There are other ways to fix your concrete without having to have your concrete all ripped up. The experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems would be more than happy to help lift and level your concrete without tearing it apart! A homeowner in Davis, IL contacted us to help fix his concrete issue and we were more than happy to help him out! PolyLevel was used to permanently fix his concrete issue!

PolyLevel does have the same idea as mud-jacking but does not involve hammering up the concrete and no mud whatsoever is involved. Lightweight foam is injected into the concrete slab. While the foam is injected it compresses the soil beneath it as it lifts the concrete up creating a stable base where the fill soil was poorly compacted. It does not shrink or degrade from excessive heat and will not wash out. It is environmentally friendly and made of recycled materials. It will also be a great investment for your home!

Now the homeowner has a stable and safe concrete surface thanks to the MidAmerica Basement Systems Team. If you too are looking to have your concrete fixed and leveled do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We can set you up with an appointment with one of our skilled and educated Design Specialist to give you a free, no-obligation estimate. Contact us today to learn more and let us be the ones that bring you peace of mind!

PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Stephenson County home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

Job Stories From Stephenson County, IL
Basement Made Dry in Freeport

Jean was having a water problem in her basement for a while and decided to call in the experts. She found out that MidAmerica Basement Systems did free estimates through her search on the internet.

After giving the office a call, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come evaluate the basement. Mac decided the best solution for her water issue was to have a TripleSafe pumping system and a full perimeter of WaterGuard drainage system installed. The TripleSafe will be most effective because it will take the water out of the home at a higher rate. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will make sure the whole house is secure from any other future water issue.

Jean is extremely happy to have a dry basement and to no longer have to worry about it. She believes MidAmerica Basement Systems is very professional and trustworthy as a basement specialist company.

Breathing easy in Freeport, IL

The MidAmerica Basement Systems team was called by this homeowner in Freeport to address Radon concerns. Radon poses a real threat to homes if the levels are not stabilized. Radon is an indoor air pollutant, which is a colorless, odorless radio-active gas that comes from naturally occurring uranium in soil. Radon is also the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers. Most Radon is drawn into the home through surrounding soil by way of openings between the house and soil. After the experts at MidAmerica tested the home, they installed the Radon Mitigation system to safeguard the home by keeping Radon levels low. MidAmerica is thrilled to have protected yet another home from this silent threat!

Sealing Off Water Intrusion in Pearl City, IL

Susan was noticing her concrete sinking near her garage door, leaving the area uneven. When she contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems, it was noted that the reason for the sinking slabs was from water seeping in between the garage foundation and concrete. Once the water would seep down in between, it was causing for the ground to washout underneath, creating large voids. It was offered to have PolyLevel injected to fill the voids and stabilize the concrete. NexusPro Joint Sealant was then applied to the gap between the concrete and garage foundation to prevent future water seepage and sinking concrete.

Jason and Kim could not figure out where the moldy-musty smell was coming from in their home. They called the experts of MidAmerica Basement Systems to have their issue properly appointed.

CleanSpace permanently seals off the exposed ground from the rest of the crawlspace, while the SmartSump pumps the water out of the area. Installing the SaniDry Sedona will keep the moisture levels under control, preventing future mold growth, leaving the air in the home cleaner to breathe.

Sinking Slabs are Raised with PolyLevel in Orangeville, IL

Gene has several areas of his driveway and sidewalk that were sinking and needed lifting. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems for help. Crewmen injected the PolyLevel solution to lift and stabilize the sunken areas. PolyLevel is a lightweight foam of high-density polymers that fill the voids under the concrete. Once the voids are filled, the polymers expand to lift the slabs, providing a stable ground for the concrete. The PolyLevel provides a precise and accurate lift so under- and over-lifting is avoided. The quick cure time also allows for area access within minutes of application.

No Longer Flooding Basement in Freeport, IL

Homeowner, Julie was tired of her basement filling with water every time it would rain. It was a reoccurring occurrence and would not stop filling with water until the rain stopped. She was not a fan of cleaning up the water herself every time either. She knew it was time to have her basement fully waterproofed. She looked online to find MidAmerica Basement Systems and called them right away. Design Specialist, Joe was happy to come out and recommend to Julie a waterproofing system for her basement.

WaterGuard was one of the systems that was installed in Julie's home. It is a piping system that collects water around the perimeter of the basement. It is designed to not sit in the dirt, so it will not be able to clog from rock and sediment. CleanSpace was also installed in Julie's basement. It is white, durable, wall barrier for basement walls. It is a fast, permanent installation. It is washable and can conform to any type of foundation walls. It stops water vapor from permeating walls and will drain wall leaks. WaterGuard and CleanSpace go great together. They leave the space with a finished look, allowing you to use the area for storage or recreational purposes.
