    Sinking Concrete Threatens Pool Stability in Penetanguishene, Ontario

    Being away from a property can be a stressful situation. Many cottage owners go through this every winter, so doing what you can to prepare is essential. 

    A customer in Penetanguishene, Ontario, had a pool situated near the water, and a retaining wall supported the patio. The pool deck had settled over the years, and water was pooling between the deck and retaining wall. The owner was concerned that a flash-freeze could push out the retaining wall and possibly cause it to lean or collapse.

    Looking for a solution without having to redo the wall, the customer called Canadian Concrete Leveling. Project Manager Paul Mendell met the customer at his cottage and inspected the pool deck. The customer was happy to hear we could remedy his problem without any major disruptions. 

    Foreman Kyle McKeown used our PolyLevel® polyurethane to lift the concrete slabs. By injecting our system through dime-sized holes, we were able to lift the deck a few inches, bringing the patio back to grade level and eliminating any pooling water. 

    The customer is delighted with the work done. Their pool deck is protected, and they can be away from their cottage with peace of mind.

    Sinking Walkway Puts Entire Family at Risk in Oakville, Ontario

    Having a large family means people of all ages and sizes coming into your home. It could be your young cousins coming to visit or elderly grandparents, but either way, we do what we can to make our home inviting and safe for them.

    A customer in Oakville, Ontario, was dealing with sinking front concrete steps. The way it looked didn’t bother him, but he was concerned someone would trip and fall at some point. Each winter, snow and water would pool in the spot as well, turning part of his front walkway into a skating rink. Rather than waiting for someone to hurt themselves, he decided to call Canadian Concrete Leveling.

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the customer and inspected his front walkway. Kyle explained how our PolyLevel® and NexusPro® Systems work, and the customer was excited to book a date for the repair.

    PolyLevel® is made from two polymers that combine to form a high-density polyurethane. When the mixture is injected below the concrete, it expands, compressing fill soils and lifting the slab. PolyLevel® weighs less than 10% of other lifting methods and cures in 15 minutes rather than 24 hours. 

    NexusPro® is a flexible, waterproof sealant that keeps moisture and debris out of concrete cracks and seams. NexusPro® is UV resistant and cures in only an hour. 

    Foreman Kyle McKeown started by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete surface to use as injection ports. After lifting the concrete with our high-density polyurethane, the holes were patched with fresh concrete. 

    The customer is very happy that everything was so non-invasive and efficient. He was pleasantly surprised that he could use the area the same day and has peace of mind knowing safety is no longer a concern.

    Enjoying your backyard pool with friends and family is fun, but only when the area is safe. 

    In Mississauga, Ontario, a customer reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling to deal with their sinking concrete pool deck. The customer enjoyed sharing the space with her friends and their kids, but sinking concrete made the deck hazardous. One child had even cut his toe on the raised edge. 

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the client and inspected her backyard. Kye explained to her how our PolyLevel® System could lift the sinking slabs back to grade. She was happy to hear about our non-invasive solution, and a date was set for the repair. 

    Foreman Kyle McKeown started by drilling dime-sized holes in the surface of the concrete. He injected our high-density polyurethane through these injection ports, where it expands beneath the concrete. This lifts the slab while compressing any loose soil below.

    The customer is happy she was able to repair the concrete before it was too far gone. She’s excited to have company over again and can’t wait to tell them that the concrete is safe.

    Sometimes things fail even when everything looks perfectly fine. There could be something going on behind the scenes, but it’s an annoying thing to deal with.

    In Mississauga, Ontario, a customer reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling after growing concerned about their back step. The entire step had settled over the last year, creating a serious tripping hazard. Water was also an issue, pooling near the steps and freezing in the winter.

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the homeowner and inspected his back patio. The customer thought he would need to remove and redo the steps when Kyle first arrived. After hearing about our PolyLevel® System, the customer’s eyes lit up. He was thrilled to find a non-invasive solution that could be done in a day’s work.

    Foreman Kyle McKeown used our high-density polyurethane injections, PolyLevel®, to lift the step back to a level and safe grade. As our system is injected, it expands, raising the concrete and compressing any fill soils below.

