Before joining Midwest Foundation Repair, Michael worked as a farmhand and in sales. Originally from Ames, IA, Michael still lives there. He has a wonderful girlfriend and enjoys hunting and farming in his spare time. He is also a fan of Iowa State college football.
At Midwest, we work every day to deliver a wow experience and challenge the status quo. One way we do that is by walking along with the best in the industry. In Michael’s words, “I chose to work here because of the company culture and the ability to gain sales experience.” We're thrilled to have Michael as part of the Midwest team as we work to redefine our industry.
Robert B. started to notice that the floors in the crawl space were sagging, and that doors and windows were not closing properly. Not wanting the problem to get worse, he decided to seek out a solution right away. After having Midwest come out to do other work, he felt comfortable in having us come back out.
We sent Service Technician Michael Holtz out to Robert’s home. Robert had already braced the crawl space but was ready to finish the job. The crew installed SmartJacks to support the crawl space and the sagging floors. Then also insulated the crawl space with SilverGlo helping the space become energy efficient. Robert was happy that we were able to create a permanent solution.
Linda W. noticed that the concrete slabs in the basement of her Des Moines, IA home were cracking. She had Midwest come out and repair her driveway and felt comfortable with having us return to fix her basement. Service Technician Michael Holtzbauer was able to identify that the basement slab had a giant void under it and it was causing the slab to settle at different rates and crack. The crew used PolyLevel to fill the void and level out the slab. Then used NexusPro Joint Sealant to close the cracks. Linda was super excited to see that the slab was level and no longer cracking!
Homeowner Ralph H. in Boone, IA noticed that there were cracks appearing in his foundation. Fearing that there was a lot of pressure on his foundation walls from a previous leak, he wanted to have a peace of mind in knowing his walls were stable. Looking for a company with a good reputation for fixing foundation, he decided to give Midwest a call.
Service Technician Michael Holtzbauer went out to Ralph’s home. After inspecting the walls, he was able to identify that the basement wall was in stage one wall failure with deflection and diagonal cracking on the poured foundation. The crew installed PowerBraces around the full perimeter of the basement to support the whole wall. Ralph was very pleased with the outcome of the project and glad to know that is home is properly supported.
