This home in Vancouver had a serious case of sunken slabs. In the before and after images, you can see that the foundation had not sunk, but the concrete slabs sunk significantly. This left gaps between the concrete slabs and foundation and sunken areas around the slabs. So, this homeowner contacted True Level Concrete to perform concrete lifting to bring the slab back into place and re-enforce the structural integrity of the floor.
It was no question that this job called for PolyLevel. PolyLevel Foam was the ultimate solution for concrete lifting for this floor. PolyLevel can bring the slabs back up to proper level, as well as ensure stability and security.
PolyLevel foam is an ideal, and quick fix for lifting concrete slabs that are settling or sinking. First, our crew inspected the layout and decided which locations were best to install the PolyLevel injection ports. Dispersed across the floor evenly, these ports were inserted to ensure maximum surface area coverage to offer the best support to the slabs.
Next, our crew began administering the PolyLevel Foam while monitoring the slabs levels.
PolyLevel Foam works by creating small holes through the concrete slabs and then injecting the lightweight PolyLevel foam through the ports and beneath the slabs. This foam then expands when it is injected into the ground and begins to cure. This forms a high strength, evenly distributed cushion for the slab to sit on. The foam expanding and curing helps lift sunken areas of concrete back up to their original elevation level and ensures stability.
PolyLevel also helps prevent future concrete shifting from occurring as the gaps or voids under the concrete and within the soil particles get filled.
Our crew administered the PolyLevel carefully and strategically to ensure that all areas of the concrete slab were lifted and levelled to meet the remaining foundation and provide support for the floor.
For the final touch, our team refilled the holes left by the PolyLevel ports and also filled in some large gaps where the concrete had broken due to the sunken slab.
This entire repair process took our crew less than a couple of hours with the final product being an evenly levelled and supported slab; the perfect canvas to install flooring.