    The customer is relieved that his concrete is repaired. He’s happy it was a “quick but long-term fix” and has peace of mind knowing his investment is protected.

    Front Garden Tarnished by Sinking Concrete in Mississauga, Ontario

    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. 

    Foreman Bill McKeown used our PolyLevel® System to lift and level the concrete. PolyLevel® is injected through dime-sized holes where it expands beneath the slabs. Bill carefully lifted the walkway and steps, removing any tripping hazards and improving the gardens' look.

    The customer feels excellent knowing he made the right choice. His garden is back up to his standards, and the front of his home is safe again.

    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.

    Having a beautiful property is a sense of pride for many people. We make sure our home is looking its best no matter what. When the yard or the house needs attention, it becomes a top priority on the ever-popular to-do list.

    An older couple in Toronto, Ontario, decided to call Canadian Concrete Leveling to look at their sinking front porch. The section directly below their mailbox had settled, and each winter, water would pool and freeze. It made it difficult to get the mail safely, and they didn’t like how the front of the house looked as a result.

    Project Manager Kyle O'Brien met with the couple and inspected their front porch.  They were happy to hear how easily our solution can be installed, and they excitedly booked a date for the repair.

    Foreman Bill McKeown injected our PolyLevel® high-density polyurethane beneath the concrete slab to lift the concrete. This application also compresses fill soils below to prevent this issue from returning. Once Kyle was done, he patched the injection holes with fresh concrete.

    The couple is delighted with the repair. They were impressed with how easy the installation was and our team's professionalism. Unfortunately, they've dealt with dishonest contractors before but were very happy to find an honest company to deal with finally.

    Pooling Water Threatens Kids at Daycare in Brampton, Ontario

    A daycare is more than just a place for kids to go while they’re parents are busy. Kids learn how to interact with others and enjoy some playtime during their time at daycare too. It’s extremely important that the kids stay safe, and sometimes that requires upkeep outside of normal maintenance.

    A daycare owner in Brampton, Ontario, was dealing with sinking concrete right outside of the entrance. Water was pooling there, and whenever the temperatures dropped ice would form.

    Looking for a solution to eliminate the chance of ice buildup, the customer reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling. Project Manager Paul Mendell met with the owner and assessed the situation. 

    Foreman Kyle McKeown used our PolyLevel® high-density polyurethane to lift the concrete slabs back to their original pour height. PolyLevel® is injected as a liquid and then expands beneath the concrete, lifting the slab while stabilizing the soils beneath. 

    The daycare owner is thrilled that his establishment is safe once again. The kids can use the walkway without any hazards, and the concrete is protected from further settlement.

    One Day of Work Fixes Six Years of Sinking Concrete in Ajax, Ontario

    Many people have been using their pools more than ever this year. We can’t travel around due to COVID-19, so people have been bringing their backyards back to life.

    A customer in Ajax, Ontario, has had sinking concrete in his backyard for close to six years. He had been using the pool more than ever this summer, so the concrete was becoming more of an issue and he was concerned what would happen in the future.

    After meeting with Project Manager Kyle O’Brien and seeing our solution, the customer was eager to set up a date for the repair. 

    Foreman Bill McKeown started the repair by drilling dime-sized holes throughout the concrete slabs. He used these holes as injection ports for our PolyLevel® high-density polyurethane, which expands below the surface. This lifts the concrete and compresses any fill soils, helping to prevent the issue from returning. 

    The customer is happy that his pool deck is level and safe. “From my initial call to yourself (Mary), then Kyle coming out to give me a quote to Bill completing the work - all of you have been so helpful and professional and a total pleasure to work with and the results are amazing - Better than I even expected,” he said.

    A pool is typically a pretty popular area at a home. Everyone enjoys hopping in for a quick dip, and parents are used to supervising their kids for hours on end. 

    A family in Brooklin, Ontario, had a beautiful pool with a sinking pool deck. The concrete surrounding the pool was sinking and cracking, creating quite a tripping hazard. The family’s teenage kids used the pool regularly, and they were concerned about someone tripping. They were almost used to living with the eyesore but decided it was time to take care of it.

