    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.

    I have communicated to Nick that you by all means can use me as a reference any time you desire. MBS is the best in my opinion. Kudos also to Jason. When he came out for the pre-contruction walk through he was great. Involved me in the discussion and we made a minor change and he made me feel like I was part of the process. Also when my credit card company screwed up twice in running my charge through he was patient and worked with me to find out what the problem was and we solved it. Great job by all.

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Basement Wall Bracing
    Before
    Basement Wall Bracing
    After

    Wet spring soils swelled up with water pushed this basement wall inward.  As you can see the crack in the wall is opened up wide.  About a half of an inch.  The next photo will show the wall is pushed back and the crack is closing as the wall is straightened.
