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.
Marshall was fixing up the basement and noticed that he needed a new Sump Pump so he called Midwest Basement Systems. We told him that we could come out to his house to give him a free quote to install a sump pump.
We went out to his home and when he found out the price, he was sold! He immediately scheduled an appointment to receive it. We installed it and Marshall was very pleased with our work!
Doug was hanging out in his basement watching TV and noticed spots on his floor. He immediately knew that it was water because he had received a lot of rain in the past week. He called Midwest Basement Systems and we went out to evaluate the problem. Our System Designer let Doug know how we could help him, which would be installing a WaterGuard Drainage System. Doug had no hesitation and said yes to us doing the work.
Our production team went out and installed the WaterGuard which took a few days. WaterGuard is designed not to clog, does not rely on filter fabric, has a big drain outlet to the sump, and will not cause structural damage to the foundation. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing, instead of alongside the footing. This will prevent the mud going into the drain. Doug was impressed by our work.
Al noticed some uneven concrete areas in front of his house and wanted them to be fixed. The uneven concrete had created dangerous tripping hazards. He called Midwest Basement Systems and we visited his property to let him know how we could help him solve his problem. Al was ready to do it as soon as possible.
Our production team went out to Ames and leveled his concrete by drilling a hole into the ground and raising the concrete through that drilled hole by injecting PolyLevel. This process does not take long and it does not make a big mess. Al was very happy with the way it turned out that he said he would recommend us next time somebody needs help!
Craig was working on his basement one Saturday afternoon and realized there were damp parts of the carpet. He was concerned on where those spots were coming from. Monday morning Craig made a call out to Midwest Basement Systems and asked to make an appointment. Taylor was happy to schedule him with one of our experts Kyle. Kyle went out and took a look at the issues and told Craig that something needed to be done before we receive a big rain.
Kyle told him that he should have our WaterGuard installed. WaterGuard is a piping system engineered specifically to be a very efficient and long lasting interior perimeter basement waterproofing system. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing instead of alongside the footing. This is important because the mud can't get into the drain.
Craig signed the contract and made an appointment for Julio to come out to his house and get the work done. Julio finished the job and Craig was very happy with how it was done. He was very happy with the whole process he went through to get this done. He is very happy that there is a lifetime transferable warranty on the job that was completed.
