Wet spring soils swelled up with water pushed this basement wall inward.  As you can see the crack in the wall is opened up wide.  About a half of an inch.  The next photo will show the wall is pushed back and the crack is closing as the wall is straightened.

Mr. and Mrs. Dixon had been dealing with this problem for awhile now but decided to call Midwest Basement Systems when their son tripped over the front stoop and hurt himself. 

Mr. Dixon called and wanted somebody to come out and take a look to see if it was something that could get fixed. The System Design Specialist described to him what we could for him. He explained how we would level the concrete and how it would be done.

Travis came out and did the work for Mr. and Mrs. Dixon. They were very happy with the work that was done. They told Travis that they would recommend us for anything if the future.

Chris and Meghan S. were getting ready to put their home on the market. They were concerned that buyers would be concerned with the concrete on their driveway. Looking for a long-term solution that would get rid of any hesitation, they decided to call Midwest.

System Design Specialist Dan King went out to their home and was able to identify that the walkway was settling unevenly all the way up to the front door. There was also a broken area in the bottom of the driveway that needed to be lifted and leveled. The side slabs also had large voids underneath that needed to be closed. The crew applied PolyLevel to lift and level the settled concrete and fill the voids. Then we used NexusPro Joint Sealant to make sure all of the joints were sealed. Chris and Meghan were thrilled with the final look of the concrete!

If you live in Altoona, or if you’re within our service range, contact us today at 1-844-210-0982!

Crawl spaces are often used for storage or left unfinished because they are not visible to guests and are not a part of everyday life. However, neglecting your crawl space can cause serious problems. There are a variety of issues that can arise if you do not maintain your crawl space properly.

Signs of a crawl space issue:

  • Structural damage
  • Fungus/mold growth

Job Stories From Altoona, IA
Concrete Repair in Altoona, IA

After just buying his house, our customer in Altoona, IA wanted to get his driveway protected and prevent any problems in the future. This customer was impressed with our communication with him about the project, after being blown off by two other companies before, he knew Thrasher was the right company to help him out. 

Our team inspected the driveway and found that the joints on his driveway were left exposed and vulnerable to water and various chemicals and debris. These exposed joints can cause settling concrete and potential for other foundational problems around the home. The crew used NexusPro joint sealant to help seal the joints and protect the concrete for the future. NexusPro is a product that is the ideal solution for sealing joints in your driveway and creating lasting beauty and curb appeal for your home.

This customer couldn't have been happier with the outcome and was very impressed with our work. It was important that this project got done before the winter, so he was grateful we were able to help him out. 

PolyLevel and NexusPro Joint Sealant Repair Concrete in Altoona, IA

Homeowners in Altoona, IA were getting ready to sell their home, but needed some concrete repaired first. The concrete on the walkway and bottom of the driveway had settled. The side slabs also and large voids underneath.

Midwest was able to use PolyLevel to lift and level the settled concrete back to the original height. Then used NexusPro Joint Sealant to close up the joints and prevent water from entering again.

Uneven Concrete Repaired with PolyLevel and Nexus Pro in Altoona, IA

Jessica and Chris J.’s back patio and front sidewalk were starting to sink, with a young daughter, they wanted to make sure the concrete was safe for their family. They noticed that on the back patio water was starting to pool and the concrete was starting to sink making a noticeable gab.

We had System Design Specialist Dan King go to their home to evaluate what we could do to repair the concrete. He was able to identify that the water was collecting was because the control joints had expanded the slab openings, which allowed water to wash away the soil and cause sinking.

We were able to use two products to repair the concrete, PolyLevel and Nexus Pro. The PolyLevel was able to level and stabilize the concrete, while Nexus Pro was used to fill the control joints and cracks.
