Professional Basement and Crawl Space Repair in Des Moines, IA

At Midwest Foundation Repair we put customer service first and are proud to serve our area. Our team of trained technicians use only high quality materials from the best manufacturers in the business to ensure that you get only the best results. We want to work with you to find the solution that will work best for you!

Common causes of basement waterproofing problems are often stemmed from leaky pipes, flooding during heavy rainfall, or sump pump failures. These problems can be fixed with products like a professional-grade TripleSafe sump pump, specially designed with three pumps to ensure that you won't have to worry about your basement being flooded, even if the power goes out. Additionally, also offer thermal insulation and quality drainage systems to deposit water pumped out of your basement a safe distance away from the foundations. 

Symptoms of a waterproofing problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor
  • Leaking or damp basement walls
  • Pooling or standing water
  • Crystaline deposit on concrete surfaces
  • Musy odors
  • Condensation
  • Sump pump issues
  • Leaky basement windows

Crawl spaces can often fall into disrepair a little to easily because of their location in the home as well as their function. When a crawl space is left in disrepair for too long, it can become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and even wood rot. The way to remedy this is to install quality products like vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps. 

Friendly Residential and Commercial Foundation Repairs

Cracked Foundation Wall

If you have problems with your foundations, then it is probably caused by broken, weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of this are sagging floors, cracked floors or walls, foundation heaves, or tilting chimneys. These problems can seem like a daunting task to try and solve, but with our products like wall anchors and jack posts, they can be fixed quickly with permanent results. 

For commercial foundation repairs, we offer top-of-the-line helical anchors and tiebacks. These offer stability to foundation walls and retaining walls with unbalanced earth pressures. These helical piers are versatile, have predictable capacity, and have clean installation with no messy grout. These as well as our other products like push pier systems and helical pile systems are sure to correct foundation and stability issues in your foundations.

The homeowners were excited with this idea, and we sent out our installation team!
