Street Creep Causes Crumbling Foundation in Urbandale, IA

This homeowner was concerned with their crawlspace foundation wall, which was gradually tipping in from the top due to street creep pushing the garage slab into the back foundation wall. This situation created many risks, including potential harm to the structural integrity of the garage and the homeowner's peace of mind. To solve this problem, we installed wall anchors to ensure their stability and prevent any further deterioration of the walls. Additionally, we installed CompressionGuards to reduce the damage caused by street creep and stop any future issues. Our approach ensured that the homeowner could rest easy, knowing their garage was secure and their house's resale value would not be compromised.

Basement Waterproofing in Urbandale, IA

Geoff D. was planning to sell his home in a couple of years, but there was a big problem that he wanted to fix before he did - water in the basement.


The carpet and drywall in the basement was being ruined by water getting in, making it so that he could not utilize this space as a living area. This was a big cause of concern for the homeowner, and something he didn’t want to leave for the next owner to fix. Geoff wanted to work with a company he could trust to do the job right, and someone who would stand behind their work for the years ahead. With over 25 years of waterproofing basements throughout Iowa, Midwest Foundation Repair was the right company for the job.


After inspecting the basement to identify the problem areas, we installed our Waterguard drainage system to capture any water that made it’s way in and direct it to the sump pump. We also installed Cleanspace vapor barrier along the basement walls to protect the drywall and make the space clean, dry and safe.


The customer was very pleased with our solutions, and can rest easier knowing that the next owner of his home will never know the stress of dealing with a wet basement.

Bowing walls in Urbandale, IA

These homeowners noticed staircase cracks and bowing walls in their home. They took awhile to have the problem fixed so it got worse on the same spot but also around the whole house. They had Midwest Basement Systems come and take a look at the problem and told them what we could do. The homeowners were very pleased that it wasn't a lot of work and it could get done in one day. They signed the contract and had Matt and his crew come out and do the work.
