This homeowner recently decided to do something about the sunken concrete driveway at their home. To address this issue, we used PolyLevel polyurethane foam which is injected beneath the concrete slabs through small ports, filling cracks and crevices in the soil. As it expands and hardens, it lifts the concrete slabs, restoring them to their proper position while simultaneously compressing the surrounding soil. One advantage of PolyLevel is how fast it works, you can resume normal use of your concrete just 15 minutes after the process is completed.
This homeowner was tired of the "speed bump" due to concrete settling as he entered and left his garage. He did not want to replace the drive and also has no plans of moving. He knew roughly what it would take to replace his driveway fully, and knew it would be more affordable to fix. He knew of Thrasher reputation and gave us a call. James Denning, System Design Specialist, came out to meet with him. James saw how settled the driveway was and the homeowner joked that he would either need to get his driveway fixed or buy a Jeep! James helped this homeowner by proposing we use our PolyLevel to lift the sections of the driveway that have sunk, and NexusPro to seal the joints. We also installed a compression guard to provide a true buffer between the street and his home. The homeowner was thrilled with the difference in height, saying it was much easier to get in and out of his home. Check out the before and after photos attached!
For this couple, realizing the low-quality sump pump they had recently paid for was no longer working was extremely stressful. This time around, they called Midwest.
We were able to remove the old pump and backup system and install a new pump with a backup pump to ensure they wouldn't regret choosing Midwest for their waterproofing needs.

This homeowner was tired of the "speed bump" from going into and out of his garage. He had a rough idea of what it would be to replace his full driveway, and he knew he did not want that. He heard of Thrasher and our reputation, and gave us a call. James Denning, System Design Specialist came out to meet with him. As James was surveying the area, the homeowner joked saying "I either have to get the driveway fixed or buy a Jeep!" The concrete was settling due to some washout of the soil under the slab. James talked with the homeowner assuring him we could get this fixed. We used PolyLevel to lift and level the driveway up to the garage, and NexusPro to seal the area. We also installed a compression guard to provide a true buffer between the street and his home. The homeowner loved this solution and noticed the difference of ease getting into his garage right away. We knew he has the peace of mind he needs for his home.
This homeowner had numerous areas around his driveway that were causing trip hazards. He was worried about the safety of his family coming to visit, and did not want them to fall and hurt themselves. He knew of Thrasher reputation and wanted a professional opinion, so he gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Elliott Christians, came out to meet with him. Elliott did his inspection and found the soil under the slab had washed away, which was causing the concrete to settle. Elliott came back to the homeowner with these findings and a solution. They talked it through and decided we would install Polylevel under the slab to lift, level, and stabilize the concrete and NexusPro to seal the joints. Both of these products are waterproof, so they will help prevent any more washout of soil. The homeowner loved this solution and we sent out our installation team. He is so happy he does not have to worry about anyone falling and getting hurt and happy to have the peace of mind he needed.
These house flippers needed a small concrete project done quickly. After looking at companies in the area, they came across Midwest and asked if we could complete this project with a week turnaround so that they could sell the house.
We sent System Design Specialist Elliot Christians to inspect the concrete problem and schedule a solution quickly. Elliot noticed that the concrete next to the foundation was settling, and that water was seeping into the soil under the concrete, then seeping into the basement. After seeing this, Elliot called a team to quickly solve this problem. Our team spent a long day to get this project installed by utilized PolyLevel Concrete Leveling and NexusPro Cracked Concrete Repair to lift and seal the concrete from any water.
The house flippers were very happy with the installation and with how quickly our team was able to solve their problem.
The concrete settled and created a tripping hazard on the sidewalk. They did not want anyone to get hurt. The sidewalk concrete slabs settled about 3 inches making it uneven and an obvious tripping hazard.
They chose us because of our reputation and read reviews on how good we were. We used Polylevel foam to level out the slabs and we used NexusPro joint sealant to caulk the joints so no water gets in underneath the slab. This project stands out because the concrete settled pretty severely. It was to the point where I am not sure any other company could have pulled it off as great as we did.
The customer loved the improved sidewalk. No more tripping hazard!
Homeowners noticed water coming into their basement when all the rain came early May. They wanted to get it fixed immediately because they had valuables in their basement that they did not want to get wet. They called Midwest Basement Systems and wanted to have an expert come out and take a look at the problem. Nick went out to the house and described the problem to them. They signed the contract right away and had Christiam and his crew come out and fix the problem.
Christiam and his crew were installing WaterGuard, IceGuard, and a sump pump. The pictures in this album are pictures of them getting ready to install all of the items.
Beverly was putting Christmas decorations away and noticed that there was a spot of water on her carpet. She called in and asked what the process would be to help her. We sent out one of our expert design specialists to look at what was going on. Our expert, Kyle told her that she was going to need some Waterguard put in and Iceguard to protect it in the future. Beverly agreed to all of this and set up a day that our foreman could come out and install all of this for her.
Our foreman and his crew showed up on time and did the work like Beverly was told. Beverly was very impressed with the crew and was happy that her basement would be permanently fixed with our transferable warranty. She called in and talked very highly of our company and told us that she would tell everybody about us.
