Coquitlam concrete lifting and crack repair

Garage and walkway repair


These homeowners from Coquitlam called True Level because they had a house with significant settlement on their front walkways and garage. They were worried about compromising the house’s structural integrity and didn’t want it to worsen. There were also tripping hazards and water pooling issues.

Some of the symptoms detected were:
  1. The garage door didn’t seal anymore.
  2. Floating step in the garage.
  3. There was a step that was too tall to step up comfortably in the front door walkway.
  4. The front door walkway slopes towards their foundation putting the house’s structural integrity at risk.
  5. Trip hazard at the shorter walkway.


True Level installers arrived on-site, reviewed the area with the homeowner, and prepared the work area. We started the installation by drilling holes in the concrete slab for the injection ports. Then, PolyLevel foam was injected under the garage’s slabs, filling the voids and allowing a steady and controlled lift. After the garage was lifted, the installers used a mechanical lift on the sidewalk to bring the driveway up to match the garage.  At last, we used Nexus Pro to seal the cracks on their driveway and control joints to prevent future settlement.

Here’s the process step by step:

  1. Drill holes where PolyLevel is to be installed
  2. Inject PolyLevel to fill all voids and lift settled concrete
  3. Patch holes and seam cracks
  4. Use Nexus Pro to seal the cracks
  5. Clean site

The homeowners were happy that their garage and sidewalk were lifted back into their original position.
