Concrete Leveling and Repair in Des Moines, IA

The concrete at this home had settled and there was one crack and a tripping hazard. The owner does not want to have to worry about the mailman/woman or anyone else walking up to her front door and tripping over the crack in her sidewalk. She stated, "I know it's there and I trip over it. I don't want someone walking up to my door and getting hurt because of my sidewalk." 

 

We used Polylevel to raise the sidewalk and make it an even walking surface. We then sealed the cracks and control joints with NexusPro to further protect the concrete. 

Damaged Concrete Repair

The homeowner indicated that the sidewalk has not been usable for some time and his wife had been wanting it fixed. On top of that, they didn't like the aesthetics of the damaged concrete. We fixed it by filling the voids under the concrete with Polylevel foam. We also filled the cracks and joints with NexusPro to make sure that the soil under the slab wound’t erode again and cause the concrete to sink

 

Goodbye Wet Basement!

This customer wanted to keep his basement dry and get rid of his ugly water-stained walls. During our inspection of the basement, we also found some efflorescence forming. To fix these problems, we installed a WaterGuard, CleanSpace, a TripleSafe sump pump, and a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. 

Peace of Mind Restored in Bussey, IA

This homeowner has been worrying about his foundation walls at least once a day for the last 50 years. His basement walls are cracking and bowing in multiple places due to the outside soil expanding. Our crew installed PowerBraces to stabilize the wall and begin to correct them back to their original position. 

Sagging and Bouncing Floors Fixed

When our team walked into this home through the front door, there was an obvious bounce in the floor. Upon investigation, the floor was being held up by telephone poles that were cut to fit but they were not strong enough to hold keep holding the home up. Also, the floor was not level. The homeowner was concerned about the bounce and the ability of the floor to withstand weight since it was not supported very well. We fixed the problem by adding SmartJacks to the crawlspace to hold up the floor. There are 2 supplemental beams that run the length of the house. We added 5 Smartjacks to the front of the home and 5 more SmartJacks to the back of the home. We also added a supplemental beam in-between the existing cinderblock supports to finish supporting the house/floor from sagging and bouncing.
