Canadian Concrete Leveling Case Studies: Tripping Hazards Leave Homeowner Worried in Brampton, Ontario
Water always finds the path of least resistance, so making sure it has an easy way to flow is essential.
A customer in Brampton, Ontario, was tired of dealing with two tripping hazards. One was on her driveway, and the other was her front step. These were two areas of high foot traffic, and she was concerned about guests tripping. She was tired of seeing water always pool on her driveway too, so she reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling.
She was unfamiliar with our solutions, so Project Manager Kyle O’Brien showed her how we could repair her sinking concrete. She was excited to learn she could fix the hazards without removing any concrete, so she set up a date for the repair.
Foreman Bill McKeown started the installation by drilling dime-sized holes throughout the concrete. These holes are used for injection ports. Bill injected our high-density polyurethane, PolyLevel®, which expands beneath the concrete and lifts the slabs. Once the tripping hazards were taken care of, Bill patched the holes with fresh concrete.
The customer is happy she doesn’t have to worry about anyone tripping anymore. She has peace of mind, and water finally flows off the driveway.
