Mark and Donna were tired of dealing with an older dreary basement that also had a water problem. They have used MidAmerica Basement Systems before and decided to go to someone they trusted.
Soon after giving them a call, an appointment was set up for Mark Kurtz to come out and diagnose the basement. Mark decided the best solution for their particular basement was to have 2 SuperSump pumping systems, a full perimeter of the WaterGuard drainage system, along with new basement windows, and an egress window. Having the 2 SuperSump pumping systems is necessary for their larger basement space to make sure all the water is pumped out and away from the home. The full perimeter of WaterGuard will keep the water out of the entire basement in the case of future water troubles. The new basement windows also help keep the water out and the egress window adds an extra escape route for a legal living space.
Mark and Donna could not be happier with again choosing MidAmerica Basement Systems as their waterproofing specialist. They no longer have to worry about water in the basement and can now create a living space if they so choose.
Frank B., is a Muscatine homeowner and was feeling defeated with the amount of water intrusion in his basement whenever it would rain so he contacted the MidAmerica Basement Systems team.

Kathy R. was having major water trouble in her basement every time it rained. It became so bad that the basement started to look like a pool after you empty it, with water stains all over the walls. She was fed up and decided to give MidAmerica Basement Systems a call for help.
Mike Banks was sent out to evaluate the problem in Kathy’s basement. Mike was absolutely sure the problem would be fixed by installing a TripleSafe pumping system, CleanSpace walling, and a full perimeter of WaterGuard. The WaterGuard will take the water from the basement to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the best basement sump pump money can buy; it is equipped with three pumps to make sure all of the water is pumped up, out, and safely away from the home. The CleanSpace walling system will give the basement a clean look, while also blocking the water from the walls down into the WaterGuard to be pumped out by the TripleSafe.
Kathy R. is ecstatic with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems and would recommend them to anyone with basement issues. She now has a worry free basement for years to come.
Rick W. had water damage in his basement and water came into his basement every time it rained. Finally tired of trying to deal with the problem on his own, Rick called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.
Shortly after the phone call, an appointment was set up with Mike Darnell to come evaluate the basement. Mike decided the best solution for this particular problem was to install a TripleSafe pumping system, SaniDryXP, and a full perimeter of WaterGuard. The WaterGuard is a trenching system around the inside of the basement to channel the water to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the best in the business when it comes to sump pumps. The triple pump design will make sure to get all the water up, out, and away from the home. The SaniDryXP is a dehumidifier, as well as an air purifier that will take care of an entire basement area.
Rick W. is very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. He now has a dry and worry free basement.

Marge’s concrete patio was built on weakened compacted soil, and over time has made sections sink and create an uneven area. She contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have her patio lifted and leveled, so she could entertain her guests safely.

Tim and Mary’s basement kept getting water in it, and over the years it became worse and worse. They finally reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have a waterproofing system installed. It was suggested that WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump be installed to properly address the leaking basement.

Donald and Pamela could not understand why there was excessive moisture in their home and quickly contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems to have the problem resolved. The problem was coming from the untreated crawlspace. The crawlspace would become wet when it rained, and moisture was seeping into the rest of the home. It was proposed to have the area completely encapsulated to seal off the ground from the rest of the home. CleanSpace Drainage Matting and Liner were installed to prevent a wet crawlspace, sealing the area off from the exposed dirt floor. A SaniDry CX was installed in the crawlspace to absorb the rest of the moisture in the area, and keep the humidity levels down in the rest of the home. Donald and Pamela no longer deal with extra moisture in their home.

The SuperSump than discharges of the water in the basement, keeping Nancy’s basement dry.

Ron and Barb were having issues with bowing basement walls and contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems. Once their situation was evaluated, it was offered to have a GeoLock Wall Anchor system installed. GeoLock anchors a placed in the ground, covering more than the standard wall anchor. Once the anchors are set, a long, galvanized steel rod is connected to the anchor and placed through the wall to apply pressure to the bowing wall. The wall anchors permanently stabilize the wall, providing the option to straighten the wall over time with a tightening process.
Gloria had issues with foundation cracks in her basement, indicating that she had a bowing wall issue. Before it could get any worse, she contacted MidAmerica Basement Systems.

The large GeoLock Anchors were placed on the outside of her home deep in the ground to provide the proper counter act on the inward bowing wall. Once the plates were installed on the inside of the wall, the system was tightened to ensure the wall would not bow anymore inward. The GeoLock Wall Anchor system also offers the potential to tighten and straighten the wall over time, reducing the bow completely.
Douglas was having issues with his basement leaking and didn’t understand why. He had a sump pump, but water seemed to still come in throughout his basement. He reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems to have his sump inspected to make sure it is working properly. During inspection, it was noted that the sump pump could not handle the amount of water that was seeping in the basement, causing it to become wet. A TripleSafe was offered to replace the old sump, and WaterGuard and CleanSpace was offered to increase the effectiveness of the waterproofing system. The WaterGuard helps collect seeping water, redirecting it to the TripleSafe. The CleanSpace was installed along the foundation walls, to help keep moisture levels down and redirect any moisture to the WaterGuard system.

Harold was having issues with a leaking basement and reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. As his basement was inspected, a waterproofing proposal was offered. One wall had an issue with a leaking crack, so BrightWall was offered to act as a vapor barrier, helping guide the water down the wall and into a WaterGuard drainage track. WaterGuard collects water seeping in from walls and under the floor, redirecting it to the SuperSump. Once water enters the SuperSump, it is properly discharged from the basement, leaving the area dry once again.

James was noticing some sagging in his floors and reached out to MidAmerica Basement Systems for help. When they inspected his home, it was addressed that the untreated crawlspace was causing moisture to enter, weakening the wooden floor joist system and making the floors sag. He was offered a total crawlspace encapsulation to seal off all moisture access, and to protect the floors to the rest of his home. Drainage matting was placed along the dirt floor to help collect any moisture and redirect it to a SmartSump to be discharged. CleanSpace Liner was installed along the foundation walls and over top the matting to permanently seal off the rest of the home from the ground. Keeping the crawlspace dry protects against the decay of the wooden floor joist system, making James’ home longer lasting for many more years to come.
