Midwest Basement Systems got a phone call from Dan talking about how he wanted to sell his house but needed to get his basement walls fixed. He needed one of our experts to come out and give him a quote at no cost to him. He had Tom, our System Design Specialist, come out and talk to Dan about how he will need Power Braces on his basement wall. He wanted Tom to explain that to him because he didn't know what those were. 

Tom explained that they are beams that will go against the wall that is bowing and they will help them move back into place and prevent it from happening again. 

Dan was very pleased with what they can do so he booked the work to be done. He had Matt and his crew come out and fix the walls. Dan was very pleased with what was done with the wall and how Matt was as a foreman. He was impressed that Matt cleaned up after himself and made it look as new as it could.

Here is an example of older, non sealed sump pump system and its replacement with the triple safe system and a SaniDry dehumidification system.  The older system had a smaller sump basket, and less inlets supplying water to one pump. The new system has a much larger sump basket, 3 pumps, and a state of the art battery back up system.

We get asked all of the time, Do I need to remove all of the drywall, or can I cut a section out?  And, when I cut a section out how do I get it replaced.  Here is and example of cutting 32 inches of drywall out, and when the waterproofing job is completed, replacing the removed section of wall with our revolutionary ZenWall systems and trim.

Professional Basement and Crawl Space Repair in Des Moines, IA

At Midwest Basement Systems we put customer service first and are proud to serve our area. Our team of trained technicians use only high quality materials from the best manufacturers in the business to ensure that you get only the best results. We want to work with you to find the solution that will work best for you!

Common causes of basement waterproofing problems are often stemmed from leaky pipes, flooding during heavy rainfall, or sump pump failures. These problems can be fixed with products like a professional-grade TripleSafe sump pump, specially designed with three pumps to ensure that you won't have to worry about your basement being flooded, even if the power goes out. Additionally, also offer thermal insulation and quality drainage systems to deposit water pumped out of your basement a safe distance away from the foundations. 

Symptoms of a waterproofing problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor
  • Leaking or damp basement walls
  • Pooling or standing water
  • Crystaline deposit on concrete surfaces
  • Musy odors
  • Condensation
  • Sump pump issues
  • Leaky basement windows

Crawl spaces can often fall into disrepair a little to easily because of their location in the home as well as their function. When a crawl space is left in disrepair for too long, it can become a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and even wood rot. The way to remedy this is to install quality products like vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and sump pumps. 

Friendly Residential and Commercial Foundation Repairs

If you have problems with your foundations, then it is probably caused by broken, weakened soil that can no longer support the weight of the structure. Some of the major signs of this are sagging floors, cracked floors or walls, foundation heaves, or tilting chimneys. These problems can seem like a daunting task to try and solve, but with our products like wall anchors and jack posts, they can be fixed quickly with permanent results. 

For commercial foundation repairs, we offer top-of-the-line helical anchors and tiebacks. These offer stability to foundation walls and retaining walls with unbalanced earth pressures. These helical piers are versatile, have predictable capacity, and have clean installation with no messy grout. These as well as our other products like push pier systems and helical pile systems are sure to correct foundation and stability issues in your foundations. 

Spectacular Concrete Lifting in Des Moines, IA

Having trouble with uneven concrete in your home, sidewalk or patio? Worried about the safety hazard that it poses? We can help with our top-of-the-line PolyLevel concrete lifting system. The PolyLevel injection is unique because it gets injected under the concrete so that it can be lifted to be the same height as the concrete around it. This process is not only a quicker, easier process, but it's also more permanent and cost-effective.
