Who We Are

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
515-963-0226 to learn how we can help.

BASEMENT WATERPROOFING

Protect Your Valuables And Your Property!
Interior Drain Systems & Dehumidification
Waterproofing is needed when a structure is built at or below ground level. Hydrostatic pressure forces water through cracks in your foundation walls and up through cracks in your floor. It can also cause major structural damage to foundation walls and is likely to contribute to mold, decay, and other moisture related problems. So, before things get worse, call the best B.A.M! Basements in Iowa and make your water problems a thing of the past!

Waterproofing Myths?

Cracks, settlement, & leaks

CLICK TO CALL

Myth: Basement waterproofing doesn’t prevent all leaks.


This is highly dependent on the level of work you are having done. While doing small foundation repairs or foundation sealing will definitely reduce the amount of water leaking into your basement, it won’t be fully eliminated unless a full basement waterproofing service is complete. A good waterproofing contractor will explain all of your different options and guide you through which is best. The fact remains that if you want to keep your entire basement dry, you’ll need to opt for a full service basement waterproofing.

Myth: Black tar paint is all that’s needed to prevent leaks.


If anyone has ever told you that paint will waterproof the foundation wall of your basement, know that that’s simply a myth. A coating of black paint may keep out some vapor, but it is certainly not sufficient for full waterproofing. Waterproofing is based on water diversion — it works with several different methods to keep out unwanted water and lead it somewhere else, away from the home.

Myth: Basement waterproofing is too expensive.


Every basement waterproofing job is a bit different, but prices are largely dependent on the level of work that is being done. While smaller jobs tend to have an average price of $5,000 to $6,000.Regardless of the cost, though, is the peace of mind you’ll get when the waterproofing job is complete. You can’t put a price on never having to worry about having a wet basement again. It’s an investment that is well worth the cost.

Why Is My Foundation Bowing?

- Water freezing inside the soil, causing the soil to expand and push against your foundation.
- Hydrostatic pressure, which can occur when the ground is saturated, causing bowing or
  cracked foundation walls
​​​​​​​

Wall Bracing
 -  Our adjustable wall bracing system stabilizes your basement walls and protects your home from further damage.

Crack Repair Our three-part crack repair program includes an epoxy injection which is then covered with a sleeve, all of which is backed up with a dry-well.  Another possible cause for vertical cracks is a settling foundation. See Below.

SINKING FOUNDATION?

If you are experiencing sticking doors or cracking in sheet rock, brick or foundation, there is a strong possibility that your home is undergoing differential settlement. This settlement can cause the structure to undergo undue stress that results in cracks appearing throughout the home’s components.
​​​​​​​


DYNAPIER Foundation Piering System 

This system combines galvanized steel and high-strength concrete making it one of the strongest foundation piers in the industry. Interlocking segments are hydraulically driven into the ground. Besides its sheer strength, the installation adds to its effectiveness.

Customer's Testimonials

I put off getting my basement water proofed for many years. If only I had reached out to B.A.M! the first time my basement flooded.
​​​​​​​
Excellent experience all around. From receiving my initial quote to coming home after the work to a dry basement that looks better than ever.

Great people, service and craftsmanship.

Thank you B.A.M.! for your great service. We just had our egress window replaced and your crew was the best. I appreciated that they came out a few days before the job was to be done to double check things and to make sure that everything went smoothly.

​​​​​​​The day of the job they showed up, friendly, professional and ready to work. When one person was working, another was getting things ready for the next step. No wasted time. I would not hesitate to use your services again

Shelia Sullivan.


I had B.A.M.! replace a basement wall, secure the foundation, and stop the water leaking into my garage - some heavy-duty work.

These guys expect the unexpected when it crops up and adapt to get the job done. They listened and responded to my concerns along the way.
Mark was a pleasure to work with and the crew workers were great people, too. Don't hesitate - these are the kind of honest people who obviously care about the quality of work they do.
