A customer in Cumberland Beach, Ontario, was concerned about their backyard. As custom home builders, they take extreme pride in the workmanship and the look of their home. Unfortunately, their beautiful flagstone patio had gone from backyard oasis to cracked and sloped water collector. The flagstone was built on top of concrete pads, which sunk when the substrate beneath them settled. This caused water to drain towards the foundation instead of away from it, making the patio unsightly and creating cracks and tripping hazards. The customer had also installed two unique, large armour stones that connected to the patio, which sank significantly due to the weight. Ready to bring their backyard back to life, they reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling.
Project Manager Paul Mendell met with the customer to review their options. After creating a plan, a date was set for Foreman Bill McKeown and Installation Specialist Mark Sealy to complete the work. They injected PolyLevel® in numerous locations, slowly raising and leveling the concrete. PolyLevel® not only raises the concrete, but it also compacts the ground below it, helping to prevent future settlement. To seal the cracks, Bill & Mark used our NexusPro® Sealant. NexusPro® is resistant to UV light and extreme temperatures, creating a seal that not only looks great but lasts long too!
The homeowners are thrilled that they no longer have to worry about water draining towards their foundation and any tripping hazards. Their backyard looks great once again, and they can continue to take pride in their home and workmanship thanks to Canadian Concrete Leveling.

Joe showed the homeowner a demonstration of our PolyLevel® System, and a date was booked for the repair.
Foreman Bill McKeown started drilling As it’s injected, dime-sized holes in the concrete to inject our high-density polyurethane through the driveway. The polyurethane expands, compresses loose soil below and lifts the concrete. PolyLevel® cures in a matter of minutes and weighs 10% less than other lifting methods.
With his driveway repaired, the customer is extremely grateful for the work provided by Canadian Concrete Leveling. He was excited to use his garage later that same day and is happy to report there’s no more annoying bump to drive over.

Now, the homeowners are relieved to have a safe place for their family and friends.
Properly working equipment can make or break a business, especially when it’s seasonal. Even losing one day due to a power or equipment failure can cost thousands and leave customers with a bad taste.
A ski club owner in The Blue Mountains, Ontario, was concerned about losing the use of one of his lifts due to a concrete floor that had settled 2 inches. Beneath the floor was a conduit pipe that housed electrical cables and powered the ski lift, and the sinking floor was putting stress on the pipe. Not only could this cause a power outage, but it could also start a fire, shutting down the club and potentially hurting someone.
Wanting to deal with the situation before it caused an emergency, the owner reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling. Project Manager Joe McColl travelled to the ski club to meet with the customer for a free inspection. After checking out the building, it was clear to Joe that our PolyLevel® System could lift the concrete floor and remove the stress on the pipe.
Foreman Bill McKeown and Installation Specialist Mark Sealy started by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete, being careful not to hit the pipe. They injected our PolyLevel® Polymer beneath the floor, lifting and leveling it to the base of the wall. Any voids beneath the floor were also filled, stabilizing the concrete to prevent any future sinking.
The ski club owner is very pleased that there is no longer a risk of power failure or fire. His customers can rest assured knowing their day on the slopes won’t be impacted, and the customer is looking forward to a great winter in The Blue Mountains!
Nothing beats lounging around a pool in the summer. It’s something we look forward to during the colder months, but for a Creemore, Ontario, customer shifting concrete put her summer plans on hold.

For a customer in Caledon, Ontario, easy access was the last thing he thought about when going into his garage. Over the years, his patio had sunk in front of the garage entrance, causing water to pool. When winter came around, the water froze, becoming an even bigger hassle as well as a severe tripping hazard.
Luckily for him, Project Manager CJ Sharp was able to offer the perfect solution to make his garage easy to get to again. At first unfamiliar with our methods, we showed him how our products work to level concrete, and a date was set up for our team to repair the hazard.

We all take pride in our homes, but sometimes in different ways. Some of us love our basement lounge areas, our open-concept kitchens, or our beautiful backyards.
A customer in Mississauga, Ontario, has a meticulously manicured front yard. He adores his front garden and had a company pour a concrete walkway to complement it. After a few years, he noticed the concrete was sinking. He hated walking up to the house and seeing it every day, so he knew he had to do something.
After discovering us on a bus shelter billboard, the homeowner reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling. Project Manager Kyle O'Brien met with him and completed a thorough inspection of the entire walkway and steps. Kyle explained how the company likely never compressed the fill soils before pouring the concrete. As time went on, water washed away some of the soil, making the concrete sink.
The customer was frustrated that this wasn't a repair he could take care of himself. Kyle assured him we could repair the concrete in a day's work with little disruption, and the customer's worries were quickly fading away.

