A-1 Concrete Leveling
Ankeny, IA 50021
No coupons available
I knew I needed to repair the landing that had sunk about 5 inches at the bottom of my front steps, however I knew hiring a contractor to pour cement was not in my budget. I was going thru the Val-Pak and found a coupon for A-1 Concrete Leveling. I put it off until mid Summer when I decided to give the number on the coupon a call. I spoke with Dan and he told me he'd come to my home and take a look and give me an estimate. He came out that day and gave me a call at work. He gave me the estimate, I couldn't believe how affordable it was! I set up the appointment! He was very professional and said it would be about 2-3 weeks out due to the busy time of the year. I set up a date and was glad I had taken the first step. Dan called the day before and told me they would be out between 8 and 8:15am. The truck arrived at 8:12am! The workers took time, got down on the ground behind my hollow steps and looked and explained to me that they couldn't gaurentee that it would work but they would carefully give it a try. I watched while they worked to raise the sunken landing. They took time and went slow and finally the cement started coming up and up and pretty soon it was level!!!! They filled the 3 holes, cleaned everything up very well, I wrote the check and John, explained to me that I should check it for a week or two. He told me if it starts to sink they would come back out at no charge and do it all over since the product they used would have set up so the hollow steps now would have something to push off of. I watched and he was correct, the east side had sunk about 1/2 inch or so. I called and spoke to Dan. Dan said they would be out in a week. They were out in 3 days!!! I got home from work and noticed right away.....LEVEL again! It's been a couple of weeks and its perfect!! If you are reading this review.............I highly recommend you give Dan a call! I am very happy knowing how Safe my landing is and how much it improved the curb appeal of my home. Thanks again Dan and crew! Love it!

I am so impressed with how this turned out! I got a letter from the city saying I had to fix my sidewalk and I found A1 Concrete Leveling and asked for a bid. Dan came out that week and delivered his proposal to my door. I was so happy to see his pricing! I was braced for hundreds of dollars and his bid was a breath of fresh air. Dan gave us a service date and his guys were here on that day and had the work done within a few hours. It looks awesome!
Thank you for saving my sidewalk and my wallet! I will recommend your service to anyone that has a concrete problem!

When you bid a job, you don't ask for more money in the middle of it....Your pavement will raise for a few months then resettle. You might actually fix the targeted spot but your pavement may crack,or break in another place causing another high spot or trip hazzard from stress in which ours did. Then your out of luck . If you can fix it correct, replace the concrete, you'll be glad you did!

Owner Dan does not return phone calls if you complain. He sent two employees to level my driveway and sidewalk. The job was seriously underbid and the employees were complaining about all the work they had to do. They didn't do the driveway because the employee said he was told to level in a way by the owner that would create more trip spots in the joints. The estimate for the sidewalk was $100 and said two holes needed drilled. They drilled 6 or more holes and cut the sidewalk. In leveling this one section they created another trip spot a few sections of sidewalk down that had a prexisting stress fracture. This was because they didn't level each side of the fracture. I called they owner and wanted to discuss the work and renegotiate the driveway since he seriously underbid it. The owner did receive my message because he and they employee who did the work showed up at my house the next morning. He obviously felt the trip spot his employee created by leveling only one side of the cracked sidewalk didn't need to be fixed. He left without talking to me at all. In fact, I went outside to talk to them and he drove away. He never called back.
I called another leveling company to get a quote to correct their shabby work and fix my driveway properly. A1's bid to do my drive way consisted of 4 holes and cost $225. The second company said I would need 30 holes and was going to cost $1,500. A1 Concrete Leveling seems to be uneducated as to how to give a bid and what exactly needs to be done to level a driveway. I would seriously recommend you look elsewhere for quality concrete leveling service.
