Crawl Space gets a complete makeover in Hudson, IA



High humidity, standing water and sagging floors. These are the smyptoms a homeowner in Hudson, Iowa reported to Midwest Basement Systems we he sought to our help. The issues all stemmed from a crawl space. 

The cral space was made of clay so water could not properly drain on its own. This water led to the building humidity and excess moisture, which led to rotting support jacks underneath the floors, which eventually led to the sagging floors in the home. 

The production team installed a sump pump to drain the standing water, drain matting and CleanSpace barrier to reduce moisture buildup, and new rim joists to stabilize where the floors had started to sag. This extremem rennovation not only helped to solve the homeowners problems, but also prevents them from reoccuring in the future. This is how we help restore our customers' peave of mind!

Basement Wall Bracing



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. 

Bowing Walls Corrected with PowerBraces in Des Moines, IA



This was a home that had been sitting on the market for quite some time due to its foundation issues. The home was beautiful other than the bowing and cracking in the unfinished basement walls. PowerBraces were installed to stabilize the failing walls. PowerBraces can be tightened over time, potentially returning the wall to it's original straight state.
