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.
