Wet spring soils swelled up with water pushed this basement wall inward.  As you can see the crack in the wall is opened up wide.  About a half of an inch.  The next photo will show the wall is pushed back and the crack is closing as the wall is straightened.

Mr. and Mrs. Dixon had been dealing with this problem for awhile now but decided to call Midwest Basement Systems when their son tripped over the front stoop and hurt himself. 

Mr. Dixon called and wanted somebody to come out and take a look to see if it was something that could get fixed. The System Design Specialist described to him what we could for him. He explained how we would level the concrete and how it would be done.

Travis came out and did the work for Mr. and Mrs. Dixon. They were very happy with the work that was done. They told Travis that they would recommend us for anything if the future.

Job Stories From Altoona, IA
Crawl Space Repair in Altoona, IA

Mike has lived in his house for about ten years and he was noticing some different smells and mold in his house. He has little kids running around his house all the time and he was thinking that he needed to get this fixed. He called Midwest Basement Systems and asked one of our System Designer Specialists come out to talk to him about the issue. We told him that we needed to install a dehumidifier in his crawl space and do some other work throughout the whole crawl space.

We went through the steps of repairing his crawl space. The steps to repair it is to fix the ground water leakage, isolate the house form the earth, and seal out outside air. Mike is grateful for the work performed that made his home a healthier, safer, place!

I want to see if 3 of our sidewalk slabs can be pumped up so they are level. If not, we'll need to replace them before winter. The water settles and freezes due to the slope. Thank you.
