    By Jerry &.
    Denver, IA

    Everyone we dealt with at Midwest Basement Systems were professional, friendly and very helpful. Eric, our salesman, took the time to go thru all of the ways the basement could be fixed but also explained why some would not work for us and which ones would. Jason, the inspector, came out the week before to make sure everything was ready for the crew. Answered any other questions we had and made suggestions for us. Steve and his crew for the actual work were excellent and explained what & why they were doing everything as they went along. The cement crew was just an efficient. Since we have an old house we had to have alittle more work done as we had to have the cement floor tore out and replaced. There was barely any dust throughout the house afterwards. The cleanup the crew did was excellent. We defintely would recommend Midwest Basements to anyone having issues with their basements.

    We have not yet had a significant rain storm, so the actual operation and dependability is yet to be proven. Perhaps a follow up call to demonstrate the systems operation with a hose would be comforting.
