A collapsing retaining wall that sits beneath a driveway that supports a bridge to the homes garage was in need of replacement.
Street creep had pushed against the wall to the point of its collapse. Midwest Basement Systems replaced the wall with a new poured wall supported by stable fill to keep the pressure conditions consistent.
We also placed helical tiebacks on two other retaining walls.

Problems with your foundation can seem like a tiresome thing to have to deal with, but we have the products that can help. Foundation disrepair is often caused by broken or weakened soil that cannot support the weight of the structure.
This issue can be resolved by installing foundation piers and jack posts which will use stable soil farther down beneath the house. As well, by installing helical piers, I-Beam wall braces or wall anchors, you can permanently correct bowing, leaning walls as well as improve the structural integrity of the house. This process can work with both residential and commercial foundation problems.
A flooded basement or a sump pump problem can seem like a huge problem. However, we have the products to help remedy the problem and make your basement a dry, clean space again. Some of the major symptoms of a waterproofing problem are damp floors or walls, pooling or standing water crystaline deposits on concrete surfaces, musty odors, and condensation. For crawl spaces, many of the warning signs are the same with the addition of wood rot and sagging floors in the house.
When waterproofing problems occur, whether in a crawl space or a basement, the first step is to install a professional-grade sump pump like the TripleSafe sump pump. By installing vapor barriers, thermal insulation, and dehumidifiers, you can also seal out moisture and bugs while keeping the space dry, clean, and energy-efficient. For problems with sagging floors above a crawl space, jack posts are the sure way to correct failing supports.
Troubles with uneven concrete can cause a serious tripping hazard that can lead to other problems. When concrete in your home, sidewalk or patio begins to sink, then you need the PolyLevel concrete lifting system. The way it works is that the PolyLevel gets injected underneath the concrete slab which raises it to the appropriate height so that it can be even with the concrete surrounding it. This is not only quicker and easier than traditional methods, but also more permanent and cost-effective.
Midwest Basement Systems has the tools necessary to get you back to the way your house is supposed to: clean, dry, and healthy.

Craig was working on his basement one Saturday afternoon and realized there were damp parts of the carpet. He was concerned on where those spots were coming from. Monday morning Craig made a call out to Midwest Basement Systems and asked to make an appointment. Taylor was happy to schedule him with one of our experts Kyle. Kyle went out and took a look at the issues and told Craig that something needed to be done before we receive a big rain.
Kyle told him that he should have our WaterGuard installed. WaterGuard is a piping system engineered specifically to be a very efficient and long lasting interior perimeter basement waterproofing system. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing instead of alongside the footing. This is important because the mud can't get into the drain.
Craig signed the contract and made an appointment for Julio to come out to his house and get the work done. Julio finished the job and Craig was very happy with how it was done. He was very happy with the whole process he went through to get this done. He is very happy that there is a lifetime transferable warranty on the job that was completed.
Al noticed some uneven concrete areas in front of his house and wanted them to be fixed. The uneven concrete had created dangerous tripping hazards. He called Midwest Basement Systems and we visited his property to let him know how we could help him solve his problem. Al was ready to do it as soon as possible.
Our production team went out to Ames and leveled his concrete by drilling a hole into the ground and raising the concrete through that drilled hole by injecting PolyLevel. This process does not take long and it does not make a big mess. Al was very happy with the way it turned out that he said he would recommend us next time somebody needs help!
