Your Home faces Water Damage

1. Iowa, the heartland is flat and fertile for crops but the flat area makes it easy for heavy rainfall to cause local flooding issues.

2. When flooding hits your area, your basement is most likely to be the prime target for water damage.

3. As an entire floor of extra space in your home, your basement is likely the largest single space in your home. If you allow this entire floor of space to be wet, moldy, humid, smelly, and unhealthy, you surrender this space as unusable. Additionally, a home with water in basement is nearly impossible to sell, and the basement air - filled with odors, dust mite feces, humidity, and mold spores - will rise into the rest of the house, ruining the healthy environment of the home.

    I was so impressed by Bill and his crew. I have worked in residential construction and with many different sub contractors and have never met a more professional, organized, considerate team than Bill's. He and his crew are definitely a great asset to your company. The system is being put to the test right away as it is raining now as I type.

    The installation crew was courteous, talkative and fast. Great pains were taken to keep the work area clean. Robbie Stoutenberg is obviously respected. I could see that he is taking care to teach his crew craftsmanship and customer relation. They are a very well organized trio.

Comment: Waterproof

Project Location: W. Broadway St., Decorah, IA 52101

Comment: Need estimate for stopping basement leakage coming from 40ft length of basement wall. Looking for best method and cost. exterior of wall is accessible by digging. Leakage occurs only during a winter thaw.

Project Location: West Street, Decorah, IA 52101

Comment: Our basement flooded this last August 2016 following lots and lots of rain. Our basement is "semi-finished" living space - family room, workout room/office, bathroom, and utility/laundry room. Our floors were mostly carpet glued to cement flooring. Our walls are primarily painted cinder block with a few finished walls (dry wall). When our basement flooded, we first had sewage backup (mostly clean water, thank goodness). Once this was resolved, our basement continued to leak from cracks in the floor, at floor/wall interfaces, and from the cinder block walls through several cracks. Prior to the flood, there was a corner that would have frequent puddles after hard rains. After the flood, we noticed this corner puddled more frequently, but we also noticed a few other spots on the floor would also puddle. We are interested in a quote for various options to "waterproof" and prevent further water issues to renew and refinish our basement living spaces.
