In the Midwest, many times the basement floor is cold.  A very fashionable way to combat the cold is to lay down Thermal Flooring.  These photos show the uncovered gray concrete standing on the stairs facing away, and the after photo shows the thermal flooring with an in-lay.

Dampness in the basement.
Beechtree Dr in West Des Moines
Could you please quote to raise one step by the front porch and possibly the sidewalk next to that step if needed. The step up to the porch is not equal to the first step and we are worried someone might fall.
Meadow Ln in West Des Moines
During the last storm, my sump pump did not kick on. When I removed the switch and plugged it directly into the wall, it worked. There are several cords coming from the pump (4, I think-I'm guessing two pumps and two switches) and I need help sorting it all out and ensuring that the pump kicks on next time it is needed.
Woodland Ave in West Des Moines
I have a pretty good drainage/tile system around my home. In 10 years and through the floods of 08, 10, and this past weekend...fortunately we haven't had any water in the basement. However, the sump pump that is in place probably should be replaced with a system that has a battery or water-flow backup. Also, it is tied into our radon mitigation system so I want to make sure that a professional performs the work as I believe this is beyond my DIY capabilities. Looking for some guidance. Thanks.
Aspen Drive in West Des Moines
We have a less than 2 year old house and this winter found a 2-3 foot section of the carpet wet along the foundation. Again over the weekend when it rained, the same section of carpet was wet. Not a huge hurry (especially with everyone else in the metro probably needing your help right now) but something we need to have looked at.

Basement flooded this weekend. Need an estimate for waterproofing the basement.
Parkside Circle in West Des Moines
Our sump pump float got stuck during torrential rains last night and caused minor basement flooding, as we were able to get it loose and the pump began working properly. We are not sure what caused the malfunction. Our sump pump is two-three years old, but we are looking at upgrading to prevent this from happening again. I was curious about the triple sump pump system.

VERY leaky basement

Water flows out our basement wall every time the sump pump turns on. Can you fix it?
Marcourt Lane in West Des Moines
We had one of your systems installed in July 2013 and have water in our basement after last nights storm. It is more speepage than true puddling so less of a priority than most of your contact currently I'm sure but it is something that will need to be addressed. I am unable to get through on your phone line- it rings then drops me.
