses. NexusPro Joint Sealant is applied to the cracks after the slabs have be lifted, protecting the slab from cracking any further. With PolyLevel and NexusPro Joint Sealant, concrete slabs become level and safe to walk on once again.

Small leak in basement wall, finished area of basement.
Vicinity of Patricia Ct. NE in Shellsburg
Water seeping into basement family room approximately 2 feet on either side of the above ground window. Had problems all winter but has been fine since the snow melted. Local garden center designer thought perhaps I had a crack in the foundation. My home is approximately 39 years old. My sump pump had failed which I was unaware of and it backed up into my crawl space. Since the crawl space was dried out would this have any bearing on the entire situation?
Vicinity of in Shellsburg
We have a older farm house with a new addition. Our basement leaks through cracks in the floor. I would like to have the inside perimeter drained. I have a previously installed sump pump and also drain to the outside by gravity. Would like to discuss options.
Vicinity of Maxwell Ct in Shellsburg
Our basement flooded. House built in '98, not coming from sump pump or floor drain. Must be coming from foundation? Don't want to worry about a $1,000 insurance deductible every spring/summer.
Vicinity of in Shellsburg
When we get a lot of rain we get water in our basement. We have some cracks in the wall and floor (minor) and the water pressure causes it to ooze through the cracks. we were hoping that installing a sump pump would help. looking for average price of installing something.
Vicinity of in Shellsburg
Existing basement with finished walls, leaking whenever it rains, just in the one area of the basement.
