    I was impressed by all the folks I worked with. I appreciated the "pre-work" inspector for a 2nd pair of eyes. When you deal with an expensive repair, it was good to know I was making an informed decision and the best one for the future of the house.

    After having an extrememly negative experience with a contractor I was hesitant for other work to be done on my home. I could not have asked for a better experience than Midwest Basement Systems. The communication was top notch, the installation was smooth and I don't have a negative thing to say about any part of the process, from calling for the estimate to deciding to have the work done.

    Customer Testimonial

              I was very impressed with your company, especially the office staff. They made sure that I was ready for the job to be done and gave me reminder calls. Jesse did an excellent job at explaining everything. I didn't plan on having my crawlspace lined, but he talked me into it. I am sure glad I did. I was recommended to this company by a friend who had work on his foundation completed and was amazed by the results. I appreciated that they got the job done in 2 days and that it didn't stretch over the holiday weekend. Josh was very courteous and was patient with me, I appreciate that, as well! The crew did such a great job. You could tell that they had great teamwork and Josh was a great leader!
