    Customer Review

    By Rod F.

    This is a GREAT place to work. I had my home repaired by Midwest Basement Systems in 2001 before I ever starting working here. I was impressed from the moment I called. My project was handled very efficiently and at a much lower cost than I had thought. Trust me....working here and having their products in my house I would recommend Midwest Basement Systems to anyone.

    By Young Grandma

    Great service, and great work. We had a french drain system installed in our semi-finished basement in fall 2008 (after the big floods). True, the two work days were noisy and messy, but everything was completely cleaned up before they left -- including grass seed on the unavoidable tire tracks on the lawn. The areas where the drains were installed were finished flush with the existing flooring, too. The annual service calls to keep up the warranty were simple (and on time), and the basement has been DRY no matter how wet the outside's gotten. Also, the customer service after the sale has been great. I needed replacement paperwork, and the friendly phone rep said she'd send them right out -- no hassles at all. Basement waterproofing is a big expense, but worth it, and Midwest Basement did such a good job for us that I recommend them without reservation.

    I was impressed with the installers when I tried to save them steps to the house by telling them to drive the truck closer and they wouldn't because of the septic fields. They cleaned up so well and my husband who has been against getting this fixed, has now been telling everyone what solid supports they are and the guarantee is lifetime....so thanks once again.
