This homeowner had a block foundation wall that was bowing in and he was concerned that the wall was going to collapse. After getting a few estimates, he knew that he needed our help and expertise to fix his bowing wall.
We sent System Design Specialist Mike Portel to inspect the bowing wall and determine what was causing this. Mike found that the soil on the outside of the block wall foundation, causing the wall foundation to fall inwards. He also noticed that there were cracks in the wall that appeared to have grown over time. Mike and the team installed PowerBraces so that the homeowner could move his foundation walls back to their position over time.
The homeowner was very happy with the quality of work and with the professionalism of the group. Check out his new PowerBrace System.

Michelle recently worked with another company and replaced the concrete on her driveway and front entrance walkway. And to get it fixed, she called Midwest. We were able to get out on site, inspect her concrete, and then start leveling. We lifted the area and stabilized the rest of the walkway with PolyLevel. And then, we sealed all cracks and joints with NexusPro.
The result made it look good as new. And the homeowners were very pleased we had a solution to their frustrating problem!
This homeowner had recently finished their basement to get it ready to put on the market. During the spring, when the ground melted, they noticed water coming in from behind the stairs, ruining the drywall. So they called Midwest to come out and inspect. Mike Portal was the one to perform the inspection. He found that the water was coming in behind the finished walls through the cold and mortar joints on the block wall. This happened due to hydrostatic pressure from water filling up around the foundation.
To fix this issue, we installed WaterGuard and CleanSpace along the wall where the water was coming in. This will help direct and drain the water away from the home.
The homeowner now feels confident in our solution and is happy they won't have to deal with water ruining any more drywall in their home.
