1948 – It All Began with Gutters

In 1948, Claude Tomlinson and his father founded a gutter business in Iowa City. For almost 40 years, they provided the residents of Iowa City with top-notch gutter services that protected their homes and businesses from rain.

1980s – Beyond Gutters

Tom and Sue Cannon purchased the gutter company from Claude Tomlinson in 1985. Throughout the remainder of the decade, they added a Cedar Rapids branch to the business and began their basement waterproofing division.

1990s – Rapid Expansion

Tomlinson Cannon expanded quickly in the 1990s through adding locations and service divisions, including basement wall anchoring, concrete sawing and core drilling, and mudjacking.

2000s – Steady Growth

Today, Tomlinson Cannon continues its growth in all divisions, and employs over 35 associates. We’ve now expanded to Waterloo and the Quad Cities, and have the ability to work all along the I-380 Corridor.

Basement Wall Straightening

Do you have bowing or buckling walls in your basement? Tomlinson Cannon of Iowa City has the solution to your problem, and we won’t have to rebuild the entire wall. Let us use the revolutionary Grip-Tite basement wall anchoring system to secure your basement walls and restore the structural integrity to your home or business.

The Grip-Tite system was developed by engineers and is approved by the building officials of the International Code Council, and we’re proud to be the only installers in Eastern Iowa. Check out the Grip-Tite website to learn more.

Quick, Clean Installation

Securing your walls with the Grip-Tite system is a relatively speedy process that can usually be completed in a single day. It requires minimal drilling through your basement walls and doesn’t destroy your yard.

Wall Stability with Minimal Fuss

Our process inserts one or more ¾” steel rods through the basement wall and secures those rods in anchors buried beneath your yard. The anchors prevent any further movement of your wall, while tightening the bearing plate (your professional grade torque wrench is supplied) returns a leaning or bowed wall to its proper position.

Complete Gutter-to-Basement Analysis

Bowed or cracked basement walls are often caused by drainage problems that allow water to saturate the soil against your foundation. Our team can provide a complete analysis of your gutters and give you a free quote.

Mudjacking

You can save quite a bit of money when you have Tomlinson Cannon use its mudjacking technique to repair your uneven concrete driveway, sidewalk, or other surface. It’s much less expensive than laying new concrete, and it takes far less time than putting in a new patio, driveway, or basement floor.

Contact our offices today to get a free quote on your mudjacking job. Our services are available throughout Eastern Iowa, from Iowa City all along the I-380 Corridor to Waterloo.

Bring Concrete Back to Level

Too often, concrete is poured on soil that hasn’t fully settled. When that soil settles, the concrete becomes uneven. Our mudjacking technique injects concrete grout beneath the surface and makes your concrete surface even again.

Fast Repairs for Sinking Concrete

  • We drill a minimal number of holes
  • Inject concrete grout into the holes to fill the void beneath the slab
  • Patch the holes
  • Most jobs are ready for regular use within 24 hours

Basement Waterproofing

The solution to your wet basement is just a phone call away. Contact Tomlinson Cannon for a free quote from Eastern Iowa’s basement waterproofing experts. Let our professional team take a look at your basement water problem and recommend a solution designed with your particular situation in mind.

Basement Drain Tile Waterproofing

If hydrostatic pressure and saturated soil is the cause of your wet basement, our Basement Drain Tile Waterproofing technique installs drainage tiles that direct water into a sump pump and out of your home.

Our procedure always includes protecting your possessions, making sure our work is as minimally intrusive as possible, and cleaning up when the job is done.

Crack Injection Procedure

If cracks are the cause of your basement water problems, you can rely on us to fill them with a polyurethane chemical grout called MountainGrout. Sealing cracks prevents them from becoming larger and threatening your home’s structure.

The procedure for crack injection is one of the quickest, easiest solutions to water problems.

Water X-Tract System

If water seeps in where the basement floor and walls meet, our Water X-Tract System can direct that water into a sump pump and away from your living and storage areas.

The Water X-Tract System uses hollow vinyl baseboards and small holes in your foundation as barriers and channels to guide the water. Pro-Seal Once adhesive keeps it all sealed in place.

This method requires no digging, no trenching, no jackhammers, and no hauling buckets of mud out of your home. Call us today to see if it’s right for you.

Thorough Drainage Analysis

Basement water problems are frequently caused by gutter and drainage problems that send water towards your basement instead of out into your yard. Let us provide a complete analysis and give you a free quote.
