Unlevel Sidewalk Fixed in West Des Moines, IA

An un-level sidewalk is a common problem, but one that Midwest Foundation Repair can quickly fix. Sidewalks endure significant wear and tear, and when the soil supporting a cement slab weakens, cracks and sinking can occur. There are several possible causes for this issue, such as erosion from rainwater, decaying tree roots, poor yard drainage, or improperly compacted dirt fill underneath the slab. Uneven sidewalk slabs pose a tripping hazard for your family, guests, and neighbors. At Midwest Foundation Repair, we have the solution. We employ our advanced PolyLevel® system to lift, level, and stabilize your sidewalk. Additionally, for smaller cracks, we utilize NexusPro to fill and seal cracks and control joints after the sidewalk slabs have been expertly lifted and leveled with PolyLevel. Trust us to restore the safety and aesthetics of your outdoor space.

Concrete Step Repair in Des Moines, IA

Recently, we had the pleasure of assisting Jan J. with her sunken concrete steps. Utilizing our innovative technique called PolyLeveling, we were able to restore her steps to their original level and stability. With this cutting-edge solution, we injected PolyLevel polyurethane foam beneath the sunken concrete through tiny ports, no larger than a penny. This unique foam initially flows like water, ensuring it fills even the tiniest cracks and crevices in the soil. As the foam expands and hardens, it lifts the slab and compresses the surrounding soils, providing a long-lasting and durable solution. Thanks to the rapid curing time of PolyLevel, Jan was able to use her steps on the same day. At Midwest, we are committed to delivering high-quality foundation repair services that exceed our customers' expectations.

One of the primary reasons to ensure your foundation is waterproof it to prevent mold growth in your home.
