Crawl spaces left unattended can slowly deteriorate.  Mold growth, bug and spider infestation, moisture, and odors develop and increase over time. 

Cleaning up and fully encapulating the crawl space is the safest and healthiest way to not only improve the space itself, but to improve the air quality in the rooms and floors above.

The driveway was cracking so bad they thought they surely had to replace it all. Our crew lifted and leveled all broken concrete even an area that a roofing truck damaged with their level truck levers. We also found what was causing the settlement problem and buried the downspouts away from the concrete stopping the soil from being washed out.

Job Stories From Runnells, IA
CrawlSpace repair in Runnells, IA

The customer wanted to maintain property value and keep the house up to code with floor support. They had a 30 ft x 30 ft crawlspace with only two supports underneath the section of the house. This caused floors to dip and sag. We fixed the problem by adding 12 smart jacks and 3 supplemental beams to help spread out the weight of the house

The customer was interested to see it done and to see the new and upgraded support his house was going to have. This project stands out to me because it was a customer that didn't doubt our solution and understood why he needed it.

Concrete repair over replace in Runnells, IA

The homeowners thought their driveway was unrepairable. When they had some roofers out, their truck cracked a lot of their driveway. This wasn't necessarily caused by the roofing truck but the water washing out dirt from underneath the concrete. Our system design specialist went out to see what we could do. He determined that The homeowners did not need to replace their concrete and that we could get it all lifted, leveled, and repaired. 

After making the repairs to the concrete, We could an exposed downspout that was allowing water near the concrete and causing the washout. We buried the downspout to prevent any future soil washout from the repaired concrete.

Porch settlement in Runnells, IA

The homeowner was worried that the wrap-around porch was going to have to be rebuilt because it seemed to be falling apart. They had Midwest come check out the problem. We found that the porch was settling due to poor footings. We fixed this for them by installing piers under the columns to stabilize the settling porch. The homeowner was so glad they did not have to rebuild the entire deck.