    They reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling and met with Project Manager Kyle O’Brien. Kyle inspected the concrete pool deck and showed the homeowners exactly how we would repair the concrete.

    Foreman Bill McKeown used our PolyLevel® system to lift and level the concrete slabs. The high-density polyurethane expands beneath the concrete to compress the fill soils and lift the slabs, preventing the issue from returning. 

    The family is thrilled that their pool is safe again. Their kids can use the backyard without the parents worrying so much, and the ugly eyesore is finally gone.

    Concrete Pool Deck Sinks Away from Wooden Patio in Whitby, Ontario

    We all want our backyards to look great, and we put a lot of work to achieve this goal. When something gets in the way that’s out of our control, it can be understandably frustrating. 

    A homeowner in Whitby, Ontario, has a beautiful backyard with a pool and a wooden deck. The concrete around his pool used to sit flush with the deck, but over time, the slabs had settled. This created a dangerous and unsightly lip between the concrete and wood boards. Tired of looking at the hazard, the customer decided to call Canadian Concrete Leveling.

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the frustrated client and inspected his backyard. The customer was concerned the concrete and deck would have to be redone. To his surprise, Kyle showed him how we could lift and level the concrete in just a day’s work and with minimal disruption.

    Eager to learn more, the customer asked what made our product stand out against our competitors.

    Kyle explained that we use a system called PolyLevel®, which uses a combination of two different polymers. As these polymers are mixed beneath the concrete, they expand, lifting the slab and compressing fill soils below. PolyLevel® weighs less than 10% of the material weight the competition uses and cures in less than an hour. 

    Foreman Kyle McKeown started the repair by drilling dime-sized holes in the concrete surface as injection ports. He injected our PolyLevel® System in a controlled manner, lifting the concrete back to a level grade with the deck.

    The customer is very relieved that we could do the work without destroying half of his backyard, as other companies had proposed. His pool deck is secure and protected, and the risk of tripping has been eliminated.

    Watching kids grow from infant to toddler is an exciting time for any parent. Children are starting to find their sense of curiosity during this age, and love to explore everywhere they can.

    For parents in Oshawa, Ontario, an unsafe pool deck forced them to bring a halt to their kid’s backyard adventures. A cracked and uneven pool deck was a huge tripping hazard for their little ones and was a sore spot when having company over. They take pride in their home and unfortunately, inherited the cracks when they purchased the house, not realizing it would be such an issue. 

    Tired of the embarrassment and looking to give some freedom back to their kids, they reached out to Canadian Concrete Leveling.

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the family at their home and inspected the pool deck. He recommended our PolyLevel® injection System to level the concrete slabs and our NexusPro® System to seal the cracks. 

    The customers booked a date for the repairs, and Foreman Kyle McKeown and Installation Specialist Mark Sealy completed the work. After a few minimally invasive injections to lift the concrete slabs and fill any voids, the tripping hazards were gone. The cracks were sealed, preventing moisture from getting beneath the concrete. Our sealant process also improves the aesthetic of the concrete significantly. 

    The customers are thrilled they can finally enjoy their pool without the hazards looming over them. Their sense of pride for their backyard has returned, and they’re happy to have friends and family over once again!

    Redoing your backyard can be a massive undertaking, but it’s worth it when you see the final result.

    A customer in Cobourg, Ontario, was starting his backyard renovation. The client has recently retired, and his new backyard was his top priority. He knew how important it was to level his concrete pool deck before he started, and the backyard was borderline unusable due to the failing concrete. 

    Project Manager Kyle O’Brien met with the homeowner and inspected the backyard. The client was expecting Kyle to say he needed to have new slabs poured but was presently surprised by our solution.

    Kyle explained that our PolyLevel® System uses high-density polyurethane injections to lift the concrete back to a level grade. The customer was concerned about the issue returning, but Kyle showed him a video demonstrating how our system also compresses soils below.

    Foreman Kyle McKeown was tasked with completing the repair. Kyle installed our PolyLevel® System to lift the concrete back to grade. Once he was finished, he patched the injection holes and showed the customer the completed repair.

    The homeowner is thrilled that his concrete is repaired. He knew he needed the work done before redoing his backyard, and he was excited that the first step was complete.
