The Ideal Waterproofing and Foundation Pros In Des Moines
Welcome to B.A.M! Basements and Masons Central Iowa’s premier basement and foundation repair company! B.A.M! is a local business founded in 2012 by Mark Williams. After working several years with different basement repair companies, Mark saw a need for better value and customer service in the industry, so he decided to open his own business. He chose the motto, “Every consideration given to total customer satisfaction with the highest quality workmanship,” the pillar of the B.A.M! name.
The business originally started with the name “All Basements and More.”
Then, in 2013, it acquired Larry Heck and his masonry business, Heck, Inc. With Larry, we have gained 50 years of experience in the masonry industry. The name B.A.M! has grown quite catchy around town, so to preserve its integrity, the company was thus renamed “Basements and Masons.” A new chapter had begun.
Together, we at B.A.M! will cultivate our reputation for excellent service, quality workmanship, and an exceptional customer experience. With our motto in mind and a smile on our face, we look forward to helping the people of Central Iowa improve their homes. Call us today at: 515-963-0226to learn how we can help.

Mark Williams is the owner of B.A.M!, and father of 4 beautiful daughters with 4 grandsons and one precious granddaughter.
Mark has worked in the waterproofing and foundation repair industry for over 15 years and has over 34 years of experience in the construction industry overall. He has earned a reputation in Central Iowa of exceeding expectations and possesses a well-rounded expertise that few in the industry can claim.
Mark looks forward to getting down into the basement, finding a solution for the customer, and helping them to understand their problem.
To Mark, success doesn’t mean having a nice car and a big house while his employees rent apartments and drive clunkers, and his customers pay too much money for a low-quality solution. A successful company is one where everybody does well, all employees are happy, and B.A.M! customers are satisfied for the life of their home.
Mark strives to bring back old-fashioned integrity with a modern look by taking strong values and combining them with modern technology. He says, “Too many companies let modern technology take over their values and customer service and this makes them lose the WOW experience for their customers.”
Most clients love Jeremy because of his ability to walk clients through complete job solutions and what to expect throughout the process. Jeremy’s extensive masonry background make it possible to find the best solution for clients.
Jeremy says “Visualization and proper planning come into play when dealing with existing construction. Reverse engineering, stabilization and retaining integrity of the existing structure is paramount.”
“When starting work with B.A.M I could see that Mark’s ideals were aligned with mine as far as how to treat our clients and the quality of work that needs to be in place. Proper installation, quality materials, respect for clients, ability to adapt to each unique situation and find a solution.
These are just a few examples of what makes a company successful. B.A.M is becoming a success story and that’s what being a part of this company is. I pride myself on being part of this growth and to the future of this company.”
