This homeowner was dealing with a sunken garage slab, developed by voids and full of cracks. Thankfully, they turned to us once again, having experienced our exceptional service in the past and feeling comfortable entrusting us with their project.


To tackle the problem, our team used a combination of advanced techniques, including PolyLevel, NexusPro, and CompressionGuard. With our PolyLevel technology, we were able to lift and level the sunken slab, eliminating any dangerous voids. To ensure long-lasting durability, we utilized NexusPro, a superior joint sealant that seals cracks and prevents water from penetrating the slab. Finally, our installation of CompressionGuard will help to protect the slab against future settling.

Job Stories From Grinnell, IA
Driveway Repair in Grinnell, IA

This family was experiencing lots of cracking in their driveway. There were voids starting to form all over, and they were worried about maintaining their property value. They knew of Midwest's reputation and gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Tyler Paulson, came out to meet with them. Tyler found the cracking was caused for the voids under the concrete, and that was being caused by washout from rainfall over the years, along with the recent drought shrinking the soil. Tyler proposed we use our Concrete Protection System, including Polylevel to lift, level, and fill in the voids, NexusPro to fill in the cracks and joints, and Sealant to add lasting protection over the years against pitting and spalling. The family loved this solution so we sent out our installation team. There is no doubt this family has the peace of mind they were looking for!

New Water Proofing System Keeps Basement Dry in Grinnell, IA

A homeowner in Grinnell, IA was growing tried of water coming into the finished area of her basement. Looking for a wet basement solution, she decided to give Midwest Foundation Repair a call.

The crew was able to identify that the current waterproofing system was not working properly. Water was coming out and running under the carpet to the drain on the other side of the wall. We installed a new water proofing system with WaterGuard and a Triplesafe Sump Pump. The space was also encapsulated with CleanSpace to prevent any water from coming through.

PowerBraces Installed in Grinnell, IA

Ryan noticed that he had cracks in his basement walls. He called Midwest Basement Systems as soon as he saw those because he knew it could only get worse. He set up an appointment for one of our System Designer Specialists to come out and give him a free quote. Our Specialist inspected the house and noticed the walls caving in. He told Ryan that he should have PowerBraces installed which would help stop the bowing and potentially bring the wall back to it's original position. Ryan went through with the proposed solution. We had a foreman come out and install the PowerBraces.
