Why Do Iowa Basements & Crawl Spaces Get Wet?

Flooded basement: Iowa, the heartland is flat and fertile for crops but the flat area makes it easy for heavy rainfall to cause local flooding issues. When flooding hits your area, your basement is most likely to be the prime target for water damage.

Other wet basement signs: There are many possible sources for pooling water, damp basement walls or flooring, and high humidity. These include: rusty basement windows, poor grading around the foundation, leaks through cracks in the foundation, saturated soils, simple plumbing failures, and poorly functioning drainage or sump pump systems. A basement already musty and damp is ill-prepared for the next bad rainstorm! Basement waterproofing can address the underlying issues, prevent future water damage and improve the indoor air quality.

Nothing but good things to say about him and his crew. Kept me informed from start to finish. Worked with me when I wanted to make changes from the original agreement. I would have them back again to do work.

    So far, so good! The staff we've met have been great ambassadors for your company. Dan was friendly, professional, and communicated your company's desire to do exceptional work. Dillon and Doug faced extremely challenging conditions and unexpected obstacles with our basement. They were always positive and encouraging. They displayed an incredible work ethic! Dillon and Doug were as careful with our house and belongings as we imagine they would be with their own or a family member's. Competitive pricing. Responsive staff.

    I chose MidAmerica Basement Systems becasue I read several reviews from satisfied customers and have personally known Troy Hamilton (sales rep) since 5th grade. Dillon and his crew did tremendous work - very nice, professional, and courteous. Thankfully Dillon and David showed up on Thursday and finished the job in one day. Again, they did a tremendous job and we are very pleased with the final product. They also did an excellent job cleaning up and left hardly any trace of them being here. Troy Hamilton and Dan Garner did a very good job explaining the system, how it works, what was involved with the installation, warranty, pricing, etc.

    Dillon H. and Doug S. did an exceptional job finishing our basement with Ever last walls. Our 100 year old basement was extremely difficult to finish. All the walls were crooked and it took more material than originally projected. They had to reconfigure the measurements and it turned out to be one of their most challenging jobs to date. The job that was preformed was out of the ordinary and done to our very satisfaction. Dillon and Doug thought out of the box to complete our project. We would recommend Mid-American Basement Systems, Dillon, and Doug to anyone.

    We are overall VERY satisfied with the company and the work performed. Cole did a great job explaining all that would be done with the job and didn't put any pressure on us to do the project. He went above and beyond when we ran into some unexpected problems. They were addressed and done right. We would recommend him to anyone! Dillion H. and Doug S. were on time and very polite. They answered all our questions and preformed the project in a professional and experienced manor. This is not as easy job and they are hard workers! We can't say enough good things about them. The cleanup process was done to our satisfaction. We chose your company because all the reviews were above the average compared to all the other companies we looked into using. We are glad that we made the decision to go with MidAmerica Basement Systems. If need any more work done in the future, they will be the company that we will call.

    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.
