Avoid tripping hazards early. Concrete does shift over the years, and it's best to stop it before it gets out of control. For example, our client in Kitchener, Ontario, had a concrete slab back patio sink by two inches. The two-inch recession formed a lip at the back sliding door and the rest of the walkway compared to the even front half. The sinking patio slabs caused water to affect the foundation and create tripping hazards. The homeowners wanted to fix the problem since they wanted to entertain in the future, and a few family members had already tripped on the slabs. The solution proposed by Canadian Concrete Leveling was exactly what they were looking for while keeping the existing concrete slabs.
Project Manager, Andy Moncrieff, arrived and started assessing the property. With Andy providing schematics of what work would be done, the homeowners were excited to see the transformation. When Kyle and Aidan McKeown arrived on the installation day, they started the work. They started with the lowest slabs and then worked up from there. PolyLevel® injections were made at the points with the most voids underneath to lift the slabs to match the rest of the patio. With little to no time raising the slabs, all was levelled to perfection. Next, it was time to permanently seal the slabs. They used our NexusPro® sealant amongst the joints to provide a clean finish between the slabs and prevent water from coming in. NexusPro® is UV-resistant fends off chemical reactions. With anxiety set at bay for those who will now be visiting the home, tripping hazards are no longer present and no risk of water leaking into the foundation. Two inches changed a home significantly.
