Leveling Driveway and Sinking Porch, Hamilton, Ontario
Hamilton, Ontario, has a lot of older homes where concrete has settled. In many circumstances, the concrete that tends to sink/shift first is the driveway, walkways, then the porch. This house had all three going for it, and the homeowners wanted to fix it before it became a severe hazard when navigating in and out of the home—starting with the home's driveway. The driveway had shifted from soil settlement, causing it to sink at specific points, revealing tripping hazards. Moving on to the front porch. The porch started following the same pattern as the driveway and started falling to expose the foundation and make the step into the home much larger. Since the owners were elderly, any obstacle stopping them from getting in and out of the house made it ten times more difficult for them to get around.
They needed to fix this as soon as possible, so worry about hurting themselves is left at bay. A friend recommended a company that could level the concrete within the same day without ripping up the existing concrete; that company was Canadian Concrete Leveling. Our Project Manager, Matt Ruskin, set the homeowners at ease with a detailed quote and honest pricing. Later that week, our Installation Specialist, Bill McKeown, came to the home to inject the concrete slabs with our polyurethane. Once the injections were made, the concrete immediately lifted back to its original position. The homeowners were amazed by the same-day process and couldn't thank Bill and Matt enough for their treatment.
