Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Washburn, IL

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 Washburn 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.

Job Stories From Washburn, IL
No Longer Leaking Basement in Washburn, IA

Homeowner, Gerry was experiencing water leaking through his basement, he knew that the weather forecast ahead was just going to be full of more rain, so he thought it was best to call someone in to come take a look at his basement. He called MidAmerica Basement Systems and Design Specialist, Justin was able to come out and take a look at it. Justin recommended that Gerry would have is basement waterproofed to eliminate the problem of his basement ever becoming much worse than just a leaking problem. 

Installer, Oscar was able to come out and install CleanSpace Wall System, TripleSafe Sump Pump, and WaterGuard. The WaterGuard System will be able to intercept the water when it comes into the basement around the perimeter. It then will be able to drain the water away to the TripleSafe Sump Pump where the pump will be able to pump the water out of the basement. WaterGuard is a great system to have installed if you wish to use your space for storage or recreational purposes because it is only installed around the perimeter. CleanSpace is a bright white, durable vapor barrier for the basement walls. This helps stopping water vapor from permeating walls and will also drain wall leaks. The liner will also conform to any type of wall and is washable.

Homeowner, Gerry is now able to enjoy his basement once again. He is now able to change the space into a storage space or even use it for recreational purposes. He is thrilled! If you too are having the same issue as Gerry, do not hesitate to reach out to MidAmerica Basement Systems. We would be happy to help you!

Washburn, IL Basement Waterproofing Completed Work

Gwyn and James T. of Washburn, IL had water coming in under the steps in their basement during heavy rainfall. Their basement was damp and soggy as a result, so they decided to call the experts at MidAmerica Basement Systems to get the basement waterproofed.

Gwyn and James met with design specialist Dan Garner. Dan advised WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system, a TripleSafe Sump Pump and a buried discharge line to keep the basement dry. The homeowners decided to get the work done, and foreman Justin Reger and his team installed the system. Gwyn and James are thrilled to finally have a dry basement.

Basement was waterproofed about 20 years ago. All but one section is dry. That section is bricked and the mortar is crumbling and water comes in during heavy rain. The brick had been painted or skim coated back then and it is flaking off. One wall is bowing and basement supports need replaced/upgraded. Thanks, Becky Henry
