Rose was concerned about her unlevel and cracked driveway. It was posing as a tripping hazard to her and her guests. She reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her driveway leveled.

Basement Relief in Silvis, IL

The condition of this basement in Silvis was beginning to become a nuisance for these homeowners and so they decided to call on the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems. The team installed a TripleSafe sump pump system that comes with 3 pumps in one, one of the pumps is a battery powered back-up pump in case of a power outage, an alarm to alert the owner of any problems, an airtight lid and more.

The experts also installed a WaterGuard that will redirect any wall leaks to the TripleSafe sump pump. The foundation floor had large cracks which were created by hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is essentially pressure that builds when the ground around and under the home absorb lots of water, such as during storms. This pressure builds and begins to push against the foundation floor/walls. Large cracks in the foundation can lead to more complications if not addressed by an expert. In order to alleviate the pressure, the MidAmerica team created laterals in the foundation, which provided relief from the hydrostatic pressure. Ultimately, redirecting the water from underneathe to the local TripleSafe sump pump. 

Now this basement has a fighting chance against leaks and floods!
