This homeowner noticed that one of his foundation walls was caving in. He was concerned that this wall would cause many problems in the future, so he decided to give us a call. We sent System Design Specialist Todd King to inspect the wall and determine what was causing it to cave inwards as well as how we could help to fix this problem. When Todd arrives at this house, he saw that the wall was experiencing wall failure as pressure form the soil surrounding the foundation had caused this wall to bow inwards over time. Todd discussed this with the homeowner and determined that an EverBrace System would help to lock in and secure this wall for many years to come. Our installation team came out and installed just that, leaving the homeowner happy that his old farmhouse that was 3 generations of history for his family could continue to stand strong.

Tama received a lot of rain therefore causing Tama homeowner Larry to call Midwest Basement Systems. He was concerned about the water that was coming into his basement. We told him that our System Designer, Tyler, would come out to his home and look at the problem.
Tyler visited Larry and noticed that he needed a new Sump Pump. We installed a new Sump Pump complete with a battery back up so in the event of a power outage, Larry's basement will still be protected!
Scott and Kathy B. were having issues with their existing sump pump which was causing flooding in their basement. Not sure what to do, they called Midwest Foundation Repair. We arrived and did a thorough free inspection. Upon investigating the problem it was easy to discover that the sump was not actively pumping water. We were able to resolve that problem and also added a battery backup which will help mitigate these issues moving forward. Once the battery was installed we made sure to do a load test which it passed.
The customers had peace of mind that their problem was solved and that they would not have to worry about it in the future.
Collin R. in Buckingham, Iowa wanted to transform his basement into the perfect place to relax after a hard days work, his ‘Man Cave’, but before he could do that, he had to do something about the water down there. Water was finding its way into the basement, making the space damp and musty smelling - two things that had to be resolved before he could begin finishing and furnishing the space. That’s when he called Midwest Foundation Repair.
After performing a thorough inspection, we proposed installing a drainage system along the basement perimeter, directing any water into the sump pump where it could then be discharged away from the home. Next, to address any dampness from the block walls, we sealed the basement walls with CleanSpace vapor barrier, ensuring the space would remain clean and dry for any finishing work. Collin felt like he was getting good value for his investment, and knew he could count on us to do the work when we said we would - a commitment many contractors struggle to make good on.
Once the work was complete, Collin was thrilled and excited to start finishing and turning his new happy place. As a team of hard working people, we appreciate the opportunity to help another hard working person enjoy some well earned relaxation.
