PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Cedar home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

Waterproofing in Durant, IA

Ben and Amanda S. of Durant needed to waterproof their basement to stop water from flooding. The unfinished basement doubles as a laundry room, and the homeowners found the water invasion inconvenient, not to mention a hazard for creating mold. They called design specialist Joe Sarb for a free estimate and a solution to their basement waterproofing problem.

Among the products installed in the Durant basement were the the TripleSafe sump pump and IceGuard. The TripleSafe sump pump is a top-of-the-line sump pump that has dual pumping action. The first pump runs when there's a little bit to an average amount of water to pump out. The second pump runs when there is a lot of water to pump out, and it runs in conjunction with the first pump. It has a backup battery, and it also includes an alarm for when water levels are high in the pump. IceGuard is a product that is placed on the discharge lines, so that water can still be pumped out of the basement and away from the foundation even in cold conditions where the pipe may freeze. The homeowners are very pleased with their now-dry basement.
