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.

Des Moines Wall Replacement, Bowing Wall Repair, & Waterproofing

A three-fold job in Des Moines area tested all of our skills by requiring replacement of one wall, while putting braces on two others and waterproofing the entire basement.

Wall Replacement in Des Moines, IA

Jeff noticed his walls were crumbling and falling a part. He talked to our System Design Specialist and wanted to redo the whole wall. He wanted them to take out the old wall and put new cinder blocks in. Jeff also wanted the crew to install WaterGuard. Which that would help prevent water from coming in. 

Block Wall Replacement in Des Moines, IA

Homeowner was very concerned about his wall that was cracking. He called Midwest Basement Systems to have a system design specialist out to get a free quote. The expert told the homeowner that he should replace the whole wall. It will prevent anything from happening. The homeowner decided to do the project with us. Chico and his crew went out and did the work. They did a great job and the homeowner was very pleased with our work. 

Concrete Leveling

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.
