A front staircase landing was undergoing some sloping and tripping hazards. This sinking concrete pad is not only a tripping hazard, but in wet and icy months, it is a slipping hazard. To cater to guests and add another safety layer, the homeowners wanted to level the concrete. Around this time, the homeowners were undergoing home renovations and did not want to invest much into re-pouring the concrete since the concrete was in good condition. Thankfully, Canadian Concrete Leveling can lift the concrete to its original position.
Home visits are in two stages; once the phone call is made, we schedule an appointment with one of our Project Managers, who provides an accurate yet honest estimate. Then, on a later day, we have our installation team come to the home and start the work. First, matt Ruskin, one of our Project Managers, arrived at the house and provided a schematic of how the installation team will lift the concrete pad to its norm. Next, Kyle McKeown, our installation supervisor, came on a later day to start the job. Kyle will be using our polyurethane injections to lift the slab and eliminate all hazards. The good news is that the polyurethane, known as PolyLevel®, is quick expanding, durable, and lightweight, which doesn't add any extra weight to the soil underneath. If the earth beneath undergoes a ton of weight and pressure, it will aid in the sinking process. The injections took under half an hour and lifted the concrete to a remarkable level.
The homeowners were ecstatic about how fast the process was, and the worry of tripping and slipping was at bay!
