Garage Floor Lift & Stabilization

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 by Billy McKeown

Challenge

Conditions where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink is not uncommon in Ontario and is often the result of shifting, a weak soil base or erosion. Canadian Concrete Leveling can fix sinking concrete problems for your driveway, sidewalk, patio, pool area, garage floor slabs or basement flooring. We use PolyLevel® Polymer Injection to lift and restore concrete slabs to a level position.

 

Solution for Garage Floor Slabs

Over time, concrete can sink causing uneven surfaces in your garage creating dangerous trip hazards. We’re able to raise a garage floor slab as level as possible to improve the slope from the back of the garage to the front allowing water to exit the garage. Once lift is achieved all other holes are injected to stabilize and void fill the rest of the slab. The garage is ready to use the same day. Here’s how we fix it:

  • Drill 5/8" holes (size of a penny) 4' on centre
  • Poly goes in as a liquid and expands 20x its liquid state
  • Zone of influence is 5' to 7' and that’s why holes are drilled 4' apart – poly overlaps itself
  • Inject in lowest area first
  • Poly literally adds no weight to base soils
  • Improves load-bearing strength exponentially

 

Advantages of PolyLevel® Polymer Injection

  • Do not have to rip and re-pour
  • Keeps concrete out of landfills
  • Lightweight PolyLevel material with accurate, high-capacity lifting action
  • Quick cure time – job can usually be completed in a matter of hours
  • Fast and non-intrusive installation
  • PolyLevel is fully waterproof
