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!

Michael had a sump pit with a pump that was supposed to keep his basement dry. However, after it rained he noticed a funky smell in his basement and saw that there was water entering his home.
He called Midwest Basement Systems to set up an appointment. He was then equipped with a TripleSafe sump pump, an IceGuard, and LawnScape Outlet. The IceGuard will prevent flooding from a frozen discharge line and the LawnScape outlet helps drainage be seemless in grass. Now Michael doesn't have to worry about his basement flooding.
Greg was working around the house one day and noticed that his basement walls were caving in. He was concerned about the issue and wanted to get it fixed before it got wrose. He immediately called Midwest Basement Systems. We told him that we could get out to his house as soon as possible.
When we went out to his house we knew his wall was the result of structural failure. We recommended PowerBraces be used to stabilize and straighten his wall. Greg told us to do whatever we needed to do. We were going to install Power Braces to stablize the failing foundation walls. Each beam was secured to the concrete floor at the base and to the wood floor system at the top to insure this problem would not happen again.
