    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.

    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.

    Your staff was extremely attentive and willing to work with my unusual situation. They were timely, efficient, knowledgeable and courteous. I would especially like to acknowledge Jason and the crew that was at my house (Matt and Jason I think...) My only complaint is that you are very expensive. I'd love to have done the whole system, but could not afford to do the floor so I stuck with the vapor barrier installed by a previous builder.

    Customer Review

    By Joyce N.
    Osceola, IA

    My only regreat is that we changed the way that the washer empties - I wish we had gone ahead and put it back the way it was, emptying into the sanitary system instead of into the in-floor drainage. I can't do more than one or 2 loads and it wants to back up in the floor drain. Would maybe like to get that put back to drain into the main sewer system again if Andy could come back and do that for me. But I am already recommending you guys to other people and showing it to people who come to see me. I am VERY happy with it and with your company.

    Customer Testimonial

              Midwest basement had by far the best presentation. I was wanting to install only 4beams at a time, other companies told me they would do it that way if I wanted; Midwest Basement explained to me if it was done that way it would have to be done correctly the first time or not at all, then explained in detail why it needed to be done all at one time. It was this honesty that sold me.

    After

    Here is an example of older, non sealed sump pump system and its replacement with the triple safe system and a SaniDry dehumidification system.  The older system had a smaller sump basket, and less inlets supplying water to one pump. The new system has a much larger sump basket, 3 pumps, and a state of the art battery back up system.

    Wood Wall Foundation Repair in Johnston, IA
    After

    Wood is one of the rarest foundation types as well as one of the trickiest to deal with. 

    When a wood wall is bowing it requires not only a brace but also horizontal supports on the top and bottom of the wall.
