Craig W. wanted to repair and protect his driveway before the sinking and cracking he was noticing got worse. To do this, we used a 3-part concrete protection solution that started with lifting and leveling his sinking slabs. Next we sealed the joints between the slabs to prevent water from seeping beneath the slabs where it could erode away the supporting soil. Next, we applied a concrete sealant over the driveway to protect it from the normal wear and tear that chips away at concrete and shortens its lifespan. We also installed an expansion joint to relieve pressure between the street and the driveway slabs to prevent future cracking. Craig was very happy with the results, and felt good knowing that his driveway would be protected in the years ahead.

Matthew B. reached out to Midwest because he noticed his walkway had big cracks that would be a potential tripping hazard for his children. He chose Midwest because he knew we were a reliable company and wanted to get the work done quickly.

We sent System Design Specialist Tyler Paulson out to inspect. We ended up lifting and leveling the concrete with our Polylevel system. The Polylevel concrete leveling system was the perfect option for this job because it's waterproof, cures quickly, and will efficiently fill cracks and crevices in the soil. After leveling, we then sealed up the controlled joints with our Nexus Pro to prevent any water and rocks getting into the joints. Matthew was so happy with our work and timeliness that he started thinking of other areas we can come back out and help fix.

Job Stories From Grimes, IA
Concrete Repair in Urbandale, IA

This homeowner living in Urbandale, IA had some places on her walkway leading up to her home that were causing some concerns of a tripping hazard for her. She was wanting to get this problem fixed before it got any worse and became a bigger issue. After seeing our trucks in the area, she decided to give Thrasher a call and see how we could help.

After the inspection, the crew determined the problem on the walkway but knew there could be a bigger problem in the future. The joints on her driveway were not sealed leaving her concrete vulnerable and exposed to future damages. The team was able to fix her walkway using PolyLevel foam to fill the void under the concrete and raise it back level getting rid of the tripping hazard. We then used NexusPro joint sealant to seal the joints in the driveway preventing any other concrete from settling in the future. 

This customer was appreciative of all the information we were able to communicate with her and was glad she no longer has to worry about her concrete in the future!  

Concrete Repair in Grimes, IA

This homeowner had a few trip hazards and his front walkway was starting to settle. He knew of Thrasher, because we had done work at his daughters house and thought the work was great. He gave us a call and System Design Specialist, Todd King, came out to see him. Todd found there were cracks in the wingwalls, broken control joints and a few of the entryway slabs had settled, creating trip hazards. Todd proposed we lift the area with our PolyLevel to level the slabs out and seal the joints with NexusPro. He also proposed putting in ac compression guard in the driveway to take pressure off and prevent street creep. The homeowner was pleased with this idea, so we sent out our installation team. This homeowner was very happy with the work, and there is no doubt they no longer need to worry about trip hazards. 

Concrete Repair in Grimes, IA

Craig W. In Grimes, Iowa noticed that the concrete slabs in his driveway were slowly but surely sinking, creating cracks and trip hazards where the joints were no longer flush. He knew that the problem would only get worse if something wasn’t done about it, and that could mean even more expense if things got so bad that replacement was the only option left. That’s when he called Midwest Foundation Repair.


We could see right away that voids beneath the concrete slabs were causing them to sink, and our inspection revealed that pressure was being exerted on the driveway slabs from a phenomenon known as ‘street creep’. Concrete and other materials expand in the heat, and contract in the cold. Street creep occurs when the street in front of a house expands and there is no way to relieve the pressure this exerts on the driveway slabs that are also expanding. Over time, this pressure becomes too much for the driveway slabs to absorb and they crack. 


To repair and protect Craig’s home, we needed a 3 step approach - level the concrete, protect it from sinking in the future and protect the driveway from street creep. First, we injected Polylevel polyurethane foam into the voids beneath the driveway slabs to lift and level them. Next, we cut into the driveway to install a compression joint that would provide the necessary ‘wiggle room’ between the driveway and the street. We then sealed all of the concrete joints to prevent water from flowing beneath the slabs where it could wash away supporting soil. Lastly, we applied a sealant over the surface of the concrete to protect it from the normal wear and tear that gradually chips and flakes away concrete, increasing the lifetime of the driveway. We also filled a void beneath Craig’s garage before it could become an issue.


In the end, Craig was thrilled with the results, and was happy to know that we had not only solved todays problems, but also helped prevent future problems.

With the most recent rainfall (11/4 & 5) we noticed water leaking in our unfinished basement in two spots, and it seems to be stemming from the window wells, in the same spots on each side - our house was built June 2021. We have blanket insulation on the walls, so I am unable to determine how far the leak goes, but does not seem to be wet near the top by the joists. Thank you!
