    New Concrete Already Settled in Waterloo, IA

    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!

    Crawlspace Repair in Norwalk, IA

    Homeowner Louis R. in Norwalk, IA was looking to check off some home improvement projects starting with ridding the crawlspace of dampness and humidity that was affecting the rest of his home.

     

    System Design Specialist James visited the home to provide a free, same-day estimate.  We started by installing Cleanspace with a drainage mat to provide a protective barrier from the ground to the home.  Next, we blocked off exterior vents, and installed a SmartDrain with our Sedona dehumidifier.  With our system, we were able to control the moisture in the crawlspace which benefited the rest of the home.

    Marcia D. in Johnston, IA, was experiencing extreme settling in the front entrance of her house. The concrete steps had sunk, and the slab leading to the slabs had a void underneath from soil washout, a problem we often see. After recommendations from those closest to her, she quickly called us to provide a permanent concrete repair solution. 

    Our crews arrived at the home in Johnston, IA, and installed our 2-part concrete protection system. It consists of our PolyLevel lifting foam to stabilize and level the staircase and slabs and our NexusPro sealer to caulk all cracks and control joints. The two solutions ensure that the concrete remains level and sealed properly to avoid this in the future.
