Tearing down drywall and pulling up carpet to deal with a water problem in your finished basement is one of the last things you want to do as a homeowner, but when water finds its way in, you want to feel confident that it will get fixed right the first time. For this homeowner in Forest City, Iowa, we were able to waterproof his basement with our drainage system and vapor barrier so that he could reclaim his personal exercise space and restore his peace of mind.

These homeowners were concerned about their uneven floors. They were already planning to have their radon mitigated, so they decided to have some work done in their crawlspace as well.

They gave us a call for a free estimate, so we sent System Design Specialist James Denning to look at the crawlspace and determine if they were causing the floors to sag. James found that there was a damp, musty smell coming from the crawlspace due to excess moisture in the air, which was also causing the floor supports to weaken. After discussing the options with James and seeing the pre-mailer book they received about crawlspace repairs, they decided to have us take care of their crawlspace repairs. Our team determined that they needed to bury the downspouts so that water could not get into the crawlspace and cause problems with moisture. The team then installed Silver Gloe Insulation to help save on energy cost for the homeowners. Finally, our team addressed the support problems by using SmartJacks and adding supplemental beams to even out the floor as well as installing a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to finish protecting the support beams from moisture. 

The homeowners were so glad that they had us help with their crawlspace. They were grateful that we were able to work with and around their Radon company as well. Check out their newly secured crawlspace!

Job Stories From Forest City, IA
Basement Waterproofing in Forest City, IA

One of the worst nightmares for a homeowner with a finished basement is water damage. This was the case for Derek A. in Forest City, Iowa, who noticed that water was coming in from the west wall of his finished basement. As the son of a farmer, Derek was raised to believe that if you fix something, you fix it the right way, and so he called us at Midwest Foundation Repair.

After completing a thorough inspection of the space, we proposed a combination of our WaterGuard drainage system along the west wall, as well as CleanSpace vapor barrier to ensure the space would remain clean and dry from top to bottom. This home was located far beyond the service area of most other contractors, and blizzard conditions at the time required that we adapt to the situation, but in the end Derek has thrilled to have the work completed so he could return his basement to normal.
