Basement Waterproofing in Ottumwa, IA

This homeowner wanted to have a dry basement because it was getting harder and harder for him to keep mopping up all of the water. He wanted this problem solved by experts in basement waterproofing, so he gave us a call. We sent System Design Specialist Luke Miller to inspect the basement and determine what was causing water to get into the basement as well as design a comprehensive solution to keep water out. Luke found that the floor/wall join around the perimeter of the basement was leaking water onto the floor as well as through some cracks in the floor itself. Upon seeing this, he knew that full perimeter solution was needed as well as a lateral line to capture water that was seeping in through the floor cracks, so he called for an installation team as per the homeowner's request. One of our installation teams utilized a full perimeter WaterGuard Interior Drainage System as well as a partial height CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. After that, they  installed a lateral line to capture water that was coming through the middle of the floor before it could get into the basement. They topped it off by installing a TripleSafe Sump Pump System to push all of this water up and away from the basement. The homeowner was very pleased with the end result and he thought that his installation looked very clean. Check out the new waterproofing systems this homeowner has!

Basement Waterproofing in Waterloo, IA

This homeowner had recently finished their basement to get it ready to put on the market. During the spring, when the ground melted, they noticed water coming in from behind the stairs, ruining the drywall. So they called Midwest to come out and inspect. Mike Portal was the one to perform the inspection. He found that the water was coming in behind the finished walls through the cold and mortar joints on the block wall. This happened due to hydrostatic pressure from water filling up around the foundation.

To fix this issue, we installed WaterGuard and CleanSpace along the wall where the water was coming in. This will help direct and drain the water away from the home.

The homeowner now feels confident in our solution and is happy they won't have to deal with water ruining any more drywall in their home.
