As you can see, this section of concrete has settled at the seam or joint. For several years it was a small duck pond holding water after local rain. With our revolutionary PolyLEVEL system we were able to restore the sidewalk slap back to level, and do it at a fraction of the cost of replacement. The concrete cosmetically is the same color and matches the surroundings.
This Egress window was replaced and so it doesn't leak and still lets light into the basement.

Erik had one inch of water standing in his basement during heavy rains. Water was almost always leaking into his basement every time it rained. He knew this was because his walls were bowing in which caused them to crack. He was aware that this was a foundation issue, and decided he needed to get it fixed as soon as possible, to make sure his home stays structurally stable.
Midwest Basement Systems made sure his home would stay around for many years to come. They installed PowerBraces around his bowing walls, as well as a WaterGuard system that led to a sump pump. Several EverLast basement windows were installed, along with SunHouse window enclosures to prevent any water from entering the basement. His basement has been dry ever since!
John was fixing up some things around his house and noticed there was something wrong with the walls in his basement. He noticed that water was coming into his basement through several wall cracks. He called Midwest Basement Systems as soon as possible for help in preventing the water intrusion and fixing the wall cracks.
We were able to solve John's problems by first installing PowerBraces which will correct the bowing in his wall creating the cracks. Afterwards, we installed WaterGuard, a below floor drainage system, that will keep his basement permanently dry. John was very happy with what we did and plans to use us for any future work needed!
Marshall was fixing up the basement and noticed that he needed a new Sump Pump so he called Midwest Basement Systems. We told him that we could come out to his house to give him a free quote to install a sump pump.
We went out to his home and when he found out the price, he was sold! He immediately scheduled an appointment to receive it. We installed it and Marshall was very pleased with our work!
Dean was talking to his neighbors about having water in their basements and Dean wanted to prevent that in his home. As soon as he got inside, he called Midwest Basement Systems. We went out to his house and explained to him the process basement waterproofing - Dean decided this is how he wanted to protect his home.
We started by installing a WaterGuard drainage system. WaterGuard is a piping system that goes all the way around the perimeter of the basement to prevent water from flooding the space. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing, instead of alongside the footing. This is important to know because the mud can't get into the drain and clog it. WaterGuard will help to keep Dean's basement dry for many years to come!
Mike has lived in his house for about ten years and he was noticing some different smells and mold in his house. He has little kids running around his house all the time and he was thinking that he needed to get this fixed. He called Midwest Basement Systems and asked one of our System Designer Specialists come out to talk to him about the issue. We told him that we needed to install a dehumidifier in his crawl space and do some other work throughout the whole crawl space.
We went through the steps of repairing his crawl space. The steps to repair it is to fix the ground water leakage, isolate the house form the earth, and seal out outside air. Mike is grateful for the work performed that made his home a healthier, safer, place!
Erica was working around her house and noticed that her furniture was not sitting correctly on the floor. She called Midwest Basement Systems as soon as she saw the problem. We sent out our expert, Tom, to look at the problem. Tom diagnosed that her floors were sagging and she need SmartJacks to raise the floor back up and prevent the problem from happening in the future.
SmartJacks are metal beams that are supporting the floor to prevent the problem of sagging floors happening again. We sent out our production team and they installed SmartJacks. Erica was very happy with the work. She noticed a huge difference.
Jeremy was working in the yard this past weekend and noticed his driveway has been sinking. He wanted to get it fixed because he had a lot of kids walking past his house and he didn't want them to trip and fall. He called us that day and scheduled an appointment to have one of our experts come out and give him a free quote. The expert told him that he would need to get his driveway and sidewalk fixed.
The process was to fix the sunken conrete with Polylevel. Polylevel is the process that we use to fix the sunken concrete. Polylevel takes the original concept of mudjacking and combines it with modern technology. Instead of using mud and concrete, we use high-density polymers to raise slabs back to desired level.
We did the work for Jeremy when is was nice outside and he was very happy with the results. He told the crew that he would recommend that process to anybody else.
