A homeowner in Brampton was having trouble with their front steps. They began sinking a few years ago and kept progressively getting worse each year. The backyard patio also had a few slabs that were sinking towards the foundation. The issue with the concrete in the backyard stemmed from poor compaction when the patio was originally poured. Since the soils around the house were fairly loose when the patio was poured, the weight of the concrete compressed these soils leading to settlement in various areas. The front steps also suffered some settlement, however, there was also a large gap between the steps and the stoop which allowed for water to penetrate and wash away the substrate leaving gaps that the concrete then sunk into.
The customer’s mother lived with him and he was quite concerned that the large step at the front would make it difficult for her to enter and exit the house. The customer’s children also played basketball in the backyard on the concrete patio and he was concerned that the pooling water and trip hazards could be a safety issue.
The customer called Canadian Concrete Leveling to repair the issue. Foreman Kyle McKeown injected Polylevel foam beneath the concrete to lift and level the concrete. Our expanding foam compresses the substrate and then lifts the concrete, thus ensuring that the area is protected from further settlement.
The customer is satisfied that all the trip hazards have been removed from the concrete around his home and his patios are no longer sloping towards the foundation.
