In the Midwest, many times the basement floor is cold.  A very fashionable way to combat the cold is to lay down Thermal Flooring.  These photos show the uncovered gray concrete standing on the stairs facing away, and the after photo shows the thermal flooring with an in-lay.

Vicinity of Wistful Vista Dr in West Des Moines
Townhouse on slab! Stain coming through on carpet in sunroom. At first we thought the previous owner had a plant/pot there but the stain came up. Put a chair over it! Now the stain is much bigger and time to look into it. I have not contacted my insurance company yet as I am wondering if this is an association problem. thanks!

The concrete steps to our side door have sunk & need raised. The concrete landing there has started to crumble on the sides in places too, so have questions on repair or replacement. Possibly want to look at raising front walkway too.

Wet basement
Vicinity of Cody Dr in West Des Moines
After the last rain storm we had this past weekend I ended up with water in my finished basement. I have a sump pit and sump pump, but it did not kick on as the water never made it to the sump pit. The only half of the floor that got wet was in the middle with being the worst. I need an estimate to as to how much it will be to fix.

The garage floor has about a 24 ft crack, with one half that has sunk about 2-3 inches down. I am looking to see what it would take to repair or to replace.

The right hand side of our driveway has sunken in near the garage entrance, creating a good inch to two inch difference.

I need to level the walk and single step at the entry to my front door, not sure if too late in year now? Ideally if we could complete it by 10/30, I understand that may be a stretch? If you could let me know, thank you
Vicinity of Raintree Dr in West Des Moines
I have a concrete slab located next to my house that is slanted towards the house. I need to have this leveled/slanting away from the house. I believe the pad is ~20ft x 10ft.

I hv 2 slabs in driveway next to house that are sloped to the house and my sidewalk leading to front of house needs leveling
Vicinity of Valley View LN in West Des Moines
Front steps and sidewalk have settled five inches. Also have a 10' x 30' driveway section that has cracked and settled. Would like to see if it is possible to have these items repaired (and cost). Thank you.
Vicinity of Elm St in West Des Moines
We moved into a new house at the end of June. It has a sump pump, but I don't think it is keeping up with the amount of rain we have received. We had water in the basement when we first moved in and again yesterday.
