Job Stories From Grinnell, IA
PowerBraces Installed in Grinnell, IA

Ryan noticed that he had cracks in his basement walls. He called Midwest Basement Systems as soon as he saw those because he knew it could only get worse. He set up an appointment for one of our System Designer Specialists to come out and give him a free quote. Our Specialist inspected the house and noticed the walls caving in. He told Ryan that he should have PowerBraces installed which would help stop the bowing and potentially bring the wall back to it's original position. Ryan went through with the proposed solution. We had a foreman come out and install the PowerBraces.

Need two quotes for leveling sidewalk and the second for leveling the cement outside the garage door. My sister takes possession of this house (she lives in Colorado right now and moving back)on Thursday the 12th and we'd like to have it done as soon as possible on the 12th or the 13th the at the latest. The sidewalk is very dangerous and needs to be taken care of right away. Thank you for your help. Please give me a call and I will get with my sister and hopefully we can get it done in that timeframe. Thank you very much Rita Mcvey

Water entering in basement through foundation - I believe basement has been waterproofed, but I still deal with water coming in.
Reed Street in Grinnell
I'm looking at buying a home at the above location. The basement wall has failed in the past and has since been repaired with both anchors and spring tension I beams. I was hoping for a rough quote before purchase.
Hobart Pl in Grinnell
Question re: mudjacking. We're purchasing the above referenced home in Grinnell, however, we won't have possession until Dec 1. One panel in the driveway needs to be lifted 1-2" via mudjacking or the Poly substitute. Needing an estimate on how much that is and can it be done in early Dec, or will that be too cold. Thanks!
Prairie Street in Grinnell
I have a house in Grinnell I am flipping and the concrete drive in front of the garage needs to be brought up higher. I have not measured it but I think it's about 1 1/2 - 2 inches low. It's a double car garage. I am looking for price quotes and time frame. Tom

An area about 10 square feet comprised of 4 sections of "sidewalk" (flat slab) which has settled unevenly.
Prince St in Grinnell
I had a system installed a few years ago (wall braces, trenching, sump pump). My sump is spewing sewer water into my front yard. I had a local contractor come to try to clear my floor drains that are backing up into my basement. He could not clear the drain near the sump pump, and recommended I contact MBS since it involves / is a result of your work. I phoned a couple of days ago and was promised a call back. I did not receive a return call, nor did anyone answer today. My yard and house reek of sewer, which is unacceptable, especially with young children in the home.

Okay, this may be asking a lot, but please bear with me at this time. We are interested in an old farm house, however, they still have the old limestone walls in part of the basement, part of the basement floor is unfinished and still dirt, and other parts of the basement have had water in them. We are interested in a ball park figure of how much it would cost to completely redo the basement walls, sealing them up, and finishing the floor. If you could just give me an estimated cost, or cost per sq foot at this time I would greatly appreciate it. I am sure there are a lot of factors to consider, but I would prefer if you over estimated, or gave us a quote for the best/most that you could do for a basement like this I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Kristin

I just bought an old house (built before 1900) with some foundation issues including deteriorating mortar and some settling. There are some 1st floor joists that need reinforcing or leveling. I will need to make sure the foundation is solid before I start renovating the rest of the house.
in Grinnell
We have 2 floor drains in the basement that this is the 4th time since we have moved here once last year and 3 times this year where the water backs up through those drains. We have no permanent sump pumps installed. We are thinking that it is tied to a field tile and it is plugged somewhere.
