Concrete Sidewalk Leveling

Concrete Sidewalk Leveling

mudjacking2020
There was a dangerous tripping hazard on the sidewalk of a home. We used a polyurethane foam to quickly and economically lift the sidewalk back to the normal, safe level with minimal disruption, and a one-day turnaround. Injection holes are strategically drilled into the concrete slab(s) that requires lifting. Polyurethane foam is then injected under the slab filling voids, and raising it to the correct level.

The guys, Mark and Travis were awesome. Worked hard, were very friendly and explained everything. They had a 2 hour ride to get here so that cut into their work time, which wasn’t their fault, so they were here longer than expected, but they got it done well. Would have them here again in a heartbeat- though I hope that won’t be necessary 😊.

Pleased with the work. One disappointment was that they used my hose for the concrete and my broom for cleanup. They should have been more respectful of our property.

Couldn't have been better. They had an opening and were able to come 3 days earlier than originally scheduled. Rob & Justin were very professional and obviously knew exactly what they were doing. When I pointed out a small section on a side of the house that was not included on the quote, they made a quick call and just got permission to take care of it. I made it clear I was willing to pay for it...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Old stone foundation of my house in back was losing mortar and stones becoming loose. Not a structural problem quite yet. Midstate quoted to come in, dig down several inches, remove all loose material, patch and fix everything in place, then skim coat the whole surface.

sump pump is quiet and works well. Water still in basement, basement still damp and drainage issue outside is worse than when started. The sump pump drained onto the porch step and created mudd to accumulate onto the steps. We asked for the sump pump to be relocated, it was moved to another location that created a larger issue. See pictures below. Then we were quoted another price of $1,500 to fix...

I can't say enough about how prompt, efficient and professional Eric, Adam and all of the team from Midstate Basement Authorities have been. When our basement flooded, I called Midstate and Eric and Adam were here the next day. I had a proposal in 2 days and they were here to do the work within a week of my signing the proposal. Following the installation of the basement system and sump, I discove...

In response to my initial email inquiry, Eric, the owner, came to the house and we discussed all of the issues and how they would deal with them. He took measurements and pictures and was very professional, polite and encouraging. Within a few days he emailed me a very precise and detailed proposal outlining all three jobs and the estimated cost. I immediately accepted. Adam came to the house and ...
