Before After
Concrete Repair in Des Moines, IA Concrete Repair in Des Moines, IA

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!

Job Stories From Carlisle, IA
Water Prevention for a Carlisle Basement

Dean was talking to his neighbors about having water in their basements and Dean wanted to prevent that in his home. As soon as he got inside, he called Midwest Basement Systems. We went out to his house and explained to him the process basement waterproofing - Dean decided this is how he wanted to protect his home.

We started by installing a WaterGuard drainage system. WaterGuard is a piping system that goes all the way around the perimeter of the basement to prevent water from flooding the space. WaterGuard sits on top of the footing, instead of alongside the footing. This is important to know because the mud can't get into the drain and clog it. WaterGuard will help to keep Dean's basement dry for many years to come!
