Job Stories From Chariton, IA
Foundation Repair in Chariton, IA

This homeowner noticed their wall in the basement was failing. Since she uses the basement as a way to store her items, she was concerned the failing walls would damage her items. To prevent this, she called Midwest and we visited her home to perform an inspection. Tyler Dopheide was the one to inspect and he found that the current wall support system was not working well, and the wall was failing because of it. To fix this issue, we installed PowerBrace throughout the basement to help stabilize the wall. The homeowner was pleased with the work we did and is happy that her items are now safe!

Linda M is currently in her forever home and built it to her liking. She now found that there was water in her basement from issues in her foundation. Linda knew she needed to fix this problem if she wanted to be happy in her forever home. She then heard about Midwest and wanted our help. We sent out our System Design Specialist to look at the water and foundation issue in her basement to best find a solution to permanently fix the problem. 

After the inspection, we determined that installing a WaterGaurd and CleanSpace system would keep water out of her basement. Then we installed wall anchers and piers to support the home's foundation and walls.

Basement Waterproofing in Chariton IA

Tracey G in Chariton, IA wanted to finish the basement and increase the amount of livable space in the home. Unfortunately, water had found it’s way into the basement, and this leak would need to be resolved before construction could begin. Fortunately for this small town in Iowa, Midwest Foundation Repair was there to help.


To keep the basement clean, dry and ready for finishing, we installed a full perimeter basement waterproofing system, including drain tile to route water to a newly installed sump pump. We also installed Clean Space vapor barrier along the basement walls to prevent moisture from contacting the studs, drywall and insulation that was part of the basement finishing. 


In the end, this homeowner was excited to have the work completed so that they could start planning on ways to use their newly finished basement space. When asked why they chose Midwest for this project, they shared with us that our thorough inspection, explanation of the problem and how we planned to repair it gave them the confidence that we knew our stuff.

My yard is quite wet and since we bought our house 2 years ago, there is a slight crack in the basement wall that seems to be growing. A few storms ago, the ground corner of the downspout came off and we got a small amount of water in our basement. Now the crack seems to be bigger and we had some more dampness on that basement wall. We would like a quote on that project as well as looking at the end of our driveway and what it would take to level that back with the street. Thank you!

After the rain we had yesterday, May 28th, we have found that in our finished basement has a good amount of water coming in. It has been enough to soak a portion of the flooring, but it is not standing water. It is not rushing in. It seems to be a seeping or small trickle. We are wanting to get a quote to get this problem fixed so that it does not continue to happen.
