Kyle kept tripping on his walkway and driveway. Plus running a snowplow over settled concrete was the worst. So he contacted Midwest and liked our solution. Todd King, our System Design Specialist, went out to Kyle's home to see how we could help.
A few of Kyle's slabs had a lot of voids underneath the concrete, which is what made them sink. His sidewalk was also experiencing settled slabs due to the soil around it.
To fix this, we used our Concrete Protection System 3. This involves lifting the areas that had fallen with PolyLevel, sealing all the joints and cracks with NexusPro, and then we applied SealantPro to the entire area to prolong the concrete's life and keep water and chemicals from penetrating the concrete.
Kyle was so happy with the final result and best of all, no more tripping hazards!
These homeowners could not use their basement due to the walls caving in and water consistently flooding their home. Concerned, they called our team. Our team fixed this by creating a water-tight seal around the basement walls and installing power braces to the walls to repair the previous damage. The homeowners are thrilled that they can now use their basement without issues. The image above demonstrates the caving walls and water damage in the basement before we started to solve this issue. The after photo shows our power braces that give the walls the structural integrity they were missing, in addition to the waterproof barrier that was installed to prevent further water from causing damage.
This homeowner was getting water into his basement again and didn't want it to ruin his furniture or storage area. He had waterproofing done before, but wanted his remaining areas of his basement waterproofed. He called Midwest and System Design Specialist, Elliot Christians, came out to meet with them. After an inspection, Elliot proposed we use a full height of CleanSpace and WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement. CleanSpace is used as a barrier between the wall and basement. It is a very sturdy tarp like material that is very hard to tear. If water comes through the walls through cracks or joints, it will trickle down the CleanSpace and into the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is our drainage system that will then flow the water into the sump pump and out of the home at a safe distance. Great thing about interior waterproofing is when any water finds its way in, it redirects it back out of the home, so you can still have a fully finished basement!

These homeowners were getting water into their basement and didn't want it to ruin the furniture or storage. They had waterproofing done a couple of years ago and wanted to finish waterproofing the rest of their basement. They called Midwest because they knew of our great reputation and wanted us to finish this project. System Design Specialist, Elliott Christians, came out to meet with them. After the inspection, Elliot proposed we do a full height of CleanSpace and WaterGuard around the perimeter. CleanSpace is our waterproof encapsulation product that allows a barrier between the wall and basement. If water finds its way in, it trickles down the tarp like material and into the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is our drainage system that flows the water into the sump pump and out of the house at a safe distance. The homeowner was happy with this idea and we sent out our installation team. He was happy with our previous work and was excited to get the rest of this work done! There is no doubt this homeowner does not have to worry about water in his basement anymore.