Winter is a hazardous time for many of us. Icy roads and walkways, snow falling off of roofs, and freezing temperatures – all of these conditions can be risky, so we do what we can to keep things safe.
A customer in Mississauga, Ontario, was dealing with a sinking front step. The concrete had settled significantly, leading to an impression in the ground where water was pooling. The client was tired of slipping on the frozen pool each winter, so he decided to reach out to Canadian Concrete Leveling.
Project Manager Joe McColl met with the customer and inspected his front walkway. Joe determined that a gap beneath the concrete caused the slab to sink. Joe explained to the customer how voids form and how our PolyLevel® System can fill them. PolyLevel® is a mixture of polymers that expands beneath the concrete. As the polyurethane expands, it lifts the slab while filling any cavities beneath the concrete.
Project Manager Bill McKeown started the repair by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete surface. He used these holes to inject our high-density polyurethane. Once the slab was lifted, Bill sealed the seam with our NexusPro® Sealant System. NexusPro® provides a UV-resistant, watertight seal that keeps water out for years to come.
The customer is very happy with the job done by the entire Canadian Concrete Leveling team. He appreciates how upfront and honest Joe was and Bill’s timeliness and hard work.

Our foreman, Billy McKeown used our patented PolyLevel™ Injection System to lift and level the concrete.

A Thornhill, Ontario, customer gave us a call after noticing his driveway was sinking where it met the garage floor. He was concerned someone would trip and fall at some point, so after meeting with Project Manager Joe McColl he decided to bring us in to complete the repair.

Most homes have some sort of walkway that surrounds the house. It could be flagstone, gravel, or a more unique material, but traditionally they’re made from concrete slabs.
A customer in Toronto, Ontario, has a sinking path outside of his home. The concrete had settled towards the garage, creating a trip hazard. Water was also pooling next to the garage foundation, and the customer was worried about it seeping down.
The customer wanted the problem fixed but was growing tired of only seeing expensive and disruptive solutions. After meeting with Project Manager Joe McColl, he knew Canadian Concrete Leveling was the perfect option.
Foreman Bill McKeown started the repair by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete surface. Through these ports he injected our high-density polyurethane system, PolyLevel®. The polymers mix when injected, expanding beneath the slab. As the concrete expands it lifts the concrete and fills any gaps below. Once Bill completed the lift, he patched the holes with fresh concrete.
The customer is delighted that he found an alternative solution to the costly options he first saw. He enjoyed watching Bill work and appreciates the honesty from Joe McColl.
When you make a significant investment or repair at your home, you want to make sure everything else is in proper working order too.
A customer in North York, Ontario, was getting ready to install a new wooden deck in their backyard. The deck sits flush with the pool deck, but the pool slabs had settled away from the deck over time. This created a tripping hazard between the two materials.
The customer wanted to fix the concrete before redoing the deck, so he reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling. Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the customer and inspected the backyard. Kyle determined that soils had washed away from beneath the slabs. The customer wasn’t sure how we could fill the void without removing any concrete, so Kyle showed him a video demonstrating our PolyLevel® System.
As PolyLevel® is injected through dime-sized holes, it expands beneath the concrete. This process lifts the concrete while compressing any fill material below and filling any gaps. Once the repair is done, we patch the injection ports with fresh concrete. Foreman Bill McKeown worked hard repairing the concrete before showing the customer the completed work.
The customer is relieved we were able to repair the concrete before replacing the deck. He appreciates that we didn’t have to bring any heavy equipment through his backyard and enjoyed watching the process take place.

As any property manager knows, being in business is no easy task. Whether you manage an apartment building or a plaza, there’s a lot you have to be responsible for. Two of your biggest concerns are damage to one of your properties and the rare, unfortunate case of someone getting hurt.
For a property manager in Toronto, Ontario, sinking concrete not only led to necessary repairs, but it also caused a slip and fall accident. A plaza in Toronto was a popular stop for customers to visit stores, but a sinking sidewalk had caused numerous concrete pads to shift and crack.

Our system also fills any voids present beneath the surface, protecting the concrete from future settlement.
The customer was so impressed with our solution that he brought us back the following year to repair a few different spots on the sidewalk. He is happy that he no longer needs to worry about his customers falling.
Planning for retirement is exciting, but also a lot of work. It takes a lot of financial planning, but the reward of enjoying your golden years is well worth it.
A customer in Sebright, Ontario, recently purchased a cottage property. He had torn down the original building but wanted to keep the garage as a place to work on his classic cars with his son during his retirement.

A building manager in Ajax, Ontario, received a few complaints from tenants about sinking concrete in front of the parking lot. The area became a tripping hazard and a troublesome spot for pooling water.
Project Manager Joe McColl inspected the concrete at the strip mall. Joe explained to the customer that voids under the slab make the concrete sink. The customer did not want to deal with the expensive hassle of new concrete and closing the stores for a few days.
To his delight, the manager learned he could leave the stores open during the installation and use the concrete later the same day. Joe explained how our PolyLevel® System repairs the concrete using high-density polyurethane injections. This solution is non-invasive – a 300-foot hose pumps polyurethane to voids under the concrete.
Foreman Bill McKeown started the repair by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete surface. As he injects the polyurethane beneath the slabs, the concrete lifts back to grade level while compressing fill soils below. All spaces and cavities are filled fixing the concrete issues permanently.
