Sinking concrete often occurs in the high-traffic areas around your home, such as walkways, landings, driveways and garage floors. For example, this home in Hamilton, Ontario, had a sinking front walkway and garage threshold, causing the homeowners to worry about their family or their guests tripping. The problem was going on for a while, but the homeowners wanted to find a permanent solution that would not be invasive, take long, and be inexpensive. Canadian Concrete Leveling was their solution and our Project Manager, Danny Dos Santos, went to the home to give our new customers a free quote using our PolyLevel® system.
The first approach
Notice the threshold prominent in this photo. This was taken on the inspection day.
Where they meet
Where the driveway and the walkway meet, it was unlevelled causing another tripping hazard.

The front walkway before the lifting process.
The drill holes were in place, now it is time to inject our high-density polyurethane in the concrete to fill the voids underneath and lift the driveway to match the threshold.
The injections are in and the threshold is minimized. No more tripping in and out of the garage.
