Mike Portel from Midwest Foundation Repair

Mike brings years of sales experience from positions such as Sales Specialist at Sunpro Solar, ten years as a Sales Director at Verizon, and an additional five years in the hospitality industry, giving him all the tools to excel in his sales position here at Midwest. Born and raised in Des Moines, IA, Mike spends his time outside of work with his family of three children. They love to travel, enjoy time outdoors, and do anything sports-related!

At Midwest, we work every day to deliver a wow experience and challenge the status quo. One way we do that is by walking alongside the best in the industry. In Mike’s words, "I chose to work at Midwest because their reputation stood out to me as a major differentiator compared to others in this industry". We're thrilled to have him as part of the Midwest team as we work to redefine our industry.

    This home had a large driveway with deep cracks. The homeowner wanted to extend the life of the concrete for as long as possible and avoid having to replace it at all costs. Concerned with people tripping, they knew they had to get it fixed. They worked with Midwest in the past, so they knew how timely and thorough we were on our diagnosis. We sent Mike Portel, System Design Specialist, to inspect the concrete and develop a proposal.

    Upon inspection, he confirmed several concrete slabs across the driveway and sidewalk had settled anywhere from 1/2" to 1 1/2". To fix the issue, we used PolyLevel; a foam injected in pea-size holes that fill in voids underneath the surface of the concrete and lifts the current slab to its original position. To fix cracks and joints, we then used NexusPro. 

    The homeowners were extremely satisfied and surprised with how quick we got it all done!
