Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Vinton, 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 Vinton 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.

Power Outages Causes Sump to Fail in Vinton, IA

During a large storm, Dorla’s power went out, causing her sump pump to stop running, and basement to flood. After the power came back on, she was still having issues with water seeping in the foundation, leaving the basement wet still. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her issues addressed. She was offered WaterGuard to collect the seeping foundation water, redirecting it to the sump pump to be discharged. An UltraSump was also offered, providing her with the security of a functioning pump during power outages. The UltraSump is a battery backup pump that can run for hours on one single charge. Now Dorla can relax during storms that produce power outages.

Seeping Water is Properly Addressed for Basement in Vinton, IA

Dorla has always had an effective sump pump, but lately during rainfall, her basement was leaking again. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have someone inspect her situation. During evaluation, it was mentioned that her pump had worn out and was no longer working. Crewmen replaced the old worn out pump with a new one, and added a UltraSump. An UltraSump is a battery backup pump that prevents leaking and floods during power outages. WaterGuard was also installed around the perimeter of the basement to prevent water from surfacing, and redirect the water to the pit to be properly discharged.

Fred and his wife enjoy sitting on their porch, but were noticing that the concrete slab was starting to slop to the one side.

I have a basement bedroom that gets water at the floor whenever there is an extra heavy rain or a rapid snow melt. The yard slopes uphill from this side of the house. I am thinking your inside tile and sump would solve the problem.

A small section of the cement walkway in front of our house is sinking. I haven't measured it yet, but I'd assume it to be approximately 10 foot long. It's been sinking over the years and needs to be raised about 1" to 2" to meet the other cement walkways. There are no cracks in the cement. It's simply a section that was poured separately and due in part to our sandy soil and how water runs off when it rains, has slowly been sinking. I"ve lived in the house 34 years and it's taken that long to sink the 1-2" that it has.

Hi there! We bought a property a little while ago that is built in 1904. The floor in the house is sinking and the previous owners (have been many) have done everything that they can to disguise the problem so there are gaps everywhere and the floors are leaning and in some places it feels really unstable. There is a small basement where the water heater is kept, the rest is crawl space and we believe that the biggest problem is where the crawlspace is. We are looking around to find the best basement specialist Thank You so much!
