Helical Piers are designed to attempt to lift the home back to its original position. It is a solution that causes minimal disturbance and yet is more effective that other solutions. The experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems install the pier system from the exterior or interior of the home. Helical Piers are effective at closing cracks caused by settlement which improves the operation of doors and windows.

First, soil is removed from the area where the Helical Piers will be installed, and then sections are advanced into the soil. Once proper depth is achieved, heavy-duty foundation brackets are positioned below the footing. The weight of the home is then transferred through the Helical Piers to deep, competent soils, lifting the home back to its proper place.

Dennis had built his home over 23 years ago and had properly installed a successful drainage and sump system. One day he noticed a leak on his finished carpeted basement floor. He invested to find a foundation crack behind the drywall. He quickly searched for a repair company and found MidAmerica Basement Systems. Adao Natario, project engineer, was sent out to service Dennis’ home. The installation of Flexispan provided a waterproof sealant to prevent further water leakage in the crack. Flexispan is a polyurethane sealant that seeps deep into the crack, forming a durable, flexible seal. Thanks to the help of Adao and MidAmerica Basement Systems, Dennis can continue enjoying his finished basement.

  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows

Vicinity of Center St. NE in Swisher
Just purchased the home. It has termite damage, but not sure to what extent. I know that one support beam in the basement is collapsing . the beam spans the length of the basement and consists of three 2x12's. two of the the three appear to pretty much eaten hallow. there are other signs of damage, but not to the extent of the one beam, however they may need replacing as well.

Need a quote on an egress window install in a basement area that has an existing window that does not meet egress standards to classify the room as a bedroom.
Vicinity of in Swisher
I spoke with Frank Schultz at a goft outing in Iowa City on 9/9/2016. My driveway has settle at the entrance to my two stall garage 3"-4" causing a bump. I would like this area lifted and leveled. I also have a 10'x10' concrete patio in my backyard that has settle 3"-4" where it meets the foundation of my house causing water to pool against the foundation during rains. I would like this area lift to create positive drainage away from the foundation.

Residential house basement foundation crack. Repair needed 8 ft poured basement under a ranch style house. Crack increases in width going up. Greatest width of crack around 1/2 inch at top. Water, soil, and breeze entering basement. Exterior crack location is 1 ft behind an air conditioning unit, 1 ft away from underground electrical line, and 3 ft from 500sqft deck. Interior location of crack is 1 ft from electrical breaker box, going behind 2 horizontal wooden studs, and 2 ft above ceiling.
