Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

Before After
Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair Ames, IA Street Creep Retaining Wall Repair

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.

McCarthy Rd in Ames
My husband and I just bought a house and moved in a little over a week ago. Several days ago I discovered water on the floor in a portion of the basement. I was hoping for a cost estimate on a solution for leaky basement walls. We are also interested in having an egress window installed in the future and would like an estimate for that as well.

Hampton St in Ames
I am a carpenter and I have a customer that needs a small concrete slab adjusted. The slab is at the bottom of the front steps and needs to be raised so the front is level with or slightly above the sidewalk level. Apparently the association they live with has certain rules about what is acceptable. I just need an estimate of what it would take to fix it. If you are available to check it out and get back to me that would be fantastic!

Marigold Dr. in Ames
1. I'd like to see what my basement needs before finishing it off. The home is 10-15 years old, has a sump pump, and has had no major water damage. However, I want an expert to look at it and identify potential problems, if any. 2. I have three slabs of concrete around my home that need to be lifted. I'd like estimates for this work. Thank you. Tina
Meadowlane Ave in Ames
Most concerning is a stairstep crack in our basement wall. We are also noticing some drywall cracks around doors & windows. Also a few cracks in the foundation that are visible from the outside.
Northridge Parkway in Ames
I'm looking to have a complete sump redo on a new (to us) home purchase. We'd like a new primary sump and add a battery backup system. The house is also about to be radon mitigated and would like to get an airtight lid that is compatible with that process without having to glue/seal the sump that way. This would be on or after May 3rd.
