Gary H. was tired of having a musty odor in his basement each time it rained. He spends a lot of time in his basement, and it is very cold and drafty and a lot of excess moisture. Looking for a solution, he decided to call Midwest.
System Design Specialist Frank Lindsey went out to his home. Frank was able to see that the crawl space is attached to the basement and was creating a draft and musty odor. The crew installed drainage matting and CleanSpace to encapsulate the crawl space, so the walls would remain dry. We also removed existing insulation from the floor joists and ceiling. To keep the rest of the basement dry, WaterGuard was also put in, to direct the water out of the basement into the sump pump.
St. Patrick's Church council members in Nevada, Iowa were concerned because the parishioners could potentially trip and fall on the concrete ledge leading to the entrance of the social hall. One of the council members recommended they call us at Midwest, so we came out to assess the problem.
We sent System Design Specialist Nick Wessling to assess what was causing this tripping hazard at the entrance. He determined that a poorly designed downspout was releasing water right next to the concrete entrance, so the water was washing out the soil underneath the concrete entrance. After discussion with the council members, Nick and his team got to work on fixing this tripping hazard. They replaced the nearby downspout with a buried downspout leading away from the concrete. Also, they utilized our 2-part Concrete Protection System which includes PolyLevel Concrete Leveling and NexusPro Cracked Concrete Repair to lift and seal the concrete entrance.
The church members were so excited when this project was done. Check out this church entrance repair!
This customer had a dirt crawlspace that was causing problems like moisture, cold air, warm air, and bugs getting into their home. To fix this, we used CleanSpace encapsulation and drainage matting. The CleanSpace was attached to the walls with special wall anchors to keep out moisture and other things from outside. It was also installed on the dirt floor to stop moisture from the soil and groundwater. The drainage matting helped with the waterproofing too. We suggested installing a sump pump or smart drain to remove any water that might come in. With the combination of smart drains, drainage matting, CleanSpace, and sump pumps, the homeowner now has a protected and safe crawlspace that can be used for storage without worry.

Greg was working around the house one day and noticed that his basement walls were caving in. He was concerned about the issue and wanted to get it fixed before it got wrose. He immediately called Midwest Basement Systems. We told him that we could get out to his house as soon as possible.
When we went out to his house we knew his wall was the result of structural failure. We recommended PowerBraces be used to stabilize and straighten his wall. Greg told us to do whatever we needed to do. We were going to install Power Braces to stablize the failing foundation walls. Each beam was secured to the concrete floor at the base and to the wood floor system at the top to insure this problem would not happen again.
