Meet Our Bambasement! Team

Mark strives for the 3 R’s RIGHTS, RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY of his company and customers.

Mark Williams Owner

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.

Jeremy started as a laborer in the summers when was 13 years old and eventually worked his way up to journeyman and foreman. He is known as a general manager, problem solver, communicator and advocate for B.A.M customer service and sales. He says “I want to show clients that honesty and integrity are not a thing of the past. A person’s word still means something to B.A.M and we will stand behind ours.”

Jeremy R. General Manager

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,

She brings her organizational skills and leadership abilities to the B.A.M! team.
