Marcia D. in Johnston, IA, was experiencing extreme settling in the front entrance of her house. The concrete steps had sunk, and the slab leading to the slabs had a void underneath from soil washout, a problem we often see. After recommendations from those closest to her, she quickly called us to provide a permanent concrete repair solution. 

Our crews arrived at the home in Johnston, IA, and installed our 2-part concrete protection system. It consists of our PolyLevel lifting foam to stabilize and level the staircase and slabs and our NexusPro sealer to caulk all cracks and control joints. The two solutions ensure that the concrete remains level and sealed properly to avoid this in the future.

Job Stories From Johnston, IA
Concrete Repair in Johnston, IA

Rachelle L. In Johnston, IA was concerned about the state of her driveway, sidewalk and steps. The slabs were sinking, creating lots of trip hazards. She also knew all too well the feeling of running into concrete ledges while trying to shovel snow and wasn’t looking forward to another year of that. Rachelle had heard that Midwest Foundation Repair did good work, and so we got the call.


Using PolyLevel polyurethane foam injection, we filled the voids beneath her concrete slabs to make them level again. To help protect the concrete from sinking again and to enhance it’s appearance, we sealed any cracks and joints with NexusPro.


After the project was complete, Rachelle had this to say about her experience, “The crew did and excellent job. My neighbors have already commented on how nice it looks. I'm very glad I did the project.” She was also glad that she could repair her concrete instead of the more expensive option of replacing it.

Concrete leveling in Johnston, IA

Jeremy was working in the yard this past weekend and noticed his driveway has been sinking. He wanted to get it fixed because he had a lot of kids walking past his house and he didn't want them to trip and fall. He called us that day and scheduled an appointment to have one of our experts come out and give him a free quote. The expert told him that he would need to get his driveway and sidewalk fixed. 

The process was to fix the sunken conrete with Polylevel. Polylevel is the process that we use to fix the sunken concrete. Polylevel takes the original concept of mudjacking and combines it with modern technology. Instead of using mud and concrete, we use high-density polymers to raise slabs back to desired level. 

We did the work for Jeremy when is was nice outside and he was very happy with the results. He told the crew that he would recommend that process to anybody else.
