Job Stories From Whiteside County, IL
Water Seepage Stopped in Morrison, IL

Judy W. is the homeowner of this brick basement in Morrison. Although brick can be aesthetically pleasing to some, it can produce a myriad of problems in a basement. For example, Judy was worried about the amount of water coming into her basement from where the floor meets the wall and she did not have a sump pump in the space. Incidents of sitting water had left a musty smell in the basement that Judy did not care for. Soon she called the professionals at MidAmerica Basement Systems.

The system addresses the water seepage from where the floor meets the wall by installing WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement. WaterGuard will direct these leaks away from the foundation floor and to the local sump pump.

The sump pump with the design to keep Judy's basement dry all the time, is no other than the patented TripleSafe sump pump. Whereas Judy did not have a sump pump, now she had three that are designed to work with each other. If the primary pump fails are is overwhelmed, the powerful second pump activates. The third pump is the unit’s battery back-up pump designed to turn on in the event of a power outage. The system also comes with the WaterWatch alarm which will warn Judy if there is a pressing issue. 

The musty smell was relieved with the ever efficient SaniDry XP. SaniDry XP is not only an extremely effective dehumidifier but is also an air filtration system. Now Judy's basement is dry, protected and smells clean.

Flooring Done Right in Fulton, IL

Tom and Sharon B. had work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems in the past and were finally ready to add some finishing touches. They called MidAmerica again to get a free estimate on some flooring.

After a short phone call, an appointment with Mike Banks was set up to determine a flooring solution. Mike believed the best solution was to install Thermal Dry Carpet throughout the basement, while incorporating some Thermal Dry Tile also to give it a distinct and unique look. The Thermal Dry Flooring not only gives a finished look to the basement, but also allows water to travel underneath it to the sump pump to avoid any water seepage or molding.

Tom and Sharon B. were so happy with the initial work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems, they couldn’t wait to have their basement finished with them as well. They now have a finished floor and could not be happier.

Water and Foundation Damage Resolved in Sterling, IL

Kate S. was having multiple problems in her basement from water issues, water damage, and even foundation problems. She was desperate need of help, so she called the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free in-home estimate.

After a quick phone call, an appointment was set up with Mac McDaniel to come and assess the basement. Mac decided the best solution for her particular basement issues was to have a TripleSafe pumping system, CleanSpace walling, a full perimeter of WaterGuard, and multiple Power Braces. The WaterGuard is a drainage system put along the inside perimeter of the home to capture the water and transport it to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is the latest and greatest in the sump pump market; 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 is a great look for the basement walls, but also blocks the water from the walls and directs it to the WaterGuard to be pumped out as well. The Power Braces are long steel beams that keep the wall from caving in and over time will push the wall back into its original position.

Kate S. is very happy with the work done by MidAmerica Basement Systems. Her basement is now worry free and will stay that way for a very long time.

Mike is a handyman and it always constantly working in his garage. He was starting to notice the concrete was sinking, causing an uneven, unsafe area to work.

Lifting and Leveling Concrete in Sterling, IL

With the help from MidAmerica Basement Systems, PolyLevel will lift and lever your home’s interior slabs, patios and pool decks, driveways, stoops and porches, sidewalks, and additions. For Marvin, his driveway and sidewalk had begun to sink and produce large tripping hazards. Once PolyLevel was injected, the voids that had caused the slabs to sink, were filled and then PolyLevel expanded to lift them to a level state. After all areas were injected with PolyLevel, NexusPro Joint Sealant was applied to all cracks, preventing future soil washouts from rain water. The sealant is a flexible material that will expand and contract with the natural movement of the ground, providing the proper seal for the cracks.

Foundation Settlement in Davenport, IA

Barry noticed some vertical cracks in his basement foundation, where he was also getting some water. He was referred by a past customer to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems for a free estimate.

After a quick call to the office, an appointment was set up for Chris DeVore to come evaluate the sinking foundation. Chris decided the best solution for the specific foundation problem was to install Push Piers. The Push Piers go along the outside of the wall and are used to fix sagging foundations. The Push Piers are driven deep into the ground to stabilize and lift a home’s foundation back into place.

Barry is very happy with the experience of MidAmerica Basement Systems. There is no longer a worry of the basement or foundation having any more issues.
