Residential Photo Album: Sinking Concrete Creates a Steep Step in Mississauga, Ontario
Winter is a time for heavy coats, warm drinks, and planning your next summer renovations.
In Mississauga, Ontario, a customer called us during the winter in preparation for the spring and summer. His back and front steps were sinking, creating quite a steep step into the home.
Project Manager Paul Mendell met with the homeowner and inspected the concrete. The customer was thrilled that we had a solution that didn’t require ripping up the concrete, and a spring date was set for the repair.
Foremen Bill and Kyle McKeown started by drilling dime-sized holes into the concrete to inject our PolyLevel® solution. PolyLevel® is made from a high-density polymer and expands beneath the concrete to lift the slabs and compress the fill soils below.
The homeowner is ecstatic with the work done by Canadian Concrete Leveling. He had a previous quote that required tearing up the concrete and would have taken several days, so he was delighted we were able to complete the repair in a matter of hours.

The space between the concrete step and the step into the home was over two inches
The gap was large enough that the blue insulation foam was showing through
Back Steps After
Bill and Kyle evenly lifted the steps back to grade
Front Steps After
